Maine Boudoir Chalet Shoot

May 25th, 2010  |  by  |  published in Featured, Mingle

What do you get when you combine eight gorgeous women with six luxurious and eclectic bedrooms in a stupendous vacation rental placed at the top of a winding road in the mountains of western Maine?

Shootstyle found out.

An incredible last minute opportunity was dropped in our laps to shoot at Ski Esta. We used every nook and cranny we could find, including the indoor swimming pool and various showers and a bubble bath.

Four guest photographers from around Maine and Massachusetts, Chris Rielly, Shannon Post, Sierra Jackson, Carol Savage and Kim Calakoutis joined ShootStyle members Andree Kehn, Earl Christie, Stacey Doyle and Michelle Turner for part of the day.

Jamie Wexler’s workshop “Rainy Days and Mondays”

May 16th, 2010  |  by  |  published in Featured, Mingle

We had a great turnout for Jamie Wexler’s workshop “Rainy Days and Mondays” in Worcester, MA, today. Jamie intentionally chose a venue that was not pretty and not ugly enough to be funky and interesting, but rather kind of boring and nondescript, because we’ve all been stuck there for a wedding. What do you do when you need to make gorgeous photos and the location is craptacular?

We invited 14 photographers from around New England and we crawled all over this hotel. Here is a sneak peak of the workshop participants in action.

New England Destination Weddings Tips

May 6th, 2010  |  by  |  published in Featured, Style

Many New England couples are thinking locally when choosing a destination for their wedding away from home. Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as coastal Maine, Newport, and the green mountains of Vermont are great getaways that are close enough to visit in the planning stages of your wedding, yet offer a unique and special twist to your destination wedding.

To ensure your wedding day is just as you dreamt, here are some suggestions from Nicole Whelden, Owner of Unique Nantucket Events.

Planning destination weddings are often stressful, so to make sure it all turns out the way you hoped, remember to establish a budget and what you would like to see at your wedding first. Once that is done it will be easier to choose locations, caterers, photographers and florists. If you do not have a wedding coordinator you should visit the destination and scout out venues for your wedding, the biggest mistake couples make is booking a location sight unseen. If you cannot make it to the location, having someone you trust to look at sites is the best way to get what you want for your destination wedding. Also meeting with your vendors is important, you want their personalities and visions to match yours for the big day, be sure to put your own style into the event. Nicole recommends a visit to the destination at least 4 to 7 days in advance so that you can get comfortable with your surroundings and enjoy your time locally. It is important to remember that all destination weddings should be planned 6 months to a year in advance to ensure your guests get the best accommodations and travel to the location is established. The biggest advice Nicole can give is “Don’t stress if you’re not having fun seek the help of a friend, family member or wedding planner to ensure that the entire event runs smoothly; Remember it is your day!”
