Last month I got to be part of an amazing event called Hello Luxe, it’s where blogger, brands and photographers meet up to collaborate and create beautiful images. Today, I’m giving you a behind the scenes peek at how we all work together to create amazing content for you!
I felt lucky to be part of the first Hello Luxe Shoot-Out! There was only 7 bloggers chosen and when I got the email I was one of them, I may have done a little happy dance!
Behind the Scenes: Photo shoot at The Moxy
The event was held at The Moxy Hotel in Tempe! It’s a cool new concept by Marriott where they create a fun, inviting vibe at an affordable price. “Unlike any other brand in its tier, Moxy is all about creating cool, energetic, communal spaces with a “crew” who helps guests have some fun.” You check in at the bar and are greeted with the Moxy cocktail, how cool is that?!?!? My favorite thing about this hotel is how inviting it feels. It’s set up with the cutest little areas that create environments for conversations. I loved the big table they had in the lobby. I love chatting with people and I could see myself meeting new, fun people there!
Learning from the Photographers
My favorite thing about this event was learning from the photographers! Each one had their unique style and I soaked it in! Lean in, turn your head toward me, look here, try this! All of which I was willing to do if it would make an amazing shot. I am so glad I trusted them and stepped out of my comfort zone. I learned new ways to pose and to think outside the box. I named Jess Legaspi, The Pose Master! She is so talented at putting me in the right position and then taking it a step farther by having me say me say the vowel sounds! Look at this photo!
Partnering with Brands
As a personal stylist, I love sharing the brands I love with you all. When I was chosen for this event I knew I had to find some fabulous pieces to share with you! I picked this navy off the shoulder floral dress from Dress Barn. I just love how feminine it is and how it worked with my hourglass body type. The photographers who photographed this dress made me shine! Here is one of my favorites from Shealin Ashely Photography.
