Bayside Workshop |Wedding Styled Shoot


A few months ago, I had the opportunity to attend the Bayside Workshop in Maryland held by Natalie Franke and Krista Jones. With my mom, her best friend and my best friend in tow…it was one SUPER fun girl’s trip!! We explored Maryland, ate at delicious ice cream shops + stayed up late to order room service every night! While the trip itself was a BLAST, the workshop was even BETTER!!

Natalie + Krista are just wonderful, and I knew from the get-go that their workshop was going to rock my world. I was SO right!! We spent the day learning all about wedding photography: everything from shooting, workflow, getting published, SEO, ideal clients and more. All of the details of the day were absolutely STUNNING, and the styled shoot was TO-DIE-FOR. It may have been pouring rain and freezing cold…but nothing can stop a group of super-inspired, overly-excited wedding photographers!! I have been waiting to share this one with you all for MONTHS, and I’m so pumped to share it today! A huge thanks to all of these amazing vendors:
