I am so thankful that Lauren and Mike chose the Westin Tampa Bay as the location for their elegant blue and purple waterfront wedding. I’d had one other opportunity shooting a wedding here before and I was dying to get back to this location. The sunset views over the Tampa Bay from the rooftop (BluVu Room) and the ballroom can be so amazing! That evening, we, unfortunately, had some stormy weather on the radar so we didn’t get those epic sunset photos, but we DID get some amazing windblown and moody images that I am in love with! I also photographed Lauren and Mike’s engagement photos in downtown Tampa and on Davis Island at sunset, so we still managed to get in some pretty sunset photos of this adorable pair there. For their wedding day, Lauren chose a beautiful cool palette of blues and purples which was perfect for the bayfront location. She also had touches of ivory which was perfect with her absolutely breathtaking fit and flare ivory wedding gown. And the groom looked equally dapper in his navy suit and purple tie. Everything came together flawlessly! On top of the amazing location and an equally stunning (and kind-hearted) couple, I left their day so excited to start editing their images so I could share them! Big congrats to the bride and groom! Below are some of my favorites from the day. I hope you enjoy them!
