Serendipitous. That’s the word that comes to mind when I think of Eric and Viviana. Khaled and I have known Eric since before he graduated high school. His mom, Mary, and I became close friends when I worked in the corporate world years ago. She was my maid of honor and by my side on my own special day, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when Mary told us that Eric was engaged!

Now fast forward to a few weeks ago, meeting Eric and Viviana to discuss their photography needs over some delicious Chocolate Pi desserts and realizing that I have also known Viviana for years. Our families went to the same church and it was so sweet to experience how small our world really is.

After chatting with Eric and Viviana for a while, it’s easy to see how much fun they have as a couple (including his addiction to funky socks). We knew their engagement session would be adventurous- although we didn’t plan for the gusts of winds and rainstorms! Eric and Viviana embraced Florida’s unpredictable weather like pros and had so much fun! The evening ended at The Vinoy, with one of the most beautiful rainstorm portraits I have taken to date (see it below at the end of the blog feature).

Enjoy some of our favorites from their session, we can’t wait to see them again soon on their wedding day!
