carlybish I purposely scheduled nothing for the following three days of @vineandflourish specifically so I could process everything. I'm so grateful for this renewed sense of inspiration going into this wedding season. While @kristenmarieparker and I were the ones teaching, I feel like I've grown so much in the last 48 hours. If this is how I feel after the first workshop, I can't wait to see what happens in November. www.vineandflourish.com 10h

carlybish I took this photo while second shooting for my friend @kristenmarieparker a couple years ago. There were a couple years when I didn't second at all. After second shooting like crazy the first two years of my career, I took a major break from it the following two seasons. The years I only shot my own weddings, my growth as a photographer was dramatically less. The work was good--really good. But I found myself relying heavily on the same moves for every shoot. And if you think of yourself as an artist as much as you do a photographer, those same moves can be soul sucking. I knew I needed to be pushed if I was going to turn my stagnant creativity into meaningful art. So when Kristen invited me to second for her at this wedding, I went for it. It was my first time second shooting in years. But shooting alongside a talented friend pushed me more than I'd experienced in a very long time. It was hugely eye opening and inspiring.
Second shooting is now a regular part of my yearly goal of becoming the best photographer and artist I can be. Not THE best photographer, but MY best photographer. Because ultimately, comparison leads to burnout, but making yourself your biggest competition leads to work that satisfies your artist's heart.
That said, @kristenmarieparker and I still have seats available for @vineandflourish on May 24th and we've opened registration for our Nov 2nd date, as well.
This workshop is specifically for artists and photographers looking to create their best, most inspired work. It's about relying on the strength of your clients' connection instead of the location to create a beautiful and meaningful portfolio.
We'll discuss shooting, workflow, client connection and communication, social media, and how to avoid burnout after a jam packed season. We're also putting together an amazing couple's shoot to inspire your own portfolio.
Join us for a day of community, learning, and energizing, to jumpstart your season and make your proudest work.

Go to www.vineandflourish.com to register.

carlybish I am feeling so inspired, you guys. This year has already proven to be so special and we haven't even reached full-fledged wedding season! So the best is yet to come!

That said, I'm pleased to announce that @kristenmarieparker and I have released our November 2nd date for our @vineandflourish workshop this fall. You can still register for our spring date on May 24th, or just go to November's! Either way, both are open and we can't wait to have you. Check out the website for more information >>> www.vineandflourish.com
