Lake Superior Wedding Workshop Series 2

What in the world went on in the Explore North Workshop this spring?  I’m telling you, this workshop that April, Jen, and Shaunae organized was a life changing experience! This blog covers the wedding portion of the workshop.  Kudos to our models Brock and Katrina. What courage and charm they had to have.  I mean 20 photographers snapping away in the wind off lake superior for goodness sakes!  Other than being a bit cold (we were up north – WAY up north) these two enjoyed a day of looking good and snuggling!

We snapped away, discussed amazing discoveries (like live view 🙂 ) and made life long friends.  We danced A LOT! Thanks April for the soundtrack.  After we had learned and talked, we built a campfire danced to wedding songs and when we least expected it….THE NORTHERN LIGHTS APPEARED!  To see a mass of photographers running to grab tripods, cameras, and set up in the dark was funny and exhilarating all at once!  Thank-you to all who I met, cheered me on, and thanks to the spirit of the north woods.

The  Lake Superior Barn had the perfect spot for this dress.  I even hauled up some rocks and driftwood (which now resides in my garden), see lower left on the right image.
