Love in The Plant Shop // Elopement Inspiration


WELP. I was super hoping to get this shoot published but I just couldn't wait to share any longer! SO no shame in my game but I would LOVE to get this published somewhere so if you are interested just let us know ;) I'm sure myself and the other incredible vendors wouldn't mind at all! (wink wink)

We wanted to just CREATE. The vendors involved were given a ton of creative freedom, and we had an amazing time together. Style Hair & Makeup  did an incredible job as always, we wanted to do a more "moody-romantic" look and it turned out incredible. Our models are really great friends of mine, and they had just brought their perfect little pup Arlo into their lives. So of course we had to include him because JUST LOOK AT HIM. FairyTail Pet Care came along to make sure Arlo was taken care of and spoiled all afternoon and we loved having them!! Our first location was Fancy Free Nursery in Tampa, FL. They also KILLED the florals for this. I MEAN COME ON.

Without further ado....Let's DO THIS.


Florals & Venue : Fancy Free Nursery

Puppy handling : FairyTail Pet Care

Hair & Makeup : Style Hair & Makeup

Dresses : Luna Lee Vintage, Free People

Models: Skyler Simpson, Tony Davis, & Arlo Davis

Assistant: Abbey Turner

If you live anywhere near Tampa and have even the slightest interest in plants and greenery then you NEED to check out this new venue Fancy Free Nursery. It is absolutely gorgeous, and a truly unique little shop that also happens to make an insanely gorgeous wedding venue. 

I mean GUYS. COME ON..... Maybe another reason I haven't blogged this yes is because I knew it would take me forever because I was so obsessed with EVERYTHING about this shoot it would be incredibly hard to pick which images to share. so SORRY NOT SORRY, but sparkles dogs and plants are pretty much my favorite things in the world so this shoot is everything and I'm giving up on formalities here and sharing the crap out of these because well I have waited long enough to share them and I'm SO excited.


Arlo won the best good boy award that day, and no one wanted to hand him back to go home, a very furry kidnapping was very close to happening.

For our second look I found this black lace dress at Free People and when I sent it to Skyler she fell just as much in love as I did. It's perfect for making a statement and comes in other colors too!     

We finished up our session during blue hour at one of my favorite beaches. This is my new favorite time for photography. The light is soft and blue and just a little magical. 

Well if you made it this far THANK YOU!!! I know this blog post was a long one but I have been waiting to share these for quite awhile and this shoot was just too amazing to NOT share a million photos. I also want to say a huge thank you to all the amazing people who came together to just create and make a little magic. There's inspiration out there everywhere, but I hope this finds someone and inspires them because that's what this is all about.
