Christmas Themed Style Shoot 2019

I love Christmas!  It is by far my favorite holiday so when I saw an opportunity to do a Christmas themed style shoot I knew there was no way I was going to pass that up. Christmas in Phoenix, Arizona is a first for my wife and I. It certainly feels a bit odd without the snowy winter cold we are used to in NE Ohio (which we don't miss by the way). Of course we are missing our families but we are enjoying the new experiences a South West Christmas can bring.  

It was 66 degrees and sunny on December 19th in Gilbert, Arizona for this styled shoot, but the set up and details made it feel like I was back at home.  Styled shoots are a great opportunity for a group of creatives to come together and make their awesome ideas a reality.  Collaborating with other photographers, cake decorators, planners and many other vendors is a great networking opportunity and learning experience for everyone.  I love to learn new things and implement them into my work however I can to be more creative. 

Thank you to everyone who came out to the styled shoot and put in the hard work to make it happen!  Check out the list of talented vendors below and also a link to my full styled shoot gallery below that.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
