Beautiful Victorian Wedding Venue
Vintage Photography on wedding at University of Tampa
The Famous 19th Century developer, Henry Plant built the Tampa Bay Hotel in 1891. Today a wedding at University of Tampa offers a photographer great opportunities for vintage wedding photography. These pictures are from the wedding of Erin & Clayton Long in July.
The Victorian architecture with the antique stairways provides a perfect setting for sepia, vignetting, soft contrast, and other nostalgic photographic effects. We have shot many engagement shoots at this historic Tampa venue because of the variety. A walk down the hallway brings you back in time to the bustling popular hotel it was in the early 1900s.
As well as vintage photography, a wedding at University of Tampa provides a wide variety of backgrounds. There is the contemporary look with the Tampa Skyline. There are nice shots of water being right on the Hillsborough River with the Kennedy Street Bridge in the background. There is also a nicely brick paved area amidst palm trees that is located right next to the Kennedy Street Bridge. The University of Tampa also provides great nature shots with plenty of greenery between the Hillsborough River and the building.
There are water fountains and statues for some unique backgrounds. There are stairs both inside and outside which allow us to creatively stagger a bridal party. The Reception was in the beautiful domed ceiling Fletcher Ballroom.
On the video below, the ceremony & reception was at a different location but we took all the pictures at University of Tampa . In the 3min 22 second mark on this video, you can see how we used the outdoor scenery at UT. We incorporated a drone so it gives you a great view of the whole area.
