Workshop Completed!

Yesterday in conjunction with Evan Baines we hosted the Bridal Portraiture workshop and it was absolutely fantastic! We had such a great time teaching, sharing, as well as getting to know the photographers who came out. Thanks to our awesome models, Dustin, Lindsey, and Kathy, as well as our pro makeup artist, Sherita Leslie. And of course a big thanks to Mel of The Velvet Trunk and Krystal Mann of Mint and Sage who lent us the use of their great studio at The Factory for the morning sessions and the afterward critiques.

Evan and Zach at their finest...

After the morning tutorials, the afternoon consisted of 6 hours of instruction/shoot time. Everyone was split into 2 groups, half going with Evan, the rest with Zach, and then after 3 hours the groups swapped. Below we will show behind-the-scenes photos as well as an image or two from the setup that Zach demonstrated and shot.

This, my friends, is the lovely Amanda Baines, who is the wife of Evan Baines. Random note... For any of you bacon lovers out there, I suggest you visit this original creation of Amanda's...

...and the group!

Our models did a great job, and the feedback we received from this workshop was extremely positive.
Sorry for those who were unable to make it, but stay tuned for the dates of the next one coming up! We are planning on Spring and are looking to incorporate more advanced techniques as well as even more shoot time and hands on with set up.

Thanks to everyone who came out!! We cannot wait to see more of the great stuff you guys did!


  1. Hey guys! Thank you so much for the opportunity to pick your brains and learn such awesome stuff! My new gear is on the way and I will be putting all this new knowledge to the test! I am thrilled beyond words at how awesome my shots looked and that I could really do this myself! I am officially a GrayPhotography blog stalker and I look forward to seeing you more at the PUG meetings! It's so nice to have true friends in this business!Thanks again! You guys ROCK! :)
