Bok Tower Engagement Session | Tampa Engagement Photographer

We're starting the week with a Bok Tower engagement session that includes a cute picnic inspired by the Fourth of July American and our couple's work--they're veterinarians!

Amanda and Jose crossed paths while studying veterinary medicine. Eventually, they became friends and found they shared a special connection.  Fast forward a few years to their new lives in Florida and a Fourth of July gathering with friends and family.  As the sky lit up with fireworks, Jose surprised Amanda with a special question, to which she answered, “Yes!”

We met up at Bok Tower for their engagement session where a surprise picnic awaited this fun couple—yes, I love spoiling my clients. I believe it's important to invest in a couples' experience because without them my team and I wouldn't be able to do this work we love.

The color palette for the picnic was inspired by the Fourth of July’s red, white and blue. Little details pay tribute to Amanda and Jose's commitment to caring for animals. What followed was an afternoon of exploring the gardens at Bok Tower and the Pinewood Estate. Can’t wait to document their wedding day this summer!

It's wonderful when clients trust me, let their camera-nerves fade away and simply enjoy being together. Oh, and champagne helps!

We wanted to create an experience unique to Amanda and Jose, which led us right to their engagement story for the Americana inspired color palette and their veterinary work for the adorable details, like the ceramic pug and terrier pillow, for their picnic.
