So last week I shot my first event!
The event was with Rare Gem, an empowerment group and movement for all women. The brand hosts events all around Columbus to unify, network, educate, communicate, and collaborate with women of all shapes, shades, and sizes.
The creator, Rhadaja, did an amazing job, and it turned out great! She had makeup artists, photographers, a DJ, a performer, and other local entrepreneurs there to network and fellowship with one another. There was food, prizes/giveaways, music, and more. She is definitely putting Columbus on the map by embracing the entrepreneurship culture of women all throughout the city. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Rare Gem!
I had the pleasure of capturing this beautiful event along with my friend Jalisa, who introduced me to Rhadaja. Jalisa is another aspiring photographer/artist/everything (my girl does it all). Check out her Instagram to see all of her many businesses.
Overall, I had a great time and it was a dope learning experience. Photography is truly and art, and everyone has their own style. I’m learning how to shoot for different things, whether its an event, photoshoot, video-shoot, ect. Practice makes perfect, and this inspired me to do so much more!
Check out some of the moments below.
