I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, i’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; i recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the breakfast club soundtrack.

Midsummer Night’s Dream

October 28, 2013

These images are more than photographs from a styled shoot. There is so much more present here than lush florals, delicious edibles, and gorgeous models. The pictures here represent a labor of love, the dreams of creatives and friends coming to fruition.

At the heart of the event, The Shoot Share was an opportunity for photographers of all levels and experience to come together and network, build friendships, and photograph our stylings to use for their portfolios. It was Ashley and my desire to give back to an industry that has given so much to us, and it was through Amanda’s styling genius and attention to detail that it all came together. We have been overwhelmed with the reception of our first Shoot Share event (thanks to the support of our faithful attendees and 100 Layer Cake for featuring the event for publication!) and we are so excited to see what the future has to hold for this side of our businesses.

We learned so much from hosting this event, and although it didn’t go exactly as planned (because as you know, we can’t predict the weather) the event taught us nothing if not how to dance in the rain! Without further adieu, I give you my images from the first edition of The Shoot Share, a Midsummer Night’s Dream. Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0001 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0002 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0003 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0004 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0005 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0006 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0007 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0008 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0009 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0010 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0011 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0012 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0013 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0014 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0015 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0016 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0017 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0018 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0019 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0020 Nikki Santerre Photography_Midsummer Nights Dream Styled Shoot_The Shoot Share_Mankin Mansion Wedding Shoot_0021Erica, girl, the event wouldn’t have been without you!
