A few months back, you may remember that I posted about an awesome wedding photography workshop, hosted by Katie Nesbitt Photography, that I attended in Charlottesville, VA. The workshop was absolutely amazing (if you’re interested, you can read about that more here) all around, but I have to say, one of the best parts was getting to actually put everything we were learning into action during a styled shoot! I love being able to watch other photographer’s work. I think it’s amazing that while we all shoot with the same cameras, lenses, and lighting equipment, all our work turns out to look differently. Each of us have a unique eye and give different cues to our clients so that no two images are ever the same! So much comes down to how you direct a couple and I feel like I learned so much about how I want to approach that in the future.
The shoot planned as an intimate wedding at Old Metropolitan Hall in downtown with an industrial romance theme. Katie and Kat, of Dear Sweetheart Events, put together a beautiful vision that was reminiscent of details you normally see in shoots out West — definitely not here in Virginia! Trust me, there is nothing I love more than being a Washington, DC wedding photographer and having the most gorgeous, classic weddings to photograph; but I feel like you can really push yourself as an artist the most when you’re trying something new! And while it was very industrial, it somehow still maintained an air of rustic romance. I honestly feel like I’m not doing the shoot any justice; you’ll have to just take a peek below and let me know what you think!
