Brad and Jaimie are also huge Florida Gators Fans! So of course they chose to incorporate the Florida Gators into their Engagement session, why wouldn’t they? After all – my photo sessions are all about you!

We didn’t have to go far, since the Myakka City Fire Department has a great field nearby. It really gave them the country feel they were going for.

A little bit of Country Engagement

And lastly, I convinced Jaimie to bring a dress. I think engagement photos always should have one slightly dressier outfit. She, of course, gave it her country twist and it looked so sweet!

Scott + Jessica | ENGAGED | Christina Z Photography – Bradenton Engagement Photographer

Ready for a sweet country engagement? This was my kind of session! Jessica & Scott are planning a December wedding, and contacting me months ago about their engagement & wedding photos. They are such a sweet country couple! My kind of people. I planned their session at Hunsader Farms in East Bradenton, FL. At the last minute, I asked them if they would like to go to a flower field nearby and of course they were game! So we did half the session on the farm and half at the flower field. Oh & they brought their dog, Bella, along too! She was such a good girl. Here are some of my favorites…

The Anderson Wedding | Bradenton Florida Wedding Photographer – Christina Z Photography

Jessica & Travis were my first Bride & Groom, and I couldn’t have hand picked a more perfect couple for my first wedding. Although I was extremely anxious and nervous, that all disappeared when I arrived and met Jessica. They had a small wedding party, that just included their daughters. They were surrounded by family and friends, on a perfect Florida afternoon. The ceremony took place at Water Leaf right by the water and the reception followed in the clubhouse. It was gorgeous! The colors were the ever so popular Tiffany blue and gray. Every little detail was thought through. It was a perfect day and surely one that will forever be in my heart. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Anderson!

Ryan & Chelsea: ENGAGED | Bradenton Portrait Photographer – Christina Z Photography

Capturing your childhood best friend in pure engagement bliss = The Best Job in the World!

Chelsea and I were instant best friends when I moved next door in the 5th grade. From then on, we were in separable. Vacations, holidays, birthdays, slumber parties, dinner.. the list goes on. She stood by me when I got married, and I get to stand by her when she marries Ryan. I couldn’t be more thrilled, until I suggested I do her engagement photos (since I’m in the wedding). When she agreed that was the cherry on top.

Enough about my relationship with the bride-to-be, how about a sweet  love story… Chelsea had a jewelry party, and was bummed out because she wasn’t getting anything. To her surprise, Ryan purposed to her. In front of all her friends & family. <Cue the “awes”> How sweet?

When planning Chelsea & Ryan’s engagement session, they had suggested using H&H Nursery, since Ryan’s family owns it. It couldn’t have been more perfect. We even snuck over to the vineyards next door (with permission of course).  There were so many favorites of mine, I would clog Facebook‘s Newsfeed for hours… so without further ado, here is Ryan & Chelsea’s e-session.

Russell & Megan | ENGAGED

Russell & Megan have become like family to me over the years! I was so happy when Russell’s parents wanted to gift them with engagement photos. Megan immediately began the planning and she came up with the most adorable outfits for her session. There was also a certain someone she wanted to include in her session… Russell’s twin TJ! It was so much fun including him into their photos. A session I won’t forget…

Marissa & Dalton | PAINT WAR

What’s more fun than throwing some paint at your boyfriend? Taking pictures while doing it! DUH!! I saw this idea going around on Pinterest and just had to try it out. Of course I had to volunteer my beautiful little sister and her boyfriend! So when I was visiting in Bradenton, Florida we set it up and it was a great time! Lots of paint, giggles, smiles, a big mess & beautiful photos, it’d say that sounds like success! hehehe. Enjoy!
