Workshop Love / Bridal / Austin Portrait Photography

February 18, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I had the great privilege of taking a photography workshop this past fall at Pecan Springs Ranch here in Austin, Texas. The workshop was hosted by Al Gawlik Photography & Tim Waters Photography. Words cannon express how grateful I am to these folks. Not only are they incredible photographers but they are wonderful people. They were so eager to answer my questions and to teach. At this event, I also met several other photographers and have been able to network and learn from all of them as well ever since.

Bridal Glory At the workshop we went over what it takes to run a wedding business, did critiques of some of our work that we had brought with us and then we had a styled shoot. I think this was the moment I fell in love with wedding photography. The beauty of a girl in white awaiting her prince charming. The way the sun kisses her skin. I love everything about it. There was a group of about 10 of us, but what I loved was that none of our pictures came out exactly the same. Everyone has their own unique voice and way that they look at the world. It gave me confidence that I could indeed stand out among the crowd and make each session and group of photos my own.

My advice to those of you who don't think you can do this and those of you who think you are just blending in, is to find that one thing that you love and expand on it. Ask yourself why you love taking pictures. What is your favorite thing to take pictures of and why? What is your favorite type of lighting and how do you like to edit? There my friends is where you will find your style and how you can put your personal touch on each and every picture you take. 

Be You. Be Free. Be Brilliant. <3
