Portraits & Pinot 2018
June 1-3, 2018
Mark your calendars for June! I'm hosting another women's retreat weekend in wine country, where I'll be offering my portrait work for all guests.
I'm beyond ecstatic to announce that my sister-photog, Lenka Sluneckova (https://lsportraits.com/) will be assisting me this time. Lenka is an extremely talented portrait and boudoir photographer whose own work is a huge inspiration to me. She's an absolute gem and her positive attitude is infectious. I can't express how lucky we are to have her join us this weekend.
For this series, I'd like to focus the images around the lake. I think it's an ideal location for creating a variety of image types. I've started a Pinterest board with some inspiration here: https://www.pinterest.com/elisareed/portraits-pinot-two/
Throughout the weekend you'll also be free to frolic through 40 acres of lush private wine country property, including two private lakes, a creek, vineyards, and a meadow. The property is a stunning, modern backdrop with unlimited unique features, including a raised Italian bathtub overlooking the lake, an outdoor shower, and an indoor tree.
I'm beyond ecstatic to see this vision come to life with you. I'll work with each of you individually to create your concept over the next 2 months.
$400 for accommodation and either 2 fully edited and retouched images, OR 5 edited photos (but not retouched) images.
I've separated out my standard editing from my retouching to be able to deliver you as many high quality images as possible. Not all images need retouching, so I want to be able to provide you with quality images for a lower investment when possible, but I also need to charge accordingly for requests on retouching.
Retouching is essentially anytime I need to make larger adjustments to an image, this could include; changing the background (like replacing the floor in Bubbles & Bath) or for the levitation image of Angela over the bathtub, or more extensive edits like enhancing your features, digital make-up adjustments, or glamour edits. With the nature of these images, I don't anticipate needing any retouching, but I'm leaving it as an option should you choose some more extensive post-processing.
Additional images may be purchased for $25 (edited, not retouched) OR $100 edited and retouched. This is lower than I normally charge $50+ that I'm only able to do here since we're using the same general location/lighting so I can streamline the editing process and make up for the loss in volume of images.
Spots limited to 10 guests.
