This year I have been growing and expanding in my reach within my business. I completed my 3 month intensive course back in February to rebrand and upgrade my business. I started my email list, then began connecting with other wedding vendors. This step was huge and I felt ready for it. In beginning to reach out to other vendors, I met Vira Charensouk from Simply Just Weddings. After our first meeting we decided to do styled session together at Cannon Beach off the Oregon coast. She worked tirelessly planning and preparing with other vendors so we could make this happen. Her vision was just beautiful.
Come the planned date in April, our hearts sank as the weather was supposed to be straight up torrential wind, pouring rain and overall stormy. With styled sessions, they are just like weddings. All the vendors get together that are willing to help and they donate their services, time, rentals or items needed, whatever it may be. So to reschedule is just not possible. Just like a real wedding. The show must go on. So what are 2 girls with a crazy amount of stuff to photograph to do when it’s pouring rain and the wind is 20-45mph throughout the day? We make due with what we have. We set up the table inside and captured gorgeous photos of the arrangements and table settings. I photographed under the outside covering at the house we rented and our model was such a trooper in the cold. Overall I would call this session a total win still. Everything was beautiful even though the weather was less than ideal. Just goes to show, that even when your day doesn’t go as planned, you can still make it beautiful and amazing with what you are given. Lesson learned!
