Downtown St Pete Waterfront Proposal | Engagement Session

Couples

He asked. She said yes! This downtown St Pete proposal at sunset along the waterfront and cityscape is one for the books!

I met Wes at one of my first social gatherings when I moved to St Pete back two years ago. We both enjoyed photography and both decided to head to an Instameet with the St Pete Instagram community at Weedon Island Preserve on north St Petersburg. It was both of our’s first Instagram meetups so we didn’t really know anyone else (at least I didn’t) so it was easy to find comfort in another fellow newbie, and we have been friends ever since. Then at the start of this past winter, I received a message from him asking if I would be willing to photograph him proposing to his girlfriend, Clare. It was an “ABSOLUTELY yes” answer that he got in response from me. We quickly started working on how we were going to plan this to make sure it went on without a hitch! It was decided that he would do it on Clare’s birthday weekend while he was in town as were some of her closest girlfriends. With the help of these lovelies, we set the plan into action! She enjoyed a spa day with her BFF’s the day before, and then on the day of the proposal, they decided that they would head down to Spa Beach Park close to sunset for him to take photos of all the girls while everyone was in town. Little did she know, that I had already staked out a spot waiting for them to arrive! After a handful of photos of the girls together, one of her friends said she’d take a few photos of Wes and Clare together, and that is when he got down on one knee and I swooped in to capture all the action!  After he popped the question, she said yes, and the happy tears were wiped away (and phone calls were made to parents!) we took some photos of the two near the Yacht basin and within the marina. I also don’t think we could have asked for better weather with a perfect golden hour! And to be able to capture such a momentous day had me on an absolute cloud nine the rest of the evening. Below are some of my favorite images of this adorable couple from their proposal session. I cannot wait for their wedding next year! Enjoy!
