A Story book love…

{ Happy Valentine's Day }

With Valentine's this week I wanted to throw it back to one of my favorite shoots with a V-day flare...

This was featured on LaurenConrad.com last year.

I teamed up with Ilana Saul of Bookend Events and Danika of Artistry by Danika to create a fun and colorful shoot.

We collected a gorgeous array of florals in yellow, blush, pinks and white. Ranunculus, anemone, hydrangeas and dahlias, oh my! If you have a flower district in your city, it’s a great way to buy flowers at wholesale—about half of what they would cost at a florist. engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme After that, I headed toward the coast, where the real magic happened. We started the shoot off on my beach cruiser. I decorated the wicker basket with some of the flowers to add an extra pop of color and tie in the florals throughout. engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme After some cruisin’ through the Venice canals we decided to hit the beach! Our tent backdrop was created using bamboo sticks (in an X), clothespins, hair ties, and a thin silk fabric in mint. I know, I know… you might as well call me MacGyver! engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme We all loved the idea of celebrating love around the world. So we used vintage luggage, hand-written love letters, and a framed map of where the couple’s love will take them. The incredibly unique folded books are from Novel Brand. (They also do custom orders!) The sweet felt dove ornament hanging from the globe is from Lauren Conrad’s new online shop, The Little Market! It’s handmade by women in Nepal. engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme engagement pictures, los angeles wedding photographer, beach, valentines theme Alex and Chelsey were the perfect lovebirds for this shoot! They’re such a gorgeous couple and have an epic love story to boot. Check out this amazing song he wrote for her and the music video he did to win her back… Talk about a storybook sort of love! I hope you all are inspired to set the mood this year and create something special for that someone special. How are you celebrating VALentine’s Day? Signature
