Hello lonley little blog. We are so sorry to have neglected you for so long. This summer has been busy as ever and sadly the blog has taken a back seat lately. Well do not fret dear blog readers we have plenty of visual deliciousness for you!
As some of you may know Brad and I, along with our wonderful friends Jeremy & Kara Pennington of Kara Pennington Photography recently started www.JaxShootClub.com. We had our first shootout last month in downtown Jacksonville’s Friendship Park. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amazing turn out we had for our very first meetup. Over 35 people were in attendance all ready to shoot, experiment and have fun hanging out with other creative professionals. This months shootout is coming up soon and we already have 80 RSVP’s for the event. We are so excited to see so many local photographers getting involved and working together to hone their craft. On top of being surrounded by so many incredible photographers we were blessed to have other vendors volunteer their time and services to our shoot. We provided 5 models for everyone to shoot. One bride and groom, one engagement session couple and one solo bride for bridal portraits. All our models graciously volunteered their time and were incredibly accommodating to all our crazy photography demands. Hair and make up was done by makeup artist Faythe Mesic. The incredible Josie of Anything with Plants and Flowers donated three gorgeous boquets for our models to carry. Also, our solo bride Lauren wore an amazing dress Alvina Valenta dress and Lori London veil from Solutions Bridal in Gainesville. We could not have asked for a more beautiful evening to be shooting downtown. Here are a few shots of the beautiful florals from the evening.
One thing I loved about this shootout was that Brad and I split off into separate groups. We so love shooting together and feel like our work compliments each other all the time so it was exciting to see what we came home with after spending the entire evening shooting entirely separate. I know I always say it on here but seriously, I am always blown away by what a phenomenal photographer my husband is. So I wanted to dedicate this post to his images from the shootout. I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do. Stay tuned for my post coming soon.
this series is my FAVORITE!!!
