Liz & EG

This is one of my favorite engagement sessions ever:-)  No one even on Pinterest has done it before.  When I met Liz, she told me that EG is a UPS man and we started scheming about doing some of their engagement photos with him in uniform and a UPS truck.  EG was totally down, and we started their session at UPS and got creative with video light and off camera flash since it was evening time. The also love to hang out in Ybor so quick change and some of the pretty night scene there as well.  I can't wait for the wedding 4.8.17, there might even be some more hints of #whatcanbrowndoforyou.  xoxoxo

Denise & Bryan

Bryan proposed to Denise while decorating their Christmas tree.  They have tons of ornaments and after putting the final one on the tree,  Bryan said "you forgot one".  She thought to herself how in the world?!  Bryan got out the final "ornament" which was her engagement right on string.  SO sweet!!! We did their engagement session in Ybor city. I love wandering the the streets there, the beautiful light and fun places to shoot are different every time.   Carmine's was gracious enough to allow us to shoot at their bar inside:-) 

Lauren & Zach

Lauren and Zach were totally up for something different and fun for their engagement session and I think we nailed it.  I had been dying to do a session in Coppertail Brewing Company because the decor and artwork is just so awesome!  Plus who doesn't want to drink craft beer during their engagement session?:-)  Lauren and Zach I had so much fun with you guys and can't wait until your wedding!! Thank you Jessica, from Coppertail for the awesome location!!  xoxo

Haley & Jordan

Haley & Jordan are from Texas and they met summer of 2008 while working at a camp for kids. Haley joined Jordan at Texas A&M where he got his masters in Sports Management and she got her bachelors of science.  Their relationship has spanned the miles over the past 3 years. Jordan moved to Tampa to work for the Bucs, and after finishing her boards for physical therapy, Haley is moving here this month and they are getting married 7.25.15!  They are just the sweetest, fun loving couple, up for anything. I thought Ybor would be a great welcome to Tampa engagement session:-) 

Jennifer & Faizal

Ybor is definitely Jennifer and Fazial's stomping ground. They even knew quite a few people just walking around.  Ella and Gia their Yorkie and Chihuahua joined us as well.   They have been together for 6.5 years and met at the Ybor Saturday Market.  They were trying to re-create their first date and Faizal got up on the stage like he was going to sing Karaoke and called Jennifer up and proposed instead!

Julie & Matt

Julie, Matt & I were wandering around Ybor for their engagement session and you never know what you will find or who you will meet:-)  There is a new mural on 7th and when you get in front of it there is actually a door that happened to be open.  Of course we had to see what was inside.  When you walk in, it's an open brick space with no roof and picture frames on the walls.  The owner is actually Jill Scott who owns Hoffman Porges Gallery right next door and she was so nice to let us be there, such a unique space.  We were a little disappointed to find that the trolley's are now wrapped in Budweiser!!!!!!  The other day I was down there again though and saw not all of them are thank God!  We are so excited for Julie and Matt's wedding next March!

Ashley + David

So pretty!  Ashley and David are both from Tampa, and it doesn't get any more home town then the brick streets and Don Vicente in Ybor.  The light as the sun was going down was aboslutely gorgeous.  We are always finding something new down there. I love Ashley's bold pink shirt and aqua (or mint green it could go either way:-) shoes.  We are so looking forward to their wedding in June! xoxox

David + Melissa

David and Melissa are getting married over New Year's in St. Lucia, I wish I was going:-)  I'll be freezing in Colorado Springs for a wedding though so it's all good!  We didn't notice until after the session, but the graffiti behind us said "Life free or die trying" which I think really was the perfect touch!  Usually I end up having to edit out inappropriate language in graffiti so that was a nice surprise.  Such a sweet and genuine people, it was so much fun working with them!
