Jefferson South Carolina Styled Shoot

Back in March, I had the opportunity to attend a styled shoot in Jefferson, South Carolina with one of my good (photography) friends, Patty. For those who don’t know, styled shoots are created to allow a team of vendors and photographers to work together to allow each party to get creative in exchange for images. Patty was actually the one who introduced me to the designer and planner of this event, Samantha Grigg. Patty and I bought our tickets, booked a hotel and headed down to Jefferson the weekend of the 21st.

Now Jefferson, SC is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so when the GPS said we were 10 minutes away and all we’d managed to drive through since we got to South Carolina was woods, we were a little concerned. But before long (and after several missed turns) we rounded the corner to see a big, beautiful white barn venue.

We were really early, so after some deliberation, we decided to go inside. I was nervous but really excited! Patty and I got to watch these incredible vendors set up and we got to see a small part of what they do. I had never seen a florist actually create an arch before so I loved seeing her work come to life.

Patty and I met other photographers and vendors while having the opportunity to capture these beautiful images that wouldn’t have been possible without these amazing people!
