As many of you will know, I find it very hard to keep my mouth shut when I’m seriously excited about something. This was one of those instances (I tweeted and facebooked about this already!) I received an email from Christina Brosnan of Brosnan Photographic in Ireland asking if I would like to be flown out to Dublin in September to speak at a photography conference with a difference that she was hosting! The icing on the cake came when she told me that the other speakers were none other that Rock n Roll Bride favourites Feather Love Photography and epic planning and styling team Bash,Please – both from California!
Seriously, like she even had to ask!?!? As you can imagine I’m pretty darn excited about this. I hope to see some of you there! Spaces are limited to just 25 attendees so book your tickets as soon as you can – there is even an early bird discount if you book before the end of March. Squeeeeeeal!

We’re bringing together the talents of alternative, indie, vintage wedding photographer Noa Azoulay-Sclater of Feather Love Photography and luxury wedding market styling team Paige and Kelly of Bash,Please. These ladies are leaders in shaping the alternative wedding industry and setting trends internationally. Love to Learn 2011 is not going to be a technical workshop. We are not going to focus on how to use a camera or edit your photos, but we are going to help you develop your own artistic style, find your strengths as photographers, and target the right market.
This 2 day event with 3 fabulous guest speakers and special guest will get you motivated, inspired, and lead you to make the right choices for your business. We want you to remember what made you passionate about wedding photography!
The Guest Speakers:
Noa (Feather Love Photography): Based in San Diego, Feather Love Photography has become a well known name in the wedding photography industry in America. Noa loves weddings that are a bit different and is influenced by the look and feel of old movies, record covers and the photographic style in old penthouse-style magazines. Noa has been published in several international publications with a recent publication in People Magazine of her wedding photos of Emily Deschanel and David Hornsby.
Noa will be focusing on inspiration and guiding us to find our own unique style and voice as photographers. Day one will be filled with deep discussion and motivation on giving us a push to become better artists. With her success with Rue Magazine, E! Entertainment, The NY Times, interviews in Photo Pro and The Photography Parlour, and personal workshops, Noa is helping photographers grow as individuals and pushing for change in the industry. Noa will also lead us in a styled wedding shoot, because what is a photography workshop without a shoot right?!
Paige & Kelly (Bash,Please): This hot California duo (also the creative geniuses behind Emily Deschanel and David Hornsby’s wedding) is taking the luxury wedding market by storm. With features in publications such as Once Wed, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart,Rue Magazine, 100 layer cake (the list goes on and on), Bash,Please are on America’s event stylers most wanted list. They are also the creators behind HITCHED, one of the most innovative wedding events around.
On day two Paige and Kelly will focus on the business of weddings. Being a well sought after styling team these girls have lots to offer on targeting the luxury wedding market. They will discuss marketing your brand, staying true to your art, and building relationships within the wedding industry.
