The Principles of Styling workshop is mixture of lecture and hands-on learning. In the morning I gave a lecture on the principles and talked about how to style detail shots as well as how to produce full editorials. Then, photographers put into practice what they learned at the “styling stations.” Finally, there were two sample editorials for photographers to capture. The next workshop will likely be this fall (though it can be taken in a one-on-one format too), you can visit here for more information.

For my sample editorial, I was inspired by the preppy look of the barn at Hammersky Vineyards, so I styled a chic Hampton’s inspired BBQ. First, I picked a blue and white striped linen as the jumping off point for my table.For a punch of spring color, Lavenders Flowers arranged centerpieces with daffodils, narcissus and sweet peas. In between the flowers I styled with platters of homemade mini corn muffins with honey, classic corn on the cob, pork sliders, a farmers market salad, and pitcher of lemonade. Place settings featured sleek spartan plates and classic bone flatware from The Ark. For the model, I chose an off the shoulder white blouse and cute navy blue sailor shorts from Anthropologie paired with modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry.  

A special thanks to Hammersky Vineyards for hosting us at their beautiful property and to all the vendors who contributed to the workshop! And be sure to check out the feature on a 100 Layer Cake right here.

Last fall, the lovely Sally Pinera invited me to come prop style the still life elements on her California wedding styled inspiration editorial shot in the stunning Morro Bay. For the invitations and floral details, I used a soft blue linen layered with white gauze to create a perfect seaside feeling backdrop. Sally brought great shells, loose sea salt, and amazing invitations written on capiz shells by The Little North Sea Studio. I layered the invitations and then drifted a trail of salt throughout the scene. I used the same idea, the trailing salt, at each place setting as well. For the boutonnieres by Poppy Design Co.,  I layered a piece of coral over a handmade soft blue ceramic charger from The Ark.

The Principles of StylingPhotos by Caroline Tran
Hands-On Styling Workshop

This past March I had the pleasure of teaching my first styling workshop. I lectured about how I put together an editorial shoot and create the prop list. I also talked about how I art direct shots so it feels real and authentic for both lifestyle and wedding editorials. Then students had the opportunity to style their own shots at our “styling stations” and apply what they learned. Caroline Tran was on hand to shoot student work and capture this editorial. Solstice Bride provided a classic ballgown by Delphine Manivet and then a elegant sleeved gown by Elizabeth Dye.
