One Day Storytelling Workshops 2016

My One Day Storytelling Workshop took me all around the world in 2015. I didn’t expect it to have such an impact on people, but after a while it almost took on a life of its own. The wedding industry is always evolving and I think photographers need to be ahead of whatever game is played. To me a good story always wins. And how to tell that story is a skill. In my One Day Storytelling Workshop you will learn how I tell my stories and how you can apply a storytelling mindset to all parts of your business and life. Today we’re rolling out the first workshop dates for 2016. All 15 workshops sold out last year, so if you’re interested, I’d recommend signing up today.

Portland, OR – 2 May 2016

Houston, TX – 5 May 2016

NYC – 9 May 2016

Kauai Elopement – Laura and David

Always look for the stories, they’re always about people.

This is something I always try to tell myself going into a new wedding, connecting with people I have never met. On paper this is an elopement on Kauai, a sunrise ceremony at the beach where Laura and David got engaged. But if you listen and look further, you will also see this is a story about David’s parents coming back to the island they decided to bring him up on for the first time in 25 years. It’s a story of family. When we started walking down the beach to get to the ceremony location before sunrise, I quickly noticed we would never make it in time. I looked at David and realised it wasn’t about sunrise, it was about David helping his parents, showing care for the people he loves.

There will always be another sunrise.

Look after the people you love.

Below is David and Laura’s emails to me after I sent them their slideshow, David’s is written just before he watched it, Laura’s is written directly after.

jonas, brother,

i just wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you for everything you’ve done for us and with us…

your photography (and our love for it) aside, you were such a special part of our adventure and we’re both forever grateful. 

L came in a few minutes ago with a huge smile on her face and the news that you had written. we’re about to sit down and watch the slideshow and, for whatever reason, i’ve just been wanting to get out these few words before seeing any images from our day (L has been following FB/IG/etc., whereas i’ve been forcing myself to wait just a bit longer while still processing everything)… i suppose as some way of expressing that your photography is only one part of the many gifts you give and that we are truly thankful for all that you do…

i have much more to say, but for now… thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hi Jonas,

::silence::

Thank you for this gift. I have been sitting here watching it over and over again trying to take in the emotion that comes with reliving that beautiful day and trying to put into words how it makes me feel but I can’t. If you could have witnessed the moment David and I sat down watching it together and the moment the image of him walking with his parents to “our spot” showed up…. we both grasped our hands to our mouths as tears streamed down our cheeks, then maybe, then….. you could know just how much this gift means to us.

I am actually crying now just trying to figure out a way to express to you our gratitude. As you know I wasn’t able to have my Grandparents be there in physical being for our wedding but the rainbows, rain and breeze brought them there to me that morning and the image of that single tear running down my cheek while Kelvin said a prayer for them will serve as the reminder of those moments for me forever.

Thank you! This is the best gift we could ever have been given; your friendship and your art.

– Laura
