What an incredible adventure with two incredible people…

After email exchanges with Melissa that were filled to the brim with pure excitement, I just couldn’t wait to meet these guys and capture their vision of a destination elopement. Bill “spends half his life in the ocean” and so saying their vows on a rock in the sea was so perfect. The little rock was located under a natural arch along one of the most amazing beaches I’ve visited, Praia das Catedrais, Northern Spain.

I couldn’t help get a little emotional when preparing this post as all the good memories came flooding back and it’s a pleasure to share them with you.

Melissa and Bill, it was a true honour to be your witness and photographer on a day I’ll never forget. Thank you so much.

Workshop [Every Wedding is an Adventure]

Wedding photography workshop

My friend Nirav Patel and I have decided to team up and put together an adventure themed workshop in the San Francisco Bay Area. We’ll be teaching an overnight workshop around building a successful business that will give you opportunities and the time to do the things you’re passionate about. We’ll cover topics such as finding your voice, staying inspired, and working efficiently. There will be a little hiking involved so be ready with some sturdy shoes and a warm jacket. The goal for us is to create something that feels organic (less classroom…more indiana jones) and that everyone could enjoy and feel comfortable to be a part of. By the end of the workshop, we’re hoping that you’ll be fired up and ready to accomplish your goals and find the answer to how you can create that business you’ve always wanted.

Here’s some information…

When: January 7th & 8th 2014 (Full Day Workshop on the 7th, Breakfast on the 8th)

Where: San Francisco, CA. (actual location is 50 minutes north of SF at Point Reyes Station)

Details: An overnight adventure workshop that will cover inspiration, branding/ business and working efficiently. Events include a live shoot, hiking adventure, and late night talks under the stars. Food & lodging is included with your reservation.

Price: $1,000 USD

Booking Your Spot: Please email Nirav at contact[at]niravpatelphotography.com to secure your spot. 15 spots available on a first come first serve basis. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you!
