This post and idea has been months in the making, but hitting publish on this will be scary and thrilling all at the same time. On September 22nd-24th, 2016, we invite you to come to The Michelle & Meghan Retreat in Island Park!
Meghan and I have each spent thousands of dollars investing in our education to grow our businesses and in doing so, we have found techniques, systems, and tricks to make our businesses work for us and our lives. Meghan is a wife and a mother to two little boys. She is busy to say the least! I’m a wife, photographer, videographer, and the owner of The Idaho Bride. We’ve both had to learn to make things work in our businesses to give us the time we need to live outside of our businesses and that hasn’t always been easy. We have REAL personal examples and stories to share with you about how our businesses have affected our lives in negative ways and how we’ve found ways to change those things.
We don’t claim to have all the answers or secrets, but we do promise to care about where you are in not only your business but your life. We don’t want you to come to this retreat and only grow as a photographer but as a person. We want to help you see how you can run your business in a more efficient way to spend more time helping it to grow, with loved ones, and giving yourself time to be you!
As Meghan and I chatted over the last few months about this retreat, one main idea has always rang true to what we want this to be for all attendees- This retreat will be a safe harbor of learning, growing, inspiration, and a rekindling of the fire to why you love this. This retreat will be an open, real, and honest place for you to understand and know that you are NOT alone in your struggles and heartaches. In order to make that happen, we will all be staying at a big cabin in Island Park to be able to stay up late and really be there for each other.
The topics we will covering here will be everything from shooting, reception lighting, posing, branding, systems, editing, workflows, social media and everything in between! We will also be having a styled shoot by the cabin on the 23rd where you will have time to shoot a table setting, details, and a bride and groom. It will also be an option to have new headshots taken by us!
