Downtown Tampa Engagement Photography :: Lavinia + Keary

I had such a lovely time photographing Lavinia & Keary for their engagement session at the University of Tampa in downtown Tampa. We started at 7am and the light was just beautiful! They make such a great couple and simply cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this year! Below are a few of my favorite images and a Q&A:      How did the two of you meet? We met while working for the same company. I kept turning him down so he finally agreed to just be friends and we were for about 3 years until he left the company. He then contacted me about a year later and I finally agreed to go out on a date with him. How long have you two been together? We've been together now as a couple for about a year and a half. How did he propose? The proposal happened 1 month after we started dating. It was low key and on the day before Valentine's day. He'd cooked my favorite dinner and while we were watching tv, he professed his feelings and popped the question. Turns out,  he'[...]

Downtown Tampa Wedding Photography :: Nick & Shannon :: Lange Farm

Tampa Wedding Photography Recently we had the pleasure of documenting Shannon & Nick’s intimate wedding ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Downtown Tampa. Right after the ceremony we walked over to the Le Meridien to do a few portraits and for the bridal party to freshen up before heading to Lange Farm for the reception. They were such an easy going couple and could not take a bad photo of the two of them! Nick and his groomsmen did lip sync to “Keep on Loving You” by REO Speed Wagon to his beautiful bride --- it was epic! Big shout out to Sasha of Oh So Classy Events for making the day run smoothly. Below are just a small handful of my favorite photos from their wedding.    Tater tots wrapped in bacon...YES PLEASE!

Powel Crosley Estate :: Sarasota Wedding Photography I am very excited to share Sara & Glenn’s beautiful intimate wedding that was held at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Florida!

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.

Tampa Engagement Photography :: Brandi & Imad

Brandi and Imad are having a wedding this coming April at the beautiful NOVA 535 in St Petersburg, FL. In honor of this, I thought I would share some of the images from their lovely engagement photography session. Below are just a small handful of my favorite images and a Q&A. Enjoy! :) How did the two of you meet? We met on a cruise from Tampa traveling to Mexico. I still lived in Gainesville and Imad lived in Tampa. Both of us decided at the last minute to go on the cruise with our friends so we almost did not meet. How long have you two been together? It will be 8 years in March. How did he propose?  He proposed where it all began.  We took a short weekend cruise with friends. On the last evening we were taking pictures on the ship in an area recreated to look like Cental Park and he dropped to one knee and asked me to be his wife. Of course I accepted :)   Describe the wedding day (colors, theme, location, etc)- Our wedding is taking place at Nova 535.  We will be [...]
