A Cute Couple + a Giant Red Heart

How sweet is this whimsical Valentine’s Day shoot with a giant heart!? It was dreamed up and photographed by Laura Leslie. She made the heart with wood and pieced it together and covered it. Kalia + Brendan are the adorable couple. So sweet!

  6. […] About a Giant red heart. It was the inspiration for this love shoot. I contacted my friend and carpenter extraordinaire and asked him if he could build me a giant 8 ft heart. The heart was delivered in 2 pieces of wood and my family helped me seem it together and fabric it. No easy task! I shopped for weeks looking for items for the shoot! The day came, and I was packed up, with a giant 8 ft heart strapped to the back of my mom’s truck with the flashers on driving through Jupiter. I’m sure that was a sightI watched as my vision came to life that day with the adorable Kalia and Brendan and my beloved heart. 6 weeks of planning later and all ready for Valentine’s day, these images were ready to share. And shared they were by my fav wedding blog Green Wedding Shoes!! […]
