• The Sugar Shoot

something else has taken over Wedding Wednesday!  I was going to post something for WW but I just couldn’t wait to announce the “Sugar Shoot Workshop”!!!!! This is an amazing opportunity for photographers that is coming up in MARCH!! I’m so excited I could dance right here in my office! (it doesn’t help that I’ve been nibbling on the candy and have a TON of sugar in my system! I’m a little high-strung today! ) So today I am officially announcing my sugary, sweet workshop that will be happening in exactly 2 months! I have the most incredible people helping me with this! I can’t thank THE SWEET SPOT enough for this

amazing opportunity!  This CANDY THEMED workshop has been an evolving idea for a while now and I can’t wait to see it take shape. Between our gorgeous model, the dreamsicle color scheme and the details that we’re getting together, this is going to be one beautiful shoot! The BEST part about this workshop is that we will be holding the stylized shoot INSIDE THE CANDY SHOP! How cute is that?! And to make this day even better, the wonderful Janie Medley from The Brides Cafe will be our guest speaker and will also be providing some amazing florals! Be sure to read below for ALL of the details about how to reserve your seat!

Workshop Information:

WHO: There are 15 spots available for any photographer that currently owns or is about to launch a professional photography business. Attendees must provide their own digital SLR and should have a basic knowledge of manual settings.


WHEN: March 19th, 2011 | 9am – 6pm


WHAT: Thanks to the AMAZING ladies at The Sweet Spot in Shortpump Village, we will be spending our shooting time inside of their adorable, retro-mod styled candy shop! We will have a bridal model and table displays all themed around the candy shop and it’s going to be SUPER CUTE!! Throughout the day we will be discussing business basics, blogging vs. advertising, editing essentials and various shooting  techniques.  Last but certainly not least, we will have the fabulous Janie Medley from The Bride’s Cafe speaking on blogging/publishing from an editor’s perspective! How awesome is that?! I can’t wait!!

    If only I wasn’t living in Southern California – I would be THERE! Next year, I’ll make a trip out of it. haha

  22. Kat reply

    Please say your gonna have another one. I would love to come to one. Even all the way from KS.

  23. michelle brooks reply

    kately, you KNOW I’ve been drooling for a workshop from you(!) so take this question as a reluctant hesitation to enroll– how much of this workshop will be dedicated to your helping with manual techniques and how to achieve that clarity & POP of your images? It sounds like a great workshop, I just would like to know if you’re going to have the lion’s share of teaching, cuz that’s what I’m dying for! Thanks!
