Since I’m about to have my first wedding of the year – YAY! – I figure it’s time I continue blogging some of my favorite moments from 2015! I was lucky enough to attend a Wedding Photography Workshop with Lahna Graham of Lahna Marie Photography and I’m still drooling over the photos! About 10 of us met in the most lovely hillside villa near Medford, Oregon and spent two days learning and shooting while Lahna guided us through her process while setting up the most decadent scenes! Not only did I learn and come home with amazing portfolio work, but I also met wonderful fellow photographers! It felt like a dream having a few days dedicated to nothing but weddings, talking shop with fellow photogs, enjoying the beautiful weather (a bit smokey as there was a raging wildfire nearby) as well as enjoy the FOOD part of the style shoot that Lahna outdid herself with! These are the moments where I pinch myself, I feel so lucky!
In case you haven’t traveled down to Southern Oregon, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s where I first fell in love with Oregon many many years ago. Since I drove down to the workshop, I was reminded of how beautiful it is. It reminds me of Northern California, yet it’s still it’s own beauty.
Here are a few favorites from Day 1. Trust me, it was impossible to narrow it down to these! Images were gorgeous straight out of the camera and any photographer knows, that’s the best kind and what we always strive for. The model actually owned this horse, so we shot on her families property out in Sams Valley, Oregon. Stunning to say the least! The sky glowed from the wildfires nearby and it truly made for a magnificent evening!
