The night before our planned engagement session, Amarilys reached out worried about the weather and we chatted about new dates and locations. It’s Florida, after all. Even in November the rain can swing by in an instant. But, as you’ll immediately see in the pics below, not only did the sketchy forecast clear up, it was quite literally perfect weather: temperature in the 70s, sun shining bright and not a cloud in the sky. Add in this iconic Tampa location (which was a last minute change I was more than happy to accommodate!) and this session turned out to be a stunner.
Richard and Amarilys also read my engagement session guide and they looked beautiful with subtle matching colors — and Amarilys even got her engagement ring cleaned as the guide suggested!
I kid you not, after I snapped the first few pictures, I knew the session was going to be special. They went right into the next pose without any prompting and had this genuine laugh and energy about them that comes when there’s a true connection. Seriously, it was impossible to take a bad picture of these two and it’s how I ended up with nearly 1,000 photos to go through at the end of the session.
Using Plant Park in the beginning and then the eye-catching architecture of the Henry B. Plant Museum gave us so much variety. Add in perfect sunlight along with some new prompts from me to really get the smiles going and this culminated into one of my favorite sessions of 2021!
“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.
