Ashley and Tom’s Fort Lauderdale Engagement Shoot

Posted on December 8, 2009

The moment I mentioned Fort Lauderdale’s River Walk area to Ashley as a location possibility for her engagement shoot, the place instantly appealed to her. She wanted a spot with water in the background, but not necessarily the beach. She wanted some structures around, but not tall office buildings. River Walk turned out to be the perfect spot. As a South Florida photographer I have done engagement shoots in many different locations – most notably beach areas, Vizcaya, the Morikami – places like that. Every once in a while, a client really wants to do their engagement shoot somewhere a little different – like the River Walk.


What is so wonderful about this location is not only the waterway that runs behind it, but the quaint feeling the buildings all around provide. Right in the center of Fort Lauderdale, the River Walk is a park like setting with trees, benches and a pretty gazebo. There’s also a large pavilion in the Esplanade which is often used for wedding ceremonies. The varied elements here allow for some terrific shots as you will see here. Ashley and Tom were thrilled with the location and enthusiastic about trying all kinds of fun shots as we walked through the area.


We had a great time with this engagement shoot and I am thoroughly looking forward to photographing Ashley and Tom’s upcoming South Florida wedding this April at Mizner Country Club.
