Chelsea and Michal | Wedding by Blake McCollum

"Bol to krásny svadobný deň." translates from Slovak into "It was a beautiful wedding day" and that is what it truly was. Chelsea and Michal's day was absolutely perfect. Filled with perfect people from literally all over the world (Michal is from Slovakia and so were his family and friends in attendance). Even with a language barrier a smile always translates. Glad I was able to spend the day with this group of people.  


Hidden Garden | Wedding by Blake McCollum


The "Hidden Garden" styled wedding! I recently attended my first hands on photography workshop and this was some of the results. I've been to classes where people speak (wppi) but nothing like this where you actually have a camera in your hands along side of other like minded photographers being taught by one of the best! The workshop was taught and styled by Hunter Leone and his team! (whom to me is one of the best wedding photographers currently in the business) in Shreveport, Louisiana. I met some amazing people from literally all around the world! From Texas, Los Angeles, Canada, Europe (she had a killer accent), and literally everywhere in between! 

It was an information overload for 2 days straight. I learned so much that I am going to start putting into my style and business as well, it was almost a good recharge for myself and my photography. I highly recommend if you ever get the chance to take a workshop from an artist that you look up to, do it! 

I am currently in the process of planning a few styled sessions like this myself! So if you are a vendor out there or know of one that would be interested (florist, makeup artist, hair stylist, event rentals, etc) let me know! I'd love to chat!
