I'm a pretty lucky girl. I love my job. I love it even more after my 'walk through a wedding with j&m' workshop. This was an amaizing exsperience and the most fun I've had in a long time. We had a stunning couple play bride and groom. Candice & Josh are wedding photographers themselves but made awesome models for the day. We also had fun DIY accessories from Justin & Mary and some killer jewelry and hair pieces from Larissa Lake We started the shoot at J&M's house where we played with some of the getting ready details.
After Candace was dressed we all piled into a few cars and headed over to the church.
After we all had a chance to practice shooting the bride being escorted down the isle we again packed into cars and headed down to a fantastic reception location near the ocean. Kat and I were lucky enough to have been riding in the bride and grooms car which meant we got a few extra shots in while they were walking to the reception building.
Once inside I started to realize just how awesome this shoot was going to be. A fantastic location with KILLER light!
Justin & Mary gave us a lot of really great pointers and showed us exactly what they do when they shoot.
Did I mention how much I loved shooting Candace & Josh???
This girl can work a camera. Look at that smile!
Some of the DIY accessories were these cute little flags that said things like "Yay" and "Yippee". At one point the "Yay" sign decided it had had enough. So I asked Julia to pout because her sign was broken.
Our two bridesmaids for the day- working the camera.
Last but not least a few details from the accessories and table.
I really can't put into words how much fun I had and how much I learned. I am so excited for Stephanie & Tom's wedding this afternoon because I have a million new and fun ideas to play with!
Thank you J&M so much for your totally kick butt workshop.
