Victoria + Saleh Step Into The Limelight | Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center | Tampa, FL

Victoria and Saleh got married at theEmbassy Suites in downtown Tampa. Friends and family from all parts of the world came to this special occasion to celebrate love at it’s finest! Family from Central America and Egypt reunited in one of the venue’s ballrooms to watch Victoria walk up the isle with her father to meet the love of her life standing there waiting for his bride with pure happiness in his eyes..

Their reception was held in another ballroom which was beautifully decorated with navy blue napkins, clear-gold-beaded chargers, a white lace and navy blue runner,  white and blue floral arrangements, and golden amber uplighting around the room. Two cakes were displayed, one of which was made into the form of a gold pyramid.  At one point during dinner service, a belly dancer surprised the couple with a couple dances that sparked joy and created an atmosphere of excitement on the dance floor. This day was truly spectacular for the couple since they were surrounded by all their loved ones who lived near and far. Congratulations to Victoria and Saleh!

Amy + Richard | Step Into The Limelight | Armature Works | Tampa, FL

Amy and Richard got Married at the beautifully modern and rustic venue, Armature Works. During their wedding process, they both decided they wanted something just a little different than the high glamour, majestic setting. They wanted something that had a sense of high energy with the right amount of edginess. This venue was just that! This gorgeous couple started their day getting ready with their closest family and friends. Amy wore a beautiful custom gown that had lace details all around and was paired with a very fine and light vail. She walked down the aisle so confidently and with the biggest smile as she saw Richard standing there waiting for her. It was the sweetest moment of all! Love and laughed exuded out of this very short and sweet ceremony. and once the couple said their I-Do’s, they accompanied their friends and family to a reception dinner up on the second floor. White Floral, candles and custom wood names were placed on the tables for their guest’s enjoyment. Each table, was unique and with it’s own little touch of Amy’s detailed eye, perfectly selected to give all of us the wow-factor. It was such an amazing time with the two of them, I wish them the best of the best!

I had the pleasure of meeting both Naseem and Michael on this beautiful Sunday evening. We focused our attention around the Downtown Tampa area where we explored the grounds while getting photos of this lovely couple. We started off at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, made our way to the edge of the river walk and ended up in front of the Le Méridien Tampa. We are more than excited to be with them once again on their wedding day in early May. Naseem and Michael, Congratulations on your engagement!!!

Amy + Richard Step Into The Limelight | Downtown Tampa, FL

What a great session we had with this wonderful and happy family. We started off with all members of the family, including their four-legged loved ones. Love and laughter all throughout their session was contagious and set the tone to a beautiful moment. After shooting in the spot that Richard proposed to Amy, we made our way to a place with a little more of an exciting and relaxed atmosphere. Here, Amy and Richard got some drinks and cheered to a new life together! They will both be saying their I-DO’s mid JULY. Congratulations on your engagement!!!

Lisa + Ryan Step Into The Limelight | Downtown Tampa, FL

We enjoyed a gorgeous evening in downtown Tampa with perfect weather and the most genuine, humble, down-to-earth, sweet and fun couple! Truly a delight working together to create these portraits. 

Lisa is a Tampa native and Ryan hails from Michigan. They have been dating seven years and Ryan proposed on Christmas this past year. Lisa is an attorney and Ryan works out in the oil fields. Although they both have very intense careers that they are dedicated to, they both LOVE vacationing together! They especially enjoy tropical cruises - so it was only fitting to capture the sunset during their session! Congratulations Lisa and Ryan we cannot wait for your wedding this fall!
