We have some gorgeous photos to share with you today!!!
We had heard about (and were secretly drooling over) photography workshops across the US and were crossing our fingers that one day we’d get to style one a little bit closer to home!
Workshops are a noble way to share your talents and knowledge with others and they are a valuable investment in a budding photographer’s growth. Trends in the creative/wedding industry tend to move slowly from the coasts to the midwest so we were expecting it to be a while before we’d get to cross this off our bucket list. Needless to say, we were SOOO happy to come across Alex & Val’s Photography Workshop just a few months ago!!
Collaborating with Alex and Val was so much fun and there are so many beautiful details about this shoot that we love – the chairs, the rings, the desserts, the flowers… can we just talk about the flowers for a second? The flowers by Shelly Sarver are stunning! They feature peonies, ranunculus, air plants, hellebores, double tulips, roses, and tons of other beautiful flowers. ALL the heart eyes right here!
