Valentines Styled Shoot | Laurel Hall | Wedding Inspiration | Meeka + Kyle

Fun Colorful Joyful Indiana Wedding Photographer - Indianapolis - Alison Mae Photography_6931.jpg

On Friday I had the opportunity to participate in a styled wedding shoot hosted by my friend, Kaylee of Kaylee Creighton Styled. Kaylee is always planning ahead and had this shoot filled to the brim with Valentines inspired touches. It was absolutely breathtaking!

While this wasn’t a real wedding, it certainly had the fireworks of the real thing! Meeka + Kyle are a real life couple who’s chemistry was just off the charts! I loved photographing both of them, but more than anything I loved seeing the tiny shared moments of laughter between them. This may have been a styled shoot, but their shared love is very real and so very inspiring!

Grace Stone Designs provided a pair of gorgeous rustic framed vows for the shoot and I couldn’t stop thinking about how special they would be hanging on the walls of a newly married couples’ home. They’d even make a perfect anniversary gift!

The amazing Laurel Hall is always a dream location due in part to it’s stunning natural indoor light, storybook stairwell and incredible staff. It was the perfect setting for this romantic shoot. For those of you that remember my styled gothic shoot from last fall, this is the same location. I love finding ways to use the space in different ways each time I visit! I’m always up for a challenge!

The Bridal Superstore provided one of the most stunning gowns I have ever seen! I mean, would you look at that detail?

One of my favorite parts of this styled shoot was the amazing vendors who stepped in to make this session a reality. The Indianapolis wedding photography scene is just so lucky to have such wonderful partners! Julie of Julie's Flowers of Geist, LLC brought in the most beautiful florals - complete with my favorite, white anemones! Julie even made a boutonnière for our groom, Kyle, right on the spot! And don’t even get me started on that stunning flower crown!

Our other vendors were just as amazing. Allison of Allison Linnae Hair and Moriah Justin (makeup) did an impeccable job with our already stunning models. Between the red lips that put Taylor Swift herself to shame and that beautifully whimsical braid - these two are truly a dream team for wedding day beauty!

Of course, all of this loveliness couldn’t have happened with out the time and talent of Kaylee of Kaylee Creighton Styled. She is a wedding photographer as well and is a total sweetheart! Because of this shoot, I was able to connect with so many talented creatives in the Indianapolis area and we all had a blast! A huge thanks to Kaylee for making it possible!
