Styled Shoot | Crystal Barn Country Estate

Derryn Schmidt Photography - Crystal Barn Styled shoot, KZN Midlands, South Africa

Earlier this month I took part in a styled shoot at Crystal Barn in Fort Nottingham KZN. What is a styled shoot you might ask? Well that’s a good question because it means a lot of different things to many different people and I would imagine for a non-industry person it can be a bit confusing to see photos of a ‘fake wedding’. For me though, it’s a collaborative shoot allowing participants to showcase their best work in what is basically a staged wedding.  It’s an opportunity for like minded individuals to come together and collaborate and to put out work that is aimed not at pleasing a paying client, but rather to build up their portfolio. A styled shoot may also serve as inspiration, allowing industry professionals to show planning brides what they predict to be up and coming trends. I hope that these photos inspire :)

There were a lot of people on this shoot who I hadn’t worked with before and so I was pleased for the opportunity. Crystal Barn is a hot new wedding venue in The Midlands who are about to reveal their renovated venue boasting a sexy double story bridal suite and a forest ceremony area. I’m so excited to shoot my first wedding there in April 2017. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that big website reveal. Thank you Kate for co-ordinating the shoot and inviting me to participate.
