This may be one of several blog posts today as I frantically catch up before my trip down to West Palm Beach this weekend.

One of the things that I’ve always loved about the photography community is everyone’s willingness to share their knowledge! I know we’re all competitors, but some of my biggest competitors are also some of my coolest friends! We have lunch over new ideas, new equipment, gossip (just a little!) and what the future holds. It’s really exciting to grow along side all of these talented people, and I always hoped that one day I could grow enough that people would allow me to share what I know with them! I believe in paying it forward, and it’s through the graciousness of others that I learned my craft. So I’d like to pass that along!

So with countless emails pouring in to ask about what I do, how I do it and why I enjoy it so much (that’s the easy one!), I decided it was time to start hosting a few workshops! I had my first workshop a couple weekends ago with Percy and Carla from DeArmero Photography here in Orlando – and not only did we have a really fun time tromping through Celebration, but they got some amazing shots from our models, real couple Lauren and Jason!

Want to set up your own workshop? I’m offering a discounted rate for one-on-one weekday workshops in December! Email me for details!

You can check out their stunning work of Lauren and Jason on their Facebook Page (click the picture below). Also, be sure to check out their website!

I wanted to share their thoughts, and some great images I got of them hard at work!

“Ever since I heard about Kristen Weaver, I knew that she was not only an extraordinary photographer but also an amazing human being …and I wasn’t wrong!
When Percy told me Kristen was going to do a workshop I didn’t hesitate and i said ‘Let’s go! I have to meet this talented woman’.
Kristen, we had so much fun shooting with you, thanks for being able to answer all our questions, and share your knowledge with us…you’re an inspiration!”

“I love Kristen’s style! At her workshop, I learned how to make the couples pose  many new and different ways. We had so much fun!
Her creativity inspired me. She was able to respond every question I had… it was totally worth it!
Thank you, Kristen!! You are such an amazing person and photographer!”
