VCS Mentor Session shootout

While attending the annual WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Professionals International) conference in Las Vegas this year I had the opportunity to attend a shoot organized by awesome photographer Victor Sizemore.  I think this may have been one of the funnest things I did while in LV and would love to do this again.  If not for the shooting itself, the opportunity to meet other amazing photographers from around the world and to be inspired by the passion that other people have was amazing. There are 3 sets to this series: Bride Alone, Bride & Groom and an adorable little girl. First up, Bride Alone!

Tara – Back button focusing is your BFF.
Girl sitting on the bus in front of me – Don’t forget. When shooting Servo, lock in your focus then take your finger off the focus button. Then recompose :)

The rad cats that made this shoot possible:

Photo Shoot Mentor: Victor Sizemore Photography
Super Stylist: Styling by Summer Watkins
Jewelry: Historical Jewels
Makeup & Hair: Jill Guin of Darling Bride

Hannah & Daniel: bridal

I shot Hannah & Daniel’s engagement photos a while back but sadly, never got the chance to shoot their wedding as I was busy creating images for another fabulous couple that same day.  So instead of hiring another photographer, they chose to wait for me and allow me the opportunity to shoot some wedding photos for them!  Now thats loyalty baby!

Hannah and Daniel are such amazing people. Very open, happy and have this awesome quirkiness about them, in particular Daniel!

Thank you again for allowing me to do this for you. You are both so positive and energetic, it makes my job of making beautiful images of you two that much easier.  I hope you two have a wonderful marriage and everlasting love and quirkiness!
