Rêver Workshop: For Wedding Photographers

Thursday, April 25, 2019
11:00 AM - 05:30 PM
Haseltine Estate
1303 S Farm Rd 115, Springfield, MO 65802, USA

The Rêver Workshop for Wedding Photographers is a time for connection, growth, and talking all things photography and business. Join us for a day of discussing branding, social media, rediscovering your passion, and end the afternoon by building a beautiful portfolio with our small group signature styled shoots.

Education + Discussion (and food) Time: We will begin our day gathering at the Haseltine Estate to mingle and get to know one another. We will partake in a delicious lunch provided by Tea Bar & Bites while listening to our guest speakers present on topics such as the power of branding, social media made simple, and the psychology of achieving your best goals.

Hands-on Shooting Time: The second part of this workshop will be a three-hour styled shoot. Attendees will be divided up into small groups and put into rotation so that they can get the most out of their time with the models, as well as styling and shooting the various vignettes.

We'll end the day in the early evening so that all of our attendees can have enough travel time to back it back to their home destinations. All attendees will walk away with new friends, a beautiful portfolio of new work, a set of headshots, and a renewed sense of passion for wedding photography.


  • A delicious catered lunch from Tea Bar & Bites (including desserts and drinks!) and additional refreshments throughout the day
  • Education from industry leaders on branding, social media, photography, business, & more, as well as Q&A time
  • A new set of professional headshots to use on social media or your website
  • Beautifully styled portfolio work of THREE styled shoots at a mere fraction of the price it would cost for a venue, vendors, and flowers
  • Three hours of hands-on, small group shooting and styling time during the styled shoot
  • The opportunity to shoot work produced by highly acclaimed vendors from across the US
  • You'll walk away feeling creatively energized, refueled by the community, and ready to take the next step in your business


Fact: Typically, a fully stylized shoot with professional vendors, a venue, floral installations and bouquets, and designer gowns costs on average between $2,000-4,000.

As a entrepreneur, making investments in styled shoots can often lead to amazing networking opportunities, higher profitability, getting published, and produces an elevated portfolio... But, the hours of planning and execution often exceed 100+ hours.

This is why we want to offer the most exquisite styled shoot to you for a fraction of the price and time it would cost you yourself– so that you can have all of those opportunities without losing more of your time, money, and life.

During the styled shoot, attendees will have the chance to shoot a styled engagement session, bridal session, and wedding session. The styled engagement session will include a real couple, and will take place on the lawn of the estate. The bridal session will include plenty of flowers and a designer gown, and will take place in the Haseltine's sunroom.

The wedding session will include a real bride and groom, a designer dress, bridesmaids and groomsmen, a tablescape, bridal details to photograph, an invitation suite flat lay, cake and cocktails, and more. We will also have a styling station that attendees will use to practice styling with ring boxes, rings, ribbons, styling boards, invite suites, flowers, etc. Expect to walk away with a slew of portfolio-worthy content that you can use to market and promote your business for the rest of the year.
