Joao + Nicole // Travelogue inspired St. Augustine Engagement Walkabout

Joao & Nicole celebrated their engagement by exploring their favorite local Florida getaway- St. Augustine! I am always up for an excuse to travel- so I was excited for the invitation to explore a beautiful Florida's historic side. Since Joao is a friend, we decided to make it a double date so Joshua came along too. 

As a photographer, I love the freedom of being able to explore a new location with nothing but a map, a camera in hand and two wonderfully in love people to photograph.  Having the luxury of a full afternoon and evening was extra fun! I can't wait to share the rest of Joao & Nicole's photos from our fun St. Augustine adventure.

This little series is taken by the streetside courtyard at the Augustine Inn, where they will tie the knot in Spring 2015.

Location • Augustin Inn, Historic St Augustine, Castillo de San Marcos, Flagler College

Highlight of the day • Watching the re-enactors at the Castilo fire a rather small, but very real canon! 

Lunch Date • Casa Maya - We ate on a lovely little New Orleans style balcony overlooking the cobblestone pedestrian streets. Great people watching, and their steak fajitas made for two very happy gents!

Wine Tasting • Vino del Grotto Florida Fruit Wine- orange blossom honey wine was a hit, and I love how they source as many organically, locally grown fruit products as possible. They even had carrot wine!
