Wedding Chicks Feature | Webster Farms Inspiration
I'd never participated in an inspiration shoot before. I knew what they were and had considered organizing one for myself, so when I joined the Facebook group Styled Shoots by The Amburgey's and Associates. I wasn't sure if I would ever actually participate. When I actually bought my ticket to the Webster Farms shoot, I was nervous! What will it be like? Will I get along with the other photographers? Will I get the images I want? As a creative I tend to over analyze and over think everything ha!
All of my worries melted away when I arrived at Webster Farms! Not only was Katrina nice and welcoming but she had painstakingly planned and designed every part of the shoot to give all the photographers the best chance at getting the photos they wanted. The venue was decorated BEAUTIFULLY, the details were GORGEOUS and the models were STUNNING. A photographers dream!
Some may argue that inspiration or styled shoots are pointless because they aren't true to a real wedding day and although I agree I also don't think that matters! For me, the shoot allowed me to workout my photographer muscles. I was able to try things I couldn't try during a wedding day because of time, practice posing, and practice arranging details. And I have to say even though it wasn't a real wedding, it was no less hectic! We had a certain amount of time to get the shots we wanted very similar to a real wedding day! Practice is key to perfecting anything you want to be great at and photography is no different. The shoots that Katrina organizes and that I am in the process of organizing myself (stay tuned!) are an opportunity for me to continue to grow and improve for my upcoming and future clients, there's nothing better than that!
All in all my experience was excellent, I would participate again in a heart beat! The icing on the cake was that one of my favorite inspiration blogs, Wedding Chicks, featured my images from the shoot and I couldn't be more honored!
