I’m constantly asked about workshops to learn photography from all levels of our readers. I realize it’s not a one-size fits all kind of task. It’s only taken me about 8 years, but I’ve finally started a store for Kristen Weaver Photography events! I’ve added 4 courses for all levels of photographers and hobbyists to share some of the knowledge we have! I’m most excited about our new series called Shoot POP’UP – where we will randomly open beautiful styled shoots for other photographers to attend and photograph alongside the KWP team! This gives us the opportunity to work hands-on with everyone and share our knowledge for gorgeous detail photographs and beautiful bridal portraits!
