March of 2017 I had the opportunity to photograph my cousin Chandler and his new fiancé Olivia. Because they are photographers themselves I was really excited to work with them on this. It felt like I was third-wheeling it on a fun date with them…we were all goofing off big time!
Being outside is something that is really important to Chandler so we went to the Conservation Park in Panama City Beach, FL and ran around on one of the hiking trails there. Now, I use the term “hiking” loosely because let’s not forget, we’re talking about northwest Florida here. Everything is flat, flat, flat and we have zero rocks. We made due though!
We went out as the sun was starting to drop low in the sky which made for the prettiest backlit pictures. Chandler and Olivia were so comfortable and fun-loving… they made my job easy. I wish I could just follow them around with a camera all the time… they might not be fans of that idea though.
