Back in March I was fortunate to go to The Beyond Workshop in Nepal, put on by Nina and Wes Photography. I had always wanted to go to Nepal, and one day I saw this workshop advertised on Wedding Sparrows Instagram. I knew that I had to go. I mainly wanted to go to the humanitarian part of it, but the styled shoots were icing on the cake. Abany Bauer with Brown Linen Designs was the stylist for these shoots, she put together perfect little vignettes to photograph. Stylists make a huge difference on your wedding day, she makes everything perfect before I photograph each part of your wedding. Carrie Moe with Type A Society is a floral genius, she was able to forage the flowers for the wedding centerpiece and the wedding bouquet from the hills of the Himalayan mountains. It was so fun to watch these two work, they were so inspiring with their talent in the wedding industry. I am so grateful for the both of them, they have helped me determine my goals with my wedding photography business. I have become a better wedding photographer because of them, and I hope to continue to grow. The Fort Resort in Nagarkot, Nepal was the perfect backdrop perched on top of the mountains in Nepal. I love destination weddings, and would love to photograph more around the globe.
The fabric on this wedding dress from Carol Hannah was divine, the layers were so playful to photograph, they draped with elegance on the rock steps.
This workshop was mainly for film photographers. I love both digital and film, it was so hard to step away from my digital camera, but I love my results with my Hasselblad 503cx. All of the square photos are shot with film.
