Be a part of our next project: Style Me Pretty’s Inspiration to Reality

Starting right now, Style Me Pretty is offering its readers an opportunity to see their inspiration boards come to life!

Here’s what Abby had to say about “Inspiration to Reality”:

We had such a blast with our From Inspiration to Reality Challenge that we’ve decided to make it a regular feature on SMP! We have vendors lined up from now until February who are super excited to turn your inspiration boards into a real life photo shoot, complete with tons of inspirations and ideas that can be translated into a perfect wedding. Leading up our next team is Agnes Lopez, a brilliant photographer out of the Southeast. Together with Liza Chung (event designer and florist) and Eric Torres (cinematography), the team is going to choose their favorite Style Circle inspiration board to bring to life!

I’m so happy to be a part of this and am even more excited to see what SMP readers have in mind for their inspiration boards. To enter, head over to the Style Circle and create an inspiration board.

From POSE WELL: Test shoot with Kelsey

This post is syndicated from my commercial photography blog: POSEWELLblog.com. To see my commercial portfolio check out POSEWELL.com.

You may recognize the model, Kelsey. I’ve photographed her a few times over the past two years. Since I first photographed her she has signed with agencies in Miami, Orlando, and New York.

She had been traveling a lot recently but she came into town to do a test shoot with me and give me the opportunity to run my new equipment through some paces. I always love working with Kelsey because she’s got a versatile look and knows what she’s doing in front of the camera!

I had a great team for this shoot. Jackie Neal did the makeup and Grazyna Mercado (Salon d’Orsay) did the hair.

We went for a demure look for these shots, something completely different from the first set.

Kelsey wanted some natural, almost raw headshots. No retouching was done on these!
