Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How many seats are available?

There are 12 seats.

What is included?

Your registration includes all meals and snacks at the workshop, daily group transportation to and from the workshop and any activities, and lodging at the headquarters hotel, a Holiday Inn Express about 15 minutes away from the ranch. In a nutshell, everything but airfare and transportation from the airport to the headquarters hotel.

What if I bought a seat and am unable to attend? Do you offer a refund?

All seats and all payments made are non-refundable. You are welcome to sell your seat to someone else if you wish, but please contact us by email and let us know that your seat at the workshop will be used by a different person.

What airport do I fly into?

We recommend flying into HOU (Houston Hobby Airport). The airport is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from the ranch.

How far is the hotel from the ranch?

The hotel is approximately 20 minutes from the ranch. Each day we will provide group transportation from the hotel to the ranch as well as any workshop activities.

What is the weather like?

The weather in Texas is usually hot and humid, however, we tend to keep it very cool inside, so we recommend bringing a sweater for the times we spend indoors.

I don't need a hotel room - can I get a discount?

We’re passionate about the community atmosphere – which is why we’ve included all meals and will have group transportation to and from the hotel each day for all activities. With that in mind, we’re unable to offer any discounts if you choose to not stay at the headquarters hotel.

What should I bring?

Here are some ideas to bring along: a laptop or notebook to jot down the many fantastic ideas you’ll have, your camera and a fixed aperture lens (preferable), any branding materials you want critiqued, a sweater or jacket because we tend to keep it very cold in our house, a big appetite for amazing Texas cuisine and wine and cheese, an open mind to learn new things, a big smile and a willingness to make new friends.

I'm not specifically a wedding photographer, is this still for me?

Our journey and business is wedding focused and many of the topics will be wedding related, as such. However, the shooting, business, and pricing principles are all taught in a way that could carry over to other specialties.

What is the start and end time each day?

Our schedules are tentative, but to give you an idea, the Monday evening welcome social will begin around 4 PM and conclude at dark. Tuesday and Wednesday will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude around 6:30 PM.

Can I use these images in my portfolio?

Yes – you’re free to use these images in your portfolio, blog, or social media – anywhere that helps your business!

Is airfare included?

Airfare is not included and you are responsible for making your own plane tickets.

We recommend flying into HOU (Houston Hobby Airport). The airport is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from the ranch.

What happens if it rains?

In the event of rain, we’ll move both shoots to places where we have shelter from the elements.

What should I wear?

We’re pretty casual around here! Our welcome dinner is outdoors on the ranch, so we suggest something that you’ll be cool and comfortable in. For the classroom days we recommend dressing for comfort… think yoga pants and tee shirts! In the evenings on our shoots, it can be warm – so keep that in mind. We’ll update the group on when the headshots take place so that you will know when to dress to impress!

When should I arrive?

You should plan your travel to arrive to the headquarters hotel (Holiday Inn Express in Wharton, Texas) by 3:00 PM on Monday afternoon. The shuttle to the ranch will pick everyone up from the hotel around 3:30 PM.
