Modern Miss Havisham - The Photography Farm

I recently had the pleasure of attending The Photography Farm run by the lovely Lisa Devlin. The idea behind the farm is to learn, shoot and be inspired and I certainly came away having taken some of my favourite photos, feeling more confident and made some great friends. I honestly can not put into words how much fun I had and it was great to catch up with one of my brides, the gorgeous Roo, who did the most amazing job at modelling for one of the shoots.

After the farm, I feel excited and inspired about the year ahead. Lisa put here heart and soul into the workshop and I am truly grateful for the experience. She pushed me in so many ways. To start with I was terrified by the thought of shooting in front of all those people, people who I admired and looked up to, and I was completely out of my comfort zone, having never really been a part of such a big styled shoot before. But the moment Lisa started shooting and I heard everyone's cameras clicking, I felt at home. Thanks to Lisa's encouragement, I know I am on the right path and I know where I want to be.  My head is full of ideas and I am looking forward to putting plans in place to stay inspired and creative and give my couples the best experience on their big day.
I hope these photos do justice to the amount of blood and sweat everyone put into the shoot.
