A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of participating in the Hello Luxe Photoshoot with 6 other amazing bloggers, and so many amazing, talented photographers. The #CatchMeAtLuxe shoot was such a wonderful experience, and the images that the photographers grabbed of the bloggers there are to die for.What is the Hello Luxe Photoshoot? It's an amazing event where bloggers and photographers and influencers come together. Come see more!

This event was put on by Bre from The Sentimental Mama, the creator of the Hello Luxe Co. She put so much work into this and it was beyond anything that I could have imagined.

The photoshoot took place at The Moxy Hotel in Tempe, AZ, which was such a cute venue. If you live in the area, I highly suggest checking it out! Their whole theme is to make it as easy-going as possible, which is why their check-in is a bar, literally. You get a Moxy cocktail for being a guest! Yes, please:) It is also part of the Marriot chain, so the hotel staff and decor is really wonderful as well.

“Moxy is a boutique hotel with the social heart of a hostel. A free-spirited place where you can do all that crazy fun stuff you’d never think of doing at home, together with likeminded spirits you’d otherwise never have met. Yes, the WiFi is speedy and the cushy beds are freshly made, but more importantly, the bar is always open and the crew is always on. Whether you’re staying for the night or just a nightcap, you’ll see why it’s no place like home.”

The entire point of this shootout was for bloggers/influencers/photographers to work together and collaborate so that we can grow with one another. I cannot tell you how much I love this! One of my favorite parts about blogging is the huge community that it comes with. Here in Arizona, there is a gigantic blogging community and I loved getting to know so many local bloggers. This event also gave me the opportunity to meet a large group of the wonderful local photographers in this area (that I cannot WAIT to work with again).

Okay, I’ll stop talking now so that I can show you some of the fabulousness of this day!
