This was a dream come true. Ever since moving to Nashville I have dreamt of shooting with Julie Paisley of Julie Paisley Photography. I love that her images exude happiness and love in such a bright and beautiful way. If I had to pin point the emotions I feel and words that come to mind when I look at her images it would be joy, happiness, love, warmth, timeless, soft and colorful. To say that I was honored to learn from her would be an understatement!!
As a leader in the Industry she was such an amazing source of knowledge. I think the biggest take away for me personally was to keep making progress. Progress looks different for all of us. My progress with 4 littles at home looks much different than others and that’s just fine. I’ve come to realize “industry standards” are always changing in the photog word and to some degree don’t need to be my standards. If I can show up consistently for my clients, serve them to the best of my ability in a God honoring way that is respectful and meaningful I am working well. Can I always improve, YOU BET, but to dwell on the imperfect won’t accomplish anything. To hear Julie’s story and thought process on all things photography was one of the highlights of this workshop for me.
If getting to be “best friends” with Julie for two days wasn’t enough I also made some sweet connections and friendships in the photog community. I was inspired by the women that I was surrounded by. Hearing their stories and their passions was so fun and refreshing. They helped me gain even more perspective in knowing that our businesses all look different and yet are all so wonderful. This workshop was a blessing and I loved the experience. From learning valuable skills, capturing beautiful images, to making friendships it was a win all around!
The vendor list was incredible and working with so many of them was top notch. So much time and effort went into making this shoot beautiful and inspiring. I was thankful to be a part of it in this small way! I could have posted 300 more images (literally) it was just all so beautiful! I hope this inspires my brides, showcases my photography style and is able to provide any Nashville bride with an incredible vendor list! Enjoy!
