a cinco de mayo inspired v.a. photography workshop | richmond virginia wedding photographer

colorful fall staunton virginia engagement photographer_0615

back in august, i hosted my first ever photography workshop! to be honest, i was pretty nervous when i first announced it! so many other great photographers started announcing their workshops and here i was with mine. i thought for sure it was going to be a bust! to my surprise, every spot was filed! gah!!! how cool is that? i was so excited to share with everyone what i had learned and how to balance a full-time business with a full-time job!

on the day of the workshop, when kat and i were setting up for the girls, i was bouncing off the walls! i was SO EXCITED for everything that was about to happen. the crazy thing is, me + public speaking = disaster! but for my workshop, it was the opposite! i felt so comfortable! i didn’t feel nervous, it just felt right! weird how stuff like that works out, right?

i’m so thankful for all the girls who attended! we had so much fun and got to shoot this AMAZING styled shoot by kat, of dear sweetheart events! 

thank you to everyone who made this workshop dream a reality!

AND thank you SO MUCH to every last detail for featuring this shoot!!! :)

enjoy my favorites from the day! :)
