Maybe I'm calling myself out as an under-a-rock-hider.... but as of the last few months I have become more and more aware of the glory that is - styled shoot collaborating! I assume Styled Shoots have been popular longer than I've been aware of them lol but lately with bolting myself back into the industry - I have seen them explode! And I sooo see why! I totally love the idea of connecting with other creatives in the area! Bettering ourselves, our crafts, our businesses, getting connected with each other, sharing each other's work, and building relationships with others in the vast array of creative fields!At the start of 2016 I had decided that in my business this year I would try my hand at a few of these Styled Shoots -slash- Collaboration Efforts... I mean, why not! I can always use new connections, and new images! When the chance presented itself it was a bit last minute in terms of planning a collaboration. While it was a stretch to put something like this together super fast (without a planner mind you), I knew I wanted to get it done with a little time to edit my favorites before the Bridal Show that I will have a table at coming up soon! Huge Props to EVERYONE involved, because I did not pull this off on my own by any means! Connections, Referrals, Suggestions, Ideas... It was a group effort for sure.
So on that note: Here are your collaborators!!

... And before I go on to share all of the images that I had a TERRIBLE time narrowing down.. I also have to say - a married couple was a great thing... I'm SO thankful for my friends Michelle and Anthony for being excited about this opportunity! They rocked this shoot.... They certainly like each other! ;) They weren't afraid to let that show for the camera! And we were all so thankful because it provided for some awesome moments captured!! They were very real and romantic, and as cliche as it might sound - they authentically seemed to just get lost in their own little world!
I'm so excited to share these with all of you!
Told you I had a hard time narrowing it down!
<3 Until Next time,
