If you follow my blog you know that I belong to a very unique group of women photographers, who come together each month to support each other, share tips and ideas, and photograph.For this month’s meet up we hosted a Southern Peach styled wedding photoshoot for the entire group. The idea was born out of the need to create & to utilize beautiful property of Ever After Barn in Dade City.
One of our TSS group members, Cassandra, handmade all the details and created an incredible set in the Southern peachy style. It was just magical & full of tasty peaches! ;) Jennifer (who’s also a TSS group member) & her husband Adam, agreed to model for us. They will be celebrating their 7 years of marriage in January and they were just a perfect couple for this shoot!
Our group has never done anything as engaged as this event before. Personally it was a challenge for me and I've learned many lessons. I honestly think that every wedding photographer should coordinate a styled wedding photoshoot, not just to build their portfolio, but also to gain the experience of creating relationships, working with wedding vendors & understanding what it really takes to create such an important event.
Since our group has gotten much bigger since the last styled photoshoot at Siesta Key beach back in January, at the Southern Peach wedding we ended up with 26 photographers! Just imagine a ‘bride’ and the ‘groom’ being followed by a group of photographers all around Ever After Barn! I am so thankful for their patience & good attitude through the entire day!
Styled photoshoots are something we, as photographers, enjoy, and without the support of our vendors they wouldn’t happen. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with these incredible businesses. They were great to work with, so if you are planning your wedding, make sure to check out these vendors!
