Okay, so to start the blogging a bit, this weekend I had the fabulous opportunity of going down to Nashville, TN to participate in a Not-a-Workshop hosted by Joshua Gull. Josh is a Nashville wedding photographer and husband of a childhood friend of mine, and quite a talented photographer. As part of what he does, Josh has started these Not-a-Workshops as an opportunity for photographers to work on craft, technique, editing, and business skills, as well as to network with one another in a more organic and hands-on setting than the typical conference hall workshop can provide. I was honored enough to actually be a speaker at the workshop during the shooting portion, which was a ton of fun! I learned so much invaluable information during the weekend and absolutely had a blast.
I’ll post some pictures from my shooting portion a bit later, but at the start of the shooting day, I had the opportunity to witness an actual surprise engagement from one of the photographers at the workshop, Andy, to his girlfriend Kayla. (So cute!) It was totally awesome to be a part of that and to get to snap some “actual” engagement pictures (as in, as-it’s-happening!). So here are a few of Kayla and Andy from earlier on in the day, which were taken during Kristen Steele and Rich Lavigne’s (two of the other speakers) portions of the workshop.
