Kristen + Joe Step Into The Limelight | Piedmont Park + Farr Family Farm | Atlanta, GA

Kristen and Joe originally met at work,. Their office staff would go out after work and Kristen was able to see Joe's true personality. She claims he could not keep her away, plus he liked her a little bit too. ;) They quickly discovered they have similar interests. It's one of those unique chapters in life that just doesn't have a title, the story just wrote itself and they were together.

Kristen and Joe went on a cruise around Valentines day of 2019 and on 02.10.19. Joe said he wanted to go see the front of the ship. It was nighttime therefore there were not a lot of people around and he said "you know I love you right" then got down on one knee and proposed to Kristen. So sweet! 

Kristen says, “I love how Joe is such a dork he can always find a way to make me laugh, and when he laughs he has this cute little giggle. He is also so smart it still amazes me to this day. He loves his family so much (even the crazies) and has grown to be part of mine. He's also an Asian that likes country music, what could i not love about that?”

Joe says, “I love Kristen for not only her intelligence and beauty, but her character and her accepting of me for who I am...I believe she phrased it "a dork". I love how she is always willing to take on new adventures with me. She loves her family (yes like mine, even the crazies) as I love mine. Plus who can resist a country girl!”

We had such a pleasure getting to know not only Kristen and Joe, but also Joe’s family for their engagement portrait session. The happy couple currently live and work in Atlanta. So it only made since that we began the session in Piedmont Park - in the heart of downtown Atlanta. We were blessed to have such a clear day with no rain in the middle of so many summer thunder storms! We then made the drive north to Rydal, GA. I was blown away to experience the juxtaposition of the peace of being in midst of God’s natural creation on the Farr family farm with the liveliness and hustle & bustle of downtown!

We are so excited to for Kristen and Joe and look forward to capturing more of their love story at their wedding next spring at the famous “Pink Palace”, the Don CeSar on St Pete Beach.

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!

Naseem + Michael Step Into The Limelight | Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park | Tampa, FL

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!!!

Rachel + Benny Step Into The Limelight | Fort De Soto Park | St Petersburg, FL

Rachel + Benny met through mutual friends while living in Connecticut. They hit it off, yet Benny would always joke about the ’10 year plan.’ BUT after only 5 years…he knew that he needed Rachel to be his forever. Benny waited for their Connecticut trip to pop the question to Rachel and on Christmas day while they were surrounded by their friends and family, Benny asked Rachel to marry him. 

Congratulations on your engagement Rachel + Benny, I can’t wait for your New England infused winter wedding next year at the Opal Sands Resort!
