Last Saturday, 15 ladies came out to take our photography workshop. We called in the lovely Jen from i art u to teach us some skills and share her photography knowledge! Here are some shots I snapped, added with some of Jen's beautiful photos as well!
It was our first event, even though we had been talking about it for a while. Ruby and I spent weeks preparing and had probably over 300 emails back and fourth figuring things out. We had the workshop at George Key Ranch, in Placentia. It's a really nice area, they offer tours of an old historic house and lots of weddings are held here.
Delicious macarons flown in from Utah from Salt City Patisserie!
Yummy chocolate cake pops from local baker Pop Culture Desserts!
We tied up the sandwiches & chips in vintage fabric ..
and had a picnic style lunch!

Our class! Some of the most sweetest ladies around!
Thanks to the ladies who attended: Cynthia, Tiffany, Katie, Kira, Brianna, Rebecca, Vivien, and to those without blogs too! ;)
Ruby & I brought a bunch of vintage stuff from around our houses, we set up stations and had the ladies style their own tables.. They did a fantastic job, the tables looked amazing!
Even though Ruby & I had hoped to take the workshop as well, we ended up doing things behind the scenes so we missed it. But we got to step in for a bit - I learned a bit about f-stop, aperture, and iso and that was worth a million bucks to me ;) I never knew of those things before!
So that wraps it up! Lots more pretty events coming soon - we are already planning another photography workshop for those of you who couldn't make it.. and Ruby & I have some other fun ideas in mind too!
A big thank you to Salt City Patisserie for the delicious macarons & Pop Culture Desserts for the cake pops! Thanks to Jen for coming down and being so awesome. & thanks once again to the ladies who took our workshop, we are so humbled + grateful!
PS: Ruby put together this sweeeet video so you can see everything in live action! ;)
