When Kristen of Kristen Rose Photography asked me about coordinating this wedding styled shoot I was super excited and nervous! This would be my first styled shoot and I knew the details and dynamics would be really different from wedding planning. We met at the White Hart in Downtown Lynchburg for coffee and after hearing her vision and heart for the shoot I knew I wanted to be part of it!
Lynchburg has SO many amazing vendors! These are people and companies with amazing talent and kind and generous spirits! I was so thankful to get the chance to work with each one of these amazing people! A big THANK YOU to Michelle at Mead Lake for opening their beautiful venue to us for the day!

This was such a fun day! We started with hair, makeup & mimosas and then drove over to Mead Lake in 92 degree weather to start the shoot. The models were CHAMPS despite the crazy heat and lots of little bugs that tried to join us!
Kristen was amazing and knew exactly how to get the models in the right spot for that gorgeous sunlight! Also, a HUGE shout-out to her husband Brandon who not only helped me lift and carry furniture all day but also held the chandelier in place for our gorgeous bench shots!
Enjoy a few more of our behind the scene photos! I cannot wait to share this entire styled shoot with you in the weeks ahead!
