This bright, whimsical styled shoot comes to us from Jennifer Garrett of Aggie Photography St. Pete, based in Saint Petersburg, FL! Here’s Jennifer to tell us more:
This styled shoot was inspired by bright, beautiful florals, color succulents -my new obsession- and a stunning naked cake in the the warm Florida sun. I loved the combination of summer and spring florals tied in with a bit of a vintage bohemian feel. I wanted the dresses to also mimic the light and airy style of the shoot so we went with a light and sheer chiffon style.
See more after the cut!
I wanted the feel and the atmosphere to be completely intimate and relaxed so for the location we chose Lake Maggiore Park. This park has been a place of several restful moments for me and one of my favorite spots has always been this gorgeous Banyan Tree. I knew I had to have it as the back drop for this wedding. I wanted nature and the florals to really be the star of this shoot so there was a very simple approach to the decor.
The models are close friends of mine who have been happily married for almost 3 years now, so naturally the love connection was so authentic. Their original wedding photos from their wedding photographer never turned out well so this was my way of redeeming their special day with a wedding shoot. Part of the theme for the shoot was also a romantic and dreamy feel so their personalities fit perfectly.
And of course, St. Pete is a very big on supporting local artists so part of the motivation to even have this shoot was to collaborate with upcoming and established St. Pete vendors. From the sun-kissed glow that our make up artist created, down to the hand-picked succulents for the bouquet, these folks showed off their craft! Our amazing team went above and beyond and made my vision for this wedding shoot come true!
