There’s such a rush when you’re chatting with friends about your passion and sharing information that you’ve learned so that others don’t have to reinvent the wheel. That’s just what happened this past weekend when I hosted the How to be a Second Shooter Workshop. Melissa and Brad were amazing models and I loved the creative, learning vibe that was bouncing off the studio walls. Ladies, thanks so much for coming out!
The March workshop has always been a popular one and I’ve received a bunch of emails asking when I’ll be hosting it. Well, everyone, I’m happy to announce that workshop for March is the How to Create an Effective Post Production Workflow and use Lightroom to Edit an Entire Session Workshop.
I love this workshop because I can definitely see minds blown as I explain/show how I can turn around a complete wedding in less than a week (a regular portrait session in less than 24 hours). So, join me on MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 from 6-9pm at the studio (21B N. 7th Street, Perkasie, PA). I’ll have munchies and beverages waiting for you!
Hit me up at email@example.com to save your spot.
Oh, and because I wanted to share…below are some of the images that I captured at this past Saturday’s workshop.
It starts with a sticky note. See, I’m someone that has a vast collection of sticky notes so, for me, everything starts with a sticky note. I gave it to my Melissa and said, “make it so No. 1″ (I’m also a trekkie).
And then, she did.
My Melissa (@moediltz on Instagram) is amazingly talented. More importantly, she totally gets me. After thee years of working together, she’s become the right side of my brain and I wholeheartedly adore her and appreciate every.single.thing that she does for me. So, when I handed her a sticky with some weird geometric shapes on it, she knew exactly where I was going with it. A graphic designer by trade, Melissa just works magic and below is evidence of how she took a sad little sticky note and transformed it into the new brand of Fashion on 7th…the collaborative even between Frox, Bliss Salon and Color Studio and Isabel March Photography.
What I love about Melissa is that she sees things through to the end…everything coordinates, everything has a purpose, everything is intentional when she designs. For my couples that have received an album, you can definitely see the attention to detail that’s put into every margin, font and design spread that’s within the album. The same applies to all of the marketing and branding material that she’s created for me at the studio.
So, when we were approached with the idea of Fashion on 7th by Jill, the owner of Frox, I knew Melissa was going to hit the ground running with it and create a brand that would be able to translate the event into something that was indicative of the different businesses involved, timeless and useful for other events, clean, fresh, consistent and modern. The picture below shows the transition from sticky to tangible material…LOVE!
Fashion on 7th will be held at Isabel March Photography Studio on Thursday, May 1, 2014. There’s a 7pm Champagne Reception with the Fashion Show starting at 8pm. The after party has a dessert theme…you know I’ll be therewww.shopfrox.net. There will be swag bags for the first 50 tickets sold and from what I’ve learned, tickets sell out fast!
You’ll definitely be reading more about Fashion on 7th but I definitely wanted to get the word out there and I also wanted to tell Melissa that I’m crazy proud of her and am super lucky to have her at the studio with me (couples that have their wedding albums done by her…you’re lucky too!)
