Let me start off by explaining what a ‘shootout’ is. A shootout is an event which brings photographers together for photography, education, sightseeing, camaraderie, and fun. I hosted the Rustic Country Romance shootout in September and it was AMAZING! I partnered with Catherine of Today’s Sweet Weddings and I’m just over the moon with how things turned out. I had a vision in my head, and after consulting with Catherine, she got me. She took my vision, rolled with it, and turned it into this beautiful day. She and her team were so wonderful!
I opened our event up to other photographers! There ended up being 5 of us in total. Chloe, Beckie, Courtney, Ashleigh and myself. What a day! We got to know each other a little better, laugh with each other and create together! Check their websites and pages out to see their versions of the shootout!
Here are some of my images from the day.
I can’t thank everyone who helped along the way enough. Words can’t express the amount of gratitude I have for you all! Thank you so SO much!
