Her mom brought this sweet beach hat for Mia to play with while we took photos, although Mia wasn’t really in love with hat, it did make for some adorable photos.

Cake Smash 101

5 Tips and tricks to the BEST Cake Smash Photo Session Ever

  • For your convenience, WE provide the cake and balloons to go with your theme choice. Choose  from many different themes, props and colors. This Cake Smash photo session happened to be a vintage Mickey Mouse theme.
  • For most babies under the age of 1, they have not tried sugary icing before and to some babies, this very sweet flavor can come as a shock. It is highly suggested that you have your little one try some sugary, sweet icing prior to the cake smash photo session to get them used to the flavor and get over that initial shock they could have.
  • A very smooshy, cold, textured icing can also come to a baby as a shock if they’ve never had the pleasure of digging their little fingers into some icing before. Let your baby play with icing prior to the photo session as well to unsure they want to touch their cake.
  • We want that baby to dig into that cake and make as much of a mess as possible! Make sure your baby is not hungry. Believe it or not, sometimes hungry babies don’t have a sweet tooth and they might crawl away from that cake looking for mama to feed them!
  • Don’t forget to bring one damp towel, and 1 dry towel to clean the baby afterwards. Also a change of clothes would be highly recommended!

 Top 10 Tips for Getting the Most out of a Bridal Show

Ft. Myers, Florida ~ Wedding Photographer

Bridal show survival guide

 

The big day is here….not that big day, but the bridal show day! The day you will be overwhelmed with options, discounts and “Book NOW” deals not even you can refuse.

What should you bring and what will it be like; these are just a few questions you may ask yourself. From all of the shows we’ve been apart of over the last few years, including the Naples Bridal Show on Sunday, November 15, theses are our most tried and tested tips found from The Bride and Groom.com Blog.

1. Arrive Early

Those that arrive first to the bridal show automatically receive some of the coolest prizes.  Many bridal shows offer discounts and incentives for arriving early to the show.

 2.Pre-register before the show

Save time by registering before the show.  Registration only takes a few minutes and will save you from having to fill out a registration form at the show.

 3.Bring your friends

Bringing your friends to the bridal show will help them feel involved and also give you a chance to bounce ideas back and forth.

 4.Contact info labels

Wedding vendors will often have drawings for prizes at their booths. Instead of having to fill out multiple forms with your contact info, prepare some electronic labels before the bridal show.  Information to include: your name, address, phone number, and email address.

 5.Bring a notebook and pen

Bring a notebook and pen so you can take notes.  Write down contact info of vendors you talked to or thoughts you have while attending the bridal show.

 6.Bring a digital camera

Bringing a simple digital camera will allow you to quickly remember some of the great things you saw at the show.  Did you see a great dress during a bridal fashion show?  Maybe there is a great cake from a wedding cake designer.

 7.Know your budget

Setting your wedding budget and knowing who is responsible for each thing will help you make decisions and know what you are looking for while attending the show.

 8.Bring your checkbook

Many wedding vendors will offer a special day-of-the-bridal-show-only discount.  This will help you save even more money if you are able to find your vendor at bridal show.  The Bridal Extravaganza also gives you an additional incentive for booking your vendors at the show – a 2 day, 1 night getaway when you book 3 of your vendors at the show!

 9.Do your research

Know which wedding services you need before the show.  Also try to find out which wedding vendors will be exhibiting. This will help you know what questions to ask and allow you to visit those vendors you are particularly interested in.

 10.Make a day of it

Plan on attending the bridal show for several hours.  This will allow you to visit all the vendors and find everything you need.  Above all – have fun!

Most of all, just remember to have fun and collect as much information as you may need! Having a array of vendors and choices will help you decide what will be best for you special day!

 

And make sure to stop by our BOOTH and say hello!  This show we are giving away a FREE PHOTOBOOTH RENTAL!

The Night Before Your Wedding

5 “Must-Do’s” For Your Perfect Day

Wedding Photographer, Ft. Myers Florida

the night before your wedding

This week, in our email we came across Kennedy Blue’s  newsletter with a wonderful article called “Wedding Countdown: What To Do the Night Before Your Wedding”.  As a wedding photographer, it got me thinking.  What do Brides do the night before their wedding, and what helpful information is there out there that would not only help our wonderful Brides, but make the day of, just a bit more wonderful.

Here are the top 5 Must-Do’s that we liked…. alot… and would suggest for any of our Bride-to-be’s

 

Make a List: When planning an event as big as your wedding day, organization is necessary. Keep track of all of the items you need to bring with you to the venue and check off each item when you pack up your car in the morning. Be sure to check your list twice. A third time couldn’t hurt, either.

Check Your Tech: One of the best things about technology is how easily it allows us to capture memories. However, technology has an odd way of breaking down just when we need it the most. If you thought your printer shutting down the night before a big school paper was due was bad, imagine the sadness that would stem from your camera shutting off long before the night was over. Whether you plan on using a camera for snapping before the ceremony moments or on a tripod for a DIY photo booth station, make sure that you fully charge the device and have plenty of memory space on your camera. Pack your chargers, USB cords, and extra memory cards to make sure all the fun lasts throughout your whole wedding.

Get Romantic: Take time to reminisce on your relationship by looking through old pictures and love letters. Allow yourself to appreciate how amazing it feels to have found the love of your life. After you soak it all in, you’ll be inspired to do something extra special for your groom, such as writing him a heartfelt letter to give to him before you walk down the aisle.

Relax and Rest: You’ve been waiting your whole life for your wedding day, so you’ll certainly be feeling some butterflies on the night before your wedding. To banish worrisome “What if?” thoughts, trust in all of the planning that you have done and simply try to enjoy yourself. Watch an episode of your favorite show, do some yoga, read a book, or something else you enjoy to calm your mind. Most importantly, get plenty of beauty sleep.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Spend Time with Family and Friends: Your friends and family have been there for you in good times and bad, and they surely want to be a part of all the good that is your wedding day. Grab coffee with a few of your close friends in the morning, go out to lunch with your parents, and give other close ones some phone calls to tell them how much you appreciate them and how excited you are for them to be a part of your day. Remember that a simple a thank you goes a long way.
