Joe and Kristin met while in college 12 years ago! Their first date was actually at the St. Pete Pier when it was still the place to be.
Life went on and over the years, they’ve always made sure to keep in touch. Two and a half years ago, sparks flew again and they officially started dating! Then, this past November, something really exciting happened. It was a Friday evening, a cold front had come through the bay area. Kristin and Joe were taking a walk by the pier in Downtown Safety Harbor, (a place they go at least once a week together!) it was drizzling and chilly. The water was so still, you could see a stingray and some fish swimming along the bottom! At that moment, Joe got down on one knee and asked Kristin to marry him! It was the sweetest moment and she of course said yes!!
For this reason, Downtown Safety Harbor holds an extra special place in Joe and Kristin’s hearts and it was the essential reason they chose this location for their engagement photos! I loved seeing the actual spot they stood when he popped the question! I’ll make sure to point it out in the photos below.
Downtown Safety Harbor is a quaint little town with a great variety of locations to choose from! There’s a row of colorful houses, a small marina, the pier and plenty of park-like areas to use a backdrop! If you know me, I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when they chose this spot! Jon and I had a blast with Kristin and Joe; They definitely knocked their session out of the park and this girl (me) has so many favorites! I hope you all love them!! We can’t wait for their December wedding this year!
Okay! Bottom left photo is right where Joe got down on one knee and popped the question!! SO sweet!!
