WPPI… First time~ and first time to Las Vegas!
WPPI is wedding portrait photographers international. Its an association that puts on a huge convention every year that includes print competitions, trade show, and classes in every facet of photography from all the current rock stars in the industry.
It was a super special time for me. I got to spend 5 days in Vegas with 3 of the coolest photographers I know. Monica Dawn, Kelly Gretsinger and Stephanie Jean Briggs.
Can I say how “Super Walmart” is key to a 5 day run in vegas. I think we spent about $300 there between the 4 of us but it covered all the booze and food and fixin’s we needed for our apartment-like hotel room.
…and, oh, did I mention I got to go to Creative Live and meet Sue Bryce, Kenna and Susan and all the peeps that run that fantastic website. It was pretty amazing.
Coolest person I met in Vegas was definitely Susan Roderick! She is a kick ass party ball!
Funniest moment was probably Monica in her “where’s waldo” get-up showing up to a formal dressed event. Comedy. You can catch those pix on my FB.
Pretty amazing having that bond with those girls…and Kelly- he’s fabulous. Talk about loyal. He is an amazing friend. He wasn’t about to let anything happen to us girls. Love him! Cant believe we weren’t friends long time ago.
Biggest “Take Away” for me personally as an artist is that I have to only focus on what I love… Believe in what I do…and I don’t need everyone to like what I do-I only need a hand full of people to love it! I believe in what I do and I certainly believe Im worth it~
Cant wait to do it again next year.
