Intimate Styled Wedding in the Berkshires

At the end of March, I was given the opportunity to participate in a whirlwind weekend of photography, networking, and, of course...

Coffee, coffee, coffee!

This retreat in the Berkshires of Lee, Massachusetts, was organized by the amazing Hilary Colleen of Hilary Colleen Photography, with the help of Jenn Bakos of Jenn Bakos Photography and Rachel McPherson of RaeEllen Photography.

From the romantic styled wedding shoot to the tasty food photography class to a wealth of marketing techniques presented by none other than Rachel McPherson, this weekend was one I will never forget. I learned so much and was inspired in ways I could not have imagined.

To begin, here are some images from the setup and background happenings. For a full list of vendors, scroll to the bottom. We had some amazing people collaborate during this fabulous weekend!
