Another Wicked Workshop!

Wow, what a great day! Dave and I are so happy to say that our Wedding Photography Workshop at Sunnybrook Estates was a huge success. We had an amazing group of photographers participating in workshop and we have to say that they were producing some incredible photography.

Pink Twig Floral Boutique provided us with some absolutely gorgeous bridal bouquets. They stayed sooo fresh and perfect throughout the day which was pretty amazing considering the long day of shooting they endured! We all thought this purple bouquet of Lilacs and Roses smelled soo dreamy, you could smell it from across the room… aaaaahh 🙂

Athena is one of our brides to be, pictured here in the bridal suite. She was so stunning, she really made her Catherine Langlois gown shine.

Since we hosted this photography workshop in February we thought we’d feature some cool winter wedding wear and had Athena sport a few of the wedding stoles we brought along for the shoot. She’s so glamourous, it’s hard to believe she’s never modeled before!

Vlada was definitely getting A LOT of positive feedback from the workshop attendees! She was so graceful and always gave the participants a variety of different poses to choose from, so all of the shots just worked! She’s so striking, we’ll definitely be using Vlada for a future workshop so stay tuned!

Since we had the whole Vaughan Estate to ourselves, the attendees had the run of the house and had so many amazing places to shoot. We did a lot more teaching then shooting, but we did love the shots we got with such an amazing location and our beautiful models. Speaking of beautiful models, meet Vanessa and Mark. Vanessa was wearing a Catherine Langlois gown as well.  While Vanessa is a model, they both are a real couple so it was great getting them to act like a real bride and groom on their wedding day. They both had a great time striking a pose for the camera.

Oh! I almost forgot… the details! Along with the fresh flowers, we had little blue Tiffany&Co. and Birks jewelry boxes, rings, tiaras, necklaces, earrings Bling-Bling as far as the eye could see! Jimmy Choo also made an appearance as the participants tried out some new and creative ways to shoot the shoes. No wedding is complete without the Dom Perignon, we popped some bubbly and shot away.

We will be posting more workshop photos soon including the winners of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. It’s gonna be a difficult job to choose the winners but we’ll be posting them asap!

Also, I’d like to share a very nice testimonial we received from one of the attendees after we got home, thanks so much again and see you all March 15th for the next workshop!!

Here’s what he had to say:

As photographers we are constantly challenged by our clients to be innovative, creative, and traditional at the same time.  We are all charged with becoming masters at our craft and truly showing how much we care about our clients through our work and the experience we deliver to them.  I found that working with Dave and Charlotte and the team at their workshops have been truly inspirational; it is abundantly clear to me that they care deeply about teaching and inspiring other photographers.  As a result of my experience at their workshops I have elevated my offering and value to my clients while building efficiency in my business.  At their workshops I have consistently found myself in an active and fun learning environment where the entire group is able to feed from each other and learn collaboratively.  I have been welcomed to both workshops with Dave and Charlotte with warmth and friendship and also challenged to increase my technical and creative abilities. Photographers interested in pushing their work to the next level need to invest in this experience

Sincerely,

James Lee
