The Golden Creative

The Golden Creative is a styled shoot company for photographers and videographers that are looking to grow creatively as a community. We focus on showcasing Southern California’s beauty, while fostering inclusivity and nurturing your creative growth.

A little bit about how it all started!

My friend Marissa and I met towards the end of 2021 and both wanted to plan a Halloween themed shoot together. We had such a fun time that we ended up planning a 90’s themed shoot and New Year’s Eve shoot! It was after the New Year’s Eve shoot that we had the idea of creating The Golden Creative so that other photographers could join in! We were so excited to start building a community and planning shoots that we went straight home and started sending each other ideas.

Fast forward to our first shoot!

After lots of planning we held out first styled shoot in Orange County on February 5th. We collaborated with some amazing vendors and models (tagged below) to put together two beautifully styled elopements. Check out the photos below to see what we created!

What’s next?!

Marissa and I are currently selling tickets for our second styled shoot! It will be on March 22nd in Los Angeles, California. We have four amazing couples that will be part of this shoot along with some vendors that we are very excited to work with! We’ll be having three couple’s shoots and one elopement!

Are there any other upcoming shoots?

We’re planning on having two more shoots in 2022. Both styled shoots are still in the early planning process.
