One of the cool things about Tampa is that there are so many different vibes available for engagement photos. Early on in the planning process, I ask my couples if they want more greenery, beach or urban feel. For their shoot, Jess wanted something that resembled their wedding venue: a rustic, woodlands feel. She suggested Lettuce Lake Park, with all its lush greenery, roads covered in arches of trees and its boardwalk tucked away in nature. For anyone considering Lettuce Lake — do it! If you time it right (don’t wait for sunset hour, go about 45 minutes prior because of all the coverage), you get beautiful light streaming through the trees at just the right angle.
Right before we started, Jess and Taylor revealed that they had never done professional photos together and were worried they were going to come out a little awkward. I kid you not, that’s one of my favorite things to hear before a shoot because it’s a fun challenge for me to prove them wrong. Suffice to say they were absolute naturals. By the end of the shoot Jess was even giving the camera model faces, so I know she was into it!
Congrats to Jess and Taylor on their engagement, these are the best photos I’ve taken at Lettuce Lake thus far!
“It really is an art. He was somehow able to exactly capture the fun, breezy, romantic vibe of our wedding day and our relationship, and allow us to completely relive this day through our gallery.”
"I never understood the skill and artistry of a good photographer until I met Eddy"
"He knows exactly how to set the scene to get the best shot. He will listen to your ideas and pays close attention to detail. He’s also very funny! We were so amazed by how beautiful our engagement photos and wedding video turned out! We will cherish them for a lifetime!"
"Eddy has a natural talent for capturing beautiful moments!"
"We can't say enough WONDERFUL things about our experience with Eddy—"
—the attention to detail, ease of working together, his fun personality and his dedication to his work are top notch. Simply capturing the people that were there was one thing, but Eddy captured the emotions and the story behind the entire day and for that we will be forever grateful.
