About a month ago, I was honored to be a part of my first styled shoot. A local photographer named Mei Lin Barral reached out to me and told me that she found me on Instagram. She could tell that I was trying to break out into the wedding industry here in Vermont, and wanted to give me the opportunity to showcase my work. Right then, I knew that I wanted to be a part of this shoot! I was flattered that she liked my work, but most of all, I was so happy to find quick camaraderie and teamwork in this industry! It instantly gave me hope that with help from others, anything is possible.
The theme of the day was Autumn Inspired, and from there, Mei Lin put together the most beautiful and organized styled shoot. She pulled together all local, Vermont vendors to highlight the talent that lies right here in our state. The women that I met that day were friendly, full of advice and so skilled with their crafts. I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah from Finishing Touch, Lori from the Barn at Boyden Farm, Sandra from Sandra Dee Owens Jewelry, Jenn from Letterally Speaking, and the Model, former Miss Vermont International, Karly Fereday!
In between the rain storms, Mei Lin captured the beauty of our location; the Farm at Boyden Farm. The setting was nestled in between the Green Mountains surrounded by grape vines from the vineyard. The view is absolutely stunning along with the space the venue offers. Mei Lin utilized the inside and the outside of the barn for the shoot, and the photos came out beautifully.
Again, I feel so honored to be a part of a styled shoot like this, and to meet other vendors within the Vermont wedding community. It’s encouraging to know that there are other women out there cheering you on; ready and willing to help you grow your business. I’m so excited to keep working with clients and to keep creating art that reflects their unique wedding day.
