what are you here for?

Being a photographer is an insane blend of artistry, technology, and customer service that often leaves us feeling exhausted, burnt out, and overwhelmed. I get it, I’ve been there, fuck we’ve all been there. That’s where this community comes in; a space with other photographers you can lean on and depend on, and education, resources, and creative shoots that won’t let you down. No matter where you are at in your photography and business journey, whether you're a brand new photographer or on your 10th wedding season, this community is for you! 

welcome to your new favorite photography community

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!

in person events, meticulously designed with you in mind

All the time I find myself thinking, especially in the off season, “what if a micro wedding was in THIS spot” or “what if an elopement had THIS theme/inspo?!” This is where I bring those ideas, mine and yours, to life, and you can come along with me! From a coastal elopement inspired by Bella and Edward’s Breaking Dawn honeymoon, to a full out disco cowgirl desert shoot with a vintage orange VW Bug, you’ll be able to shoot creative concepts with the raddest vendors, and become a part of a community who will encourage you and root for you along the way! 

current upcoming events:

starry desert elopement

A celestial, grungy themed elopement shoot in an epic desert location with wide open skies. We‘ll start with detail shots of our couple, have a ceremony with custom florals, and then capture our couple with their vintage Harley Davidson motorcycle.
After it starts to get dark, the shoot will be open for anyone who wants to try a bit of astrophotography with our models and create some epic starry images!

redwoods + southern oregon coast full content day

Epic landscapes, unique outfits, and THREE couples! We'll capture one elopement styled couple in both the Redwoods and on the Coast, one casual style couple in separate Redwoods location, and one casual style couple also in our Coast location. This day will be packed with perfect PNW content and have incredible florals and personalized touches to bring it all together. And I'm bringing snacks ;)

sunrise cascade lakes elopement

A fun paddleboarding adventure elopement on a stunningly gorgeous lake. We‘ll start with detail shots of our couple just before sunrise, and then get to capture the changing light as we explore around the lake for their ceremony. Then our couple will paddle off on a paddleboarding adventure, and finish up with a mini breakfast picnic by the lake. An epic elopement adventure from start to finish with colorful touches!

it’s time to level up

One on one time with you in mind from start to finish. Whether it’s virtual or in person, after an in depth questionnaire, you’ll come away with valuable insight into your business and photography that will allow you to grow and change as well as a comprehensive website and social media review with constructive feedback on how you can take your business to the next level. 

starting at $350

I did a virtual mentorship with Riley and it was such a beneficial call! I am a fairly new photographer and wanted to speak with someone who I loved their style, brand messaging, and overall presence. Riley was so kind and really took her time to answer questions for me. It's nice to have a supportive mentor in this business and she is always a text away. She's given myself and my business the confidence to grow!

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!

What will I get in a mentorship? 

I have two mentorship options, so you can choose which one will suit you best! The first is an online call, where we will go over your goals and strengths, your business questions, literally anything you want for an hour on zoom. You’ll also get a website evaluation from me as well as detailed notes. The second mentorship option is in person, where we’ll do all of the above but a cozy coffee shop and then practice your skills in a styled shoot I set up just for you!

I can’t wait to see you shine!

Thank you for being here, and I am so freaking excited to see how your business grows and thrives, and to truly be a part of your journey!
