Stylized Shoot

Summer's End Workshop with Lieb Photographic | Part II by Inés Zrinski

The first night of the workshop ended at the elegant Rixey Manor, a wedding venue unique as it is charming with its 200+ year history, grand staircase, and cosy atmosphere (I'm also sure there's a ghost milling about somewhere in there). Oh, AND it perches on a hilltop with distant views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. What more could we ask for?… A bar. Yes. There is a bar, fashioned by Ben from wood of a magnificent tree that once was on the property. Perfection! 

Once we arrived, we changed into our PJs and sipped wine late into the night while picking Michelle’s brain for her extensive knowledge of photography. The woman is amazingly generous with her knowledge. 

Our next day was peppered with informative talks ranging from empowering us to run our businesses better to helping us provide our clients with exclusive experiences that reflect our individuality.

Summer's End Workshop with Lieb Photographic | Part I by Inés Zrinski

I had the awesome pleasure of taking part in a two day photography workshop this summer in Culpeper, Virginia, with superbly talented Michelle Lieb of Lieb Photographic and a myriad of other wedding professionals.

On our first evening, we were presented with a beautifully dreamy stylized shoot for us to practice our craft in difficult lighting conditions, a common problem at wedding receptions, and Michelle was there to provide helpful feedback to help guide us. Here are some of my favorites.
