Valentine's Day Inspiration Shoot

Happy Valentine's Day, Lovebirds! 

Whether you are single, engaged, or married; everyone enjoys looking at pretty things. We were able to collaborate with some amazingly talented vendors for this Valentine's Day shoot and we couldn't have been happier with the end result. 

This shoot came to life when we met the Monday night prior to our Friday shoot. It was myself (Whitnee), Cassie Adkins, The Family Affair crew- Alan & Misty. At this time we didn't have anyone who could contribute floral, so we were going to attempt it ourselves. Luckily, Kasey with KB Events & Design came in to save the day and offered to put together the hanging flowers, a bouquet, and a centerpiece. Our lovely couple, The Holtons, were nice enough to model for us and did a beautiful job. Who says that you can't put something magical together in just a few days?? Well, ladies and gentlemen, we did it!

We wanted the look and feel of this shoot to be fun, flirty, and pretty. Our inspiration began with classic Valentine's Day staples- Roses and Sprinkled Sugar Cookies. The simplicity of these items with the tableware and the linens that A Family Affair rentals provided; paired incredibly well together. With the location being at our lovely stables, and the beautiful day it was, we couldn't be happier with the way all the colors looked inside and outside of Highland. 

Models: For our lovely model, Rachel, her makeup was done by Devon Rhodes with an enhanced natural look with pink tones on her lips and in her blush.  Her hair, fixed by Megan Ethridge, was loosely curled with a braid on the side to add texture and detail. Her gray dress with details of lace was purchased through Amazon. Our handsome male model, Nate, had his hair done by a local barber, Ernie Thomas, and Nate's pink jacket, shirt, and pants were all purchased from the men's clothing supplier, FHG Clothiers. 

As wedding vendors, we each love the opportunity to be creative and styled shoots are a wonderful way to do this. We hope you enjoy these photos taken by the talented Cassie Adkins.
