If you’ve never heard of a stylized shoot before, allow us to show and explain. We have created some magical friendships with vendors in the wedding industry over the years. With these friends we’ve often banded together to put on a “stylized shoot” or “mock event”. We come together with a coordinator, makeup artists, cake baker, florist etc, with one vision. It’s our time to shine and show off our stills and have fun with it! For this stylized shoot we centered the vision around this couple! Amy and Brent and their love was our driving inspiration. Amy has been with us at Life Long Studios as a photographer and album designer for over 8 years. She has helped make Life Long Studios what it is today. She is always in the constant pursuit of beauty and brings an incredible sense of excellence to everything she does!


Amy brought with her own gem collection for accent pieces on the tables. The gorgeous textures of the gems against the soft flower petals was so perfect showing a glamorous elegance…just like Amy! We had such a fun time posing her and her husband together with their amazing dog Burly! Their playful love is so inspiring!

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The wedding took place at the Barn at Crescent Lake. Locals around here remember it as Old McMickey’s Farm where we would go to for field trips as kids. While you may still take tours to visit sweet farm animals, this day the sweet residences of the farm let us share their beautiful spot on the lake! The bride got ready at the cute little cabin on the grounds. We did a romantic first look then had free range all to ourselves around the farm. We just love all the beautiful old oak and pine trees and the cute little boat house! The ceremony over looked the lake followed by a the couples reception celebration in the barn!

This romantic industrial wedding took place in Grand Rapids MI. We had the pleasure of traveling outside our Florida stomping grounds to capture this amazing couple’s special day! Their venue was an old factory building that had recently been renovated for events. It still had the charm of the old brick and factory windows. The brides soft details and accessories popped so well!

We had the amazing pleasure of shooting this incredible stylized shoot at the Postcard Inn! The event was coordinated by Blue Skies Events. The beautiful flower arrangements and decor was artfully put together by Iza’s Flowers . A Chair Affair brought in amazing rentals. The Artistic Whisk brought the perfect cake! Michele Renee Studios did the makeup for the bride and her bridesmaids, they got creative and it turned out so fun and pretty! Our guest of honor, the model cockatoo! Was brought over for his close up by his agent at Joel Slaven’s Professional Animals.

The day was simply perfect and set the stage for a gorgeous wedding. Our couple wanted a classic and timeless style for their big day and that is exactly what they achieved. Their details and energy made for the perfect photo combination. The day was nothing short of perfect from start to finish. Our favorite part of the day was capturing their exit as they burst through a tunnel filled with balloons; such a unique ending to a magical day!
