Wedding season is winding down for the year and that means I finally have some time to play! This week I got together with a group of extremely talented local vendors to create a styled wedding portrait shoot. Our goal was to give each vendor the freedom to express their creative vision and try something new, while simultaneously creating images that could be used by all to build their portfolios and showcase their skills. It took weeks of planning and a little flexibility, but it all came together at the end! Special thanks to our volunteer models: Vanessa, Stephen, Blake, and Dee!

Check out this behind the scenes video created by the very talented Kenny Hopkins of Aurora Cinema!
