we all know the world has been hecktic, to say the least lately and most of our plans and project for 2020 – including for the most the weddings – have been postponed to 2021. This means that for us photographers and vendors of the wedding industry, this is a tough year. Although 2021 is getting much better; I decided that we should not let 2020/21 and all the pandemic bring us down, and on the contrary, from an idea of community, I decided to give the opportunity to other photographers, friends, to continue building their portfolio.
So if you are based in Rome, closeby, or Italy and want to travel closer to the Eternal City, let’s go!
Read more below and send us your request to book your spot for the first moonchilds retreat!
This retreat is a half day styled shoot that we planned with talented creatives to bring you the experience of a real elopement.
All wedding and elopement photographers of all levels. Knowledge of DSLR or mirrorless cameras is required.
I do not aim to teach, but to provide you with an awesome styled shoot to create amazing content for your portfolio.
Obviously though, I will help you if you should need to. I also look forward to building friendships and relationships between you and me, and between all of you. Think of this as a group of photographer friends hanging out for fun, and cool content of course.
The first moonchilds retreat will take place on October 31, 2021. That is a Sunday! The location is in Rome. TBD
The maximum availability is 10 spots, we want everyone to be able to shoot all the photos they want and not be too crowded around the couples.
ONLY 7 REMAINING SPOTS AVAILABLE!
The cost for participating is 220€, to be paid before the retreat via PayPal or wire transfer. If the places would not be filled in, you can pay by cash on the day of the retreat.
There is an early bird price which is discounted to 200€!
we will have a wonderful couple for our styled elopement AND a gorgeous model for a separate bridal photosession too!
we have a surprise for you. a gorgeous model for a bridal only photosession too! 2 photoshoots in 1.
i choose to call this retreat "moon childs" because i feel a connection to the moon and are intrigued by all astronomy related things. (you can say i'm kind of a geek)
A Moon Child is a unique and a curious soul who is often in a daze, his or her mind is always out of this world. this is what i want to convey.
i require you guys to be vaccinated or have a green pass (either vaccination, negative test or recovery). The retreat will be held taking actions and keeping all the safety measures possible and that are required by law and recommended by all health institutions. Hopefully we will be able to shoot outdoors, but in case we can not, indoors we will wear masks if social distance can not be guaranteed, and make everything in our power to all stay safe. Also, we will be divided in order to allow everyone to photograph everything, and safely.
the price includes the couple, the flowers, the settings and everything necessary to the photoshoot.
it does not include any transportation to the photoshoot location, overnight stay or food. you shall provide for these yourself. we can give you recommendations and connect you with fellow photographers to organize the transfer the best way possible.
Unfortunately the booked spots can not be refunded. You can sell it to a fellow photographer so it does not get lost. We look forward to meeting you though 🙂
we are not really scared about the weather, usually Italy has pretty cool weather even in October. If the weather was bad we still will held the retreat, we have a Plan B! In case of a huge meteo event that would really make the event unable to be held, we will find a new date that fits everyone and hopefully be able to move the retreat. But wouldn’t it be fun to shoot with some awesome wind, for example? Also, the location allows us to shoot both indoor and outdoor, so no worries
Yes of course! I would love to have at least 1 per season, especially in those periods of the year when our season is a bit calmer and we photographers have more time to focus on personal projects. Also, the idea is to move around and choose always different styles and locations. What do you think?
