The Workshop Experience

  • Behind the Scenes | April 2015

This workshop was different. The layout was the same, the schedule was the same, the content was the same…. but it was still different. This was the LAST workshop in our home. It was bittersweet… and I always get a little teary during workshops when I explain our heart behind our business but I was EXTRA teary at this workshop because a lot is about to change for us. I know you’re all waiting to hear our plans and you know we’re going to share…. once we can! :)

Overall, this workshop made me sentimental… which in turn made me extra vulnerable…. which made the girls extra vulnerable… which made our time together REAL. And that’s why I loved this workshop. Besides having some great discussion and multiple heart-to-hearts, we got into the nitty gritty of business, posing, lighting approaches, marketing through blogging, creating community, office systems, and the most elaborate styled shoot to date! I mean… we had to end workshops at this house with a BANG!!

I think the other reason I was a little on the emotional side was because I kept thinking “Gosh, we haven’t even been in this house for two years yet…. and look what God has done through it!”.  He gave us this space in 2013 and almost 200 photographers have been welcomed into our home through coaching, workshops and events. That’s kind of CRAZY when you think about it!

We couldn’t have done this without our dear friends and fellow wedding vendors who made the styled shoot happen!! I literally walked out of the front door and said “Umm… I think I have a NEW FAVORITE!!!!” Wait till you see this setup friends! Amanda Veronee  is freaking amazing!!
