Fresh Thinking: Wondershop Series Workshop & Styled Shoot
Last month, we had the pleasure of participating in the first Wondershop Series, a collection of curated classes and workshops for local wedding professionals. Jessie Evans of Jessie Alexis Photography and Lizy Bowden of Lizy’s Lilies, the duo behind the Wondershop Series, invited us to speak about magazines and the “secrets of submitting” photos to print publications. We had a wonderful time sharing the stage with co-speaker Lindsey Orton of Lindsey Orton Photography and Utah Bride Blog, and meeting so many new vendors.

Following the presentation, Wondershop attendees moved on to the workshop portion of the day: a styled shoot at the SLC Photo Collective featuring spring florals, vintage furniture and props, and a perky blush, yellow, and orange palette set against the SLC Photo Collective’s white and brick walls. The results? Take a looksie at these gorgeous images from the shoot by Jessie Alexis Photography. We love the bride’s lace dress and cheerful poppy bouquet, and the groom’s smart gray suit.
How great are the final four shots of the bride, Kamra Christensen, pictured above? Oh happy day!
Check out the Wondershop Series website for more information about upcoming classes and workshops.
Many thanks to Jessie and Lizy for asking us to join in on the fun!
