This past September one of my sweetest friends, Arielle Peters, hosted her first ever “Arielle Peters Workshop”! She has been such an incredible mentor to me in starting my photography business so as soon as she started telling me about wanting to put on her own educational workshop I knew it would be something I would not want to miss out on! I was so right, because it was absolutely amazing! Like seriously…. she killed it! I had never been to a photography workshop so this was my first time experiencing anything like this and the whole time I was just so blown away. She put so much thought into every single detail, from the amazing educational content to the welcome gifts, to making sure we all had enough caffeine to get through each morning, and to this stunning styled shoot that you’re about to see photos of below! I was soaking up every minute, not only because I was learning so much, but also because I was in such sweet company of so many incredible women that were not only interested in growing their photography businesses, but also helping each other grow! That environment is just so rare and refreshing! I didn’t want it to end! I can’t wait for her to get to host her next one in just a few short weeks!
So let’s just talk about this styled shoot for a minute! Can I first just start by saying “ummmm wow?” This was my first styled shoot experience as well and I just couldn’t get over how absolutely stunning it was! I had so much fun getting to capture all of the details, from the neutral color palette with pops of blues, purples and burgundies, to the gorgeous bride and groom, to the greenery and florals, to the cake, oh I could go on and on it just gave me all the feels!!! These vendors knocked it out of the park! Krissy Campbell with Simply Be So Events did such an incredible job coordinating the shoot and Stephanie Abbitt just blew us all away with the design and styling! They’re so talented at what they do and that’s obvious through these photos! Enjoy my favorites from the shoot below!
