Back in August I had a wonderful opportunity come up to do a styled photo shoot with some talented local vendors here in Winnipeg. When Amanda of Lace and Lavender approached me with her vision of a tea party in the woods, I immediately said yes to jumping on board. And it wasn’t long before her enthusiasm got me inspired! My first thought was to get Academy Florist and Laugh Love Cakes on board… these two vendors have done work in recent weddings that I’ve photographed this summer, so I instantly knew that they were going to be an awesome fit. Even better was when they both agreed to take part in the shoot! Amanda and I were over the moon happy to have them on board (and the photos will show you why)!

This whole shoot would not have been a reality without the help of some fine ladies, so here is the official thank you list:

Amanda Douglas of Lace and Lavender – for your initiative, creative vision and amazing props

Lauren Wiebe of Academy Florist – for your beautiful flower crowns and floral arrangements

Kayla Milligan of Laugh Love Cakes – for your quick work, gorgeous (and delicious!) sweet creations

Katie, Lynzie, Sara & Amanda – for being beautiful models that were a delight to work with! (and for braving the mosquitoes!)

And if you’d like to have a styled photo session as an idea for a stagette, bridal shower, birthday party or a fun photo shoot with your girlfriends, get in touch with me and I can let you know how we can create a custom photo shoot for your event. It’s a great way to do something a little more fun and exciting with your group of friends!
