Christine & Steven
Oak Manor Wedding

I had the pleasure of getting to know these two sweet people this year prior to their wedding day when they first whisked me away on an engagement session adventure trip to Amelia Island!  We had so much fun together and I loved getting to know them and their families prior to the big day.  What a wonderful day we had on Saturday… everyone was so relaxed and happy to be together.   You could tell that this was a joyous day for all in attendance <3  And so many fun details!  I LOVED Christine’s color choices, especially the deep blue in Steven’s suit and the bridesmaid dresses.  Everyone looked gorgeous!

Congratulations you guys!  I am so happy I got to be a part of YOUR world this year and wish you all the happiness you so deserve.  <3 <3 <3

Bridal Inspiration for the Romantic Beauty

Hello to 2018!!  This year HLP is going to go through some big changes!  The studio is already well underway with a redesign to accommodate in-house editorials!  When Lara of Lara’s Theme asked to do a quick editorial this week, it was the perfect push I needed to get the space started.  We began by clearing the studio and hanging the first backdrop.  This all-white set with the hardwood floor was perfect for our romantic, artsy vibe which looked amazing against Lara’s gorgeous florals!

Winter is coming… well actually, it’s here, kinda… it’s Florida.  Chilly weather or not, we are already just days before Christmas; where has the year gone!?  Sigh… but what a year it has been!  Melanie Paige Events and I were super excited to showcase our favorite new ideas of the season at one of the newest venues in Central Florida, The Mulberry!  This shoot also marks the 1st anniversary for Melanie Paige Events’ business!  We have worked on a ton of shoots together this year and had such a blast doing it.  This shoot was an excellent celebration.  I’m excited to have been a small part of her growth and can’t wait to see what next year has in store for her.

Melanie put this awesome team of professionals together, grabbed a tulle skirt from L.A. Bridal and off we went to create some wintery inspiration!
