The Bloom Workshop gets a Blog (and a giveaway!)

It’s a happy Monday today! Want to know why? We launched The Bloom Workshop blog today! We want to be a continued resource for creative businesses owners and bloggers to gain helpful insight, tips and inspiration. You can head over to the Bloom blog today and enter a really fun giveaway of one of our Bloom Workshop swag bags! 

One of the main features on the Bloom blog will be to showcase either styled shoots or real weddings. Instead of the typical wedding blog feature, the feature on our Bloom’s blog will, of course, show the pretty images of the wedding or shoot, but then primarily focus on interviewing the vendor and artists involved in the shoot. After we see the submissions, we will come up with specific questions related to how you came up with the concept, what projects you did on your own, and any tips you have for other vendors putting together a shoot or wedding. We want the blog to always be a resource for others, so focusing on giving our readers this insider information is going to be key and it will pose you, as the artist (photographer, designer, florist, etc.) as an expert in your field.
So, we’d love to hear from YOU! If you are a photographer, florist, event or interior designer and stylist, or any other type of creative business owner with something gorgeous to share, please submit your images to info@ashleyslaterphotography.com  with subject line Bloom Blog Feature. Be sure to send me a dropbox or google drive link to the folder of images. Please include 20-30 photos for us to look through and a short description of the shoot. If we think your photos and story are a good fit for Bloom, we will be in touch shortly!
Here are some topics we would love to feature:
– Inspiration shoots with unique concepts and stories
– Engagement shoots with unique and beautiful locations
– Interior photos of well-designed homes
– Real weddings, showcasing beautiful details
– Floral bouquet recipes
– Fashion / editorial shoots
Hope to hear from you soon! Head over to Bloom’s blog to read about how The Bloom Workshop was founded and stay tuned– we have tons of informational and inspiring posts coming your way, starting this week!
If there are any specific topics covering blogging, business, photography, design or social media, you’d like to see on our blog, let me know in the comments!

Southern Inspired Marsh Dinner Party


Late last summer, as wedding season was still in full swing and the leaves on the trees were hinting at beginning to change color I met up with stylist and wedding coordinator Shelby of the Day’s Design.  For weeks Shelby had been putting together a styled photo shoot with southern inspirations as the driving force.

Baby #2 Wish List!


1.  Baby K’Tan Wrap-Heather Gray  |  I used the moby wrap last time, which I loved but this time around I would like something with a little more support and in a lighter color (I had black last time) so I don’t get so overheated wearing it! 2. Chicco Double Stroller | I am going Read The Full Post >>>

Gatsby Inspired Winter Wedding | Jim & Laura Married


This Gatsby inspired wedding had me from the start. Michigan winters are hard, and sometimes pulling off a beautiful wedding in the midst of a long, bitter winter is risky. When I heard this bride was taking her event in a vintage art-deco direction I was so excited. And the details? Well, they make all Read The Full Post >>>

With a quick google search, anyone can access more blogging advice than is humanly possible to sort through.  Talk about heaps upon heaps of conflicting advice out there in cyberspace– and if you are new to blogging it can be very confusing.  Instead of telling you the best practices for blogging, I am going to give Read The Full Post >>>
