Artsy Christmas Styled Shoot With A Zebra! – Mae Small Photography

Hey hey pearlies!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.  I figured this flashback post was the perfect way to end the year.  🙂  Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year…enjoying those you hold most dear.  ❤ Original Post Below: Good morning Pearlies!  I LOVE Christmas! Looking at all of these awesome shoots makes me want to snuggle up with a blanket and hot chocolate.  There’s something so magical about Christmas time, and this styled shoot from Mae Small is a perfect example of Christmas magic!  We love the overall artsy feel and the natural palette with pops of red.  It’s just absolutely gorgeous!  We know you will agree, but read on and see for yourself! The featured couple is so cute and quirky and I think the bride’s headband is absolutely adorable!  Here comes more with the zebra! Such beautiful details!  Everything has a rustic meets vintage appeal and balances well with the youthfulness of the couple.   We hope you all enjoyed this post as much as we did!  Thanks to Mae Small …

Northwoods Styled Shoot

Oh Em Gee!  All I can say is GORGEOUS!  Keeping with our Christmas in July Theme, it seemed like a perfect time for this Northwoods Styled Shoot by the super awesome Ron Delhaye Studios.  All of the wedding professionals need equal amounts of credit for the magic that happened here.  Ashley Thunder Events is an amazing stylist and took the time to hand dip these gorgeous linen napkins.  She really thought of every detail for this cozy little shoot. Wardrobe, Floral, Hair, Makeup and the chemistry between the models is just breathtaking.  A little birdie told me that Ashley even made the tulle skirt since the one she purchased didn’t arrive on time!  That’s is dedication and the mark of a true wedding planner! The table setting and fire is so warm and inviting.  This intimate affair is definitely one for the books with every amazing detail… right down to the little heart shaped marshmallows. This stunning photo is my favorite.  The bride’s floral crown is to die for and you can actually feel the …
