    Event Description:

    Attend a 2 day immersive wedding workshop with award-winning photographers and planners. This curated group of educators will lead you through some of the hardest parts of wedding day struggles to help you grow your portfolio, up level your posing skills, refine your flat lays, and then put those new skills to the test with a full day editorial styled shoot in Savannah Georgia. In addition to amazing education and styling, the Heartstrings Workshop and Styled Shoot is bringing together the wedding community at a national level to raise funds for SD Gunner Fund, a charity that is committed to veterans and exceptional children through the training and adoption of Service Dogs.

    Day 1 includes FIVE 40 minute workshop tutorials covering topics of lighting, posing, how to shoot for publication, flat lay styling, shooting tablescapes. Plus! During the one-hour lunch break, attendees will participate in a Q&A forum with some of the industry's best photographers about how to increase your profitability through Album sales.

    After the workshop enjoy a seated dinner & cocktails, during which you will meet SD Gunner Fund founder, Britnee Kinard. Learn about the incredible journey that inspired Britnee to start SDGF and hear from nationally credited entrepreneur and philanthropist expert, Jess Belfry on how to make philanthropy work for your for-profit business. After dinner, we have a surprise tour for all attendees that is sure to entertain AND give you a full view of the city.

    Day 2 allows you to put your new knowledge to work! Shoot your way through 5 wedding-styled stations and receive one-on-one guidance from your guests speakers. Stations will include ceremony, tablescapes, cocktail hour, details, bridal suite/get-ready room and even the opportunity to photograph service dogs (adorned in jewels and florals, of course!)
