Film Images from The Hybrid Collective Workshop Hosted by Lauren Fair in Nashville, TN

Last month I invested in me. I invested in my business. I surrounded myself with hundreds of incredibly talented photographers from all over the world. I met with owners of film labs to learn more about their processes and how I can deliver the best images to my clients. I met with print labs to discuss new partnerships for the fine art prints I have always offered my clients, since the beginning of my business over 16 years ago.

It’s always important to me to attend at least one industry conference each year. Continuing education is invaluable. I never want to feel like I’ve learned everything there is to know. I want to always be a student, honing my skills. Conferences are always a shot in the arm of inspiration, but sometimes they can also make you feel “less than” or overwhelmed with information and how to apply it to your business right away. As soon as those feelings creep in I try to realign them with the truth that I am enough. My worth is in Christ and I am created to be me, not anyone else. I do me. I stay true to my style, my goals and my desire to keep learning and pursuing the best ways to serve my amazing clients. Then I stop for a minute, take a deep breath and realize how deeply grateful I am that THIS is what I get to do every single day. It brings me so much joy.

I already shared the shoot hosted by the talented Eric Kelley and you can see that post here. Now, I want to share some of the film images from an inspiration shoot and workshop hosted by another leader in the wedding photography industry, Lauren Fair, who has been named Top Wedding Photographer in the world by BRIDES and The Knot. I enjoyed meeting her after following her work for a while now. She and her husband Tim are kind people and wonderfully humble educators. I love how this shoot turned out because of the efforts of an incredibly talented vendor team. My business started with film exclusively over 16 years ago. After a long sabbatical, it feels good to slowly weave film back into my workflow as a hybrid shooter, which just means that I’m an artist who chooses the medium (film or digital) that best suits the client, the situation and the light. I hope you enjoy this lovely wedding inspiration shot on film…

Leah & Daniel [Walter’s Farm Wedding]

I met Leah for the first time on her wedding day. She lives out of town, so her Mom and I discussed all the details before the big day, including the fact that Leah works for a florist and would be doing all the floral design herself. Needless to say, I was super impressed with a bride handling that big job for her own wedding. And, she did an amazing job with the farm to table style for her autumn nuptials, while remaining calm, relaxed and poised the entire day.

I hope you enjoy some of the images from this Walter’s Farm outdoor wedding and barn reception. It was simply beautiful. From the raw cotton and sunflowers in the florals, to the hand picked apples and guest favors of mason jars filled with fresh vegetables, this wedding was oh so southern.
