small business // studio space in progress.

I mentioned it very briefly last month: Anna Delores Photography is getting a studio space!  I'm sharing the space with three other wedding vendors: Stella Bloom Designs, Leo Evidente Photographers, and A Charming Occasion.

We've been painting, investing in furniture, considering renovations, changing locks and lighting -- the works!

I am simultaneously shocked that it's happening so fast, and impatient for the day that everything is finished and we can really start working in there (and inviting all of you lovely people to help us celebrate its unveiling!).

Here's a little peek at what we've been up to in our studio...

The Anthropologie mugs in that last photo are gifts from Joelle!  She surprised us with monogrammed coffee mugs for each of us.  So fun.  We're also equipped with a new Keurig coffee maker, a bar cart (and some beer in the mini fridge -- an office-warming gift from Joelle's husband, Robert!), and a gorgeous, geometric-detail community table built from scratch by the incredible, multi-talented Leo (yes, he's also a photographer).  We're trying to convince him that he needs to start a side business selling his handmade dining tables.  They're breathtaking, and he came up with the design itself too.  Amazing!

We'll keep you posted as we continue progress on the studio space.  I feel so proud and fortunate to be a part of this Ventura County wedding vendor collective!  It's a wonderful community of lovely, talented individuals who share my passion for weddings (and are pretty much ALWAYS game to share a bottle of wine) -- does it get better than that?


  1. Oh my gosh, that table is gorgeous! He should definitely look into selling those. And congrats on your space coming together!
