{Ink and Pearl} an Orchestrated Stylized Shoot-Virginia Beach

This weekend was amazing.  I headed down to Virginia Beach to participate in a stylized shoot, and to sum it up in one word:  EPIC.  A stylized shoot is basically a mock wedding, it gives us creative folks a chance to get super creative without the stress of a wedding day timeline.  This shoot was gorgeous! It was based off of Miss Coco Chanel itself.  Everything was black and white, and once of my favorite pieces of jewelry...pearls, were center stage.  The weather was perfect.  The home that we were in, was absolutely stunning, I have never seen a more beautiful home.  It literally took my breath away.  I had a great time meeting new photographers, and just letting the creative juices flow.  Here are some of my absolute favorites!

And a HUGE THANK YOU! to all of the amazing vendors that were involved in putting this together:

Head on over to their websites and become fans, these people were absolutely AMAZING! And yes, at the end of the shoot, we got to indulge in all of the snacks that were there, and they were DELICIOUS!  But I totally had a sugar overload, so I had to stop myself.
