Catalina + Shayne Step Into The Limelight | Hillsborough River State Park | Thonotosassa, FL

Catalina & Shayne’s first date was at the Hillsborough River State Park so having their engagement session at this location just made sense. Shayne loves the outdoors and he took took us along an educational hike during their session. Did you know Wild Grapes is a thing? Animals love them! There is also such a thing as Wild Coffee along the trails, it’s a glossy little shrub and if eaten… it will give you a burst of energy unlike our normal Starbucks coffee cup (more like a buzz). Shayne saved us all when he quickly spotted poison ivy! I just loved how Catalina just gracefully smiled throughout it all… She can hang though, don’t get me wrong. spiders and mosquitoes were everywhere! 

Fun fact… Catalina was one of Limelight’s Interns a few years ago and now we get to be a part of the planning process of her own wedding day! It is such an honor and I cannot wait to see it all come together.  They will tie the knot in January at Beso del Sol Resort and we are here for it.

Hannah + Adam Step Into The Limelight | University of Tampa | Tampa, FL

Hannah & Adam’s love story began back in Ohio and they are both taking roots in Tampa as they begin their lives together in sunny Florida. They LOVE their dogs Titus & Nala so it was so important to have them join in their engagement session (they did so well!). 

Hannah & Adam will tie the knot in February of 2020 at Isla del Sol and we could not be more excited.

Happy wedding planning!

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!!!
