Bespoke Workshop: Chic & Modern Editorial at Chicago History Museum

I’m sooo excited to recap Bespoke 2.0 for you all today! Lindsey and I shared the greatest honor of hosting 16 sweet, driven + talented photographers at our second workshop, this time at the Chicago History Museum! It was a jam-packed day of education centered around building successful wedding photography businesses, followed by a beautiful styled shoot and of course meaningful networking.

To be honest, Lindsey and I didn’t know how we could possibly top our first workshop, but I’m not exaggerating when I say we nearly choked up walking into Chicago History Museum and seeing everything come to life! Our vision was classic, clean + airy, with lots of luxurious details and textures. (I think our vendors knocked it out of the park… scroll on to see what I mean!) HUGE thank you to the models and creative team of professionals who collaborated to give our attendees an outstanding styled shoot to photograph for their portfolios. Most of all, thank you to Danielle of Ohana Events, our fabulous planner who somehow took all of me and Lindsey’s jumbled thoughts and turned it into the workshop of our dreams!

We’ve had so many people asking us when the next Bespoke Workshop would be announced, and we’re excited to say that details will be shared very soon! Stay tuned over on our website and Instagram so you don’t miss it!
