Details & Schedule | A glimpse at La Petite Bloom: The Styled Wedding Shoot

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. At this one-of-a-kind La Petite Bloom Workshop, you will learn exactly how to dream up, execute, and shoot or style an inspiration shoot. With a short teaching portion, the majority of this workshop will be a hands-on experience where guests will have the chance to learn, ask candid questions of the local vendors and artists present, as well as learn from peers. Because of the incredible response we have received about our styled shoots at past Bloom Workshops, we decided to create an entire day dedicated to this area. Oozing with gorgeous touches, bride, groom and bridesmaid models, lovely tablescapes and an awe-inspiring invitation suite, no detail is left untouched. Light snacks and desserts are provided.
