"Swamp The Dress" session in the swamps on Louisiana!
Only open to 10 people, as per airboat capacity.
I was lucky enough to be one of those 10.
What an amazing experience! Surrounded by the beauty that is the swampy area of louisiana, just outside of New Orleans. Also surrounded by amazing photographers who took on the bride by storm! :)
The model (bride) is our friend and fellow photographer from Atlanta, Shari Zellers.
She married the love of her life last month and volunteered to "Trash The Dress" ("Swamp The Dress" - as all of us are calling it) for the entertainment of all of us. We had such a great time!
The other amazing photographers who were involved were all friends of ours, part of our amazing Pictage family. Some of us had never met in person before, though we had been talking and collaborating online for many years.
Photography conferences like PartnerCon are amazing opportunities to get to know other fellow photographers in person and to shoot alongside them and to participate in talks to better our businesses and approach to our work. There is always something to learn and there are so many people who inspire us to be better and to grow as a business entity.
This past week spent in New Orleans was a week to remember. Every year, it happens, and every year, Josh and I will be attending. We can't wait for PartnerCon 2011!! :)
THANK YOU Chris Williams, Chris Pike, Shari Zellers, Monty Jessop, Jessica Del Vecchio, Alex Abercrombie, Kelly Segre and Mike (our airboat captain, who was willing to do anything possible for us so we may have the perfect locations and light for photographing Shari!).
