Earlier this month, this Spokane wedding photographer had the absolute pleasure of traveling to Palm Springs, California to attend a hybrid photography workshop with Kirk Mastin, and it was so amazing to shoot in California’s famous soft light! Kirk arranged for Meaghann and Andrew to spend some time in front of our cameras at the Ace Hotel, which was a total dream. The palette of the Ace is beautifully neutral, completely hip, and totally vibrant all at the same time, which made it fun to shoot in different settings within the property. We began our session by renting some fun props from the front desk, and we ended in a quiet setting outside the courtyard, where Meaghann and Andrew were able to enjoy snuggling up to each other next to a lemon tree, and under a trellis of greens.
I’ve been working little by little this past year to incorporate film photography back into my shooting regime, and the results have been phenomenal! I was lucky enough to earn an undergrad degree in Fine Arts, concentrating my studies on photography, before digital SLRs took over and saturated the market, which means I learned photography the old-fashioned way: by measuring the light around me, carefully composing and shooting an image, developing each roll of film by hand, and hand-crafting images both in black and white and in color. It was such a thrill to finally see those images appear in the dark room! I remember feeling that same thrill when I bought my first digital SLR saw my images appear instantly on the back of the camera, and that’s why I’m so excited to be combining these two techniques to offer my clients a special blend of hybrid photography that is rare and unique. I love blending timeless photography techniques with modern to create wedding and engagement photos captured in the most impactful way possible.
A special thank you to Ting Makeup & Hair for Meaghann’s beautiful hair and makeup!
