Out of the Box Challenge // Uncommon Goods

Out of the Box is a choose-your-own-adventure styled shoot challenge hosted by Catalyst and curated by Color Pop Events. Each team of vendors received a special mystery box filled with fun, beautiful, eclectic shoot supplies to be incorporated into a styled wedding shoot.

Based on the idea of play.

We started off with a completely different concept but opened our surprise box of goodies and realized quickly that we were going to have to rethink. The little lego figurine with hot pink hair made us all crack up, and right away we decided let's just get playful with this. In our original concept our models were representing people who have a bold aesthetic, live a lifestyle based around art and a union of different styles. We wanted that idea to remain but add more play and less controlled scenes. 80s glam meets boho.

Play. The idea of play is a form of connection, to each other and to their surroundings. We kept saying that in their world it would rain confetti. The wedding bouquet was edible. Hot pink and bold shapes. Swings, bubbles, ribbons, a hot pink bamboo altar, laughs, confetti frozen into ice, play. Anywhere you go in the world the happiest people you see are often the ones that know how to play, whatever that looks like to each person. It was fun. It was also fun to gather a group of dynamic, female, artists in the area to create together for the first time.
