  • Two hours in the afternoon picking our brains asking anything you’ve ever wanted to know. We’re an open book and don’t believe stupid questions exist.

  • Snacks & Friends included.

  • We will finish the evening with two hours of shooting four couples in the hills of Los Angeles.

    • Two bridal/elopement couples

      think flowy dresses and wild flower bouquets

    • Two casual couples

      think earth tones and piggy back rides


Shoot without pressure &

Expand your creativity


Here’s a peek at our last one day workshop! 



Don’t take our word for it, here’s some reviews from past attendees! 


“I don't even know how to describe Cultivate accurately in words. I suppose to put it in short: ABSOLUTELY LIFE-CHANGING. Dawn and Emily foster an environment that is warm, enthusiastic, passionate, and full of information that left my jaw on the floor. From the gorgeous and thoughtful styled shoots (that were out-of-this-world beautiful!) to the one-on-one instruction and feedback, to the carefully planned classes and talks - I am truly mind-blown and want to come back! I left feeling so blessed, inspired, and ready to kick some photography booty going into this next season! Thank you guys so much for your beautiful hearts and creative souls. Cultivate4LYFE!” - Ray RisCassi

“As a brand new photographer I took a chance on Dawn, Emily, and this workshop. I no doubt made the right decision! It’s hard to even fully describe the gratefulness I feel for these two and their vision. They successfully brought together a small group of likeminded women to encourage creativity, share business models and send us off feeling like we CAN do this and our dreams are worth it. The second I walked in the door I receive a warm welcome hug and all fears and insecurities disappeared. Both Dawn and Emily are unique in their career and both were transparent, helpful and motivating. This was the exact investment I needed to steer my dream in the right direction. Thank you both for your precious, open hearts!” - Robyn Kolk

“I can’t say enough good things about Cultivate! It went above and beyond what I could have imagined! I feel like my whole business has changed and I will be able to start charging more and working less. Dawn and Emily are the most personable, open, and fun teachers/photographers. They make the week fun and share with you how they do what they do. It was an honor to hear their wisdom. They created an atmosphere of community over competition. We are all in this together and it was a breath of fresh air. I would encourage everyone to go! Just do it, I promise you won’t regret it.” - Emily Wehner

“I attended CULTIVATE and it was AMAZING! I’m had been thinking about going for a year and finally took the leap. I’m so glad I did! I learned so much from Dawn and Emily. They seriously went over everything you could think of plus they had put together some amazing shoots for us too! I left meeting so many talented women and just feeling refreshed and inspired. It was exactly what I needed. I would highly suggest this workshop plus Dawn and Emily are awesome!” -Katie Hamilton

“I can't say enough great things about this workshop, hands down, the best! Dawn and Emily are the sweetest...so genuine, so helpful, and so incredibly talented, you can really feel their passion for helping other creatives achieve their dreams! No question was off limits, they poured their hearts and souls into helping all of us and I'm so very thankful I got to be a part of it! Plus, they had an amazing team with them who all helped make it a success...Maddie, Courtney and Leo, you all rocked! I had so much fun, I want to do it again!!” - Bridget Murray
