It's been a dream of mine FOREVER to host a photographer retreat in this beautiful place I call home! I did so much healing living here in Sedona. Not only is this one of the most beautiful places in the whole world, but the energy here is so special and it calls me back time and time again. The moment you walk out onto the rocks and take in the views and feel the pull from mother nature herself, you feel grounded, loved, at peace. I am so excited to share that magic with YOU!
Below you will find the break down for this retreat. Please know that I am so believing in rest and making time for oneself. Outside of opportunities to capture some stunning content, we are going to focus on slowing down and enjoying our time together and exploring all that the land and this area have to offer. Often times, we find ourselves so busy, we forget to stop and recognize all that is happening around us. That will be just as important to me this retreat!
It is my hope that we will all leave feeling so recharged and uplifted and ready to tackle the months ahead!
It's going to be AMAZING!

After a long day of travel, I really want this to be a relaxing evening for all. If the need is to sleep, I will totally understand.
Additionally, I will have 2 vehicles for transportation and you are welcome to use those to get to the grocery store or other places during free time but we will need to coordinate with everyone. If you are a free bird and like to have your own way around, there are rental places in Cottonwood or Sedona you can find decent daily rates at, if you are just needing something locally and are still wanting to take advantage of me transporting you to and from the airport.

Please note that the closest airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor (2 hours south). This will be the meet up location for anyone interested in being picked up.
If you are wanting to arrive or depart outside the planned time, there are car rentals and shuttles that will also get you to the airport.
Weather in Sedona this time of year can be chilly, but I prefer coming during this time, because you avoid the crowds and the heat and have more parts of this beautiful space to yourself.
I will be sending out all of the event details by January 6th, with a packing list, our list of hikes we will be visiting, information on models that will be joining us, etc.
We will be connecting as a group virtually a couple times prior to get better acquainted.
