We had the unique honor of covering an event with David Tutera of “My Fair Wedding” fame at the Hilton Oceanfront. Pearl Taylor of Uniquely Yours Events took charge and showcased the Hilton as I have never seen it! It truly looked magnificent complete with 12 foot ice sculptures, a live band, the most amazing food and lighting by Blue Steel Lighting. It seemed that everywhere I turned there were shots begging to be taken so I had a busy night of not only shooting David Tutera but also capturing this once in a lifetime event with the Hilton dressed to the “T’s”! We snuck a picture of Adina with David but as usual I was working the camera. And, in case you are wondering – he is actually just as nice in person as he is on the show! A true gentleman, the real deal.
Our first workshop in our shiny new studio! Our thanks go out to the Wells Theater in downtown Norfolk for allowing us to use their fabulous space for our shooting. 20 of us dodged the snowflakes and took cover in the historic theater where we kept warm and took some rather cool shots. Christ & St. Lukes Church loaned us their stunning sanctuary for some shots inside the church. Our model Rachel looked amazing in a gown from Pure English Bridal and a couple of gowns from All The Rage Virginia Beach. Brian was sporting some vintage fashions from Echoes in Time that fit in perfectly with the theme of the shoots.
We love doing these workshops, especially when they are on our home turf and we know everyone came away with great shots and new friends. Our next local No Rules Workshop will be on April 13th where we will be focusing on shooting, editing, and image critique. Only 20 seats available and they will be going quick! Our teaching and workshop tour is kicking off in January so maybe we will be coming to a venue near you!
