Danielle Poff Workshop // Fine Art Film Wedding Photography // Carmel Valley, California

July 23, 2014

In June, I was able to attend a mind-blowingly wonderful workshop in California, hosted by the talented and sweet Danielle Poff. Besides being a fun learning experience, I got to meet a handful of women passionate about photography and hear their stories. We had the chance to photograph a Spanish Bohemian inspired shoot, which I can BARELY contain my excitement for (errr, actually I can’t), and had SO many favorite images that this blog post is extra long!

 

ALSO, this post is entirely shot on film! I had the opportunity to slow down, compose some thoughtful images, and document the love of the couple (who are recently married) that we got to work with. That entire day made my heart flutter with excitement. A big thanks to Danielle for hosting, and to all the skilled creatives who lent their services and time to the inspiration shoot, the full vendor list is at the bottom of the post.
