I was so excited for the opportunity to capture some Tampa engagement photos this year at Clearwater Beach in Florida! First off, this was my very first time on the Gulf Coast!!! And that beautiful blue water and crystal white sands., well, let’s just say, I think we are going to like living in Tampa!

Now, this is going to make some people mad…and I’m sorry….

But growing up in Hawaii, I was pretty sure I had seen the most beautiful beaches in the world!!! And while Hawaii is still paradise and home to me, I have to admit, the Gulf Coast beaches are absolutely incredible!!!! Want a snippet of the most beautiful cotton candy skies and waters? Check out Jami and Logan’s Couple photos in Sarasota!

Again, nothing against Hawaii, but I think I’m gonna like it here!! Especially if I get to capture amazing couples like Julia and Gabe in front of my camera!

Tampa Engagement Photos | Julia and Gabe | Clearwater Beach

I knew when we decided that we were moving to Tampa that I was going to love it here when I first Googled Clearwater Beach!

I kept this image that I found on the Tampa website on my desktop for months! Hoping that I would be able to photograph beautiful couples and love here one day!

I just lucked out and got to photograph a beautiful engaged couple even before I moved to Tampa!!!

I keep telling you guys, I think I’m going to like it here!

And if you are wondering, yes, it was everything I dreamed of!! And, the photography gods had my back with this stunning, vibrant sunset for these epic beach photos!

I know that I keep saying it, but if this is how Tampa is going to be just after these engagement photos, then yes, I am really excited to be living here ( we are just going to skip right past the HUMIDITY and act like that’s not real! LOL!)

Thank you so much Julia and Gabe for being one of the first engagement sessions I got to capture here in Tampa! Your love really shined as bright as the beautiful sunset that day!
