Casey & Jessica • Downtown St. Pete Couple's Session • St. Petersburg, Florida

Casey & Jessica celebrated their one-year anniversary with champagne and photos! We had fun wandering around Downtown St. Pete with these two. It is always fun to photograph a married couple because, at least for an hour or so, you get to watch them fall in love with each other all over again!

What is still a favorite memory from your wedding day?

Casey: Jessica and I decided to do a first look with each other just before the wedding ceremony because we thought it would make for some heart warming pictures to look back at. The photographer found this cute little bridge and stationed me facing out towards the open field with my eyes shut waiting for my bride-to-be. I waited for what seemed like decades while I was shaking, sweating, and going through all of the possibilities of what her dress might look like. Shortly after, I heard a quiet voice whisper in my ear to turn around where I would find the most beautiful sight I could imagine. To this day I can vividly picture every inch of her dress, her perfectly crafted hair, and astonishing makeup. But for me. the single best memory from our wedding day was turning around on that bridge and seeing my wife's smile. Moments like this don't come often in life and the joy, love, and compassion behind that smile will forever be locked in my mind.

What is still a favorite memory from your wedding day?

Jess: Walking out to see Casey waiting on the other side of the little bridge anxiously waiting to see me for the first time as his bride. The moment he turned around all of my nerves disappeared and I knew that was the only place in the world I wanted to be. He wrapped his arms around me and for the first time the weight of long distance was completely gone and I knew this was the start of our forever.

Jessica as explained by Casey:

You know the feeling you get when you are having an abnormally good day and everything seems to be going right? That is Jessica to me. When we met I had the classic 12-year-old crush and over the years it developed into a beautiful friendship and marriage. Not only is she the most honest and loving person I know, she is my best friend and every moment with her brings light to my happiness and warmth to my heart. She's kinda the best.

Casey as explained by Jessica:

Casey is the most driven person I've ever met. He pushes me to be my best self every single day. His kindness and genuine heart do not go unnoticed. He is the best travel partner and always puts up with my singing on road trips. He lifts my burdens and he is a undeserved blessing.
