I can't wait to photograph Kelsey and Brandon's wedding! What a sweet and endearing couple! I first met them at their engagement session at one of my favorite local spots -- Philippe Park, in Safety Harbor, Florida. This park is a quiet area located on the shores of Upper Tampa Bay. There is a dramatic stone staircase that leads down to a pathway that winds along the water's edge, offering stunning views.
There was a chance of rain that day, but the weather couldn't have been more perfect. The sun was shining through the trees (that are laden with Spanish moss - swoon!) and temps were in the low 70's. The perfect setting for two youngsters in love to celebrate this special engaged season of their lives.
Kelsey and Brandon met through a mutual friend who obviously had an eye and a heart for match-making. From the moment they met, sparks flew! As they say, the rest is history...
My first impression of Brandon was that he has an easy way about him -- like he's never met a stranger. He is quick with a smile and a laugh. Kelsey is friendly, beautiful, and has a sharp sense of humor. They made each other laugh. A lot. All Brandon had to do was look at his lovely fiance, and she was in stitches. I witnessed their loving looks, inside jokes, and their excitement for the life they are about to embark on together. #couplegoals!
Here are a few of my favorite images from the session. Thank you, Brandon and Kelsey, for allowing me to be part of this special time in your lives!
