Our first Snap Class! was held at the beautiful Beachwood StudiosGeronimo Balloons was sweet enough to give us a bunch of balloons to decorate the space
Disregarden provided all the furniture, accessories and fun vintage props for the students to photograph

more after the jump...

The amazing Rebecca Buenik helped us style the space and made us all the confetti
In the morning, Stumptown Coffee Roasters provided us with the much needed cold brew and Figgy Bakery made us all kinds of yummy vegan and gluten free pastries for our students to snack on
One of our local favorites, P.F. Candle Co. gave us the most amazing smelling campfire candle to burn in class and a little something for each of the students
Urban Palate provided the most delicious lunch, perfect for practicing our food photography skills as well as eating, of course
The adorable Clöe from Bon Puf came and surprised the students with cotton candy
Snap Class! Los Angeles was such an amazing day and experience. Kim and I had only taught mini workshops in the past, so teaching a full day was a slightly terrifying, yet exciting challenge. I can't get over how creative, fun an eager to learn each and every one of our students were. You all made our hard work and months of planning worth it. I can hardly believe Snap Class! San Francisco is less than two weeks away. If you'd like to join us, we still have a few spots left!

Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors and vendors, who all contributed in making our first Snap Class! so special:
