Tropical Birthday Party Inspired Styled Shoot
As a Tampa Bay bride, you look forward to that special day where you can wear “the dress” and feel like a princess. However, when that day has come and gone, and you still want to feel fabulous, then what do you do?
Host a “flirty 30” photo shoot of course!
We brought together some of our favorite Tampa Bay wedding pros to collaborate on this special lifestyle birthday party styled shoot dedicated to embracing life’s milestones with our Marry Me Tampa Bay Membership Director Amanda Sobel.
“The thought of getting older can be something that you resist or something that you just wake up and celebrate! Turning the big 3-0 this year, I wanted to do something that celebrated aging gracefully with stylish dresses, gorgeous hair and makeup and, of course, champagne to go with a decadent cake!” Amanda gushed.
If you follow Amanda on Instagram, @amandajsobel, you know that she lives for pineapples and pink flamingos, so they were the inspiration behind this flirty thirty photo shoot.
Wedding cake designer The Artistic Whisk created a show stopping tiered birthday cake with a flamingo centerpiece that also lit up!
The hair and makeup glam squad at Michele Renee the Studio primped Amanda with sultry curls and natural, but sexy makeup, while Lending Luxury provided the gorgeous pastel pink, tulle gown with a rhinestone bodice and short flirty coral dress, perfect for a happy hour celebration.
Tampa Bay wedding photographer Kéra Photography captured Amanda’s glowing beauty to provide these stunning images.
How would you describe your theme?
Pineapples, pink and glam! I am a true Florida girl through and through and love getting dolled up every once in awhile.
