Stephanie and James are an in one word- awesome. Originally from St. Petersburg (they already get cool points for that because I love St. Pete), they are down to earth, easy to joke around with, and love all of the same things I do- including talking about our dogs, Christmas trees, and a shared love of Disney World. Steph, a student and all around bad-ass of a woman, is also a part time model which explains why she absolutely NAILED this engagement session. James, a witty and down to earth guy was such a true gentleman to his woman every minute of this session and really proved that true love (and chivalry) is out there! James also happens to be a softball player, and designed the awesome jerseys shown below for his team. Steph being the rockstar fiancé that she is, attends every game and cheers her man on! What better a place than for him to pop the question, than at one of his games with all of their friends and family there to cheer them on? Originally he proposed with a Ring Pop, (which Steph has saved in a plastic bag and refuses to throw away) and when she said yes he knew that any girl who would say yes to a Ring Pop was the right girl for him! We started our session in St. Petersburg at the popular venue, Station House, and continued to walk to some of our favorite spots as they told me more about their wedding, their love story, and most importantly- their dog! I’m so excited to photograph their wedding next August and I know the day is going to be just as fun and stress free as these two are!
