I got the chance to participate in my FIRST styled shoot that was put on by another group of creatives. A styled shoot is essentially a styled fake-wedding. The couples are usually real life couples who play dress up for several different photographers. Clothing, flowers, props, everything is brought in to allow different wedding vendors a chance to showcase their work. This gives them the opportunity to show off something they may have wanted to try and showcase but haven’t had the chance to on a real wedding day. It also allows photographers a chance to shoot something unique, work with other photographers, and try new things that they may not be comfortable with on a wedding day.
I found out about the Styled HWY 2 shoot just 2 days before hand and HAD to sign up. The shoot was taking place in Wrightwood, just 30 minutes or so away from the town I went to high school and where my parents still live. I also happened to be going for a visit at the same time so me finding the shoot just felt like kismet.
