“Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” – Misty Copeland
It can be really terrifying to reach out to ladies that you have met once at a dinner and ask if they want to go all out and put together a styled shoot with you. But I had a good feeling about Jenna and Katy and decided what was the worst that could happen right?!
I am so glad that I did because these two women are amazing. We met for coffee in Saranac Lake to hash out the details of putting together a styled shoot. We all must have been on our third cup of coffee because at some point in that meeting we decided to have TWO DAYS of shooting, MULTIPLE table settings and FIVE MODELS! But by gosh we pulled it off and I could not be more happy with the results!
The vendors that participated in the two days of styled weddings shoots were amazing. A huge thank you goes out to Fred of the Porcupine Inn for the amazing venue and hospitality! All of the participating wedding vendors are all local to the Adirondack Region and we are so lucky to have such amazing talent in the Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, and Plattsburgh area. From the flowers to the invitation suite to the jewelry – they knocked it out of the park. Please take a moment to look at the full list of vendors included in the photographs below especially if you are planning a wedding!
The look below is just one of three that we did on the first day so make sure to stay tuned for my next blog post to see the other amazing looks!
