The Gathered Creative Styled Shoot in Seattle

One of the coolest styled shoots I did this year was for The Gathered Creatives. It’s a group of amazing photographers that put together a workshop for other photographers to come and photograph a styled shoot without having to plan anything. Some were new to the business, or wanted to do test shots and some wanted to just be creative. The outcome was so awesome. It is great to see different styles and perspectives on the same scene. The day was broken up in three different groups, a couple, bridal and boudoir. We were in an incredible space in Pioneer Square with perfect natural light. It had so many great elements to use as a backdrop, like the brick wall, the windows or the furniture and accessories that were in the space!

For flowers I didn’t need to do much. They let me have creative freedom. I went with funky textures for the boutonnieres for the guys. I kept with the texture theme for the two bouquets for the bridal and the boudoir. Dark and moody for the boudoir which went great with her dark intimate wear. Then soft and light for the bridal. There were hints of blush and off white which went so well with the dresses we used. For a fun backdrop, I created an altar piece that had air fern climbing up them, almost like huge feather boas. They turned out so amazing.

It’s so hard to narrow down what pictures to use. So I decided to break down my favorites from some of the photographers that I got shots from and grouped those together. They are just so good!!! A huge thank you to our models for the day! Jenna was gorgeous and the dresses fit her perfectly. She was the sweetest!!! Thank you to the guys, Ian & Jason. You both were so fun to work with and looked so dapper!!! And thank you to Chelsea, she was a last minute fill in and she rocked it. We all said people need to channel her fierce vibe when getting boudoir done. She was so fantastic to be around. You guys made this day so amazing!!!

I can’t wait to join in the next event like this. Felt so good to be creative and be around people that bring out that creativity.
