Unlocking the Unconventional: A Wild Zion Workshop Experience for Elopement Photographers

Adventure-Based Learning: Nov 3rd – Nov 5th, 2023

What if we told you your next level-up isn’t found in a stale conference room, but under the boundless skies of Zion? This fall, we’re ditching the conventional for the wild and the extraordinary. Here’s your exclusive invite to Elevated Elopements’ intimate, 3-day workshop in one of America’s most dreamy destinations—Zion and Southern Utah.

Who Is This For?

You’re an elopement photographer craving adventure, keen to shoot in untamed landscapes, and hungry for an untraditional twist in your portfolio. If “romantic,” “wild,” and “adventurous” are words you want associated with your brand, this workshop is for you.

Day 1: Ignite the Fire (Nov 3rd)

Kick off with a meet-and-greet and a fireside chat. We’re talking unfiltered Q+A on all things elopement photography and business. The vibe is casual, and the knowledge is red hot.

Day 2: Shooting in the Wild (Nov 5th)

Capture a full elopement experience with styled shoots at sunrise and sunset. Imagine this—learning how to shoot video while bathed in the romantic hues of Zion’s horizon. You’ll leave with content that’ll make couples swoon for a full-day elopement package, potentially elevating your packages to the 5-figure mark.

Day 3: The Business Behind the Lens (Nov 4th)

Your photography is only half the equation. We dive into client experience, branding, and business workflow. Plus, we’ll map out how to turn your dreamy snaps into content that converts to bookings. It’s a full-on session on sustainable business strategies to keep your bookings rolling.

Bonus: Adventure “Headshots”

Get adventurous headshots that breathe life into your ‘About’ page and Instagram. Let’s face it; your brand is as wild and free as you are, and your headshots should scream the same.

Your Investment

  • 3-Day Retreat: $2222
  • 1-Day Pass: $999

Exact locations? We’re keeping it mysterious for now, but don’t worry, Southern Utah won’t disappoint.
