You’re going to hike. Uphill. We’ll put on our hiking boots and head into the heart of Yosemite to learn from some of the industry’s top wedding photographers while stretching ourselves as artists. You’ll learn about the various elements of not just running a successful photography business, but also how to be a healthy, happy, motivated wedding photographer, and how to let your inner creative genius shine.
The workshop is limited to 30 people so we can give each and every one of you the attention and focus that you deserve while building a solid community. Not only that but because the staff of DBMH will be there, alongside the staff of Autocamp Yosemite, you will be taken care of if you need something.
Plus, we’re going to dive into taxes, finances, and all the nitty gritty stuff, too. You’ll come out feeling inspired and prepared to take on your wedding season.
Let’s make loyal “fans” out of our clients. We’re going to discover how to ditch the checklist and create a comfortable environment where moments unfold naturally. I’m going to help you get raw emotion from your couples by gaining their trust. It’s not a list of tricks. You’ll learn not how to copy, but how to let your clients open up with you. I promise it’s going to be awesome, just like you.
Styling - Manda of Mae & Co Creative
I have been designing and styling for over four years and I absolutely adore making clients’ dreams and visions come to life. MAE&CO specializes in intimate weddings and elopements as well as photoshoots and brands. We are insanely passionate about entrepreneurship. And we help creatives through workshops and mentorships find their voice and built a brand that truly represents them (and pays the bills!).
We are so excited to be designing and styling for DBMH Camp and can’t wait to see the magic we all create and capture together! I’ll be teaching about content creation, brand building, and how to style shoots and elopements because while designers and stylists make your life easier, not every couple can hire one.

WHY 5 DAYS?
We don’t think two days is enough to teach you everything. We don’t think a few meals is enough to build lasting relationships. So we said, LET'S DO IT! Let’s create the workshop that will challenge and grow you. Let’s do it in a place that will teach us about public land with people who will guide you, not just lecture, who will share meals with you and care for you. So what are you waiting for?
