This past Sunday, I coordinated my first ever styled shoot ALL ON MY OWN!!! So disclaimer, if you don't know what a styled shoot is, it is basically a staged wedding shoot. You get a bunch of amazing vendors together to collaborate and you make magic together!

Styled shoots are amazing especially around this slow photography season when clients are more likely not to book as much as usual because it's so cold outside! So anyway, styled shoots allow us photographers and vendors to basically hold a "practice wedding" to do together and it allows us to practice our skills in a very minimal non-stressful atmosphere. For me as a photographer, it allows me to practice new poses that I have been wanting to test out or shoot with new gear.

My favorite part of this whole process was planning up a wedding to the colors I wanted, I got to pick the suit and dress and EVERYTHING! I basically got to plan my dream wedding. In case you didn't know, I have a lot of dream wedding ideas in my head so I will definitely be doing this again lol
