Renelle and Anthony met in St. Petersburg after they matched on Tinder. They wouldn’t start officially dating until years later – thanks to Anthony who was determined to make the stars align. Neither of them are local to St. Pete, but they both found a home in this city and in each other.
Renelle reached out to me months ago to plan their engagement session, and I loved how she described themselves as a couple. Outdoorsy and always up for adventure. We originally planned our session around Sunken Gardens since they loved the greenery so much, but after deliberating on a plan, they both knew they wanted to encapsulate who they were together in St. Pete. So, we scratched the original idea and planned for something downtown and also historic.
We started our session outside of Station House – a building full of charm and decorated with brick. Right off the bat it was so easy to get them in the groove. Before I knew it they were laughing and having a great time together. We finished our session at the historic Roser Park – a neighborhood also full of St. Pete charm; mixing greenery with brick. These were by far my favorite images of them! And seriously, they were so brave for standing on the water – scroll down for the images!
