The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it away.
– William Shakespeare
Hello lovelies, I hope everyone is doing perfectly well on this sunny morning! We have such exciting news that we are launching another Illuminated Collective fine art wedding and styling workshop 🙂 this one day workshop will offer much the same as the last one but with a few added extra’s including motivational talks with practicals tips from Christian and Erica of UK Film Lab and the lovely Sara Russell from Wedding Sparrow.
Sara is also create the whole aesthetic for the day and having full creative input so we can offer each attendee the best fine art styling around, we will be collaborating with Amy of Bo Boutique a master of floral styling… together I am sure they will create wonders!
Both myself and my fellow partner in crime Britt Spring, will be mentoring and lending a hand to all those in attendance during the styled shoot part of the day too. I will be focusing on couple styling and sharing my knowledge on how I use film during a wedding day whilst Britt will be more focused on styling single female models which comes in very useful for those shooting editorials, portraits and brides.
We have created the day to both inspire and educate those who are new to film photography and wanting to extend their services. Film photography is becoming so popular once again with aesthetically driven brides who have a keen eye for beautiful organic images and we want to help everyone in attendance to appeal to those brides more by building strong portfolios.
We will also be sending each attendee home with a luxe goody bags of treats including invaluable notes from UK Film Lab, Sara, Flourish and Prosper and many more.
The workshop will be held in Norfolk, UK on the September 18th 2014. For more information and to book email firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is a reminder of some of the beautiful styling we have created in the past featured on Wedding Sparrow today… (full list of vendors below)
