WPPI 2013 Recap


This is the third year I attended WPPI in Las Vegas and was pretty amazing. My first year, I had no idea what was going on and overbooked myself trying to do everything at once. It was still a wonderful experience though! The same for the second year. That year, I worked at a booth during the Expo so was standing and talking to people for three days straight. It was overwhelming in a whole different way.

Ready to fly! Just waiting on  my flying buddy! #imkindofabigdeal #wppi #wppi2013 #pdx #airport #ibelieveicanfly

This year, I had my schedule to myself. I flew with the lovely and beautiful Kristina of Kristina Kathryn Brand Design and we stayed that night at the Air Force Base with the fabulous Amber (her assistant and friend) before driving to the strip.

Even got to indulge in coffee and some toddler snuggle time before leaving!

Hot coffee and Nick Jr with a little buddy this morning before embarking to the madness of #wppi. It's a good way to wake up in #vegas! #wppi2013 #morningcuppajoe

Our view is pretty spectacular for a regular room! #mgmgrand #vegas #wppi #wppi2013 #wideopenspaces

This year, in addition to the regular fun stuff, we also left the MGM hotel and even left the strip for a meal one night!

Dinner at Brio!


Dueling Pianos at New York New York was pretty amazing and a great excuse to get dressed up!



The classes were great this year too. My favorite speaker this year again was Elizabeth Messina – she is such a beautiful speaker, a wonderful photographer and has one of those souls that is divine. I wish I had gotten a better picture….alas, such is life!

The gorgeous @elizabethmessina after a beautiful talk. She is a great photographer, but I love, adore and am drawn to herself as a person. Her soul is beautiful. #beautiulpeople #ilovemylife


I even managed to get some work done! Being self employed means you are never really off duty but being able to hang out in the sun with a glass of wine in the middle of the day makes it easier to handle!

Living the high life. Working in the sun with a glass of wine. #thephotogshelper #workinghard #vegas #wppi #wppi2013


I cannot wait to see what next year will bring. Each year is so different and yet so comfortably refreshing! Even getting a bloody nose in the middle of Sue Bryce‘s class was worth it. I’m putting together a post of some incredible new vendors to tell you about too! I even brought home a bit of love from one of them for you guys!

I hope you have a glorious week!

    I went to WPPI last year but I never stepped foot in a class! LOL I had planned to go to WPPI but then my sister in law offered to watch the kids and the hubs and I were able to go as an anniversary trip. I was able to meet a bunch of online photog friends! It was great! We went to Pawn Stars, bought some cheap gold bands and got our vows renewed by Elvis. I can’t wait to go back to Vegas. We are planning a trip with the kiddos!
