If you’re a photographer and you’ve ever wanted to break into the wedding side of things, or if you’ve ever wanted to follow me around at a wedding, ask questions, and take photos of some of my actual couples along the way, this is for you.
On Saturday, January the 13th, 2018 I’ll be putting on a wedding from start to finish at the Destin Bay House.
I’ll be walking 15 photographers step by step through my process of shooting an entire wedding day from hair and makeup/getting ready photos, first look photos, bridal party portraits, ceremony, catered reception, garter/bouquet toss, grand exit, to long exposure shots, letting everyone photograph multiple couples along the way in every stage of an actual wedding day.
And even though it makes some local photographers cry bitter tears every time I say it, every photographer is absolutely welcome to use all photos from the wedding workshop to promote their businesses on their websites and social media as much as possible. #BlessTheirHearts
I’ll be working with some of my all time favorite wedding vendors and they’ll be giving behind the scenes tips and wisdom on how not to suck as a wedding photographer throughout the day.
At the end of the day, you’ll have complete destination wedding for your portfolio, an inappropriate amount of every single thing I could ever tell you about wedding photography, a catered dinner by my man crush of a chef, Mr. Heyward McKenzie with Culinary Catering 365, and an after party with my DJ from another mother, Mr. Vaughn VanAmburg.
Cost is $450 per attendee.
Class size is limited to 15 people.
50% retainer to hold your spot. Registration deadline is Dec. 31st.
What You’ll Need: Something to take notes with, a camera, working knowledge of shooting in manual mode, 50mm lens or wider, a portrait or zoom lens, and an external flash, aka not the one built into your camera.
(I shoot with two Canon 5d MkIII’s, a Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro lens, and a Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens, if you’re remotely curious.)
You’ll also need a few memory cards, an extra battery or two, a tripod if you want to play with long exposure shots, and one lens with at least a 1.8 aperture, or you’re going to be a sad panda during the dark reception shots.
