Gainesville FL Engagement Photos

Gainesville FL Engagement Photos. Alana and Justin connected like many couples do these days – online. Their first date was spent at an amazing restaurant in Gainesville, Florida, enjoying lively conversation from a corner booth, chatting so long that they shut the place down. Their following dates involved tubing, picnics, explorations, and vacations and when the time was right, Justin proposed under a waterfall while visiting his family in South Africa.

This sweet and genuine couple chose their engagement session location mere hours before shooting, and the spur-of-the-moment decision proved worthwhile and romantic.


Their first look was slightly more formal. Justin wore a light blue shirt and navy pants, while Alana echoed her bridal excitement with a white lace dress. They also sported their most beaming smiles.

Their location teemed with ferns and tall trees that hung over the leaf-strewn path. A touch of sunlight soaked in through the canopy to warm their faces.


Their poses were simple; he would wrap his arms around her, or they would hold hands as they strolled. While perched on an oversized tree, the characteristic Spanish moss dripped from the branches in the background.

How beautiful is the ring Justin offered his bride-to-be? The stunning halo setting is both trendy and classic.

The couple’s second looks were more casual and fun. Alana wore a dark brown sleeveless blouse, skinny jeans, and boots. Justin kept it simple with a light collared shirt and jeans.

The looks of adoration and affection between these two were sincere and hard to deny.


If their engagement photos are any indication, Alana and Justin’s wedding in Gainesville, and their celebration in South Africa next year, will evoke a certain quiet romance that is both enviable and endearing, natural and authentic - much like the couple, themselves.
