HOW TO ORGANIZE A STYLED PHOTO SHOOT ON A BUDGET
Just go outside and shoot. Seriously. just do it, of course you can plan out and organize an extremely elaborate shoot with boutique gowns, expert florals, meticulously crafted cakes, and a beautifully styled place setting for two. Or you can find a model, use your old wedding dress and buy all the flowers at Kroger. I could probably bullshit that last part but lets be real, I'm busy, and aint nobody got time for that ;)
In all honesty that's exactly how I originally envisioned this styled shoot. I tried contacting venues, models, florists, rental houses, wedding dress boutiques, and makeup artists to see if they would donate their time (or trade for photo). Some agreed but most didn't and the whole thing started to fall apart; but I still wanted to get out there and shoot. So that's exactly what we did. Although it wasn’t what I originally had in mind I'm super pleased with how this low-key session turned out.
