Stylized Elopement | TIMMS Centre for the Arts | Edmonton Wedding Photographer
Stylized Elopement Session at the TIMMS Center
In February I had put together my first very own stylized shoot. Being the first stylized shoot I have put together myself I decided to keep it very simple and elegant by doing an “Elopement”. This allowed me to still work with other local vendors but I was able to keep it simple. My main focus was to capture the love that elopements bring forward. After a successful stylized session I now have more confidence which will allow me to create and grow even more for the next session. I will be planning another stylized shoot that has A LOT more detail in the near future so make sure to keep an eye out!
P.s if you’re a vendor in the Edmonton, Alberta area and you’d like to be apart of my next stylized shoot; head over to my contact page so we can talk about what we want to create! I’d love for all of our work to be published in a magazine for everyone to enjoy <3
I have a few amazing people to Thank for coming together and creating a beautiful stylized session. TC and Joben were absolute naturals when it came to modelling. Their love for each other was like no other. They made my job as a photographer more than easy. TC’s company (Mai Makeup, yes she does makeup and hair as well!) also provided the hair services. She brought her hair stylist and she did a fantastic job! She kept TC’s hair long with a half up half down style while still looking elegant. These two also kept their Wedding attire on and went into the city for some dinner! There’s nothing better than pretending like you just got married ;)
Faith with Beckett Beauty provided us with her amazing makeup skills. Faith attended MC College and is a certified makeup artist in the Edmonton Area. She also travels, so if you’re having a destination wedding she can come to you! For the stylized Elopement we decided to go for a very simple smokey eye with a nude lip. Since the shoot was meant to be very intimate the makeup worked perfectly for this!
May with Blooms by May was so kind to provide a stunning bouquet and boutonniere for the shoot! The flower choices worked perfectly for the shoot. There was so much thought that went into the florals. May also has the most adorable floral store in the Bonnie Doon Center.
I have been lucky enough for work with Sonja a second time! She hand makes jewelry and it is absolutely stunning. For this stylized shoot she had decided to put some of her new work in it. She is working on her Vintage Collection and the pieces are beyond gorgeous! Sonja put’s so much time and love into her work and it definitely shows. I have been able to photograph some of her other jewelry for the Stylized Proposal at Abraham Lake.
This is also the second time I’ve been able to work with Dori with Jars of Clay Calligraphy. She was so kind and made these beautiful Vow Books with the models names on them! If you ever get the chance, attend one of her calligraphy classes. You won’t be disappointed <3
Putting together this stylized session made me realize how much work event planners have to do. Since I did all of the planning I realized there is so much more to it than just calling or email someone. Lot’s of the times event planners do all of the setting up as well as getting everyone together for the shoot/event. Part of me absolutely loves the planning and creating the “event”. I get to let my creative juices flow while still having a set schedule and knowing what exactly will be happening. The next one I decide to put together will be just as fun and so much more creative! I can’t wait to bring you along on the journey.
Stylized Shoots are amazing for professional photographers to get their names out. You’re able to submit your photographs to magazines or to have an ad on social media. To top it off not only you but everyone who participated in the stylized shoot gets copies of the photographs for their business’ and to share!
THANK YOU - I am so grateful to be trusted while capturing not only your Weddings but local Vendors. It is about having a community of creatives not a competition. In this community it is all about helping each other grow so I can’t wait to work with you!
