Darling Wedding Retreat


The 2017 Darling Wedding Retreat will take place April 28-30 and you will walk away fully inspired for wedding season. On top of being inspired, you’ll be prepared to turn your weddings around for your clients in 7-14 days and love the photographs you provide them! The Darling Wedding Workshop will last 3 days and 2 nights, your private room accommodations, gourmet breakfast and dinner included. You’ll have two styled shoots on the same day, one being bridal boudoir and the other being a full styled wedding with a real couple. This non stop learning atmosphere will include a workflow presentation after dinner one night and tons of inspirational chatter.  



Accommodations at The Russell House

Styled Wedding + Boudoir at Newagen Seaside Inn

There is space for 7 attendees to each have their own room.  All attendees will join a Facebook Group to chat prior to the workshop and move to the alumni group after their workshop – with continued education and support.



Jennifer Smith of Darling Photography (me!) is the teacher and photographer you will be learning from! All of your questions will be answered completely and you’ll leave feeling 100% confident in your next chapter as a photographer!

Our team continues to grow every day, including sponsors + a team for our wedding day styled session.

“The Darling Workshop was the absolute best experience I could have imagined! The full day wedding walk through was an incredible learning opportunity in every aspect of our business because not only were we able to learn about the shooting aspect of our business, but we learned how Jen builds the day to exceed client and vendor expectations. In just the few short weeks after the wedding I have already begun to put these things into practice, and my business is transforming!” – Becki

“I would recommend this workshop to any photographer! I think it’s beneficial for wedding photographers but also to any photographer that works with couples. I think it helps with all aspects of the process including the actual shooting/posing, but the business end, which is where so many people (aka me!) struggle. I felt so energized and motivated when I left the workshop and have such a long list of things that I want to work on improving or starting. Jenn, you are such an inspiration, mentor, influential person that I have so much respect for and am in awe of! I really hope to be as successful and motivating as you are someday!!! Thank you again for everything! I am forever grateful for all of your help and knowledge that you are so willing to give!!” – Meghan

“The format of the workshop was perfect for me. I loved the balance of the hands-on experience along with the presentation portion. There was so much opportunity to ask questions both of you and the other participants. Overall, I got a lot from the workshop and feel so much more prepared to work with clients. ….. The location was AMAZING. The lodging was fabulous, the food was fabulous (thanks for all of the gluten free options) and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.” – Emily

“I had a really amazing experience!!! I learned so much and it has radically changed my business for the better. I’ve already implemented new software and made my workflow more efficient. I loved your ‘no bullshit, take it or leave it’ approach to the business aspect of your work and it’s enabled me to spend less time negotiating and writing emails. You are a great example of a creative thinker and business woman (#girlboss) while remaining approachable and relatable. That is not an easy balance to strike! I feel comfortable coming to you with questions even after the workshop has passed which is not at all the case with other workshops I have attended. ….. The setting was gorgeous and every detail was impossibly perfect. It was one of those days where you step back and think “wait, pinch me, is this real life?” Our style seems very aligned and I was in photo heaven. It was an experience that had me staying up until 5am working on my business for weeks because I was feeling so inspired and empowered. I love how active the Facebook group is and it’s proven to be a great resource. You are incredibly generous and transparent in sharing your knowledge and business workflow with us. The continued mentoring is worth it’s weight in gold and I really enjoy our tight knit group all supporting each other.” – Lex

“The most AMAZING workshop ever!!!” – Justine
