Keegan + Brian

It all started when Keegan and her sister Krista  spotted Brian while playing paddle on the beach during a family vacation in Destin, Florida. They both thought Brian was cute, who working as a cabana boy as a summer job.  Brian definitely had eyes for Keegan, so she she started to bring him popsicles and cookies. Brian was intrigued…so intrigued that he picked up his phone + called his brother…which was rare for Brian. As Brian’s brother recalls, “I thought he was calling me because of an emergency, but nope all he said was, ‘Dude, I met this girl…I gotta go she’s bringing me ice cream!’” 

Seven years later, long distance, splitting time between the mountains in Breckenridge and the beach in Destin, Bryan asked Keegan to spend forever with him on Christmas Day last year. With Keegan’s love to travel and surf, they picked Costa Rica to get married. So much love surrounded the two of them. It was a perfect, intimate destination wedding at Lagarta Lodge on Playa Pelada. 

Congrats you two!

So you can imagine how interesting it is trying to schedule photo sessions in the late afternoon in Savannah in the summer — you want to take advantage of the late afternoon’s soft lighting, but you also..
