Engagement - Ybor City, FL: Corie and Thor

It all started at Starbucks... side glance here... quick look there... Corie was working for a local tv station where they would broadcast their morning show live near Starbucks. Thor and his colleagues from a local architecture firm would make their daily walk to Starbucks for a quick pick me up. Corie & Thor admired each other from a distance for months... until one day, their timing worked out and they no longer had to admire each other from afar, but instead, got to share time together... in front of Starbucks.

Corie and Thor met in Memphis, Tennessee and are planning their June wedding at the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. It is going to be an intimate celebration with a small number of family and friends and we can't wait! Thor is actually a fellow graduate of the University of Tennessee so we're planning on seeing some other UT grads at the wedding as well. =)

Since Thor is big into photography himself, he and Corie encouraged us to try some new things during our engagement session in Ybor City. I am so excited to show you some of our favorite images. =)

Some our loyal blog readers have been asking to get some shots of us in action since we shoot as a team. Bobbi+Mike are some of our favorite photographers and they do this all the time, so we're going to try to add in a little more of setup along with the results. I was lookin' pretty good for this shot since I just got done lying on the ground for another shot... and I'm pretty sure I had some old gum stuck to my pants too. ;) It's okay though, Corie and Thor looked good enough to make up for us.

What I saw from my angle was nothing short of hot.

Yummy warm light plus happy good looking people = sweeeeeet.

Everybody loves a trolley! We hopped on for a few quick shots at the end of the shoot.

Corie and Thor, we had a blast shooting your engagement session. We can't wait to hang out with you guys again at the wedding!

To the guy...

To the guy...
...who sits on the couch and curls his fingers in the holes of the blanket I crocheted for him,
...that likes to keep me up past my bedtime so we can watch a funny tv show together in bed,
...that started playing volleyball so we could spend our weekends together at the beach,
...that reaches over to hold my hand when we're in separate seats,
...that rememberes to drive slowly around corners because I get car sick quickly,
...that rolls his eyes at my jokes but deep down I know he thinks they're funny,
...that can calm me down after a long day by just wrapping his arms around me,
...that always pushes me to do more than I think I can,

Happy Birthday baby, you mean more to me than you know. I will always love you boo!

Feel free to leave some comment love for Chris. =)

Wedding - Tampa, FL: Andrea and Eric

Andrea and Eric got married at the beautiful Saddlebrook Resort in Tampa. The couple's sweet family and friends, who had actually flown in from around the country, made us feel so welcome. Everything went beautifully throughout the day thanks to Kristen K and her team at Saddlebrook and Debbie of The Bride's Bouquet did a fabulous job with the flowers.

Here are a few of our favorite photos.

Andrea's shoes were so glamorous!

I hear the dresses made it hard for these gorgeous ladies to breathe, but it was worth it because they sure looked great!

Chris and I just love it when our couples choose to see each other before the ceremony. It is a great way to ease the nervous energy and spend a quiet moment together before the craziness of the day really picks up. It also allows a lot more time for pictures. =)

Seriously, could this flower girl be any cuter?

One of the sweet moments during the ceremony. =)

Andrea did a great job coordinating the details of the day.

Thank you guys for such a fun day. It was great getting to know you and your family!

Client Information: Canvas Wrapped Prints

We just received a new 20"x30" canvas wrap sample. We just love this image! The colors and quality are really great! We haven't found a place for it yet so here it is sitting on our buffet table. These are a great piece of art to hang on the wall, and don't even need a frame.

The image can be printed so it gets wrapped around the side as well. We decided to have the image wrap all the way around the canvas for this image. Our first canvas wrap just had black edging because the image didn't work well for a full wrap. This image looks really cool when wrapped and it definitely adds something to the print.

You can see some of the pottery I made, stored in the right side of the buffet. =)

This photo gives you more of a size reference. The 20"x30" is definitely a better size than our first canvas sample which was only a 16"x24". The smaller size of our first one is nice, but it really just isn't big enough to stand on it's own and would look better as a pair or a group of 3. 20"x30" sounds big, but it works best over a small piece of furniture. We love this one so much, we may just hang it up right where it is.
