Plus a Few!

  • VA Photographers at WPPI

overwhelming. It just is. Even if you’re a people person… it’s a LOT! I’m definitely an extrovert…. I would talk to a TREE…. but at the end of the day at WPPI, I am SO ready to just lay in bed with my laptop and look at blogs (such a photographer….that’s what we do for “fun”).  At WPPI it can be hard to find specific people and I knew that if we didn’t have some type of meetup, the VA photographers would never find each other! There are some some VA photogs that I literally NEVER saw but I knew they were there (the MGM Grand is GINORMOUS!)! So Wednesday night we had a VA Photog WPPI dinner date at the Venetian!

At first I was a little worried about getting there…. it was definitely an adventure and Michael wasn’t there to be our tour guide. However! I feel like the adventure getting there was part of the fun! Everyone who attended had such great attitudes and really just wanted to hangout with other cool people!! It was an awesome break from the craziness of the convention and not to mention… the food was INCREDIBLE! Not only did we have awesome VA photogs join us… we had a few friends from Oregon and TEXAS and Southern Cal! So fun. This night will definitely be remembered as a WPPI favorite:).
