It’s Spotlight Tuesday, where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding vendors and share the stories behind these companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
Hiring the right professional wedding photographer & videographer is so important on your wedding day. The photographer & videographer are responsible for documenting all the wonderful events on your special day so you can enjoy them for years to come.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce this week’s vendor spotlight, Lindsay and Kellie of Live Happy Studio.
When people ask “what do you do?” how do you answer?
What did you do before you did this?
Kellie was a graphic designer and general badass before becoming a photographer over a decade ago! Lindsay was a skydiving instructor, photographer, and videographer. After jumping out of a plane around 7,000 times, she decided to keep the feet on the ground and shoot another amazing life event: weddings.
How long have you been in the wedding industry?
A decade! Man, we must be getting old!
How did you get into the wedding industry?
Good question. Who knows? When its meant to be, it’s meant to be 🙂 The job picked us, we didn’t pick the job.
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
Making people smile!!!!!!!! Being a photographer isn’t just about taking pictures, it’s about connecting with someone on one of the biggest (and most stressful) days of their lives. Being there for them, making the day easy for them, and generally making them laugh makes my day. How lucky are we to spend time with people having the time of their life and throwing a big party? Can you call that work? Not to me.
Tell us about your most memorable event so far and why it was.
Ha ha ha. No comment 🙂
What’s the best part of your job?
See question above…fave thing.
What motivates you to do this every day?
Making people happy.
What fun fact would people be surprised to learn about you?
When not shooting weddings, we are bombing down mountains on bikes! Everyone needs a bit of adrenaline every now and then. Plus, it’s pretty hilarious when Kellie falls off…when she’s stopped, not moving!!!
What is the best compliment you’ve received from your clients?
Too many to mention!!! And these compliments are just part of why we love what we do. When people are truly happy—not only with the photos but with us as people—there’s no better feeling.
How did you decide on the name of your company?
It’s a statement, a reminder: LIVE HAPPY! Every day should be an opportunity to not only make yourself smile, but others too. Spread the smiles; they’re contagious!
What is important for clients to know about your company before they book you?
We like to have fun. Let’s do this!
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
Two-week turn around time on all images! No waiting around with us.
What types of events do you specialize in?
If you need us to point a camera somewhere, we got you. Any event, place, and time. We specialize in being flexible.
What makes your business stand out from others in your category?
Good pricing for a two-person team with a massive amount of experience and the best equipment you can get. Most companies have a head shooter and a second shooter. With us you get two head shooters, a team that can read each other’s minds because we work together so often.
Tell us about your favorite type of engaged couple.
All engaged couples are awesome! I’m not sure we have a fave. Maybe the silly ones. 🙂
Why do couples hire you?
Personality and quality.
Tell us more about your most popular packages.
8 hrs, 2 photographers, copyright release, USB of images, online gallery, 2-week turn around, wedding album, thank you cards. Contact us for any custom package, or check out our options online starting at $1500.
Why do you think your business is successful?
If you love what you do, you’ll always be successful in it.
Live Happy Studio shares some helpful information for engaged couples…..
What are the most common questions you get asked by brides and/or grooms?
Timelines and how many hours of coverage they need.
What do you think are the biggest misconceptions that people have about your vendor category?
You can’t get good photography without spending a lot of money. Don’t worry, you can.
Name three unique venues that you enjoy working at and why.
Mission Inn – This place has so many options for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. There are even more great spots for portraits, so as a photographer, it’s a dream to walk around and have so much variety! It’s also a nice location, close to Orlando but out of the craziness of the city, and has an onsite hotel so everyone can have drinks and not need to drive home 🙂 Plus the staff there are awesome!
Orlando Science Center – Who wouldn’t want a T-Rex in their wedding images? Okay, some people, but others LOVE it, and so do we. We think the Science Center is one of the most FUN wedding venues. Again, it offers indoor and outdoor options, and a super cool view of the city, great for sunset shots up in the observatory.
Sanford Zoo – Well, you said a unique venue and this one certainly is! Your wedding images certainly won’t look the same as anyone else’s! And if you don’t like the T-Rex in the background, you could always just have a giraffe instead 🙂 Animal lovers should check this place out.
What some of their previous couples had to say….
“Live Happy Studio made us happy and at ease from day one! They allowed us to incorporate personal items into our engagement photos and encouraged us to relax, have fun, and even tell them stories about us! They act like a true blue friend! On our wedding day, as soon as they popped up, they were there with big smiles on their faces which were met with even bigger smiles on our own faces! They work effortlessly in the background to capture those unique shots of a minute detail or funny expression on your family member’s face that you were not even aware of! They love hearing your ideas and incorporating them in creative ways. It was a blast working with Live Happy Studio and reliving our wedding through their amazing photos was like watching a movie of the event. We will cherish their photos for the rest of our lives!” – Hannah & Rowlan (OSC)
“I am not sure I will ever fully be able to put into words how important Live Happy Studio was in making our wedding day extra special. I was VERY particular about the photographers for our wedding, as I did not want anything super posed or cookie cutter. Kellie and Lindsay went above any expectations I had, capturing everything from our engagement photo session up to our wedding day. Both are extremely talented at what they do and their energizing personalities will help to calm any jitters you have in front of the camera. Every single picture they took of our wedding was incredibly flawless and we had our pictures in less than two weeks (completely unheard of)! Splurge on your photographers and get the big package! You can’t beat the price for the quality of work you get, and if you are anything like us, you will feel like these girls are more than your photographers after your event, but friends you have known forever!” – Tanya & Justin (Taveres Pavillion)
“Live Happy Studio was one of the group of vendors from our wedding that I’ve dubbed the Dream Vendors. The photos we ended up with are absolutely priceless!!! I don’t know how they do it, but Live Happy Studio captures those magical moments that you want to remember forever, even those moments that pass in the blink of an eye. They’re so consummate at what they do, they’re able to beautifully capture them! Gorgeous work, they are true artists! Live Happy Studio made my dream of having the greatest wedding photos ever come true!!! I can’t say enough about how awesome they are!” – Adele & Matt
