This is the third time I’ve had the honor of photographing Shelley and the second time I’ve had Alex in front of my camera and let me tell you, they NEVER disappoint! When I heard they were engaged I was so excited for them, and to be completely honest, also selfishly hoping they’d contact me to capture this season of their lives. I couldn’t have been more ecstatic when I received Shelley’s email!
We planned another early morning session…(Alex deserves a prize for getting up before the break of day again!) We met up at Davis Island, where these 2 lovebirds enjoy spending time together. We then headed over to the downtown Tampa area to finish up.
Oh how I have tried to narrow these pictures down, but alas, I could not. So, you’ll have to feast your eyes upon this couple for awhile. I guarantee you will understand my dilemma!
These pictures all sparkle with shades of blue and since Alex’s last name is moon, it seemed fitting to include these lyrics along the way…
I LOVE everything about this next one!
Seriously, isn’t she gorgeous?
While Shelley and Alex were sitting down I caught out of the corner of my eye this older couple rowing over to the dock. I thought the fresh, young love juxtaposed by the more mature, seasoned love would make a fun image. It became even more perfect when the lady gasped, hands over her mouth, perhaps realizing they were entering into the frame. So adorable! It makes me smile every time I see it!
Alex and Shelley requested a shot of them snuggling on this bench. I love the way the sky turned out- just perfect!
And, I have to tell you, I saved my favorites for the end of this post. These melt my heart. Touch my soul. Express Shelly and Alex’s love in a powerful way. I think you’ll agree!
Hands down- this one is my absolute FAVE!
Thanks guys for trusting me yet again! I am eagerly awaiting your big day!
