Images from Elizabeth Messina’s A Lovely Workshop

July 21, 2010 | Christy

In May, the incomparable wedding photographer Elizabeth Messina hosted a workshop in France, and the photographers from around the world who attended experienced a week of creativity and astounding beauty that they will surely never forget. Our own Junebug co-founder Kim and her husband Adam worked along side Elizabeth to make this event come to life (the chateau where the workshop was held was the location of Kim and Adam’s wedding a few years back, which Blair and I were so very lucky to attend!) and so today we are able to show you a glimpse of the photographic magic that took place during that special week. On Photobug we have the images taken by Elizabeth herself (go take a look!), and here we have the beautiful wedding inspiration that was captured by the A Lovely Workshop attendees. Enjoy!

The location, the straight-out-of-a-fairytale Chateau St. Julien l’Ars
