When planning my workshops I like to create something outside the box and incorporate different elements that pertain to the unique focuses in photography. This year was a big one for me, I planned my first ever destination photography workshop in Ireland and celebrated ten years in business. In addition to teaching my students about what it takes to be a successful wedding photographer, I spent a lot of time discussing and teaching about diversifying their portfolios and creating income opportunities for themselves by expanding their businesses. One of the things we discussed was the art of boudoir photography, particularly for brides and brides to be. This shoot was inspired by a pointe ballerina bride and our stunning model Brianna was the perfect fit for this shoot.
This shoot is extremely special to me, its the first fine art style boudoir shoot I have done on Film and I am in love with the results. One of my personal goals this year was to start shooting film and incorporating it into my everyday shoots and this was the first step. When the scans came back from the lab I squealed, they were almost perfect! We shot this session at the Ballyhannon coach house in Quin, Ireland. It was the perfect Irish backdrop for a romantic boudoir shoot with loads of beautiful shooting locations, flowers and greenery all around, and archways and a green house that made me swoon the moment I saw it.
