Recently I had the pleasure of photographing these two love birds in Ybor City for their engagement session and it could not have been a better Florida winter evening! Here is just a small handful of my favorite images. Enjoy!

 

 

How did the two of you meet?

We met through mutual friends & family on facebook. Personally, I was totally not interested but his clever writing and camo uniform had my mind wondering.

How long have you two been together?

Officially together for a year and few months. Cliche-girl thing to say, we first laid eyes back 2012 when our writing first started

How did he propose?

After a 9 month dinner anniversary, we went back to my place to walk our dog. After a simple slow dance from Frank Sinatra.. he ran after my dog, tripped & fell. I, of course, get hysterical when people fall and attempted to help him up a few minutes later. Then… the question that turned me numb.

Describe the wedding day (colors, theme, location, etc)

Our wedding is striving for the “vintage” them. Colors are going to be the light meadows, ivory, champagne, blush, gold, ect. Our reception and also ceremony will be in the Mirror Lake Lyceum.

Any tips that you would give other couples planning their wedding?

Really learn from each other through the experience. As simple as making decisions might be, planning a wedding in a way is a strategic way of growth.

What was it like working with Jonathan during your engagement session?

It was superb. He made us feel comfortable, totally relatable and professional. My first shot in choosing my photographer and I’m beyond pleased. I can not wait to see our photos for the wedding!
