Let’s Meet in Person! Vegas or Tennessee?!

Me Ra Koh

Brian and I are coming to Vegas and Tennessee in February, and we would LOVE to meet you!

First stop is  WPPI 2012, February 16th-23rd in Vegas!

Wishing you could have a reunion with your CONFIDENCE sisters?  Why not WPPI!  Take it from the San Diego CONFIDENCE Workshop!  These ladies have kept up this reunion for three years now!

WPPI is the largest Wedding and Portrait Photography Conference!  Thousands of photographers come from all over the world, but don’t fret.  The attendees range from beginner to old pro.  The speaking sessions are awesome, down to earth, and cover EVERY THING you could think of from lighting, posing, social media, running a business, etc.  Every product, vendor, I mean…any photography related THING, is at the tradeshow–and often vendors save their BIGGEST discounts to offer to WPPI attendees.  So if you are thinking of upgrading your camera equipment, save your dollars and do it at WPPI!  This is an amazing conference!  It’s one of our Grand Prize awards in the Nielsen Photo contests!  In fact, I’m super excited for Leah, the Grand Prize winner of the New Beginnings Contest to go!  She gets full registration to WPPI as one of her prizes!

Remember the talk I gave at Photo Plus in NY called “Using Social Media Strategically:  What Works vs What is Noise”?  I know a lot of you were unable to attend Photo Plus but wanted to hear the talk!  You are in luck!!  The audience feedback was so great in NY, WPPI is letting me bring the talk to Vegas!

Mark your calendars.  My session will be on Wed, February 22nd, from 8-10am!  I will also be doing several shooting demonstrations at the SONY booth on the tradeshow floor.

So you better say hi!  🙂  Register for WPPI and save your spot for my talk online today!

From Vegas, we fly to Tennessee for  Blissdom 2012!

Calling all women who love blogging, taking pictures, writing and dream of running your own business (or currently have a business)!  Blissdom brings 750 women together for a two day conference that will blow your socks off and infuse you with inspiration and friendship!  I’ll be teaching all day on Friday for those interested in photography!  My talk is titled “Shoot Like a Woman”!  And I can’t wait to meet you there!  This is my first time going to Tennessee, so EXCITED!

Blissdom is held at the  Opryland Hotel.  From what I hear, this place is a great family vacation spot too!

But first, before our CONFIDENCE Workshop in Seattle and Florida, before WPPI in Vegas, before Blissdom in Tennessee, we head to Costa Rica this week to shoot a very, very special wedding!  (Bring me sunshine!)

So where am I going to see you this new year?  Seattle, Florida, Vegas, Tennessee or California?  …Costa Rica? 🙂

    A visit in Nashville could probably be arranged. 🙂 My parents live ten minutes from the Opryland hotel. Would love to catch up with you!

    Hoping to see you in Vegas! Getting last minute room arrangements. Heading to my church Women’s retreat this weekend. Last year this weekend I was getting ready for Confidence and still on the mend from walking pneumonia. What a difference a year makes – going into a New Year with a lot of clarity – literally! ha-ha!

    Oh, MeRa, PLEASE come to Pittsburg, PA! I’m terrified to fly and it’s probably the closest city you would be willing to come to. Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top! (Hey, it worked when I was a kid!) 🙂

    I just returned from a visit to Nashville to see my Dad and just to play!! I was actually born there, too. You will love Nashville….everyone I know who goes there wants to move there. I recommend breakfast at the Pancake Pantry (unbelievably divine!!), a drive by the Parthenon, a visit to the Hermitage and staying at the Opryland Hotel!! So you are already doing one of the funnest things! Have a blast!! 🙂

    I really appreciate ALL the different cities you are throwing out for CONFIDENCE to visit! We are going to figure out our Spring cities soon, so keep an eye out for the voting poll. We love to hear from you on where we should bring CONFIDENCE next. xoxo, m

    Hi Michelle Bernal Grady! I’ll be in NYC in October for sure to speak at Photo Plus Expo and SONY’s booth. We may do a CONFIDENCE Wkshp there too, but not sure on that yet.
