Ena Workshops and Styled Shoot

Last month I got to be a part of the magic that was Ena Workshops. A two day workshop designed specifically for wedding professionals. 

On day one we gathered at Block Studios and learned about business basics. Branding, copywriting, legal things, social media, and SEO. Talk about information overload, there was SO MUCH to take in!

On day two we broke out into groups based on our "passions". There were florists, planners, and photographers. Our photography group was led by Jeannine Phol from Jeannine Marie Photography, and boy did she spill everything there is to know about running a photography business! The 2nd half of the day, we got our gear out and shot some photos. The floral students had made some magnificent arrangements guided by Studio C Floral, and the planning students each designed a table guided by Gretchen Culver from Rocket Science Events. It was so fun and I learned so much! 

Here are a few of my fav images from the styled shoot!
