Shannon & Logan | Hollis Gardens | Lakeland Wedding Photographer

August 19th, 2014

I had never shot at Hollis Gardens before.  I had never even been to Hollis Gardens.  So when I second shot with Kristen Marie Photography last month at Hollis Gardens, I was seriously pleasantly surprised.

I had never shot at Hollis Gardens before.  I had never even been to Hollis Gardens.  So when I second shot with Kristen Marie Photography last month at Hollis Gardens, I was seriously pleasantly surprised.

They had their ceremony inside at the Magnolia Building and even though it was hotter than blazes outside, we had to hit the gardens for formals.

One of the things that I loved about this wedding was that they put their own spin on things.  The super hero pins as boutonnieres, Shannon’s Wonder Woman pin on her bouquet to accent Logan’s Superman?  Flippin’ brilliant!  Her brother was her Man of Honor (loved this!!)

Shannon really put the simple personal touches on their wedding and it was perfectly them!

Shannon and Logan decided on doing a first look (which I highly recommend) and the look on Shannon’s face says it all.  No other words are needed.

Having craft paper across the tables was a genius idea!  All of the tables had crayons so that the kids (and the adults) could color/draw all over the tables

I thought it was so cool that instead of having a guest book, they had a calendar so that guests could add their birthday’s to the calendar!  Genius!

School starts Monday.

SCHOOL STARTS MONDAY!

Okay, most of my seniors won’t be as excited as I am but with a 7 year old home ALL THE TIME, Monday can’t come fast enough!  So with that, your senior pictures are right around the corner.

If you go to a Pinellas County School, they’ll make you dress up in that wonderful shawl,  tilt your head this way and best of all, you’ll look like every other senior in the yearbook.  Really makes you unique, huh?

That’s where having your senior pictures done with me is amazing!  Your session is unique to you and even though you can’t use them for the yearbook, it’s a whole lot better having something to remember instead of sitting in some big box studio looking like everyone else.

So how are you supposed to rock out your senior session?  Let me tell you the way!

 
Make your session yours!
When you book with me, a few weeks before your session, I send out a questionnaire to get to know you better.  Your likes, your music, movies, what you like to do, etc.  This helps me get to know you and start figuring out a location perfect for you.  I want your location to represent you.  There are so many places out there to shoot and while yes, you love the beach, think outside the box.

Christina loves the Great Gatsby so she rocked out a killer flapper dress, the pearls and we headed down to Ybor.  Not only did we get an amazing session around Ybor, we also shot inside the Don Vicente Hotel to wrap in that 40′s-50′s era.

Accessorize it out!!
The week before your session, I shoot you a reminder about your session.  In that email is also a link to my senior Pinterest board.   Not only does this board give you ideas on posing but it gives you killer ideas on outfits and accessories.  Bring on the hats, the scarves, the necklaces….don’t leave them at home!

Drew brought out this hat and I really think I shrilled a little bit!  As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what we were going to do and we did it and she rocked it!

Bring your best friend!
Who makes you laugh more than your best friend?  Yeah, exactly!  For obvious reasons, parents are always more than welcome to come but usually parents make you a tad bit uncomfortable but if your mom/dad have plans on coming, bring along your best friend too!  Other than me acting like a total fool, they will usually help you to get a little more comfortable in front of the camera.

Taylor and Christina are a perfect example of that
