Bay Area Photography & Videography Workshops 2015 - Announcing The Vivify Workshop - A Livermore Styled Shootout

We are so excited to be teaming up with Mariée Weddings and some AMAZING vendors from all over California to put on a MASSIVE styled shoot down in Livermore later this year! We so wish when we were just starting out to have had an opportunity like this to build our portfolio. Also more importantly, to reach out to other photographers in the industry for support and community! 

Being in the photography and videography industry, we have learned the importance of community within our industry peers. You need people to relate to and bounce ideas back and forth. We know what it's like to struggle with this and not know who to look to. Now that we have an amazing group of friends who are photographers and videographers, we've realized how important this community aspect can be! We're not helping lead this workshop to make money, to spread our name, or any of that. We honestly just want to see others succeed and that is why we think this is such a great opportunity! This workshop is exclusively open to photographers and videographers and was designed to harbor creativity, community, and to help photographers and videographers of all levels expand their business.

We've seen it first hand. Workshops and collaborative events like this can be so beneficial for creatives! We're firm believers in "showing what you want to shoot" and this is a great way to kickstart that aspect of your portfolio. If you're wanting to shoot higher end weddings with gorgeous details, it's crucial to have a portfolio which is full of those details. Having what you want to shoot on your website attracts brides who value having similar weddings!

Collaborating with others can bring new life to your creativity and that's why we love the name Vivify. It means to bring life to something, and we truly think this workshop will bring new life to many photographers businesses! We specifically designed this workshop to be very relaxed and open ended to hopefully give space for photographers to network with each other and vendors, all while building their portfolio full of those amazing details. There will be three couples and four solo brides join us for the shoot, all styled by talented professionals of course! There will be many different "shooting stations" available for shooting so photographers and videographers can leisurely roam the amazing Reinstein Ranch property shooting however they please.

Included in this massive vendor collaboration is Pleasanton Rentals, The Bloom Bar, Lefty Lady Chalk Board, The Idea Emporium, J'aime Bridal, Ma Petite Maison Cakes, His Jewels Creations, and so many more!
