Just over a week or ago, I had the insanely amazing privilege of being asked to be a guest speaker in the Creative Live course “Getting Published: Shooting an Editorial Wedding with Jasmine Star“. We spent what seemed like a very fast two hours discussing from my perspective as an editor and a stylist, guidelines for photographers that want to see more of their weddings published. As part of Jasmine’s course, she assembled a very talented team of Seattle weddings designers to illustrate these techniques! Today, we are sharing with you that gorgeous shoot! If you are interested in purchasing the entire course online, you can head here!
If you love the idea of learning how to shoot weddings for publication, we’ve got some exciting news! We’ve just announced the release of our next Shoot This Not That workshop, which will take place October 10th and 11th in Montecito, California. The workshop will be a two day expansion on the short two hour intro that I taught with Jasmine. Not only will we go into further detail about the concrete steps you can take to aid you in publication, but we’ll also allow you the opportunity to work hands on with editorial material and industry pros. Plus, you’ll have the rare opportunity to get in deptch feedback on your very own submissions to find out what you might be missing and how you can improve to meet editorial standards! To find out more about our workshop and all that we’ll be covering and including, check out Shoot This Not That. Be sure to nab a seat before we fill up!
Now, without further ado, a very special recap of Creative Live! Very special thanks for Jasmine Star for sharing her gorgeous images and for being such a generous teacher! Also, major props to designer Kelsey Eads of Sugarcomb for all styling!
