Maria and Thad's beautiful engagement session was sent to us by the talented Jeremy Harwell of Harwell Photography. With some help from hair and makeup stylist Sheila Everitt, Maria looked absolutely lovely for the couple's retro-inspired shoot. We adore Maria's pale pink dress with floral embellished belt that she paired with a dramatic layered pink beaded necklace and full peony blossom tucked into her side chignon. Thad wore a muted blue button up with cuffed sleeves, suspenders and rolled up khaki pants with white classic canvas boat shoes giving their session a sweet Southern charm. The stunning tropical architecture of Alys Beach provided a spectacular backdrop for the day and set the tone for the couple's wedding in Maria's home country of Puerto Rico this May.
