We’re loving the movement of creative photography + design workshops, sweeping the states and beyond in recent years. Attending a workshop is the perfect way to sharpen your artistic abilities + learn from fellow creatives you admire. Today we’re excited to share a peek from Styled.’s fall workshop, hosted by Amanda O’Shannessy, owner of Amanda O’Shannessy Creative + One True Love Vintage Rentals. Inspired by gingham, richly hued seasonal foliage and the deep orange color of persimmons and rose hips, the shoot was all about celebrating the romance + coziness of fall. We’re loving so much about this session, especially that amazing bouquet + that perfect little textured number from Lovely Bride. Such a great dress for a fall celebration + would look so cute with a pretty coverup, too!
The Styled. bouquet formula: burgundy + white dahlias, rose hip, agonis foliage, rust amaranths, maple leaf + red winterberry.
Just how beautiful is this table setup? It exudes such a cozy + peaceful feel.
From the Styled. crew, Once the shoot is styled to perfection, the photography participants jump in and photograph styled vignettes like dessert displays, tabletop details, and model portraits. Photographers walk away with gorgeous editorial shots for their portfolio and a better understanding of how to get the best detail shots possible, even if a stylist is not present. Styling participants, on the other hand, leave with the tools to better execute their own styled shoots + events.
So there you have it! A fun glimpse into a very pretty workshop, plus great inspiration for all of you planning a wedding for this fall! This year Styled. is headed to the east coast.
