When I first met Aleksas and Nicole in their historic home in St. Nicholas in Jacksonville, FL, I knew they shared an adventurous type of love. These two are down to earth, share a passion for outdoors, and adore their cute pup Bailey. I met Nicole through a mutual friend, Sarah who I photographed a few months back (see her photos here!)

This was the first time I shot at Fort Caroline National Park, and I will definitely be back. Nicole was looking for a nature inspired engagement session full of greenery, water and an open field if we could find one. I gave Nicole and Aleksas a few options and Fort Caroline was the one they chose... how PERFECT! Their casual, complimentary plaid attire fit the scene and their personalities to a tee. 

I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in a few weeks at their historic home in St. Nicholas. A beautiful home near the river + a wrap around porch + a ceremony beneath a giant oak tree = a photographer's DREAM wedding!! Check back for some gorgeous photos!
