Candace + Jonah - Styled and stunning
Styled shoots aren’t something we get to do very often. If were being completely honest, with the move and the newness and all the responsibilities of the business side of things, we haven’t had the time. But we couldn’t turn down an opportunity to shoot with this incredible team of vendors.
If you’re in the Charlotte/Lake Norman area, you may recognize Candace as one of the faces of Erin Padgett Events. Im sure Candace would tell you that, much like most wedding vendors, she prefers to be on the other side of the camera, but I’m here to tell you just how incredible her and her boyfriend Jonah did modeling at this shoot. They snuggled up just like we asked them to, and acted as though this is just normal for them. The whole shoot was a blast with them! Their personalities are a perfect match for one another and it genuinely felt as if it was a normal with a couple madly in love (I guess it technically was...)
As for the vendors who actually styled this shoot (comprehensive list below), its safe to say this is the dream team in the area. From the dress to hair and makeup, not to mention the floral arrangement… you’d think we were shooting this specifically for a magazine! Special thanks to Rural Hill for letting us use their land to shoot on. This place was Gorgeous! And of course, the shoot wouldn’t have even happened if not for Erin and Candace from Erin Padgett Events. Thank you all so much for having us on this shoot!
