For those of you who didn’t see on my social media accounts the past few weeks, I went on an amazing trip to Arizona for the Showit United 2019 Conference! It was in Tempe Arizona, land of the cacti. Okay, I made that up, but seriously there were so many!
I am fortunate enough to have a cousin who is also a wedding photographer, so we went together! Not only that, but one of my best friends just moved to Phoenix so I was able to go visit a few days before the conference!
Natalie and I went to Papago Park, the desert botanical gardens (amazing!) and to downtown Phoenix. It is complete opposite from Charleston and I actually found myself missing the salty, humid air. But I did enjoy my time there!
After visiting Natalie for 3 days, she dropped me off at the conference and the fun began. Registration was first on the list, then the fun welcome party! I got to see so many of my favorite photographers including Katelyn James, Amy and Jordan Demos, Julie Paisley, Vanessa Hicks and Lauren Fair!
The next day we jumped right into learning all things business and photography! I am still trying to unwind and process all that I learned. There were tears shed, lots of laughter and so many hugs!!
I met some really amazing people and even gained some new friends throughout those 3 days. Those are the memories I will never forget. But one of my favorite times by far was being able to shoot alongside Lauren Fair in her styled shoot! I’m including some of those photos below!
In conclusion, I am most definitely going back next year. In fact, I bought my ticket the day after the conference ended!
I’ll be sharing a few more of my favorites from our styled shoots! This is just a small teaser 🙂
It would mean everything to me if I could capture your summer wedding in Charleston! Or any other destination 🙂 Send me an email with your love story and details!
