The Experience 2013 | Las Vegas Photography and Blogger Workshop

"With a focus on getting published, learn from top blog editors and acclaimed photographers in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Savor a full meal, create lasting relationships, shoot gorgeous tablescapes, and capture the beauty of the Las Vegas desert."

That pretty much sold me. When you've been in business for 4+ years, the amount of relevant educational opportunities dwindles. Significantly. Most workshops are geared towards newer photographers, and back in January, I was waffling what I would do when I went to WPPI (beyond Orchestrated Stylized Shoots, of course). I needed to learn something just for me, take my business mindset to another level-- and I made it my goal to really get to know the online publication world a lot better, particularly for Orchestrated's vendors.

The Experience was hosted by four wonderful wedding bloggers and a panel of established wedding photographers and the wealth of great information was abundant. (And it's such a small world because one of the attendees and I have a local-to-Virginia Beach mutual florist friend!) :) Many thanks to the ladies and gents who helped put this together and giving us in-the-middle photogs an opportunity to learn some new details, make connections, and have a lovely Vegas experience!

P.S. Don't forget to check out Fab You Bliss, Every Last Detail, Glamour and Grace, and Mountainside Bride to see all of the photos from all of the attending photographers! :)
