We’re so lucky here in Florida to have so much outdoor beauty. When we were planning location with Alex and Lauren, they hadn’t been to Philippe Park before but fell in love with the tree canopy when I showed them some of the other sessions we’ve done there. The 2 photos are the top are my personal favorites because it honestly wouldn’t matter what the location it’s all about the authentic moments and who they are as a couple. Lauren had found some super cute signs from Hobby Lobby she might use for the wedding and added an extra special little detail to their session. I can’t wait until we get to photograph their wedding 4.13.19!!!
We always ask couples what they are most excited about getting married and I love that Holly said "Everything"! Holly is a Floridian, from Dunedin, and Rob is from Long Island. They choose the beautiful Philippe Park for their engagement session because they never tire of the beautiful views of Tampa Bay, those amazing huge mossy trees, and of course the Florida Sunshine. We are so excited and honored to photography their wedding 12.1.18 at Carlouel Yacht Club!!

It was one of our few chilly days in Florida for Alexis & Jason's engagement session which means perfect for cute boots and jackets! Their fur babies, Louie and Lacy we all dressed up for their session too:-) We can't wait until their wedding 1.22.17!!
Siera and Eric and both FSU fans, and Eric was able to propose to her inside the stadium in Tallahassee! They were going to meet her family for dinner when they stopped at the stadium (which was under construction) and one of the gates was open! Eric had the ring with him and was planning to propose that day, but he couldn't resist this opportunity of having the stadium all to themselves! What an awesome story they will have to tell for years to come. It was actually a chilly day (by Florida standards:-) for their engagement session. The breeze, and beautiful light, along with this gorgeous couple could not have been more perfect! Looking forward to their big day 11.14.15!
It was SO windy for Stephanie & Rob's engagement session but not under the big archway of trees! They pulled up in Rob's super cool red Corvette which of course, had to be in some of the photos:-) Stephanie and Rob were both in cowboy boots, breaking them in for their wedding at Wishing Well Barn in February!
Erin is a nurse, and Adam is a rescue swimmer in the Navy. They are from Palm Harbor but their jobs, and Adam's deployment has taken them to all different places. Erin is moving out west so they will finally end their long distance relationship and be in the same place! They love the old Florida feel with the big mossy tree canopy so we did their engagement session at Philippe Park. I love sharing sweet engagement stories, here's theirs from Erin:
"There was no doubt that Adam and I were meant for each other, but with all of the craziness of me starting my first job in Tallahassee and Adam due to be deployed, I didn't think a proposal was going to happen for a LONG time. Of course, all of our friends and family who had seen us together for 7 years were asking us "isn't it time yet?" and I always told them "once our lives settle down a little bit, then it will happen, not for a LONG time" So, when one night while Adam was visiting me, he got down on one knee in my closet (its a long story), I was in COMPLETE shock. He told me he didn't want to go any longer without making it official and for the ring to remind me that this distance would end soon enough."
