NATALIA’S senior portraits at The Alfond Inn in Winter Park, FL

It’s been a little while since I posted on the blog, and I am getting caught up with the photos I haven’t posted yet so without further due, today I am sharing Natalia’s senior portraits at the Alfond Inn!

Natalia is a natural in front of the camera, and had so many good suggestions for her photos. I love when my clients suggest ideas, and we are able to incorporate them; it makes the photo session so much more personal and tailored to them.

Natalia carefully curated her outfits and accessories to reflect her love for fashion, so we focused on capturing the beautiful outfits she put together, and most importantly her shining personality.

We chose The Alfond Inn because it is one of her favorite landmarks in the Winter Park area, and because she loves visiting and shopping around there. We also captured a couple of shots of her with her little sister Adriana and her family.

Natalia, I wish you the best at UCF and officially welcome you as a “Knight” 😉

LAUREL’S boudoir portraits in orlando, fl

Boudoir photography has become one of my absolute favorite photography specialties. I gives me the chance to be creative in front of the camera and highlight a woman’s natural beauty and sexiness through the lens. Laurel’s session was very special for both of us as it was my very first boudoir  portrait photography session as well as hers. Laurel is a writer and is writing a book on conquering fears (read more about it here), and this was one of her fears, being “exposed” in front of a camera. So with an adventurous heart and many ideas we jumped right in, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Let me tell you that if she hadn’t mentioned it was her first boudoir session, I wouldn’t have believed her as she was so natural and sexy in front of the camera. So let’s raise our glasses to conquering your fears, and if you are wondering if you should do a boudoir photography session, don’t think about it anymore, just do it!

ART IN LIFE fine art photography at bella collina in montverde, fl

This past month I was invited to participate in Bella Collina’s Art in Life photography exhibition.
When I received the invitation from Paula of Posh Able Events to participate, I was ecstatic and honored! As Paula explained, The Art-In-Life Exhibition called upon a select list of Central Florida Fine Art Photographers to share their talents in showcasing the natural beauty, architectural splendor and lifestyle of Bella Collina through artistic photography.As Bella Collina is one of my favorite wedding venues, I was challenged to come up with beautiful imagery that really represented its beauty.

When walking the grounds, you get a sense of peace, and I really wanted to showcase that in my photographs.
I also wanted to showcase the beautiful carefully thought out architecture, and the amenities there are for the residents and members of the club.
To achieve this, I focused on layers and angles to convey what I was feeling, and to draw the viewer into the composition.

The symmetry and lines of the bell tower from down below are just beautiful and intriguing.

There is a beautiful mixture of nature, earth, and sky throughout Bella Collina that I wanted to sum up in a photo, so to do so I shot about 10 times to come up with this double exposure of the grass and skies, and this might be my favorite photo!

The juxtaposition of nature and architecture is very prominent throughout Bella Collina, and I wanted to pay homage to it in my photos.
When I saw the free flowing grass and the clubhouse in the distance I knew I needed to showcase that.

I got lucky it had stopped raining, and I was able to shoot the skies and wrought iron detail through this water puddle!I really love how free I felt to photograph and be creative, and I thank Paula , Bella Collina, and the Artistic Ambassadors for letting me be part of this amazing art exhibition.

MELINDA + FELIPE’S elopement portraits at disney’s boardwalk in kissimmee, fl

Disney’s BoardWalk is one of my favorite places to photograph at. The scenery is fun an relaxed, and the lighting is really pretty specially around sunset, and that is exactly what Melinda and Felipe were looking for for their elopement session.

Melinda and Felipe are madly in love and crazy for each other! As Melinda would explain it “Like all great soap opera romances, we met at the hospital where we worked together”. We asked them a little bit about their story and elopement and this is what they told us…

What was the overall theme and style of your wedding/elopement and how did you come up with it?

We eloped, so it was very intimate and personal. We chose Disney as the back drop, particularly the BoardWalk, because we have spent many vacations there as a family, but rarely experience it as a couple. And since we are kids at heart, it was a no-brainer!

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

The weather!!

If you could have changed|done something different about your wedding day what would it be?

We intended to make it an elopement; and be personal, but will have a small ceremony with our children on a separate occasion as they are central to our lives as well.

Any advice you would like to give to newly engaged couples?

Spend time together. Often times, we don’t need to speak…just listen.
Don’t sweat the small stuff; half the time the things we think are monumental are merely tiny bumps. And if you are in a “discussion” that seems like one of the “small stuffs” kiss your partner, laugh, make a funny face…just out of the blue. Guaranteed you won’t even remember what the “discussion” was about.

I love Melinda’s advice to newly weds and could not agree more!

I hope you have an amazing rest of your week.

See you soon,

MAURICIO’S CAKE SMASH portraits in Lake Nona, FL

When Linnette told me she wanted me to take photos of Mauricio I was thrilled. It seemed like yesterday when I took photos of him as a newborn, and now I was able to document his first year! What an honor!

In addition to Mauricio “smashing” a mini cake, she wanted me to take photos of different things he enjoys along with portraits of just him and his cute expressions. She sewed clouds, the number one, and had several items he liked ready for him to play with at the session, and we had the greatest time capturing him just being himself! The one thing that we did not expect was Mauricio’s reaction to smashing the cake; he was not so thrilled and actually cried! After all, who wants to get their hands dirty right?!

