Featured Business | Lovely Tide Boutique Print Shop
Renee Hollingshead owner of the Lovely Tide Boutique Print Shop, is a destination wedding and anniversary photographer based out of the Washington DC area. Since 2013, she has photographed weddings, anniversaries, and editorials in 10 different countries and all throughout the U.S. She recently launched a fine-art print shop, Lovely Tide, with curated images from her travels around the world. Renee’s shop Lovely Tide is such a great reminder to print and decorate your home with colorful, dreamy, and inspiring images. I love how Renee prints extreme details, pops of color, and unique compositions that really create a statement piece. Whether a 10×10 canvas or 30×30 print matted and framed, there are so many options when it comes to art for your home!
When my husband and I bought our first home, we spent countless of hours browsing home decor stores trying to find the perfect artwork that would fill our walls. We had a collection of pictures, paintings, and framed posters that mean anything other than it was pretty. He encouraged me to print my images and fill our home with those photographs.
Knowing our struggle to find the right images for our home, I thought it’d be fun to share my travel images with others. I was taking tons of images all over the world, but there’s just no way that each and every image could possibly fill our home. So just one year ago, Lovely Tide was born and I’m so excited to share my love of travel with everyone!
I simply capture moments as I see them. Whether its a quaint coffee shop in the middle of a busy square or the waves calmly crashing against the shore. I wait for simple, picturesque moments, texture, and movement. These elements inspire me.
Are you inspired by any specific location or memory? What is your inspiration?
Inspiration for my print shop is simple. I’m motivated by travel and those quiet moments you want to bottle up and bring back home with you. While most of my focus is beautiful coastal locations, I also love to share pretty little details of small towns.
It’s definitely hard to pick just one favorite. So I’d have to say the Italy Collection is my absolute favorite. The Amalfi Coast is one of my favorite places I have ever visited and reliving that trip over and over through these prints is so rewarding! I love the vibrant colors of the coast, they are the perfect pop of color for any home.
I think it’s so important to get your pictures off your phones and computers and bring some life into your home or office. They are subtle reminders of favorite memories, special people, and incredible places you’ve been. And for me, sharing a bit of the world with my clients is just as special. Capturing their favorite things and places, seeing their homes come to life, and creating artwork for their homes is so rewarding.
Where can we find these beauties.
