At the beginning of this month, I had attended the Hybrid Collective Conference for photographers in San Diego. It was the best thing I have ever experienced and done for my business that impacted me in such a positive way. I gained so much knowledge from some of the best photographers in the U.S. and they also helped me to open my creative mind more when I shoot. The area is so beautiful and I’d love to photograph a San Diego wedding one day to add to my destination portfolio and also so I can visit my family that lives there more often!
During the conference, I attended two shoots while there that were put together by amazing photographers with incredible talent and they were the most amazing shoots I have ever done! It also helped to learn more about shooting with my film camera and understanding metering for different lighting. I even got my film back and was impressed with how well I really did! Below I am sharing my images from the first shoot put on by Paul Von Rieter at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa and it was beyond what I could have ever imagined! The florals were gorgeous and overflowing with small and big textures of flowers that were locally sourced, the couture gowns were elegant and the couple was stunning. Tanner and ML are such a beautiful couple together and so in love being romantic and happy throughout the shoot. I wish this was something I could do once a week but hopefully I will be able to do another one soon!
