Last month I was priviledged to participate in a fabulous styled shoot at Rixey Manor out in Culpepper, VA. I had been working for months with the photographer, Sarah Houston, to get every detail perfect, and our hard work paid off when we were featured on Ruffled Blog.
The winter is usually the time when most wedding vendors being the process of submitting new images to blogs for featured content through a process called styled shoots. Everyone who participates does so at no charge in order to create beautiful images for editorials and blogs both local and nationwide. It's a great opportunity to network with other professionals that share the same passion for weddings as yourself, and it's also fun to just get to go out there and create looks that you want represented in your portfolio. For the creatives in this industry, it's an excuse to shake off the winter blues and get the juices flowing before wedding season hits hard again and sucks the life out of us.
Here are some of my ultimate favorite images from the shoot. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
