It is such an incredible privilege to capture special memories for people I call my friends.
I have known Ragan since 10th grade and we grew up going to the same church and youth group. We were in a group together called ‘Spirit Song’. We were part of an even bigger group of teenagers who would go on mission trips and reach out to people in a unique way through drama, gymnastics, basketball stunts, and singing! We’ve had so many great times and trips together and now, Ragan is engaged to the man of her dreams, James!
He proposed a Disney’s Magic Kingdom with a ring on a glass slipper, RIGHT before the fireworks went off!! Ahhhhhh how romantic right?! Her own Cinderella story! Ragan and James contacted me and asked me to shoot their wedding and I was totally over joyed! But first, I got to spend some time with them and shoot their engagement session in Downtown Tampa.
We started at the Oxford Exchange and then went to the top of a parking garage to shoot with the skyline being an amazing backdrop. James is a very musical guy and Ragan and him love singing together [they sound amazing], so some of their session was centered around that. James played guitar while he and Ragan sang, music sheets flew everywhere due to the crazy wind on top of a parking garage. My sweet friend Annabeth who is also a photographer, was wearing Liam and assisted in making sure the wind was blowing the papers in the right direction haha. I love how the photos turned out and am SO excited for their wedding! Here are a bunch of my favorites!
