Meet the Models

Kathryn, Photographer

It was so beautiful! Plus the whole staff was so kind. This was my first ever styled shoot and it was an incredible experience. Thank you!

Madi, Photographer

I liked being able to work off of other photographers and learn from each other. I also love how fun and supportive the XO team was the whole night! I also loved being able to get new cool photos for my portfolio that I wouldn’t get at a typical wedding.

Samantha, Photographer

I loved seeing different posing styles from everyone and that it was a variety of vendors. I also loved  where we could all mingle!


Can you give more details about the daily schedule?

We are so glad you asked! Check out the full schedule with mood boards here. We will break up the groups so that you are rotating.


What are the group sizes?

There will not be more than 10 creatives in your group at a time. 

how will the shoot work?

Each group will have a lead photographer that has been appointed by XO. Each lead will call out the shots for approximately 10-15 minutes then will give everyone 5-10 minutes each to call out their own! If you get stuck, your lead is there to help. 

what if I want to reserve a hotel room?

Sure thing! We suggest staying in Hurricane. Super 8 and MyPlace are both affordable, nice (clean) options. You can still join us at the Airbnb for all the gatherings, which is less than 5 minutes away.
