Workshop Announcement

MoJo Wedding Photography Workshop

Workshop for Professional Wedding Photographers
Feb. 8, 2014, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Maple Grove Inn, Knoxville, TN

Tighten your camera straps and pack up your camera bags, we’re excited to announce the next wedding photography workshop!  The MoJo Workshop for professional wedding photographers is Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at Maple Grove Inn Bed & Breakfast in Knoxville, TN. Boost your wedding photog mojo and attend this full-day workshop crammed full of information, instruction, and shooting!

The MoJo Workshop will include instruction and tips on booking clients, working with your couples pre-wedding day, day-of timelines, and most of all….shooting with natural light, and creating the natural light look when there is no window light (i.e., when in churches, hotel ballrooms, and other dungeon-like places of course). We’ll also be creating the look of warm sunlight on cloudy days. Take heed, you won’t be scared of using flash or strobes any longer!

The workshop at this lovely bed & breakfast also includes a full photo shoot with a bride and groom, an Anthropologie tablescape, flowers by LB Floral, wedding cake by Bradford Catered Events, bridal portraits, and more. You will walk away with photos for your portfolio, blog, and web site, and new ways of tackling lighting for indoor and outdoor wedding photography.

Guest Speaker

We will also host guest speaker Heather Watson, visual Manager of Anthropologie’s Knoxville store and owner of Knoxville-based personal and professional styling company Jayne-of-all-Trades. Heather’s background includes more than 20 years of extensive experience in visual design spanning top international fashion designers in New York — Director of Visual Presentation for Polo Ralph Lauren, Senior Visual Manager for Ann Taylor, Vice President of Marketing and Visual Merchandising for Calvin Klein, and Director of Visual Merchandising and Store Design with Cache. Heather will share her in-depth knowledge of visual design, styling, and presentation with attendees so you can better photograph details and designs on the wedding day, and style shoots for your portfolio. Heather will also be designing the Anthropologie tablescape as part of the workshop’s styled shoot.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks are included.

What to Bring: Bring the gear you would shoot with on a wedding day (camera, lenses, flash, reflector, etc.).

Reviews from our last workshop:

 “My expectations were seriously blown out of the water! I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect, but the workshop was better than I could have imagined. I knew it would be great, but it was absolutely fantastic!” – Kristyn Burnette

“I loved how knowledgeable all the instructors were. I learned so much that my head is spinning. I will recommend this workshop to anyone who asks and I would definitely attend again if another workshop was in the works! It was outstanding!!” – Jessi Pansock

“I didn’t feel intimidated. As a first timer, I was so nervous that I wouldn’t understand a few things or overwhelmed with how much I need to do. No, it was refreshing and encouraging and just what my soul needed to enter into this brand new season as a wedding photographer.” – Amber Lowe

“I loved the style, I didn’t feel like I was sitting in a class learning things I didn’t need. It was so informative & covered topics we all need to learn more about.” – Brianna Leigh Turner

“Everything was excellent! Mind = blown.” – Jayson Mullen
