south tampa engagement: katy + mike

Katy and Mike are the kind of people you meet and instantly connect with. So much so, that the first time we actually got to meet them in person (which happened to be at another one of our awesome couple’s weddings) we seriously couldn’t believe it was the very first time. They laughed at all of our awkward jokes, hugged us like the oldest of friends, and made us feel so stinkin’ special to be documenting their big day. In short, the two of them are the kind of people who you feel lucky to know, and getting to spend even more time with them at their Tampa engagement session just reinforced that.

We met up on the campus of UT, where we were also introduced  to their adorable pup Cooper (who may just be one of the silliest, well-trained dogs we’ve ever met). We seriously couldn’t help but laugh as he flawlessly held his props one minute, and then ran lightning fast circles around us all the next. And after some of the most adorable fur baby photos to date (seriously, just wait until you scroll and see!) Cooper headed home so we could focus on his mom and dad. There were flowers in bloom EVERYWHERE which gorgeously complemented the color palette of Katy + Mike’s outfits, including her stunningly timeless off the shoulder top, and after a quick change we headed to Bayshore to finish the night in the most romantic of ways. The moon was out, the breeze blew, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

Katy and Mike, we just adore you two to bits and hope you know how honored we feel to be the ones along for this journey with you guys! Thank you so much for our (quickly devoured ; ) cookies, and for such an amazing time. This was just the best evening, and we hope you two had as much fun as we did!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
