June & Paul

University Center Club — Florida State University

It only takes one visit to the FSU campus to realize there are a vast amount of beautiful scenes to photograph. Throw some people in the mix and you’ve got yourself an engagement shoot. I met June & Paul earlier this year and enjoyed their quiet yet warm demeanor. While getting them positioned in the stands at FSU’s Dick Howser Stadium, they informed me they had not taken any photos professionally since high school (!). Consider me honored.

Or you can skip ahead to the Wedding.

Wedding

Being big fans of FSU and the Seminoles, it was only natural for them to choose a location that is in the heart of 'Nole nation — the University Center Club at the Doak Campbell Stadium.

Nothing quite like tradition — June & Paul’s cake topper was the same that was used at June’s grandparents’ wedding more than 60 years prior.
