“GODDESS” is a master class/shoot that reflects the heart & soul of Elizabeth Messina's photography. The focus of this class will be a female model with elaborate & artful styling & creative design. Elizabeth will share her extensive knowledge to help you understand how to utilize composition, natural light and direction to create a beautiful image of a woman. An essential element in Elizabeth’s photographs is her ability to incorporate jewels, florals & decor while still creating a natural feeling in her imagery. She will share all of her creative styling secrets with you. Being able to artfully pose and capture women will enhance all aspects of your photography. Learn how to create a safe space and set your subject at ease while capturing their vulnerability. This class is part communication & instruction, part observing Elizabeth’s photo, styling & posing techniques as well as the opportunity to create your own photographs. This is a unique creative opportunity that will enhance your approach and your images in reverence of all things female. Don’t miss this rare chance to learn from one of the best portrait photographer's in the world. 

This year every “GODDESS" Master Class attendee will get an opportunity to capture photographs of their own during the class. Each attendee will literally be able to stand side-by-side with Elizabeth while she guides them with thoughtful direction and meaningful support. Photographers of all levels & mediums are welcome.

The eerie calm and dull warm glow of a southeast sunset have enthralled my senses since I was a young boy. It’s almost as if time briefly stops, and you feel everything. The slow-moving air, the tingle of humidity in the atmosphere. These memories inspired the creation of a static moment in time... an amalgamation of all of my youthful presuppositions of intimacy and romance. This session will be less about the overly commercialized tangible elements... in fact, it will pivot around the intangible; “Connection”. I will teach you my process for setting a tone that gives my clients a safe place to display their connection, and truly shine in front of the camera. Most importantly, I will show you how I do it quickly... giving you the tools to walk away from even the highest-stress wedding days knowing that you “got the shot”.

Parenthood - the next big milestone after "I do". Maternity portraits are an important way to continue to tell your couples love story and expand your portfolio to continue to serve your past clients. Join me under the romantic mossy oaks of old Florida where we will capture the tenderness of new life between first-time parents.  Families can easily become repeat clients with how quickly their family is growing and changing.  I will walk you through posing an expectant mother and her sweet baby, creating genuine family connection with interaction of joy and tenderness. I'll even share my go to tricks for working with a busy child and pose an expectant mother's body along with her partner. 

The Photographers Framer will provide a special promo code exclusive to those who attend this class

This is a flash-centric extension of Echos in The Oaks. We will take our couple down to the beach for a quick wardrobe swap… and get a little wild with flash. Direct flash that is (it’s so hot right now). I will demonstrate what techniques I use to create the fun, stylish, fast-paced… and slightly sexy images that every one is asking for.

For this shoot you will need an external flash and either a sync cord or a wireless trigger set up is highly recommended. (no modifiers or light stands needed).
