What else can you do while living in a house with 19 wedding photographers?
Relax. Be comfortable being ugly. Jammies. No makeup. No egos.
Learn from each other. Everyone gave a presentation involving their skills, which is why we called it a “Potluck!” You must bring something to the table!
And, take a million iPhone images. At least, I did. I brought my professional cameras and they sat useless in a closet.
Thank you, my friends, for creating and supporting an incredible week in the Hamptons.
I learned so much from you, and truly enjoyed laughing with you!
It’s rare to see photographers so happy to share their pricing, their marketing, their secrets.
I’m so happy to have friends that are so incredibly supportive.
We all make images,
This week was about sharing.
I will always remember how great it feels to be surrounded by others who love the same thing.
This is, quite possibly, my favorite image I shot all week. Mark Janzen and Kate McElwee having fun behind a large billboard in Shelter Island.
Jenny DeMarco and I joined in!
Mark Janzen and Ed Atrero braving the cold for some images.
Thanks, Mark, for taking these next two for me!
We were supposed to jump on the count of three… hmm!
Joe Appel tries on Kate’s coat… good fit!
I fell in love with this tree in Shelter Island.
Joe, Kate, Gulnara and I brave the wind in the name of iPhoneography.
Jenny strikes a pose!
Cool Ed with even cooler light.
Gulnara gets Photo Bombed while sporting perfect accessories for the weather.
Ben and Kate.
Another tree… I grew up in N.C., so yes, I adore trees!
Lovely ladies Sherry and Jenny.
My bestie Kate and myself.
And a little heart in the trees! Look to the bottom right! Awww!!
Ben and Caroline.
Shooting the shooter, Kate, and watching my background!
Ed, Gulnara and Kate wait for the caffeine to kick in!
What a week! Thanks, James, for the photo! Who said photographers couldn’t pose?
Much love to my friends Kate McElwee, Mark Janzen, Nadine Latief, Genevieve and James Nisly, Joe Appel, Sherry Pickerell, Gulnara Samoilova, Julie Lowry, Jenny DeMarco, Caroline and Ben, Britney and Joe (thanks so much, Britney, for the lovely new logo!), Steve Koo, Mike Garrard, Aga Matuszewska, and Ed Atrero!
