Tropical Oasis

For those that aren’t in the wedding industry, let me tell you a little bit about stylized shoots.  Every-so-often, vendors team up for these “dream” sessions where each pitches in with their expertise to create their own (fantastically) creative wedding.  Without a couple’s budgetary boundaries or mother’s of the bride breathing down their necks, these photo shoots can yield some of the most unique themes… often starting trends themselves!  Well, since you know we like to be on top of the trends here at The Frosted Petticoat, naturally we love stylized shoots.  And today’s is the stuff Hawaiian-chevron dreams are …

A Smashing Good (Cake) Time!

Seems like these photographers have discovered my weakness for chubby babies!  We’ve got another cutie doozy for you today.  Professional photographer Liz decided to document her own little munchkin Haley’s milestone first birthday with this gorgeously styled “cake smash”.  There’s a cake, a camera, and an adorable baby… what else could you ask for?!  Enjoy this simple moment of pure elation…       Special thank you to Liz & Haley for sharing their little slice of heaven!   Photography:  Liz Anne Photography

Detail Spotlight – Bridal Portraits

For those of us who have already been brides, we know that taking bridal portraits on your wedding day wasn’t as glamorous as it looks.  Between getting your shoes on to the constant inundation of wedding guests crashing the bridal suite, there’s usually very little time to sneak in those pesky must-have photos.  So, how do you get the perfect glamor shots without looking stressed?  Plan them out! Haley did just that on her wedding day.  With a clear vision of a “southern charm” wedding, this gorgeous bride made sure her bridal portraits would include meaningful touches that were on …

Nightmare in Candyland

If you know anything about The Frosted Petticoat staff, it’s that we love candy and whimsy.  Add Katy Perry-inspiration to the mix and we’re in hog heaven!  That is why we are smitten with Verve Studio’s Candyland themed bridal shoot.  In particular we love how this lovely day seems to go a bit haywire as the festivities commence.  With a little bit of hipster, a lot of sugar, and smidgen of the twisted welcome to this sweet-meets-hard candy fantasy wedding…           Photography:  Verve Studio Event Design:  The Event Divas Hair:  Sixth Street Station Stationary:  Footstone Ink …
