These two are just the sweetest together and so much fun! We literally had the perfect session with Lisa and Tushar. Gorgeous weather, perfect outfits and beautiful people both inside and out! We can not wait until their wedding 11.13.15 at the Vinoy!!
We almost had rain for Ashley and Mike's session on Anna Maria, but it turned out to be so beautiful. There was even a rainbow over the water!! They are going to have an elegant and rustic wedding at Powel Crosley in November and we can't wait!!!!! xoxoxo
Jennifer and AJ love the outdoors, fishing, and the beach. We used that backdrop for their engagement session. I especially love the massive crazy tree! Walking along we happened to find a tree with lots of initials carved in and there was a big heart with an A + J already carved for them:-) How perfect is that? We can't wait till 5.10.14!
It was one of those days in Florida where you hope the sky doesn't open up and pour! Thankfully the rain stayed in the distance and gave us a deep purple and blue sky! There were groups of random sea gulls and I was joking with Lyndsay and Tim that we needed to find a big bunch and have them run through them. Well, ask and you shall receive:-) On the other side of the pier was a huge group of them and so off they ran! Big puddles and a beautiful sky, it couldn't have been more perfect for Lyndsay and TIm's engagement session. SO much fun!
Outdoor, pretty, and sweet!! Here's some of our favs from Kamila and Chris' engagement session at Lettuce Lake Park!
Megan and Joel wanted a pretty outdoor location similar to their wedding venue, The Lange Farm but also totally different! I happened to come across this amazing B&B on the water, Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast. It's by the water, but also a gorgeous property with a tree swing and the light is just stunning. They owners, Wim and Mieke are some of the nicest people you will meet and they do a lot of weddings there as well. We had so much fun, and built Megan and Joel a gorgeous collection for their home that I can't wait to share:-)
Laura and Kenny were totally up for my randomness, why wouldn't you want to have your picture taken in front of a junky old sailboat?:-) It was beautiful golden sunlight but HOT, thankfully the nice people at Starbucks let us cool off and enjoy a cold drink. Laura's cute flirty pink dress was the perfect color and we even found matching pink flowers for a ring pic. So fun working with you both:-) xoxoxo
Whitney and Stephen both love theater and the arts so we went a little artsy and dramatic with the lighting and effects for their engagement session:-) I hadn't been to picnic island before and there was lots of random stuff there that was perfect! They are getting married this November and are such a joy to work with, I can't wait!!
Jill and Bill are hilarious and so much fun to work with. It was a super hot steamy day in Florida but they were up for anything and it turned out awesome!! We can't wait until November for their wedding!!
Here's little sneak peek of our session in South Tampa with Alison and Matthew! Sweet, fun, and laid back..... They'll be tying the knot in October this year in Dunedin we can't wait!
Marcella thought she was coming to Florida for a nice Memorial Day weekend getaway. Adam called me about a month before their trip and told me how he wanted to propose to the love of his life and have it photographed without her knowing. I remember him asking me if I thought that was a good idea, um YES! So, we planned it all out and I was so nervous because I didn't want her to see me but I wanted to make sure I captured those sweet moments and emotions. She said yes, and didn't see me until after she had:-) It was such a joy to be a part of, I remember the surprise when I got engaged and I love seeing people so happy! Adam had planned to have extra outfits for them so we could do their actual engagement session right after. And this is the epitome of why I am so blessed. Congrats you guys!!
You know, the guys always really end up enjoying their engagement sessions sometimes even more than the girls:-) We had such a beautiful evening on Davis Island for Anny and Mike's e-session. My favorite one is of them sitting on the edge of the water, shoes off just enjoying the beautiful setting. Loved working with you both can't wait for 4.28.11!!
Gulfport was the perfect location for Jeannie and Randy's e-session! I happened to hear about this magical place that I hadn't shot at before from another one of our couples and it totally was jackpot! Randy and Jeannie have really fun and sweet personalities and were up for anything. They are actually getting married in Puerto Rico this weekend in a small intimate ceremony. Congrats you too I hope you have an amazing wedding weekend!
And laughter and happiness ensued......that's pretty much how our entire time was with Nicole and Jerid:-) They are a joy to be around and you can help but smile when you see their interaction and love for each other. 10.1.11 they're getting hitched!
We had a lot of fun with this one, seriously not being serious, especially Troy:-) Downtown and urban is definitely their style and will be a great contrast to their wedding which will be at a private estate on Keystone Lake this October. Can't wait!!
