Retreat To Charleston With Bliss & Bokeh, A Wedding Photographer Workshop

Bliss & Bokeh is an intimate luxury retreat for female wedding photographers to be hosted Sunday through Wednesday, October 6-9, 2013, at Charleston Place Hotel in beautiful historic Charleston, South Carolina. This all-inclusive experience is designed to create a community of women who are passionate about wedding photography and the art of capturing bliss. Bliss & Bokeh is an opportunity to engage with some of the industry's best. Attendees will benefit from presentations and discussion with each of our ten amazing speakers in an intimate setting, time for one-on-one critiques, and the opportunity to learn and shoot alongside KT Merry and Leigh Webber with two beautiful and unique styled shoots designed by the talented Joy Thigpen and Lynn Easton Andrews at one of Charleston's oldest gems, Middleton Place. With a home that was originally built in 1755 surrounded by the oldest formal gardens in America, Middleton will provide a gorgeous backdrop and an amazing opportunity for attendees of Bliss & Bokeh to build their portfolios!

The women behind Bliss & Bokeh share a desire to see women empowered, inspired, and encouraged through their experience at Bliss & Bokeh. No doubt attendees will be incredibly grateful for all they learn from the speakers, and they'll swoon over their images from the styled plantation photo shoots; but what they'll treasure most, long after saying goodbyes and heading home, are the relationships, the women they'll call friends, and the encouragement they'll experience as they continue in this industry they love!

Visit the Bliss & Bokeh speaker page to learn more about each of our amazing speakers, a myriad of successful and talented wedding photographers, event planners, editors and branding experts, including: KT Merry, Tara Guerard, Joy Thigpen, Emily Newman, Becky Hoppman, Lynn Easton Andrews, Leigh Webber, Angela Marcaccio and Melissa Bigner. On the Bliss & Bokeh website and blog, you'll also find our itinerary, topics to be addressed, and an opportunity to register for this incredible event! Spots are limited, and registration will close on September 1st!

“While we love to talk about the glitz and glam of our accommodations, the charm of this beautiful city, and even the talent and success of our speakers, what truly fuels our enthusiasm is the collaboration of like-minded women, the community in the making.  It's the excitement of witnessing a group of wildly talented and creative women come together and engage in a meaningful way.” Betsy, Founder of Bliss & Bokeh

I feel the faster I can work, and the more intuitively I know my equipment, the more creative I can be. Wedding photography can make you a pro really fast. I think that artistic pressure is what drove me towards it.
