At Lavender Blue, we do more than just floral design. In fact, one of our biggest passions is event styling! We love acting as Creative Director for weddings and events, but especially for styled shoots and editorials.

If you’re a photographer, maybe you’re wondering if hiring a stylist is worth it. After all, we’re guessing you have plenty of experience doing double-duty as the resident photographer and stylist! But what if we told you that hiring a stylist could uplevel your shoots by leaps and bounds? That not having to do it all will free up your time and attention to do what you love the most?

Stick around to learn more about the services we offer—and how they will change the way you shoot! Plus, preview samples of our work along the way.

Why hiring a stylist is a good idea for photographers

Hiring a Stylist Allows You to Focus on Photography

As a photographer, you’re an expert at paying attention to light and special moments. When you capture them with your lens, you create unforgettable images for your client! That’s why, on photoshoot day, your sole job should be behind the camera. 

Conversely, as art directors and stylists, we manage the design process. From set-up to the staging of every scene, we’re at your disposal! We allow you to focus on the overall concept you’re creating and the story you want to tell.

Instead of wasting your time tracking down vendors and positioning props, you get to sit back and watch us work. We have relationships with a network of trusted, local vendors for all of your photo shoot needs! Whether it’s hair and makeup, rentals, props, or wardrobe you’re looking for, we know a guy.

We’ll work tirelessly to find all the perfect elements to bring your vision to life for a fully styled shoot. Photographers often exclaim how stress-free their job was when our sessions are over!

“Lynda and I collaborated on a styled shoot and a fashion show. Her creativity and skills top that of any other florist. Her hard work and artistic abilities shine through in everything she creates. I would recommend her to all event coordinators and brides-to-be. She is wonderful to work with.”

Uplevel Your Styled Shoot

We get it—you’re an experienced photographer who’s worked on countless styled shoots and knows how to set things up! But, you also know how incredible it is to work with other passionate creatives who understand and help elevate your vision. Hiring a stylist will allow you to do just that!

At Lavender Blue, we work with intention and pour our hearts into every detail. From the flower selection to the lighting, it’s all important to us!

We believe that a good stylist is a good listener who can adopt your overall vision for a project and help you produce amazing results. Our job is to make your business even more appealing, whether your goal is capturing your ideal audience or getting your work published in print. 

By combining your experience as a visionary with the skills of an accomplished designer, you set your work apart from the competition!

“Lynda has such an eye for creating floral art pieces. You won’t find anything of hers done by other florists in town because she puts so much time and effort into each piece she creates. It shows that she absolutely loves what she does and has the experience to give you exactly what you’ve dreamed up.”

We Offer Fully Curated Styled Shoots & Events

As artists, we’re intimately familiar with the principal elements of design: balance, harmony, and contrast. We use them daily in our work! From that foundation of knowledge, we pour love and intention into everything we create. Whether we’re designing a real wedding or a styled shoot, we work to create a finished product that has texture, depth, and pleasing lines.

We also value community and working as a team with other creatives! Before the shoot begins, we’ll have vignettes set up, details arranged, and all necessary items gathered. At your request, we’ll also curate a wardrobe and accessories to create a complete visual narrative of your concept!

“Lavender Blue Floral is a pleasure to work with! She curates a vision and follows through— whether that’s infant flower tiaras, corporate event styling, or a bridal bouquet.”

Andi Vance, owner of Aporei Boudoir Lingerie
