Amanda and Sean are one of those couples that you truly just enjoy to be around - the ease in which they are 100% themselves around each other is contagious, and it's really hard not to have fun. When I pitched the idea of a not-so-traditional engagement session involving yummy beer and food trucks, I was thrilled that they jumped on the opportunity to spend the evening sticking the engagement ring in all of our favorite treats! A former resident of the Milk District, Taste Tuesdays have a special place in my heart, and I'm so thrilled that these two were willing to get ridiculous in public with me to really showcase how fun sessions can be.Read More
Monica and Lawrence are yet another unique SO couple - they are from the same town in California and grew up together their whole lives, and yet somehow they made it all the way to college before love brought them together. They've been together now 8 years, first living in different cities in California, and then spending the last 3.5 together here in the Tampa area and they are about to rejoin their families on the West Coast in less than a month! As this engagement session was also a farewell to Florida as they take off on a new adventure together, it was important to me as their photographer to not only capture the love between this couple, but the essence of St. Pete right alongside it, so that they may cherish this time together here on the East coast, always.Read More
When I first met Mandy (way back in my freshman at College days...), I couldn't help but think immediately that she was one of the sweetest people I had ever met! Fast forward a decade and this lovely lady is getting hitched! She and Jimmy met up with me at Dubois Park in Jupiter, Florida, for a gorgeous sunset engagement session that was filled with good, old fashioned, fun! I can't wait for their wedding in August!Read More
I loved Kristina from the moment I met her - it was the way that she swindled a restaurant into serving her a mimosa when they supposedly didn't serve alcohol. Or, maybe it was the way that she was sweet to everyone and basically everything she said was hilarious. Maybe I can't pinpoint the exact reason I loved Kristina from the beginning, but I distinctly remember telling my boyfriend later "Chris is an idiot. Why hasn't he proposed to her, yet? She's AWESOME."
Well, Chris wised up and dropped down on one knee at the tail end of last year! When she mentioned taking the engagement photos at the state fair, I thought to myself "how so very perfect for them!" because in my head, this is a couple who is always laughing and having fun - and that, is exactly how I wanted to capture their engagement: as a joyous occasion. We spent the afternoon darting in and out of rides, indulging on ice cream and corn, and playing like big 'ol children. The result are these FABULOUS lifestyle engagement photos at the Florida State Fair.Read More
It had been months since I first met Alomy and we had scheduled this engagement session - I was so excited to get this long haired beauty in front of my camera! It was my first time meeting her fiance, and I am pretty sure we all became fast friends. It could not have been a more beautiful sunset in one of my all time favorite locations - Lake Louisa State Park. What I love most about this park is that I can visit it 5 times in one month and have completely different sessions every time! It's always changing! I can't wait for their wedding later on this year!Read More
When Caitlin first contacted me and expressed her love of Star Wars and told me that she was going to incorporate it into her wedding I knew I HAD to be their photographer - luckily we bonded instantaneously and she felt the same way! Her fiance Leo flew in from Austin (where she will be joining him after the wedding) for their engagement shoot, which we did in St. Augustine, Florida. They brought along custom light sabers. Naturally, we had a saber fight (or two).Read More
