Jacksonville Children’s Photographer

Eden and Abby’s sister portrait session was full of all my favorite girly things: cupcakes, pearls, a white picket fence, and big floppy hats. They are the daughters of Jacksonville’s best wedding DJ (at least in our eyes!), DJ Jacob Towe, and we had a fun time playing dress up and documenting these cutie sisters at this precious time in their lives.

I just love this session. I got a little teary scrolling through. I so badly wanted Prissy to have a sister! The one of them holding hands and walking away? I love. LOVE! And those hats… oh, the floppy hats!

Jacksonville Senior Photographer

In the future, I guarantee you that you’ll be watching a movie with Kaitlyn’s name as the director.  This budding filmmaker is a Senior in Jacksonville this year with dreams of outdoing Spielberg one day.  For her fashion senior photoshoot, she brought an old vintage Brownie video camera that used to be her grandmother’s, and Stephen got the fun idea to wrap her up like a mummy for fun in the old film reel.  We had such a blast photographing her bright blue eyes and bubbly personality while she rocked it out in her Betsey Johnson dress and cheetah heels.

Class of 2013 Senior GIRLS,

We’re still booking Senior Sessions for this year!  If you didn’t like how your standard ones turned out, or keep waiting to the last minute to get them done, now is the perfect time to reserve your date as this cool weather starts to set in!  If you know Kaitlyn, ask her for more details on how you can also get Senior Photos you LOVE!  Email us at scarlett@scarlettlovesstephen.com for more info about how to book YOUR session!

Very Beautiful Senior! Great Shots!!

Fashion Bridal Shoot for Lenna Bea Veils

At the time of our wedding, I was excited to cross paths with a super talented mother daughter team who made super fabulous wedding veils.  I knew I wanted something out of the box and not your standard traditional bridal veil, and these girls were able to take my vision and create an amazing custom veil/fascinator/headpiece/gorgeousness.  They have a popular store on Etsy where you can buy directly their head pieces as well as sashes, bracelets and more. They were recently in need of some updated product inventory photos for their portfolio, so we had fun teaming up to rock it out for a fresh portfolio for them.  For brides looking for something extraordinaroy to add to their wedding day style, I can’t recommend enough these wonderful ladies, Cindy and her daughter Lenna Bea.  Not only are they talented at what they do, they have beautiful hearts and are a pleasure to work with whether you are ordering from their existing products or creating something custom.  These ladies happen to be local to Jacksonville, but ship products to brides all over the world.  To meet these ladies further, here’s fun behind the scenes video we did with Cindy and Lenna Bea last year!

The land of Lowes. // Guest bathroom makeover

It started with me saying to Stephen, “Hey babe, let’s makeover our office this summer.”

But then, as we begin the process and go into Lowes for just paint and a paintbrush, it then turned into, “Ooooh, we should replace our sinks in all the bathrooms”, and “Oohhh what about these new light fixtures” and the list goes on.  So what started with a simple redecorating of our office, has then expanded to other parts of the house.  While the office is still under construction, we have currently wrapped up our guest bathroom.  Now mind you, we are NOT “do it yourself” kind of people, but we found this to be a very good exercise for our marriage to give it a whirl.  In the past week as worked on the guest bathroom, we’ve had our fair share of water drop on our head as we tried to learn Plumbing 101 in replacing the sink, we’ve gained muscle holding up the light fixture that wouldn’t fit right because the right size screws didn’t come in the box, aaaaaaand don’t get me started on my oh so crappy drywall job as we removed the previous towel bar and mirror on the wall.  My dad, who was a drywall contractor for a living, would be oh so disappointed.  But my solution?  Figure out a creative way to cover it up!  And what better than with inspirational B&W photography photos! ha!

Here’s the before and after our of guest bathroom.  The office and more to come soon as we accomplish it!

We painted the wall with chalkboard paint because we decided it would be fun for our guests to leave messages on the wall when they stay with us.  The new light fixture is from Lowes, turned upside down.  And I found this fabulous white glossy glam mirror at Wayfair.com by Cooper Classics.

The new black sink is from Lowes.  I still can’t believe we replaced our own sinks.  I never thought I’d see the day where either Stephen or I were under a sink with a wrench.  But we did learn in the midst of this where our emergency water turn off main is to the house.  Never knew that existed before hand, and apparently it’s important to know where this is in case of flooding.  Do you know where yours is?  ha!

Fabulous photography ripped from magazines to hide my un-fabulous drywall job behind it when taking down the previous towel rack.  But it actually ended up going really well with our black and white theme bathroom!  And I *think* I got the friend signs from Hobby Lobby years ago.

OMG I seriously love it! You both did an amazing job.

I LOVE it!! The mirror rocks!! I am still decorating my house/ spot I have clients meet with me…. it seems to be never-ending! LOL! I just spent $300 on instagram canvases for my stairwell. I am excited to showcase more of my work around the house :-)

The places our cameras take us.

This time last week, we were chilling with our clients at a private villa in the Bahamas.

I recently said to Stephen, “How did we become such jet setters?”  Some days I feel like I blinked, and now all we do is travel more than we are ever home.  It’s not something I set out to do or become.  I was never the type that said “I want to be a destination photographer.”  Through our clients’ gracious referral after referral, it just kind of… happened.  When people ask us, “How do you become a destination wedding photographer?,” I never really know a magic answer to give them other than the greatest thing my momma told me back in college when I was trying to choose a major:

“Do what you love, and you’ll figure out a way to make a career out of it.”

As exhausting as travel can be sometimes, I do feel so blessed to get to travel the world with my husband doing exactly what we love.  It’s crazy the places around the world our cameras take us, and I can’t imagine sharing this journey with anyone else than Stephen by my side.  We often say we feel like two little aliens in our own little world.  And more and more as we travel this world, I see that.

While in the Bahamas, we shot an engagement session (pictures coming soon!), and here’s us being photographed by our client in return as we strolled the gorgeous private beach.

Keep doing what you and Stephen love to do! It shows in your work, the way you write and in all you do. God has blessed you both abundantly. Even though you aren’t thinking about it this way photography is your ministry. This is what God called you both to do. You speak his word through your blog, Instagram, Facebook and the Prosper Community and have touched so many lives. I know you’ve touched me more than once or twice. Many blessings to you and Stephen. Keep up the great work and my prayer is that God continues to bless you both.
