I’m finding it hard to put the experience that was The Photography Farm into words. It’s an amazing three-day workshop that’s so much more than a workshop; rather it’s like a group of friends getting together and discussing their businesses, getting advice from everyone else (but especially from the talented Lead Farmer Lisa Devlin and Kat Williams of Rock ‘n Roll Bride fame!). And while we weren’t friends when we arrived, because we had never met before, I think it’s safe to say we were friends by the time we left. And that, actually, is part of Lisa’s mission statement.
The second and third days of the farm are devoted to talks and discussions on everything from post-production to blogging to running your business efficiently. But the first day…ah, the first day is devoted to some amazing styled shoots, which are set up just for us, and which basically blew me away. We started with an engagement session for one of Lisa’s real-life couples, but I’m going to share that at a later date, since this post is already getting slightly photo-heavy. So the following photos are part of the “Hippy Luxe” wedding shoot, complete with a real-life couple with dreadlocks, a Moroccan-feel tent, and the most phenomenal twig headdress I’ve ever seen in my life.
