As a photographer, most of what I do is alone, like marketing, editing, posting on IG, and more. Don't get me wrong, I do love me some alone time, but it can feel very secluded. This last year, not only have I been diving into the world of wedding photography, I've also been joining a couple different networking groups and it's been such an amazing experience!
One of the groups I'm a part of is Tuesday's Together in San Jose, and I met Adriana from Be Loved Events and Design. She's has been such an awesome supporter of our group and puts on these organized styled shoots where lots of different creatives can collaborate and make something beautiful.
She will soon be launching Creatively Curated Workshops that will occur every other month where several creative folks can make some magic! Last month, I was able to taste what that would be like!
The styled photo shoot was at Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos, which I was a huge fan of because my family and I are members at that winery. (Let's be real-- I wanted to photograph there AND get my free glass of wine :)). The makeup artists usually start with getting the models ready for the photo shoot. What they do is such an art, and they make everyone look gorgeous! The other artists help set up different prop stations that show off their work, and us photographers come in and shoot!
Working with other artists really inspires me to keep a fresh eye and they help me step up my A-game. There's no room for complacency here, so I love styled shoots like this that keep my creative juices flowing!
I even got to take head shots for some of the beautiful artists we had! I mean just look at those gorgeous smiles. :)
Here are all the vendors and artists that were a part of making this awesome event happen! Check out their work and mention that I sent you. ;)
