Jen Huang Workshop May 15-16, 2011 in New York City

 To kick off my new photo blog, I'm sharing some images from the workshop I recently attended. 
On May 15th and 16th it was my pleasure to make trek northward to attend Love Notes,
a workshop hosted by New York City wedding photographer Jen Huang.

This workshop is featured on the wedding blog Ruffled today as well!
And be sure to check out Jen's blog for her own wondrous images.

Thank you, Jen for a wonderful experience!
In depth lectures, enlightening discussion, amazing guest speakers,
and exquisitely styled engagement and bridal shoots at the South Street
Seaport and Central Park Zoo made for two days of total inspiration.

First up, the adorable Abby and Travis who modeled for our engagement shoot at the
South Street Seaport on Sunday, despite the fact that they're already happily married!

Next, our two-day stars, Naysa and Whitney who were kind enough to endure the direction of ten 
photographers for both Sunday's engagement shoot and a bridal shoot in Central Park Zoo on Monday.

We were lucky enough to have stylists from Merci New York on hand to provide details like table 
settings and make sure our "brides" were looking their best at all times. We even had an event painter!

Also on hand for our bridal shoot was our final couple, Melissa and Travis,  who endured 
a rather rainy Monday afternoon and got in some practice for their own upcoming wedding.

A huge thank you goes out to all of our models!

I also want to extend my appreciation to the presenters who extreme generosity in sharing their expert
knowledge and made for two great days. I will be sure to put everything I learned to use as best I can.
