2019 Photography Workshop’s Styled Shoot

Kast Events & Co styled wedding reception with sweetheart table in the historic wakefield barn photo

EEK! I’ve been sitting on these for MONTHS!! Waiting for them to be featured, and am so excited that I can finally share these!! First off, definitely go check out the beautiful feature on A Coastal Bride! They did such a beautiful job of laying out the editorial feature and really sharing the feel for the shoot. Secondly, I’m so excited to say these were all taken on film!! I love, love, love that I’ve officially added the title of NC Film Wedding Photographer to my resume. It’s so rewarding and is giving my images the look I’ve always wanted!

But this shoot. These workshop shoots are special. When creating these, I know it’s for so much more than me. These are for my attendees. Something for them to learn on and practice what I teach at the workshop, to help build their portfolios, and a time for them to see me actively working with a couple and going through posing flows to get genuine reactions from them. I choose only the best of the best vendors and give them the space to give their creative bests to the shoot. It’s so rewarding to see it all come together, especially one as beautiful as this.

Thank you everyone for pouring your hearts into this. The attendees and I loved it! Everything was perfect and the creativity shared was another level! You all are so insanely talented and inspire me daily to be a better artist myself!
