I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had at this event.  But first I need to explain.  What is a “shoot out”?, you ask.  I’ll let Bre Greiger (creator) explain!

HELLO LUXE SHOOT-OUT

\HƏ-ˈLŌ\ˈLU̇KS \ˈSHÜT-ˌAU̇T\

noun informal

: an event that brings bloggers, influencers, photographers, make-up artists, brands and vendors for one day to collaborate, network and build their content image library for use on social media and their portfolios. Location of the Hello Luxe Shoot-Outs are always at cool + hip spots local to attendees. Additionally, Bloggers and Photographers will have access to a wide range of props and products to achieve the best potential outcome for exposure for all attendees, sponsors and vendors across all social media platforms. Lastly, attendees have the option to network and mingle with each other post shoot. It’s more than a collaboration; it’s a Hello Luxe Shoot-Out.

Genius, right??  When she advertised on a blogger Facebook group, I immediately said SIGN me up.  The event took place on a Sunday afternoon at the amazing Moxy Hotel in Tempe.  I had done a shoot there in the past and loved the vibrant, cool, and stylish vibe it had.  This Marriott brand boutique hotel has a walk up bar/front desk, stylish lounge areas, 24/7 self-service lounges and a pool area worth being seen in.  I knew that this would be the BEST place to inspire the creatives who would be flocking the hotel on a Sunday afternoon.

Bre (Hello Luxe Shoot-out Creator) kept us well informed and prepared for the event day.  The organization she displayed before and during the event was phenomenal.  The bloggers were asked to arrive an hour before the shoot out to either get their makeup done or to prep all their shoot clothing.  We were given a conference room to change and prep our clothes in.  We had a central station, which was the lounge of the hotel, to report back to at every rotation.

I chose the option to have my makeup done and my makeup artist was Dolly from Vidogi Salon.  She was super sweet and she honestly ROCKED my makeup.  I asked for a bronze summery look because my outfits were mostly dresses for summer.

Once we were done with makeup, we changed and reported to our central station to pair off in groups.  Each blogger (7 of us) was assigned to a group of photographers per rotation.  Each group had around 3-4 photographers who would shoot you for approximately 20 minutes.  At the end of 20 minutes, we would run back to our changing room and had 10 minutes to report back to central.  This went on for 7 rotations (7 outfits) and boy did it go fast.  I was definitely exhausted by the 5th rotation but managed to push through.

Here is one outfit from the shoot:

  1. You always wear hats so nicely, Melissa. Love this Panama straw hat as it goes with everything. Your wedges are great too. I am dying over that palm print mini dress though. I shared a neon pink palm print dress, in my latest post, also. =)

    I’d love for you to stop by and share your awesome style in my brand-new Thursday Moda linkup this week (link below). Over 100 ladies link up each week! Thank you pretty lady and enjoy your weekend!
