UPS Engagement Session | Fun, Unique Engagement Shoot Ideas

UPS Engagment Shoot | Unique Engagement Session Ideas

Tampa Bay engagement sessions should reflect your personality, and Liz and EG’s shoot featured a playful side of the couple at the groom’s profession.

“The theme of our engagement shoot can be described as ‘us.’ We were able to incorporate EG’s career and mix it in with our fun and exciting relationship. He has been working for UPS for the past ten years. We are appreciative that the company gave us the opportunity to take pictures on their property, use their trucks and allowed us to show the UPS logo. As far as we know, this is the first time that a UPS engagement shoot has been done,” the bride-to-be explained. “We’ve seen a lot of other engagement photos where couples would include the uniforms of their career, such as a police officer or a firefighter, and we thought it would be fun to have EG dressed in his UPS uniform and pose with his truck. The pictures of EG and I laughing while riding his dolly or him sweeping me off my feet was simply just us having fun and being ourselves.”

After shooting at the UPS warehouse in Brandon, the Riverview couple headed to one of their favorite spots in Ybor City.

“The second half of our engagement shoot was in Ybor City. We love to have dinner at Samurai Blue and catch a movie at Muvico Centro. We wanted a place that would reflect our relationship and Ybor City is our perfect date night!” Liz shared. “Those pictures show our romantic side. The vintage style streetlights and architecture made a perfect backdrop for our sidewalk embrace.”

To capture their pair’s fun-loving attitudes, they hired Tampa wedding photographer Carrie Wildes Photography.

“EG and I wanted a photographer who would be able to capture our personalities. We are both really goofy and love to laugh, so we wanted someone who could make our humor come to life,” Liz explained. “When I contacted Carrie, she was quick to respond. She has a very likable personality, and after our first meeting, we were sold.”

The couple will tie the knot in April at a country club near Sarasota.

“We are excited to have all of our loved ones come together in one place to help us celebrate our wedding day. Many of our guests are traveling from out-of-state, as far away as New York and California, so we are looking forward to seeing our fun-loving family and friends!” the bride-to-be gushed.

How did you and your fiancée meet and fall in love?
At the time, I was a server at a Beef ‘O’ Brady’s. It was a slow Saturday afternoon when a group of guys walked in and sat at one of my tables. EG is naturally a jokester and was trying to make everyone laugh. When I went up to the tables, EG and I made eye contact. That night, he found me and sent a friend request on Facebook. On our first date, he took me mini golfing and then to the beach to watch the sunset. I knew that night he was a keeper.

How did he propose?
Last August, EG and I purchased a home together. Prior to moving in, we did some remodeling. During construction, his parents came over to see our new tile floors. During the walk through, everyone went into the master bedroom, but I went to check the bathroom. EG called my name and asked me to come in the master, and there he was, down on one knee. His mom recorded the entire walk through of the house so she continued to film the proposal. That was one of the best days of my life!
