Styled Shoot – Cocktail Party at Warrenwood Manor

Take your coat off and stay a while.

Party. Cocktails. Vibes.

The idea was to make a fun and flirty styled shoot that flaunted some creativity that we had lurking in the back of our minds. At first, we weren’t sure what it was that we were planning and eventually we landed on a cocktail party inspired “date.” We wanted something out of the norm, something really intriguing, playful and fresh. We were really excited by the idea imagery for receptions, cocktail parties, fancy birthdays, anniversaries, engagement parties, or even classy group date nights. I was ready to try out a few new film cameras, Alexis wanted to make intricate floral accessories and Sabrina was down for the party 🙂

I will say that this was the most planning I’ve ever been involved with in a styled shoot. It was a bit overwhelming at times, but we worked as a team to get all the little details in place to bring this party to life. From collaborating with local vendors and models; to planning our imagery and florals; troubleshooting; to playing stylist and putting the final pieces together in the midst of our busiest season of the year (laughing now, crying then); I can say it was a success!

Let’s make something awesome together.

I love collaborations, and you’ll always catch me trying to plan one. So, anyone out there who has creative energy and has been dying to burn it a styled photo shoot, let’s chat. I’ve really been wanting to flex my film muscles (or mostly build them up.)

What I'm About

To all the lovers out there,

You are beautiful, and you are loved. You’ve got something magical inside & around you. Let’s show it off.

I want to empower your love and show all the little details that tell your story. Whether you’re marrying your best friend, having fun with your family, or you’re a professional. You have a passion for something amazing and I want to inspire you to flaunt it. I can’t pose your love, I can only encourage you to open up in front of my camera. So, let’s make it a memorable experience, so that you leave our session feeling loved, proud of yourself, your work, family, and your community.

I’m most intrigued by real moments. Let’s explore spaces that are unique to you, that you’re most comfortable in. Like cooking in your home, gardening in the backyard, picnicking in the gorge, walking the dogs around the neighborhood, or even cuddling in your underwear!

With love,

Dana
