Challenge and self growth.
When I heard of Preston Castle in Ion, CA my first thought was where is that! Some photographer friends had done a photo shoot there in March. The pictures were so awesome it made me jealous! The castle opens its doors to photographers a 2-3 times per year. So once I confirmed the next open house date I immediately started putting a group together for a photo shoot.
Now to find models, a dress designer and makeup artists crazy enough to drive over 2 hours to a shoot! Photographers Karl Ko, Jennifer Low and I split the preparation tasks and put together a great group of participants.
Thanks to Iridescence Bridal (custom designs), Christine of Outburst Flowers, MSV video and Vanessa and Jennifer of Beauty Mark Ink for all their hard work. Also thanks to the other photographers (Jojo, Ashley Bates, Laena Brandenburg and Nicole Smith) that joined forces with us to give the event flavor.
Clark’s Corner Coffee House was generous to allow us use of their facility for makeup and dress preparation before going to the castle.
