In October 2016, we had the pleasure of photographing Annabelle for Samuelle Couture and Enchanted Atelier by Liv Hart in New York.

Always a pleasure to work with such tremendously talented artists.

We are beyond excited to announce dates for our next workshop, our first international photography workshop, "Horizons" or "Orrizonti." We fell in love with this region in the summer of 2015.

From August 28th - 31st, 2016, we are returning together with local Italian wedding planner & stylist Federica Beni of Honey & Cinnamon the Wedding Sparrow Team, and several other carefully chosen artists. Photographers from across the world are cordially invited to join us for an inclusive multi-day retreat + workshop in the rolling hills of Italy's Marche Region. We have rented out an entire villa to share with our attendees just outside of Ancona, where we will have time for our welcome dinner, classes, & intensive Q & A sessions. The workshop will feature several highly curated styled shoots with professional models and photographers will be free to submit images for publication.

Is this right for you? 

This workshop is for photographers who have been in business 1+ years, and have a good grasp on the basics of photography. If you are interested in photographing in one of Europe's most beautiful regions, connecting with your dream client, refining your brand, getting your work published, building lasting friendships in the industry, shooting FILM or simply shooting abroad, this workshop is for you! Finally, this is a workshop for photographers interested in PRACTICAL advice. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact us!

Review: "Remember in college when you’d sign up for that class that sounded so interesting? You’d show up the first day, sit through the class and think, “Wow. This is going to kill me.” But if you think back to that interesting college class, you showed up every day, you paid attention, and you became knowledgeable and awesome at a new trade. That’s what this workshop did for us. We had the opportunity to push our limits. Try new film stocks. Shoot indoors. Shoot boudoir. Play with fire (literally). We left the workshop feeling stretched, excited and new….which is exactly what we were looking for. Weddings are our business. And sometimes they can really take a lot out of you; you can easily feel rusty and creatively empty. This workshop was our opportunity to play, practice and create. We left... with a renewed spirit and a ravished creative appetite." -The Happy Bloom

Learning with Virginia Wedding Photographers Michael and Carina Photography

This past year has been nothing short of absolutely amazing.

We have been so honored to have worked with some fantastic people, both clients and other wedding professionals and creatives.

We still have to pinch ourselves about being featured on some of our favorite sources of inspiration.

We recently announced our 2nd workshop (for which there are two seats remaining!), and the response has been awesome. However, we know that for some people a workshop just isn't a possibility right now.

Now we want to give back.

The road to success is paved with hard work, it's true, but we believe behind every successful person there are people supporting them and believing in them along the way.

At least, that is how it's been for us - and this is one small way we can say thank you.

That's why we're so excited to offer T W O mentoring session scholarships with us via Skype or Google Hangout, at absolutely no cost.

For two hours, we'll sit down with the winners and answer all questions (about film, metering, finding your niche market, interacting with clients, pricing, getting published), and we're also open to reviewing your work or materials and offering helpful feedback where it's needed.

Just follow the instructions below to enter and on February 16th, 2015 the winners will be selected! Please be sure to leave a comment below letting us know what you'd be excited to learn with us!

Thank you again for your support!

xoxo M & C Richard Photo Lab
