Emma Roberts, Desert Daisy Jewelry

Hi, I'm Heather, a Wedding & Elopement Photographer based in Las Vegas & I love to go on adventures. I’ve participated in a few amazing Styled Shoots with other photogs in the past & thought to myself " I should share this epic experience with as many people as I'm allowed!" So, I put together 2 epic shoots in early February & decided to do it again. But this time, we’re adding education! So you’ll not only add amazing work to your portfolio, but you’ll add value to your business with the knowledge you gain! I can't wait to get to know you & shoot together!

Hi, I'm Heather, a Published Wedding & Elopement Photographer based in Las Vegas & I love to go on adventures. I’ve participated in a few amazing Styled Shoots with other photogs in the past & thought to myself " I should share this epic experience with as many people as I'm allowed!" So, I put together 2 epic shoots in early February & decided to do it again. But this time, we’re adding education!

Hi! I'm Emma, a jewelry designer & stylist. I have styled over 20 collaborative photoshoots, & worked with 30+ photographers on these projects, allowing for me to have a broad perspective on what makes for the perfect setup. Prior to running my own business, I spent years as the Home department manager at Anthropologie, designing their magical rooms to create their signature client experience. I currently design raw crystal jewelry, forming a lifestyle brand that is represented through my unique perspectives in my photoshoots. One thing I have learned through this venture is the importance of being a jack of all trades. With this in mind, I have filled in the roles of wardrobe stylist, hair dresser, makeup artist, prop master & more when needed. 

*Ticket cost includes Food, Lodging, Education & Total Access to 2 unique Styled Shoots.

Janae Dawson, Janae Marie Photography

Hi! I'm Janae, a Published Wedding & Elopement Photographer based in Upland, CA! If you knew me before photography, you would have never associated my name with adventure. I WAS the girly girl, afraid of bugs (still am) & prefer a fancy hotel ( still do ), but my passion for photography has opened my eyes to so many amazing things. Styled shoots are so exciting & such a fun way to express your creativity & collaborate with amazing vendors. I have participated in a lot of them, & have done a few myself. I am beyond exiting to teach along side Heather & Emma!

Guest Educators

Kaila Savarese, Kaila Sarene Photography

Hello! I’m Kaila, an adventure chasing, pup loving, taco eating photographer. I’ve been published all over the US & featured in multiple elopement sites & social platforms. I started traveling in pharmacy school about 6 years ago while doing medical mission work. In the last year I went full time into photography doing what I love! Traveling to places like India, Africa, & Central America, I found that I was so incredibly small, and there was so much more so see (and capture)! Last year I married my best friend, and fell in love with weddings, and this year I’m capturing over 35 love stories. I’m so excited to teach you how to improve bookings & your client experience, as well as sell yourself as an elopement & destination photographer!

Finding Your Style

What's your Style?

Traditional/Classical:
A traditional photographer specializes in posed portraits, even shots you may think of as candid. They capture perfect moments with artistry & dignity. Classical photographers remain “invisible” at the reception to set up their perfect shots. There is no “look at the camera” with either of these photography styles.
 
Photojournalistic:
More recently referred to as Authentic, it’s this photographer’s job to record events, not stage them. This photographer will take the posed group shots, but will also include candid & spontaneous images. This style is emotive & the photographer prefers capturing close-ups, spontaneous reactions, & sensitive impressions of a wedding.

Fine Art:
A Fine Art Photographer rarely takes traditional shots, preferring to find artistic ways to photograph elements, people, & events. The Fine Art photographer is adept at composing photos full of drama & artistic. They will often work in black & white as well as color.

Editorial:
To an Editorial Photographer, every bride is a fashion model. The use of dramatic lighting & staged poses, create high drama imagery meant to evoke emotion. Less common in the wedding industry, this style is gaining ground for it’s magazine like documentation.

Start attracting your ideal client by defining, honing & developing your shooting style.

Over the course of our 3 day/2 night workshop, you'll explore 4 different styles with our guest educators, participate in 2 unique Styled Shoots & develop confidence in your individual style. All while meeting new friends & colleagues.
