The Rêver workshop is a time for connection and growth in creative entrepreneurship. Join us for a day of discussing branding, social media, rediscovering your passion, and end the day elevating your portfolio with our small group signature styled shoots.
A 100-year old restored estate in Springfield, the Haseltine Estate sits on a lush, 10-acre property with a white barn, tall green hedges, and rose bushes. Inside the estate, rooms of bright light and crown molding are the perfect compliment any wedding scene. We will be using every bit of this beauty!
This workshop is part education + discussion and part hands-on learning and shooting. We will begin our day gathering at the Haseltine Estate to mingle and get to know one another. After everyone has arrived, we will partake in a delicious lunch provided by Tea Bar & Bites while listening to our first guest speaker. Don't worry, we'll provide a notebook, pen, and endless coffee!
We'll listen to more of our guest speakers and open up the room for some Q&A and discussion before gearing up for everyone's favorite part of the day– the styled shoot! Attendees will be divided up into small groups and put into rotation so that they can get the most out of their time with the models, as well as styling and shooting the various vignettes. We will take three hours to shoot.
During the styled shoot, attendees will have the chance to shoot a styled engagement session, bridal session, and wedding session. The styled engagement session will include a real couple, and will take place on the lawn of the estate. The bridal session will include plenty of flowers and a designer gown, and will take place in the Haseltine's sunroom.
The wedding session will include a real bride and groom, a designer dress, bridesmaids and groomsmen, a tablescape, bridal details to photograph, an invitation suite flat lay, cake and cocktails, and more! We will also have a styling station that attendees will use to practice styling with ring boxes, rings, ribbons, styling boards, invite suites, flowers, etc!
We'll end the day in the early evening so that all of our attendees can have enough travel time to back it back to their home destinations. All attendees will walk away with new friends, a beautiful portfolio of new work, a set of headshots, and a renewed sense of passion for wedding photography! Interested in learning more?

Fact: Typically, a fully stylized shoot with professional vendors, a venue, floral installations and bouquets, and designer gowns costs on average between $1,000-3,000.
As a entrepreneur, making investments in styled shoots can often lead to higher profitability and getting published... But, the hours of planning and execution often exceed 100+ hours.
This is why we want to offer the most exquisite styled shoot to you for a fraction of the price and time it would cost you yourself– so that you can have all of those opportunities without losing more of your time, money, and life!

The styled shoot portion of the workshop will consist of three different types of shooting opportunities: a styled engagement session, bridal session, and wedding session. Each of these sessions will be styled to look like their own separate shoot, so you can walk away with a lush portfolio of new work. Each session will have various vignettes set up so that attendees can rotate in small groups of two people to optimize their experience and give them time to pose and work with the models without rushing or fighting for the perfect shot.
We will also have a styling station set up where you can use practice your styling skills with an array of styling boards, ring boxes and rings, and more.
