Happy late 4th of July everyone. Hope the grills were hot, the brews were cold, and you had an awesome firework display to watch! This was a Fourth of July styled shoot that was also featured on Style Me Pretty. The shoot came from the SoCal Shooting Workshop put on by one of the awesome and down to earth photographers and one of my favs, Mike Colón. Mike Colón’s shooting workshop is a shootout with “hands-on instruction in the midst of a styled bridal fashion shoot”.
Mike’s exciting assistant, Kat Harris once again did a great job with the creative direction and wardrobe styling.
Thank you Mike Colón and Kat Harris for setting up another fun shoot! Also thank you to the great team of vendors!

About a month ago I was able to attend Talkshop 3, met with a few photographers, and had a great time! Talkshop is a wedding photography workshop hosted by one of the best and one of my favorite duos in wedding photography, Gavin and Erin Wade of Gavin Wade Photographers.
It was just a full day of talking about everything photography, gear, technical skills, and running your business. They shared their knowledge and experience of their journey into wedding photography. It was such a great atmosphere to learn, but also to meet other fellow photographers that are all wanting to achieve the same goal!
Towards the end of the day we headed out to an awesome photo shoot at Rancho Los Cerritos in Long Beach. The “Great Gatsby” themed shoot was styled & designed by Gloria McCune of Grand Engagements. Everything setup for this photo shoot was so great that we ended up staying a little over the scheduled time. The models, Spencer & Ryan, who were ridiculously awesome.
Thanks to all the vendors that made the day possible. Thanks to Gavin and Erin for hosting a great workshop as well as inviting us into your studio, sharing yourselves, and being such awesome people!
