Oahu, Hawaii

LFP Workshop Hawaii Graphic

Friends, we are SO excited to be hosting our next all-inclusive photography workshop on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii! When refining what we wanted our workshop experiences to be like, we knew a few things:

  1. We wanted this series of workshops to be focused on building your dream business, life and clientele.
  2. The workshop should be fluid, with opportunities for growth, questions, and deeper conversation throughout the few days as we all stay in one house together
  3. We wanted to bring in expert guest speakers with such passion and precision in what they do that they’ll inspire you to grow in new ways
  4. Our incredible creative team will once again bring beautiful shoots to life, and we’ll be using the incredible backdrop of Hawaii!

We’re renting an incredible beachfront house on the stunning North Shore of Oahu where we’ll stay together for 2.5 days. All meals and lodging are included as we LOVE how it builds community to stay together. There will be two gorgeous styled shoots on the beaches + mountains of Hawaii (that you WILL be able to submit for publications for the first time!), a beautifully styled welcome dinner, florals and design by the incredible Oleander Florals & Design and Sandpiper & Co., discounted film processing through Photovision, two guest speakers: branding specialist Jen Olmstead of Tonic Site Shop and Style Me Pretty Editor Elizabeth Greene, and more amazing sponsors! Tim & I have built our business over the past six years to be both highly profitable and one that brings us and our clients joy! We both have business backgrounds and are so passionate about helping photographers and artists tap into the simple principles  of connecting to your dream clients. We can’t WAIT to meet you, share meals together,  talk over all things business and photography, and shoot together on the stunning island of Oahu!

Why Hawaii?

To put it simply, Hawaii is incredible. You’ll be refreshed and inspired soaking in the warm air that literally smells like pineapples and flora, viewing countless rainbows, waterfalls and crystal clear waters, experiencing the famous North Shore surf culture and gaining amazing destination portfolio images. Plus, flights from most major US cities in the winter months are incredibly affordable (around $600-650 roundtrip, nonstop!). Just get yourself there, and we’ll take care of the rest!

Jericho Mountain Orchards Wedding - NJ Film Wedding Photographer_0163 Tori + Mike’s wedding was surely one of the hottest days of the entire year, but it was SO BEAUTIFUL, friends! We loved watching how close this beautiful couple was with their families – there was definitely such a sweet bond and the emotions were running high all day! Jericho Mountain Orchards is such a gorgeous venue – it’s full of historic old barns, landscaped gardens and flowers everywhere. Their sweet pup Maddie joined for a few photos, too! Enjoy a few of our favorites telling the story of Tori + Mike’s wedding day – and be on the lookout for their honeymoon shoot coming soon from when we met up in beautiful Positano, Italy the week after the wedding! <3  Jericho Mountain Orchards Wedding - NJ Film Wedding Photographer_0010
