WPPI 2013 | Day 1

March 9, 2013

Hey lovelies!

I’m writing you from fabulous Las Vegas at the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Convention and Expo! I’ll be blogging daily from here so you can see what WPPI is all about!

This is my second time attending WPPI, and I’ve definitely learned a lot since the first time. I have a full schedule, but I don’t think I’m overdoing it – one class each day with some shootouts and networking events mixed in. But my favorite part of WPPI is the expo, where you get to see all the exciting new products from different vendors! I can’t wait to see some of our favorite GTP vendors, including MidWest Photographic who hooked us up with a free pass to the convention!! You guys ROCK!!!

I felt like California did NOT want me to leave! As soon as I left my house, hail started to pelt my car! Then I drove through a bunch of rain, and a couple times there were snow flurries!

But I finally got here, and checked in to our room at the MGM Signature. It’s such a nice, quiet retreat from the craziness of Vegas, and the staff are super friendly! Here are some iPhone pics of our suite:

After getting settled in I headed over to the Monte Carlo to meet with wedding stylist and coordinator Samantha Jackson from Pensacola, FL. What a great way to kick off WPPI!

Here are a couple pics of Vegas. One is the NYNY hotel and the second one is the view from our room at the Signature! Hopefully the rest of my posts will be with photos from my camera and not my iPhone, but I couldn’t do a blog post without pics!! : )
