Jessica Claire Workshop Feb 2010

This past Tuesday the 23rd I went to Jessica Claire's workshop in Orange County California. Jessica is a brilliant photographer and one of my favorites. I want to say thank you to Jessica for offering such a great workshop and to all that were involved in making everything so perfect.

Workshop: Jessica Claire,
Stylist: Duet Weddings,
Flowers: Kate Holt of Flowerwild
Models: Braedon & Lindsay Flynn,
Cake: Erica O'brien,
Linen & pillows: La Tavola
Rentals: Classic Party Rentals (flatware and cake table)
Rentals: Badia Design (Spanish door, iron screen, Moroccan poufs)
Plates/glassware: Anthropologie CEVD

One of the first things we did in the workshop was introduce ourselves, what we like to photograph and to say something we think is interesting about our self. Well I was the third one to have to talk and I couldn't think of anything very interesting to say. I said "I have three boys, married and love my family". That is all very true but I assume not very interesting to most people. OK I know this blog is about the workshop but I have been thinking about it ever since I returned home. I have thought of some things now that might be of some interest. 1. I shoot archery, I have my own compound bow. 2. I love to scrape book. 3. I am finding that I really enjoy cooking and love to watch Rachel Ray. There!! Back to the workshop. Jessica talked shop for about 3 hours, we had lunch and then she took us out to shoot. Everything was so beautiful, the couple Braedon and Lindsay Flynn were adorable (actually married). I can not express how much fun I had and how much I learned about photography and myself. To top it off at the end of the day she had dinner ready for us. I have posted some pictures from the day, notice all the vibrant colors and all the detail..
