Christine & Matt @ Bayshore Blvd

This happens to be one of the most fun engagement sessions ever!  When I met with Christine, she happened to tell me that her and Matt have a 1950's vintage tandem bicycle they are restoring together.  It was pretty easy to decide what to do for their engagement session after that!  We may have wreaked a little havoc on Bayshore but it was so much fun:-) They are going to have some bicycle accent details at their wedding and all their favs from this session are going to be designed into a custom sign in book.  We can't wait to photograph their wedding 4.25.18!! 

Haley & John's Save the Dates

We love designing custom artwork for our couples and had to share how Haley and John's save the dates turned out. These are a 5x5 trifold double sided card with a scalloped magnet inside.  When it's closed, it's a 5x5 square and when their guests open it they have a fun little magnet for the fridge.  In the days of everything electronic these create a unique wow factor to get your guests excited about your wedding:-) 

Alecia & Donald

It doesn’t look cold but it actually was quite chilly for our session with Alecia & Donald.  But, perfect for Alecia’s super stylish best and boots.  I have to say, they have very photogenic fur babies, Kaci and CooperJ Their joy and laughter is just plain fun and contagious, we can’t wait until their wedding 9.17.16 at the Florida Aquarium! 

Angell & Jared

Keel & Curley Winery is where Angell & Jared shared their 3rd date so it’s a meaningful place for them, and the perfect place for their engagement session!  The staff there was so nice to allow us to photograph them on their beautiful property! Angell shared their engagement story with us and it’s so sweet, we had to share!

“We both grew up in small towns in central Pennsylvania that were less than an hour apart! Since we visit home for the holidays, Jared thought getting engaged in our home state would make it a memorable event and also allow us to celebrate with family! Timing was critical because Jared needed to speak with my parents before popping the question. Jared knew I was a Penn State grad and had been a tour guide while I was in school.  Jared wasn't too familiar with the campus so he asked me to give him a tour during our Christmas 2014 trip home.  Jared said it would "help him learn more about a place that was special to me". Of course there was another motive!  We arrived at my parents' home for the holidays on 12/22 and on 12/23 Jared asked my parents if he could marry me.  They were very excited to give their blessing.  Later that day, even though it was dreary and cold, I took Jared around the Penn State campus. One of the last stops was the Lion Shrine -- a statue of the Nittany Lion and popular photo spot.  There was a couple there taking photos and we asked them to take one of us too.  After a couple of photos, Jared got down on one knee and proposed.  My first response was, "Does my dad know?!"  Jared put me at ease by saying yes your dad knows, and then he said, "Well, what's your answer?"  I was stunned and smiled ear to ear and said YES! We celebrated with a shared milkshake at the popular Penn State University Creamery.”

Anna & Ryan

Anna & Ryan are getting married at Wishing Well Barn and there are just so many beautiful places for pictures we did their engagement session there as well.  The early morning light is so pretty with the light coming through the spanish moss on the oak trees and and there are rows and rows of blueberry bushes!  Love these 2, so sweet!!  

Maureen & Ralph

When Ralph proposed to Maureen, he surprised her by doing it at the barn in the middle of the arena where her horse Violet stays.  So, it was the perfect place for their engagement session! Ralph's favorite sport is paintball and Maureen's is horseback riding so we did a little combo of both!  There even happened to be a tree with blue paint on it:-)  Their wedding is going to be elegant equestrian themed at the Lange Farm and I can not wait!!!  xoxoxo  

Taylor + Brad

This session we did out on the beautiful property of Bird Island Lake Ranch.  The big trees and filtered sun are so pretty, it's really peaceful but so close to Tampa.  There is even a tree house there:-)  Taylor and Brad climbed trees, well actually, Brad hoisted Taylor up into the trees but we just had a fun time laughing and hanging out.  We designed a gorgeous canvas wall collection from their session that will be hanging in their staircase so you'll see that in the coming weeks as well! xoxo

Kevin + Rowena

When I found out Kevin was a dragon boat racer, (although I wasn't sure exactly what that was:-) we of course had to use that in their engagement session!  It was the windiest day in Tampa so we couldn't go to far out, but still got some realy cool shots of them in the harbor.  I love the look we created with the bridges and city in the background with the sun going down.  So fun working with you Kevin and Rowena, can't wait till June!!! xoxoxo
