Timeless and Minimal Bridal Session on the Florida Coast
There is something mysterious about these incredibly emotive and simple images that stirs something deep within us. We are longtime fans of Heather Payne as her artistry and brand is very minimal and elevated in aesthetic and style - elements which are right up our Sparrow alley. Her mentor session with Edelle Photography feels almost like a bridal portrait session straight out of Greece, but instead is located in beautiful Florida. Feast your eyes, loves...
From Heather Payne Photography: “When working on these mentorships, my biggest goal is to create a custom workshop experience for each individual to meet them in their current needs. I’m so grateful to share my tips in creating fine art imagery and help a fellow photographer discover their unique voice. Over a 2-day time period, we dive deep into every level of the business and end with a custom photo-shoot designed to push the artist to the next level with their newly refined eye.
This was a favorite shoot designed by Lacy Geary with stunning Lee Grebenau gowns from Spina Bride in NYC. The vision for the shoot began with the architectural setting of Rosemary & Aly’s Beach in Florida. The natural lines in the buildings, shore line and dresses draws your eye into each photo and tells a beautiful calming story. It was so joyful and liberating to see the veil be lifted from my student, Dani’s, eyes as she discovered her own voice from within.”
From my student, Dani of Edelle Photography: “Heather Payne’s one-to-one mentorship was the true turning point for my business.
Before my time with Heather, I was in a creative plateau and lost my spark and excitement for my favorite art form! I wasn’t passionate anymore and felt like throwing in the towel on this dream.
After our two days together, I learned way more than I ever imagined. Heather took her time to get to know me and my business’ needs and created this custom shoot to elevate my work and teach me the process of slowing down and creating intentional art using lines, patterns, shadows and backgrounds. She truly wants you to experience freedom and growth and leaves nothing behind when it comes to what it means to be a creative business owner.”
