It’s been just over a month since my new website launched and the Hunger Games Styled Shoot I organized was featured on The Wedding Chicks; such an exciting time with lots of appreciation for the shoot and its inspiration coming in – even now!
My sister and photography assistant Rachel took a little video on her iPhone 3GS on the day of the shoot, but because we kept everything so private leading up to the reveal on The Wedding Chicks blog, I kind of forgot altogether that she had taken that video for us! So, today’s vlog will give you a little look into our mucky location and how a styled shoot looks…before the photos are released to the world! Keep in mind the difference in wardrobe from our talented professionals to our lovely models – from coats and scarves and boots to a wedding dress! Jill, thank you for braving this shoot for us! xo
Also, looking back on our shoot, I’m thrilled with how everything came together and cannot thank everyone involved enough – I was totally blessed to photograph the talents of such an amazing team! I think the one thing I would have changed now though is that I would have considered contacting a professional videographer to document the shoot for us; it’s nice to have a different sort of visual record – especially with anything “Behind the Scenes”. I’ll definitely keep this in mind for next time!
