All the Pretty Places


The Retreat

In 2011, travel changed my life.  I was two years into my business, burnt out, exhausted and ready to quit until a trip to Paris gave me new inspiration to keep on going.  Now it's 11 years later and once again travel saved me.  I want you to experience this too.

My retreats are NOT like your typical wedding workshop.  There is no classroom time, special speakers, or a full wedding styled shoot. (but don't worry, we will be shooting beautiful people in Epic locations.

But what I do offer is a small group setting (only 6-8 attendees) for connecting, special experiences, secret tours, good food, luxury accommodations, gifts, 3 beautiful Editorial and Couple shoots to build your international portfolio and so many other surprises that await you...



My Friend,  You are in the right place. These retreats are just for you.

Longing for connections, pretty places, inspiration, building your international portfolio and rest?

My super power is bringing people together, hospitality and gifting.  Let me introduce you to my favorite pretty places in Europe.

And don't fear, we offer a low retainer fee to hold your spot with monthly payment plans.  It's an investment, but it's also a tax write-off too!

INTRODUCING OUR EVENTS FOR 2022.

JOIN US IN PARIS, THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE, PROVENCE, SCOTLAND, and MOROCCO. 

I would love for you to join me

These retreats are not necessarily all wedding related.  Our shoots are designed to be both bridal and editorial and one of the shoots will always include a couple.

Here are some recent mood boards for our past or upcoming retreats.  Each retreat will be styled differently so you can attend more than one if you want to!  No repeats here!

And of course we cannot do a retreat without having beautiful portfolio shoots that are both inspirational and magazine worthy.

Each retreat will have 3 different shoots.  All styled by Amy Louise Hatch, who is based outside of London, England.

How about a Paris Penthouse Apartment with a balcony view of the Eiffel Tower or a chateau or country estate home?  I spend the majority of our budget on our accommodations.  I promise, you will be very comfortable!

Luxury accommodations

You only have to get yourself to our main location.  We will have the rest all planned out for you!  This is a retreat and we take care of all the details!  We are even happy to help you plan your trip over!

Most meals, tours and transportation during the workshop.

Since this is not a "teaching" type of workshop (although you are free to pick my brain anytime) I want to offer you my online courses to help you in your business for absolutely free!  These alone are worth the price of the workshop! You will receive these courses once the workshop is completed.

Access to any of my current courses!

Oh and did I say shopping????

So let's do a little review...

My journey started in 2009.  I've traveled the world shooting weddings & teaching workshops. I've been an educator in the photography industry. I've had celebrity clients and have been published worldwide in publications and blogs.  My life was full but I found myself in a constant state of burnout and stress. Then 2020 happened.  I've now realized in the last two years that it's time for change. I also learned  that I'm so much more than my accomplishments and I'm still valuable even if I step down from weddings.

My new love finds me still traveling the world, but taking you with me.  My images are licensed and featured in major stores, magazines and books. I own a print and product shop, I'm a future author and my mission is helping you create beauty, see the world and be inspired again.

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
– Ibn Battuta

Is travel included in the price?

Yes and No.  Travel during the workshop is included but you are required to get yourself to and from our main location.  But don't fear.  We will help you out with this and you will be placed in a FB group with other attendees so you can maybe even travel together!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the payment plan work?

When you sign up, you are required to pay $1500 down to hold your place.  After you register, we will send you a contract and a covid waiver. The remaining balance will be divided up into monthly payments with the last payment being due 60 days before the workshop.

Can I get a refund if I change my mind?

How many attendees do you allow at your workshops? And will I have to share a room.

What are your Covid Policies?

No refunds but transfers are available.  You can transfer what you have paid to another workshop or you can sell your spot.  If for some reason the workshop cannot be held, it will be rescheduled to another date.

I keep my groups small, only 6-8 attendees. There is chance that you will have to share a room or sometimes, even a bed (but we try really hard for that not to happen).  You can request your own room but it will be an additional fee, if available.

As of this moment, you are required to be vaccinated and some countries require the booster shot so please do not sign up if you do not meet these qualifications.
Things can change rapidly but we continue to stay informed and we have friends in Paris who keep us updated.
If a workshop needs to be rescheduled due to Covid, no refunds will be given but you can always use what you have paid toward any future workshops.
I STRONGLY recommend travel insurance to protect you just in case.
I have traveled to Europe several times during the Pandemic and I feel perfectly safe.
