last week i reached a goal of mine that i’ve been dreaming of since i first started my business 6 years ago. i hosted my very first wedding photography workshop. after two amazing days with the most wonderful attendees, i left feeling so excited, proud and incredibly inspired. there is so much talent in durban! all these amazing women needed was a push in the right direction.
we were so spoilt to be treated by some amazing sponsors! from the venue, to the stationary, to the food and the decor & flowers for the styled shoot – it really as all a dream come true!! from the bottom of my heart, thank you ladies SO much for your hard work and amazing skills. and to our incredible models who won my engagement shoot competition- megan and brett – you could not have been more perfect! thank you for letting 9 cameras focus on you and shout instruction and still be able to giggle and have fun through it all.
and here’s a glimpse into how the two days unfolded…
the beautiful barker manor was an absolute dream venue for the workshop, with so much space, and so many different options for shooting the couple.
the food from nosh catering was absolutely out of this world. the carrot cake… oh, the carrot cake!
planned to perfection put so much detail into every, little thing. even down to making the table we ate lunch at so beautiful! we were so spoilt!
on day 2, we started the day with some accounting knowledge from the best in the business! nicki from NB Accounting explained to all the girls how to stay on the right side of the tax man from day 1, while explaining it in such nice, simple terms for us creatives!
again, planned to perfection were incredible in styling these beautiful settings for the attendees to photograph during the styled shoot. the beautiful stationary was made by ruby & swallow, and the gorgeous flower arrangements by petals fine flowers.
and then megan and brett… the most perfect couple to have one the competition that i held a few weeks back. they managed to keep up the smiles and giggles without feeling awkward with 9 cameras in their face and shouting directions at them. you two could not have been hotter!! and thank you to bianca warren for sponsoring some items for megan to wear.
and to the awesome attendees… i could not be prouder of you all! and of course, i literally could not have done it without you. go get ’em girls!
