“Gary and I met in New Orleans in August of 2013,” Erin says. “I always joke that it was love at first sight because the night we first met we also shared our first kiss. I was working in New Orleans as a local television broadcaster and Gary was visiting from Nashville on a brief work trip. It was truly serendipity that we ever crossed paths, but from the moment it happened we became inseparable. Five years later, we are planning the wedding of our dreams [Dec. 8, 2018] in Winter Park, Fla. As much as we love the sophisticated romance of our wedding venue and our first engagement shoot, we wanted to create some intimate and authentic images that capture our life in Miami. For our second engagement shoot with Houston-based Civic Photos we visited Española Way, a colorful and vibrant part of South Beach. This is a place we’ll visit for lunch and people-watching on the weekends. We finished the shoot at the modern and luxurious COMO Metropolitan Hotel. We love the Art Deco interior design of the rooms and the tropical-oasis vibes by the pool. The session was a blast to create and we could not be more pleased with the final images. No matter what the future holds for us or where we might live, we will always have these memories of Miami captured through the lens of Civic Photos.” Let’s take a closer look, shall we??
