The Essentials Workshop | Featured on Cake and Lace Blog

The Essentials Workshop was a two-day photography workshop taught by local photographers Michelle ChiuJennifer Fujikawa and Michelle Nicole. The Essentials Workshop is for photographers who are just starting out in the wedding photography business and who want to learn fundamental skills for shooting and running a business. We had the pleasure of feeding everyone that attended and food styling for the photo shoots.
