Boheme Photo Workshop in Greece: Day 1

Boheme Photo Workshop In Greece: Day 1

Whew! What a whirlwind 24 hours it has been! Yesterday evening I left Pisa, Italy and got on a flight to Athens, Greece so that I could attend Boheme Workshop‘s five day wedding photography workshop on the Mediterranean coast.

Even though Italy is just next door to Greece, the best flights I could find had me arriving in Athens at 1 AM, so Day 1 of the workshop started with a long night of traveling for me. In the airport, I “slept” — or more precisely, laid down with my eyes closed for five hours — on a bench in McDonalds. Glamorous, right? The other attendees have also come from all over the world (so far I’ve met people from Canada, the Netherlands, and the States!) and have had equally exhausting journeys.

But one night of inconvenience was definitely worth it because tonight, THIS is where we’ll be sleeping…

I could die.

We’re staying at the incredible Romanos Costa Navarino Resort in Messinia, and if that gorgeousness wasn’t enough, the Boheme team thoughtfully put together the most beautiful welcome baskets I’ve ever seen. Seriously swoon-worthy. I may or may not have already dipped into that little Greek honey pot (shhh).

Later tonight, there’s a meet and greet with the Boheme team and other attendees. If tonight has set the tone for the next few days, I can’t wait to see what other amazing things we have in store!

I’m Going to Greece!

I’m Going To Greece!

You know why I love Instagram? Because I am constantly discovering amazing people in the wedding industry who I might not have come across otherwise. Just a few months back, I came across an Instagram contest for a seat at a luxury photo workshop hosted by Boheme Studios and Wedding Sparrow in southern Greece.

Now, in just a few short days, I am off to JOIN that very same workshop! I cannot believe this is my real life.

The workshop will be five days of lectures from amazing photographers and editors, plus four or five photo shoots, all in the name of becoming a better wedding photographer. And (if that wasn’t amazing enough) all of us workshop attendees are staying at this gorgeous hotel: The Romanos Collection at Costa Navarino.

Yeah.

I could just about die, I’m so excited.

Can’t wait to share all the pretty photos here afterwards!
