Today’s styled shoot, brought to us by Amanda Bynum Photography (Tucson, AZ) is such a treat! We just love all the delicate, feminine details. Here’s Amanda to tell us more:

CJ had a vision of a late baroque French feel with mismatched bridesmaid gowns, a naked cake, and macaroons. I had the know-how from attending other styled shoots! We created this shoot to give Tucson wedding vendors the opportunity for an amazing shoot at a beautiful venue, with models and other awesome vendors–without having to do all the work themselves, and for less cost. We hoped it would be a win-win for everyone, and it totally was!! This romantic styled shoot at The Carriage House in beautiful downtown Tucson was nothing short of a dream come true!

See more after the cut!


Although you can’t see it from these photos (I’ll share some behind the scenes and tips for styled shoots later) but, My favorite part was all of the other photographers that joined us at the shoot. Everyone was so kind, friendly, and forthcoming with their knowledge and expertise. I heard people say, “I learned so much,” “Me and so and so really connected,” “Thanks for teaching me about XYZ”! People were loaning lenses and sharing expertise.

Laughing, smiling, and having a great time without the pressure of the wedding day timeline!! And when I saw the images come in, my mind was BLOWN!! So many talented photographers with different artistic views and special touches can turn the same scene into a dozen different ones! (Just one reason to review portfolios and chose a photographer that suits the style of photography YOU like!)
