Ronald & Amanda

Ronald and Amanda met and fell in love in College. A new job opportunity brought them to Tampa, and they have settled nicely into the Sunshine State. I think the first winter without snow must have sealed the deal.

They wanted their engagement session to represent their new adopted City. We decided on a twilight shoot and met in Ybor City. The first thing you notice about Ronald and Amanda is they have fun together. 

An engagement session is often the first time I am meeting our couples face to face. To break the ice, I ask them to tell me how they met and fell in love. 

We spent the evening walking the streets of Ybor, making pictures of their particular moment, and getting to know their love story. It was such a blast to see how Ronald turned into the sweetest man looking into Amanda’s eyes. You could see Amanda light up as they had their own personal conversation while we recorded memories for them.

During their session, Ronald revealed that they had a unique way of settling disputes in their relationship. Naturally, I had to know, so that I could incorporate it into their session. Ronald went on to explain that they play Rock – Paper – Scissors to settle any disputes that arise.

 I found a bench and sat them down and had them play Rock – Paper – Scissors as we captured their interaction. It was perfect!

We all deserve to feel this cherished. It was such a joy to be a witness to it – and we cannot wait to be there for their special day, February 22, 2019. Congratulations!
