LaJoy Photography Workshop: The Wedding Day
This year I decided to step out on faith and hold my very first workshop. This was such a scary time. Yes I have followers and people who say they love my work and would love to learn from me but my biggest concern was would people really attend a workshop hosted by me and only me. Not only did I fill all of my seats but I also was able to have attendees come from 4 different states both male and female. One girl even drove down in her last couple of months of her pregnancy just to attend the workshop.
I reached out to a lot of companies to sponsor the event and even speak at the event. I was met with both positive and negative feedback so this was not an easy journey. My sponsors and speakers who decided to work with me are all people who believed I could achieve my goals and not once doubted my abilities after reaching out to them. I needed positive energy surrounding me for my first workshop and that is just what I got. I am so blessed to have had so many vendors that saw my vision and helped me execute it clearly. Here is what we accomplished!

I want to give a huge thank you to my amazing boyfriend and Videographer that has pushed me to be better and is the main reason I use video now in my company. Thank you for all of the love and support Teko Lewis!
