Sarasota Engagement Photographer

Romantic & Authentic Portrait Photography

Timeless & Whimsical Storytelling

SARASOTA + FLORIDA + WORLDWIDE




At Jonelle Forbes Photography, I offer a range of photography services to help you capture the special moments in your life, but let's be real, nothing beats capturing the love between two people! That's why my engagement and couple's sessions are one of my most popular services. I love nothing more than helping couples celebrate their love and capturing it in stunning images that will make your heart flutter every time you look at them.


During our engagement or couple's session, we'll work together to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I'll guide you through a variety of poses and prompts to capture the connection and love between you and your partner, in a way that feels natural and authentic. Whether you're looking for traditional, posed shots or more candid, documentary-style photos, I'm ready to make it happen!


We'll start by discussing your vision for the session, including location, outfit choices, and any props or accessories you'd like to include. I offer sessions in a variety of beautiful locations in Sarasota and the surrounding areas, including stunning beaches like Siesta or Lido Key, lush parks, and even urban settings for those edgy, city-loving couples.


During our session, we'll have a blast trying out different poses and silly prompts to get those genuine, natural moments of laughter and love. I'm all about capturing the essence of who you and your partner are as a couple and making sure that shines through in every photo.


After the session, I'll work my magic to carefully edit your images to ensure the best engagement photos. You'll receive a beautiful gallery of images that you can share with your loved ones and treasure for years to come. If you're interested in an engagement or couple's session, let's chat! I can't wait to work with you and create stunning images that celebrate your love!

You have the option to choose from a variety of locations for your photoshoot, including stunning beaches like Siesta Key, Lido Key, Anna Maria Island, or Longboat Key. In addition, we also offer the opportunity to shoot at iconic landmarks like Downtown Sarasota, The Ringling, and Selby Gardens, which provide unique and beautiful backdrops for your engagement or couples session.

If you are looking for a more urban and sophisticated setting, Downtown Sarasota is the perfect choice. With its mix of modern and historic architecture, it offers a diverse range of photo opportunities, from elegant storefronts to colorful street murals. The Ringling, on the other hand, is a world-renowned art museum and estate that boasts stunning gardens, sculptures, and architecture. Whether you want a romantic and classic feel or a modern and edgy vibe, The Ringling has it all.


For those who appreciate the beauty of nature, Selby Gardens is a breathtaking botanical garden that features a wide variety of tropical and subtropical plants. The gardens also offer unique features like koi ponds and picturesque bridges that create a serene and peaceful atmosphere. Whether you're looking for a dreamy and ethereal vibe or a vibrant and colorful one, Selby Gardens is the perfect choice. Please note additional fees do apply for locations that require a photo permit. 


No matter which location you choose, I will work closely with you to create personalized images that capture your unique love story. I will guide you through every step of the process, from choosing outfits to finding the perfect poses.
