David & Tanya Engagement

I just love this couple.  David & Tanya are getting married early 2016 and I was so excited when they asked me to do their engagement session.  We decided to do the session at the University of Tampa…I love this location.  I’ve known them for many years now…their little one Kennedy and my son have been in the same school since they were babies.  I’ve always admired how much David loves Tanya and Kennedy.  He is so supportive of them…what a great guy.  Congrats to this wonderful couple.

Gloria Gets Married

So October 18, 2014 my good friend Gloria got married in Key West, FL.  I knew when she told me that Sean asked her to marry him she would be asking me to be a part of her wedding.  Since I would be in the wedding I knew I wouldn’t be able to photograph the ceremony for her but I knew I could capture some special moments for her before and after the ceremony.  I treasure our friendship and I’m so happy I could be there for her on her special day.  Gloria and Sean I wish you nothing but happiness.  Congrats!

Gloria wanted to incorporate her late mother into the photography and wanted me to think of a way to do that. So I printed little photos of her mother and applied them to her bouquet…I thought it would be wonderful to take her mom with her into this journey with Sean. She loved the idea and I think it came out great!

Gloria Bridal Shower

My dear friend Gloria is getting married to her soulmate in just about a month. I was thrilled when she asked me to be in the wedding…so this past weekend we celebrated her by surrounding her with friends, gifts and of course cake. Gloria was very specific that she loves buttercream frosting with lemon filling…and of course she loves Tiffany…so we decided to incorporate it in the cake and our theme for the shower. I wish nothing but happiness for her and Sean. I’ve never had a sister but I’ve known Gloria for almost 10 years and I knew very early on that GOD sent her my way to be that sister I never had. God thank you for your blessings and bless this wonderful couple! Amen!  I also wanted to say thank you to Tanya for making such beautiful flower arrangements…they turned out so wonderful! Cake and cookies by Alessi Bakery. Lunch at Jackson’s Bistro.
