Wedding Production Workshop Goes Virtual and Donates All Summer Proceeds

Rebecca Rose Events, headed by Becca Atchison and Betsy Krug, has made some changes to its upcoming workshops. If you are not familiar, Rebecca Rose Events hosts a series of workshops and "Intensives" through its RRE Method brand.

During the Artful Wedding Production Workshop, Atchinson and Krug share their entire process and many lessons they have learned over years of designing high-end weddings.

Hustle and Flow Workshop Disbands Amongst Controversy

Within a day of issuing their apology The Hons deleted their apology and also took down their Instagram accounts.

Talking Diversity in the Wedding Industry with Fallon Carter

Like many of you, I listened in to the Zoom call with Engage Summits that was held a few days ago. The intentions for the call were wonderful, and the 15-member panel provided phenomenal insight. I did, however, leave the call wishing there had been more time for the conversation to evolve, so I began reaching out to some of our friends in the industry. This call with wedding planner Fallon Carter, is the first of those conversations.

Ohio Opening for 300-Person Weddings

As reported on, Ohio is open for business and may be the go to spot if you are looking to host a large-scale event in the near future. But don't let the headlines fool you, this isn't a free for all. Ohio has specific restrictions in place as it plans to allow weddings to match the same capacity numbers it has also set for restaurants. Having wedding restrictions that pair with the state’s restaurant and bar guidelines means no dancing and mingling between tables.

Meet the Ritual Collective

This month, the Ritual Collective announced itself to the wedding world. In the midst of a global pandemic when weddings are nowhere in sight comes a collective of wedding photographers with a singular vision. The number one question: why now?

There is some sense of responsibility the founding members of the collective share: to document history in a way that is genuine.

Metering 101 with Richard Photo Lab

Spot meter, incident meter, external meter, metering modes, bulb-in, bulb-out...? Whoah. I've probably seen dozens of tutorials and articles on how to meter, and the variations on technique can be confounding for new photographers both digital and film. Here's the thing: metering is essential. Whether you are a digital photography who spends their day in studio metering for strobes or a natural light photographer running around in a million different scenarios on wedding days, you need to get it right. And yes, film has latitude (some more than others), but if you've shot enough film you know the vast difference between a properly and improperly metered image.

These Are the Best Flatlay Backdrops

Over the past few years, the flatlay has become part of the zeitgeist of wedding imagery. Couples and vendors love beautifully styled elements from a client's big day that remind them of all of the details and bring together their design story. Clients spend hours and hours selecting the perfect invitation suites that introduce their guests to the events to come, and many of those clients want to have a memory of those beautiful paper pieces. As time has gone on, photographers and designers have looked for resources and materials to create these stunning flatlay images. Here is a list of some of our favorite backdrop resources.
