@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: This styled shoot was a vision I had for a while, so seeing it come to life was AMAZING! We did so many fun, unique decorations—like a macramé altar, a pool party wedding reception, a two-piece wedding dress and bright flowers. I love styled shoots for so many reasons! One, it allows you to connect with vendors. Making it in the wedding industry is part talent and part who you know! Vendors will be the ones suggesting you to their clients, posting your photos on social media and inviting you to wedding events, so it’s a good idea to connect with talented people. And secondly, styled shoots allow you shoot for yourself, instead of for a client. I know a lot of us get tired shooting the same type of wedding decor and the same type of wedding dresses, so at a styled shoot, I always make sure everything we do is unique and could serve as good inspiration for my future brides. I also use this time to try out new posing techniques, new lenses and new film stock. It's these type of shoots where you can really try new things and be bold!

@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: In-between moments usually turn out to be my favorite photos. Always keep your camera up and ready when doing a bride and groom’s portraits, so much interaction is happening that a great moment could occur at any time between your planned shots.
@daniellepoffphoto Takeover Day 3: I love helping my clients create their dream photoshoot, it always makes for better photos and happier clients. So when this couple said they wanted a lake engagement session on a boat, we made their vision a reality. I suggested Lake Del Valle in Livermore, California, along with a florist to decorate their boat. Communication is key to make sure what your clients envision is realistic, and it’s equally important to find vendors who can help bring their vision to life. Thank you for following along this week for my #pvtakeover! Some final words of advice to aspiring photographers: Hustle, hustle, hustle. Be nice to everyone, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. This will take you far and closer to your dreams!
