I + J | Riverfront Park Cocoa Beach Engagement

It's not every day that this night owl wakes up at to see the sunrise, but when I do I always enjoy every minute of it. I had so much fun meeting this adorable couple, and spending the morning watching the sun rise over the Indian River from the Riverside Park boardwalk. I had so much fun finally getting to meet Ikeesha & Johnathan, and I can't wait to photograph their wedding in Central Florida later this year. 

I loved their sense of classic, modern style. Johnathan wore a stylish orange bowtie, and an orange and white pocket square with a navy suit, which matched Ikeesha's scarf to a T, and seem to be loving their new move to Florida! After our morning at the park, we headed over to Cocoa Beach for part two of their lifestyle engagement photo shoot. 

If you're looking for a great outdoor photography or event location in the Brevard area, I would highly recommend Riverfront Park along Dellanoy Avenue right next to the charming historic Cocoa Village here in the Brevard/ Space Coast area. It covers 10 acres of green space, with waterfront pathways,  gazebos, an ampitheatre, boat launches, boardwalks, fishing spots, playgrounds, fountains and has some interesting architectural details, flowers and landscaping. It's a perfect place for a picnic! :)
