I hope you all had a great Christmas and really fun New Year's Eve! The holidays were crazy around the Hoskins house with trips, sickness, and an awesome show at the bijou with the Dirty Guv's! I promise now that the holidays have come and gone, I will be back to the blogging world catching you up on some fun things that have been going on. In the meantime, just thought I would share with you some fun news! Just found out today that Ashley Hoskins Photography was voted Best Wedding Photographer in East Tennessee at Wedding Daily Times!
Thanks to everyone who voted! It was such a fun little surprise to see! Really energizes me for the new year and new season of weddings that is so quickly approaching. I have the greatest clients you could ever ask for and such a supporting family and community. I couldn't do this without ya'll!!
i am literally speechless when it comes to talking about my experience at the jose villa workshop. it truly was an experience of a lifetime. jose and his crew were FABULOUS, the food was amazing, the resort was amazing, and the people were just basically awesome. i went to this workshop as a sponge. i wanted to just absorb and take in everything around me. i want to be a better photographer, a better business owner, but also a better wife, daughter, and friend. finding that balance is so hard, but i really think that at this workshop, i learned a little bit of all of that.
when justin and i first walked into the hacienda, i was just floored. i had no idea what to expect, but what i saw was beyond my wildest dreams. the hospitality there really allowed us to be in a place where we could put everything else in our lives aside and focus on what we came there for. i am seriously forever grateful to everyone who was involved in the workshop. thank you for a once in a life time experience. it is one that i am sure to never forget.
(i had originally intended to do this workshop in a few posts, but decided to just combine them all into one, so sorry for the randomness :) enjoy )
and then of course, a huge, huge, huge thanks to jose and his whole team for making this workshop so phenomenal. you all are AMAZING!
