Dustin and Ashley showcased their love for art and creativity through the venue they chose for their engagement photo session. Being St. Petersburg natives, the happy couple was excited to have their photos taken in a place that holds so many full-filled memories. Their love and personalities shine amid the colorful backdrop of the mural that remains from the SHINE Mural Festival.
Having met through a mutual friend, Dustin and Ashley enjoyed getting to know each other while exploring the cultural aspects that St. Petersburg has to offer. “Downtown St. Pete is filled with memories for us,” future bride Ashley shares, “also, we love how St. Pete is growing into a modern and culture-focused city.”
Ashley, being a down-to-earth, private person, didn’t want an public engagement. Dustin creatively and skillfully constructed a beautiful wooden ring box. He proposed at home. Ashley loved every aspect of it, saying, “It was perfect for us!”
Unlike most engaged couples, Dustin and Ashley are completely done with their wedding plans. The engaged couple is looking forward to “celebrating with our friends and family, and adding another memory to our relationship.” They will tie the knot this winter at the Sunken Gardens, a picturesque botanical paradise, in St. Petersburg.
Why They Chose Castorina Photography
Dustin and Ashley were looking for someone who was easy to work with, and who could really capture their style and personalities in the photos. “I was very impressed by Marilyn and Micah’s work,” Dustin relates, “also, I could tell that Marilyn and Micah were very passionate about their work.”
