A Quick Peek from Substance

I was honored to be a part of Substance again this past weekend. If you’re not familiar with it, Substance is a workshop put on my Jenna Walker and Katie Thurmes from Jenna Walker Photography for fellow photographers to come and learn more about the craft, gain a bit of inspiration and being a female entrepreneur.

This is the second workshop and the second chance I’ve had to be a part of designing a Styled Shoot for the participants to “play” with and experience what it takes to capture a wedding. I can’t wait to share the professionals’ takes of the day, but for now, just had to share this picture of the centerpiece created by Cori Cook at Cori Cook Floral Design. It’s a glimpse, albeit an amateur one taken with my phone (I know, gasp!), a little snippet into the overall design…with more to come.

Boulder Wedding Designer :: Styled Shoot for Jenna Walker’s Substance Workshop

As I said last week, I was honored to be a part of Substance, a workshop put on by Jenna Walker and Katie Thumes from Jenna Walker Photographers. They gathered 15 budding women photographers to talk craft, art, work and so much more.

I put together a Styled Shoot for the girls to play with and test out their newly refined skills. But, like all projects, I was not alone. Crystal Oleskevich created floral beauties. Liana from makeup by janine did the make up. Frisk Jewelry from Boulder loaned us a few of their pieces–this is just a small glimpse into all the fun pieces they make and sell out of their store on The Hill in Boulder. Friends at Chair Covers and Linens and All Events offered their linens, glasses, flatware and so much more.  And, finally, the gracious Paulette loaned us her car for the afternoon.

As for the inspiration, I have been collecting (much to mother’s uncertainty of their worth) state plates for a few years now. They are just so kitschy and so, well, wrong, that I think they’re fabulous. When Jenna and I started talking about the overall design, I offered a couple ideas in the Style File–state plate vintage-esque or spring bulb beauties. I wanted to be sure there was a more traditional, more standard pretty option for her to choose. I would be lying to say that I wasn’t thrilled when she chose the state plates and I finally had the chance to create the table that had been building alongside my collection.

It was designed to be a new take on the travel theme–rather than pastel colored maps and European backpacker inspired details, it’s highway, interstate or Route 66 kitsch! With old license plates tied to the backs of the chairs, brightly colored glassware, a vintage VW Bug with a Coca-Cola box tied on top and bottles of Bubble Up thrown in, it’s pure Americana!
