Nantucket Walk Through a Wedding Workshop

Last month we had the amazing opportunity to see a long time dream come true: we were able to go out and teach our Walk Through a Wedding workshop in one of our favorite places on the PLANET….Nantucket!! Over the years we have gotten to teach Walk Through in some really cool locations: The Netherlands, London, Sydney, and all over the US. But there was just something extra special about sharing a place that is so close to our hearts with our attendees that made this one extra incredible!

We started the three days with a welcome meet & greet at Cru, eating lobster rolls right on the water. And it just got better from there, including welcome bags with chocolate covered cranberries (a Nantucket specialty!), fireside chats at the Nantucket Inn, and a sunset shoot at Brant Point Lighthouse! We had the best group of attendees who came from all over the US & Canada, and they came with an open heart and a willingness to work hard & learn. It was SO awesome to mark this dream off our bucket list! And even better to come away with it with a bunch of new incredible friends!

And of course the whole thing could have never happened if it weren’t for a group of insanely talented creatives, led by the amazing Stacie Shea, who gave so generously of their time to come over to the island with us and put together the most preppy perfect shoot ever! It was truly a dream!

    $850 for the workshop seems like great value to get an overview of the wedding shoot process. Do you ever host workshops in Canada & how many attendees do you have at each event?

    Absolutely Beautiful! I love that color blue and the couple is gorgeous! I love the nautical theme. I’m looking into attending your next workshop.
