Dani & Sam
Dani & Sam decided they wanted the whole vibe of their engagement session to be modern, fun, grungy, and different than a “typical” engagement session. I knew right away it was going to be amazing. Dani & I brainstormed some ideas and settled on Ybor for the location.
Downtown Ybor City
Our first stop in Ybor was an awesome cigar bar called Long Ash. They hand roll cigars right in front of you, and it was the perfect spot to have a drink, loosen up and get some moody shots.
Dani wore an amazing long black elegant dress with the cutest pearl gloves. Next, we stopped at one of the best pizza places I have ever been to and ordered the biggest pizza they had.
These two enjoyed their Due Amici Pizza on the sidewalk, which made for the cutest photos. After that, Dani changed into the cutest white tulle party dress with killer white ankle boots; her dress showed off her personality perfectly and went great with the amazing rooftop sunset.
Our last stop was a tattoo shop! Yes, you read that right, these two go the sweetest little tattoos that go together when they hold hands.
How To Make Your Engagement Session Fun
Engagement sessions are such a fun part of the wedding process. Why not document this part of your life? I am always available to help with outfit planning and location ideas.
The goal of an engagement photography session is to be something enjoyable for you two to do as a couple. That is why I say there are really no rules when it comes to an engagement session!
Do you want to do your photo session at your favorite bar, a plant shop, a park, or the beach? We can make anything happen!
As you can see, Dani & Sam’s modern downtown engagement session was out of the box, but it was a blast and pretty much a full date night. Don’t be afraid to do some activities you two love together. I would love to photograph your engagement! Send me a message today to book! Downtown not your vibe, check out another one of my engagement sessions here!
These pictures are stunning… what a fun and different idea for engagement pictures… what a beautiful, fun couple and so many outstanding pictures… all in all looks like a fun evening and now one to always remember?
Oh what memories!
What a fun engagement set of pictures.
I think someone enjoys being a bride!!
Just beautiful!! You captured their love for each other so wonderfully!! These are magazine worthy!! Excellent job!
I don’t really know where to start. I’ve been friends with Ryley for some time now and this is not our first time shooting together. She’s leaves me speechless every time, but these were extra special to me. Not only does she always make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, but she really captures who you are as people in her work. Sam and I couldn’t have imagined a better date night with better company. I can’t thank you enough for going along with every idea I threw at you and crushing the coolest photo shoot in history. You’re amazing and I love you! Thank you so much, xoxo
Photos are gorgeous!! Love the spontaneity!!
Great job! Xo
