{Personal} WPPI 2012

March 13, 2012

This post just makes me SMILE :)

For those of you sitting there saying, “What’s this WPPI thing?”…. Let me fill you in! WPPI stands for Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. Every year, they host a week-long convention and tradeshow in Vegas. This is an AMAZING opportunity for photographers to network with thousands of other photogs, learn the industry at mini platform classes, attend some cool parties, and check out the latest products at the tradeshow!

 If you are a wedding or portrait photographer, you NEED to be going to this! It is one of the most amazing experiences!

This year was my second year and I was there for 5 days with my awesome roommates, Ty LaMothe, Shannon Morse, Krystal Michelle, and Faith Teasley. We made some memories I will NEVER forget. But I think the only way to recap the fun…would be by photos….so here we go!

{Oh how I am already SO excited for WPPI 2013!}


When we first got to the room, we were REALLY excited about the huge bathtub.The view from our balcony.When we missed our classes…we always found other fun things to do ;)I met so many amazing people!!! Networking really is such a huge part of this convention!The 3 Kristens/Kristins :)One afternoon, while we were hanging out in the room. Something inspired Krystal, Ty, and I to do a spoof editorial shoot on the balcony. Ty and I were the models. We ran around the room asking the questions “Hmmmm what do we have in here that we can use to make ourselves look weird with?!” {Cause that’s how Lady Gaga gets dressed, right?}Shannon and I attended some awesome parties! TOO. MUCH. FUN.On the last day…we went ALL OUT and took a million photos. I think the next one demonstrates the obvious….you have to have some degree of weirdness if you hope to room with us…..The stunning Miss Shannon.Gorgeous Miss Faith!Things were somewhat normal for awhile….then they started to get weird…..I have no comment for the next few sets of photos.And I will close with the EPIC camera battle between Shannon and I :D
