Q: What should I bring?
A: Your camera, various lenses, a flash if you have one, SD cards and batteries. I will be sharing all the tips, tricks and secrets I’ve learned so grab some pen and paper too or laptop.
Do I need a lot of experience or fancy gear to take this workshop??
A: I designed this workshop to be open to all levels of photographers. If you would like to be confidant photographing a wedding, gain wedding experience, lean new skills and add material to your portfolio; then this is for you. Entry level cameras are totally alright because you can take great photos with any camera. For best results, a DSLR camera is suggested. If you don’t own one, consider renting. Many wedding professionals rent gear for various weddings and shoots.
Q: What can we expect on Day #2 for the “wedding”?
A: The shoot will take place at the George Washington Hotel is Washington and I have teamed up with some incredible vendors to bring you the best “real-fake wedding” I can. I have included all of the real wedding day events… details, getting ready, first look, portraits, ceremony, reception and tried to include as many real-to-life situations I could.
We will be walking through the “real-fake wedding” just like I would on a wedding day. I will approach each section of the wedding day starting with a “how to” for you all on what I am thinking, doing and planning. From there it will be Q&A and then I will quickly show you what I have just explained then open the floor for each of you to approach the situation too. This will be wedding day shooting like you would if this were a booked client allowing you to try new things and get creative while being able to stop and ask as many questions as you need.
Is there a lodging option?
A: Yes! I have reserved a room block at the George Washington hotel for the workshop so you don’t have to travel unless you want to. They have given us a great rate, simply mention the workshop room block.
