Alessi + Josh • Amelia Island Driftwood beach engagement

March 26, 2018



Alessi + Josh

Big Talbot Island State Park, Jacksonville, Florida

I used to go to the Talbot Island parks as a kid growing up in Jax Beach, so when Alessi + Josh invited me up there for their engagement session I was so excited! They found this incredible beach full of amazing driftwood trees, and rocky tidepools tucked away in a quiet stretch of ocean for their engagement photo adventure. These two beach lovers got engaged on the beach, and share a love for the outdoors. Little did we know the overcast afternoon was about to reveal an incredible pink sunset! 

Before the sun sets today, I’ll love you a thousand different ways.
