Bridal/groom details and flat lays! Some of us go all heart eyes over the details, and some of us cry inside. Our goal at The Styling Collective is to get everyone into that first group of people. Bridal/groom details are the keystones to the wedding day. Often times there are family heirlooms, hours of work, and special possessions, included in the details. It's our job as the wedding photographer to bring their story to life. This is the first taste of the wedding day, your chance to warm up and get ready for the day. It's also an opportunity to get to know your couple even more. Do they have more stories they haven't shared with you? Do you stand on more common ground than you knew? The details are the answer. Not only are they pretty, but they lay the foundation for the story that your couple's wedding day tells.
The Styling Collective was built for photographers and stationers (really anyone who photographs flatlays!) at all parts of the journey. Those just starting out, who want to know #allthethings. Those who have been in the industry for five years and feel like their galleries are missing something. Those who are even 10+ years in and maybe want to know what the heck is up with these vow books! All levels of education are welcome, and all will leave feeling confident in styling those details. Each workshop includes education, styling practice stations, and styled shoots put together carefully for gorgeous portfolio work.
We also have poured months of work into an amazing resource for wedding day panic moments, or maybe you're not a photographer but still want to photograph these items beautifully and easily! I want to share the Styling Blueprint Cards!! These cards come in a few series: Vertical, Horizontal, Maker, and some future projects are already in the works! We could tell you so many things about them, but we will just say that if you struggle with photographing flatlays or details at all, these are for you. We also walk through creating shapes, movement, color theory, etc., in photos. There is even a special Youtube Channel for our students! Have we peaked your interest yet?
"These cards are game changing! I started using them because I NEEDED to step up my styling game, but I couldn't find education ANYWHERE! No one really teaches you how to make details look pretty and I'm not one to be able to just see other people do it and go 'oh I get it.' I am now using these cards every time I shoot a wedding or want to get better, I've made flat lays that look just like the cards but it's also encouraged me to do my own thing--must have!"

"You NEED The Styling Collective’s Styling Blueprint Cards. They make styling so much easier, especially for me, a stationer, who doesn’t easily master flat lays and photography. Often times, I spend way too much time working on the perfect layout of a flat lay, but with these cards, I am able to style everything quickly and easily! To anyone that styles flat lays, these are a must!!!!"

"Purchasing the styling blueprint cards was one of the best things I have ever done! I absolutely love styling details on a wedding day. However, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming when you are on a limited time frame. I love that I can flip through the cards and pick one that works best with the number of invitation pieces I have! Following the card, I can use the details I have provided by the couple to create a beautifully styled flat lay in a quarter of the time!!! I recommend the cards to anyone and everyone I talk to who feels overwhelmed when it comes to styling flat lays on a wedding day!!"
