I always love and am flattered when fellow vendors ask for advice on planning styled shoots. My first tip is usually “it’s going to feel like an actual wedding day.” And by that I mean, even though the pressure of an actual wedding isn’t there, it’s still a ton of work and stress. Finding vendors, organizing timelines, securing venues, dates, wardrobes, all the things. It’s like planning your own wedding only you aren’t the one “getting married.” So why do we see so many styled shoots? Because they give vendors an opportunity to not only work together, but to do so with a lot of creative freedom. The theme for this shoot was Dusty Blue and cranberry, which is a gorgeous palette for autumn and winter weddings. And this venue was absolutely stunning – huge ceilings, chandeliers, a gorgeous bridal suite, masculine groom suite and fabulous finds from all across America blended seamlessly. A full list of vendors can be found at the end – so enjoy these gorgeous captures as you scroll to get there – and appreciate the amazing creative genius that is our Dusty Blue and Cranberry Wedding Styled Shoot in Tallahassee.

Business Headshot Portraits Tallahassee Photographer

Who says business headshots have to be in a studio on a backdrop? Especially when you have an office full of beautiful natural light and gorgeous decor like this one! Michael needed a corporate headshot photo for some marketing I was designing for him but once I got into the lobby I knew we needed some high-fashionesque business portraits first. After all, why waste this amazing space and his tailored suite for just one quick photo?

Hamilton Family Portraits Tallahassee Photographer

What a beautiful family with beautiful hearts! I connected with this family when they reached out for family portraits of the four granddaughters with their Mimi. Both families were in town on the same weekend and wanted to give the gift of photos to Mimi for her upcoming birthday. How precious is that? I love when clients have the foresight to plan something like a photo shoot for a birthday gift. What’s better than capturing these moments forever to display in prints and albums? Capturing these family portraits, especially for Mimi’s birthday, was just wonderful and Mimi’s heart is as beautiful. Thank you, Hamilton family, for trusting me to capture this beautiful time in your lives.

Rainy wedding days usually have bad emotions tied to them. Not with this wedding. And that’s 100% because this couple, and their super fun families, know how to throw a party regardless of the weather. I met Melissa while I was out at the Sweet South French Country Market earlier this Spring. Right away I knew I’d love her and would have a great time capturing her wedding. She is a beautiful, sophisticated and classy woman with a big laugh, who loves having a good time. Her daughters served as her bridesmaids, and her son walked her down the aisle. Shawn is definitely the quieter of the two but once he’s warmed up, you’ll see him cutting it up on the dance floor. The weather looked like it was going to hold for us, giving us lovely overcast light for family photos prior to the lakeside wedding ceremony. But just as Melissa began walking down the aisle, it started to sprinkle. And right before they exchanged vows, the skies opened, the downpour started and everyone hurried inside. They finished exchanging their vows in the intimate confines of the Centerville Conversation Lake House, tucked in amongst friends and family who all served as witnesses. Once the “I do”s were exchanged, the dancing started. And let me tell you – these people can dance, especially in the rain! This intimate, rainy Tallahassee wedding was one for the books!

What better way to capture your family business than with family photos that will also double as marketing photos? That’s exactly what the family’s of Just Fruits & Exotics retail landscaping nursery asked for and I love the results. Bonus for me because it meant I got to wander through their many acres of plants, herbs, fruits trees and flowers and dream of what my own backyard might look like someday! Confession, I’m a plant-aholic so this was a dream for me personally. I should also mention, I’ve been creating branding and marketing pieces too for the nursery and have been working with these families for almost a year now in that capacity so it was wonderful to just hang out with them while also capturing photos. And that’s what I love about family photo sessions, it’s what I strive for. That the experience will feel like we’re hanging out and also capturing beautiful memories instead of being posed and awkward.

I can’t wait to see these family photos on their website and in their branding in the near future and in the meantime, if you’re a small family-run business and would like family/corporate photos please let me know! It’s a great experience for everyone and I love capturing these memories!
