Kassie Layne Photography A SPECIAL NOTE FROM ME TO YOU Welcome to a very special edition of Styled Shoot Magazine! I am so excited you are here! This magazine is for wedding professionals, styled shoot hosts and attendees, and anyone with a desire to serve their clients with a large dose of authenticity and joy. We are part of a community with an insatiable need to express creativity. SSM is meant to be a source of inspiration, insider tips, and resource lists for all your creative projects. The purpose of Styled Shoot Magazine is to provide creatives a place to stop the scroll and comparisonitis and realize we are all similar enough to get along and different enough to be incredibly special in our own way. I believe we thrive in life when we are pursuing our dreams with a plan and incorporating our purpose into every decision we make. Thriving can be difficult when we are constantly comparing what we do to the work of others and trying to recreate someone else’s masterpiece. We can accomplish so much more when we recognize our own unique gifts and use them well. This early-release special edition highlights Wedding Camp, an educational styled shoot, with the purpose of feeding the desire to learn, to create, and to take action. In this issue, you will see the results of teamwork and collaboration. The recurring theme is purposeful relationships. My goal is to create a community that is positive and uplifting where pros really get to know one another and hold each other accountable. My hope is that you will find a new joy for what you do while perusing these pages. Throughout this issue, purpose will be mentioned often and if you're taking notes, you'll see how it can change your portfolio, for good. And I truly believe the best IS yet to come. If you like what you see, read to the end to discover how to subscribe so you don't miss a single issue! As you flip through these pages, I hope you feel the warmth and desire to serve that I’ve put into this edition. As you read through the articles, I hope you think about how you could use these ideas to create something unique that’s aligned with your purpose. xo - JacquelineAs you create your own masterpiece, I want you to know that I am here - cheering you on!

joyFIND YOUR in Relationships The dictionary defines relationships as the way in which two objects, concepts or people are connected. Did you realize that relationships are an integral part of your portfolio? My ideas about a well-rounded portfolio are a little unorthodox - which you will discover as we build our relationship (see what I did there?) - but for now, I'd like to touch on this one critical component. Learning to communicate, interact, and serve each other effectively will greatly impact the level of joy we derive from what we do. Let me ask you a question: When was the last time you introduced yourself to other professionals responsible for the overall experience at an event? Many times when we are hired for a job, we deliver our goods / services without a SINGLE INTERACTION with another vendor/creative/pro. Taking the time to intentionally connect and learn about two or three other business owners could drastically expand our network circle. And beyond that? There is always the bonus of gaining some incredible friendships! You never know where your next best friend is hanging out. Give people a chance. Instead of thinking about how the shortcomings of others might affect you, focus on how amazing it is that we get to create fabulous experiences because of our connection! Let's talk about how you can set an intention to connect at your next event. Here are a couple ideas to get you started: Send a DM or text the week prior to the event to introduce yourself Purposefully approach them, introduce yourself & smile Express an authentic compliment Carry a small token to share with other vendors (gum, mints, granola bar - because, who isn't hungry?) Follow up with communications after the event to say \"great job\" ps. I asked the above question to one of my clients recently, and she told me that reflecting on this and implementing intentional connection changed the ENTIRE trajectory of her business. Please share your stories, I love hearing them! STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019 .08

Connecting with Your Couples with Purpose as taught by Mallory McClure I am honored to be here today to talk to you about authentically connecting with your couples. Being a wife and mother has definitely taught me a lot about relationships and I have found it extremely beneficial to integrate those qualities into my business. How to create the relationship Be honest with yourself and understand there are different seasons of life for everyone Figure out who you are as an artist so others can clearly understand your business Find out who your type of ideal client is and speak/cater to them Look inside yourself (likes, dislikes, hobbies, beliefs, etc.) Create an identity for your ideal client (don’t be afraid to get detailed!) Be honest and personal EVERY TIME you communicate with your potential client. In person, website, social media, email, phone, etc. Figure out a way that fits your business style to stay in touch with your couples throughout the process Be personal as well as for business .11 STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019

Accountability in Action Q. Why is it important to create relationships with purpose? A. It’s all about being comfortable with one another because the more relaxed everyone is,the more authentic and truer to nature your photographs will be. I want my couples to look back at their time with me and think “That was so much fun!” and when they look at their photographs “That is so us!” Q. How do we make them feel comfortable? A. Be personable with them. Use every opportunity you have to speak to a couple to be real and honest. From the first time they read through your website to your most recent Instagram post to the first time you talk on the phone or meet for coffee. Top 3 takeaways from this presentation that you can implement immediately: 1. Make sure to decide on who your ideal client is and then look at your marketing style to see if that aligns with your visions of your ideal couple. Don’t be afraid to take a long hard look inside yourself first. It’s important to know who you are as an artist so you can provide a clear vision of what you’ll be providing to your clients. 2. Find a way that works with your style to keep in touch and share about yourself with your couples throughout the time leading up to their wedding day. No matter your style of communication, try and check in with them and give them a glimpse into your life, too. 3. Use social media to stay connected with your couples. Like their posts, share memories from their special day, send a private message to let them know you are thinking of them (happy birthday, anniversary, congratulations, etc).  Social media connections can be used to grow closer to your couples leading up to the event but can also keep the relationship going long after the event is over.

