Bridal Collaboration Shoot

We are so excited to share
this Collaboration Session with you.

A tremendous thank you to all of the collaborators who made this styled shoot a dream come true. Being wedding photographers in Namibia, we always try to keep up with the wedding industry trends and create new ones. This team of specialist impressed us with so much talent and creativeness, it was truly beautiful to photograph.

We can’t wait to collaborate with these talented individuals, again! We truly encourage our clients to find vendours who inspire you, who you love to work with, who spur you on to be the best you can be. One of the biggest rewards from working in the wedding and photography industry has been the friends we’ve made. We encourage, champion and support one another, and it’s a pretty special community to be a part of.

What is a styled shoot?

A “styled shoot” is a collective, group effort between suppliers from different facets of the industry who choose to come together to create and showcase their skills. As a supplier, this is a great chance to stretch your imagination, produce something that is 100% in line with your style and to meet and work with people you may not have worked with before (or often industry friends that you don’t get to work with on a regular basis).

We love the fact that you get a chance to LEARN from each other.  And, by attending a styled bridal photography shoot, it allows us to grow our wedding portfolio, and to attract future clients.

It was a beautiful day of learning as well as deepening our friendship and nurturing our creativity. Our perfect recipe for a dream wedding team would be spending a considerable amount of thought in picking your photographer, florist, venue, wedding planner and stylists. These are the pillars of a sensational wedding.
