Meet at parking area, introductions to each other and our model couple. Details of them putting on their finishing touches before sunrise and then head down to the lake.

6:15 Am


Sunrise, start at the lake to snag some epic colors in the sky, then start making our way over to the flat loop trail around the lake.

6:50 am


After walking the loop for their ceremony, we'll circle back lake side for their paddleboarding adventure.

8:00 am


After the end of them paddleboarding, we'll head back to shore for a little breakfast picnic and snacks for our couple.

This schedule may change as the shoot adapts, but what won't change is the epic content you'll get, and the rad people you'll get to meet and hang with! ;)

Wrap up our picnic and say goodbye to our couple and each other!

it’s me, hi, I’m riley jean

....and I’m so glad you’re here! Over the last 4 years I have hosted dozens of styled shoots for my fellow photographers, and I am so excited to be able to expand that now into building an education space for amazing creatives (that’s you!) to come together for not just styled shoots, but workshops, intentional education, digital resources, and one on one mentorships all with the goal of helping your business and YOU grow and thrive. No matter where you are in your photography journey, there is something here for you!

Y’all I am so glad I took the leap and attended Riley’s content day. The moment I showed up, I got a hug from Riley and so much kindness from the other attendees. As we started photographing the themed elopement, you could tell Riley put so much time and energy to make it the best it could be, so detail oriented and so beautiful. Not only did Riley create a beautiful day for us to photograph, but she encouraged us, laughed with us and just continued to build up the photography community! So grateful for Riley and her incredible shining light this industry needs!

I had the best time with Riley & Dream Styled Shoots. The whole day was very well organized and everything from the airbnb to the props used were gorgeous. The couples / models she provided were all good vibes and super fun to work with. Riley allowed us all to have plenty of time with each couple and to get creative which is super important to me! She very easily created a space where I felt comfortable being myself and letting my creativity flow! The whole content day was a dream, and helped take my portfolio to the next level as well as give me the opportunity to meet fellow photographers that now have become friends in the community!


How do I get a ticket to one of your events, and what happens if I’m unable to come?

Snagging a ticket is as easy as clicking on the event you’d like to attend here on my website, and then filling out the corresponding contact form! You’ll receive an invoice and contract that needs to be paid within 24 hours to secure your spot! If you are unable to come, it will be your responsibility to sell or transfer your ticket to another individual.

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the nature of styled shoots and in person educational events and their expenses, all ticket purchases and payment plans are non-refundable. 

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, for both mentorships and event tickets! I usually have set options to choose ahead of time, but please let me know what you need and I will make it work for you!

Do you only plan events in Oregon?

No! Since I live here in Oregon, a lot of events do end up being here, but I have also planned events in California and Washington, and am planning an international event soon!

how to sign up:

Click the sign up button on the payment option you'd like, or just fill out the contact form below!

You’ll have 24 hours to pay your invoice and sign your contract in order to secure your spot! After 24 hours your proposal will expire, and you’ll need to request a new one if a spot for that shoot is still available. 

1 month before the shoot you’ll be added to an Instagram group chat with the other attendees where I’ll share information about our models, map pins, and vendor tags!
