When Christine and Tammy from Rubber Boots Photography sent over Mandy and Dominic's adorable engagement session at the Deering Estate, I couldn't wait to share it with you. The fun, laid-back (and gorgeous!) couple wanted their personalities and backgrounds to shine through in their session, and Christine and Tammy captured that oh-so-perfectly.
As Christine tell us, "When we asked Mandy and Dominic how they met, the two of them looked at each other and giggled. Apparently Dominic had a plan from the beginning to win Mandy's heart, but Mandy only saw him as a friend. After a while of Dominic taking Mandy to dinner and a movie as a friend and as he described it, 'slowly working his way into her heart', Mandy said she realized she was head over heels in love with him. Since then they've been inseparable and are currently planning their November 2012 wedding at the Ron W. Shane Center in Miami Beach.
"Mandy and Dominic wanted their engagement session to reflect their laid-back personalities and pay homage to their backgrounds. They chose the beautiful backdrop of the Deering Estate at Cutler in the heart of Miami. Photographing Mandy and Dominic was like following the couple on a romantic date, complete with champagne and a blanket to watch the ocean on. To represent their hometowns, each of them brought their favorite beer to toast with. Dominic chose Red Stripe to represent his family's Jamaican heritage and Mandy chose Oberon beer to represent her home state of Michigan. We're looking forward to their wedding day in November!"
Thanks so much, ladies, for giving us a peek at this lovely session and your gorgeous work. Mandy and Dominic, congratulations on your engagement, and best of luck with the wedding planning! We can't wait to see how it turns out.
