    I just have to post because Elizabeth is far too humble to say anything but this workshop was AMAZING! It was the most decadent feast for the eyes...... truly, there has never been a workshop quite like this with all the love and care that was put in. Photographers came from all over the country and it was just the most lovely day to get to know them and shoot some truly epic imagery. Cannot wait till the next event. :)

    I second k*'s comment! It was the most amazing workshop not just because of the wonderful location, decadent feast and inspiring design, but also because of the talented and lovely ladies and gentlemen who were there. Everyone was so generous and warm. I'm truly honored to be included. Thank you Elizabeth! It truly was "A Lovely Workshop". Can't wait to see the images... xoxo

    Couldn't have said it better than K* and Chewing the Cud. It was beyond my expectations... truly inspiring. How lucky we are to have been a part of it! Thank you Elizabeth and all the super-talented collaborators!
