This stunning couple met during their sorority and fraternity days at the University of Central Florida. Although they are now living apart for school & work, they wanted to return to their alma mater to capture their engagement photos. With it being graduation season there were tons of grads and photographers out shooting that day! Since Shandalyn & James aren’t local to Orlando I had not met them in person before the session. So when I showed up to the UCF fountain I saw James in his blue uniform from afar and though “Man, security is tight around here” LOL! Needless to say once I realized it was them I felt very safe the entire session knowing that Atlanta PD had my back. I love that he came in full uniform and it was definitely fun to shoot Shandalyn’s gorgeous engagement ring on his handcuffs! ;)
Even without the hardware, they were super sexy together and I loved every minute of it. They exchanged sultry glances the entire time and Shandalyn was stunning in her red bottom heels. Seriously I think you could be wearing a brown potato sack, but throw on those heels she was wearing and it’s like instant bombshell– am I right?! Her fashion was just to die for I seriously can’t imagine what her wedding dress must look like. The great news is that I get to found out later this year when they tie the knot at the Four Seasons Resort in Disney! I have no doubt their wedding day is going to be sexy time to the tenth power. <3 I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from their engagement session below.
