We are a collective of wedding photographers that are dedicated to learning hard and having fun while we do it. Embark is one part education. One part luxury portfolio building. And one part luxury retreat…..we’re not your average styled shoot!

The week will be hands on photography learning while in class time. No topic is off limits. We will cover everything under the sun (pun intended) to dive into running a more successful and profitable photography business back home. In addition, you’ll have time dedicated to recharging your batteries. Creative business owners work 24/7, we get it.

You CAN make the dream of becoming an international wedding photographer a reality. However, you don’t have to figure it out on your own!

At the Embark Retreat you’ll:

  • Learn from an award-winning international wedding photographer in daily small, hands-on workshops.
  • Leave with an action plan to implement the new knowledge & skills you’ve gained to amplify your business.
  • Join a supportive, collaborative community of like-minded photographers.
  • Above all, perfect your craft and leave with curated images reflective of your particular style. We’ve all heard about those workshops where you get the exact same images as all the other attendees, right? no thanks!– to launch your international wedding portfolio.

The bonus? Doing all that while taking time out a nap in a hammock, grabbing a cocktail poolside, or relaxing and reading a book at our privately rented villa on the Pacific coast of Mexico. In other words, it’s the ultimate refresh for both you and your business.
