Gainesville, GA //Kelly + Colton Styled Shoot

Gainesville, GA

GUYS, I am so incredibly excited to share this session with you! Why? Because this was the FIRST styled shoot + workshop that I've ever been a part of setting up! Back in May, I got the idea to do a styled shoot filled with Macramae, persian rugs, and beautiful flowers. I was talking about it to my photographer friend, Nicole Veldman, and she jumped on board with me! I was relieved, because trying to set this whole thing up alone was a bit daunting! As we started planning, we thought, "why not open up the shoot to other photographers who want to learn?" We both have had people reach out to us wanting to learn, but we just didn't have opportunity for that at the time. So, this was perfect (and also terrifying)!

So we did it. We got a group of AMAZING vendors to be a part of the day, had a group of about 18 other amazing photographers attend. The week leading up to the shoot, I was a mess. Not only was I nervous, but it was one of those weeks where anything that could go wrong DID go wrong. But we pulled it off  and it was more amazing than I could've hoped for.

Here are some of my favorite images of the day with my wonderful models, Kelly + Colton.

A HUGE thank you to all the amazing vendors that helped make this day possible!
