thoughtful styled shoot events to build or refresh the photographer portfolio
A NOTE from your host
We’re so excited to welcome you to The Styled Event, and we can’t wait to get to know you better soon! We know owning a photography can be really difficult at times, and we are here to make the road a little easier for you. We're so honored you want to join us in this journey!
As a full-time attorney and part-time wedding photographer, Nichole enjoys pouring into others and especially her fellow photography community. She strongly believes that by overcoming competition, we can achieve so much more, together!
The Styled Event was created out of a need in our area for thoughtful content-building opportunities for beginning and established photographers alike.

We have learned the important role quality vendors play in creating a stress-free styled shoot day. We've worked with each of the vendors below, and we cannot recommend them enough! This is not a paid list - we chose these vendors for both the quality of their work as well as their professionalism on the actual day of the shoot.

Styled Shoot Checklist
ready to join us?
HOW LONG WILL THE EVENT LAST?
This December shoot has two parts, so we have planned for 1-5pm. Attend just one or both!
WILL THERE BE ANY INSTRUCTION?
While this is event will not be in a typical "workshop" format with no formal instruction, Nichole will be available to answer questions and help with posing.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
The Styled Event is a styled shoot for wedding photographers without the work! We've planned an amazing shoot. All you have to do is show up and photograph!
ARE TICKETS REFUNDABLE?
While these event tickets are not normally refundable for any reason, there will be an exception for any attendees feeling sick up until the event start time. A full refund will be given in this case.
HOW MANY SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE?
We love to keep our events on the smaller, more intimate side. We know how hard it can be to fight crowds at styled shoot events, so we usually only accept 10-15 attendees. Which means, grab your ticket early!
WHERE CAN I GET THE LATEST INFO?
The most up to date information can be found on our Instagram page. There, we post upcoming mood boards, special announcements, and even secret promo codes! But you didn't hear that from us...
We love capturing all the little details because they tell a unique story! Even though our events don't include a real ceremony or reception, we want to make our events feel as close to a real wedding as possible. That's why we only use models who are actually couples in real life. And that's also why we don't leave out any details. Not only do you get to photograph a bride and groom model, but you'll also get a chance to spend some shooting time with a unique wedding cake, gorgeous wedding invites, rings, and other carefully curated details. We want your portfolio to include a complete view of your expertise in each part of the wedding day to help build that trust with your potential client.
The thing with booking weddings and building your portfolio that way is that you have little control of the creative design. Here at The Styled Event, we want to be a gateway for photographers to get into local venues they may have never been able to book a wedding at. By doing so, you get to experience all the newest and best venues in a relaxed and thoughtfully planned environment. The recipe for success!
count me in!
"The Styled Event is a safe haven for learning, creative freedom, & connection. Nichole made sure the groups were small, to ensure equal opportunity, & everyone was so supportive and sweet! I made so many friends, and it’s so refreshing to see other creatives at work. The Styled Event is the definition of community over competition, and Nichole is there to provide support every step of the way!"
"I would say DO IT!! It's a great outlet to be creative, meet other photographers, get great content and just have fun!! Nichole was a joy to meet and the venue was fantastic!! I would highly recommend any of her styled shoots!!"
Styled Shoots were THE way that I broke into the wedding industry when I was first starting out. I believe in their power so much, and that's why we're here. If I can help answer any questions or provide any guidance for you, please don't hesitate to reach out. We can't wait to see you at our next event!
