A few weeks back I had the opportunity to experience my first styled shoot. For those of you who do not know, a styled shoot is when a group of vendors get together and simulate a wedding or other event. It helps everyone promote their business and is a good source for networking.
The venue, Paraiso Maravilla, was located in the galleria area in Houston Texas. Upon arrival I could feel my nerves begin to get on edge. It is funny how much more confident I am when April is around! Regardless, I took a deep breath and found the group of photographers I was stationed with. There were 5 different stations for pictures at this particular event. Two stations were mock weddings, one quinceanera, one solo bride for bridals, and an engaged couple.
It was so much fun! As I visited each station my confidence levels began to rise. I originally stuck with our normal poses, then got a little inspired and started getting a little artistic. The models were beyond polite and cooperative. Willing to be adventurous as I showed them how the pictures were turning out on my LED screen. At one point I remember there were two photographers sprawled out on the ground taking pictures of one of the models, I was one of them lol!
My first styled shoot experience was great! I had a blast meeting new people in the same industry that share a passion for what I do. It was also great for me to be able to branch out for a photo shoot and build a little confidence in my craft. A special thanks to all those that took the time to put the event together and looking forward to another opportunity to work with you.
