Jasmin Runyon | Encourager

Hello friends, 

The one thing I love about doing personal branding sessions is getting to meet beautiful and smart women ready to conquer the world with their passions.  This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting Jasmin, a very smart, fun and certainly extraordinary woman in every way.  Jasmin is an encourager and her passion is helping women grow their businesses by providing them with guidance and support, empowering them to take the next step.  She’s also a super-mom, during her session I got to meet her sweet daughter Caroline, a super sweet and adorable young lady who did so well during the entire session!

Always stay humble and kind!

Savannah + Ryan |Casa Feliz

 

Omg you guys!!  

We are SO excited to finally share our blog post about this amazing and sweet couple, Savannah and Ryan.  

We met them a couple of weeks ago for their engagement session.  We were so close to reschedule the session due to some unexpected circumstances including weather and yet God timed everything to be SO perfect, not only the skies cleared up and we had a beautiful sunset but we were able to meet this extraordinary couple as they get ready for their big day, their wedding.  

Remember how we always talk about and suggest to our clients to bring something dear to them, this always makes every session unique and even more special.  Well, Savannah & Ryan decided to bring their skateboards and OMG this was probably our favorite part of the entire session.  It was so original, super fun, and SO romantic at the same time, it truly showed their romantic story.

We can’t wait to capture their special day!

Anniversary Session at Casa Feliz, Winter Park FL

This was the first part to a two location anniversary session we did this past weekend.  This beautiful session took place at the Casa Feliz wedding venue located in Winter Park, FL.

 


The combination of colors, the blushes, whites, and the beautiful brick walls with  touches of Cinderella blue simply turned the entire session into a storybook.

 

Yesi was wearing this gorgeous long, flowing white and blush chiffon dress.  When it comes to choosing what to wear for your session, we always recommend plain pastel colors, specially blush and whites for our beautiful ladies.  Don't be afraid to pair with an accent necklace and ultimately add the unique touch of  your favorite flowers.

Looking dapper never goes out of style, so gentleman, don't be afraid to suit up!

Overall, this storybook session was simply a beautiful chapter in our clients love story.  Check out our session with this lovely couple at Kraft Azalea Garden, and the fun rose petal shots we took of them.  Casa Feliz never fails to impress our clients and their experience in this captivating historic site.

Until next time, cheers to love & marriage! 🥂

Roni + Yesi l Kraft Azalea Garden

Hi Everyone! OMG we are SO excited to share this gorgeous anniversary session we had this past weekend at Kraft Azalea Garden, Winter Park FL.

Ok, we have to admit, we simply LOVE LOVE LOVE the city of Winter Park! There is so much to do there, and for us photographers there are so many beautiful sights to capture.

The little paths are one of our most favorite spots to capture love stories like this sweet couple Roni & Yesi who were celebrating their anniversary!

The captivating tall trees and the greenery around them simply allows any photographer the opportunity to play with creativity and capture those precious moments.

 

 

Yesi was so excited with the idea of taking this beautiful shot of them laying on a bed of pink rose petals. This part was SO much fun, and so romantic!

 

We enjoyed it so much that we are SO ready to do it all over again! Just let us know if you are ready to lay down on a bed of roses!

Cheers to love and marriage 🥂

BRIANNA + LUKE BODEN~ WEDDING SNEAK PEEK!

This past Saturday we had the honor to photograph a very special friend of ours and our children, their former elementary school teacher Brianna. 

Brianna & Luke’s wedding took place at a beautiful beach in New Smyrna, FL.  We got to meet a very special little guy that seriously stole our hearts! Little Kaleb, Luke’s son! 

Going through their wedding photos, trying to choose the few for sneak peek has been so hard as they were all so lovely! Just like our bride Brianna who looked like a goddess with her beautiful white dress and her genuine smile!

If there is one thing that makes any photographer happy it is an enthusiastic couple… 

This was certainly the case with these two love birds, Brianna & Luke.  They were SO much fun to work with! 

The afternoon was perfect, the location beautiful and we cant wait to share the entire album. 

Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Boden!

Congratulations!! 🥂

Choosing The Right Location For Your Photo Session

Selecting the right photographer that meets your needs may be challenging with so many options out there!  Then you spend hours on Pinterest trying to figure out what theme you want to go with or how to best dress your family and at last you realized you haven’t even chose a location for your session yet.  

Casa Feliz, Winter Park FL

We totally get it, this whole process can be quite overwhelming!  But we hope that our tips will help you get inspired and find your location in no time, leaving you more time to pamper yourself, being more prepared and confident on what to expect the day of your session.  

After working so many couple sessions and family sessions we have experienced how important location is for your photos, they don’t only make a pretty background, but they tell a story about you, your love story, your children, and one day when you look back to that photo you will remember how special it was.  

A couple of months ago we had a session with this lovely family,  we remember asking the mother if she had a location in mind, and her response was so quick, so certain.  She described how every time on her way to work she would drive over this bridge overlooking the huge lake and the best part, overlooking the gorgeous sunrise. It made her wish that she could just capture that moment! 

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stop the traffic on a major highway for an hour to give her that session in that exact spot!  However, we took her to the bridge next to it, a bridge overlooking the same river and the same sunrise.  It was perfect, and not only she was able to add extra touches that made her session super special, like bringing their family dog, but now she can look back to those photos, think of that moment and always remember that special time she had with her loved ones.

So when you are determining the location for your next session, don’t think so much about being creative with backgrounds, instead think of special places that make you think about your love story, your children or even your childhood.  What ever it is that makes it special to you, I promise you that you will appreciate the moment even more and those photos will be your story turned into everlasting precious memories.
