"Go big or go home!" is a popular saying in my family. When it came to my first styled shoot, that is exactly what I did!
Photographers, venues, and wedding vendors of all sorts use styled shoots to explore creative ideas, build working relationships with other vendors and to build their portfolios. I've loved the style of Pear Tree Estate since they opened. I figured as a new business, it may be awhile before I had the chance to be a part of an event there. Luckily earlier this year, Heather and Kristin at Sweet Darling Weddings tossed my name into contention for an amazing opportunity to design for one of their styled tastings. Annie, Lauren, and their staff go above and beyond for their clients. They frequently hold tasting events for couples and their families to help select their menu. To enhance the experience, they have organized styled shoots on the same day as the tastings. Bringing together some of the best wedding vendors in the area, no detail goes untouched. Their clients walk into a fully decorated reception space complete with custom touches top to bottom.
When Annie presented me with the color scheme, linens and inspiration photos for the shoot, I was instantly inspired and excited. I jump at every chance I get to design with color. The deep pinks and corals paired with the sleek acrylic made for a high impact, modern look that dazzled the eye in every direction.
I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with on this shoot! It was an amazing day from the moment I arrived to tear down twelve hours later.
