rockin ybor: kamay and kenny

I love meeting new brides and their soon to be hubbies and Kamay and Kenny were no exception! They were referred to me through a mutual friend and after scouring my website and blog got in touch to see if I could capture their special day. When we first met up Kamay talked about loving bright colors and her desire for wedding images that weren’t so “traditional!” By that time, I felt like it was love at first sight! Nothing pleases me more than to hear a bride request something unique on their big day!

These love birds are getting married on March 6th at the Tampa Convention Center, followed by a reception in the stunning Teatro on 7th. It seemed perfect then, to meet up in Ybor for an engagement session, walking the streets where they’ll soon find themselves dressed in their wedding day attire.

It was loads of fun and quite a challenge for me too… Kenny is 6ft 5 inches tall! We won’t discuss my height, but let’s just say, I stood on my toes a lot! What a great afternoon getting to know one another more, laughing and cutting up and chatting about all the big plans! Be on the look out for one vibrant wedding- Kamay picked pink and black for her colors, which just made me smile even bigger as it’ll match my logo perfectly!

Without further ado, I introduce to you, the future Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Belcher!

Kenny was so great. Any time I looked up to guide him on the next “move” he was already one step ahead! Lots of sweet kisses, tender glances and hugs. Ah…. LOVE! 

I told you he was tall! Models are tall right? (Sorry Kamay, I couldn’t resist!)

When we walked by this alley, I remembered Kamay’s request for some bright colors. I couldn’t pass it up. I’m glad we stopped for a few minutes. This is easily one of my favs from the day!

It’s not bad in a black and white conversion either huh?!

Kamay and Kenny love the movies and frequent this location for dates. It seemed natural that we would spend some time here. I love the way their noses are touching… so romantic!

A black brick wall and a groom in love… WOAH! Another fav!

Ok, maybe I have too many favorites from this day. This couple is just too photogenic! I love the reflection in the window of the sky, which was getting ready to let loose some rain and the light bulbs added a fun touch as well. 

Laughter- what could be better?

I asked Kenny and Kamay to just dance around. I was waiting for that precious moment when sparks fly and they forget I’m watching. Here’s my favorite sequence:

Stopping for a kiss of course!

Ok, hold on, there are some stunning images coming! I mean incredibly stunning

I told you!!!
My goodness! I can’t wait to see their first kiss as husband and wife! Whew! 
And, what’s an Ybor session without a kiss in the streets? Perfect way to close out a perfect session!
Thanks Kamay and Kenny for an awesome time! I’m looking forward to your wedding in 8 days!! I know you’re going to rock those images too!

P.S. Don’t forget to leave some love (post a comment)! For 25 comments, Kamay and Kenny will  receive a free 5×7, for 50 comments they’ll receive a free 8×10!

Beatiful memories of a beautiful beginning…EXTRAORDINARY JOB!

February 26, 2010 - 3:45 pm

Verna Glenn - Well Kenny it getting to late to change your mind, However you are a great actor in these pictures it really looks like you really do love that short girl. Maybe there is something special in small packages “Open with care,”

Being serious I wish you both the very best I know that your love is true. You do take lovely pictures together or the photographer has a great way of hiding the faults. It is now count down time and I pray that you both keep God at the top of your love and in your marriage. Now Kenny once you marry her you can’t bring her back home. Oh! I forgot the Registrar’s Office is not home. Well I guess she can at least come back to work. May God bless this union and keep you both in his arms.

I love you both

Anne Mulvihill - OMG!!!! These photos are completely amazing. Annie you really captured the essence of Kamay and Kenny! The Ybor backdrop was perfect! If I were Kamay I wouldn’t be able to stop looking at myself in these pics. The couple and the pictures are so beautiful. I had two favorites. The picture of Kamay’s hand on the back of Kenny’s head focusing on her engagement ring and the picture of them on the sidewalk and Kamay’s is lying down with her head on his lap. I just love the backdrop of the picture. Simple but classy and elegant! I can’t wait for the big day!!

My favorites are the two of you in the street, the one your smiling at one another in front of the building and the reflection of your love look back at you guys…amazing. Also the one where you guys look so peaceful in the embrace of each other. Loving the black and white and the smile of you too play together.. i just love them all!!! Amazing photographer!!!
