CAPTURING THE ESSENCE OF FRIENDSHIP
BEHIND THE LENS OF A GALENTINE’S DAY CELEBRATION
Hi there! I’m Ben Cross, a Northeast Florida photographer passionate about capturing life’s most beautiful moments. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a Galentine’s Day event. A collaboration that brought together my love for photography and the incredible talent of Sam from Wicker Picnic.
THE PICNIC SETUP
Sam’s setup was nothing short of breathtaking. It was nestled in a picturesque back patio in downtown St. Augustine. The picnic featured vibrant florals, elegant table settings, and a cozy ambiance that perfectly encapsulated the spirit of Galentine’s Day. The weather created an ideal backdrop for the photoshoot. The natural light bouncing around the patio enabled me to capture the warm and vibrant essence of the event.
