last saturday ricky and i packed up the car with our little amos and headed up to LA for a photography workshop called snap it pretty!. ricky spent the afternoon with amos while i learned the basics of shooting manual on my SLR. it was so much fun, and had absolutely stunning setups. the workshop was hosted by these 3 lovely ladies:
ruby from my cakies, danni from oh, hello friend, and jennifer young from I ART U.
the workshop began with a beautiful welcome table with some programs, a little notebook and handmade name tags, displayed with flowing dyed crepe paper.
upon arrival we sat down on vintage lawn chairs and heard jennifer teach us all she knew about using our SLR's.
before lunch we all took time to take pictures of the beautiful displays. there was clicking of cameras everywhere!
the set up was wonderful and there were plenty of pretty things to practice our cameras on. the workshop was held at the lovely George Key Ranch and i felt like i was on an afternoon vacation. our lunches were delicious sandwiches wrapped in vintage linens, and ice cold izze sodas that we ate on some vintage quilts and blankets.
after lunch we took turns setting up displays with different unique items and photographing them. made me hungry to go flea market shopping!!!
later i will blog about our incredible give aways, the other bloggers in attendance, and our gift box filled with incredible goodies (mostly found on etsy!).
please go check out the three hostesses blogs and especially the adorable video of the whole event on ruby's!
