I’ve always been on the creative side, whether doodling on my notebooks in class or the occasional craft project. I’d lock myself in my room for hours and sketch, however “artist” was never on my list of things to be “when I grow up.” I wanted to be a doctor or a marine biologist - like every other kid.
I decided to start a new hobby this past Summer. One that is only for me, and an outlet to release some pent up creative energy. I honestly went in to this thinking I'd create something worthy of a kindergarten art class and pleasantly surprised myself. I'm no #picasso but I think did "ok" for only having picked up a watercolor paint brush about an hour before this composition was completed...for this first time ever.
One of my favorite parts of being a wedding stationery designer is Styled Shoots. As a “behind the scenes” vendor, I’m not often in the mix with the “day of” vendors that tend to get center stage on the wedding day. By participating in a Styled Shoot, wedding vendors are able to come together for a full day of creative preparation and networking in an effort to put together a mock wedding/event.
One of my favorite parts of wedding stationery, is styling flatlay shoots for each couples wedding invitations. I’m able to bring in my aesthetic into the photography using my branding colors and keeping the look cohesive, while also displaying some of the beautiful paper my brides have chosen.
