It’s Spotlight Day! Where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding vendors and the stories behind their companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
Hiring the right wedding vendors is so important on your wedding day. The vendors help create the backdrop of every moment, every picture and every memory. It gives us great pleasure to introduce this week’s venue spotlight, Kellie Warren of Live Happy Studio.
How long would you say you’ve been doing what you do today?
Phew, a long time! We have been in the wedding business for over 12 years. It’s definitely not our first rodeo. We love it!
What motivates you to do this every day?
Couples motivate us to do this every day. They are so happy when they receive their wedding images – there is nothing like it! Plus, everyone we work with on their wedding day’s are amazingly happy! It puts everyone in a good mood.
What fun-fact would people be surprised to learn about you?
Kellie: Love sprinkles, mountain bikes, and adventuring.
Lindsay: Loves chocolate, adventuring and before she shot weddings, she was a skydiving photographer and did over 7,000 jumps!
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
We feel like the most unique service we offer is our 2 week turn around time on all edited images. We think it’s important to get the images back to the couple when their excitement is at it’s highest. You’ve just gotten back from your honeymoon and you’ve got all of your images in the mail!
What makes Live Happy Studio stand out from others in your category?
I think our personalities make us stand out in our category. Not only do we take pretty pictures, we do that too, but more importantly we put our clients at ease on their big day so we can get real smiles.
Tell us about your ideal client.
Our ideal client is a couple who wants to have a good time, is laid back, and a little quirky!
What current trends have you seen at weddings that you personally like the most?
We are currently in love with the navy blue suits and brown shoes for guys! And we are loving that brides are incorporating more color accents to their white dresses!
What do you think are the biggest misconceptions that people have about your vendor category?
I think one of the biggest misconceptions of our category (photography) is that you can’t get quality wedding photography at an affordable price. We feel like everyone deserves quality wedding photos, even if you’re eloping.
Tell us three venues you enjoy working at and why.
Orlando Science Center, Mission Inn, and Harmony Gardens are some of our favorite venues. Each one has special things about it that we really enjoy.
The Orlando Science Center is always fun and quirky because you can have your reception surrounded by dinosaurs.
Mission Inn Resort is always nice because of the amazing time we always have riding around in a golf cart to all the beautiful portrait spots with the couple.
Harmony Gardens because it’s a beautiful outdoor garden space that has a great feel without needing to decorate it too much.
Here is what some previous couples had to say…
“We could not be happier to have had Kellie and Lindsay as our wedding photographers. They were 100% communicative and professional from the start, fairly priced, and offered insight where we needed it. As two people who don’t like being in the spotlight, my husband and I felt completely ourselves with Kellie and Lindsay, which of course resulted in pictures where we LOOKED like ourselves on our wedding day—happy, excited, and loving every moment! They had great suggestions on the spot for photos around the venue and knew the location well (Orlando Science Center). The turn-around time on our photos was FANTASTIC and we were looking at our pictures within two weeks! You can tell they love their job and are enjoying the moments with you. If we ever need professional photography again in the future, I know we’ll be reaching back to them. Thank you so much, guys!” – Alexa B., Orlando Science Center
“If you’re searching for a wedding photographer in the central Florida area, please stop right now and book with Kellie and Lindsay from Live Happy Studio. They are true professionals, who really helped us find special moments on our wedding day to capture the most meaningful and memorable photos.
Not to mention, on the day of our wedding, a sub-tropical storm was rolling in over Florida and our venue.. and of course, our ceremony was outside. Lindsay and Kellie kept an extremely close eye on the weather and encouraged us to go for it versus moving inside when a pocket of dry air appeared to be heading our way.
I’ll always be grateful to them for how invested they were in ensuring we had the perfect day, and in helping me make the right decisions. Despite the pressure to get our ceremony to align with clear skies, every single photo came back beautiful. They seem to be able to handle anything thrown at them!
Thoughtful, efficient, calm (so helpful for me – a nightmare of nerves the day of!) and kind…there’s no doubt in my mind you will love them too.” – Katheleen H., Mission Inn Resort
“Lindsay and Kellie are rock star photographers and awesome people! Working in the event industry, I come in contact with many photographers but Live Happy is always a joy to work with! So much so that I even hired them to shoot my own wedding because I trust their vision and talents completely! They are so accommodating and will always go out of their way to give you the best photos possible while keeping you at ease the whole time. You will not regret booking them! :)” – Mikaela C., Venue 142
