Photography Workshop with Anouschka Rokebrand

March 10th, 2014

Hi guys! My goodness it’s been an age since I was here last. Things are just extremely busy on my end, with the wedding in just 8 weeks, the renovations an ongoing happening in our home and we have both been really busy with work. All positive things of course, but all at once, one doesn’t quite know where to begin each day! But I’ve been working on a fun project lately, which I thought you might like to see. I was asked by the wedding photographer Anouschka Rokebrand {who I often work with styling and shooting editorial shoots for Style Me Pretty and who will be photographing my own wedding soon} to style her upcoming photography workshop, taking place on 8 April. For any aspiring wedding photographers out there, particularly those that live in the Netherlands, she will be giving an in depth look into her work as a successful wedding photographer with tips on how to get started in the industry, how to find and develop your own style, the kind of equipment needed as well as tips for networking and marketing. Anouschka has a very defined style and brand aesthetic, so when she asked me to style her workshop (which will be photographed by its attendees) I wanted to make sure that I pin-pointed her look to perfection from the get go. As a starting point, I put together a couple of moodboards.

On the day, I’ll primarily be putting together a styled bridal table for the photographers to shoot. Anouschka’s style is feminine, fresh with a touch of glam, so I chose a colour palette of blush pink, creams, deep berry tones and a hint of brassy gold.

For this workshop, she has teamed up with several fantastic vendors, many of which will be providing the pretties that I’ll be working with on the day. Lucky Penny Paperie have sent over the most gorgeous stationary, Helene Millot Furnishings will be providing the tableware {was I in heaven sorting through her collections and choosing the products we’ll be using for the workshops last week!}, Don Florito florists will be taking care of the florals for the day and Sugarlips Cakes are providing a cake for our budding photographers to zoom in on. All these elements will be making their way onto the styled table setting.

I want the overall look to be glam without being over the top, so would love to see loosely arranged, whimsical florals and natural elements to keep the look casually elegant. With soft blush and cream tones as the base palette, I thought some deep blackberry tones would kick the look up a notch, while elements of gold will infuse that glam look that I know Anouschka loves.

I’m excited to see it all come together on 8 April, and will be sure to share the results here shortly afterwards. I’ll be a busy bee on the day as I have also been invited to be a guest speaker, talking to attendees about working with a stylist and what a stylist looks for in a photographer. Eek!

If you’d like to know more about the workshop, click here. It will be held in Dutch {ahem, apart from my part!} but if you are interested in attending and don’t speak Dutch, be sure to contact Anouschka as I just know she will make sure that you’ll be well taken care of!

Well folks, I hope that was an inspiring start to your week. Wishing you a wonderful day, and see you back here soon!
