It started with an idea. Something that would really put me out there and make me stand out among any other photographer, at least that’s what I thought it would do. I’ve been wanting to do a styled shoot for a very long time, but never really had the means to do so. I hadn’t known any other vendors, nobody to really point me in the right direction, and not even models to make the shoot happen. And then I met the Classy Styles crew.
I had been advertising casting calls for models for my vintage picnic shoot. It was just everything that I wanted to do. EXACTLY my style. But surprisingly, nobody jumped on the opportunity. I wasn’t even going to charge these people, I just wanted them to look awesome and rock my camera like a dang wagon wheel. And then I got a message from a past client of mine. They were actually my very first clients in South Carolina when I moved down here and I was ECSTATIC. I remember this couple being so photogenic and wonderful to work with. Their names are Chris & Jessica and they are AMAZING in front of my camera….or any camera for that matter.
So, we set a date and this date was working FABULOUSLY because the Sunday after we had scheduled for the shoot was Chris & Jessica’s one year anniversary. So this shoot was also very special to them as well. It took us forever to find a location (actually, we didn’t decide on anything until a day or two before the shoot! lol). It was just hard to find something so intimate and something that would fit the style of this shoot. I then asked my dear friend April (of Classy Styles) if she and her crew would help me out on hair and makeup. They agreed and by God….DID THEY DELIVER!!!
This shoot was honestly, the best shoot, I’ve ever done, in my eyes. I loved every single shot that I took and I couldn’t have asked for a better day, weather, people, or anything for that matter. Everything was perfect. Chris & Jessica were perfect. Did I mention how perfect everything was? Yeah……I’m just so excited to share everything with you.
This styled shoot, as you can see, was absolutely amazing. The sun came out when it was suppose to and wasn’t as harsh as I anticipated. It was all just perfect. Classy Styles made Jessica look like a freakin rockstar and took the look of things to a whole new level. Can you believe all of the props that were used for this came from Jessica?? She brought EVERYTHING!! I was just in awe of how amazing and how creative they are. I am definitely looking forward to working with this adoring couple again in the future…most definitely!
Now….this bring me to another point. I noticed that I work best with styled shoots and engagements here lately. And I want to do more! I had one….now I wanna do it all of the time! lol. So…..whoever comes up with the next best idea for a styled shoot and I like it (and as long as it will go great with my style of shooting), I will do it AND you can have the session for 50% off! WHOOPWHOOP! I’m all about anything vintage, cute, trendy, with bright colors, neutrals, with all natural lighting. I can’t wait to hear what ideas you guys might have! 🙂
Until next time guys….
