Bohemian Romance, A Styled Shoot in Rome, Georgia

Earlier this Fall I had the pleasure of attending the annual Pursuit 31 conference down in Rome, Georgia.  It was full of photographers and really, all kinds of amazing artists, and while it was amazingly faith centered and a break away from the busyness and stress of work, they offered incredible breakout sessions that were professionally based, and centered on the various industry concentrations the attendees specialize in.  So, when I found out a few months prior to the conference that they were planning a styled shoot for photographer training, I got in touch with some of the ladies planning it and offered to design a dress for the shoot!  The theme was bohemian and romantic, and they were envisioning bright colors, a teepee, and a floral headband!  What could be more fun?!  So I sent off a few sketches, we decided on our favorite and the journey towards creating their dress began!!  We worked with a model that I didn’t actually meet until I handed her the dress the day of the shoot, (usually I have a couple fittings with my brides, this was the first time I delivered something with no fittings) and the dress fit PERFECTLY!!  It was so much fun working with the girls doing the shoots, and listening to Katelyn and Mary teach the attendees all their little secrets!  The model was gorgeous and it was incredibly beautiful watching the smile on her husband’s face every time he looked at her and seeing how much he loves her!

So here’s a few pictures from some of the amazing photographers involved in the shoot, I’m so excited about all the wonderful ladies I met and the incredible friendships that came out of this shoot, and from the whole conference.  There’s just something so sweet about the beautiful collaborations that happen with the wonderful people in this industry!  It was an amazing time away, I hope you enjoy the beautiful images and are inspired as much as I was!



p.s. I’ll be selling the dress as a sample a little later on, let me know if you know anyone who’s interested!

Didn’t the photographers do an incredible job!  It was so much fun watching them teach, and learn, and be part of this amazing community, and I’m thrilled I got to be involved!!
