Hey Y'all I'm Emily

- I am a big fan of a man named Jesus, the one who saved us all and set the example for how to walk on this earth together.

- I've become a creative entrepreneur since my world got rocked in 2016 after a car accident that completely changed the trajectory of my life plans and left me with a TBI.

- I am a photographer and mentor for some of the most inspiring humans around. 

- I hit six figures in my first full time year of business, also happened to be during a pandemic, and want to teach other photographers how to do the same. P.S. I was 22 so it's possible for any age!

A little intro to your educator + Founder

I'VE ALSO HAD NUMEROUS PHOTOGRAPHERS ASk ME TO HOST A RETREAT OF MY OWN AND I'VE FELT CONVICTED TO DO SO FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. So happy to announce that it's finally here!

- I grew up playing sports, so leadership has always been in my blood. I love getting to grow teams and connect with people. 
- There is nothing better than seeing your students get immediate results after workshops or mentorships when they put new tools / strategies into play.
- I have a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies of Business and Communication and want to use my knowledge to help grow other people's businesses.
- I have taught at Worthy Workshop, Live Rooted Workshop, and led over 20 shootouts with The Shootout Society. Every time I leave, I cry with the most full heart knowing each photographer is one step closer to their dream life. 

Why I want to be your educator:

It's going to change lives. It's going to change hearts. It's going to build a community of like minded women AND men pursuing service and Christ. It's going to open our eyes up to more than what's in our tunnel view, but to the world happening around us. It's going to be catered to YOU! 
The team will look different each time, but these two on your left will be there every time. Emily as your education and visionary, and Jessica as the BTS, assistant, coordinator and point of contact.
Every retreat will be 5 days, and 4 nights, full of education, styled shoots focused on authentic story telling, and one of the days we will be in the community learning about our surroundings and how we can help leave a positive impact. $5000 will be donated to the non-profit, church, organization, etc. we partner with for each retreat. 

It's going to be different

The very first one day workshop I did CHANGED THE GAME FOR ME. & I know it can do the same for you.
These are wonderful for photographers wanting to get their feet wet but maybe aren't able to afford a full retreat yet. Or they want to get content in this specific place that doesn't JUST look like a styled shoot. Or you want to build a community and your portfolio. There will be in person learning, coffee, lunch, dinner and a full styled bridal shoot you can market towards an elopement couple. These will take place in EPIC adventurous locations. My goal is to get your brains thinking before you shoot.  To connect you with the community of photographers + couples BEFORE you shoot with INTENTION. I will show you HOW to shoot all parts of a day and create spaces for every person to have 1:1 time with the couple. 

It's more than a content day or styled shoot

Meet jess

Our Virtual Assistant leading up to retreats, one day workshops, and on site Personal Assistance for retreats! 

Often times you will be chatting with her online for timelines, schedules, and details. Jess is the back end of operations for retreats and workshops so Emily can focus on teaching, being a visionary for each event, pour herself into all the students, and focus on the education side in the moment.

She also whips up a mad margarita, so you'll see her behind the bar and in the kitchen making sure everyone stays fed and happy throughout each event! Basically, she is our unicorn when it comes to tackling logistics and making sure everyone knows where to be and when.

God. 
In March of 2019, I miraculously made it on a study abroad trip to the Dominican Republic. On the plane ride there I prayed that God would reveal WHY He lined everything up for me to go.
I was sitting on a yacht, in awe of this experience, when I looked over to my left and saw a building that was run down, unfinished, and lost in a very touristy location. It didn't fit in, instead it stood out, but was so easily lost because nobody wanted to pay attention to it. In that exact moment I knew what He was showing me. He showed me that even in the beautiful places we get to go to as photographers, we have to also look for those broken spaces and give back.
 My world changed when we built a house for a disabled man and gave him security.
My world changed when we were able to utilize our gifts to help give a Haitian community healthcare.
My world changed in 10 days and humbled me when I realized I was so privileged and could use that recognition to help lift other communities up, ESPECIALLY in the places I get to see with my job.
God showed me that hosting retreats can do that.
Bringing people together with one mission in mind can do that.
Teaching other photographers how to build their business and open their eyes to what is going on around us  can do that.
Together we can all help make the world a better place. God revealed that a servant heart is more than just serving our own. clients, but local communities too.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ONE DAY WORKSHOP AND A RETREAT?

RETREATS:
5 days and 4 nights

ONE DAY WORKSHOPS:
1 day




How many days/Nights will we be there?

All across the world. We will always be in the desert, on a beach, or in the mountains. 

WHERE WILL IT TAKE PLACE?

You are responsible for your own flights. The retreats will have a shuttle to take you to and from the airport and then to any shoots / working in the community when we are together. 
The one day workshops do not provide transportation. We highly recommend carpooling with the group who you will be connected with upon purchasing a ticket. 

IS TRAVEL INCLUDED?

Photographers, both women AND men of all levels, especially ones who want to break into the destination market. All shoots are designed for wedding and couple content. We believe there is always something to learn, even if you have been in the industry for a while or if you started yesterday. Investing in education and retreats always pays itself off if you implement the strategies taught. 

WHO IS IT FOR?

A packing list will be provided for retreats. We advise bringing 2 camera bodies and two lenses or a zoom lens. A laptop to take notes, but we will also provide workbooks. 

WHAT DO WE BRING?

Retreats will have 4+ shoots
One day workshops will have 1 fully styled elopement shoot

HOW MANY SHOOTS WILL THERE BE?

Retreats: 8-14
One Day Workshops: 8-10

• HOW MANY ATTENDEES WILL BE THERE?

Yes! Retreats will have more 1:1 time because we will be together longer and 2 days have carved in sit down time with each student. 
One day workshops will be more in the moment, and on the fly while shooting, or during breaks.

WILL I GET 1:1 HELP?

It will be catered towards each group. We will send out a questionnaire before each event to see what topic the group would like to learn most. 
TOPICS:
Diving into your WHY + branding
Social Media Marketing (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest)

WHAT ARE WE LEARNING?

We will base this off of each location. Attendees will need proof of vaccination in some countries, and others will not. Our goal is to make it a safe and comfortable space for all parties. High traffic touch spaces will frequently be wiped down and hand sanitizer will be available.

• WHAT SAFETY PROCEDURES ARE IN PLACE FOR COVID-19?

You can purchase in full or select an installment plan that is split into 4 bi-weekly payments to your credit or debit card.

ARE THERE PAYMENT PLANS?

All tickets are non-refundable but are transferable. Please contact us if this needs to take place. There are only 8-14 spots available and they will be given out on a first come first serve basis. Our waitlist will have access to tickets 24 hours before the public.
