This last weekend was such an amazing experience. I was chosen by Jasmine Star to attend her course on how to shoot an editorial wedding at CreativeLIVE. My hubby and I put together a submission video, where we rapped, and we actually got picked!!!!! I was shocked and amazed!!! I had all sorts of emotions running through me, excitment, nerves, and a hunger to learn. My hubs and I drove down to Seattle, just the two of us. Our moms graciously took our girls for the weekend so we were able to have some time without kids for a couple days. I have been watching CreativeLIVE for a while now so winning was exhilarating for me, it was exciting getting to meet all the crew and just being part of the action. The first day I was so nervous I could have thrown up, getting to know the other photographers, the crew, cameras, and just a whole new experience. We got together with Jasmine for breakfast and meeting her was great, her and JD were so nice and genuine. After some eats we headed to cL and got it started, I learned so much that first day… I can’t even re cap everything because my brain will explode and if you really want to know you can buy the full three days for $149…. steal of a deal by the way…. I just can’t even explain how incredible each and every day was, and the food they served at lunch was sooooo yummy! The crew eats well, Thai, and Greek food… YUM! Two of my fav dishes. Hosts Kenna and LaRae are two of the sweetest people, and I love the way they run the show… my favorite Kenna line…. “Hello internet!” Awesome! I know this is choppy, but I just can’t stop thinking of all these great moments. Overall an amazing experience. Now I have a few words to say to J*, J* Primes and cL……
