Last November, I was fortunate enough to attend the first Reach the Workshop, hosted by, Photographer Carlie Statsky, and Allison Silber, Owner of Engaged and Inspired. The workshop was located nearby in stunning Carmel Valley at a popular wedding venue called Holman Ranch. It was my first time visiting this venue and it was nothing short of spectacular. I was a bit reluctant to attend a photography workshop, but I got an offer I couldn't refuse and saw the opportunity to flex my photography skills. Since I have a full-time career in MedTech in Silicon Valley, my photography takes a back seat usually. I would love to be able to quit and start a new one as a PROFESSIONAL Commercial Wedding Photographer, but that just isn't feasible at the moment. Maybe in due time, though.
Below are some of the photos I took from the afternoon styled shoot on day two. Carlie, Allison and their team really put together a beautiful scene that made it possible for us to photograph. If you're skeptical about attending a photography workshop, I'd say this one is a great introduction for the Bay Area. I heard this year's workshop is going to be at Costanoa Lodge and it will definitely be amazing so, check it out!
