Amber & Sean Engagement – Ft. Desoto Engagement Photography

Amber and Sean, Sean and Amber… Too much awesomeness to be had with these two… Sean is my sweet, sweet baby cousin… I remember the day I held him in my arms, the countless Saturday mornings where he chased his brothers around their house, naked of course, and then all the countless silly moments of family schnanigans that always had me in giggles.. This boy is trouble and while one would think his soon to be better half would balance out the trouble factor… she is quite the silly one herself:)We had such a great evening photographing their Engagement Party pics at Ft. Desoto… Here are a few to paroose!:)

OH! and I almost forgot to mention they are both in the field of beautification (lol) Amber & Sean both recently graduated from Focus 4 Beauty Career Center in their Cosmetology and Barber Programs.:)

Schaefer Family Session- Downtown St. Petersburg, FL Family Photographer

Nothing is more humbling than getting the opportunity to photograph a fellow photographer’s family, so the honor was huge when I met the super RAD Schaefer fam for pics:) Before they arrived I accidentally ran across this super gnarly field of red chairs and knowing they would be Rocking primary colors… It worked perfectly!!

I am a particular fan of the bottom series of sweet bloopers with the Thea-Shoe-Monster … haha!:)Enjoy!

Ashley & Tim’s Downtown Tampa Engagement

Fun, laid back, easy going, silly, goofy, sweet and kind are a few of the basic characteristics I look for when booking wedding clients…. It is always such a confirming feeling when the stars align and fate hands me couples that exemplify my ideal clientele…. Ashley and Tim pretty much sum up all those traits and then some and however this was taken a trillion years ago …. I am so excited to share just a little taste of their super sweet and silly sunrise engagement in the quiet downtown Tampa morning hours. Hope ya dig it too.:)

Sabrina & Ryan’s Wedding @ The Lange Farm, Dade City, FL

Sabrina and I first met at a Bridal Expo over a year ago and she was so excited she found us, because her Wedding Day vision lined up specifically with our Bridal Expo Booth’s Shabby Chic’y goodness… She had big plans and lots of fun little details to include, but never in a million years did I expect their BIG DAY to turn out so indescribably jaw dropping as it did… She had every little, single detail planned out to the ‘T’ and everything came together so smoothly and with such joyful expectancy for the party to come….Ryan and Sabrina made my day with all their sweet words of encouragement and excitement and I think it shows quite LOUDLY what a treat it was to be present for their journey into their new life.

ALSO- the vendor team they selected couldn’t have been a better group of folks either and I was so honored to work beside such amazing people (refer to the Vendor Shout Out’s at the bottom for more details)….

Casandra and John’s Wedding @ St. Paul’s Catholic Church and St. Pete Yacht Club, St. Petersburg, FL

Casandra is the poster child for rocking ‘Super Bridal Powers!’ A large majority of her final wedding planning months were spent in TX, were she was working remotely and unable to be on the home front as she whipped up her magical Big Day… but it didn’t stop her one bit. She is one of the most organized, on point brides I’ve ever worked with and it was a serious pleasure to be apart of their wedding day.

We started getting ready at the Vinoy in the super snazzy Presidential Suite and then once everyone was all ‘dolled up’ we headed to St. Paul’s for the ceremony to begin. I loved having a front row seat to the action and all of the wonderful little expressions and super secret-undercover silliness passed between Casandra and John in between each piece of the ceremony, it was a hoot. Once they said their ‘I do’s,’ kissed and raced down the aisle , we headed over to their reception a few minutes away at St. Pete Yacht Club (which was one of Casandra’s favorite hobbies.) This was by far- One of my all time favorite receptions, loaded with lots of sweet little children to keep me entertained, lots of love. laughs, and absolute linenlalapolozza at the end of the night…. Their were table clothes, seat covers, napkins, all over that dance floor used in a variety of ways that kept us buckled over in laughter… THE BEST TIME WAS HAD… especially so when… The groom decided to organize a human pyramid of his friends, which don’t get me wrong, but I didn’t think it was going to work with that many guys- but BOY was I wrong! I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day, funner group and pleasant memories.. Thank you guys!
