Maresa + Ben | Palm Beach Island Elopement Portraits

by Emily Pogozelski

A warm weather elopement while most of the country is still wrapped up in winter weather gives off a magically happy vibe. Relaxing ocean breezes and swaying palm trees feel positively indulgent, which makes Jupiter a wonderful place to elope. I’m so glad Maresa + Ben wanted me to take their portraits while they were in town to get hitched! We wound up heading down to take a late afternoon walk along the intracoastal on Palm Beach Island, where we found breathtaking golden light and a lovely sunset behind the city skyline. Lots of favorites from this one, due partially to Maresa’s fantastic red sequined gown (and Ben’s matching custom bowtie). Thanks for a delightful afternoon, and wishing you a wonderful marriage! xoxo—Em

A perfect first look with the happiest of reactions! 

A requested pose… because Maresa was the one who popped the question. 😍

We finished our session at dusk by the iconic clocktower at the ocean side of Worth Avenue.
