Inspiration Shoot: Vintage Travel with a dash of France


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.

Winter Shootout: The Details


It’s almost Spring, so I thought I’d share some of the fabulous details from the Winter Shootout we hosted at the end of February. These shootouts are networking and portfolio building opportunities for photographers of all levels. It’s a great way to meet some new friends (since we photographers are often sitting in front of our computers!) and practice shooting.

The Dallas Winter Shootout was awesome! Elizabeth of After Yes and Heidi of Sugar Bee Sweets were my partners in crime, helping get all the details together. Heidi opened the doors of the Shoppes at Brownstone in Arlington for us to set up shop for the day, and it went off without a hitch. We had amazing models for the day including Corbin & Dave Baxter of Soulbox Productions, Ebony Peoples and her hubby Jovan of Ebony Peoples Events and Design, and the fabulous Prianna who we got hooked up with through Chelsea of Southern Fried Paper. See how a little collaboration can go a long way?! I’ll be posting the people photos next week!

But for now, the details! One of my favorite things to photograph (besides people) is the details. I love to capture all the little things that brides (and their planners!) put together for their wedding day. During the shootouts, we make a point to have some fun details so our participants can practice.
