so, i've got some fun news to share! this summer i have been assisting stylist/ creative director of once wed, miss joy thigpen! i have been learning so many new and exciting things through working with her, and have been so lucky to meet so many crazy talented and kind people in the atlanta creative scene. she's been patiently and graciously showing me the ropes in the love business, and duh, i totally love it!
i've been on the fast-track learning flower-arranging, renegade flower-gathering in fields/forests/side of the road, plant and bug identification(ha!), prop-styling, fashion styling, budgeting, environmental 3D-installations, time-management(slowly and surely), photography and lighting tips and tricks, and all sorts of other interesting things- the girl does it all!
today she's sending me off on her behalf for my first solo styling gig and i've got the "first day of school" butterflies. we're shooting in a vineyard-holla! wish me luck, please???!!
p.s the best part of working in the love business, is witnessing creative couples get married. this last wedding we worked, i completely blubbered through their beautifully unique ceremony. and i didn't even know them. unconditional love is the jam.
