Saint Petersburg FL Engagement Photography :: Jenna + Kevin

Recently we had the pleasure of photographing Jenna + Kevin for their engagement session in beautiful Downtown Saint Petersburg, FL. We started out about a half hour before sunset and finished the evening with a few night shots to give them a different feel for their engagement photos. I simply cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year with Special Moments Event Planning! Below are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session. Enjoy! :)

Clearwater Photographer :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Stephen Fox

I am very excited to share another photo shoot I did for my Beards of Tampa Bay project. Stephen was a lot of fun to work with and certainly had an epic beard. Name Stephen Fox Where are you from? Rio Grande, NJ Occupation: System Administrator How long have you been growing your beard? 13 months! I remember the exact date, March 15th, 2015, because my buddy Rick got married that day. What started you on this path? I'd been growing my beard since Movember 2014 but became frustrated with it so I decided the wedding was a good time to make a change. After I trimmed back to stubble, it seemed my beard had a will to live again and I embraced it. I think I had to trim it back to really appreciate and enjoy growing a substantial beard. I've sort of stumbled into something I'm really good at: growing facial hair. What is your end goal for your beard? I hope to be a World Beard Champion. As far as beard goals, I want to grow my beard to the floor and down the hall. [...]

Tampa Engagement Photography :: Greylyn + Mike

Tampa Engagement Photography Not gonna lie... Greylyn + Mike killed it the other day during their downtown Tampa Engagement Photography session and can't wait for their Love & Rock n Roll themed wedding later this year at NOVA 535.

Match.com – boring but true J How long have you two been together? 3 years How did he propose? After the O.A.R. concert at Curtis Hixon Park,  he proposed at home with a ‘will you marry me’ note and ring inside of a fortune cookie – along with a stuffed unicorn and sketch of the crazy/hot matrix. Describe the wedding day (colors, theme, location, etc) Our wedding is November 25th, aka Black Friday, at Nova 535 in downtown St Pete.  With the exposed brick, bamboo patio, and slick décor, it’s perfect for our theme - ‘Love Rocks’.  Our colors are red, black and si[...]

Siesta Key Wedding Photography :: Susan + Jeff

Siesta Key Wedding Photography Susan has been a long time client of mine and this past Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing her beautiful intimate wedding down in Siesta Key, FL with close friends and family. It was truly a beautiful Spring evening with a nice cool breeze and a beautiful sunset to match. Congratulations Susan and Jeff!  After sending Susan & Jeff their wedding photos I received this email: "These are SO SO SO SO amazing!  Jeff and I had dinner last night after being away at our offices all day and sat on the couch and went thru all of the images.  Both were laughing and crying.  You are such an amazing and talented individual.  You are so much more than a photographer.  Thank you so much for capturing so many moments that happened so fast.  You managed to perfectly document our special day.  And ALL that went along with the moments leading up to the I do's!" Thank you Susan & Jeff for your kind words and for letting me be apart of your special day! [...]

Saint Petersburg Maternity Photography :: Mary + Don

Saint Petersburg Maternity Photography I had the honor of photographing Mary & Don's wedding last year and recently I had the pleasure of doing maternity portraits for them in celebration of their first born child. We could not have asked for a better location and a day for their maternity portraits. We went from an 80% chance of rain the night before to a 20% chance over night... Gotta love Florida! I absolutely loved Mary's custom flower crown made by Iza's Flowers and her maternity dress. Below are just a small handful of my favorite images from their pregnancy photography session.  

Saint Petersburg Photographer :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Corey Plummer

I am always challenging myself with different personal projects and one project that I have been working on is Beards of Tampa Bay.  Thank you Corey for being apart of this project. Below are a few of my favorites from this shoot along with links to more awesome beards... Enjoy! Brian Zak Jeffrey Adam Jeremy David Josh Ian If you or someone you know has an EPIC beard and would love to be apart of this project, please do not hesitate to reach out. Name Corey Plummer Where are you from? Winchester, Virginia Occupation Co-Founder of The Hip Lion, Coffee Co.  How long have you been growing your beard?  This beard has been since July 7th, 2015 What started you on this path? Well many reasons. One used to be an insecure thing, tbh. I didn't like the way I looked. There is also much of Virginia that is still apart of me. So being from near the Mountains, it only made sense. But now it's become something that I identify with. Kind of li[...]

Tampa Professional Photographer :: Sacred Heart Easter Vigil

Tampa Professional Photography   My wife and I were married at Sacred Heart in Tampa and have been parishioners for the past three years. I have doing a lot of photography work for them lately and was thrilled when they asked me to photograph Easter Vigil last Saturday night. It certainly was a beautiful mass light by candlelight. The Mass consists of the Service of Light and the welcoming of new brothers and sisters into full communion with the Catholic Church.  Below are a few of my favorite photographs from the Easter Vigil.
