What a shoot! Styled shoots aren’t really my area of expertise but I had a blast with this shoot! I have so much respect for all stylists out there because so much planning and details go into everything they do. Casting models, choosing color palettes, obtaining and moving all the props, selecting a menu, securing and organizing prop donations its endless! But all the tiny details and stylistic direction all came together flawlessly and I’m thrilled with the results. Montana De Oro beach made the perfect backdrop with how gorgeous sunsets there are. The casual, homey feel of laying out some pillows and bringing the table from home to the local beach was a real representation of life in San Luis Obispo. Its not known for being the happiest city in America for nothing! I would also like to thank local businesses for donating to the shoot: Wilder Flower Company, Just Baked SLO, and Chef and food designer Daniel Bleckinship!
