Oz-Inspired Styled Shoot

Emerald and Gold Oz Styled Shoot Last month, I was lucky enough to take part in my first styled shoot. I posted the behind-the-scenes photos but was waiting to post the real photos until we (crossing my fingers) got featured. Well ... good news! Borrowed and Bleu has agreed to publish our shoot, and they're being super nice and letting me share a couple photos here since they won't be featuring the shoot until September. So enjoy a few of my favorites, and be sure to check out Borrowed and Bleu the middle of September for the full feature!

A huge virtual hug to all these fantastic people that helped create the scene!

A Sneak Peek and a Giveaway!

The sun peaked over the roof of the Glidden House just as we were putting the final touches on the cake table. I snapped away and secretly did a few fist pumps. Some days I really can't believe I get to be a photographer in real life, and yesterday was one of those days. I got to be part of the fabulous creative team that put together an Oz-inspired styled shoot, complete with a bride and groom, dainty flowers spilling out of teapots, and lots and lots of emerald and gold. I can't WAIT to share all these photos with you but for now it's just a sneak peek. You guys.

And if that's not enough excitement for one post, I also get to give away two pairs of tickets to Cleveland Magazine's Silver Spoon Awards party happening from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 at the InterContinental Hotel downtown! :D This is a charitable event that benefits the Arthritis Foundation (of Northeast Ohio) and it includes food-tasting from more than 40 fantastic local spots, including Deagan's, Hodge's and Spice Kitchen + Bar. Plus, wine is included. How can you say no to wine? Or live entertainment, a raffle and a silent auction? The answer is you can't.

To top it off, I get to photograph the event! I'm really looking forward to this, and I want a few of you guys to join me. To enter to win one of the pairs of tickets, please leave a comment below telling us how you choose to give back. You may enter one time between now and Sunday, May 12 at midnight. I'll post/contact the winners on Monday and mail the tickets ASAP! I can't wait to see some of you at this great event!
