We are SO excited to share our recap video of Bloom Bash Chicago by our amazingly talented friend and artist, John Stambaugh. We were first introduced to him when I (Michaela) used John as my wedding videographer. He was one of our best decisions of the whole wedding day! Since we loved him so much, we knew we had to ask him to film a workshop. One of the best parts about Bloom for us as founders, is being able to collaborate and work with other people who truly love beauty, artistry, and people. John is clearly one of those people! (PS. If you're looking for a promo film for your creative business, John is the man for the job. Or if you or a client of yours is getting married, I can't recommend him enough!)Read More

We are currently gearing up for our September workshop, The Styled Wedding Shoot workshop. We thought since this is coming up quick, we'd show you our styled shoots from LAST year's styled shoot workshop. Styled inspiration photo shoots are a wonderful tool to use to hone your photography and design skills, as well as creating something beautiful to add to your portfolio, in order to attract your ideal client. If you want to spend a day focused on honing your photography and styling skills, this workshop is for you! We have special teaching sessions on how to create and execute a styled shoot, photography tips, shot list guides, how to get published + what editors look for in publications, plus a few breakout sessions on client experience, flat lay styling and a portfolio review. We set aside an hour and a half for our styled shoot portion of the workshop, which will feature 3 separate styled vignettes, each with their own models, paper goods, tablescapes, and other beautiful details like blooms, rings, and gorgeous gowns!Read More
