Fine Art Summer Workshop by Joy Wed
And one day she discovered that she was fierce,
and strong and full of fire,
and that not even she could hold herself back
because her passion burned brighter then her fears
— Mark Anthony

Today's feature is an in-depth look into our recent Fine Art Summer workshop hosted in Banff, Alberta, Canada. Inspired by summer and our love for not only educating but giving our attendees something to capture that will help them build their portfolios, this workshop came to life with the help of an incredibly talented team. The day became a day that was full of laughter, learning and building relationships that we will all treasure for years to come. Thank you to each and every vendor and attendee that took part in this special day. It was amazing because of you!

From designer Stacey Foley of JoyFoley Weddings: "Summer. That time of year when the sun shines perfectly, the fruit is at it's sweetest and the days are long and warm. Inspired by the soft colors of a sunset and the sky before a refreshing rainfall this editorial was created with a peach and grey color palette.  

The beautiful dress was custom made for us by designer Caroline Kohler of Sweet Caroline. The grey skirt to mimic the color of the sky when rain clouds first blow in and cool down the day. Perfectly accessorized with the Phelan comb from Naturae Design this look was completed with exquisite hair and makeup by Blush & COCO. 

Our tablescape was inspired by the colors, smells and tastes of summer. My visions were perfectly brought to life with florals from Fern & Frond, stationery by Art & Alexander and beautiful rentals from Gathered Table Supply, Special Event Rentals and Party Crush Studio. 

Everything was captured and brought to life on the other of the lens by our talented Lead Photographer and Instructor, David Heidrich of Heidrich Photography. David's ability to capture emotion and beauty is both graceful and timeless."
