Hickenlooper | Photo Native Photoshoot

This shoot, taught by Scott and Shelby HIckenlooper, might be one of the most shared Photo Native shoots on social media due to its gorgeous on-point boho style and incredible details. Photographed in Studio 1918 in Salt Lake City, this hands-on learning and shooting experience with a beautiful formal bridal couple focused on how to look for and use lighting options, methods of capturing genuine emotions, and effective posing techniques. The idea was to discover how to photograph details for vendors while also getting creative and shooting for yourself.

Vendors: Cake: Flour and Flourish / HMUA: Alex Crabtree Hair and Makeup / Florals: The Potted Pansy / Styling: Renata Stone / Dress: @altamodabridal / Models: Jaycee Grover River Grover / Photographers: @hickenloopers

I'll never forget this Native Shoot experience. Yes, we had 10 incredibly talented photographers all together shooting film. Yes, we had the opportunity to talk about photographing families on film and learn from one another. And yes, we all got some wonderful images. 

But, more than any of that, it was the family- this family- that impressed me the very most. In their TINY, love-packed home, there was such a sense of contentment and peace from the outside world that we could all immediately feel as we walked inside. Like shelter from the cold, cold January weather outside, this home was a literal haven, a safe and secure little space for this family to grow, learn, play, and love in. 

Beauty mama, Cate, even told me how a few years previously, they had lived in a much, much larger home elsewhere. But now, with far less square feet and far less possessions than they had before, they are infinitely more happy. "Just what our family needed," she told me. 

Less is truly more.
