Every year around the first of March wedding photographers from all around the world come together in Las Vegas for WPPI. (wedding photography association) The main convention, classes & tradeshow are held at the MGM Grand & there are literally hundreds of “off site” shoots & workshops to attend. This was my first WPPI so i had put a lot of planning into what i wanted to do the most, what goals i had for the week. I knew that i wanted A. to attend Sue Bryce’s class. B. take part in an styled session in Vegas & C. see VEGAS BABY!! I’m happy to say I did those few “must do” on my list & much more! Sue Bryce’s class was pretty amazing. Early, yes! But, lovely! She is an inspiring photographer & woman. I got a little starstruck when i got to have a cupcake with Robert Lim at the Canon party & when i stood next to Jasmine Star in the lobby of the hotel. I got to experience alot in Vegas & I came back ready to jump into my busiest wedding season ever! I found some new & pretty sweet wedding albums to offer to my brides & a new way to deliver wedding files. I can’t wait to share 😉
The images below are from the styled session that I took part in while in Vegas. It was hosted by Emma & Josh @ Emma + Josh photography & Couture Clicks. There were around 20 photographers and we got to work with amazing team of stylist / designers. The theme for the shoot was Les Miserables. A French Villa off of the strip was the perfect location for the theme & the details down to the crumpets were just perfect!
