Off Camera Workshop | Round 1


Part of me still can’t believe I did this… it’s been one of those goals in the back of my mind for quite a while and I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d ever be brave enough to do it.  But after walking several other photographers through off camera lighting the past couple of years, and several others emailing or texting with questions, I thought it was finally time!

So with the extra push from my husband and the desire to help other local photographers out, it happened; the venue was rented, the cake picked up, and the dishes were delivered!  But the biggest shoutout from the night goes to Jenny Williams for being the most amazing assistant ever!  Things would not have run anywhere near as smoothly without her help that night!  She also took a few behind the scenes photos, which I’m so thankful for!


Can you believe that this string of pearls was photographed AFTER sunset??


The only disclaimer I’ll give is for the flowers… I picked some up at Trader Joe’s and arranged them myself.
Not the best in the world, but it’s prettier than a table without a center piece!

And how about these beautiful dishes??  Pretty Plates of Greenville has an incredible collection available for rent!

To wrap things up, we went outside to practice sparkler exits.  We set everything up and then each of us took turns photographing as well as holding sparklers… and each time, Christi and her man graciously walked through as if they’d just gotten married!


Thank you ladies so much for coming out!!
