A Santa Ynez Style Shoot

Wedding Style Shoot produced by Event Bliss


Life’s synchronicities continue to leave me humbled and grateful.  In December, I joined an accountability group and although the members only see each other via video conference once a week, one of the group members and I met for coffee one day to connect.  Last month (March), the Wellness Vixen brought me into a Wedding Style Shoot produced by Event Bliss in Santa Ynez at Sogno Del Fiore Winery and it was such a joy!  Working as an independent contractor and being self employed can sometimes feel lonely and so I really embrace every opportunity to work with others on a creative vision and watch it all come to life.  It is in working with a passionate, dedicated team that we can see how human potential in community is far greater than that of a single person.

It was a beautiful Tuesday in the Santa Ynez Valley and the shoot was a success thanks to the many vendors who provided the goods and an incredibly talented, creative team who were a pleasure to work with. I was honored to do makeup and work on the beautiful “bride” Annie and handsome “groom” Pat. Credits are listed below for the whole team and vendors.

Thanks to Videographer and Drone Master, Chase Paisley, the video from the day speaks to the beauty of it all!  (You'll see me in the beginning applying Annie's makeup ;))
