Wedding Photography Workshop - Part 1

I had an amazing opportunity to photograph some beautiful brides this past Sunday at the Freestyle Wedding Workshop in Moline, IL. I learned a lot at this workshop and it gave me some great ideas and tips for next years couples!

The husband and wife couples that were our models were all married within the past year. It was neat to see these couples revisiting their wedding day and having a chance to enjoy themselves (and each other) without the pressure of having to say their vows within a few hours!

The brides and grooms where so nice and we had a lot of fun trying "out of the box" poses - make sure to check out the ones below in the water fountain!
