Styled Wedding Photography Workshop – Central California

Styled Wedding Photography Workshop – Central California

What a whirlwind month last May was! I feel so blessed and lucky to have had so many great events to photograph and have been anxiously waiting to share more about my 5th styled wedding photography workshop!  I had received several emails over the past year to see if and when I would bring my photography workshop back to California, so with 6 weeks to put it together, I decided May was the perfect month weather wise and I’d be back in Bakersfield, so why not!  After enlisting the help of the amazingly talented Shannon Hough, owner of Shannon Hough Events I knew we’d have an incredible day to present to our attendees – and man, we were all so impressed and overjoyed with the gorgeous ‘wedding’ she pulled together!  Our attendees were spoiled with welcome drinks, snacks, personalized cakes, and a magazine full of tips and information from me.  We spent over 6 hours going through what it takes to be a wedding photographer as I shared so many of my tips and tricks for not only taking photographs but the behind the scenes of running a business!  We talked about, practiced and photographed wedding details, a First Look, a ceremony exit, a horse and carriage ride, an entire reception table, a 3 course meal and our bride and groom in two different outfits!  Whew!  We were all so happily exhausted by the time the day ended and couldn’t wait to eat the amazing meal NV Catering and Franco Baked created for us.  Literally the most delicious meal I’ve had in a very very long time! Thank you again...
Tuscany in Texas Austin Wedding Photography Workshop Part 2

Tuscany in Texas Austin Wedding Photography Workshop Part 2

I’m so thrilled that we’ve gotten so much love for this Tuscany in Texas styled wedding photography workshop! It’s my hearts dream to see ideas and concepts come to life with such talented vendors and to be able to provide an amazing canvas to teach from for all the attendees who joined us!  With this being my 4th styled wedding photography workshop (previous ones in Malibu, Santa Barbara and Bakersfield) I’ve got it down, but it always seems to go by too quickly!  Before I knew it the sun was setting and it was time to enjoy a delicious Italian dinner under the bistro lights and Texas sky while we all relaxed, got to know each other better and talked shop!  I’m so grateful to everyone who came, everyone who helped and made it run smoothly and I’m hopeful to put on another one in the fall or next Spring!  Enjoy this second half of the wedding photo shoot and have a wonderful Freyday!

Tuscany in Texas Austin Wedding Photography Workshop

Tuscany in Texas Austin Wedding Photography Workshop

Last Sunday, I had the honor and privilege of creating and teaching my 4th styled wedding photography workshop!  We transported everyone to Tuscany while staying in South Austin at the beautiful venue, Le San Michel.  After assembling an amazing team of professional Austin wedding vendors, we set up and prepared for our attendees who traveled all over the state of Texas and even Aruba to come join us!  I absolutely loved getting to teach and work through photographing a wedding day and all the tricks/tips that go with that from a photographer’s standpoint.  Our models (and real couples!) were so gracious in letting each attendee work on communication, posing and creating a safe and fun learning environment! It also didn’t hurt that we had a beautiful day full of amazing tuscany wedding details for portfolio work! My favorite part though??  Hosting a dinner at the end of the workshop at our beautifully decorated table with all our attendees, models and some vendors!  It was magical – we sat under the bistro lights and Texas stars as the sun set and we enjoyed italian food, wine, conversation and even a birthday Italian cream cake made for us by Candace, owner of Simply Delicious Custom Cakes to celebrate an attendee’s birthday!   Thank you so much to our incredible vendors listed below for their expertise in bringing a vision and inspiration board to life! If you’re planning a wedding in the Central Texas/Hill Country/Austin area, please contact them!
