I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Happy Thursday!

Today, I wanted to share a little sneak peek into what we have planned for our Shoot This Not That Workshop. First up, I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be teaming up with The Collection Event Studio. This is a team of gals who offer a VAST array of resources for any bride getting married in wine country. They are the perfect compliment to our workshop and I absolutely cannot wait to work with their team of vendors! When we met over skype, I felt kind of like a bride planning her wedding, wandering aimlessly without any resources. All of a sudden, here is this insanely awesome network of vendors ready to jump in and make everything come to life. If you are getting married anywhere near northern California, call these girls!

With the guidance of Emily and Shaunna of The Collection Event Studio, we’ve landed upon an AMAZING venue for our photo shoot and wine dinner. Our mock wedding shoot will seamlessly turn into a wine tasting dinner, featuring a custom wine and food pairing. Scribe Winery will be hosting us and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to unleash photographers on this place that is so full of gorgeous details.

I’m also really excited that we’re working on the opportunity to bring on the talents of Lidia of La Fleuriste. Her work is incredibly inspiring, so it will be a thrill to team up!

We’ve got other culinary destinations (read: more great stuff to shoot!!) planned as well. One that I’m really excited about is brunch at Fremont Diner…a wine country staple. This place is full of down home charm and again, full of so many opportunities to shoot AND eat.

On top of all that, we’ve got some fun goodies for our photographers once they arrive. One that I’m particularly excited about is a giveaway from Totally Rad Actions, who will be giving away some goodies to our attendees!
