Seriously, I think styled shoots are one of my fav things to photograph ever. My creative juice is sweetened by design + pretty little details & I get to have just that when I style a shoot. I think it is so important, as photographers, to constantly be doing collaborations and styled shoots for your creative sake. Even if it is thrown together last minute, do it! Use your weekdays to plan styled shoots + collaborate with local dress companies and makeup artists to make it happen. For this shoot, we wanted to go for a retro look with Hollywood glam inspo. I am obsessed with getting ready photos so I chose to have Julia in curlers (straight from the dollar tree, people) and glam makeup + the most perfect earrings from Untamed Petals. That way the focus isn’t so much on the curlers but more on every single pretty detail. Oh & this bathroom is the most dreamy bathroom I’ve ever been in. Seriously, The Penny SLO is incredible. When doing styled shoots, I always try and go out of my comfort zone because that usually isn’t possible with weddings so for this one I focused on shooting majority of the photos in the bathroom.
That is it ladies & gents! Grab some amazing creatives & throw something amazing together! It doesn’t take a lot to make magic!
