to believe it’s over! Just like that… our first international workshop is done and we’re currently in a hotel room trying desperately to get our checked bags AND our carry-on bags under the weigh restriction! (Because in Australia, your checked bag can only be 7 kilos! Weird!) It all went by so so fast… and since we’re in the midst of our wedding season, we have to come home too soon. But now that we have sweet friends here, we have so many reasons to come back for a visit!!!
So I had to share a little workshop sneak peek AND these hilarious behind the scenes shots from the talented Ryan Abbas!!! So we technically weren’t supposed to be on the dunes… or as the aussies say, the “Junes”…. but we snuck up there for a few minutes anyway and it was worth it!! However, just shooting on the sand meant that I wasn’t high enough to capture the coastline and so Michael helped me hop up on a fence post to get the shot of the day! You can see the difference below! Shot #1: And this was shot #2 from a “higher elevation”… with the beautiful Adelaide coastline behind our awesome couple!
And THIS is me taking shot #2! Thank goodness for Michael… that post was TINY! So worth it! We cannot WAIT to share the rest of these images. The team that collaborated was just AMAZING! We’re so thankful for everyone’s help! I will be posting a larger “Behind the scenes” post soon with proper credit to EVERYONE involved but for now, I need to thank Renee Reynolds for being brave enough to email us and offer to help us plan an Australian workshop!! AH! She was a life saver!! And Gabrielle Walsh for styling and designing our styled shoot! Until finding her, I was in freak-out mode! So much needed to be done and did it like a champ! We were so blessed to be able to connect with her and I can’t wait to share all of her hard work!! Huge thanks to Ryan for capturing these pictures! We’ll cherish them forever!! And Thank you for Michael for always carrying my bag when we’re working together… my shoulders are so grateful! :)
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
