    ELOPEMENT • ADVENTURE • IN-HOME
    You guys. This is going to be SO freakin' good. The vendors and I have poured our hearts + souls into creating THE ultimate edgy bohemian styled shoots. I have jam-packed with retreat with a variety of different types of shoots: adventure, in-home, steamy and elopement/bridal. We will have 4-5 different couples modeling for us, so every single person will leave here with SO much unique content! Check out the shoot schedule and inspiration photos below!
    ELOPEMENTS

    We’re going to have two couples that rock two different looks. One of the looks will be featuring a dreamy boho  Rue De Seine Dress from Lovely Bride that hasn’t even been released yet!!! These two couples will have their own styled set-ups for the initial “vows”. We will be setting up the first couple in front of the A-Frame and the second couple will have a set up on our private dock! We will have a styled bohemian sweetheart table, peacock chairs, geometric arch, and a TON of boho/autumn florals by Winsome Florals!

    … andddd we will have a VINTAGE VW PHOTO BOOTH BUS! Yesss! I am SO thrilled about VW Booth Bus joining us! We will have styled florals and a set-up around the bus, making it the ultimate vintage dream! Check out “Poppy” using the link above!

    ADVENTURE/ENGAGEMENT

    These shoots are going to be so much fun!!! It’ll be a great way to try out new prompts and learn from myself + others that you’re shooting alongside with! We will jam to some music, have different looks for outfits and shoot a TON! They’ll be located at many of the different surroundings around the house. Around the A-frame itself, by the campfire(s), in the woods, pathways, and a dock by the river!

    IN-HOME/STEAMY

    Y’all. This A-Frame is going to be INSANE for these in-home sessions! I hand-picked this house knowing that it would be absolutely perfect for photographing. Stay LoKal styled this A-Frame perfectly with the most Scandinavian Modern styled furniture. There’s also a hammock outside and a balcony upstairs which we will totally use! We will wrap up the session with a STEAMY HOT-TUB SESSION (yessssss) and warm up by the campfire under the string-lights!

    tHE PrESEnTAtIOn
    This retreat is geared more towards shooting + creating your dream content. But there is a TON of vital things that I've learned along the way that really pushed my business to a full-time gig. We'll do a fun food themed bar (tacos? pizza? ice cream? Maybe all 3. LOL) + get down to business! I'll walk through a presentation of all my talking points and have some Q&A's at the end.

    Just a few of the topics that we will talk about:

    • Branding your business: How to define your style + find your voice

    • Finding + Booking your “ideal” clients

    • Pricing yourself

    • Prompting, not posing

    • Client interactions

    • Workflow tools: From managing clients, contracts, collecting deposits to editing and amping up your social media + marketing

    • Editing + Delivery process

    • Q & A
