A few weeks ago I attended a light workshop in Philadelphia by LuRey Photography! (You can read all about the workshop by clicking here) Being a Philadelphia wedding photographer wanting to learn from the best, I jumped on the occasion to visit the studio 10TWO5 and to learn from LuRey Photography! Philadelphia is just a little drive away and I have been wanting to expand my business and incorporate off camera flash more and more. I play with it now, but in the past I have considered myself a natural light photographer., who dabbles with light. This workshop has helped me branch out more, and be able to offer my clients a better wedding experience.
I love Philadelphia, and love that I can consider myself a Philadelphia wedding photographer! Philadelphia is a gorgeous place, full of great people, beautiful buildings, and amazing opportunities to take EPIC photos! A dream of mine is to be able to photograph brides in Philadelphia buildings on a high up floor with the entire city seen outside of the window. That can only been done with the use of flash! Now that I have a better understanding for it, I plan on making GORGEOUS photos with the skills I’ve learned!
This experience did make me wish I had a studio, because studio work is just so gorgeous! I would obviously have to invest in a bit more equipment than I have now, but it would totally be worth it! For now, if I need a studio, I can always rent a space. There are so many places in Philadelphia that are so perfect!
Easton and Laura of LuRey Photography, are such amazing people. I met them being in this industry, and I cannot tell you enough how happy I am to call them friends, not just colleagues. The love that have for teaching is so great! You can tell when someone is passionate about what they do. They not only take amazing photos, they care about their clients, and bettering the industry by helping other photographers reach their full potential and more. So, if you are a Philadelphia Wedding Photographer, or in the Tri-State area, you should look them up and go to one of their workshops. You will not regret it!
Here are some of my photos from the workshop. Needless to say, I have learned some fabulous tricks that I plan to use on upcoming 2015 weddings! I really cannot wait!
Workshops are everywhere, you just need to tap into the right area and attend. I was lucky enough to see that Hello Gorgeous Photography (my wedding photographers and dear friends) were throwing a workshop in Cape May, NJ at the most amazing hotel/wedding venue ever – Congress Hall. Now, let me explain my excitement here. First off, I love HGP. My husband and I chose them for our wedding. They’re amazing ladies, who I enjoy dancing the Cupid Shuffle with, laughing, and basically all things photo. Secondly – CONGRESS HALL!!! Okay, so, then the planning begins. I see posts and get excited because not only will it be at Congress Hall, but the couple is gorgeous, a previous bride of theirs who will be wearing a Vera Wang dress, Bailey of Just Be. designed all the fancy paper goods (menu cards, invitations, save the dates, adorable name tags with glitter, you name it, if it was paper, she did it!). Then the florist was Savannah’s Garden! OMGEEEEEEE seriously! To top it off, Jamie Cakes, who I had no idea who she was, but she makes the most amazing cupcakes – I have ever tasted – to – this – day!
So, without any more delay, I want to show you all the amazing photos I was able to take from this workshop. I can’t tell you enough how happy I am, how proud of myself, and how much I highly reccomend the HGP Workshops!
