Taking Off Seminar | New York, NY

Back in October, we had the immense pleasure of participating in the Taking Off Seminar being put on by our good friends at Robert & Kathleen Photographers. It took place in the heart of New York City at the luxurious surroundings of The London NYC and an incredible list of vendors were involved with the event including the chic style and detailed planning of Jubilee Events, gorgeous dresses from The White Dress By The Shore, florals from Datura, A Modern Garden, makeup by Jennie Fresa, and cakes from Ana Parzych Custom Cakes. We have known Robert and Kathleen for a couple years now and have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated their work. They are exceptional photographers, genuine people, trusted mentors, and treasured friends. We are so grateful for the ways in which they have pushed, challenged, and inspired us to grow and enhance our business especially in the past year.

One component of the seminar was a stylized photo shoot designed to give us the opportunity to practice some of the techniques we were learning. In addition to shooting at The London, a majority of the shoot was conducted in and around the historic Hotel Chelsea. The whole experience was immensely fun and we were able to really think big about the direction of our business as we discussed both the art of photography and the challenges of managing and running a business.

We wanted to share some of the images from this seminar. We especially wanted to say thank you to Robert & Kathleen as well as all of the vendors and other photographers who participated. You all helped push us a little deeper into the excellence and art that we strive to achieve as a business and for that we are eternally grateful.
