Living in Downtown St. Petersburg for several years and loving it for these love birds made this the best location to represent them for their engagement session.

How did you and your fiance meet and fall in love?
We met in Baton Rouge, LA when we were both there for work (working for the same company). I was based in FL, he was based in IA – we were on the same project in LA for a month, then together again in NC for a month. Somewhere in there, we started dating. It was long distance for 6 months, then Alex decided to move to FL. Looking back, we were pretty crazy to go for it like we did.

Are there any favorite things you do together?
Watching college football, traveling, craft breweries, discovering local restaurants and shops, hiking (when outside of FL).How would you describe your fiance?
Handsome, funny, and caring! He has that mid-western attitude that makes him quick to lend a hand to anyone. He always know how to make me laugh, and his eyes are beautifully blue!

What do you like most about your fiance?
 Is everything too cheesy of an answer? He really is just a wonderful person that I am so happy I get to have in my life every day.

Was there any specific moment when you realized you wanted to marry this person?
Not any specific moment – I was just pretty surprised at how quickly I fell for Alex. Knowing myself and realizing how crazy I was about him, it made me realize that this was the real thing.

Is there anything you have in common that drew you together?
Maybe not one particular thing, but definitely our common sense of humor drew us towards each other.

Describe the proposal?
For our 3rd anniversary in June 2016, we booked a sailboat for a private sunset cruise. Since it was Florida in the summer time, of course a Tropical Storm changed our plans. The Captain called that morning and said we had to reschedule or go earlier in the day. Alex wanted to be sure to go out for our anniversary (hmm, wonder why?!), so we chose the afternoon option.

It was actually a beautiful clear day on the water – we relaxed on the front of the boat, sipped on wine, and enjoyed each other’s company. Alex said “I’d like the Captain to take a picture of us on the front of the boat – let me go back and ask him” – the Captain agreed. After posing for a few pictures together, Alex stepped back, got down on one knee & proposed.
