Partnering up with friends in Chicago

Whew. I am glad to be home... for the time being. I have never had so many problems with delays and mechanical issues with planes than my trip to and from Chicago this past week. But despite the travel frustrations, my time at Pictage's Partnercon in Chicago was well worth the trip. Partnercon was a great get together of meeting a lot of my favorite photographer inspirations, seeing old friends, making new friends, checking out awesome product vendors and soaking in a ton of knowledge learning from top photographers in the wedding industry. I didn't realize until last minute that even the photographer, Robert Evans, who shot Tom and Katie's wedding, was a few rows in front of me at the closing session. Yes, as in THE TomCat's wedding in Italy.

Below are some fun pics with my fabulous photographer friends! Enjoy! And be sure to check out their awesome websites below!

And here's a fun one Carole Foret snapped of me getting some tips from Fred Egan.



Also before I left for the airport, I was able to squeeze in a quick visit with my best friend from high school, Chrissy, who now lives in Chicago. I originally was supposed to shoot her engagement session with her new fiance Eric, but due to plane delays and not getting until a day late, they have rescheduled to come instead to Florida to get some pictures done on the beach here in her hometown.

It's been a while since I have had any time to catch up on my blog surfing. I'm so glad you got to go to the conference in chi-town. Looks like you all had a blast,and I am sure you learned a lot from each other as well.

Fred- Ditto!! You are awesome! I'll keep you posted about the seniors!

Jill- We missed you! Fred had some great ideas for how to market to the seniors. He used to work at Abercrombie and Fitch so he's super in tuned with what seniors love and appeal to. Don't hesitate to email him to get the scoop. p.s. Thanks for the compliment!

Jen- Thanks girl! I don't know how, I was so exhausted. But yeah, definitely attend a workshop or get together if you can. It's awesome to meet others in the industry and learn and share knowledge.

Crystal- Thanks! Hopefully you can join a get together in the near future too.

DJ- Yeah, Timco. Gotta love him!

Katie- Roomie, I miss you! It so fabulous meeting and hanging with you! I hope to see you again soon!
p.s. I'll definitely be keeping the pink. :-)
