Even though this shoot took place almost a year ago now, I can still remember the afternoon like it was yesterday. Just a few days previously, Rebecca from Rebecca M. Creative had reached out to me to see if I was available to shoot a last-minute styled shoot that she had quickly thrown together. This was my first time working with Rebecca, and really my first time interacting with her. I learned that “quickly thrown together” with Becca still meant impeccable details, styling, and vendors. She chatted easily with everyone there, and introduced me to all of her creative friends, and I felt like I had been let in on a brand new world of talent in Utah.
The day was a gorgeously warm, yet still crisp, fall day with the leaves just beginning to change color. The sun shined brightly on us, and as I posed our model, Aubree (whom I would photograph several more times after this, and enjoy working with her each and every time), Becca styled a donut tower and the most gorgeously intricate invitation suite from Weddings By Eccentricity.
I was also excited for the chance to use film during this shoot, as I try to save my film for personal, fun projects. After the shoot was over, I went home and edited the images right away, drooling over each one. But it turns out that once I received my film back from The Find Lab, I loved the greens and tones so much better in my film, that I completely re-edited my digital images to better match the film shots! This is one interesting side effect of shooting hybrid (both film + digital); I find that I tend to love the colors of my film better, so it affects the way I edit my digitals.
Rebecca submitted our shoot to be published with the Aisle Society, and we were all thrilled to have it featured on Burnett’s Boards this summer! It was an honor to be a part of this shoot with so many other talented creatives and what makes it even sweeter is to have others see it on a national blog!
A huge thank you to all our amazing vendors:
