FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS of
Hands on training by Anni Graham and design and styling by Mae&Co Creative
This experience will be unlike any other workshop you’ve attended.
We are giving you three full days to mix and match as you see fit or bundle together to save a little while also getting the most education and content.
We are slowing down. We are focusing on the entire story. We are not posing and we are not giving you 30 seconds of shoot time. All three days in this series are built around taking your photography to a new level.
With unique and intentional content, hands on trainings, live demo's and a full day dedicated to post production and editing – we are giving you a unique workshop experience unlike any other out there.
Slowing down and focusing on storytelling with extended shooting times,
in-depth training and live demo's with Anni Graham
Open discussion and q&a sessions where we can dive deeper into what drives you and your passions as well as how to convey that and serve your clients better
Expertly curated content that focuses on high-end elopements and authentic moments with your couples
A brand new editing portion that will take your post production to a new level and help you deliver a full story, not just photos
These will be three days, sold separately but meant to compliment each other. We will be spending multiple hours on each shoot diving into what it really means to tell a story with your lens and how to feel comfortable with the rawness in real life.
After two full days of collecting content, we will spend a full day together editing the shoots we have just captured.
We highly recommend only signing up for the Editing Day if you are also signed up for at least one of the content days to create a holistic experience and get the most out of your education
Location & Venue
Our workshop will be hosted at a beautiful private residence on the Mendocino Coast in California.
With multiple unique shooting locations on the property from a natural greenhouse to a luxury cabin with unobstructed 360 degree views of the alder forest, this location is remote and peaceful and will provide endless opportunities for intentional and incredible photos.
When you are not shooting, you are welcome to go on a walk, sit in the hot tub, eat and drink or just sit with our community and talk about your experiences from the year.
Mendocino is about 3 hours North of San Francisco and we recommend flying into San Francisco and then renting a car and staying in Fort Bragg area.
4 shoots, hands on training, an in-depth editing day and countless discussions.
Lunch and dinners are included as well as snacks throughout each day
Lodging is not provided but there are many hotels and airbnb's within close proximity to the property
There is no parking on the property so we highly encourage our attendees to connect and share Uber's when possible
We will be creating a private group chat for all attendees to coordinate travel and lodging if desired
Our workshop is limited to 20 attendees per day. We are dedicating multiple hours to each shoot in order to give our students plenty of time to really live in the moment and capture content they are proud of.
Our first day will be spent on two lifestyle shoots, one in the morning and one in the evening. One inside and one outside. We will push you out of your comfort zone and force your creativity to take a deep breath and come back to life.
Our second day will be spent on a three part bridal shoot. To tell an entire story, we will start with getting ready photos in the morning, detail photos in the afternoon and an elopement shoot in the evening.
Our third day will be spent editing the photos collected over the last two days. We will focus on composition, lighting, tones and cropping. Anni Graham will be personally teaching her post production process and giving you a sneak peek into an upcoming course we will be releasing in 2022, all about the editing process.
Our workshop is based on connection and quality content. We want you to grow into the best photographer you can be in order to serve your clients in a meaningful way.
Planner, Designer and Stylist
I’m Manda, co-owner of Immersed Education and owner of Mae&Co Creative. I have been planning anything and everything as far back as I can remember. Everything from travel itineraries to workout plans to luxury weddings and adventure elopements.
Traveling, teaching and creating are my greatest passions and when those passions are brought together- magic is inevitable. Immersed Education is like nothing else for me. Working alongside Anni, who, without a doubt, is one of the most talented photographers and best humans of all time, as well as getting to travel the world with a community of adventure seekers and magic creators is an absolute dream come true.
Educator & instructor
I’m Anni, co-owner of Immersed Education and full-time destination and adventure elopement photographer. Whether it’s a multi-day trek out into the epic, Patagonian wilderness, or a sensorially stimulating, cultural deep-dive into the colorful streets of Southeast Asia, my life’s passion has been to provide timeless photos of unforgettable experiences for couples all around the world.
For me, Immersed Education is so much more than a business, it’s an expression and distillation of everything I’ve learned and loved about photography, travel, human connection, and conscientious entrepreneurialism over the course of my career. I got to where I am by completely immersing myself into my craft. I want to help you get there too.
Reviews & Testimonials
The composition and storytelling courses have truly changed my outlook on my work in such a positive way.
Thank you for creating this education that I truly feel will change my work and my business in incredible ways!
Anni! I’m watching your storytelling course and I’ve never resonated with anything so much!
Everything from how you speak about marriage, to the need for quiet space to connect, to intentionally leaving time during a shoot for “breaks”… I feel like I’m watching myself through another person.
It’s so inspiring to watch how you pivoted your entire business around self-awareness, and how you’ve allowed your own life experiences to inspire your process.
I can’t say enough how much I love this course, and how desperately its needed by every wedding or couple photographer. Thank you!
I was so excited for Immersed Education to be released, and I immediately purchased both courses. I’ve been so inspired by these courses, and I’m setting up some personal shoots to begin practicing everything I’ve learned.
I wanted to thank you for creating such amazing courses. I can’t wait to get out and shoot with these comp tips in mind soon, and also implement the storytelling techniques. After watching the storytelling course I’m realizing this is what truly inspires and fulfills me – meeting couples where they are and just documenting what is important to them.
