11 years in the business & photographing wedding details is still my favorite part of the day! I will discuss the formula I use to style my couples’ details, the light I look for, which lenses I select, my favorite aperture, secret items I bring to help me while on location and tons more! If you are thinking of getting published, details are the first thing editors look at so step your game up with me in my tell all lecture!
I don’t know about you but something about soft, dreamy, joy filled images make my heart happy! Learn how I achieve the light and airy look in camera by simply adjusting your in camera settings and learning to use your available natural light in overcast or harsh sun environments.
I often get asked what the secret sauce is to having so many of my weddings published. If you yearn for images that are worthy of being recognized OR you just need to update your portfolio with tons of pretty, this class is for you! Come hang with me and let’s shoot pretty things in pretty places with pretty people and let me teach you how I capture images that stand out and get recognized and define my style!
Sharing my knowledge with other creatives brings me utter joy! I love blending my teaching experience with my journey in growing a thriving photography business, in order to help point people in the right professional path and build the brand of their dreams. I would be honored to speak at your upcoming event, conference, or workshop.

""Kiamarie's Smash the Flash class was excellent! She was informative, patient, and inspiring.""
""I had the honor of taking two classes with Kiamarie at Shutterfest, and those two classes alone were worth the entire trip to St. Louis""
