In December of 2016 I teamed up with an incredible group of vendors to design and plan my very first styled shoot. We had so much fun working together to bring this shoot to life at the beautiful Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo.
Photographer Cole Garrett came to me with the idea of collaborating on a shoot together. We met and bounced ideas around and decided we wanted to work with moodier tones with a darker edge to compliment the winter season. We also thought it would be nice to shoot outside and focus on all the greenery surrounding the venue. All the pieces came together wonderfully with the help of Tommy Rouse from Avenue Twelve rentals. He has such a great eye for design and helped us find the best items from his collection to fit the mood we were going for. Tommy also recommended Eden Floral, and I'm so grateful she agreed to come on board! Her arrangements are unlike any others I've seen and completely left me speechless. And a frozen floral arrangement? How creative! The colors and tones of the florals fit perfectly with the style of our models. The lovely ladies of The Queens Bees dolled up our bride perfectly to go with the gorgeous gown we were able to use from Moondance Bridal. Annette and Amanda from the shop came out and helped us style the bride for the shoot. To top it all off, Justin from British Motors brought a stunning vintage Jaguar out for us to shoot. Talk about a beautiful car... Even just the sound of it driving through the ranch was enough to make us all stop in our tracks.
And just like that, my first styled shoot was done. We really had such an amazing time working together while running around the fields of Flying Caballos. Cheers to the amazing vendors listed below for coming together and making the magic happen!
