In case you missed it, we’ve been published AGAIN, this time in Brides and Weddings Magazine! Before I give you the link to see the post, let me give you a little background information.
In addition to doing stationery work for clients, most stationers I know participate in styled shoots. These styled shoots are a pre-designed mockup of an event. Most times it’s a styled wedding with a specific theme that the event planner or organizer wants to showcase. The theme can be something they have never organized before but want potential couples to know is available as a part of their services.
Who’s Who at a Shoot
These events include models that pose as the bride and groom. Sometimes the models are a married or engaged couple. In addition to them, there are photographers, videographers, florists, and event planners. To be realistic, you would also need wedding gowns, tuxedos, and bridesmaids’ attire which are all provided by local vendors. I have to say that we have some extremely creative dress designers in our area who provide some GORGEOUS gowns. Sometimes even a baker and jeweler are involved.
Planning A Shoot
Planning a good styled shoot takes just as long as planning a wedding and depending on how elaborate the shoot is, can be an all-day event. Just think, there has to be a fabulous location, fabulous vehicles, decorations, tables with linens, and chairs, and people! Great shoots also include food, because everyone gets hungry!
Anyway, the location chosen for the shoot was out of state. I could have gone but was on vacation on the scheduled date. Instead, I mailed all of the requested pieces. The design was something I wanted to do but hadn’t yet had any clients ask for it. I was SUPER excited about the opportunity.
After the Shoot
After the shoot is when the real work starts. The photographers work their magic and choose the best images to submit to the organizer. This time, Brides and Weddings Magazine published the shoot at the beginning of September. You can see the article here: https://tinyurl.com/mvpmdvtv. Every vendor involved in the shoot put in a TON of work to make it successful! Take a peek and I hope you enjoy it!
All the best!
