The Gather Estate is a quaint and cozy wedding and event venue in Mesa, Arizona! It’s totally got that backyard feel, and it’s so modern and beautiful! My first time photographing at the Gather was for a succulent-themed styled wedding, and I’ve also attended a Christmas market there! The venue is so diverse and offers a lot of variety!
When I saw the opportunity to partner with some other local wedding creatives for a styled wedding shoot at the Gather, I couldn’t resist! Kylie with Material Girls Weddings is one of my favorites to work with (one of our past collaborations include the elegant Modern Farm shoot)! She always puts a lot of thought into the details, which my photographer heart appreciates! This styled wedding was a complete dream from the color palette to the florals to the sweet bride & groom!
It was so fun working with this fun bride & groom, and to see the beautiful works of art of the other vendors that contributed! Styled shoots are like one big collaboration, and I love meeting other photographers in the process as well. It’s a great way to network but also capture beautiful images! I also love styled shoots because it’s an outlet for me to have total creative freedom.
This boho-inspired garden wedding created some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken! The florals were so so gorgeous – huge shout out to Vicky of Flora-lish and Taylor of Cheeky Blooms for seriously going above and beyond on the florals for the bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, table scape, and arch! I could stare at them all day!
