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!

Kristen + Eric Step Into The Limelight | Museum of Fine Arts | St. Petersburg, FL

Kristen + Eric met on a snowy night in Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 2012 and have been on many adventures together ever since. Whether it is snowboarding, cliff jumping, kayaking, hiking, they both have SO much fun together! In true adventurous fashion, Eric proposed to Kristen in a living treehouse in Burlington, Vermont! 

Recently, Kristen + Eric have started a new chapter of their lives by moving to Florida. When Kristen + Eric were deciding where to have their wedding they decided that they wanted their family to experience Florida’s tropical atmosphere, as well as, having their guests embark on an adventure of their own. It just so happens that the weather this time of year is perfect for vacations….and weddings, so there was no better time to showcase their new hometown! 

On their wedding day, the weather was perfect and with a slight breeze ensuring that their northern guests did not get too hot. The ceremony atmosphere at the Museum of Fine Arts’ garden gave a little bit of ‘old Florida’ charm as well as classic elegance. When the ceremony came to conclusion and Kristen + Eric turned to their guests to be announced as husband and wife, their guests erupted in the most exciting and heartfelt moment I have ever experienced. It was a true celebration of love!

Congratulations on becoming Mr. and Mrs. Eric + Kristen, you are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met ♥️

Maria and Joseph chose to have a unique wedding in the garden of the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St. Pete.  It was such a gorgeous day out and a perfect setting for a wedding.  I loved how they included their giant labradoodle, Riley to be the ring bearer, he even wore a tie for the occasion.  Maria and Joseph were friends for much of their life and were destined to be together forever... they were joined by all of their family and friends, many coming all the way from upstate New York, to be a part of their amazing wedding day.  

I am so honored to have been able to capture these memories for them to look back on. Congratulations Maria and Joseph.
