HUSTLE & HEARTH PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP | for photographers

I am so, so, SO beyond excited to finally be sharing with y’all something that has been in the works for about nearly two years. Some of you may have heard whispering that we are going to be launching something new for photographers…. well, the rumors are true, we’re bringing an awesome new photography workshop & retreat to Nashville next year! Woot Woot! To get things kicked off, and honestly because we are just toooo excited to wait until next year & the full retreat, we are hosting a micro workshop this month at Cannery One in Nashville.

Over the years I’ve attended several workshops, retreat, conferences, styled shoots, and so on.  I’ve had some awesome experiences and some…. well, less than awesome ones. Sound a little familiar maybe? With all of those experiences I have brought together my favorite elements from each, combined with my love for mentoring, and a desire to cultivate a welcoming fun community of gal pals & that was how Hustle & Hearth was created. Why Hustle? This photography workshop is designed for the boss babe who is passionate about rockin’ their business. Why Hearth? The mantle is the center of the home, it’s a place of bonding & community. I felt these two words truly embodied the vision I have.

My vision for Hustle & Hearth is to dive deeper, cover more educational content & have hands on learning alongside your speakers.

THE MICRO WORKSHOP –
Now, I know that not everyone can take time away from their families, work, or other commitments to attend a retreat over multiple days. If you can, hooray! We can’t wait to have breakfast and laugh about the latest episode of Grey’s together. But if the full retreat isn’t an option for you, that’s ok! You can still come hang with us! That’s why I created our Micro Workshops, which are essentially a hybrid of a styled shoot and a photography workshop. You get all of the super fun prettiness that you expect from a styled shoot but the super awesome part is that while you are rotating through stations in your small groups there will be educators at several of those stations! That means you will have the opportunity to candidly speak with teachers ask questions in an informal and incredibly approachable way.

THE FULL WORKSHOP & RETREAT –
Pack your bags & get ready for the most awesome gal pal slumber party in the South! If you have been looking for a photography workshop with classroom learning that not only explains a subject matter but also walks you through the steps & allows for you to have time right there at the retreat to implement those steps with the teacher there instead of sending you home with all of this new knowledge and then feeling overwhelmed or wishing you had asked more questions during the lesson. Outside of classroom learning there will be hands on learning during the styled photoshoots. This is a perfect photography workshop if you are looking for a community that’s a little more offbeat, where you can let your quirkiness show & have the girl next to you totally relate and embrace those weird qualities. Plus, at the full retreat you will have time for lifestyle headshots to use throughout your website & social media! With more days that also means more photoshoots – some things to expect will be lifestyle couples sessions, stylized wedding, an intimate elopement, & some more surprises… I mean, c’mon, I can’t share it all with you! Spoilers, sweetie.

 

ps. colored hair is totes optional & definitely not a requirement 🤣

So, What’s your Style? Full Retreat or Micro? Or if you’re awesome-sauce & want to join us for #allthethings, I would love to have you come sit with us!

Come hang & learn alongside myself & Baltimore babe Ashton Kelley Photography. Ashton’s sharing her secret to never skipping a beat when posing by utilizing her Flow Posing. And she’s totally down for a Taylor Swift dance party with you! And I’ll be training on what to look for and how to photograph the details that publications are looking for so you can rock out your editorial submissions in the new year.. annnddd, we’ll probably talk a little Gilmore Girls too!

Are you Ready for It?! *Cue Ashton rockin’ out to Taylor here*

GRAB YOUR SEAT HERE

Come experience our Micro Workshop this month! Check out our vision board below, it’s giving me all the feels and I can’t wait to see all the gorgeous details that our incredible team is designing come together for this soft & romantic design! You will be in small groups of 3-5 photographers, rotating between stations & several models too! Here are a few of our Workshop Sponsors!
