Dawn + Bob's Story
Bob and I hosted a wedding photography workshop called "Vegas Love Story" in Feb of 2008, where 40 photographers photographed a real wedding alongside Bob. Yes, you read that right.... 40 photographers! And yes, you are right again... we are absolutely crazy!
A sponsor of ours at the time hosted a contest for us where the winner would be given a free seat to our workshop. You had to dress in your favorite wedding attire, draw a red heart on your cheek and pose for a photo with a single stem flower. Well, our very own, Sarah Skow, won that contest! And as you can see from the photo on the right, she totally deserved to win! She looks amazing!!!!
When I reached out to congratulate Sarah, she was so sweet. She was going to Vegas by herself and was really nervous about attending our workshop. She was young and new to the wedding industry and was anxious about the whole experience. I reassured her that she would be great and that we were here for her every step of the way. Sure enough, she rocked the wedding workshop and got off of shooting in "automatic" mode. And since then her wedding photography business has boomed, she has more than quadrupled her business, her prices, and her passion for her art! Way to go Sarah!
Now this is where the story gets interesting... Sarah was photographing a wedding during the summer of 2009 and met a handsome guest who is now her husband, Dr. Brent DeShaw. This man fell head-over-heals in love with Sarah. When Sarah was planning their wedding, she reached out to us to see if we would be interested in making her wedding a workshop. She was very appreciative of her experience at our wedding workshop that she wanted to give other photographers the same opportunity. She knows how much photographers want to shoot a beautiful wedding for their portfolios. So, we happily agreed. In October 2009, Bob, along with 15 other photographers photographed the wedding of Sarah and Brent! Yes, this time only 15 photographers, we learned a lot from that Vegas Love Story workshop too!!!
God is so good and has brought so many wonderful photographers, clients and opportunities into our lives. There isn't a day that goes by that we are not thanking Him for all our blessings.
We hope you enjoy this site dedicated to Sarah and Brent...!
she didn't know how much winning a contest would change her life...
it was truly meant to be...
