Phew what a whirlwind of a weekend this was! Just as I thought I was about the hunker down for the winter, an opportunity to attend Ashley Largesse's Winter Retreat came up, and I just couldn't let it pass by. The weekend was filled with laughter and even tears (happy tears) and it was inspiring to be around a handful of fellow photographers aspiring to take their business to the next level.
On day two, Ashley and a group of very talented vendors (all listed below) put together a styled shoot to put to use everything we had discussed the day before. Ashley and I have very different photographic styles, so I was happy to be challenged to keep mine consistent in a darker setting. How'd I do? :) I'm SO excited to put all of the styling techniques I've acquired for my 2017 brides! Can May get here already?! Feel free to leave your comments below!
