Raw + Real is a workshop for the humans that have no idea what they're doing, but they're doing it. We're here for the raw and real. No bullshit, no gimmicks, no judgements.
We, more than anything, just want everyone to feel comfortable being vulnerable. We will be doing talks + Q&As but we want this to be more of a hangout rather than for you to feel like you're in a classroom.
We can't wait to spend a few days adventuring and making some freakin’ magic with you all!
Where: Pacific City, Oregon
When: April 5th-7th
Workshop Creators + Speakers

Fakin' it till I make it in this industry since 2011. Travel + Photography is a huge part of who I am. I've never been a walker of the well beaten path. I hope to spend the rest of my life en route to everywhere I've never been, stepping outside every single box I was ever told to sit within and falling in love with as many people and places as I possibly can.
I’ve been a photographer for about five years now. If you told me three years ago that I’d be a wedding photographer, I would have laughed at you. But I seriously love it. Photographing couples in love is what sets my soul on fire. It’s such a rewarding and humbling experience having the opportunity to capture you and your person on your biggest day.
Connecting well with people is an understatement- much like my dog, I will assume I am new best friends with anyone I meet. Pretty much, I’m an open book and will literally tell you anything you would like to know.
