This summer, I had the most amazing opportunity arise. I had only ever dreamed of working with and learning from Hunter Leone of Three Nails Photography, so when he offered another discounted workshop – I took the plunge and registered. As Courtney (Courtney Nicole Photography) and I packed up and headed out for Shreveport, we couldn’t really believe that we were ACTUALLY going to the workshop, it seemed so unreal!
^ Hunter : the brains behind all the amazingness you’re about to witness ^
Now I know this took place a few months ago and I’ve had people saying to me “OmGeee.. Like why have you waited SO long to post these!!?”
My answer to you would be : Have you ever experienced something so surreal and wonderful that you just wanted to keep it to yourself for a while because it seemed like a dream? Something so fantastical that showing it to the world would just blow their minds? Something better than anything you’ve ever imagined!?
Well, that’s what happened here. I was so blown away by the immense amount of inspiration I gained and I just had to let it soak in for a while.
This workshop included three styled shoots : Engagements, Bridals, and a full blown mock Wedding. When we first started walking to the engagement shoot, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the old Volkswagen vehicle. (For those of you who know me, you know this is one of my dream cars!) I quickly realized that this was turning into my dream shoot, every single detail was right up my ally … I was just speechless. The clothes, jewelry, accessories, color palette, textures, patterns, on and on an onnnnnn!!!
This has been the best investment of my career so far. I could have gone with just my iPhone and learned so much from Hunter. I have gained so much inspiration and motivation to stick to my dreams and do what I truly want to do without conforming to what other people tell me is “technically correct”. I hope you enjoy all the photos as much as I did/do/always will!
Oh, and there’s some great “behind the scenes” photos at the bottom of this extensive post 🙂
All of these photos were taken at the Three Nails Photography workshop.
