Finally I can ANNOUNCE this wonderful gem of a project I’ve been getting together with some of my favorite local wedding professionals!!! Hannah Hildebrandt has easily become my favorite planner to work with in this area, and after two successful styled shoots together we wanted to throw something BIGGER together that would incorporate a styled shoot and a portfolio opportunity for photographers in the Hampton Roads area. The Lesner Inn as wonderful and gracious as they are has agreed to allow us to set up a Fall themed styled shoot & workshop in their gorgeous, right-on-the-bay venue right here in Virginia Beach featuring models, florals, decor, desserts…the whole deal!
The way the workshop will roll is we will have stations set up where participants can shoot different details at different times in small groups, optimizing your experience and giving you enough time to get the shots you need in small groups. We will have models, too 🙂 The Lesner Inn is very versatile because we will have natural light but there are covered decks that will allow us to still shoot in the case of rain and STILL get beautiful images. After the workshop (from 3-6pm) a dinner will be held at my home (6:30-9pm) in Virginia Beach as well as a casual Q+A! I really didn’t want to end the day with just shooting, but be able to network and talk a little together and enjoy dinner in an intimate and personal environment…so everyone is welcome to attend the dinner afterward and bring your questions…and be SURE to bring your business cards!
Everyone will afterwards be entered into a private Facebook group that already has almost 50 members who network and support one another daily. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of and they girls get together often for “shoot outs” and headshot swaps! They’re SUCH a fun bunch!
Dinner is included in the cost, we will have a small gift for everyone and additionally we will provide a list of information you will need when posting the images from the shoot that includes all the vendor information so that everyone is properly credited. You are allowed to use these images on any portfolio whether it’s your website, Facebook, blog, etc! The only thing we ask is that they are not submitting for publication as these images will be used in marketing and potential publication on my behalf for the vendors. But…that’s the only stipulation…they are YOUR images to share! 🙂
