Prediction – very soon Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is going to become Tampa wedding photographers favorite spot, if it hasn’t already. Shooting in downtown of Tampa has always been a lot of fun – it’s urban feel provides an excellent setting for bridal photo shoots, engagements and even wedding portrait sessions. But with the addition of this wonderful park, I can not think of any reasons to go anywhere else! All you need for great photos is right there – the great sloping green lawn, fountains, seat terraces, highrises as a backdrop, not to mention multiple traditionally popular downtown photo locations just a block or two away.
Curtis Hixon was where we started with Maria and Alex last weekend, couple of hours before the sunset. And while I could easily shoot at that park for two hours and never run out of ideas, we decided to mix it up a little. Alex wanted to take some pictures in Ybor, while Maria preferred University of Tampa’s campus. Luckily, both places were nearby so we managed to cover both.
First, we went to Ybor and walked down the 7th Avenue, taking few photos here and there, having fun, stopping at a cigar shop and their favorite La Creperia restaurant. From there we drove to the University of Tampa campus, where we took some awesome pictures by the Hillsborough river with downtime skyline in the background at twilight.
Enjoy these pictures and stay tuned for their wedding this December!
