Styled Shoots are my jam!!!
This was the second styled shoot I have ever hosted, and the only one with this many vendors. The Elevated Estate, a new wedding venue on Topaz Lake was our gracious host and provided all the rentals for the shoot. This shoot came together in a little over a month, and I was stressing hard on all the details, especially since the original model decided to back out 1 week before the shoot. Luckily I reached out to our beautiful model Kira who handled the short notice like a champ and everything worked out as it was meant to be. Kira and Chosen officially met for the first time the morning of the shoot, but Kira had actually reached out to him because she had seen his work from other photographers. You would never know from their chemistry, they were on fire!!!!!!!
I will post a full list of our amazing vendors at the bottom, but I just want to brag about a few of them real quick! This insanely gorgeous dress is from a company called Dalliance Bespoke that sells and rents beautiful handmade gowns, and their rentals are super affordable. The cake, florals, invitation suite, and hairstylist/makeup artist are all from local vendors in the Reno, Nevada area. I love working with as many local businesses as I can, because it's always best to support local and they are usually super supportive and flexible. Speaking of local artists the HMUA is a wonderful local lady that I actually attended high school with in my tiny hometown of Bishop, California and she does amazing WORK!
