I love styled shoots. They are an opportunity for me to experiment with my photography and see if something works or if it doesn't. I can then use these techniques and styles in future weddings knowing that they work and look badass. They take the pressure off me as a photographer and I can really hone in this art that's called wedding photography.
"But wait" I hear you ask, "what is a styled shoot?" Well, I'm glad you asked. A styled shoot is where different wedding vendors (florists, dress designers, venues, photographers etc) collaborate with models to create stunning portraits that everyone can then use for marketing and it is also a great opportunity to network and promote each others fantastic work. It also helps couples who are on the look out for wedding vendors so that they can see the quality of the service that they will get if they hire them.
