I honestly cannot believe that I’ve waited so long to share these photos with you! I worked towards this day for almost a year and it took me four months to blog it. Oops! Better late than never, right? 😉
Over the past year, I’ve participated in my fair share of styled shoots. Five to be precise. Planning my own styled shoot was something I had been dreaming of doing for so long but I really lacked the confidence in myself to even attempt it. But last fall, I participated in three styled shoots. The Henry’s and Karime Photography really helped give me the confidence I needed to pursue this dream and I can’t thank them enough! After participating in my first styled shoots, networking with awesome vendors at the shoots (plus at Tuesday’s Together networking group!), and lots and lots of planning … here we are.
I’ve known Phil & Gwen for a couple of years now and whenever I sit down and think about who my ideal wedding day couple is, I automatically think of them! They’re super creative people, but so laid-back and friendly. When I think of them, I think of tattoos, creativity, bold color, boho flair and an outdoor, nature-focused venue (paying tribute to their vegan lifestyle). I knew that my first styled shoot needed to focus on their love and on their fun, hip style!
I was so blessed to work with some fantastic & local vendors! They really helped me bring my vision to life and the success of this shoot is entirely due to them and their abilities! HUGE SHOUTOUT to you guys!
