Earlier this month I was fortunate enough to attend the Engage:11 Grand Cayman conference. The Engage conferences are ongoing luxury wedding summits that bring together the best and most influential minds in the wedding industry in a non competitive environment. I had wanted to attend one for years but I was always about to have or had just had a baby every time they were scheduled. I’m so glad I was able to attend this year, though I came home to a daunting pile of emails, editing and a ridiculous bill from AT&T, the experience I had was unforgettable. I was able to hear Carley Roney, Sylvia Winestock, Bryan Rafanelli, Brian and Andy Marcus, Donna Von Breuning and Barbara Corcoran speak, just to name a few. The days were packed full of presentations but we did get a break to sail a catamaran out to a shelf in the ocean where you can swim with stingrays and I got to touch the silky underbelly of a HUGE ray. Very cool.
Can’t wait until the next one!
My adorable nephew attends Sundrops Montessori and I donated a portrait session to their Holiday auction last year. The Whitney family bought the auction item and opted to do their pictures on the beach. It was one of those humid, summer days where it looked like the sky was about to open up and drop torrential amounts of rain but it never did. The clouds were thick, fluffy and grey and the lighting was spot on perfect for an afternoon at the beach.
I love to photograph food at weddings but it’s usually during the frenzy of dinnertime and I always feel like I’m holding up somebody’s supper or interfering with a busy server’s job. Photographing ice cream yesterday was no less hectic, as my subject wilted the longer I admired it or considered my camera angle. Lucky for me, a friend’s puppy was there to clean up any casualties…talk about a lucky dog!
