Kelly & Tiffany | Downtown Tampa Proposal

April 25th, 2016

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again….I freaking love proposals!!  I love being all sneaky and paparazzi like and love the reaction on the others face when the question gets popped. Saturday night was no exception. Kelly emailed me about 2 weeks ago asking me if I was available for her proposal to Tiffany. […]

 

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again….I freaking love proposals!!  I love being all sneaky and paparazzi like and love the reaction on the others face when the question gets popped.

Saturday night was no exception.

Kelly emailed me about 2 weeks ago asking me if I was available for her proposal to Tiffany.  Well she had me at proposal.  She had it all planned out that she was going to do it when they headed to Tampa for the Pride & Passion event at the Tampa Museum.  Ring was bought, plans were made and it was time to do it.

Kelly and I met down there a few days before to plan out how it was going to be done.  We had it all planned out where, when and how it was going to happen.  Then came Saturday night.  They got there a little bit earlier then we had originally anticipated but it worked out perfect because we didn’t lose the light like we would of originally.  The bench I was supposed to me sitting at was occupied to say the least, so we had to divert a little further down the Riverwalk.  I was standing so that Kelly could see me and Tiffany’s back was towards me.  Thank heavens being on the Riverwalk with a camera isn’t an abnormal thing and really it looked like I was waiting on clients so I wasn’t out of place.

Kelly got Tiffany situated so that her back remained towards me.  Once I saw that Kelly was really starting to tell Tiffany everything she wanted to, I started moving around so that I could get the look on Tiffany’s face when Kelly went down on her knee.  It was a good 10 minutes before Tiffany even noticed I was there.  Maybe she was a little preoccupied, I don’t know 😉

Everything went off perfectly and they headed into the Pride & Passion event and not only celebrated that, but celebrated their engagement!  Congrats you two <3  Thanks for letting me be your personal paparazzi!!

Kelly was taking a selfie to see if she could tell where I was.  Smart thinking 😉

I don’t think it was sinking in as to what Kelly was doing.  Tiffany was still a little shocked.

Flashback to exactly one year ago today, Bar Louie at Countryside Mall.  Me, Sarah, her mom and a bunch of mojitos.  2 hours later, before I could even get home from the consult, I had an email from Sarah that they wanted to book.  From that day on, I knew their wedding day was going to be a blast.  I mean we went on the boat and to the island for their engagement session and it included their Goldendoodle, Dexter so I was in love 😉

Isla Del Sol is seriously one of the most perfect venues for a beach wedding.  Who doesn’t like a private beach so you aren’t getting those “amazing” photo bombers in the background?  The entire staff at Isla Del Sol are there to make the day perfect and that they did!  I got a text from Sarah the week before the wedding, freaking out a bit because they were calling for 80% chance of rain.  Come Saturday, there was a rain cloud in the sky and the day went off without a hitch!

Huge thank you to all the vendors that made Sarah & Cameron’s day perfect!
