Jessica Claire’s Workshop – An Orange County Vintage Wedding

Jessica Claire has always been a photographer role model of mine.  Her relaxed yet glamourous photos always intrigues me.

When I saw that Jessica Claire is going to have her first workshop, I was so excited ! I couldn’t wait to meet her and see her work! Unfortunately I was in a meeting when Jessica’s workshop registration opened. By the time my meeting was over, her workshop had already been filled….


Lucky me, a couple of weeks later, Jessica announced a 2nd workshop, just a day later than the first one ! I was thrilled ! This time, I made sure that I was free when registration opened, and was able to secure a spot in the worshop.

We started the day with lecture, business sides of wedding photography.  Jessica emphasize on individuality and understand ourselves; so we can show our personality through photography.

Jessica went above and beyond for the workshop attendees, she decided to have a mock wedding and reception setup so the workshop attendees can experience first hand what she does during a wedding. What an awesome idea !

Our models Gena and Jeff didn’t hire a wedding photographer on their wedding day four years ago. I’m so glad that they were able to get gorgeous wedding photos from Jessica and a bunch of other wedding photographers four years later !

The team that put this wedding together worked very hard, and I want to make sure they get credit for it.

Jessica Claire Wedding Workshop - Orange County Vintage Wedding Photography (Jenny Liu Photographer)

As a wedding photographer, we often sees the stress that the couple experience prior to the wedding. So it’s a really good idea to do a first look of your future spouse prior to the ceremony. This ease that tension, and gives the couple much more time for wedding portraits, and time to talk to family and friends during cocktail hour.

Jessica also invited Michael Norwood and his family to be apart of the wedding party, including their little girl as the flower girl.
