Lakeside at Welch Estate Wedding Styled Shoot | Powhatan, Virginia

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!

We were so excited to see our shoot featured in Blushing Richmond! You can read their article about our shoot here here.

Thank you to everyone involved! We also did another shoot I’ll be sharing soon!
