Carly and Sam: Tampa/St.Petersburg Florida Engagement Photographer

If you’re a skeptic of true love, then you haven’t met Carly and Sam. They are two pretty awesome (and absolutely stunning) people who share the same birthday (very cool!!), love spending time just “being” together and can’t imagine their lives without the other.

When Carly told me that one of their favorite things to do was to just hang out, have a glass of wine and enjoy each other’s company, I suggested we start at their house in Tampa. What better way to start of a session than with a glass (or two);) of wine, right?? It set the mood for a fun, relaxed session in beautiful Ybor later that day. The weather was perfect and we had such a great time!! Carly and Sam had no problem doing everything I asked (including carrying around my photography props…Thanks Sam!!:) Spending the day with you guys truly strengthened my belief in that “movie screen” love we all want 🙂
