DETAILS


This is going to be a jam packed week. But we want you to find time to refresh and reset, too. From morning yoga to campfires in the evenings, we’ll support you as you build meaningful and authentic relationships during the workshop.
Over the course of a week, we will guide you, challenge you, push you to take this experience and apply it to your life and your business. We don’t want you to leave without all the tools you need to develop an authentic voice, develop relationships with your clients, and express yourself creatively.

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.

The Topics

Branding, Marketing, Destination Weddings, Social Media, Workflow and Editing, Pricing, Work and Life Balance, Lighting, Live Shoots, Q&A's, Website Reviews and a lot more...

The Speakers

Benj Haisch

"I’ve been a wedding photographer since 2007 and in that time have photographed hundreds of weddings and elopements. Being a wedding photographer is absolutely an honor. There are generations of relationships and more depth than any one person could experience. We’re going to work on cultivating relationships, leaving a legacy instead of a stream of likes, and learn to create photos that stand the test of time, ones that your couples will continue to share, print, and hang for decades." 

Anni Graham

"I want to travel, I want to shoot elopements, I want to stand out”. This is what every mentee and workshop student tells me. I‘ll to break down what it’s going to take to book weddings in new places and get paid for them. I’ll teach you how to brand yourself and how to market yourself. We’ll go over what makes a beautiful photograph, and how to take photos that are strong, unique, and real… ones that represent you.

Peyton Byford

Something I’m really excited to talk about is standing out in a "saturated" industry. I know that traveling for weddings looks glamorous, but we’re going to be really digging into whether it’s for you, and if it is, how to book them. I truly believe there isn’t just one way to shoot, to edit, and to be successful. Instagram doesn't define success. Loving your work and getting paid to do what you love is what ought to define success.
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.


Janelle Elise

The photography industry can feel isolating and competitive, but this week is going to be about becoming real friends with other photographers, encouraging and empowering each other so we all become better artists and business owners.
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?
