In August we had the opportunity to create several fun floral designs for a unique photography workshop here in Springfield. Kyndal Hawkins of Inner Images Photography and Beth Solano of Beth Solano Photography organized such a neat multi-day event for photographers all over the midwest. The first day included education and practice shooting in-home sessions, and the second day included a large scale three-couple styled wedding shoot at the beautiful Rockspan Lodge in Bois D’Arc.
For the styled wedding shoots, we created three bridal bouquets, warm florals for a large tablescape, and a huge crescent moon (with the help of Kyndal and Beth) made completely of greenery in the middle of the woods for the ceremony location.
Stevie with Wildly Collective put together a beautiful design plan for the shoot, drawing inspiration from the blood moon. Everything came together using seasonally transitional warm tones, with pops of celestial details here and there. The following photos from Beth Solano depict the day perfectly.
Warm Weather, Warm Florals
Same Subjects, Different Styles
One of the coolest things about the workshop is getting to see how each photographer captures details and scenes with their own twist. It’s amazing to see how each individual edits a little differently, captures depth of field in a variety of ways, and composes each of their photos with a unique perspective. Check out some of these talented workshop attendees.
Ivy Workshop Vendors
To say this talented cast deserves a shout out is an understatement. The day was gorgeous, and everything came together swimmingly. If ever you’re looking for some wonderful wedding vendors, give these businesses a look.