In addition to documenting this big step for Mauricio, Linnette also wanted the photos to be able to create an infographic to give to Mauricio’s birthday party guests as a keepsake. This was a such a great idea, and Siuleth with Eleven Note designed the coolest infographic for them! I love it when my photos get printed and used in unique ways like this!

Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the photos to see what she created.

NOELLA + PATRICK’S VINTAGE GLAM wedding at wild acres villa in paisley, fl

Noella and Patrick met through mutual friends on a blind date. Noella’s only requirement to agree to the blind date was that he owned dogs. Well guess what, he was indeed a dog owner, and since that blind date they fell in love and never looked back!

Their wedding was truly beautiful. Noella, being an interior designer, had a great vision for the style and feel of their wedding.

I asked her to share a little bit about about their wedding story, details, and some advice for newly wed couples, and here is what she told us…

• what was the overall theme and style of your wedding and how did you come up with it?

Organic/vintage/glam. The idea was to branch away from the idea of a typical wedding venue. We wanted our guests to feel like they were transported to a Remote city in Europe. Having studied architecute in school, I feel in love with the European villa located in the Ocala national forest. The villa has so many artistic details from the stained glass windows, barrel vault ceilings, and vintage furniture pieces. the outdoor element reminded Patrick of family vacations on the farm outside of Charleston. The venue holds special resemblance for the both of us and was a perfect back drop to begin layering the design details of our wedding.

The idea was to contrast the old world feeling of the villa with sparkly glam moments creating a dichotomy between the old structure and new modern design elements.

  • did you have any unique details|traditions at your wedding?

The bridesmaids carried vintage parasols instead of bouquets. We had an ink bar where guests could sign their message in an artistic way using stamps or various speciality pens.

  • if you could have changed|done something different about your wedding day what would it be?

I would have hired anonther assistant. Having your wedding in a secluded forest means it’s harder to get your hands on necessary items like water!!!

  • any advice you would like to give to newly engaged couples?

Enjoy the planning/design process. Start gathering photos, pinterest boards, and looking at wedding blogs as early as possible. This will help inform decisions of the overall look/mood of your wedding.

This wedding is truly one of my favorites to date. The attention to detail and the overall feel of family unity is so tangible. Weddings to me, are all about that making your day unique to you, and  celebrating with family and friends the bond and union to your soul mate.

MODERN LUXE EDITORIAL behind the scenes

There is so much that goes into planning an editorial shoot from gathering a team and preparations to the actual execution of all the details the day of. Usually we only share the finished product, but I think the process is just as beautiful. That is why I want to share some photos we took during the process of all the wedding professionals setting up and working together towards the finished product.

MODERN LUXE WEDDING EDITORIAL PHOTOSHOOT at snap space in orlando, fl

i am so excited to finally share our modern luxe wedding editorial shoot with you; it was published in 100 layer cake and we are ecstatic with the feature!

as you might know, along with shooting weddings, i love styling and collaborating with other creatives to create amazing inspirational wedding editorial photo shoots to inspire brides to be. this past summer, my friend siuleth and i got together to brainstorm ideas, and we came up with the theme “modern luxe” inspired by the industrial beauty of snap! space. as we’ve been wanting to collaborate with laura of ashton events for a long time, we invited her to join the team. after a brainstorming session at snap with laura and lisa, we came up with some amazing ideas of how to use the space in unique ways to showcase the raw beauty of it while creating unique vignettes.

the angular nature of the different elements of the shoot was inspired by the jewelry line of alexandra of sommi jewelry. you can see these elements throughout in the cake wall, the invitation suite, the guest table, and the ceremony area as well as in the little details. i love the idea of drawing inspiration from the unexpected such as a modern jewelry line!

the overall color palette was black, white, gold with touches of cranberry. these colors were carefully chosen to contrast with the white brick walls and exposed cement of the venue.

laura created an angled metal detail on the wall of the cake area by mixing metal finishes and attaching flowers to it. the cake was purposefully off centered on the wall to create an asymmetrical balance with the wall detail.

the ceremony area decor was a play of angles and balanced asymmetry by having the florals cascade from the black ladder and providing balance with the beautiful cinder block display. the black angled rug made the bride’s gown really pop!

the invitation suite designed by eleven note was beautifully bold and unique, and really brought all of the elements of the shoot together!

LH PHOTOGRAPHY website and blog redesign and promo film!

over the last couple of weeks we’ve been working non-stop to redesign the look of our website and blog. we wanted them to have cleaner aesthetic to better represent our photography brand and style. that is why we went with a simple design that really showcased the photography and information. along with the redesign, we partnered up with asha of bright frame films to create a promo video so that you can see us in action and learn a little bit more about our personality. we wanted the film to be an insight into a day in our lives, our photography style, and us as a couple. we visited the east end market, one of our absolute favorite places in orlando, and later we went to the orlando wetlands park to photograph a newlywed couple, ameer and lyndie. despite the humidity and mild rain, asha was able to capture what we are all about, and she blew us away with the results! feel free to view the video below, and learn a little bit more about us!

and here some behind the scenes photos of the shoot!

the same day asha filmed our video, we shot some self-portraits so that we could update the photos for the about us section of our website. we found a great spot near our house and set up the tripod with the camera and the shutter timer. anybody passing by would’ve laughed seeing me walk back and forth to the camera, and my husband standing still to set up each photo. it was a workout for sure, but it led to really natural photos since we were literally laughing out loud because of the ridiculousness of it all! here are some of our favorite photos we captured.
