Wedding :: The Jessica Claire - Orange County - Workshop - California


Who is Jessica Claire?
Well, she was named one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world in 2008 by American Photo Magazine! That's obviously quite prestigious ... but more importantly for me, she has been a source of inspiration and education for me from the very beginning of my business. I found her on the world wide web when my business was just getting started in 2006 and I have followed her closely ever since. As it goes with blog stalking I felt like I knew her personally even though we've never met or spoken.

When I realized I needed some time off and a chance to renew myself I just so happened upon the news of Jessica's workshop and everything fell into place. It was perfect. So what makes Jessica so special? I was so anxious to find out her big secrets and unveil the "woman behind the curtain." I was nervous like I was meeting a celebrity. I'm so silly like that - but you have to know that this was a big moment for me! After meeting her I learned that there are no curtains to unveil - no big enigma to why she is so successful. She just has a beautiful point of view, she's sharp as a tack, and her laugh is truly contagious. Of course people love her. Of course I loved her. And of course this workshop was a great experience for me.

The highlight of the day was the photo shoot that we did as a group. Which you're about to get a big eye-full of if you haven't already skipped past all my yaking!

The photo shoot would never have been possible without this amazing team of incredibly talented folks. The vision and communication that it took to put this thing together is beyond me! I have already listed their names and sites in my previous sneak peak post ... but I just want to list them again through out these images because these folks seriously need to be recognized for all the really hard work they did.

First of all we did these getting ready photos in Jessica's bedroom.

She is an amazing event planner but today she was an amazing model! She was our "bridesmaid" model. But her dress was pretty enough to look a bride too. I loved it!

I agree 102 is my favorite as well, but they are all very good. So glad you got some 'me' time to meet your mentor and reflect.

We did not really take turns. We all shot the same subject matter at pretty much the same time. I think there were about 20 of us. There was a good amount of space all around so we weren't too terribly cramped. And everyone was really friendly and polite. We got super close to each other at times and Im pretty sure I almost fell right on top of someone at one point. But everyone was really understanding and gracious with each other!

yea jules, i was wondering the same thing....did you all take turns?

i heart images 101 & 102 big time!

so gorgeous. and awesome. what a fabulous opportunity. but what was shooting like? were there a dozen of you vying for the perfect shot? or did everyone take their sweet turn?
