Data Management and Workflow in Lightroom
A good data management system is crucial to being a successful studio. Learn about different ways to manage your data, including a brief overview of RAID and cloud-based systems (and we why love our RAID!). Organize your files using Lightroom's cataloging capabilities. We'll demonstrate a workflow that keeps your portfolio updated in real time, keeps your catalogs synched across your in-studio network, and makes in-studio sales a breeze. This talk will be focused more on the data management capabilities of Lightroom, and less on editing in the Develop module.
Our photographic bio seems to revolve around conventions! We met at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) convention in 2009, fell in love, and created indigosilver studio less than 1 year later. We recently got engaged at the Imaging USA convention in January, and we are so thrilled to be speaking at the Wedding Photographic Society convention this summer! We love to learn and to share ideas with others. We are currently excited about our newest concept, The Shoot Space, which will be a new camera room and meeting/sales space for the local photographic community, opening this fall.
- Renee is our latest chapter leader heading up the Greensboro chapter with her Husband Jonathan. Renee & Jonathan spoke at the 2012 WPS convention and are thrilled to bring everything the WPS exemplifies to the triad area! Welcome Renee and Jonathan!!

hello fellow wps'ers:
I dont normally do this, but I have an energetic young customer at Southeastern Camera, Kat Taylor, who is a high school/college age photographer in Wilmington for the summer looking to work for, or assist a wedding photographer. She is looking for experience mostly, so would be very cheap if not free for some photographer to get a little help this summer.
her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is (910) 904-0506. She would love to hear from somebody. Not sure how experienced she is, but she seems focused on photography!

Wanted to thank you for accepting my membership. I got into wedding photography about 5-6 years ago and I work part time doing wedding photography and full time in internet marketing for an auto group.
I am always looking to get better at what I do and look forward to trying to exchange information. Hopefully, I can provide some good insight into trying to market yourself online better and I can get some great photography tips in return.

Quick question... I have always had a membership to shoot at Duke Gardens but I haven't shot there in the last 2 years or so unless it was a wedding. And I NEVER shoot on the weekends due to all the people. But I have a maternity shoot and she can't drive too far from home so I am trying to decide what is better UNC or Duke Gardens. Are they asking for proof of membership? Even if I paid there would be no way to get it done today. Any info is much appreciated.
Need answer today...

Thanks for having me. I'm from the wonderful Lehigh Valley in Pa. My wife Kristi and I are in our 11th. year shooting weddings from local to Pittsburgh to the Chesapeake. I think my quest for a kinder, nicer forum has ended.

WPS newbie! It has been a long time since I have been a newbie. I was a DWF member for many years and love being able to share and learn from others. I have been a professional photographer for over 12 years and am based out of Charlotte NC. I shoot weddings and boudoir. I would be hard pressed to pick which I love the most, both hold a special place in my heart. I feel like I have two sets of photography friends, those that know I shoot weddings and those that know I shoot boudoir. Sometimes they are surprised when I mention shooting one or the other.
I am married to Thomas Geist (Zee German - for any past DWF members). He is also a photographer and we actually met over 7 years ago at a DWF convention during WPPI in Vegas. He is a plethora of knowledge not only in photography but it seems like everything, he is so smart! I am blessed to have such an amazing husband.
I hope to connect with some old friends here and make many new ones.

Just wanted to take a moment and say hi. My name is Rita and I am the wife half of the husband/wife team The Wiebners, based in Lancaster, PA. Joel (my husband) and I have been photographing weddings for over 10 years, and while we were pretty active in forums and such about 5 years ago, we had taken a long break since then. I am ready to start sharing and being a part of the community again! We have missed making connections and learning from other photographers. I hope to have some fun on here, learn, and offer any advice I can to anyone who will listen. Thanks!

Tyler’s passion for documentary photography was ignited 15 years ago during his short but very influential time working as a newspaper photographer.It was during this time he discovered the world of true documentary photography and the power a true moment can posses. He then took his experience as a photojournalist and applied it to wedding photography in 2002 when he started Wirken Photography. 10 years later he now runs the business with his wife Pam in Kansas City, Missouri where he documents 25 weddings a year as well as filling his time traveling teaching his way of documentary wedding photography as part of his own Wirkshop Series and the Foundation Workshop. Tyler was also recently awarded one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine for 2013.

(JVS) is a documentary and editorial photographer based in Metro DC. He lives and breathes photography. His passion for teaching began in 2004 and to this day loves sharing his 15+ years of experience with other photographers. Examples of his work can viewed at http://jvscreative.com
My three favorite things in life are capturing genuine moments, creating dynamic portraits, and my wife. If I had to choose a fourth... it would be Snuffer's Cheddar Fries. I've been fortunate to win a few awards including the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for International Photojournalism as well as being named a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
I live just outside of Washington, DC in Alexandria, VA with my wife Anne and our two kiddos, Chloe and Nero (Yorkipoo & Miniature White Poodle).
