Kristen + Steven Step Into The Limelight | MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS ST. PETERSBURG | ST. PETERSBURG, FL

Steven and Kristen met in October of 2017. Kristen was volunteering at a charity golf tournament at Innisbrook and Steven was playing in the tournament.They spent the evening talking at the after party and the rest is history! Kristen loves how Steven always has the ability to make her laugh and how he is always up for an adventure. Steven loves how Kristen is so comfortable to be around.They love traveling, hiking, trying new restaurants, cooking, skiing, and just spending time together.

Steven proposed during a planned a trip for Kristen’s 40th Birthday at Glacier National Park.They were on their 6th mile, hiking near Iceberg Lake and enjoying the beautiful scenery when Steven asked Kristen to marry him. Kristen was so shocked and happy, and the view made it even more majestic and so special.

Kristen and Steven chose to get married at the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St Petersburg, Florida because they wanted to get married where they fell in love. St Petersburg hosted many of their first dates and it was important to Kristen and Steven to share their love and city with their family and friends.

Congratulations Kristen and Steven!

Laura + Austin Step Into The Limelight | Downtown St. Petersburg, FL

Laura and Austin found out that each other existed July 29th 2017 when they matched on Tinder. Austin sent the first message to Laura. They didn’t meet in person until August 18th 2017 at Doc B’s at International Mall after Laura had previously canceled the first date attempt.

Austin proposed down by Tampa Bay with their brand new puppy Mason (who they had just brought home <24 hours prior). He said he wanted to play with Mason down by the Bay and when they got down there, he found a bench for them to sit on. As they were sitting there, he said that he bought a new collar for Mason. He explained the collar was too big for her now, but that she would grow into and hopefully last forever. But that wasn’t the only thing he wanted to last forever that day! That’s when he got down on one knee and asked Laura to marry him. He also had a “Will you marry me?” message printed on the new collar’s tag. Laura was so distracted with letting the puppy down that she went running to get Mason before he could get the ring on her finger. Two of their friends were there hiding to take pictures.

Laura and Austin complete each other perfectly. They are very similar in their interests/greatest pleasures/beliefs (God, family first, football, exercising, eating, wine, traveling) and also very different. Austin is much more relaxed but also very particular. Laura is a planner and more high strung. Austin prefers cold weather and Laura would take the beach any day. Laura loves the way that Austin always knows the perfect moments to kiss/hug/tell her he loves her. Laura can easily tell when he is extremely passionate about anything and he always gives 100%.

Laura and Austin are just incredibly lovely people and make such a beautiful and sweet couple. What a perfect evening we had capturing their love on a gorgeous evening in downtown St Pete!

Rachel + Joe Step Into the Limelight | Sunken Gardens | Dali Museum | North Shore Park | St. Petersburg, FL

It all started when Joe’s mom and a friend of Rachel’s mom had a brilliant idea! Why not set them up? “Yes! Rachel + Joe would make a great couple” .They were not wrong! {mamas know best}
After two years of dating, Joe decided it was time to propose. They lived in the Florida Keys at the time and Joe had the perfect spot to pop the question. At their favorite reef, how unique is that?
They are in the process of planning their wedding at the historic Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club in October of 2019.
We had the pleasure of getting to know this couple during their engagement session in Downtown St. Pete, as we captured sweet and romantic moments at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, The Dali Museum and North Shore Park.
We are so honored to be a part of this couple’s love story and we cannot wait until we get to capture their big day! We have feeling it will be pretty amazing.
Remember folks, enjoy the process and invest in what will last forever!
