 You didn't sign up to be a writer when you decided to do what you love for a living. Three cups of coffee in and still staring at a blank screen? Been there.

The Ballerina Effect

sarah carpenter

In the quest to create beautiful photographs for you clients, client work isn’t enough. It’s up to us to do the personal work. Mine just happened to begin with ballerinas. Join me in my discussion of why personal work is important for understanding your own personal aesthetic and for giving the world you best art.

Join us at the stunning River Bottoms Ranch as we explore a story of timeless femininity and elegance, envisioned for the modern day wedding. Inspired by the juxtaposition of traditionally bridal fashion elements like pearls and satin gowns with a minimalist, clean approach to styling, this luxury-level shoot will include a real couple, a "lived-in" tablescape, detail vignettes, and multiple fashion looks. A neutral color palette will ensure a seamless blend into your wedding portfolio, elevating your aesthetic with a fresh look.

The Modern Traditionalist

d'arcy benincosa

In this wedding day editorial, we pay homage to Toni Morrison’s works drawing from her use of impactful imagery, lyrical writings and diverse character use. 

Classic literature has long inspired my photography and love of the visual narrative as told on film. This shoot aims to provide attendees with an epic portfolio piece that is both relevant and dripping with depth. Set against the mountains of Park City, details will include real wedding day components including a lush ceremony set up, detailed tablescape and real couple. Attendees will also receive teaching materials equipping them with tips and feedback on capturing storylines more powerfully through their work.
