the welcome home workshop... ROAD TRIP!!


I was blown away by the first Welcome Home Workshop.  It was a huge decision to put one together and I only wanted to do it if I knew I could deliver.  I wanted everyone that signed up to get so much out of it.. fresh ideas and practical tools on how to move forward with their business, some realisations, some new friends but most of all.. to go away feeling inspired, that feeling that they're on the right track and that they can achieve anything.

The workshop surpassed each and every one of my expectations.  Such an amazing group of people, such an amazing day.  I realised how much I really do love to share what we do, to be around other artists that feel those butterflies everyday, to talk shop openly without judgement and to feel fully supported..

So, we began getting enquiries about doing another workshop.. I knew I wanted to do another one at some point but when peeps from different parts of the country expressed an interest I did what I always do and go for the 'batshit crazy' version..

So.. we're doing THREE workshops... in THREE cities.. in ONE WEEK!!!!!!

Told ya.. batshit..

We're hiring a van.. kidnapping Shutterbox Films and heading to Edinburgh, Bristol and finally stopping in London!

Places are limited to 10 peeps per workshop and after each day we'd love it if you could join us for dinner and drinks in each city.. :)

Cost: £400 incl lunch
To find out more about the workshop and to book your place just head to the website.. I CAN"T WAIT!!!


You can read more about the workshop and what's involved on the website.. http://www.thewelcomehomeworkshop.com/ and you can read all about the first workshop, including some lovely blog posts from the first group of homies here.. http://emmacasephotography.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/welcome-home-workshop.html

It would be an absolute bloomin' pleasure to see you there!!

Kapow!


* A few people have expressed an interest in doing the workshop but are unsure if it's suitable due to them either not being a photographer or feeling that they aren't at a certain level.  This workshop looks at lots of different elements of running a creative business and although I will say that it is predominantly geared towards photographers, we did have a non-photographer attend the first workshop.  If you have any questions or want to chat to me about it then feel free to email us at info@emmacasephotography.com



Ohhhh look a GIVEAWAY!!..

For the last workshop we had the most generous sponsors who provided amazing goodies for all the 'Welcome Homies' (you can thank Hannah Millard for the wonderful 'Homies' name).. and this time round I'm so excited to have the wonderful Moo.com provide a set of 100 MOO Standard Business Cards for three lucky peeps to celebrate the launch of the crazy Workshop road trip!
If you're not aware of MOO, they love to print Business Cards, MiniCards, Postcards and even the cutest little sticker books.. :)  You can choose from a range of business card templates and designs for your cards and personalise them with your own details, or upload your own images or artwork to create truly unique cards!

How to enter..
All you have to do is post a comment below and tell us what you think of when you think of the word HOME..  Three winners will be chosen from the comments below and please make sure you leave a valid email address so I can contact you!

Good luck!!

the weaver women..

There are literally not enough words to explain how much I love these ladies. Kelty and Hannah are the two most genuine, wonderful, supportive and crazy talented people I know. I contacted Kelty about two years ago about designing my website and the journey to what I have today has been incredible. We have become firm friends over hundreds of emails and the day I get to meet this pair in the flesh, I know I'm going to squeeze them both so hard.  There is a part of The Weaver Women with me every day and a photo of them hangs proudly next to my desk at work to make sure that one day we book that flight to go visit.

So today I want to shout from the rooftops. You might know Kelty from the wonderful Steep Street, but now Kelty and her sister Hannah have joined creative forces and re-launched their design and photography work as The Weaver House. Oh and to top it off they've added an online vintage and handmade shop to their list of amazingness.. honestly, this duo are going to make me skint.. I want to buy everything!!

I love them dearly... and I just know you lot are going to love them too... their brand spanking new website has launched today and I actually want to live in it.. go take a peek..


Here's just a little glimpse of what you'll find..





*swoon*

So, so, so proud of you ladies....

sarah and will...

Sarah and Will got married in glorious sunshiny, Jenny Packham gorgeousness.. I adored Sarah's dress from Miss Bush Bridal and I also fell in love with the Bridesmaids' Anthropolgie dresses! The boys looked dapper in their cool suits, bow ties and braces, the beautiful bouquets and buttonholes were from Flower Bug Designs and the gorgeous Guileshill Barn was decorated with the most beautiful flowers and thrifted vases by a crack team of Sarah's friends and family... :)

Such a relaxed, beautiful wedding with beautiful sunshine, lots of smiles and the cutest couple ever..
