Jay, Larrisa and their sweet boys recently relocated to Tampa Bay from New England and we were so happy to welcome them to their new city with a photo session. Larrisa reached out to us before they even moved down here and we were super honored because they are a wedding photography team as well!

How long have you been married?

We've been married just over three years.
