Shannon & Matty

Posted on September 26, 2016

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Shannon and Matty's South Florida engagement shoot at the Morikami Japanese Gardens. This enthusiastic couple was great to work with and we got some fabulous shots that day. Below is their story.


This particular location is one of my favorite spots in all of South Florida. It is truly picturesque and unique, between all the various gardens and the lake  this site is always a wonderful place to schedule a shoot or have a wedding.


Matty and Shannon are from the same area and were acquaintances for a while but didn't become get close until they moved to Tallahassee to attend The Florida State University where they were brought together by mutual friends (their roommates at the time). They just spent time together as friends until one day a friend of Shannons was flirting (at least what she perceived to be flirting at the time) with Matty and she got jealous and walked off - which was super confusing to Shannon at the time. Matty thought this was hysterical, in typical Matty fashion, and she was SO embarrassed. Then one night Shannon went out to a local club with a group of friends and she managed to stray away from the herd and for some reason she sent him a text that said "help! I'm lost!" and he came to her rescue! And the rest is history!


Shannon and Matty chose the Morikami for their engagement shoot site because they wanted to be outside, surrounded by water, bridges, and beautiful trees. When we suggested Morikami and they checked out the pictures online, they both loved the grounds and the many different places to take pictures. It's a beautiful place and they can't wait to go back again!


Their wedding will be held in March of next year at Stonebridge Country Club in Boca Raton. They are planning a traditional, elegant wedding full of family, friends, and love! They said that they are very excited and so glad they found me to capture these memories for them as they will cherish them for a lifetime!


Stonebridge Country Club is one of the premiere country clubs in South Florida and is a popular spot for Boca Raton weddings. Easy to reach, just off of state road 441, Stonebridge Country Club offers everything anyone would want for a classy and scenic wedding venue. The main country club ballroom is elegant and quite large and the entire complex is surrounded by a lush golf course with beautifully manicured grounds and endless opportunities for photos. Securing a golf cart to go around in helps cover more ground and allows for a wide variety of photos to be taken.


I hope you enjoy Shannon and Mattys engagement photos and we know that their wedding photos will be just a gorgeous!
