Lost in Wonderland

Lost in Wonderland Workshop

AH! Ladies! Saturday is ALMOST here! I cannot begin to explain the excitement I feel for this workshop! I have absolutely loved doing every single mentoring session, boudoir marathon, styled shoot-out and workshop in the past but this one... this one I am pouring all of my heart in to! I am giving away literally every secret I've ever used and learned in this wonderful business. I'm so very thankful for each of you that have been by my side, purchased mentoring sessions, purchased workshops, purchased coaching sessions and even those of you who are brand new to VRP! Thank you!

Ok, so on with the mushy stuff! (I promise, I won't cry at the workshop... *maybe*)... Be sure to grab your Lost in Wonderland badge below to share the excitement!!! Feel free to download it and use it as you wish!

Saturday is a jam-packed day filled with lots of amazing things! The weather is looking AMAZING so far! Our workshop is going to take place at Crystal Lake / Mathis Park in Hopewell, VA. We were planning on shooting by the river in Hopewell, however, I went down there and they have taken away the restroom access unless you purchase entry to the museum. Which we are not. lol And I'm fairly sure you ladies would like to be able to use the restroom if needed!!!

  • DSLR Camera & Lenses
  • I shoot with the 85mm and will be teaching with this lens as well. I recommend bringing that or a 50mm with you.
  • Off Camera Flash or Mounted Flash. I will not be using one but if you wish to bring one, you are welcome to!
  • Questions! Bring any questions you may have! Even if they're not covered in the workshop, I'll answer them during Q+A.
  • The shooting part of our workshop will require a bit of walking through the woods to get to where we're going to photograph our model. You'll want to bring shoes that you'll feel comfortable walking in.

*Pens & Notepads will be provided to everyone, so don't worry about bringing these items.
