ENCHANTED FOREST STYLED SHOOT
Being our first styled shoot, I am not going to lie… I WAS extremely EXCITED and NERVOUS at the same time! I did not know what I was getting myself into… all I knew was that I had a theme to create and the team to make it happen.
Our Team: Blessed Creations by YG took on the tasks of planning, decorating, and coordinating the event… and what an honor it was! Irene Rivera from Madison Barn Wedding venue worked diligently to make sure that all the areas were accommodating and enchanting for the shoot. In addition, Mrs. Irene decorated the catering area and prepared all of the delicious refreshments for the team… talk about going above and beyond! Jose Gabriel Estrella from Fresh Creativo Photography captured the amazing day and helping you see through his lens what an enchanted forest should look and feel like! Last, but absolutely not least, our AWESOME MODELS: Kelvin & Niurka Lopez, Manuel & Taryana, Dynesty Medina, Kayden Wyffels, and Rio, Maya, & Tatiana Zabala… without them none of this would have been possible, seriously!
Gathering the look: I thought of the key elements I wanted to incorporate to bring the vision to life: Wood (lots of it too!), Greenery (some artificial – but mostly the venue’s natural environment brought it!), glass, touches of gold, and ivory to stand out from all the green! My main goal was to create an everlasting classic, elegant, enchanting look.
Choosing the venue: The Madison Barn @ Branchton Farms is like no other (sorry, I am biased because I have seen every step of this venue’s growth and it’s been like watching the metamorphosis of butterflies… from egg to adulthood… just beautiful!). Madison Barn is a unique venue featuring a natural 2200 sq. ft. barn and lighted 2500 sq. ft. courtyard under ancient oak trees. It scenic old town backdrop and lovely old western saloon/bar sets it apart from all others in the Tampa Bay area. The intimate and enchanting landscapes surrounding the barn was what made it the PERFECT location for our enchanted forest styled shoot!
Capturing the Style: I knew that we had to work with Jose Gabriel Estrella from Fresh Creativo Photography on this project! From working with him in the past we knew that he was professional, passionate, reliable, and FUN to work with and we couldn’t pass up this opportunity! Fresh Creativo Photography is known for capturing moments that last forever, even when time passes. The images captured told a story; they took us to another place; and made us feel “enchanting”!
Sooo… we ventured on this amazing yet unknown adventure and well… OH WHAT A BLESSING IT WAS – Our First Styled Shoot was a TRUE SUCCESS and one for the books.
