Imagine yourself at a ballroom dance competition. There was an organized chaos between the dance coaches, the dancers, the production team, the judges, etc. I felt this type of tension and excitement at my afternoon couples photo session. Katrina & Blake were our models, but were also photographers presenting at the conference. One of my favorite wedding photographer couples, Amy & Jordan Demos were our mentors for the night and 10-12 eager photogs photographed this beautiful couple before the sun set over the Palm Springs mountains.
Once we found the perfect destination, the couple was ON! Their passion and love for each other was so FIERY. Like a dancer, he was her frame. He held her tight, twirled her, and gently kissed her. You could hear the sighs from the photogs as he whispered sweet nothings in her ear to get her to smile. Their body language and love for each other was infectious. The sun is setting way too fast! I need to shoot more of them! Amy & Jordan offered so many great tips. I was exhausted, but felt like a better photog when the session was over.
If you are a portrait/seniors photographer, I would encourage you to attend the BLINK conference. Attendees received many nuggets of information from successful photographers in their genre, brand and SEO strategists, legal consultants, business coaches, and printing companies to help you become more successful with your businesses.
Just like ballroom dancers who completed their successful performance, the group and models finished their choreographed dance at sunset. Katrina and Blake, thank you for your patience and allowing 10-15 photographers to stick our cameras in your faces! Amy & Jordan, thank you for showing us about the Expo Disc and many other amazing tips. Blink Conference, thank you for creating the wonderful group of creatives to celebrate our work and to honestly practice the community over competition movement.
