Romantic & Whimsical Bridal Styled Shoot in Media Pennsylvania

Why do a bridal session prior to your wedding? Because what is more fun than a romantic and whimsical bridal styled shoot. Bridal sessions are becoming increasing popular with brides and grooms. This romantic and whimsical styled bridal session was put together to show brides there are many options when it comes to bridal portraits.This bridal shoot was inspired by the beauty of Tyler Arboretum and its whimsical and romantic feel. I just love her powder blue tulle skirt from American Blossoms.

Scheduling a bridal portrait shoot with your photographer gives you the opportunity to see exactly how you’ll look on your wedding day and allows you the opportunity to make desired changes prior to the big day. You may be wondering what a bridal session actually is…..

Bridal portraits give you a chance to meet with your photographer before hand and get comfortable with one another. Brides love bridal sessions because they are relaxed and without the pressure of maintaining a timeline of a wedding. Bridal styled shoots are meant for exploring your creative side and having fun. You can show case your romantic bridal portraits at your wedding or in a personal album for your groom.  Bridal portraits at Ashlee Mintz Photography include a beautiful location, flowers, hair styling and makeup too. A bridal session is the perfect time to try on your dress, get your makeup on and hair done at the same time so you can see just how stunning you will look on photo besides on your wedding day.This session could not have been possible without all of the great vendors involved.

Happy birthday to twins Harlow and Niko! Two is definitely better than one, I had so much fun with twins Harlow and Niko. They were full of energy and have the best style ( thanks to their awesome mama). I could really see them on a cover of a magazine. Aren’t they so cute! They were perfect models and great at posing. I loved Niko’s hat and Harlows head scarf ( so chic ).

Harlow and Niko just celebrated there second birthday and we were able to use decorations from their birthday party for there photography session. I just love all of the hanging two’s they make for a perfect backdrop. I am really glad I was able to spend time photographing them.

Ashlee Mintz Photography : the boutique wedding experience

I wanted to take a second today and talk about the boutique wedding experience I aim to provide to each and every one of my valued clients.

What is a boutique wedding experience?  The boutique experience is a level of quality that you will not find at a larger studio. You will know exactly who is photographing your wedding and working every detail to customize your experience (ME!). With a boutique studio you will be guaranteed to have a personal touch on your wedding day. I take the time and effort into each individual session to make it as unique as each of my clients. This is why I keep my available sessions limited, to ensure each of my clients are getting an unforgettable experience.

My number one goal is to capture your wedding as moments that you will be able to come back to for years to come. Your wedding is special and I want the photographs I capture to be treasured by you as much as they are by me. My services include fine art prints, handcrafted image boxes and so much more.

Featured: Gold Wedding Inspiration on Swooned

I’m thrilled to share my latest fashion shoot stocked full of gold wedding inspiration. I’m honored that it was featured on the blog Swooned recently.  Inspired by a little notebook called Pretty Thoughts by Aquaria, this shoot was filled with gold gold and more gold. You can purchase your copy here.  From gold glitter to an antique wire crown helped create the glamorous and unique bridal look I had envisioned.  
A special thanks to Brianna Haley for modeling this look at The Old Mill located in Media, PA.  Isn’t she just stunning?  Gold is a great color for her 🙂
I could not have pulled off this complete look without the expertise of Makeup artist Aleksandra Ambrozy. Aleksandra created a soft romantic and natural makeup with loose curls to frame Brianna’s face
I hope you enjoy my vision and maybe this will provide some gold wedding inspiration to a bride to be out there!

Rescued on the Runway – Fashion Show for SPCA

Something you may not know about me is that I am a volunteer photographer for the Delaware County SPCA and Chester County SPCA.  I’m an animal lover, and rescuing dogs is very near and dear to my heart.

I was honored to be asked to photograph their fashion show Rescued on the Runway on March 30th, 2014 at the Kings Mills Media, PA.

The pooches were amazing models as their strutted their stuff down the runway.  Rescued on the Runway is a spring fashion show fundraiser including raffles, great food, fashion and of course these adorable pups that were adopted or available for adoption.  My own puppy Penny made me proud participating in the runway show.  My family adopted her this year from the Delaware County SPCA.

This years event was a huge success full of dog wagging and kisses!
