Category: Styled Shoots

Hi friends!

It was almost 6 years ago (whoa) when I started planning styled shoots alongside new vendor friends to try to get my name out in the wedding industry.

Since then, we’ve had editorials featured on many blogs & in magazines. I’ll list a few of my favorites for you to see!

Love of My Life, featured on Green Wedding Shoes

A Storied Love, featured in Southern Weddings V9

Tuscan Skies, featured in The Celebration Society

When Natalie of 4 Corners Photography asked me about speaking at a workshop for those who are interested in learning how to successfully plan a styled shoot, I was so excited. This is such a needed discussion, especially for new vendors and planners.

Here is a link where you can find more information. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hi friends! I am still pretty overwhelmed at the opportunity I was given to design an editorial “Storied Love” in Southern Wedding’s V9. I mean, that was a dream, right? When our sweet bride graced this year’s cover, I was even more blown away. Thankful doesn’t describe it!

I’m posting the magazine spreads below, but I’ll post more of my favorite images in another post soon. Special thanks to Emily and Lisa at Southern Weddings, and to my talented friends Davy and Lydia Whitener.

Wow! One of my favorite projects this year by far was working with Simply Sarah Photography to plan a workshop at The Rockwood Lodge at Old Edwards Inn And Spa. Just over two hours from Atlanta, the North Carolina mountains are the perfect destination for a wedding.

It was so fun to work alongside Sarah and explain a little more about styling to the attendees. We started with a boudoir shoot in the morning, and in the afternoon, the attendees shot a ceremony + reception set up, as well as our (adorable) couple.

I have a slight obsession with 30A. The sweet little towns of Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary, and Alys Beach are really beautifully done – each one has its own feel and design, all perfect for destination weddings! I will follow weddings anywhere – but especially here.

This inspiration shoot in particular follows the sweet storyline of a couple’s private getaway to Alys Beach to celebrate their one year anniversary with a vow renewal.

Thank you so much to Simply Sarah Photography for these beautiful photos and to Style Me Pretty for the feature. Check out the full feature on Style Me Pretty here.
