Royal Blue Geode Inspired Wedding | Richmond, VA Hope Taylor Workshop

Each workshop I host, I get to work with such an incredible creative team and I feel so lucky. Caroline of Posh PR leads a team of the industry’s top vendors in Richmond to put together a DREAM of a shoot for all of the workshop attendees! This go-around, we wanted the shoot to have bright, rich blues and a unique color palette. We decided to use blue geodes as our inspiration and I LOVE how the shoot came together!

Remy and Eli (who you may recognize from their engagement session and wedding blog posts!), traveled all the way to Richmond, VA from North Carolina to be our bride and groom models!!! They are used throughout my presentation as examples for posing that I use to teach attendees all day…so it goes without saying that everyone was SO excited when they walked in!! 🙂 Enjoy some of my favorites from our day one styled shoot (and see the full workshop recap HERE if you haven’t already!)

I owe a HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful vendors who participated in this breathtaking shoot:
