You can only imagine having a well-known company across the country. The blood, sweat and tears that gets put into having your own business are unfathomable to some. Many professionals hope to become a successful entrepreneur in an industry that they love. Val Westover and Stephanie Adriana have an undeniable passion for photography and their company has recently been overwhelmed with exposure across the United States. When we initially sat down with Westover and Adriana to begin planning their exclusive “Capturing True Emotion Photography Workshops” we were ecstatic… little did we know just how big of a success this was about to be.
We started off slow with just a few cities and in three short months we are currently working in Albuquerque, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Orange County, Salt Lake City and Tucson. Also, we are excited to launch our upcoming line-up which is Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Portland, Seattle and Vegas. Westover and Adriana could not be more appreciative and humbled by the continuing success of their workshops. In addition, this is a phenomenal holiday gift idea for your friends and family that reside in any of the fifteen cities where the workshop is offered.

As you may know, Event Complete has partnered with award winning photographers, Val Westover and Stephanie Adriana with their “Capturing True Emotion Photography Workshops” for the first ever, Groupon Experience. I had the pleasure of attending a workshop in Los Angeles at the prestigious UCLA campus this week with Val and Stephanie… and what a great experience it was! I was able to see firsthand how phenomenal the workshops are due to the superb teaching techniques from Westover and Adriana. They provide so much useful information in just four hours that it is equivalent to the amount of material you learn throughout a college course. Over 100 attendees were present and the energy in the room was inspirational. During the lunch break passionate, eager photographers lingered around for a chance to speak with Westover and Adriana for once in a lifetime advice. The Photo Safari provides the attendees with a hands-on outdoor photo assignment to enhance and practice the skills they learned in the workshop. Mid-day all of the attendees went out to a beautiful area of UCLA to start shooting. We were surrounded by libraries and museums with intricate architecture, sunlight and abundant landscape… it was perfect for any aspiring photographer. I have posted a few of my own pictures that I took at the photo safari that day, and may I add that I am an amateur! I consistently heard feedback from the participants throughout the day and it was nothing but positive. “I have learned so much from this class Val, now I know what all of the buttons on my camera mean!” an attendee announced. As we were leaving the parking lot that evening attendees were stopping Westover and Adriana to personally thank them for the amazing workshop. At the end of the day, I “captured the emotion” on Westover and Adriana’s faces. I saw their love for teaching photography and what a rewarding profession it is.
