When I first wanted to get into wedding photography, I had basically no portfolio to show potential clients. I hustled hard that year, working for any photographer that would let me tag along for weddings. But that wasn’t enough to build up my website with work I wanted to share. One of the BIGGEST ways I jumpstarted my business was through planning and executing styled shoots with some of the best vendors in the area. I had a vision, and it was unreal watching it come to life. Now, four years later, I wanted to use the skills I developed over the years to help other budding photographers who are in my shoes from four years ago. I created an event called The Styled Event by Nichole Lauren. I take care of all the hard work, and all my attendees have to do is show up and shoot to get the content that need for their website and social.
We had the absolute BEST time at the very first Styled Event back in September that we ended up doing it all over again this month. You can view that blog post here. But this shoot would not have been possible without the incredible help of these amazing Greenville, SC Wedding Vendors.
