Hi, I'm Ruth


Our Ultimate Wedding guide

Everything you need to know for every aspect of wedding planning!



Engagement sessions provide so much to my brides-to-be, without spending a lot of time! During the engagement session you will build a connection with me, learn posing tricks, have enough photos to fill our home, and so much more!

But if you need some convincing…

Here are my Top 5 Reasons Why you Must-Have an Engagement Session:

1. Form A Connection with your Wedding Photographer

The most important part of your Tampa Florida engagement session is forming a connection with your wedding photographer. You wouldn’t invite a stranger to your wedding, so why would you invite a stranger to capture it all in photos? During our engagement session, I want to form a deeper connection with you than I am able to over the phone. I want to become a familiar face that you will be happy to see on your wedding day!

2. Learn To Pose for Photos

Unless you model for a living, you probably don’t know how to pose for your wedding photos and that’s totally ok! One of the comments I hear the most from my couples before a session is “how awkward they are on camera”, but those are the same couples that end up looking like models in the photos. That’s because, being a wedding photographer in Tampa for all these years has given me plenty of experience in posing couples.

I have so many tips and tricks to help you look and feel your best! No matter your body type, height, or insecurity, you will love the way you look in your engagement photos! You will leave your Tampa Florida engagement session feeling confident and excited to get your gallery back.

3. Use your Florida Engagement Photos for Save The Date Cards

You Tampa engagement session photos have so many uses! Hang them on your walls, give them as gifts, even use them for your Christmas cards! But the most common use for them is for Save The Dates. Sending out Save The Date cards to your friends and family as soon as possible is so important for your wedding day. You want to make it on their calendar before another event comes up. That way you have everyone you love and care for at your wedding!


4. Become Comfortable in Front of the Camera

Feeling comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day will make all the difference in how your wedding day photos turn out. Think of your engagement session as a test run. Practice relaxing and feeling comfortable with not only me, but also my camera! If you do this, then on your wedding day having my camera around won’t be as big of a deal. It will feel more natural and comfortable, resulting in more candid photos!

One of my main goals when approaching an engagement session is to create a comfortable and fun atmosphere for you and your honey. That way, you can be yourselves and I can capture dreamy candid photos. Your only job during an engagement session with me is to have fun, I’ll take care of the rest!

5. Enjoy an Awesome Date!

My favorite reason of them all is that this will be the best date ever! We are going to have so much fun running around downtown, exploring a new beach or wherever your Tampa Florida engagement session takes us! I want you to have a good time and really get to slow down and enjoy this short amount of time that you are engaged. And what better way to do that than to go on an adventure with me and my camera capturing it all?!

So there you have it, my top 5 reasons why you must have an engagement session!

Having a Tampa engagement session is one of the best ways to ensure that you will have a successful wedding day photoshoot. The benefits to having an engagement session are so great, and make such a difference that you really need to consider it essential. Let’s connect and plan a time to capture this beautiful moment in your life!
