Every change we get, we create something that showcases our own aesthetics as a brand, and we usually call it Inspired Gatherings. Normally is not a full editorial with model or too heavy on details and styling, but everytime, each image speaks to us in a way we truly relate as a brand. For our latest Inspired Gathering, we paired withT Bakes, who designed this next spectacular cake and cookies.
traveling light & a workshop
Today's post is dedicated to those who, like us, work on this glorious thing called wedding industry! For the last couple of years we all been seeing numerous workshops, conferences, webinars, etc... tools that can help us evolve and improve our crafts. Either you're a photographer, a stylist, a floral designer, etc... these days there's so much information and great opportunities to learn, share your ideas and grow!
Traveling Light will be perfect for you! 10 conferences with film photographers and also various Workshops, including our very own workshop (a first for us, actually!!) where we will be talking about 3 main subjects, that have a tremendous importance in our personal lives:
Understanding the importance of unveiling your own brand’s DNA.
To help you get out of your comfort zone, and get inspired by everything that surrounds you.
To ensure a high level of personal satisfaction and professional fulfillment over the years.
For a long time we struggled with balance between personal life and a professional career and we then discover that when we acknowledge and learn to balance these 3 things, we found happiness and fulfilment! So we hope to see you there in November when we will be able to talk a lot more about this and also, style and shoot during Traveling Light! Don't forget to check their website today and learn more about this wonderful opportunity to meet like minded people, and those who can inspire you and help you move forward!

inspired gatherings VIII - floral design by brancoprata
If you follow us along you probably notice that we talk a lot about Inspired Gatherings, we even have a tag for it! But what does that means, what is an inspired gathering? Whenever we have time, we like to play with flowers and styling techniques! We normally shoot everything in our own studio, with natural light and of course, on film, like everything else you see on this website!!
It's basically a floral design exercise we do it here at Brancoprata, hoping we can always inspire future couples when it comes to designing their day, and making sure they understand that there is so much more to a wedding than choosing a color pallette and favorite flowers.
Inspired Gatherings VII
We've been designing flowers for the last 14 years and although some people think we are just a photography studio, styling and floral design are two of the services we offer our clients since the first day we were in business.
Of course we have two separate teams: one that does film photography and another one that styles and designs florals for weddings and other events! One of the questions we are asked many time over the years, is if we work together all the time! I would be lying if I told know that we don't love to work together on weddings and other events, however is completely possible to just hire our photography services, or just our floral design services!
Anyway, one of the perks of own a floral design studio with film photograper inhouse, is that everything you design is always photographed, like these flowers we are sharing today! A few leftovers from another project turned into centerpieces that hopefully can inspire you!
Mary and Gianluca Adovasio, the founders of Ostuni Workshop, invited us to be part of this year's edition of the workshop! For those who don't know the concept, Ostuni Workshop is a gathering for wedding photographers who want to increase their fame, differentiate themselves from their competitors and acquire more customers all over the world. Their main purpose is sharing... sharing your experiences, your beliefs, your passion! Exciting right?
We are super excited to be part of this year's edition of Ostuni Workshop, where we will talk a little more about how we manage to keep inspire after 14 years working in the wedding industry, how we deal with the changes we see happening over the years, how we deal with the struggles of being an entrepreneur, and especially your own boss! But we will also talk about the beauty of shooting film and how it's a massive part of our process! We will be as honest and clear as we possibly can, we think that is the beauty of these gatherings, were you can put your guard down and just share!
