The BODA FOTO Workshop is coming up!

On December 6th, I am joining forces with the uber talented Jennifer Lindberg to teach a workshop for photographers that are just getting into the wedding business.  We understand how overwhelming it can be to shoot your first wedding (or actually get paid for shooting your first wedding).  During this workshop we’ll cover pretty much anything you feel like you need to know as well as many many things you didn’t even KNOW you needed to know.  We’ll also be having portfolio reviews.  Don’t be shy!  Just bring us whatever you have.  It’s going to be a fun day and I guarantee you’ll walk away from it with lots of knowledge that will boost your confidence.  Also, after the workshop we won’t forget about you.  We will be checking in with all of you to see how it’s going.  We still have a few seats left so visit the BODA FOTO website and sign up today!  Keep in mind that this isn’t a shooting workshop so leave your cameras at home but bring your laptops.

We will be announcing our shooting workshops in the future.  So stay tuned for that!

TGIF, y’all,

Sweet Wedding (and an Ashley update)

Hello there,

I apologize for the few and far between blog posts.  I’ve had a really heavy travel schedule lately which has ultimately led to my getting the flu.  Ugh.  So, I’m obviously behind on posting.  Many apologies!  Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up in the next week.

Today I’m bringing you one of my favorite weddings of 2009.  It was a second marriage for both the bride and groom with only 16 guests in attendance, many of whom were their children.  The ceremony was followed by a dinner with the loveliest abundance of flowers on the dining table.  Although we were only the for a couple of hours, the love  and excitement between the bride and groom and the combined families was contagious.  We left with big smiles on our faces that evening.  Congratulations, Lorrie and Ken!

I’m off to nap now. Probably for the rest of the day.



A workshop for new & emerging wedding photographers – December 6th!

I’m excited to announce that Ashley Garmon Photographers has partnered with Jennifer Lindberg Weddings to teach a series of workshops. The first one is being held at The Four Seasons in Austin, Texas, and is for emerging wedding photographers who are either on the verge of starting their business in wedding photography or have been in business for two years, or less.
Are you passionate about wedding photography but you still have a part-time or full-time job? We’ve been there. Are you searching for that confidence to take the leap into starting or growing your own business? Well, this workshop is for you. Have you been struggling for your first year or two in your wedding photography business? Again, this workshop is for you. We know what it’s like to start wedding photography businesses from scratch, so we’re here to help!

We’ll be discussing in depth:
Having powerfully effective client meetings
Designing work flow, post production
Marketing Tips
Social Media Networking
Keeping your business afloat
Having and keeping happy clients

Recognizing your strengths and weaknesses
Portfolio Reviews (don’t worry if you don’t have albums or an official portfolio, we would like to see what you’ve been working on)

And much more!
