I’m very excited to announce that our A Lovely Creation Central Coast Experience is happening October 27-30th for wedding industry creatives/photographers! More details at the website. There are only 8 rooms available in the estate, and a select few single day seats open. So this will be a small group of less than 12 people per day to allow for important fellowship and space to watch & learn!
This event is a blend of our “Italy Experience” workshops with a fall California theme. The all inclusive or single day registration opens Wednesday at 8am! There are 3 days of styled shoots along with an perfect blend of retreat, fellowship, worship, inspiration staying alongside the creating theme.
Everything about this week will be clearing the way and simplifying to be a better creator. We’ll be emphasizing a proper life/work balance, and be opposed to hype, and frills that tell us to compare ourselves with others and do what everyone else does. We will be developing who we were created to be, unique, different, serving and doing what we in a creative way that gives us freedom and brings joy.
I look forward to seeing you there! Please email us for any questions!
Sign up with the early bird discount before the rates go up on Sept 30th, or the rooms at the Estate at Greengate Ranch become filled up!

With much excitement we are proud to announce L’Arte del Martrimonio, a luxury photography and design workshop being help November 11- 15 on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. Brought to you by Alchemy Fine Events, we are offering photography students the chance to learn under the talented shutterbug Jana Williams, and myself. And designers and planners will get to learn under the direction of Vanessa Van Wieren of Alchemy Fine Events with beautiful styling and florals by Krista Jon from Archive Rentals. In addition to these creative talents we are also very excited to announce that Rebecca Crumley, photo editor of The Knot Magazine will be there to instruct, critique, share trend forecasts and talk about how to get published in this competitive market.
Students will be staying at the luxurious Hotel Imperiale and shooting at the incredible Villa Passalacqua, vacation home to Elton John, Victoria & David Beckham to name a few, in addition to outdoor and lake locations. Student’s will get to work with each teacher in smaller groups as well to learn not only technical skills but also how to communicate more clearly with each other as the designer photographer relationship is crucial. We will also be offering specialized breakaway groups such as boudoir shooting with Jana and portraits with myself while planners and designers will be able to talk about the details the clients love, styling tips and tricks, and walking through the creative process with the ultimate goal being client success; and of course, getting published! Students will get to work with an incredible level of talented models and couture fashion designers such as the swoon-worthy gowns by Galia Lahav and other beautifully crafted works of art.
