What is a Styled Shoot?


Do you ever wonder where all those gorgeous photos come from on Pinterest?

Styled Shoots are a way for artists and vendors to come together to create a elevated cohesive theme that gives you all the feels.

I personally love to be inspired by my surroundings and the dessert has such majestic qualities.

We mixed traditional gowns with modern hair and makeup, laid out layers and layers of chiffon against the edgy sandstone and rocks.

The sun beamed down allowing the makeup to look earthy and lived in, almost intentional.

We do these styled shoots to give future brides a glimpse into what they could create for their wedding.

How did you choose your hair and makeup look? Or the theme to your wedding? Do you find styled shoots helpful when searching for ideas?
