Styled shoots are essentially small, mock events or weddings that allow several vendors to collaborate to creative something beautiful and/or innovative. The goal is often publication in industry blogs, but not always.
I've wanted to do a styled shoot for a while now, and I couldn't think of a better location than The Brazilian Court. I had been to their restaurant for dinner a year or two ago, and just thought it was so beautiful and intimate.
Once the venue was set, it was all about the theme, design and vendors. Working with the florist/designer was so helpful in bringing our visions to life, as we really wanted to do something unique and uncommon. We worked to create two looks: one bright, funky and unexpected, or what we deemed the "casual" look, and the other, the "formal" look - more high-end, antique, with champagne shades and luxurious.
I had a great time working with several local South Florida vendors to bring everything to life, and they all captured the day with their own individual expertise.
