This week was a whirlwind of fun, learning, and meeting new creatives, and hanging out with some of my favorite photography friends. I had a great time at Shutterfest this week, an exhausting, amazing time! #Shutterfest was created by Sal Cincotta and Taylor Cincotta and his amazing team. We all stayed at The Union Station hotel downtown. 2,000 people took over the hotel, and we had workshops with some of the industry best! I was fortunate to have classes with Scott Robert Lim, we had a blast in his lighting class, I love his upbeat personality, and he is so full of knowledge, Bambi Cantrell is amazing! Vanessa Joy had a wonderful Wedding business class, I love her family/ life balance. I nerded out at my very first class of Shutterfest with Aaron Nace of Phlearn, so cool to meet such an amazing artist! Skip Cohen had a midnight class, It was just too late…
Moshe Zusman’s reception lighting class was informative. I am still sad I missed out on Craig Lamere’s class, I didn’t sign up in time! There was so much going on, and so many things I wanted to do, that is why I signed up for Shutterest 2016.
I especially loved my class with Phillip & Eileen Blume, who are so very nice, Eileen is amazing at posing couples naturally and fun! Phillip was super informative, and took time to explain things on lighting. I love using lighting at my weddings but it is so nice to gain the confidence while working with tricky lighting that can often wreak havoc on images if you do not know what you are doing. They are truly sweet people, and I just love their style, and truly enjoyed their class. I love capturing images of love, and these models did a great job of modeling a wedding!
I am going to share a few images I captured while at The Blumes hands on class. So grateful for the experience!
Really beautifully captured, Elizabeth! You’re a true pro, girl. It was great working with you. Till next year!! 🙂
Can’t wait! Thank you!!!
Yay Darcy! Sew is incredibly rewarding. I recommend everyone tries it because
there’s something to sew for everyone. Nothing like
dressing yourself too. Also, if you have a weigh and pay
you can find things cheaply that just need a little repair or altering to be good as new again. I also see sewing machines
all over the place at yard sales. Just a little investment to get
started. Great article!
