Bridal Styled Shoot 2017

One of my biggest goals for this year was to coordinate a bridal styled shoot. I'm going to be honest with you, the main purpose of a styled shoot is usually to have your final gallery published somewhere- like on a blog or in a magazine. But regardless the outcome, I told our team that at the end of the day, we all would get GREAT content out of this shoot for our own portfolios no matter what- published or not. 

To the gorgeous bridal gowns, to the lofty city-vibe studio, to the hair and makeup, to the gorgeous decor and floral arrangements, to the perfect models for the job, to the fun atmosphere that was created by having so many creative and talented personalities in one room for the day, working hard to create something new... this session was definitely something I fell in love with at every stage. From planning out every little detail, countless coffee meeting hours, and tons of communication over this shoot, I couldn't be more proud of the team we had for this! 

Creating this shoot alone was such a fun process that also helped me achieve a goal of mine for this year. But then we all took the intimidating risk of sending it off to some 

I love photography because it is a way to create. Capture, yes. But every once in a while, you get the chance to actually CREATE something from simple tools in front of you, or even sometimes, out of nothing. This part of my job only makes me fall more in love with our Creator, who is very definition of creativity. 

This Bridal Styled Shoot was perfectly fit to the ideal style of every vendor involved; industrial, timeless, romantic, and clean. I hope this creates some wedding inspiration to all the bride-to-be's viewing this shoot :)

Another BIG goal of mine for this year was to have photos of mine published. My heart JUMPS FOR JOY to share that The Bridal Theory's wedding blog has published some highlights from this shoot! Click Here to see The Bridal Theory's blog post on this session.

For all the lovely lady vendors involved in this shoot- let's keep creating together. So proud of you!
