If I were to tell you that there are hundreds of wedding and portrait photographers in and around southern NH, then you would probably assume that competition is fierce, right?
While this may feel like the case for some individuals, those who have decided to embrace the Rising Tide Society’s mantra of ‘community over competition’ would argue the exact opposite. Back in September, we joined the Manchester chapter of this international organization with the hope of connecting with others in the creative world, but what we’ve received and experienced has provided so much more than mere connections in the wedding industry.
As a busy mom of two toddlers (and three rescue pups), I find my time very limited, and I was struggling to balance time with friends and pursuing business opportunities in the evenings and on weekends. What I did not expect was that by joining the Manchester Rising Tide Society, I would be able to experience both friendship and business growth all in one, and this past Monday this ‘marriage’ resulted in a beautiful styled shoot and collaboration and pure fun.
Ashley Clay of Eventfully Yours aptly named this styled shoot “Funky in Bloom” as the vision and decor (provided by Inspiration Rental, Special Events of New England, LLC, and Inspiration I Do) and food (provided by Custom Eats + Sweets) and floral work (provided by Sorella Flower Company) and makeup (done by Premiere Makeup + Hair) and models blended the worlds of traditional and edgy weddings perfectly and all in the same location – the beautiful Mack’s Apples in Londonderry, NH!
Don’t believe me? Check out a sample of the photos below, and you’ll see exactly what I mean!
We can’t thank everyone enough for allowing us to participate in such a fun and inspiring photoshoot! We can’t wait to continue to collaborate with all of you!
