Fort De Soto Couples Session | St Pete Beach Photos
There’s nothing quite like a session at one of my favorite parks/beach – Fort De Soto – with an amazing couple!
This adorable pair met back in 2016 at the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. Melinda was working as one of the bartenders in the festival center. Chris was visiting from Miami with his parents and went to the counter to buy a soda and saw that Melinda’s ID tag said a college from California. After asking where the college was, he found out she was from the town right next to where he was just at for the Grand Prix of Long Beach. After showing off a few pics of his trip to Cali, he ran and got a business card for his photography business from his camera bag and gave it to her. A few days later, she added him on Instagram, they started chatting, and the rest is history!
As is probably evident from where they met, this couple LOVES to spend time at Disney World! And they live pretty close to it in Orlando, which makes it easy to do! But they also are big foodies and enjoy finding new restaurants…especially in the Tampa and St Pete area. So when we were deciding on a location to do their shoot, they were totally down for coming out to St Pete (and then, of course, exploring the latest food scene in the area afterward!) We ended up heading to one of my all-time favorite spots for shooting – Fort De Soto – and got some pretty epic shots (if I do say so myself! Haha). Below are some of my favorites from their session. Enjoy!
