Real Couples // Sunset Beach Romance: Will + Mia

Will and Mia have both dedicated their lives to working with the special needs community — she's a behavior analyst and he's on the educational/administrative side. Mia even has a part-time photography business that specializes in working with kids with autism. They got married last year and searched a long time to find a place in their home state that felt right for them. They landed on Siesta Key Beach, a natural and wild white quartz beach on the Gulf of Mexico. A year later, they knew they wanted their anniversary shoot to involve swimming and playing on that same beach.
