Every year I try to plan at least one styled shoot, if not two! Styled sessions are a great way to practice new techniques, build your portfolio, meet + work with local vendors, and create content. I absolutely love styled sessions for so many reasons! If you’re curious about how to go about planning a session you’ll definitely want to stick around. I’ve got some great educational content coming very soon!
Today I want to share my latest shoot that took place at The Legacy Building, a beautiful wedding venue in El Paso, IL. This venue used to be an opera house and let me tell you – this place is steeped in history! If you’re looking for a gorgeous venue for an intimate ceremony + celebration then you need to check this place out.
My vision for this shoot was to show couples that small does not have to equal boring or bland! Intimate celebrations are becoming more common and I wanted to show couples what a small celebration could look like.
Make sure to check out + follow all of the local vendors listed below! I would highly recommend any of these talented individuals to couples looking for vendors for their special day.
