Here’s a couple that wanted a Florida engagement shoot to capture their love where it began: in a city that’s both Amanda’s hometown and one founded by Jacob’s Spanish lineage. Inspired by the Spanish architecture and old world charm, they planned a couple stylish outfits and headed to the same spot where they had their first date. Amanda says, For fashion, we chose playful sophistication with a vintage glamour vibe, classical European infusion, and a slightly quirky edge.

Thanks to Jennifer Blair Photography for sending these snaps our way!

Some notes from Jennifer… Their romance is simply enthralling. They certainly have a vibe of old Hollywood glamour. Amanda even said that when she saw Jacob for the first time it felt like a scene from an old movie, especially since he was looking dapper in a suit.

A sequin skirt is sure to make for one unforgettable e-sesh. Jacob has an eye for style too, which Amanda attributes to the Latin ladies of his family. So great.

Their engagement story… Jacob proposed on Christmas Eve while his family was visiting from Nicaragua. During the family festivities, we escaped from the party to take a brief walk and inhale the brisk air. When we returned, he led me to his parents’ garden patio where everyone had lined up on either side of the entryway gazing at the canopied white Christmas lights. Suddenly a sign lit up that read, “Will you marry me Amanda Cherie?” His Latin romance warms my heart just thinking about it, and I can’t wait to marry him, also surrounded by Christmas lights.

A + J will say ‘I do’ this December at St. Augustine’s Night of Lights. Congrats guys!
