Garden Grove Luxury Spanish Wedding – Styled Austin Photography Workshop

Garden Grove Luxury Spanish Wedding – Styled Austin Photography Workshop

This is my 6th styled wedding photography workshop to host and instruct at and dare I say, the most adventurous one yet?  We started the morning with a tornado warning, hail and possibly flooding in the Texas Hill Country! In April!  Ever the optimist and tracking my weather ap, it appeared that by noon on Sunday the weather would clear and it would be beautiful….and guess what…the weatherman was right!  This amazingly talented and trusting group of local Austin wedding vendors came together at Garden Grove in South Austin and created the perfect vision for our “luxury Spanish villa’ themed wedding!  Jessica Upton of Uptown Events designed an inspiration board full of color and little touches of lace and Spanish vibes that all came together seamlessly.  I love that we get to spoil our attendees with so many details and situations to photograph and truly create a ‘wedding day’ worthy of publication! My goal each year is to provide a professionally styled ‘wedding’ and teach through the important parts for photographers looking to get into wedding photography or enhance their knowledge and provide a safe & fun environment to practice their skills, try new lenses, work on posing and have fun!  I’m blown away each year with the photographers willing to invest in their education and who come eager to learn – I’m so excited to get to be a part of their journey!  I learned from some amazing photographers when I started out 10 years ago and feel blessed to get to pass along my knowledge and processes.  If you’re interested in being a part of the next styled...

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

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!
