a week in seattle- alpine northwest workshop

I'm back! Fresh ideas, fresh perspective, not necessarily feeling recharged (jet lag is a bitcccchhh)! But so, so excited to share these images with you! I attended Alpine NorthWest Workshop in Olympic Peninsula, just outside of Seattle this week.

 The instructors, Melissa Marshall, India Earl, Anni Graham and Kathryn Gillespie all shared such amazing ideas, creative techniques and their own personal struggles and successes in the photography business. Being the only international "student" there, I think it was super important for me to build relationships with others there, and I'm so glad that I did! Bouncing ideas off of other amazing experienced/ new photographers was such a good way to spend the week. HUGE thank you to our real life couples that trecked up the mountains in wedding dresses and froze their bums off all for the love of the art!

After a few intense days of photographing, editing and learning I'm so happy the following days were extremely relaxing, spent drinking good wine, eating good food, whale watching, and enjoying the company of the people of Seattle! 

Having this experience, learning new things, I really hope my present/future clients can trust my vision and let me capture their special love <3
