The Katie Nesbitt Workshop!
Happy Tuesday, friends! :) This post is a fun one for me and I am so excited to be sharing Katie Nesbitt and her amazing Workshop with you all! Professionals across all fields and areas of expertise take time to continue their professional education far beyond the day they graduate or fill a position. Naturally, I believe the same should apply to us as photographers! This can mean taking a class, scheduling a mentoring session with a photographer you admire, or attending a workshop! At this point, I gravitate toward the latter simply because I feel that my skills develop most with a hands-on, interactive approach. In addition, the networking and collaboration you get to be a part of (there were plenty of talented photographers in attendance!) is invaluable in developing a brand identity and business of my own! (Not to mention attaining new knowledge so I can serve my clients to the best of my ability!) So, a few weeks ago, I made the drive to Charlottesville, VA to attend this spectacular event! I could not have asked for a more wonderful group of photographers to spend the day with, not a more sweet and knowledgeable instructor than the lovely Katie!
I spent the day absorbing loads of fantastic information, and did not have a ton of time to take many “behind the scenes” images! Serena, of Love By Serena was kind enough to share her images from the day, so hers are what you see below! Be sure to check both her and Katie out, they are beyond talented!
It is no surprise that the way to my heart is through tasty things, so when such a sweet (and sweetly displayed!) breakfast was awaiting our arrival, Katie had me at “Hello!” :)
Old Metropolitan Hall in downtown Charlottesville was a stunning venue, with its natural light and southern charm!! (Oh, and isn’t Katie adorable?! :))
The styled shoot (more coming soon!) was inspired by Katie and brought to life by Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events! So much talent everywhere I looked! Being able to photograph details and couples while under the watchful and guiding eye of someone you admire is priceless. Plus, in my opinion, everything Kat touches turns to gold. :)
I cannot wait to share the images I was able to capture from this shoot! Trust me when I say it was STUNNING.
I feel so lucky to have met so many talented and wonderful fellow professionals. I learned from and enjoyed every one of them! Here, we worked together to capture this amazingly lovely couple during the styled shoot portion of the day.
Andddd a quick trip outside. (We all know I can’t help but love good old-fashioned sunlight. :))
Here she is folks, the lovely lady behind this amazing day!! Katie, you have a gift for teaching, sharing and inspiring! I feel so lucky and honored to have spent the day with you and you fabulous talent! Thank you, thank you!! xo
