photography retreat in Jackson Hole

Monday, July 6, 2015

After a busy spring of shooting wedding, I co-hosted a photography retreat for 14 wedding photographers + 1 editor in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We had an amazing time sharing, discussing, bonding, hiking, eating, drinking, fishing and laughing together. I flew home very focused and refreshed. I only took one camera with me: my 1959 Rolleiflex camera (which I was in good company using!), with Fuji (a sponsor) + Kodak (my regular) film, developed by my lab Fast Foto and Digital, a sponsor of the retreat.

Our welcome bag (pictured at the bottom) contained goodies from XOWYO Paper, Kate's Real Food, Jackson Hole Winery, Stio Mountain, Artifact Uprising, Trilipiderm, ButterCreamDC, Dubs, Fuji Film and Appointed. Continue on for details of our trip...

Our Itinerary

Day 1
Arrived in Jackson Hole and we were welcomed with a cocktail reception at Hotel Jackson, a new boutique hotel, with flowers by Lily and Company. My favorite wedding blog Snippet and Ink surprised us with little giveaways. We ate late night burgers at Liberty Burger and stayed in town at the Alpine House

Day 2
Delicious breakfast at Alpine House, did yoga at Jackson Hole Yoga and tried Healthy Being Juice.

We headed up to Turpin Meadow Ranch and hiked to lunch on a mountain. Our lunch by Turpin, was outfitted by the Scout Guide JH and Hunter Gatherer JH. After lunch we spent the afternoon with discussions on wedding photography and personal goal building. Priscilla Foster created personalized notebooks for us to jot our ideas inside. After the hike, we loved refreshing in the the outdoor shower at Turpin.

We enjoyed evening cocktails + dinner on porch of ranch was gorgeously executed by the Scout Guide JH, Jackson Hole Winery, PTO Bluegrass, Montana Party Rentals, Canvas Unlimited, Padgett Hoke, Made Jackson Hole, XOWYO Paper, flowers by Fleur De Events and catered by Genevieve Catering.

Day 3
We spent the day fly fishing and horseback riding at Turpin, with their patient staff taking care of us every step of the way. We had a lovely lunch in the main lodge and relaxed in the afternoon, some of us brave enough to jump into the swimming hole.

That evening we had an epic final dinner in the pasture with the Grand Tetons as our backdrop. We took photos of all the details and portraits of each other in gorgeous light as the sun set. Thank you to Priscilla Foster for a lovely Pendleton album, Rocky Mountain Bride, Magnolia Ranch for creating the most beautiful tabletop and decor, Vrai and Oro, Montana Party Rentals, Canvas Unlimited, Huger Embroidery for custom napkins with our initials, to Wyoming Whiskey for bringing some fun and to Turpin Meadow Ranch, whose chef created the most amazing meal for us photographers who are usually shooting tables like this, not sitting at them. We ate s'mores around the bonfire and tucked into our cabins. I was sad to say goodbye, but left uplifted, inspired and with lots of new friends and memories.

England in November

Friday, November 8, 2013

Last November, Victoria Magazine sent me to England to photograph a story for their 2013 British issue. After a stay at the welcoming and posh The Stafford London, I was off to Devon, a two hour train ride west. If you've ever heard of the "moors" of England (and most likely stories of people getting lost on them), this is where they are. The famous Sherlock Holmes mystery The Hound of Baskervilles was set here and recently the Steven Speilberg film War Horse was filmed near Dartmoor National Park in Devon. My stay at The Arundell Arms Hotel was fantastic and I loved the fly fishing trip we took from the inn. I have to say that I wasn't expecting any exciting meals after previous trips to England, but the restaurant at Arundell Arms was amazing. They served mostly locally gathered and grown ingredients in their dishes, including venison burger. My next stay was at Bovey Castle, an unbelievable property that has been modernized underneath its charming, historic facade.

I enjoyed little day trips to local village markets and one of my favorite stops was a small hike to a tiny church in a cliff. The wind was blowing hard making the temperatures near freezing, but when I stepped inside it was quiet and quaint and enchanting. I love discovering hidden places like that when I travel! I bought some locally made yarn at the Tavistock Pannier Market and drank a few pints at a few local pubs. I highly recommend a trip to was truly a unique experience with beautiful scenery, local legends, delicious meals and welcoming people. If you go in November, be sure to bring your wellies!

These are the moors...

At Bovey Castle, we learned how to make cider (pictured below) and sloe gin--a berry based gin that goes fantastic mixed with champagne.

Afternoon tea at the The Stafford was perfect.

Have you ever been to the scarf room at Liberty of London? There are no words to the fabulousness of what is for sale there.

Be sure to check out Victoria Magazine's 2013 British Issue to see this stories and lots more!

details on the Chesapeake

Sunday, September 1, 2013

I photographed these images for Victoria Magazine's summer story on the Chesapeake. The Eastern Shore of Maryland is only about an hour and half drive from Washington, DC and makes for a beautiful day on the water, eating crabs and moseying around the maritime museum and surrounding docks.

{ One of my favorite places is the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels where I've photographed many weddings over the years.}
