I just had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with the incredibly talented Alyssa Lentz!
At first I was just going to have her shoot my outfit for 4th of July, but it ended up being a what I like to call a “friendship shoot” with one of my best friends Sami.
It was a fabulous evening of laughter and hanging out with Sami.
Every year on the 4th I throw a big bash to celebrate one of my favorite holidays. I decided to splurge and treat myself to a new 4th of July dress. I immediately fell in love with this red tasseled dress from Francesca’s.
I paired it with an old navy cabi sweater, my gold platform Steve Maddens (pictured a few photos above) and my newest piece of Stella & Dot jewelry. Y’all, I have become so obsessed with the jewelry my sister sells, it’s SO cute. Oh and of course a fantastic flower crown provided by my lovely photographer!
Sami is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. She has the prettiest smile and just like the One Direction song, she doesn’t know she’s beautiful.
She looked just like a fairy with her light blue cabi pieces layered on top of each other, and it looks like she was born to wear flower crowns everyday of her life.
Here’s another picture of her, just because.
Here’s my favorite picture of the entire shoot. Sami and I agreed that this photo summarizes out friendship perfectly, I’m the more adventurous & outgoing one while she’s much more reserved and modest. Also, walking on a tree in 2.5 inch platforms is NOT as easy as it looks.
I absolutely love working with local photographers and featuring their talent on my blog. Thank you so much Alyssa for the gorgeous photos you took, they are truly works of art!
Alyssa is incredibly talented and if you’re looking for someone to shoot your wedding, family pictures, engagement photos, or even a friendship shoot like Sami and I did you really need to hit her up. Check out her facebook page here or her website here!
Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July! I know I did!
