GUYS. I have been waiting to share this blog for MONTHS! Back in May, I made a huge investment in myself and my business. KariMe Photography is someone I have followed and admired for years, and she absolutely loves mentoring young and aspiring photographers. She hosted her second-ever workshop at her husband's family's golf course in Harpster, OH with about 15 other photographers. Some of them I had met before, some were just beginning in photography. Regardless of where we were in our careers, one thing was for sure: we all were there to learn and improve ourselves and our businesses.

The day consisted of a LOT of slides of information, ranging from task management and workflow, to marketing and social media, to camera settings and gear, to couple interaction and posing, and even a Q+A!

Of course the highlight of the day was the styled shoot that Kari put together. It was OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. She channeled boho and greenery into her over-the-top romantic couple, amazing bridal gowns, and every detail in between. Kari spent time with each girl, coaching them through the shoot, sharing and tips and tricks about each aspect of the wedding day.

It was so incredibly helpful and so motivating. I left overloaded with information, but SO inspired. I hope you all enjoy the images! I have loved getting to look through these months later. I smile because they are so beautiful to me, and just a glimpse of the learning that took place that day.
