Engage Luxury Wedding Business Summits Sea Island, Georgia
When some of the best wedding professionals in the world come together to learn, they also throw some of the most amazing parties. Engage Luxury Wedding Business Summits is a gathering of luxury event professionals who come together at top wedding venues for inspiration and the opportunity to meet and network. This year I (Jennifer) worked behind the scenes to organize the photography team that covered the event and handled the post-event image processing, a familiar and comfortable role for me. I think I just like hanging out with photographers. Or maybe it comes from my deep love of photography on all levels- whether I'm mentoring, shooting or working on images, I feel happy. And happy I was at this Engage because I was able to bring along Elisha Coleman this time and she produced some killer images. Also because I worked with some of the top talent shown below from left: John Cain Sargent, Carla Ten Eyck, Joel CallawayElisha Coleman, Jennifer Domenick, Gigi de Manio, Paul Morse and not pictured Laura DeCarlo. Here is just a snippet of the many photos from the event.

The Knot Founder Carley Roney spoke:
Dear friend Donna Von Bruening spoke about being in for the long game. A sentiment that hits home for me. I wear Old Navy and don't apologize for it. I've had my studio at Savage Mill for twelve years because I know how to manage that cost. I run my business for the long haul, knowing that my passion for making and creating pictures and mentoring photographers is heavy fuel, not ready to burn out anytime soon. I make smart money decisions and don't spend frivolosly I've weathered the tough times and have been thankful to come out the other side stronger and smarter. Thanks Donna for saying all the things that we needed to hear.
After some heavy opening speeches, champagne was in order for the break:
