We are so excited to announce our 2022 Elopement Photography workshop in Joshua Tree National Park March 27th – 29th
Joshua Tree National Park is a mecca for stunning desert elopements, adventure and fun. In the past we have held our workshops in Sedona, Arizona, Port Angeles, Washington and Moab, Utah. We are excited to bring the Love on Earth Workshop to California this coming March.
Meet the team…..
You know myself (Traci), Malachi and Bill as the faces behind Love on Earth workshop. We are dedicated to educating elopement photographers in helping them rank on Google, learn LNT, build portfolios that speak to their brand, build community and more! We are excited to be back here with you all in growth, creative and connection! This year we also decided to bring in another educator, hand selected based on authenticity, her business and her knowledge in psychology!!
Aimée is an elopement photographer based out of Phoenix- but splits her time between Arizona and Utah (among other amazing places in the west!) She moved from Chicago to AZ in 2018 after pining for the desert for several years. In the fall of 2019 she dove into her photography business with elopements as her niche- and has never looked back. Before Aimée was an elopement photographer she was a therapist for 10 years. The skills she learned as a therapist have been key in being a successful business owner and keeping (and prioritizing!) a healthy mindset. She will be teaching:
– Tips to help manage the stress of busy season and the lull of a booking drought
– Strategies to stop the comparison doom
-Steps to set boundaries with your clients and yourselves
– How to move away from burnout and towards the illusive work/life balance
We will be staying in an awesome Airbnb perfect for learning and relaxation. Per all of our workshops your stay, meals, styled shoots and education are included in the tickets. For this workshop we will be having 3 live classes with lots of open time for Q + A with each instructor, head shots of attendees, 2-3 adventure based styled shoots that tell a story you can use for blogging, social media, branding and more. Our shoots in the past have included off roading, picnics, climbing, bouldering, starry nights, etc. We like to keep our workshops intimate so everyone gets time one on one with the couples and instructors. We will have 1 couples/team ticket available for a room with a King size bed that allows two guests in on this ticket. We have 6 individual tickets with the rest of the rooms being queen or bunk beds.
We will also be giving a way one mentor ship via a drawing at the end of the workshop! For any past attendees that also attend this workshop we will be giving a way a wedding dress for a styled shoot of their very own!
The Styled shoots!
There will be three styled shoots with three different couples during the workshop.
- The first styled shoot will consist of a couple rock climbing in wedding attire followed by portraits. You will not need to rock climb to photograph this.
- The second styled shoot will include a ceremony, sunset portraits ending the evening with Milky Way photos and pizza by the fire at the Airbnb!
- The last styled shoot will be at sunrise and include an off road adventure with bikes. Each attendee will get one on one time posing the couples and documenting the adventure!
Each styled shoot will have time for group photographing and individual time with the couples. We work hard to bring diversity into our styled shoots!
We can not wait to share more information about this workshop soon and see you soon! If you have never been to Joshua Tree here are some things to know!
The closest airports are: Palm Springs, Phoenix, LA or San Diego. You will need to rent a car if you are flying in to get to Joshua Tree.
While March is a great time of year in the desert with beautiful days and slightly chilly nights it is still the desert, so be sure you are drinking lots of water and bring sunscreen/a sun hat with you.
We recommend bringing a National Parks pass if you have one since we will be in and out of the park a lot. Joshua Trees a scared and it is illegal to climb them or disrupt them in any way so please keep that in mind while visiting the park with us!
