Shawn and Kathy are probably one of the most adorable couples I’ve had the pleasure of photographing (and that’s saying a lot!). They’ve been friends for 10 years, but only started dating when Shawn came back from his deployment overseas just a few months ago. They came to visit Tampa in late March from their hometown in Quincy, Illinois for Kathy’s birthday, and planned to catch a Kenny Chesney concert and have portraits taken on the beach. Little did Kathy know, Shawn had been planning more with us all along. In the middle of the session, we told them, “Wow, this seems like more of an engagement session!” That was Shawn’s cue. He pulled a ring out of his pocket, got down on one knee, and proposed. Kathy started crying, but through the tears managed to tell him, “Yes.”
Congratulations Shawn and Kathy, and best wishes for your future together!
