Speaker: The Roadshow Wedding
Syed Yaqeen & Tonia Adleta
Have you put time into a styled shoot, or into shooting your event, and found that no one is interested in the images and story you're trying to tell? Have you run into professionals who just aren't interested in putting 100% into the shoot? Or have you had trouble figuring out how to use the shoot and publication in your marketing? Join us as we learn how to truly set up a styled shoot. We will cover the research into what publications are looking for, vendor selection and performance, setting up for the right shots, marketing the first round, and marketing the same shoot, as well as publications, year over year. We will also be having a fabulous dinner at the Sanctuary so come hungry!
The Roadshow Wedding was born of the idea that the world is a place of endless beauty and creativity to be explored. Two creative professionals, both respected authorities and educators in the wedding and special events industries, with an incurable case of wanderlust.
Using the canvas of a styled shoot to both create art and to teach the techniques and thought process behind it all, Syed Yaqeen and Tonia Adleta have taken to the road to collaborate with and teach fellow wedding and event professionals around the world.
Syed Yaqeen is an award-winning visual story-teller, educator and mentor. Based in New York City and traveling worldwide for both his art and his clients, Syed brings an eye for story - along with decades of experience to impart. Highly sought after in high fashion and bridal markets, editorial and by wedding couples around the world, Syed provides the insight of one of the best photographers in the business to learn from - whether you're holding the camera or designing for it.
Tonia Adleta is the owner and Creative Director of Aribella Events, an award-winning wedding and event planning and floral design company based in Philadelphia. With her passport in one hand and coffee in the next, she sees beauty in the details and weaves those details together to tell a story. As an educator and mentor, she provides insight to the full spectrum of the creative process, from overall vision to detailed execution, as well as how to co-create and execute a vision in partnership.
Together Syed and Tonia's work has been featured in over 50 publications, both print and digital, including The New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, Grace Ormonde, Inside Weddings, Chicago Bride, Weddings Unveiled, Bridal Musings, Style Me Pretty, Ruffled, Carats and Cake, The Knot, Brides Magazine, Wedding Wire, Burnett's Board, and Munaluchi Bride, along with dozens of others.
