Outstanding workshop to launch 2006!

On Monday and Tuesday I had the priviledge to attend the Joe Buissink and Yervant workshop in Miami. The event was sponsored by GraphiStudio, the company that we’ve partnered with to produce our wedding albums.

It was also exciting to meet Ulysses and Jenni, a husband and wife photography team from New York. U, as he is affectionately known, and Jenni are really active on the Digital Wedding Forum and they’re genuinely good people and are also good friends with Joe and Yervant.

As true masters of their craft, Joe and Yervant are generally seen as two of the premier photographers in the world. Yervant comes from Australia and he’s won nearly every award a wedding photographer can win. Joe is from Southern California and he’s photographed the weddings of Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Christina Applegate, Hillary Swank and Christina Aguilera, just to name a few. While Joe’s style is very photojournalistic, Yervant’s is much more fashion-like.

The insights these two have into the world of wedding photography are just astounding. Of course I took pages and pages of notes and can’t wait to review them over the next few days. This is indeed an inspiring way to start out the year.

Photo Comments: The shots of the bride were shot with our new Nikon D200, with a 2.8, 70-200mm VR lens, standing in the corner on my tip toes shooting over the heads of about 40 other photographers...including Yervant himself....LOL. All available light!
