1. Wedding Shootout | Madison, Wisconsin

    Wedding Workshops 2018

    Join us on October 9, 2018 in Madison, Wisconsin for a Wedding Shootout Event!

    We love weddings. The stories, the families, the emotion, and the pure joy held by our dearly beloved couples. The narrative we tell is one that has a beginning, middle, and end. Come and join us for this shootout to observe and shoot with us for an elaborately and beautifully designed wedding scape.

    Our wedding focus is on natural compositions as well as the couple’s details, so we’ll create breakout groups giving you an opportunity to practice and build portfolio work of couples, flowers, pastries, stationary, jewelry, and much more. These are very coordinated, so you can explore your compositions in a pressure-free environment.

    While we will go over some shooting techniques, this is largely an opportunity for participants to shoot portfolio material and work with a gorgeous full wedding day setup.

    A shootout differs from a full workshop in that rather than explicitly teaching about the total process (product, experience, and business), we focus on the product production portion with a beautifully styled full wedding shoot. Once we gather, photography begins almost right away.

    The entire day from getting ready through the first dances will be stationed out. We will specifically cover the following setups:

    Getting Ready


    First Look


    Bride and Groom Posing

    Wedding Party

    Table Scape

    First Dances

    As the evening light becomes optimal, we’ll work even more closely with our models for various couple setups, flow posing, dancing, and authentic interaction. We purposely keep the group small and make sure everyone has an opportunity to take great photographs. We actively encourage people to explore techniques outside of their comfort zone, and we’ll rotate people into the best locations.

    If you’re a beginning looking to start photographing weddings or an experience professional seeking gorgeous portfolio imagery, sign up now to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Please contact us with any questions ahead of time. We’d love to have you shoot with us!

  3. Tick Kit for Photographers

    Hello tick season!  Those gross creepy crawlies create havoc on everything they come in contact with.  Last year I was shooting a family session and in the middle of shooting, we found an embedded tick on the little boy.  The parents and I were not prepared.  No one had a tweezers and the kid was in hysterics.  Since this incident, we have outfitted all of our vehicles with a “Tick Kit!”

    A Tick Kit is everything you need in case you find an embedded tick during your session (or anytime when you are away from home).

    It includes:
    Note cards
    Alcohol wipes

    All of these items can be purchased on Amazon or your local Target or Walmart.  Click HERE for everything you need on our Amazon page.

    If you find a tick attached to your skin, there’s no need to panic—the key is to remove the tick as soon as possible. There are several tick removal devices on the market, but a plain set of fine-tipped tweezers work very well.

    How to remove a tick

    1. Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible.
    2. Pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don’t twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal.
    3. After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol or soap and water.
    4. Never crush a tick with your fingers. Tape it to the card and save it for potential identification.
