Just a couple weeks ago we had the amazing experience of getting to host a pair of workshops. We had such a great time, and we’re really excited to be giving ya’ll a small recap. We’ll start with the recap of the morning, beginners’ workshop.
We met our group early, and we covered a lot of information, so time really flew! We enjoyed talking with everyone and spending time with all of the workshop photographers, so much so that we decided to have our next set of workshops on separate days – meaning we get to spend the whole day with each group! We had a blast getting to know all the attendees, and we are so glad that they all made the effort to come out and have some fun with photography. : )
We promised models for the Advanced Workshop, but we thought it would be fun to surprise our morning attendees with some models also. : ) We enlisted two pre-teen/teen models, Miriam and Joseph, to help us on the workshop and – we just have to say- they were AMAZING!!
Here’s a behind the scenes of one of the workshop attendees, Melissa, rocking some photos with model Miriam. You know it’s going well when your model is this happy seeing the back of your camera!
When we teach a workshop with models, we mainly focus on allowing the attendees to photograph so everyone coming to the workshop has a chance rock their cameras and create some fun images. We got to blend a little of the time with some examples of how we work together and let everyone see how we shoot, and interact with our teen models. We promised everyone we’d post a few of our favorites from the frames we shot, so here they are!
Thank you to Greg, Rebecca, Melissa, LaShonda, and Barbara for making it out to the Beginners’ workshop! We had so much fun spending the morning with you all!
Make sure to visit the blog later for a recap on the oh-so-fun advanced Afternoon Workshop. Oh, and YES. We will be offering more workshops in the future. We’ve had lots of inquiries about the next available workshop date, so we’ve started thinking of one! We don’t have a date set yet, and wedding season is in full swing, but we’ll be sure to announce it just as soon as it’s ready.
Be sure to keep up with the Ivy Weddings fanpage on Facebook so you can be the first to find out about future workshop openings!
