Back in March, I was fortunate enough to be a teacher at The Film Photographer’s Workshop hosted by my friend Sarah. I was also given the opportunity to design and style one of the editorial shoots for our attendees. I have a BFA and am trained in design as well as photography, but at the end of the day, my strength is as a photographer. So as excited as I was to take on this challenge, I was also nervous AF. I had a very clear vision in my head of how I wanted my concept executed, and Amy Nicole Floral and Edè By Jacqueline (and the many other talented vendors who participated) really helped bring this to fruition. I remember starting to cry as we put the finishing touches on the table and feeling overwhelmed to see this story come to life. I was also very tired and sick so perhaps I was crying because I wanted to take a nap, haha. After we finished the table, Amy said something to the effect of “Could you imagine if you pitched the color palette of mustard, rust, and brown to a client? They would be like ewwww. But if you showed them this they would think it was beautiful.” So I guess the moral of the story is to always keep an open mind and step out of your comfort zone as often as possible. Head on over to Wedding Sparrow to read more about my inspiration and design!
Seriously…this crew rocked it – thank you <3 <3
