Photographers Mike Aguilar and Ashley R West came up with an amazing idea to team up with other photographers and different vendor so that everyone could promote their talents. Here is the mission and overview of this amazing project staring non other than our striking AK150 provided by Silhouette Bridal. Here are some pictures of the photo shoot so that any brides-to-be can find inspiration of how they want their pictures to look and even find some vendors!
Mission: This event was a joint effort in planning and coordination between Mike Aguilar Photography and Ashley R West Photography with the direct assistance of Leslie Herring Events to create opportunity for emerging photographers, models, boutiques, and vendors. The idea is taking a massive opportunity typically only found during weddings and removing all the stress of massive time constraints, extensive costs, and create opportunities through collaboration and networking. All parties in the end will walk away from this event with content they are free to use for marketing purposes in the future. If you look at the list of single entities, you’ll see there was a lot of focus on our mission to create a well-rounded event.
Overview for the day: While there are several new creatives, models, and vendors in this lineup there are also several veteran entities that expressed interest and ultimately came on board to support this massive marketing opportunity for those who needed content heavily. The day was broken into 3 parts. Prep content (social mixer, detail shots, table shots, and HMU), 1st gown, 2nd gown.
During the 1st part of the day photographers captured preparation content of the HMUAs working on the models, table arrangements, gowns, and detail shots of jewelry and accessories. This is also a chance for all attendees to break ice and introduce themselves to their peer creatives and the vendors. The 2nd/3rd parts are focused on maximum model/gown availability and free reign for creativity is given to everyone within the comforts of all parties involved.
