Jennifer & Rob | Engaged | Dunedin Engagement Session

November 20th, 2014

One of the things that I have my couples do, is fill out an engagement questionnaire.  I want to know all about the two of you, the proposal and all the juicy details.  When reading Jennifer & Rob’s…well my heart melted, not gonna lie!  I have to share this!! I arranged a weekend getaway in […]

 

One of the things that I have my couples do, is fill out an engagement questionnaire.  I want to know all about the two of you, the proposal and all the juicy details.  When reading Jennifer & Rob’s…well my heart melted, not gonna lie!  I have to share this!!

I arranged a weekend getaway in Orlando over 4th of July weekend. Weekend getaways in Orlando are a pretty common occurrence for us, we probably go there 3-4 times a year just to relax and getaway without going too far. So Jen never suspected this trip to be any different, especially with the stress of recently purchasing the gym. However, for the weeks prior to this trip I had been designing her engagement ring based on the years of comments she has made to me about our friends engagement rings. We arrived in Orlando on Friday July 4th, and played around at the hotel, hit the gym and the pool and then went back to the room to get ready for dinner. I anxiously waited for Jen to finish getting ready then went to the hotel room safe to get my wallet (which I commonly keep in there), but this time I also grabbed the ring box which she was unaware of. I asked her in a kind of a joking matter “Is that what you’re wearing to dinner?” She looked at me and said “yeah, why?” Then I took the ring box out from behind my back, opened it up and asked her if she wanted to wear this too. Hers eyes lit up and she asked if I was serious, to which I responded “Jennifer will you marry me and spend the rest of your life with me?” She said yes, and I slid the ring onto her trembling finger. We then went to a nice dinner at Flemings and celebrated!

I mean come on?!

So on to their engagement session.  Since they are a hometown type of couple, we decided on doing a Dunedin engagement session but little did I know that the craft fair was going on in downtown Dunedin.  If you’ve ever been to a Dunedin Craft Fair, Main Street shuts down!  As in no cars, tons of people and there aren’t many places we can tuck and hide.  Oh but we did it.

We actually started at Dunedin House of Beer, grabbed a drink, relaxed for a few minutes and then headed down into Dunedin.  There were still a ton of people down there for being late on a Sunday afternoon but we managed to dodge around them.  They brought Logan (their 4 legged child) which always makes me giddy when couples want to bring their dogs so he had to make his pictorial debut.

Can’t wait for their Palm Harbor White Chapel wedding in May!  We’ve already started talking about what formals we’re going to get!

Katelyn & Peter | Barrington Hills Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer

November 19th, 2014

Some things are just meant to be.  When Katelyn booked with me last November, she had booked a different venue.  Without saying where, let’s just say that things didn’t quite work out with that venue (not Katelyn’s fault) and she was left to find another venue.  She headed out to Barrington Hills and Alicia just […]

 

Some things are just meant to be.  When Katelyn booked with me last November, she had booked a different venue.  Without saying where, let’s just say that things didn’t quite work out with that venue (not Katelyn’s fault) and she was left to find another venue.  She headed out to Barrington Hills and Alicia just so happen to have a cancelation for her wedding day and BAM, we were having a Barrington Hills wedding!

I’m not going to lie and I’m going to get it out there right now.  A Barrington Hills wedding has been on my “to shoot” bucket list for the longest time so Katelyn fulfilled this for me (be sure to like the Facebook page because I’m constantly putting up my bucket list so your venue could be on there)  Okay, enough about me, back to Katelyn and Peter.

All I really need to say is perfect weather, perfect venue which made for a perfect day!

HUGE thanks to all the vendors involved that made Katelyn & Peter’s wedding go off without a hitch!

Since it’s a long walk from the bridal suite at Barrington Hills, I loved that Peter stayed facing the tree and then turned around when Katelyn was walking down the aisle.  Almost like a first look in front of everyone!

Katelyn & Peter wrote their own vows and while they both kept it very loving, this was at the point where Peter said something like “I love you like a fat kid loves cake”
