Romantic Summer Wedding at The Sutherland | Wake Forest, NC Photographer | AJDP Workshop Styled Shoot

Summer Romance at The Sutherland

Wake Forest, NC

AJDP Workshop Styled Wedding

I had the opportunity to spend a weekend in Wake Forest learning from one of the prominent wedding photographers in the area, AJ Dunlap. AJ + Kyle welcomed us girls into their home where they fed us tacos, we talked shop, learned allll the things, and then she treated us to an amazing styled shoot at The Sutherland. Which if you haven’t had the chance to see in person is STUNNING! Seriously stop venue shopping, book them + then immediately book me and I will love you forever.

Ok back on track. So I always love being a part of styled shoots because you get to learn and grow in a low stakes environment. That way when you show up for your clients’ weddings you’ve got all sorts of new skills that are now tried and true to surprise them with. For me workshops + styled shoots are a fantastic way to evolve so I can continue to give our couples a great experience and awesome images they’ll love for years to come.

It was a long weekend of learning, sharing, and growing that was absolutely exhausting but so worth it. Here’s a little peek at the gorgeousness AJ put together for us with her talented team of vendors.
