Photography + Styling Workshop in Asheville NC

First We Eat - Asheville Workshop

So, I dreamed of this one time I was at a retreat in the beautiful Smokey Mountains. It was a wonderland filled with cast iron skillets, super talented women, and amazing food (and it was perfectly acceptable to style and shoot that amazing food before you ate it).

Kidding. Not just a dream. That happened. And it was awesome.

First We Eat has begun hosting these photography + styling workshops. They are held in beautiful locations, with wonderful fellow bloggers, and it. was. just. so. awesome.

+ Amazing house that is literally my dream home + The sweetest gift bag + note from our lovely hosts! + Prop shopping at Antique Tobacco Barn (read: massive warehouse full of amazing everything) + Wine + S'mores around a bonfire + Best Etsy shops for props and styling + Fishing + beer at the river + Catered dinner with tons of local-to-NC ingredients (that balsamic vinegar was off. the. chain.)

And best of all? We were all able to totally nerd out about food and take tons of photos before our meals without judgement! :]

This workshop was a mini vacation.

While we're all real serious about food, it wasn't all-serious-all-the-time. Tons of fun and comic relief with Eva, Carey, Molly, Kelly, Grace, Shelly, Patty, and Rebecca! It was so freaking cool to meet the real ladies behind all these blogs I have been (and will continue to be) stalking!
