I've always seen other photographers organise styled shoots and wished I could put together my own. It took me a while to build up the courage to put myself out there, but I advise anyone who's sitting on the fence to just jump right in. I wish I had done it sooner! I'm part of a group on Facebook where amazing suppliers come together to offer their services for various styled shoots, so this is where I would start.
Step one for me was finding a venue. I've never photographed at the secret gardens before so this was always a desired place for me to shoot at. I've heard so many wonderful things about the unique glass house so this was the perfect choice. After they kindly agreed I put together a mood board. I knew I wanted to go with a boho theme showcasing lace, beautiful fresh flowers and powder blue accessories with hints of gold. After securing the venue and designing the mood board I reached out and a number of amazing suppliers offered to be involved. Everyone from hair and makeup to a wedding stylist was involved.
I had the pleasure of having three beautiful people to model for the day- one bride, one groom and a bridesmaid. They all did a fantastic job and boy did they rock the pictures.
I was absolutely blown away with all the hard work each and every supplier had put in to the shoot. It was such a fab day and I cannot thank everyone enough for all the hard work they did. I can't wait to organise another one.
