Yessy & Greg’s Adventurous Tampa Engagement Session

Halfway through our first meeting with Yessy and Greg, it was clear that they had no doubts about us as their wedding photographers— and the feeling was SO mutual!  This couple was referred to us by our favorite wedding planner Taylor Falcon Events, so we all had strong feelings before our formal coffee date that we would all be a great match for each other.  Sure enough, we were inviting them into the McNeile couples’ family and planning their engagement session by the end of our first latte!

We chose downtown Tampa as the location for Yessy and Greg’s engagement session.  This will double as the backdrop for their wedding later this year, so we all agreed that a cohesive visual flow between all of their combined images would be a seamless way to tell their love story for years to come.

We started off with some colorful mural play to bring a lively and vibrant pop to some of their portraits, then dipped down an alleyway where Yessy’s beautiful pastel wardrobe choice was the pop of color in an otherwise monochrome, industrial vibe.

For their second wardrobe look we decided to defer to one of our favorite backdrops:  The laid-back coffee-shop-date scene!  Yessy and Greg role-played some stellar “first date”performances as we photographed them sipping and flirting over coffee at Armature Works.

Topping the evening off with some dancing beneath market lights and snuggling in the streets, our time with Yessy and Greg was a perfect outing from start to finish.  They are an amazing couple with such a natural, joyous connection with one another, and we are so happy that Taylor brought us all together!  We can’t wait to be a part of their wedding day, which will be full of more joy, love, and stunning downtown Tampa scenery!
