Adirondak Wedding Workshop - $$

Mary Dougherty

Join Mary Dougherty as she pulls together a wedding weekend with an amazing team of creatives. We want to give an intimate group of photographers the chance to photograph a dream wedding that will elevate their portfolio and not just look like a styled shoot. We will be working with a couple that has chemistry and is comfortable together. We will tell a complete story by documenting more than just a portrait session or ceremony scene. Mary will share how she uses medium format film + digital, works with a small number of couples and books an average of $7k per wedding. Get the tools to do what she does or become equipped to go in your own direction. A diverse group of creatives will be on site to share and learn from. The people I'm looking to bring together are interested not only in their own success, but the success of others.

Wedding Photographers Wellness Retreat - $$

Heather Anderson

We will be gathering in the vineyard-lined hills of Southern California to escape the hustle and shed the layers of stress in our everyday lives. We will bolster our business acumen and restore our creative spirits through intentional breakout sessions and three fully-directed styled shoots. Together, we will set our “out of office” messages and learn how to work wholeheartedly from a place of rest. This retreat will help you get out of that hamster wheel and restore that creative passion inside of you. IN JUST THREE DAYS, YOU WILL LEARN ALL THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR LIFE BACK INTO ALIGNMENT, GET THOSE CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING AGAIN, AND REFINE YOUR FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS. You will leave this retreat with a feeling of complete renewal and will be able to work through your planning and editing processes much faster. Better yet, your couples will pick up on your revived energy and this will translate into more intimate poses and (likely) better product sales.
