This has been a very exciting couple of weeks between the recent wedding I coordinated at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center as well as... wait for it... the publication of my FIRST EVER styled shoot!
When I first dove into the realm of event coordinating, I honestly was not very familiar with the concept of styled shoots or their purpose. It was a term that I had heard used before between event professionals but I had never taken part in one from a planning perspective.
Being a planner and event designer, I typically have all sorts of creative ideas bouncing around in my head at any given time. The way I think of styled shoots now (after having participated in three so far this year) is as a way to take fun design concepts and partner with a team of amazing professionals to bring that concept to life! It is an excellent way to connect with other vendors for future partnerships as well as to put your design chops to the test from a publication standpoint!
I had the pleasure of connecting with Ruzin Cunningham Photography through the Rising Tide Society. Ruzin was seeking a coordinator to partner with her to help organize the day, locate vendors, and bring her vision to life. She was head over heels with the idea of doing a shoot based on Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year - Greenery! That, paired with her desire to shoot in front of a gorgeous brick wall, was the foundation for her shoot's design.
It was truly amazing connecting with all of the fantastic creative professionals that hopped aboard our band wagon! Plus, I got to love on two of my wedding clients by using them as models for the shoot! What could be better?
See below for the publication link, photos, and a complete list of the fabulous vendors that helped push this venture across the finish line!
