Downtown St Pete – Alissa & Chris

Jul 29, 2021

Colorful Downtown St Pete Engagement Session

I’ll be totally transparent. If you had told me a couple months ago I would soon be photographing a Taco Bell picnic at a downtown St Pete engagement session, I would have laughed in your face. And yet, here we are and I am so happy we have arrived here. Alissa and Chris’ engagement session last weekend was by far the most colorful engagement session I’ve ever shot. We started out driving to a selection of murals in downtown St Pete. They were all relatively close together but if we had walked we would have been sweaty messes! Then we made our way to the park by the waterfront and set up the Taco Bell picnic. These lovebirds shared their first date at Taco Bell so it was only fitting to do something fun like this during their engagement session. I love it when couples show their personalities!! Starting out with the colorful murals was the perfect compliment. After the picnic, we grabbed a few blue-hour portraits by the water.

Congratulations, Alissa & Chris! We can’t wait for your wedding in November!

Thanks for reading!

XO, Emma
