Styled Shoot | November 2013 Workshop Experience

  • Jewel Tone Winter Wedding

hardest part about the styled shoots at our workshops is that I can’t show the images immediately!! I loved absolutely everything about this shoot from our November workshop and I have been waiting to show it off for months now! Amanda from Anthomanic did it again! Her styling talent is just insane and I was blown away with this shoot! The colors, the theme, the models, the details… it was amazing from start to finish! Amanda has styled so many gorgeous shoots but this is by far one of my favorites and I’m so excited to share!!!

More of our Vegas Adventure!

  • WPPI 2014 Recap | Part Two

parts of our 15 day adventure to the west coast that just seemed surreal…. like the moment I saw my images displayed life-size at the PASS booth on the WPPI Tradeshow floor! Or the time I saw my name on the WPPI speaker list for the first time! And the moment Buddy and Jill walked into our hotel room after we spent a full day thinking that their flight was going to be cancelled!! So many amazing moments with amazing people. Michael and I have told so many people who have asked about our trip that it was exhausting but so exciting at the same time. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Creating Community Platform Class

  • WPPI 2014 Recap | Part One

you guys were right. I spent a lot of time freaking out about not having anyone show up to my talk and we had an amazing turnout this past Tuesday night! I still can’t believe it’s over and I can officially say that I spoke at one of the largest photography conferences in the world. That’s pretty exciting and I’m honored that I had this incredible opportunity!!! Now before I share some fun highlights of this experience, you have to hear this story. So, at WPPI, you can do something called “Pre-boarding”. This is when you signup to attend a class before the conference begins to claim a seat!
