After this, Alex pulls clothing and props and basically translates our vision board into reality, including finding the model that suits the look. After having worked together so much - Alex knows exactly what kind elements work best for motion - especially my style of filming.
The bride: I have personally always wanted to set up a shoot with a very haunting, bohemian feel - something that isn't so typical for bridal shoots. I knew this would push some of my attendees out of their comfort zone, and I was okay with that :) Here's a look at the board Alex curated for this look:
Alex took into account the space the attendees were shooting in and communicated some of these ideas to Hilary who was doing florals. Every single detail from the the floral cuff on Madeleine's wrist to the florals floating in the fountain were thought about. Here is what I filmed at the workshop for this look:
Because half of my attendees were highschool senior photographers, we made sure to have 2 styled shoots catered specifically to this group.
Translated through photos:
photography by Mary ClaireI don't know what I would have done without Alex or Mary Claire. There was a moment during lunch that I ran to the back to collect myself and the two of them were right there, full of encouragement and support. I think that's what I'll remember most about these days - these relationships. Brainstorming, slapping on fake tattoos to instagram, pep talks, and dreaming about ways to change our industry.
What I loved most about this first workshop was watching my attendees grow and change things up by incorporating films into their business. It truly left me speechless to see what they did after the workshop. That's what I want to do in this industry - change the way people think of and use motion :) Let me know if you want to be a part of that!
