PartnerCon 2009 Reflections: Part III – Uh, models, wha??

Partner Con 2009 was amazing and there were so many different components that came together to make it a rockin’ weekend!

Something great about PartnerCon is that there are not only speaking sessions but there are actually workshops!  They filled up so fast this year that they added even MORE workshops and our friends Jeff & Erin Youngren from San Diego, CA stepped up and met the need.  Their workshop filled up in like 30 seconds and a little bit later we got an email from them asking if we would um, be their subjects – wedding attire and all!!!!!  We agreed and were even more pumped about it because we don’t have that many modern shots of us in wedding gear!  So we were excited about getting some nice shots of us as bride and groom… four years later…

Here are a few that have surfaced so far!

(Ok so after we created this post tons more images popped up, and as I, Jody, type I’m in MN sitting at a dial up computer – who would of thought people still have dial up? – and we have some more KICK BOOTY images to show, but alas, the connection is taking forever for us to put more up… To see more images that the workshop leaders themselves took you’ll have to mosey on over to their Blog!!!)

dress shots

The above images were taken by Amy Lashelle who not only was one of the photographers in the workshop but it is her wedding dress that I am wearing!  Thank-you Amy for letting me wear your dress and not minding the NOLA that came with it when I gave it back to you!

Ah, so fun!  Thanks to all who shot us at the Youngren’s workshop,

We also were asked last minute by the talented Mike Larson to be his subjects for a workshop he was holding.  It was funny because while we were shooting a lady ask Zach if he was David Cook from American Idol!  Lol. When more images surface from this shoot we’ll make sure to share :)


We have to admit, it was a little weird at first to be on the other side of the camera!  However it was perfect because Mike & the Youngren’s workshops were all about how to put your client at ease as you shoot them (with your camera) and we learned a lot just by watching and listening and being on the other side of the camera!!

Thanks Mike and Jeff & Erin for taking time out and sharing your knowledge with others!
