It's always a pleasure to work with Shaina Diaz from Shaina Lee Photography. We met a couple years ago and have remained friends since. This summer, I was presently surprised when I found an E-mail in my inbox asking me to collaborate on a sailboat elopement shoot at the Schooner Cove Marina in Stamford, CT. To my surprise, Shaina wasn't the only photographer involved. Plot twist! Becca from Rebecca Walker Photography joined in on the fun! They sent over a mood board with all their ideas and I put my spin on it! The florals were d-r-e-a-m-y, the team of vendors was lovely, and the colors were amazing! Am I the only one who's giddy over styling shoots?! Viewers, if you are head-over-heels for punchy hues, colorful blooms, show-stopping wedding décor and stationary, gorgeous gowns, buttery soft velvet ribbon, and uhh-MAZING hair and makeup artistry, dive into this ombré sailboat elopement styling editorial shoot featuring not ONE but TWO galleries, by Shaina Lee Photography and Rebecca Walker Photography!
