Dana and Mikey are getting married in upstate New York this October. They have been together for 6 years and are very much head over heels! Dana told me a while ago that when she gets engaged (any day now), she wanted me to shoot their engagement session. Which I was so delighted to hear! She’s stunning. Mikey pulled the trigger on this proposal very soon after this request. They are so easy going, so much in love and were so open to all of my pit stop ideas along the trail in Myakka State Park. They taught me all about the Resurrection Fern, which has a totally engaging story. As we were shooting in the yellow swamp, I asked Dana to act as naturally as she could. Her response was to collect plant life around the area and to decorate Mikey as a woodland creature. It was perfect. I hope this shoot encompasses them in their time at this moment.
