    Episode 7: "Successfully Plan a Styled Shoot"

    Episode 7: "Successfully Plan a Styled Shoot"

    Does planning stress you out? Whether you're planning a styled shoot, portrait session or a large event, planning goes into everything a photographer does! This episode begins a series where we discuss how to plan successful shoots.

    On today's episode Brooke & Austin are joined by our friend Sharee the owner of 'Couture Events by Sharee' based in Charlotte, NC. 

    Sharee joins us today to discuss how she got her start in the wedding & event industry and how those experiences have contributed to her success as a business owner today. We specifically ask Sharee about how styled shoots can be not only beneficial for our portfolios and getting us more clientele but also how we can better plan them so that they can be successful! In fact one of the most important tips she shares with us today is how important it is to have clearly defined roles, but keep listening because Sharee gives us many more gems on today's episode!

    Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in the industry but she also gives back to her community! She founded 'Mint to Be' which is an organization that educates, empowers and gives back to single pregnant women in need. Follow her Instagram @mint_to_be so that you can donate gifts for her first annual Mint to Be baby shower for single moms to be in Charlotte, NC.

Very Practical Tips

I enjoyed this episode very much. Although I am not a professional photographer, I do have other business projects that I have to take pictures for(due to limited start up costs and the pandemic). The reinforcement to play with the settings and move until I get a good angle are tips that I will definitely be using for the shots that I take for my boutique.

10/10 would recommend

Am I a photographer? No, but fr this is such a great podcast! You can really tell Austin and Brooke care about their craft. This is such a great platform to share tips, tricks and real life moments, especially as black photographers. Definitely love hearing your different perspectives.
