The Couple and Why We Chose DTSP

Nick and Carolina had known each-other from past jobs but it wasn’t until a friend and co-worker’s wedding at the Birchwood in St. Pete where they first felt a spark. So, when Nick reached out to me wanting to propose to Carolina, we couldn’t think of a better place to propose in Tampa {Bay} than where they began their relationship; downtown St. Pete! Straub Park, in Downtown St. Pete is one the best places to propose in Tampa Bay. The park is spread out, has water views and these beautiful banyan trees! Nick had planned to propose on a weekend when Carolina’s family would be in town. We staged an elaborate story about a couple’s photoshoot and had arranged for Nick to pop the question about 15 minutes into it and be able to celebrate with the family afterwards.

The Photoshoot/Proposal

We started the photoshoot near the Vinoy. My style as a wedding and engagement photographer is all about warm, romantic and authentic moments so I sort of let them “do their thing” while I snapped photos as we walked, talked and made our way towards the beautiful banyan trees where he would ask Carolina to be his wife. I partnered up with To the T Productions, a local wedding videographer as well so that they had their proposal on video too!

I set them up in a specific pose for a picture. It was then where Nick got down on one knee and asked Carolina to marry him. Both families cheered on nearby as Carolina said “yes”. After everyone hugged and cried happy tears, I followed both families upstairs to the Canopy at the Birchwood.Nick had reserved space for a mini engagement party for them! And this is another reason I think downtown St. Pete is one of the best places in Tampa to propose or get engaged. There are a ton of restaurants and bars within a 30 second walk where you can continue the celebration!

Check out some of my favorite shots from before, during and after the surprise proposal! So much fun! Whether you are a bride looking for a wedding photographer or a guy looking for someone to capture your Tampa Bay proposal, I would LOVE to be involved. Reach out today to get the conversation started, I can’t wait to hear from you!
