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 to my dear friend, Shannon her amazing team! They pulled together a beautiful vision for our attendees to photograph and used so many talented Bakersfield wedding vendors for us to showcase! If you’re in Central California and planning a wedding or event, please contact any of these vendors to take amazing care of you!
