Marie Antoinette Inspired Wedding Hope Taylor Workshop


When I walked into the Mary Washington Jepson Center for last week’s workshop styled shoot…my jaw dropped open. The creative team for this shoot absolutely blew me away and I was in total shock! We had been dreaming and scheming up this shoot for MONTHS before the workshop began…and seeing it come to life (better than I ever could have imagined) was a total dream come true. We wanted fluffy flowers, pastel spring tones and a little bit of Marie Antoinette inspiration. I adored every little detail!

This shoot was held for my March Hope Taylor Workshopt attendees. It was the styled shoot on day one (day two coming soon!) and I taught the attendees all about posing, lighting, shooting, styling details, client interaction, camera settings and more while we photographed. It the first time I EVER hosted wedding-related education (yay!) and I adored breaking down a wedding day for all of the attendees!

I have to give a HUGE thank you to the creative team who put this shoot together, because they surpassed my wildest dreams!
