January 2018 Styled Shoot

YOU GUYS. I'm so excited to finally share these!! This was my very first styled wedding shoot ever and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I had been wanting to do one of these for a while because it's my dream to shoot weddings regularly and having just moved to a new state I really wanted to build connections in the industry. Julia (from KC Hopper Invites) contacted me at the perfect time back in November so we decided to start planning this together right away! She makes beautiful invitations and stationery in addition to custom laser cut wood pieces. The menu shown in the second photo below is one of my favorites! 

We found an amazing florist, cake shop, and event decor specialist to collaborate with us and they worked together to create not just one, but TWO beautiful table set ups. I LOVED photographing all the little details. We held our shoot at the University Club of Pasadena and I still can't get over how great they are. Kelli, the director of catering, and all of the other employees were so kind to us and even fed us before we left (5 stars from me).  

Our models Miles and Aimee, are a real married couple and of course they were adorable and fun to work with. The gown Aimee is wearing was made by a local dress designer and her hair and makeup was done by the talented Carla Chacon. We also had a videographer there as well, so stay tuned for the video coming soon!  

Below are photos are from one of the two different themes we created, but I will be posting photos from the second one on my Instagram soon! Check out the list of vendors at the end of this post to see everyone involved.

Huge thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this shoot such a success!
