ABC Kentucky June Meeting
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
5:30pm - 8:00pm
The Gillespie Loft
421 West Market Street
Our June meeting is all about "Image"! We have some great speakers lined up and some super fun hands-on stuff too. This meeting will be a great opportunity to network with other wedding vendors, check out the unique spaces available at the Gillespie, and learn lots of great tips and ideas that will help your "image".
A little about our speakers...
- Most of you know La'Keta Bobbitt from her company Something Special Weddings & Events, but La'Keta has also recently become a Mary Kay consultant. La'Keta will talk about the products and services that Mary Kay has specifically designed with brides in mind. She will also talk about their skin care line and offer some fabulous skin care tips that we can use to improve our own "image" and also share with our brides. There will be some samples, so be prepared to try them out!
- Nick Baute is one of the owners and operators of Hound Dog Press in downtown Louisville. He will talk to us a little about the history of letterpress, the history of their shop, and their personal approach to working with clients. In order to help us with our images, Nick will give us a little insight into his process as a designer and what makes a good, effective design. Hound Dog Press does a lot of work for brides and grooms so this is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about a great local company that will take fantastic care of our clients.
- Our keynote presentation will be given by Amy Shepherd of Amy Shepherd Photography. Sometimes we are not fortunate enough to work with a photographer who freely shares images from our weddings, so Amy will be giving us tips on how we can take our own images worthy of including in our portfolio. This is also helpful if you want to snap a few photos with your phone or tablet and post to Facebook or Twitter that same night. Learning about the elements of a great photo (lighting, composition, angle, etc.) will also help us in working with brides and selling the services of our favorite professional photographers, such as Amy. Make sure you bring your own camera (or phone) as this presentation has a hand-on portion. We will have a beautiful sample table setup so we can practice the tips that Amy provides (along with her guidance of course)!
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 19th! Please register early so we can make proper arrangements and confirm with our speakers. Register will expire on Monday, June 17th. Happy Summer!
