Engagement Session - Safety Harbor, FL: Nicole and Ross

About one hour before the engagement session was supposed to take place at Honeymoon Island, the thunder could be heard in the distance slowly getting louder. As we got in the car, the sky darkened and flashes of lightning filled the sky in front of us. We knew the storm was headed west, right toward Honeymoon Island, so we decided to make a last minute change of plans and head east toward Philippe Park in Safety Harbor instead, crossing our fingers that the storm would blow over there. We took a big sigh of relief as we arrived and the clouds began to part.

Nicole and Ross were down from Maryland visiting family in Florida, so we didn't have much time to reschedule the shoot. Aside from the crazy humidity that the storm left us with, the weather was really nice! It's a good thing Chris and I were behind the cameras and not in front because we were dripping with sweat. We have officially entered the typical rainy season for late spring/early summer in the Tampa Bay Area where it rains almost every afternoon. Nicole and Ross were so much fun to hang out with and were total naturals in front of the camera.

As soon as we set up to start the session, we noticed a rainbow across the water. How fun!







These two forgot to mention that they are secretly models, but we figured it out. =)

They both have the most stunning eyes!





It is always great when we are photographing couples that can totally be themselves. These two laughed pretty much the whole time (except when they were modeling of course). Nicole, this one is for you... we caught him =)
