FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS of
Hands on training by Anni Graham and Benj Haisch, design and styling by Mae&Co Creative
This experience will be unlike any other content day you have attended.
We are slowing down. We are focusing on the story, real moments, the beauty of film. We don't just want a shooting frenzy for 30 seconds where you have to be aggressive and elbow your way to get the shot. We have over 6+ hours planned of shooting content, we will break you into small, intimate groups, we will give you time, direction, and variety.
You will walk away with a whole story, inspired by new creative techniques, and new rolls of film to incorporate into your portfolio.
Slowing down and focusing on storytelling and film with extended shooting times, live demo's, and access to Anni & Benj throughout the entire shoot day
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
Tastefully curated content that focuses on high-end elopements and authentic moments with your couples
Casual and elopement styled couples in multiple shooting locations including inside & outside the cabin, along the river, and sunset on the Oregon Coast.
We understand the value of content days, but we also want to incorporate what we love about IMMERSED workshops into this experience. We want intentionality in the shoots, we want to stay away from cheesy, unrealistic posing, we want to give you access to instructors at all times. We want to slow down and tell the full story. We want you to walk away inspired, and your memory cards full of content that will last you for years.
Location & Venue
Our workshop will be hosted at a beautiful cabin on the Wilson River near the iconic Oregon Coast.
There will be multiple unique shooting locations on the property from the lush river bank to the minimalist, neutral interiors of the cabin, as well as a sunset session on the Oregon Coast.
When you are not shooting, you are welcome to go on a walk, sit by the river, chat with Anni or Benj, or bring your computer and edit your photos.
Tillamook is about 1.5hrs from Portland, Oregon.
2 hrs of training from Anni & Benj, 2 styled shoots, 2 locations, 6+ hrs of hands on shooting
Lunch and dinner is included as well as snacks throughout the day
Lodging is not provided but there are many hotels and airbnb's nearby
We will be creating a private group chat for all attendees to coordinate travel and lodging if desired
Our workshop is limited to 25 attendees. We will start the day with a live training from Anni Graham teaching the art of storytelling, capturing emotion and getting the most out of a styled shoot. We will also learn the basics of film, how it transforms your work and your client experience with Benj Haisch. We will then spend the next 6+ hrs shooting content, having discussions, and enjoying the Oregon Coast.
We will have two shoots, one casual and one elopement styled. We will be shooting inside and outside the cabin, along the river and end the day on the beach on the Oregon Coast. We will push you out of your comfort zone and force your creativity to take a deep breath and come back to life.
The shoots will be styled by the one and only Mae&Co and will be the full story of a day to use in your portfolio.
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.
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.
Educator & Instructor
I’m a big fan of morning walks for coffee with my family, the great outdoors, hiking, good music, sunny days, last minute trips, and apple products. I love Jesus, my wife, my son Oslo, film cameras, teaching, playing music, traveling, experiencing new cultures, my family, and helping others.
There are generations of relationships and more depth than any one person could experience. The longer I’ve lived this life, the more I understand the importance of these relationships in my own life and the more I’m honored to document them in the lives of others. I love taking a beautiful, romantic photo that will look amazing on your wall, but I’m much more concerned with the candid photographs that will mean even more in 20 years than they do today.
Planner, Designer & 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.

I cried when it was time to go.
Best workshops EVER!
Total dream! It is very obvious how much thought, planning and details went into creating a seamlessly flawless experience. The content is obviously incredible, but the opportunity to learn in an atmosphere that was designed for us all to feel relaxed, confident, and present had so much value to me personally.
Let me just say that I was a skeptical about workshops in general, and IMMERSED proved me so wrong. It was absolutely worth every penny. I was able to push myself out of my comfort zone and challenge myself creatively, make friendships for life, and immerse myself in a new place and culture that I will never forget. It really was the experience of a lifetime.
I have really enjoyed being a part of the first IMMERSED Workshops, and it was been an experience for sure! Working alongside Anni has been an honour and privilege – her whole personality and kindness make you want to be her friend immediately. Manda went above and beyond making sure that everything was perfectly organized and thought through.
