The month of August went by so quickly with so many changes occurring at KWP. This keep up post is filled with sneak peaks at weddings like the trip to a destination wedding in Mexico, some headshots taken at the studio including our new three interns and of course all things baby! We had two newborn sessions followed by an adorable baby shower.
Friday, August 8: Brittany and Ryan Anstrom were married in a low-key, nautical inspired wedding at Pymatuning Yacht Club in Pennsylvania. Ryan, an expert sailor, has grown up on the lake and they now share a beautiful lakehouse there with their 2 children. It was the perfect location for their tented wedding, with beautiful weather and great food! Photographed by Kristen and Gabe.
Tuesday, August 11: Devoted Creations ad campaign. It was Kristen’s second year shooting for them and this time there were different looks including workout wear from Fabletics. Styling by the talented Melanie Pace , Hair and Makeup by Jillian Caro, and video by seltzer films. Our 2016 spokesmodel is the gorgeous Elizabeth Smith!
Friday, August 14: Pilly and Mat Miller were married in a stunning ocean-side ceremony in Mexico. Kristen has known Mat for almost eight years and was so excited they choose her to be their wedding destination photographer in Rivera Maya Mexico at the Grand Velas Resort! Anthony joined her as the second shooter, and came home with some new besties and a rather red skin-tone.
Monday, August 17: Kristen joined the fabulous Beachbody team to take some brand new headshots for their marketing! These coaches are such great women – they’re ambitious, dedicated and a ton of fun!
Wednesday, August 19: Shazaad-Ali’s Newborn Session at the studio. It was really funny to watch Kristen and Gabe try to figure out how to put my little one inside the bundle. With Gabe’s skill, we managed to get the perfect shots! And here is a behind the scenes secret, he really wasn’t sleeping the whole time. He had his pacifier in his mouth and right before they would take the picture, I would pull it out of his mouth and put it back in before he cried. It was a tough session but how adorable did these pictures come out?? — not just saying that because he’s my son– As soon as Kristen sent me the photos, I had two canvases ordered for my house and his nursery– Thank you Kristen and Gabe!
Later that day was another session with the beautiful ladies from Heaven events center. Kristen took them outside our studio for some fresh natural light shots. Then we pumped it up inside the studio by dancing to our playlist and bringing out the fan! Sometimes letting loose in front of the camera captures the best smiles, which is exactly what happened with these ladies.
Friday, August 19: Long time friends and clients, the Varley’s, welcomed their second little girl to their family. Rowen Elizabeth is now little sister to Harper and already a natural in front of the camera. She’s also a pretty good little sleeper!
Saturday, August 22: Rachel from an Affair to Remember is having a baby girl! Her “Oh Baby” themed baby shower had amazing details and a yummy diy waffle bar. Congratulations and we can’t wait for the little princess, Charlotte Faye!
Tuesday, August 25: Kevin and Kim’s joined Kristen in downtown Oviedo for a fun engagement session! Best yet, they brought donuts for the office! We can’t wait for the December wedding!
Later that afternoon, there was a party going on at the studio with KWP’s three new interns! We threw them a little party for them to get to know one another and indulge in fabulous cupcakes from sugar suite! Welcome Priscilla, Emily and Erin to the KWP Team!
