St Petersburg Engagement / Family Photography

We had so much fun photographing Alexa, Ruth, Rommel, and Ryan the other day and simply cannot wait to photograph Ruth and Rommel’s wedding later this year! Below are just a handful of our favorite images and a Q&A:

How did the two of you meet? I went to grade school with his youngest sister. He’s always been apart of my life.

How long have you two been together?
September 2015 marked two years.

How did he propose?
After spending a whole day walking around Savannah, Georgia we were relaxing on the patio and Rommel asked me if I wanted to do this for the rest of my life……spend my time with him and his kids. After I said yes, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Any tips that you would give other couples planning their wedding?
Plan and budget and do your research.

Why did you choose Jonathan Fanning as your wedding photographer?
A friend had used Jonathan and we liked what we saw.

What was your reaction when you first saw your engagement photos?
We loved them. It didn’t take long for me to print them out and hang them up and send out as Christmas cards too
