WPPI Road Trip – Orlando

September 24, 2010

On Wednesday, I headed down to Orlando for the day to attend the WPPI Road Trip. WPPI stands for Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, and they host one of the largest photography conventions every year in Las Vegas. I’ve been a member of WPPI for a couple years, but last year was my first time going to Vegas for the convention. It’s several days of workshops, shoots, making new friends, and reviewing products and services from amazing vendors at the trade show. This year, the show happens to be during my birthday. Thanks, WPPI! : )

WPPI has brought a mini version of the Vegas convention to different cities throughout the US. Last year, I went to the road trip in Atlanta. This year, I was able to stay a little closer to home and head to Orlando. I saw a lot of other photographers that I knew or was “Facebook friends” with, which was great. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take any photos! And this time I even told myself that I needed to take photos, but after waking up at 5am and driving down to Orlando I think I was too tired to remember!

My favorite speakers were Rebecca Grinnals of Engaging Concepts and photographer Garrett Nudd. They were both informative and inspiring. Garrett Nudd had me teary-eyed as I was reminded of why I do what I do.

I’m looking forward to going to Vegas in the spring! Hope to see some of you there! : )