A Field Guide for What to expect A styled shoot is a prime opportunity for photographers to get images that they need for their portfolios, beyond that it is also a wonderful way to expand knowledge and meet new friends. Keep an open mind [and heart] when attending a shoot and it will be worth the time/financial investment. Here are some quick beginner tips & rules of etiquette [no matter how long you've been doing shoots]: NEWBIE TIPS ETIQUETTE FOR EVERYONE do your research, be sure to choose respect others and remember shoots that have an aesthetic that everyone needs a shot, be matches your brand & ideal client considerate of those around you ask around, find out if the organizer ask if you can help someone else if has a good reputation before you you see them struggling invest do not go rogue! follow the leader calibrate your lenses before you when your time is up, step aside for arrive the next person question if you will have the shoot for others as much as you opportunity to shoot as lead shoot for yourself (get shots for the expect to make friends vendors) ask for help if you need it .15 STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019

Shot Checklist What to shoot Each vendor is a creative and contributes to a shoot because they want to enhance the portfolio layout of the experience they present to their own clients. Think about what a future Bride or Groom may want to see when looking through each vendor’s galleries. Below is a shot list for each vendor, but these are not meant to be all-inclusive, they are unique ideas to get your creativity flowing. Feel free to share any of your own creative ideas within our FB group. For your shot lists - Any chance you can, add people in to the inanimate product shot list. Clients like to see how a product is used and how it enhances their event/experience. It is likely that many of these vendors won’t have these shots and they will be grateful that you’ve taken the time to present their products in an innovative way! Invitations / Calligraphy Don’t be afraid to experiment, try something new calligrapher addressing invite woman/man reading invite (tight shot, hands only) woman/man reading invite (medium shot, smiling) woman/man responding to RSVP (hand-filling blanks) woman/man mailing RSVP (in street clothes) Bride holding invite (in gown) Cake / Sweets Cake & sweets have become little works of art--showcase them cake artist delivering cake full table view of cake / sweets Bride & Groom seeing cake for the first time Bride & Groom cutting & eating cake Florist Flowers are a sign of luxury and should be featured on the site of any vendor whose IC is a high-end Bride florist making delivery florals on cake Bride receiving bouquet (happy expression) Bride / Maids admiring flowers.

Once Upon a Dream Mallory McClure Photography Ellen & Andy .20 STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019

the story of us as shared by Ellen Ellen and Andy met during the summer of 2012, while working as camp counselors at the Pennsylvania Lions Beacon Lodge Camp in Mount Union, Pennsylvania. After the first week, the two went out on their first date to one of Ellen's favorite hangouts as an undergraduate at Juniata College. That same night they stayed up texting and mutually decided to begin dating. The rest is history… Their relationship remained long distance for about two years, including Ellen's four months studying abroad in Seville, Spain. Upon discussion of their plans for the future, Ellen and Andy recognized their mutual ambitions to further their education and decided to enroll in a graduate program within the Department of Counseling and Development at Slippery Rock University. As the start of their graduate school careers approached, Ellen and Andy made plans to join her family on vacation in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina the summer of 2014. Ellen was unaware of Andy's true intent and on the afternoon of June 26th the two took a walk on the beach along with much of her family. Consumed by the intent to look for seashells, Ellen was unobservant of the cameras being readied for the big moment. Upon hearing \"What about this shell?\" Ellen turned around to find Andy down on one knee holding a seashell in his hand with a beautiful diamond ring inside. She of course responded YES! After a three year engagement and the completion of their graduate degrees, Ellen and Andy married on June 10, 2017 at First Lutheran Church in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. First Lutheran Church has a significant meaning in Ellen’s life, as her paternal grandfather served as an ordained minister there for over forty years. A rustic, yet elegant wedding reception was held at Green Gables Restaurant in Jennerstown, Pennsylvania following the ceremony. Presently, Andy and Ellen reside in York, Pennsylvania where they have both pursued careers in the mental health field. Ellen currently works as an outpatient therapist providing both drug and alcohol and mental health counseling, while Andy serves at risk youth as a family based therapist. The couple has been happily married for over two years and has future dreams of buying their first home together and starting a family of their own. STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019 .20

KATIE & FLOYD FROM BROKE TO BOOKED We are Katie & Floyd, a husband & wife photo/video team specializing helping photographers build a sustainable and profitable booking system so they can build the business of their dreams. We believe starting a business isn't a way to \"get rich quick\" and we know it requires a ton of work and sacrifice, yet it doesn't have to be hard or stressful. There was a time in our life—and not that long ago: Where we were scraping change to get by. We had to write out our bills every week and choose the most important ones to pay because there was always more month left at the end of the money. We were stressed out and losing faith in being a business owners.  Thinking maybe it wasn't “in our cards”...well, that couldn't have been farther from the truth. .23 STYLED SHOOT MAGAZINE / SPECIAL EDITION 2019

Image courtesty of Reflective Light-by Nicole the story of us Image courtesty of Reflective Light-by Nicole as told by Suzanne  Abe and I met playing Volleyball (something we both loved at that time) at my church. It was not love at first sight, although I liked his volleyball skills and he liked my legs we became friends and spent a lot of time together for about a year until one day he asked if I wanted to ride along with him to a job in Harrisburg. That drive somehow turned into us going on an actual date later that evening. We dated for almost a year after that and he eventually asked my Dad (for his blessing on our marriage), something (that may seem super old-fashioned, but it was important to me. One day he came to my house, in the middle of the week during a work day, and I was suspicious (wink). He asked if I wanted to go on a walk down my lane to a bridge nearby. So that's what we did and when I turned to look at the water, he dropped to one knee with a ring in his hand! Of course I said yes and the rest is history.
