A GATHERING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS 
 IN THE LAST BEST PLACE 

Montana is often called “The Last Best Place” and it’s easy to understand why; its unspoiled landscape of majestic mountains, flowing rivers, and that legendary “Big Sky” have long attracted trailblazers, dreamers, and people who march to the beat of their own heart. In this spirit of adventure, we invite you to Montana for a wedding photography workshop unlike any other. In true Montana style, we welcome you to spend 3 days with us surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, during which we will elevate your photography skills, refine your style, take your business and brand to new heights, and build a portfolio of stunning images with Montana as your backdrop. We are thrilled to be partnering with Greenwood Events, who will be joining us as workshop designer and florist. Stacey Foley of Joy Wed, a branding and marketing expert, will also be joining us as a guest teacher.

BOZEMAN, MONTANA

You dream of booking your ideal clients and shooting high-end weddings, but you're struggling to break into that market and network with the vendors you aspire to work with. We will share our story of how we got our foot in the door of the high-end, destination wedding world and how to sustainably build a business that will allow you to consistently attract the right clients for you and book your dream destination weddings.

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If you want to break into the high-end wedding market and book your ideal clients

We have been shooting film for the past 6 years and are now also developing and processing it ourselves. We will teach you how to choose your film stock, how to shoot film in every lighting situation (from harsh daylight to dark interiors), how to meter consistently, and how to communicate with your lab to get the results you want. You don’t have to be a film shooter or own a film camera to attend, but we want to provide a way for you to learn about our process and how we’ve become some of the top film photographers in the Northwest. 

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If you want to learn to shoot film and incorporate it into your workflow

We’ve been able to build a 6-figure wedding photography business in Montana, a place with a 4-month wedding season. We want to share with you the ins and outs of our journey and how we’ve gotten here. It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication to our craft, our clients, our business practices, and our continuing education. We are passionate about sharing the knowledge we’ve gathered so you can build a profitable business.

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

if you want to clarify your
pricing and be highly profitable

We will unravel the mysteries around building a strong brand and how to refine your artistic voice to stand out in a saturated market. We will then apply these principles to all aspects of marketing your brand so you can connect to your dream clients and consistently book your ideal weddings.

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If you want to create a strong brand that helps you stand out from the crowd

One of the most challenging aspects of being a small-business owner in a creative industry is the isolation and the tendency to burn out. Too often you feel all alone with no kindred spirits who understand what you're going through. This workshop will provide an inspiring setting in which to connect with other like-minded creatives, reinvigorate your artistic spirit, and establish an inner circle of friends who will be your biggest resources and champions long after the workshop ends. 

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If you're tired of feeling Burned out and alone

Networking with other industry professionals is one of the most important yet intimidating aspects of owning your own business. We will share how to build lasting, meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with the people you really want to work with. Hint: It's about what you can do for them, not what they can do for you.

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If you don’t know how to network without feeling like a desperate imposter

Often times the difference between a good image and an AMAZING image comes down to the styling. Whether it's a flat-lay image of a wedding invitation, or a captivating portrait of your couple, good styling and artistic direction help elevate your images. We will teach you the principles of good design and composition when styling artistically engaging imagery. We will have a hands-on portion of the workshop for you to master your styling and composition skills with beautifully curated items that will be available to you.

OUR WORKSHOP
IS FOR YOU:

If You want to up-level your artistic and Styling skills

GREENWOOD EVENTS

MEET THE TEAM

Greenwood Events, established in 2003 by Darci Greenwood, is a full service wedding planning, production, and design company. Specializing in weddings all over the Rocky Mountain region and now spreading our wings worldwide, Greenwood Events loves the challenge of new locations and venues and we feel it deeply inspires us and elevates our work each time. Darci, the creative force behind Greenwood Events initially made her way into the wedding world through her boutique-style flower shop. After more than a decade focusing on floral and event design, Darci found herself drawn to full event production and planning. With a background in management of private clubs and hospitality, Darci’s experience working for luxury hotels provides her the knowledge and expertise that creates a strong foundation of success for her clients. Darci draws her inspiration from her love of interiors, architecture, and nature. 

Samantha and Reid are a husband and wife fine art film photography team based in Bozeman, Montana. We began Orange Photographie in 2010 and have since grown it into a thriving, 6-figure business serving clients from all over the world. Consistently published in worldwide publications including Harper's Bazaar, Martha Stewart, and Style Me Pretty, we are passionate about photographing romantic and joyful love stories in unforgettable destinations and preserving cherished memories for generations to come. Our brand is driven by our deep connection to stories: each individual has a different one, and their relationships will always be beautifully unique. Inspired by film photography, traveling, good food, our pup Oliver, and of course, our home in beautiful Montana, we are passionate about making memories with each other and our dearest family and friends. 

Arden has been with Greenwood Events since 2012. Being Darci’s step-daughter, she has grown up in the wedding world, seeing the ins and outs of the business from a young age. She has a vast understanding of all event possibilities, and realizes there is nothing more satisfying than a perfectly executed and beautifully designed wedding. Her strong work ethic and enthusiasm for all things beautiful lend to her keen eye for details and honest interpretations of their client’s vision. Arden’s deep passion and knowledge in food, makes her a key player when planning menu logistics for clients. When Arden isn’t right alongside Darci, you can find her on a ski hill throughout the West, mastering her baking skills, gardening, or planning her next world adventure.

Hosted by Samantha and Reid of Orange Photographie, The Montana Workshop will be a 3-day, all-inclusive workshop at Foster Creek Farm, a luxury wedding venue in Montana's stunning Gallatin Valley. We are thrilled to have Darci and Arden Greenwood of Greenwood Events joining us as guest speakers as well as designing and styling our two wedding shoots. We will also be joined by Stacey Foley of Joy Wed. Stacey will teach you how to create a brand strategy that evokes emotion and connection with your ideal clientele in turn creating more profit for your company from loyal, repeat clients. 

This workshop will provide established photographers and aspiring film-shooters with the opportunity to learn, grow, and create in the legendary Big Sky state. It will be a time to learn new skills, strengthen your business model and marketing, elevate your brand and portfolio, be inspired, and create lasting friendships. We will have classroom time, one-on-one website & portfolio reviews, as well as 3 editorial shoots to fill your portfolio with stunning Montana wedding imagery. We are limiting the number of attendees to 10 to ensure we can give each attendee the time and attention they deserve, both in the classroom and during the shoots. 

September is one of the most beautiful months in Montana, with warm, sunny days and cool, quiet nights under a Big Sky that turns into a starry extravaganza after the sun sets. We will take time to unwind around bonfires, explore the property (it has 360° views of 4 mountain ranges!), and relax with each other after satisfyingly full days.

Most importantly, we want to be fully transparent with you and share everything we've learned throughout the last 9 years in business. We want you to take away practical, step-by-step processes and action plans that you can implement in your business immediately and start seeing growth in both your photography and your business right away. 

Workshop Topics: Attracting and booking your ideal clients, film photography basics, breaking into the high-end wedding market, authentic & effective branding, building a profitable business, social media & marketing strategy, finding a healthy work/life balance, getting published, wedding-day styling, capturing natural & emotion-filled images, networking with vendors, and much more.

Included: Accommodations on site at Foster Creek Farm; all meals; classroom time with Orange Photographie, Greenwood Events, & Stacey Foley; three wedding shoots designed & styled by Greenwood Events with fashion styling by Gabrielle Hurwitz; headshots; portfolio & website review.
