“It’s Christmas themed without being too Christmasy” – words that I read while looking at the inspiration board of a beautifully detailed Nutcracker-esque wedding. I was so excited to travel to Pittsburgh for the Fine Art Wedding Workshop. As an educator myself, sometimes I find myself wanting to just have a little fun. Not have to worry and stress about details and vendors and timelines. Sometimes, I will gladly pay for a ticket, meet some beautiful minded ladies and photograph amazing styled shoots. I walk out feeling refreshed and more knowledgeable than I was when I arrived. You never stop learning.
Meeting Jenn was amazing. She was so excited to share her knowledge with us and watch us all take the details and portraits that our creative souls were craving. She had so many amazing tips and things to try. Dara and I have worked together before, so I knew that this shoot would be styled impeccably. It was beyond perfect. HIP At the Flashlight Factory was a perfect venue choice, and being in downtown Pittsburgh was even unbelievable with how big the space is and how much light comes pouring in the windows It was gorgeous. The group was small, so we all had a good amount of time to really get into it, and I loved that. Thank you so much Jenn and Dara, for putting this workshop together and teaching us how to run a perfect or nearly perfect Styled shoot. You’re both amazing and it was an honor to learn from you. A HUGE thank you goes out to all of the vendors who were a part on this shoot, as it wouldn’t have been the same without each and every one of you!
