As usual, the SoCal ShootOut people did this right!  This was the biggest and best event yet – to celebrate the One-Year Anniversary of these awesome workshops.  I had such a blast working with all different types of models, photographers, locations, and lighting.  And I can’t say enough about how great the group leaders were!  They were so nice and so helpful and so giving of their time.  I want to be like them when I grow up!  It was very, very appreciated.  I felt like I got a lot out of the experience and can’t wait for the next one.

We did 6 rotations, including a engagement shots, the bride getting ready, details of the wedding, bridal portraits, the ceremony, and the romantic couple.  I will be posting some of my favorites through the week (as I get around to editing).  It will be hard to choose my favorites!

And now the thank-you’s.
