I went to my first styled shoot/photographer workshop in downtown Wilmington the other week. It was put together and styled by Jacksonville photographer, Nicole of Darling Today. We set up shop at the Burgwin-Wright House on Market Street, which is an absolutely gorgeous venue, and met and worked with a handful of really talented vendors and local photographers. This was my first opportunity to photograph at the Burwin-Wright House and now it’s definitely going to be a place that I frequent. It had beautiful brick, big black and white patios on a classically Southern historic building, and it was overflowing with greenery. If it looked this beautiful in February, I can’t even imagine the colors that will sprout this spring. Anyway, we focused on working together to photograph these two sweet models, Alex and Lacey, as well as styling some images with invites and a cake. I had a blast laughing will some fellow creatives and making some sweet and romantic images. We also all played with different film cameras, including a Polaroid camera so old that I had never even used one like it – and if you know me at all, you know Polaroid is my favorite thing. Here are a few of my favorite photographs from our shoot, and please don’t hesitate to check out the wonderful vendors that worked together to make this happen. I’ve already got a styled shoot planned for this fall, and I can’t wait to start working on all of my millions of overflowing ideas!
