Fun and Light-hearted Engagement Session | University of Tampa Photographer

Vincent and Yvonne started out as workmates in the Tampa Bay area. After becoming friends and realizing how much they had in common, they decided to start dating. Eventually, they became a couple, and now are so happy to announce their engagement. They both have a wonderful sense of humor, which was beautifully captured in their photos. They enjoy all the things that living in Tampa has to offer, and decided to hold their engagement photo shoot at the University of Tampa.




The Proposal
Vincent proposed on the beach in front of their favorite beach bar. This was the same place where they made their relationship official, almost 7 years earlier. Yvonne reminisces, while holding back joyful tears, “We sat on the beach and reminisced about all the memories we had had over the years. The next thing I remember, he had a ring out and was asking if we should get married. I started crying and said, ‘Yes!’.




Wedding Plans
Yvonne estimates that they are 75% done with the plans. Most of the vendors have been booked and they are just working on smaller details now. The look forward to tying the knot in the spring of next year. Their wedding will be held at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, FL.







How They Chose Their Wedding Photographer
“[The most important things to us were]: quality of work, professionalism, a fun and friendly personality, and responsiveness. [We also wanted someone who was] willing to work within our budget.” Most importantly, they wanted to show off their fun and light-hearted personalities. To accomplish this, some fun and silly poses were included, which also allowed them to show how much they really care for each other.

Both Vincent and Yvonne agree that the engagement photo shoot by Castorina Photography & Films captured their personalities perfectly. They are looking forward to their upcoming wedding, and in the words of Yvonne, “The Party!!!”
