I flew up to Sonoma this past spring to teach a beginning photography course with my friend, Allyson Wiley (Weekes), who is a photographer extraordinaire up in Norcal. But the day before we taught the course in her beautiful studio in the Sonoma Square, I met her mid shoot at Chateau St Jean winery where she had some beautiful models, an awesome stylist, makeup and hair artist, and a wedding coordinator as a part of a styled wedding inspiration shoot.
I’m telling you, I don’t get to work much in a group yet where there are other artistic professionals around making sure things are in place and looking pretty. I have rarely done a styled shoot and I am telling you that I LOVE IT. LOVE IT! As much as I am super big on real moments, I appreciate the other side of the coin, too. When it comes to commercial work, I cannot wait to work with a team of pros.
