Ringling Museum Engagement Photography

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Tiffany and Tom for their engagement photography session. We did it at the beautiful Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida and also did a few family pictures with their son Gavin. Below are a few of my favorite pictures along with a Q&A: How did the two of you meet? Tom and I met through mutual friends and after much persistence on Tom's part we began to date and have been going strong since then. How long have you two been together? We have been together for 3 1/2 years  How did he propose? It was a beautiful day in Sarasota and we decided to go out on our boat just the 2 of us. We had done this many times but something about this day seemed magical. We saw more marine wildlife than ever before and the water was like glass.  We decided to stop at one point and all of a sudden a school of dolphins swam up to the boat and started jumping and playing! It was unbelievable!  I was watching the dolphins from the bow of the boat a[...]

Tampa Engagement Photography :: Jake + Joyce

You know that moment when you combine a beautiful couple, epic location, great lighting and nice weather? Well, here is what you get! I had so much fun photographing Jake and Joyce for their engagement session. I simply cannot wait to photograph their beautiful wedding in 2016! Below is just a small handful of my favorite images and a Q&A. How did the two of you meet? Jake and I met while I was on my spring break visiting family and friends in New Jersey. Jake lived in Connecticut at the time but was out one night in NYC with friends. That same night happened to be my best friend's birthday so we both went into the city to go celebrate. We locked eyes on the dance floor but Jake played it cool and didn't approach me right away until he noticed I didn't have a boyfriend. Once he had stole me away from the group we had just met that night, we danced for a bit and I mysteriously left to go wander with my best friend. The next day I called him and we were on the phone [...]
