I loved attending their styled shoot! Before the shoot I was contemplating quitting my day job and going full time with photography. I didn’t have too many wedding images and attending this shoot allowed me to showcase my ability to clients and gave them a focus on weddings. Within eight months of attending their styled shoot I went full time as a wedding photographer and had a crazy packed wedding calendar.
I HIGHLY recommend to new photographers, someone who just wants a fresh perspective and to photograph parts of a wedding in a more peaceful environment than the real deal or anyone who’s in a style rut and just wants to enjoy themselves and do something creative.

They created a wonderful experience for attendees!! The details were thoughtfully curated, locations were strategic within the high end greater Houston market, the couples were sweet as pie too!! More than anything, they went above and beyond to welcome attendees and provide a fun environment for artistic souls to create! Wishing the team & everyone who attends so much joy on their journey!

Their execution and organization were flawless, not to mention the wonderful vendors and models they bring for us photographers to play around with! Their emphasis on timed rotating stations mimics a photographer's workflow through an actual wedding, allowing beginners to get a sense for the urgency without the risk. They are quick to give suggestions for shots but also know to leave the bulk of the creativity to the shooters. I would highly recommend their styled shoots to anyone, novice and veteran alike.

I’m a wedding photographer and Reed’s styled shoots are hands down my favorite! He’s so organized, the models he gets are the best, and every single vendor goes all out to make the styled shoot beautiful! I’ve done some other styled shoots before his and after doing 2 of his, I understand what a real styled shoot should be like! I’ve been to a few other styled shoots that weren’t Reed's and his are hands down the best! I always feel comfortable and know exactly where to go and what to do with his direction and organization. The photos I have from his shoots are always the ones I use front and center of all marketing collateral and ads! If you’re on the fence about investing in a styled shoot, seriously invest in Reed’s!! You won’t regret it!!
