A workshop for like minded creatives

The retreat

Join other creatives at the beautiful Swan House in Atlanta GA  for learning and fun! I had a desire to create workshops that would be different and a fun learning experience for years! Hosting my second annual Retreat is amazing and I couldn't be more excited! Join me and some of the best vendors in our industry on this journey! This will be a two day learning experience, filled with knowledge, and yes beautiful things to photograph. I will spill all I know about this industry, how I have worked to grow a successful six figure business and more. I am known for my posing, attention to detail, and flat lay designs. Being a hybrid film shooter my work is soft and romantic, but with color and authentic moments. I will help others learn about this craft and how to approach it. 
Cost  is $2900 and will include:
Welcome Dinner and Q&A on the 17th
Classroom and Editorial Shoot 
Lunch, Q&A and Farewell Dinner on the 18th
Travel and Lodging-Additional

 Shanell’s retreat was more than I could’ve ever imagined. It was amazing having the opportunity to meet talented photographers from all over. I’ve looked up to Shanell and her work for a while and getting to meet her and learn from her was a dream come true. She wasn’t afraid to share all of her experiences and tips she uses in her business. It was obvious that she enjoys educating and uplifting others in the industry. That’s exactly what I was looking for in a mentor - someone who wasn’t afraid to hold anything back and truly wanted the best for me. It was the perfect retreat to have right before my wedding season began. It really had me starting with a creative mindset and new tricks up my sleeve to help me serve my clients in a better way. If you’re considering investing in your education with Shanell…DON’T HESITATE!

Review from a past attendee 

A luxury styled editorial with beautiful vintage southern touches inspired by the Swan House. The shoot will consist of all the highlight elements of a wedding day. From flay lay details, ceremony setup, couples portraits, and the reception dinner scape. We will have set stations for the most optimal shooting. Collectively, we will photograph together, giving you the chance to see my approach and ask any questions before shooting each set yourself.  Breaking up into small groups you will have time to photograph everything. It is my mission to make sure each and every attendee has a great experience. Walking away feeling creatively full and with images to help build their portfolio!
