On October 14, 2009 (Wednesday), some of industry’s leading photographers came to host the first Portfolio Plus Workshop. It covered a variety of topics for operating a wedding photography business.
- Ray Santana – workflow and presentation
- Kenny Kim – business inspiration
- Kenny Nakai – Chicago helping hands
- Becker – passion, profit and community
- Lawrence (ME) – strategic online marketing
IF YOU ARE A BRIDE, I still encourage you to peruse and check out some of my wedding pictures taken at Biltmore Hotel despite this being a post on a workshop – contact me!
After covering topics on business and marketing, 3 real brides were invited to come to be models. We had the opportunity to photographs all throughout Biltmore Hotel and the chapel across the street.

This awesome image was taken at the penthouse suite at Bilmore Hotel where Al Capone used to reside. It was also used for the movie Bad Boys I in the opening scene. Isn’t she gorgeous?
What an infectious laugh! I love her positive energy!
There was a 3rd bride, but I did not get a chance to photograph her because I was trying to conserve energy for my presentation that followed the photo shoot. Plus, I just hosted my own workshop the day before!
Here’s me teaching (image courtesy of Kenny Nakai):

P.S. After visiting the Al Capone suite at Biltmore Hotel, my Ritz Carlton suite looked plain.
P.P.S. Did I win, Ray? Hehe
