Last month, I traveled to New Orleans to lead a shooting workshop of 15 photographers for the Pictage Partner Conference. The title of my program was “Trashy-Chic Bridal Fashion”. During the workshop, I talked about my thought process behind choosing different lenses, settings, and backdrops. I also shared with the group how I find neutral yet dynamic light sources when I’m shooting with available light. To accomplish the “Trashy-Chic” vision, we brought in the usual ringers: Stylist Brandi Brownlee and Hair Genius Stormie Robinson. Our stunning models were none other than Sydney Fincher and Jessica Granger. Special thanks to my assistant Kat Harris who put the whole thing together from California and to Mon Amie Bridal Salon for providing the gowns.
