Hey Guys,

I get asked a lot of questions about styled photo shoots so I decided to provide you with some insight about the process by providing more details about a few of our published shoots.

First, be prepared to work hard and invest some financial resources because a lot goes into designing and styling a photo shoot for publication!  An essential component to a styled shoot is collaborating with other talented creatives who get the vision or concept for the shoot and are able to bring their “A” game on shoot day.

You would think that bringing a bunch of creative minds together would result in a subdued chaotic tug of war of egos but it’s quite the opposite. Every shoot I’ve participated in has been nothing but fun and rewarding.

Here is a look at our styled shoots that have been published!

Cranberry and blue fall wedding inspiration 


Cake and Lace Blog Palette:  featured our Cranberry and blue fall shoot (2017).

Creative Vision: Luis Lockhart’s (The Lockhart) inspiration for this editorial began by creating a subtle, yet beautiful palette of fall inspired colors. “We wanted to create a mix of cranberry and wine, which are usually known for depicting fall, but we also wanted to accentuate this with a touch of blue and dusty blue to give a delicate and unique vibe. This created a romantic and elegant scenery”
