The Graceful Gathering Recap: My first time speaking at a conference!

Last month, I had the pleasure of speaking at my VERY first conference, The Graceful Gathering! It’s a boutique conference for wedding photographers. I gave a breakout session on how to style layflat details, and a keynote on Personal Branding

The Graceful Gathering

One of my favorite parts of attending the conference was getting to meet so many people in person! I loved meeting Courtney, the lovely lady behind it all. She is the conference leader and has a heart of gold! She truly poured so much into this conference that I’m so grateful for!

I also got to meet so many of YOU in person!!! So many of you came up to me and told me how EXCITED you were to get to meet me. I felt the exact same way! It was so fun to finally put real life faces to names I’ve seen on my screen over and over again! It makes what I do every day for my students feel so real! That was the best part of it all!! 

The conference was filled with two days of amazing speakers and styled shoots! Below are some of my favorite images from the couple of days, plus some professional images mostly from The Cannons Photography (conference leaders!) 

And don’t worry, the conference leaders took plenty of safety precautions to ensure we could safely (and legally) hold this event! Even though it can be challenging to hold during a pandemic, I’m so grateful they did with precautions to give all of us a couple of days away to soak up so much knowledge!
