There’s something extra special about photographing friends. I can’t quite place it, but there’s a little extra enjoyment and yes, a little extra pressure! Danny and Devon were a couple friend that I met through my wife, and one of the first friends we made in Tampa when we moved here in 2017. From barbecues and a Super Bowl at their place to celebrating Gasparilla, it’s always been a blast together.
So of course I was honored when they asked me to photograph their engagement session and on Devon’s birthday to boot! I know Danny is a jokester so he was going to have a blast getting smiles from Devon all evening long and boy did they deliver. Everything was so easy with them and they were game for everything. And I love that they brought a champagne bottle (the good stuff, too!) to pop and celebrate at the end of the session. When a couple has some props to incorporate, it elevates the shoot that much more.
I’ve had a chance to photograph engagement and family sessions at Plant Plark/University of Tampa and I will never get tired of it. The variety of scenery within walking distance is nearly unmatched anywhere else in Tampa. You have the river, the cityscape backdrop, the unique architecture of the Henry B. Plant Museum and some hidden areas of University of Tampa. And the best part? You’re already dressed up and within walking distance for a dinner date right after.
Cheers to Danny and Devon, I can’t wait for the wedding!
“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.
