I'm Dawn! A Mom, photographer, and blogger living a small town and coastal life in Virginia. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you stay awhile, browse my latest work, read the stories of my awesome clients and catch up on my latest adventures.
It’s amazing what happens when a team of creatives come together! I met some of the ladies involved in this shoot a few months ago at an industry event. Shortly after, they contacted me about doing a styled shoot. I was stoked to be a part of it! What I love about styled shoots is that I am able to take my time, be creative, and try new things.
Styled shoots are a lot of work! We did have some challenges. I like to keep it real around here so I’ll talk about the challenges I faced. The main one being the weather. Leave it to good ole Virginia to have a tropical system in May and rain for 5 days straight! This day it rained all day. Like a monsoon. Luckily the heavy rain stopped when I arrived and only drizzled throughout but everything was muddy and wet. It was very cloudy and getting dark outside so I was racing against the clock while trying to shoot as much as possible.
The models, Kinslee and Logan are not a real couple and just met each other at the shoot. I was a little nervous about being able to make them look like a couple who just got married. They worked perfectly together! They were such troopers and put up with all our crazy ideas.
The vendor team was amazing and so talented! I loved that they were present during the shoot offering suggestions and making the models laugh. We really did have a good time despite all the rain and darkness. We all worked really well together and make a good team!
Thank you to everyone involved! We also did another shoot I’ll be sharing soon!
