On Tuesday I had the honor of hosting our June Orange County Shoot and Share meet up, which was a mock wedding reception. I am a leader in the Shoot and Share community and honored that I get to host of these events every month! This one is especially amazing because we have the Yodsukars who taught everyone how to light such reception events as first dance, toast, cakecutting and even party dancing. We had 35 photographers from all over the Orange County area come to learn, eat some good food, mingle and most importantly network. Special thanks to the Yodsukar’s for providing amazing and hilarious dance images! Special thanks to Signature Party Rentals for linens, Expressionary Events for the florals, El Burrito Grill for the amazing Mexican food, Sweet Traders for our gorgeous wedding cake, and my mother-in-law for helping me set everything up and down!!! If you are a Shoot and Share photographer in the Orange County or LA County area be sure to check out Facebook groups under Shoot and Share Orange County and Shoot and Share Los Angeles. Not only do you get to learn from some amazing photographers in our local community but you get to network and we all are there for each other to grow our businesses! Our next meeting will be held on July 8 in the evening, here in Long Beach and were to be having a barbecue poolside and learn how to light and write with sparklers!
Huge thanks to our amazing bride and groom, Emma and Josh Smith!
