Formal Engagement Session in Tampa
Ybor City Pictures and Styled Wooded Engagement Dream Session
This was a dream session. I am not just saying that. I mean it, I feel it, I breath it. A formal engagement session in Tampa was the best of two worlds. Both urban and rustic. Warning, this blog post is going to be a photo heavy post! The couple is about the sweetest, smartest, and clearly you can see prettiest ever. Their love for each other, their kindness and patience for each other just came naturally.
They had a vision and through our planning the engagement photo session. Her sister and brother-in-laws helped, they even managed to style the “wooded” session of the shoot themselves. It was great it was to see her sister and brother-in-law at the shoot. Not only because they had just as magical of an engagement session (see that here), and wedding (here), but because they were so helpful. They sprayed oils all over so we were not eaten alive by mosquitoes. From helping unpack the vintage couch, setting up the fruit and sweets, each of which has a special personal meaning to this couple. No detail was overlooked.
We started in Ybor, special to the groom and his family’s heritage. Can you believe the fantastic weather, and light we had? I loved the fun print of the gown, and the tux just stepped up the look of Ybor a bit. I loved pushing outside my comfort of shooting at sunset in a green setting. Enjoy the urban engagement photos setting first.
Then, we set back to the “country” for a more magical, enchanted picnic session. I loved the change of dress, and the gold just worked perfectly against the lush greenery, and the gorgeous sunlight we were blessed with that night. She rented the gold dress from Rent The Runway (www.renttherunway.com) and I highly recommend using that service if you are interested in your own formal engagement session Tampa. Even a formal look for maternity photos would be stunning! I mean, for real, just sit back and enjoy these romatic photos bathed in light and love! I can’t wait to capture this couple’s February nuptials!!
