A meeting by chance. Pure luck is what drew these gentlemen, Carlos and Nik, to each other. They both were working as managers at two different stores in July of 2011 when their paths crossed in the food court at the mall, and they have been inseparable ever since. Their relationship officially began with a message on a cookie and eventually evolved rapidly into a proposal. Carlos took Nik to the place they had their first date, Broad Ave S., blindfolded in a car and popped the question on the beach much to Nik’s surprise on Christmas Eve of 2011. It comes as no surprise that these two chose the Naples Zoo as their wedding venue because it describes exactly what they are: WILD. So, it made perfect sense to shoot most of the engagement photos at the Zoo and see them in their natural habitat, haha. These two guys’ dynamic personalities really show how they fell in love and the saying “Opposites attract” comes immediately to mind when seeing these two together. Congratulations Nik and Carlos, we can’t wait to photograph your wedding at the zoo in January of 2014!
