Something to Sticky note : fall retreat

Even though we are just breaking into spring, it might be time to look forward to fall.

The warm hues, crisp air and the smell of cider.

Due to demand and how quickly the spring retreat sold out I am beyond thrilled to say I am hosting another retreat this fall in Salt lake city UT.

blush photography-fall retreat

I decided to blend a retreat of sorts and my workshop all into one amazing weekend. I have found the most charming 1890′s victorian home to stay at in sugar house, with amazing nooks and the kind of window light I adore shooting in. So many of you have been asking about indoor shooting and this home will offer a dynamic experience with shadow and light. There will only be room for 5 attendees to stay in the home, unless you are coming with a friend and don’t mind snuggling up together. I recommend snagging a room because we will have too much fun staying up chatting into the late hours of the night. If you chose to find your own housing, you will still be cozied up drinking tea and spending time with the whole group. I promise you will come away with some amazing friends. Whats better than a room of people who share the same passions???

There will be 2 full days and one half day as a welcoming intro party. I want to have you leave feeling inspired, refreshed and ready to start putting YOU into your work.

Things we will be going over:

indoor and outdoor natural light shooting

post production

honing in on the right clients for your style with branding, styled shoots and marketing

posing and getting emotional images

getting a true connection with your clients

finding your voice

and so so much more.

Join us for a relaxing weekend and see everything I do from start to finish.

email me with any questions and for more details

Blushbybk@gmail.com

I LOVE teaching. Thats something I honestly never thought I would say. But I find so much joy in helping others find their strengths.

Id be honored to have you join us. I can promise it will be full of laughter and light bulb moments.

There is limited seats and 8 already snagged. Don’t wait.

Thank you!

ANNIE - 2014/03/20 - 8:57 pm

Cory and Paige : Engagements

I met Paige about 2 years ago while shooting her older sisters wedding.

She is just a ball of energy and filled with happiness!

I was SOOOO excited to hear she found her love and wanted me to tell their story.

These two are just CRAZY about each  and I cannot wait to be apart of their day.

Every shoot you do is wonderful! This is no exception! Thanks for sharing…

That night in paris he asked me to be his wife

 

Theres something truly magical about paris.

You know logically it exists and when you walk out of the train station you are immediately seduced.

Completely awe struck … the romance is real….

Despite our extreme exhaustion from a busy week in England, shooting, laughing and drinking tea hourly… there was nothing stopping us from getting lost in the night. We didn’t take many photographs  (thankfully we are waiting on a few rolls of film)  but here is a small peek at that one night in paris he asked me to be his wife.  A lot of you know my idea of love has been tainted over the years.  I won’t bore you with all the past fears but, one day almost 3 years ago this guy entered my life.  I didn’t understand at the time what he would become.  To say I was in a funny stage of the romance department would be a grand understatement.  Friends I would say…. we can be friends. He knew what I needed when I needed it. He was funny, honest, caring but quiet with his affections. Everyday I am so grateful he waited for the thick ice around my heart to melt. I can honestly say I have found the most amazing man,  I don’t deserve him but the kids and I are so so very blessed.

He knows me and our song says it simply and says it best.

 Ill keep the rest of my sentiments private…. but just know…. there is no better.

 Fast forward to

getting lost

 holding hands

soaking in every view

little I love yous

 and alone in the parks surrounding the most famous romantic site in paris

He got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.

Simple, quiet and perfect.

That moment is ours for keeps.

“What can I fear when I know you walk by my side”

Gorgeous Paris photos. Congratulations.

Adri and Jared : ridge farm in sussex england

Sometime I wonder how I got so lucky to make friends with the wonderful people at the photography farm.  Its a beautiful farm that doubles as a recording studio for some true rockers. Kinda cool right? Halls lined with gold albums in frames??? yes I say its cool. Plus all the charm the english country side can offer! The people are warm, happy and everyones looking for inspiration.  This beautiful couple is not only a former bride of mine BUT they just so happened to move to england after their wedding, which made finding a model SUPER easy! (side note  I LOVE THEM)  Day one of my workshop was a couples class! We shot in all sorts of different lighting. Noon, full sun, indoor light, golden hour and even snuck it a few once our sun was long gone and it began to rain! Enjoy some of my favorite images from the day and THANK you to all the amazing attendes for being so fun and open to learning! I always seem to have a hard time shooting for myself while babbling and teaching the whole time.  So as scattered as the images might be, I love them anyways.

Also special thanks to our amazing sponsors for making the day that much better.  xxoo
