Downtown Harbor Island Engagement Session | Tampa, Florida

It all started with a choice.

A choice that we will never forget after meeting Tonya and JB at “our Starbucks”. (You know… the one where we meet all of our new besties- we mean- our Cooney Couples. 😉)

From the moment they walked in, it was just completely evident that they were totally in love.

Like they had spent their whole lives together… and as they began to tell us about their love story, it all kind of made sense. Because in our personal experience, some of the best loves are the ones that come from a friendship (and if you’ve read our Becoming the Cooney’s series, you know exactly what we mean).

The kind of love that stems from laughter and patience and an active ongoing choice to hang out with one another without the feelings of pressure or obligation to do so.

Just pure choice.

Choice to become and remain friends after Tonya asked her new next door neighbor to help her install her new light fixture in her new home. A favor that turned into a friendship. A friendship that turned into a love story. As if they were writing their very own love story.

A love story that not even Mr. Walt Disney himself could have dreamt up.

Because even though JB didn’t rescue Tonya by asking her to throw her long hair down to him so he could save her, or by finding a glass slipper and searching the whole village for her, we know in our hearts that their kind of fairy tale is the real kind of fairy tale worth writing about. Because the kind of love that they share?

It is the kind of love that will last the test of time.

Tonya and JB, we are so incredibly honored that after Frances and Pedro‘s wedding day that you just knew you had to be a Cooney Couple. To be a part of something more. Something greater. To be a couple that didn’t just have a good love, but a couple who would have a great love. The kind of love that overcomes obstacles, again and again, because at the end of every day, you two continue to choose each other- over and over again- just like you did from the very beginning.

Hugs and lots of love,

Shauna and Jordon
