Somewhere Over the Rainbow at The Photography Farm – Preview

So this week I spent most of my time hanging out with a bunch of amazing wedding photographers at The Photography Farm, hosted by photographer Lisa Devlin. We drank (way to much) wine and (too many) cocktails, some brave souls swam in the pool or hung out in the jacuzzi…oh and we even threw in a bit of learning too!

Lisa referred to her 20 years of experience to teach the students about every aspect of running their wedding photography businesses and I was there to talk to them about how to publicise themselves, get their websites and blogs up to scratch, how to use social media and what to do to get featured on wedding blogs and in magazines. I was super nervous but I ended up wittering on for quite a while!

We also did two styled shoots. The first was an engagement shoot with the gorgeous Heather & Rob who are getting hitched next April; and the second, a ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ styled shoot with yours truly…

…and yes I even held a chicken (there was also a horse and a ‘Toto’ but more of them later!)

I’ll be blogging both shoots and the behind the scenes video within the next few weeks but I just couldn’t wait to sneak peek a few images that Lisa took of me. How amazing is she? As you can also see we were truly blessed by the Gods of incredible light. Ahhh!

Big love to all the students and the amazing team of suppliers that were behind this phenomenal three-day event. Can we move in permanently please?

  1. The light is gorgeous and you are looking pretty good too 🙂
    I was thinking of booking myself on to the Photography Farm as I love Lisa’s photography, and now I wish I had. I’m looking forward to seeing the video.

  2. Do you know what the name of the irregular choice shoes are by any chance..pretty much exactly what im looking for! But can’t find them on their website =(!

  3. Lush Photos from Lisa, feeling all nostalgic, take me back to the farm!! Had such an amazing time there, really enjoyed every single minute of it! You look stunning Kat as expected, such a brilliant subject to photograph. Looking forward to showing you some of mine 🙂

    Cyanide Kiss – they were a really old style actually and we added the sparkles ourselves. maybe you could do something similar?

  5. Oh it look lush!! And you’re so brave to hold a chicken! I could not have done that, even though it’s an ultra cool looking one!! Can I have your shoes please?
