Fall DFW Shootout 2011: Back to School

09.21.2011

This has certainly been a labor of love. Being new to the area (now two years ago!) I wanted to create a space for photographers of all levels to get together and learn from each other.

After seeing how one was put together, I asked Dallas wedding planner and friend, Elizabeth of After Yes, if she’d partner with me to host a shootout in Dallas. With our own spin on the concept.

We hosted our first shootout last October, and this one marks our third event. And I’m so proud of how we have grown!

This time around we chose a back to school theme, and thanks to Pinterest, Elizabeth, Shelby, and I brainstormed ideas. We shot at the awesome Hickory Street Annex in Dallas and rented a school bus. YES a school bus! We showcased the talents of Sugar Bee Sweets, Kate Foley Designs, Rent My Dust Vintage Rentals, Something You Makeup Artistry, Art by Ellie, Palm Papers, and Paloma’s Nest.

I absolutely loved this vintage Schwinn bicycle from Rent My Dust!


And here’s just a sneak peek at what’s still to come!

INSPIRATION, WEDDING

Inspiration Shoot: Vintage Travel with a dash of France

06.24.2011

It always just starts with an idea. And then it grows. A team is assembled. The idea is executed.

I met Chelsea of Southern Fried Paper at a wedding networking event a several months ago. In fact, we kind of met at the end of the evening, the music was loud, I was exhausted, and we had to yell into each others ears to hear each other. Great first impression, right? Well, shortly thereafter, I met up with her and browsed her invitation portfolio. And the idea came. I pitched it to Chelsea and about three seconds later we found ourselves in planning mode. And the travel shoot was born.

We also recruited the fabulous talents of Kate of Kate Foley Designs, Heidi of Sugar Bee Sweets, Kay Castro an amazing makeup artist, and Vivien & Jon Jordan, our adorable, real-life married couple/models.

On the day of the shoot, thunderstorms were looming (in fact, we could see them across the lake, coming towards us), tornado watches in effect, and oh yeah, it HAILED. Marble-sized chunks of hail. And it rained on our shoot. TWICE.

The inspiration shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty Texas earlier this week, and I’m so pleased with how everything came together.
