Lindsay Coletta

Floral Designer

Working with Lindsay many times in the past, I must tell you, her flowers will leave you wanting more and more.  With her extreme attention to every single bloom enables her arrangements to photograph flawlessly from every angle.  Not only are her blooms top of the line but Lindsay has built an incredible business all over the country and the world.  What we are always looking for at the Vero photography workshop, is someone who is exceptionally different and overly creative.  We want to push outside the box and give the attendees something different, which is why Lindsay is such an asset.  Her eye for incredibly beautiful floral installations is something I have never seen.  Lindsay's ability to transform an ordinary space into a floral dream is something out of a fairy tail. Above all else, Lindsay's kind heart and down to earth personality makes her irreplaceable.

Top wedding photographers all over the world have longed for the opportunity to photograph Emily's gowns. As photographers, we pay close attention to details in our work, naturally, every single layer of fabric, every piece of lace, and every stitch in these gowns is so carefully thought out.  It makes the movement, texture, and whimsy come to life. Needless to say, we are thrilled to have not only her gowns, but Emily, in person!

Kelly Berry

Photographer + host

 

I am thankful to say that I have had many opportunities that have lead me to some significant accomplishments.  I strive to think outside of the box and shoot in my own unique way which has landed me in top three of Best of Magnolia Rouge 2016, Green Wedding Shoes, Martha Stewart Weddings', Inspired By This, Utterly Engaged, and many more. I have invested in myself and my education with receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography, attending many business and photography retreats, and studying under some of the best creatives in the world such as photographer Jasmin Star, photographer Corbin Gurkin, wedding planner and floral designer Jacin Fitzgerald, former content creator for Style Me Pretty  Abby Caplabo, Owner of Easton Events Lynn Easton, and many more. I am always investing back into myself, that is one investment that you will never regret. What inspires me the most is light, I fell in love with it a long time ago and still have a deep love affair for it.  Creating your perfect image, in a sense, is almost like designing a set.  I pay close attention to every single detail in a shot, there are no coincidences (well let's be real, that does happen on a lucky day:) For those of you who know me, know that I wear my heart on my sleeve, I am very humble, I give everything I have, I dream very big, and I live by the notion that nothing is too far out of reach.  When I built the Vero photography workshop, my mission was simple, I wanted to give creatives a place where they could truly learn what it took to grow a successful creative business.  I wanted to design a place of comfort, community, and the real deal kind of education. I am a very down to earth girl, and I feel that best kind of friends are the ones that always tell it to you straight, am I right? I believe that if you work hard enough, you can achieve any and everything, but you have got to put in the work first.  My role at Vero is to inspire you with possibilities and encouragement, to teach you all that I know about photography, growing a business,  and to have you realize that anything is possible if you have the right attitude.
