This stunning couple has such a fun story which led them to their The Mirasol Tampa Engagement Photos. Everything about this session was timeless and elegant. From the location to the attire, Valerie and Ryan had an amazing and luxurious Tampa engagement session!
Valerie & Ryan
As a Tampa engagement session photographer I love getting to know you! Your love story is unique and deserves to be captured in a way that best represents you. As I got to know Valerie and Ryan I learned about who they were and came up with the perfect vision for their Tampa engagement photos.
Valerie and Ryan met at a wedding through a mutual friend. Although they didn’t really talk at the wedding they ended up becoming good friends. Ryan soon knew that he really liked Valerie, but when he told her she friend-zoned him. After a bit of time Valerie realized that she definitely liked Ryan and thought to herself, “What am I doing? Why am I not with this guy?”
After 2 years of friendship, they started dating and have been having so much fun ever since! Taking frequent trips to Disney, binging Netflix shows and enjoying the beach together are some of their favorite things to do as a couple. After 4 years of dating Ryan finally proposed the day after Christmas! Both of their families were with them opening gifts. Then Ryan said that he had one more gift for Valerie and pulled out an engagement ring from his pocket! It was a complete surprise for everyone and the best Christmas gift Valerie had every received.
The Mirasol Tampa Engagement Photos
The Mirasol is a stunning Tampa engagement location that combine’s early 20th Century charm with modern day elegance. Built in the 1920s, this historic building doubles as timeless apartment living today. It sits on the Northern end of Davis Island and has a beautiful view of the Hillsborough Bay. And to top it all off, The Mirasol’s Mediterranean Revival style ornaments the structure beautifully. From the three pointed arch of the exterior windows, to the composite columns with a twisted detail, The Mirasol emulates Mediterranean architecture!
In addition to the stunning architecture, The Mirasol has beautiful pools, and lush tropical gardens. Bringing a fresh and inviting aesthetic to your Tampa engagement photos. Every inch of this location is note worthy! But, wait until you check out the view! Just across street is a dock full of sails boats in the Hillsborough Bay. And if you visit on a windy day, you will more than likely catch a few sailors out on the water!
Outfits At The Mirasol
Just as it is important to choose a beautiful location to have your engagement photos, it is equally important to find an outfit that will compliment you! Valerie and Ryan chose wonderful outfits for their The Mirasol Tampa Engagement Photos. Valeria wore the most flattering summer gown, with light blue florals over the white satin. The full length of the gown, as well as Ryan’s dark blue suit, created such a refined look for their Tampa engagement photos.
Davis Island Beach
As I got to know Valerie and Ryan I discovered that they love visiting different beaches together. So, I wanted to take them to get some Davis Island beach engagement photos! They sky was perfectly overcast which offered a light and airy feel to this Tampa engagement session. This looked outstanding with the white sand and lush greenery that accompanied the beach.
Valerie and Ryan walked along the beach talking while watching the sail boats pass in the distance. It was absolutely romantic. A Davis Island engagement session provides a beautiful and relaxing date. It is a time to unwind together as well as capturing your love in the most elegant way! Towards the end of their Tampa engagement Ryan popped some champagne to finish their dat on the beach!
