I started creating art at a very young age and it has always been tough to find community and support as an artist. People say, "You will never make money that way" or "Good luck with that". I always knew I would pursue something creative for my career but never realized I would have a community around me in the midst of it. I joined the Pursuit 31 Frederick chapter a few months ago and we held our first styled shoot a few weeks ago! It was incredible to shoot along-side other photographers and work with other wedding creatives. Community over competition is a real thing in this industry and I am so thankful for it! 

There were incredible vendors who helped put this together along with wonderful models. The theme of the shoot was beach themed with teal accents and it was right up my alley! It reminded me of my wedding with the teal, driftwood, and starfish pieces. I loved it!! Stephanie & Ryan were our wonderful models and they modeled for us in their exact wedding attire they wore a year earlier on their wedding day. Love it! Enjoy these images from the styled shoot and show some love to the vendors listed at the bottom of this post! 

Such an incredible shoot!! Golden hour was stunning. Thanks to all the amazing vendors!!
