Wild Places Workshop :: Asheville

Spring 2023, Dates TBD


What is the Wild Places Workshop?

Do you dream of intimate weddings on mountaintops, or next to waterfalls, or in towering forests? Are you uninspired by price-shopping clients who don’t value you, or feel stuck working with couples who you don’t connect with emotionally? The Wild Places Workshop is the answer. 2 full days, 3 nights, in the mountains of North Carolina, exploring the ins and outs of building your brand to attract your ideal client and booking adventurous elopements and the elusive destination wedding. We’ll explore why we do what we do, finding your voice and passion, and how to translate that passion to your audience, turning them into ideal clients. Through teaching sessions, targeted styled shoots, and community building, I hope you leave this week refreshed, inspired, and ready to take your shooting to the next level.

The Wild Places Workshop is an adventure wedding photography workshop, but it is not about showing you how to run your business just like mine. It’s about helping you find your own passion, style, and voice to vault your business to where you dream it could be. It’s about raising up a generation of wedding photographers who guard their clients emotions and explore ways to help them have as genuine an experience as possible. Who aren’t afraid to think outside the ballroom and capture some of life’s greatest adventures.

We'll spend 2 full days shooting, learning, and growing both as photographers, and as part of a wider community.

Who Is This Workshop For?

This workshop is for photographers with a passion for adventure and the outdoors who want to learn the skills needed to break into and thrive in the adventure wedding photography market. It is designed to be most helpful to fairly established photographers who have been in business for at least a year if not more. We’ll be delving into client experience, branding, and marketing and won’t be spending time on camera function or technical skills. Whether you’re an experienced photographer who is tired of shooting in ballrooms and country clubs or a family or portrait photographer who wants to break into intimate weddings and adventure elopements, we are so excited to guide you on this next step of your photographic journey.
