Bridget & Chris’ Bright and Cheery Cocoa Beach Pier E-session
It’s totally unplanned but this seems to be the week of playful engagement shoots! Today I’d like you to meet Bridget and Chris who had a super fun e-session on the beach filled with bike rides, laughter, and sweet, cuddly moments as you can see in the above pic. 🙂
We have the always fabulous Sara and Jason Martin of Concept Photography (view their previously featured work + BTL interview) to thank for the beautiful photos. Here’s Sara with some behind-the-scenes info:
There is a special kind of magic that happens when a couple LIKES each other as much as they LOVE each other! Bridget + Chris are the perfect example 🙂 We met up with this adorable couple at the Cocoa Beach Pier for some engagement pics. We had not met them previously, so we had no idea how much fun we were in for!
Didn’t I say this photo shoot was fun? Well this is just the beginning! Before I show you the rest of the pics, I will leave you with the lovely Bridget who’s here to talk a little about her and Chris + how they got together:
Chris and I love sports. Chris plays hockey whenever he can and rides his road bike a lot. I love endurance events such as triathlons and Running marathons. We also bond over music & cooking (Chris is the better cook).
We met in Grad School at Colorado State University. We were assigned to work on a research project together and quickly became friends. Months later, a friend of ours set us up on a date (watching a NBA basketball playoff game) and I knew right away that I wanted to marry him. We moved to Wisconsin from CO two years ago and have been each others’ rock during the transition.
Their proposal story:
We got engaged on Sept 15th. I came home from a training run and Chris asked me to go to lunch. After I showered, Chris called me downstairs to show me something. We had a hardcover book made which was our first research project (the one we met working on). The book listed all the research results, but on the last page, Chris had “Will you marry me.” I was shocked. He skillfully recorded it all. Plus, now we have that book forever. – P.S. We did go to lunch after I stopped crying (tears of joy).
About the shoot and how it reflects the two of them:
We are getting married in Melbourne, FL & wanted our engagement photos to be on a beach. Cocoa Beach, Fl is where Chris’ family lives so it was a great location. We rented bikes for the photo shoot because we love biking & we wanted to show people that it’s okay to have fun and not take yourself so seriously all the time. Chris and I are playful outdoorsy people and pictures on a beach by the water really captured the way we enjoy life together.
Huge thanks as always, Sara and Jason for sending their gorgeous images my way, and congratulations Bridget and Chris! Happy wedding planning! 🙂
