The White Sparrow *Dallas, Texas* Kristi O’Connell Wedding Photography

I was so excited to be a guest at the Styled Shoots Across America Conference in Dallas this past week.  It was my first time attending a styled shoot of this scale.  With approximately 150 attendees the Conference was everything I had hoped for and more.  They had amazing speakers, who are each experts in their niche,  I learned something from every lady who stood and spoke.  I left the conference buzzing with excitement for all the things I can do in my photography work, but also with Perfect Wedding Guide.  I am super excited for the future, and excited to see more of my photography published.  Thank you again to all the vendors, and speakers who made the conference, magical!
