Sailing away into the sunset with Christina & Kyle (Engagement Session)

Our engagement session with Christina and Kyle was a paradise adventure in our own backyard! We already knew we vibed with this couple after a fabulous phone consultation, but meeting them in person was extra amazing. Christina is this bright, contagiously positive ray of energy with a radiant smile, and Kyle is her laid back, go-with-the-flow perfect match.

Their vision for their engagement session involved St Pete as the backdrop, but from some perspectives we have never photographed before! This was made possible by Kyle’s father graciously offering to transport us via the family boat; and never has our mode of transportation for a session been so photogenic and fun!


We could not have asked for a more mild or beautiful evening as we waded in and out of private nooks along the St Pete Beach, with a dreamy peach hue illuminating the sky as the sun set. These two said “yes!” to all of our visions, even when it involved chivalrous piggy-bag rides through knee-deep water.

I could go on and on about the perfection of this evening, about what a joy it was to add a couple like Christina and Kyle to the McNeile family, about how all of these elements combined to bring an idyllic portrait session to life... But I’m going to let these romantic, fun, and adventurous images do all the talking from here!
