A stylized gathering for creatives


the styled collective

The Styled Collective is a bi-monthly gathering that focuses on different creative fields within the wedding industry. The Styled Collective was birthed out of a place of wanting more. Wanting more creative freedom, wanting more diversity in our portfolios, wanting more of a chance to play in our creative fields without any boundaries telling us otherwise.

Our first Styled Collective is for photographers/videographers alike! Feeling stuck in your craft? Want to learn new techniques and skills? Looking for a chance to build your portfolio? The Styled Collective is calling your name.

So what does this gathering entail? Each photographer/videographer will be learning and watching Lauren, from We Are The Bowsers, work her skills during two separate shoots. Each attendee will also be given time to shine with the couple/subject on their own once Lauren concludes her teaching.

Our first Styled Collective gathering  will be held on July 25th and will be capped at 10 attendees. To attend this gathering, the cost is $275 that is due in full to hold your spot. To learn more, please find details below.

from Lauren, We are the bowsers

Lauren Bowser will help grow your portfolio while also teaching The Styled Collective Gathering attendees how to get real and authentic moments from couples and subjects alike. This gathering is for any and all photographers, no matter the skill level. 

Lauren will be live shooting while also talking through her posing techniques and explaining her camera settings along the way. 

Each attendee will have an opportunity to shoot the couple and subject while also trying out their own directing, while Lauren makes herself available for any questions while the other attendees wait for their time to shoot.



Portfolio building

2 separate shoots in 1 gathering

1st shoot:
The first shoot will include a Ceremony Set up, a Tablescape, a Bride + Groom, and detail shots.

2nd shoot:
The second shoot will include bridal portraiture with a separate subject and different details from the 1st.

There will be a colored back drop for portraits, a ceremony back drop, plenty of white wall, floral installments, rental furniture, and other areas/spots for photography to happen, to keep things diverse and fresh for each shoot.

Each attendee will have their own separate time to shoot during the two photoshoots. First, Lauren will educate and show specific ways in which she works, and then she will assign specific shooting time to each attendee.

So what will this gathering look like?!
-Our July gathering is centered around creating and capturing moments as a photographer. You will first watch Lauren demonstrate how she works with a couple to get real and authentic moments from them. Then each attendee will get their own time to shoot, while Lauren makes herself available for others to ask questions. Once the first shoot is completed, there will be a 15 minute break where snacks and refreshments are provided. Once the break concludes, Lauren will then continue her teaching while working on the next styled shoot. Once the second shoot concludes, Lauren will then offer 10 minutes to answer any final questions and the gathering will conclude!

What do you mean the Styled Collective will be held bi-monthly?
-Great question! We want to offer our gatherings bi-monthly to serve as a refreshing way for creatives to keep creating, to keep exploring their craft, to keep pushing the boundaries. We believe that creating for FUN can not only change one's perspective on their craft, but it can keep a creative feeling refreshed, recharged, and inspired to continue pursuing their dreams.

Our bi-monthly Styled Collective gatherings will offer different teachers, different set ups, and different aesthetics each time. We want things to be fresh and exciting and NEW for every attendee, every single time!
