Lizz Hoard of Elizabeth Hoard Photography and Emily Hatch of The Hatches invited me along with a few other rad, fearless photographers & videographers to be instructors at their new workshop: The Real Workshop. Lizz & Emily saw a need for a workshop that teaches real, practical information (more stuff, less fluff!) about all facets of being a wedding photographer, so they created a workshop that does just that!
I am incredibly passionate about the wedding photography industry and it brings me great joy to share my knowledge with other wedding photographers. I was asked to teach lectures on Style & Consistency (along side the amazing Kate Anthony!), Search Engine Optimization (along with Lizz Hoard), and also Cocktail-Hour Portraits (and how to capture a variety of images while managing the chaos that ensues during group portraits!). All of the classes were jam-packed with information that the attendees got to put to use during the workshop!
We also had shoots scheduled (including one during the middle of the day when the light is the most challenging to work with) for the attendees to add some badass images to their portfolios.
The Real Workshop will be back in July 2018 with the same instructors + some guest speakers and I CAN.NOT.WAIT. It was such a life-changing experience!! Check out some of the shots below from the shoots!
Emily is a boss at shooting in harsh light! I picked up a few new tips myself!
HOLY DOUBLE EXPOSURES. I was having fun, trying to create some cool images! (For all of the non-photographers reading this blog entry, this is all done in-camera!)
