Akeem and JaRhonda regularly enjoy all that the Tampa Bay area has to offer. They initially met at Bank of America, and later reconnected through social media.
Since they recently had their engagement party, they were really looking forward to memorializing this special occasion through the engagement photo shoot. JaRhonda wore two dresses during the shoot, each matching the setting and time of day beautifully.
As you’ll see below, their engagement photo shoot at Curtis Hixon Park, downtown Tampa, was both elegant and modern. Future bride JaRhonda agrees, commenting, “The engagement photo shoot matched our style for fashion in the formal and semi-formal shoot.”
They are planning to vow their love, before family and friends, this fall at the Kapok Event Center in Clearwater, FL. JaRhonda can’t hold back her excitement, saying, “Honestly, I look forward to marrying my best friend!”
Akeem proposed on the morning of Valentine’s Day in a very private, intimate, at-home setting. He had the entire house covered in roses and candles, awaiting my arrival.
How She Found the Perfect Engagement Photographer
“I looked for someone who was relatable to me and my fiancé. [I really wanted to find] someone who took pride in their work, and showed attention to detail,” future bride JaRhonda shares. She really did her due diligence by researching wedding photographers online first. What really made the choice for her? JaRhonda relates, “the great ratings on Wedding Wire, and the great quality of their product.”
