What You'll Learn

Presented by:

Beth Greentree and Cal Cheney of All Digital Photo and Video have filmed Colorado couples at their weddings for 15 years. Training and working as a team, they love to capture the essence of their clients' wedding day through candid photojournalistic photography and videography. Every spring they hold classes for up and coming photographers, and this is the perfect opportunity to learn from the best.

As a photojournalist and videographer, Cal ultimately grew All Digital to include wedding photography as a preferred vendor at some of Colorado's top venues. Having shot over a thousand weddings, he enjoys sharing his knowledge with new photographers and videographers. With a degree in visual art and writing from Naropa University, Beth first managed a commercial portrait studio, and then joined the team at All Digital in 2008. She loves to work one-on-one with new students, helping them to learn what works in the real world of wedding photography.
