Coastal Styled Shoot Fun!

Oh HEYYY beautiful followers! I am doing a RARE blog post on a Thursday! Blog goinnn UPP on a Thursdaaay!





OKAY. Now that I got that out of my system, let's talk about all the fun I had at a recent styled shoot!

First of all, this was my first time participating in something like this! So for those who do not know: a styled shoot is a photo shoot that has been coordinated with a specific theme and usually is concerning bridal. Sometimes you have models in the pictures, and other times you have an actual couple step in (like we did!). A group of vendors work hard to put all of this together and create a beautiful experience. I was so interested in participating!

We started early in the morning, glamming up our bride! Myself and hair Stylist Stephanie Kim went to work right away! We were on a strict time limit, so we had to work quick quick quickly! (Nothing we aren't used to!)

Once bride-model Kyla was all glammed up and ready, Lyra Vega Bridal dressed her in this beautiful lace dress. Beach Plum Flower Shop provided the huge beautiful cascading bouquet.

We started by getting ready at the Castle Manor Inn in Gloucester. Once we were packed and ready, onto the beach we headed! We shot the rest of the photos at Half Moon Beach in Gloucester. I have never been to Gloucester, and wow is it a pretty place! Very much so a beachy town. It is also BRIDAL central! Wow! It is the perfect town for a wedding! If you have never been to Gloucester, MA, GO. You won't be disappointed!

We shot the rest of the scenes, including a few scenes on the rocks and on the stairs, at Half Moon Beach. It was April, so the water was still too cold, but I was SO tempted to jump in! (Such a beach bum!)

It was so fun to participate in this shoot! I really enjoyed myself!
