Sunstone Winery July 29, 2019

So excited to announce I’ve partnered up with Love and Honeywed to bring you:

Bellas Artes Retreat

 Please contact me to be added to the next Bellas Artes Retreat

Malibu Rocky Oaks wedding


Cost of workshop is currently $1250 (until 6/22 there is a $250 discount! Get on it before it closes). There is only 6 spots available!  If you know me you know I love amazing gowns, so it’s going to be lit! Registration doesn’t include hotel fees/meals that aren’t included. There is an option to only go for the shooting portion of the bridal setup on July 29th. To do so you’d pay $650 (please note on the registration form that you’ll only be going to shoot the bridal portion from 5-7pm. This will include ceremony setup, tablescape, and bridal couple). If you’d like to add the engagement shoot (from 2:30-4pm session) you can add that one on as well for and additional $200).

Topics include film stocks, artistic directing, metering, shooting for publication, styling for submission, destination weddings, elevating your business, portfolio review, and so much more! Come learn and be inspired!

To register please contact me HERE and add workshop registration in “message.” You will receive an invoice within 24 hours, which you can pay to reserve your spot. If you don’t see it, check your spam folder.

Please remember that workshop space is limited. Once those spots fill up registration will be closed! Workshop registration fees are non refundable.

  •  lunch is included on July 29th as well as light snacks

What topics will be covered?

Let’s be real. We want you to leave with a great understanding of shooting film (this isn’t just a shoot for your portfolio type of workshop–although you will definitely get portfolio worthy pictures). I will be going into film stocks, what I use, why I use them. I will cover metering, backlighting, finding great light, shooting in harsh light, shooting in overcast conditions, shooting while it’s raining, shooting at noon, shooting with movement, artful storytelling, cinematic posing, shooting for publication, destination weddings, and so much more! If you’re newer to film or just starting out, not getting consistent results, feeling uninspired, needing more help with posing, or need more film knowledge this is definitely the workshop for you! We want you to leave confident reaching for your film camera during an entire wedding day or portrait session.
