Las Vegas is the wedding capital of the world filled with so many epic elopement spots.
From downtown Vegas, the Strip, beautiful drive-thru wedding chapels, and epic desert views, Vegas has a spot for everyone.
That's why we're spending 4 nights and 5 days in this amazing location, shooting epic alternative elopement styled shoots with amazing and diverse models and talented educators.
April 17-21, 2022
You feelin' Lucky?
Las vegas is calling you!
A limited gathering of 12 attendees
I'm a wedding and elopement photographer in Indiana. But it wasn't always this way. I began my career in a very different place but never found the joy and freedom that being an entrepreneur has afforded me.
I've spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours learning, refining, and growing my business. With an undergrad in education and a love for leadership and empowering others, The New Adventure Workshop was born.

It's so good to meet you! I'm Nate!

Felicia Dale is the owner of Emerald Lotus Events and is a wedding coordinator. She has planned and coordinated hundreds of weddings and has helped educate future planners at Purdue University.

setting expectations & timeline creation
Hey, it's me, Nate! I'm the owner of New Adventure Productions and your host for the week.
We'll be covering a variety of subjects including SEO, your ideal clients and branding, and of course destination elopements. We'll also dive into cost of business, taxes, and how to charge for travel.
Before the workshop, each attendee gets a 2 hour mentor session as well over video to go over their website, brand, and social media. We'll take a deep dive in so that you can start making those changes now to further enhance your growth post-workshop.

Midcentury Manor Shoot
Goodbyes & Checkout
goodbye's aren't forever
Downtown Vegas is the O.G. of Vegas. Lots of murals, beautiful public artwork, and lots of beautiful places to take your eloping couples.
This styled shoot will feature alternative styles. Short dresses, black wedding skirts, and lots of fun and edgy moments to show the world that eloping doesn't have to mean a white dress and heels.
Graffiti, murals, and lots of daytime edge
An elegant venue with a midcentury twist
Midcentury Manor was originally built for the owner of Caesar's Palace. The new owner, Dale came in and breathed a breath of fresh but still authentic midcentury air back into it.
We will be featuring two eloping couples in the space inside and out from prep to ceremony and even a pool after party.
Oh yeah, we're totally getting our models into the water at night.
Nighttime is the right time in Vegas!
The Fremont Street Experience is truly quintessential Las Vegas. Home to hundreds of stores, restaurants, and casinos, it's the look that always comes to mind when people think "Las Vegas Elopement."
We will be featuring two couples, an elopement couple as well as an engagement couple for our Fremont Street Shoot, which will be taking place after dark.
Beautiful desert moments in this gorgeous state park.
The Valley of Fire State Park, located just an hour away from Las Vegas hosts countless weddings and elopements each year.
It only makes sense that we go to create content there for you to sell to your future audience.
Both couples will be featuring elopement looks and we will navigate throughout the park to show people that Vegas is more than just lights, booze, and old glamour.
Practice and implementation time - built into the workshop.
Location exploration for blogs, content creation, and badass eats and treats!
$10 Tattoos on the last day for interested attendees at Koolsville Tattoo in downtown Vegas.
Headshot swaps and branding sessions built in throughout our styled shoots.
Some fun little extras
We will be asking people to pick up and clean after themselves. While we won't require vaccinated attendees, we all want everyone to remain healthy and encourage attendees to do what is best for their health and beliefs.
"What COVID precautions are you taking?"
No problem! During the booking process, we'll ask you to specify if you have dietary restrictions or needs. i.e. gluten intolerance, lactose, allergies, or lifestyle such as vegan, vegetarian, etc. We'll be offering both in-home cooked meals as well as catered options and will be sure to accommodate your needs.
"i have food allergies or dietary restrictions"
After we finish booking everyone, we'll be adding everyone to a private Facebook group & Instagram pod for attendees only. We can connect with one another and you can ride share to the AirBnB. It's about a $30-$40 ride from the Airport.
"how do i get to the airbnb?"
Our attendee contract states that any attendee with a positive test/cannot attend will be first in line for our next workshop or the following. If you are unable to attend any of them, you'll be reimbursed the fee minus your deposit. We'd obviously rather have you at our workshop so stay healthy!
"What if i have a positive COVID test/cannot attend?"
Vegas is warm in April and the weather is nice. So you'll want to bring clothes that you're comfortable in and maybe a light jacket for the evenings.
For our adventure shoots in the desert, be sure to bring solid closed toed shoes. We won't be doing any strenuous hiking.
"what types of clothes will i need?"
We have your basics covered including all your food and drinks while at the AirBnB. Any extra spending money you want to bring is up to you. While not required, I encourage you to have some spending cash for souvenirs and any other things you might want while out.
"Will i need extra money?"
ABSOLUTELY! We want everyone to have a safe and inclusive space to be able to share, learn, and grow with one another. Our space is LGBTQ+ inclusive and friendly because we believe that love is love and that your gender and orientation are valid and valued.
"is the workshop inclusive and lgbtq+ friendly?"
Book your travel, join up with the private Facebook group for attendees, and coordinate travel between the airport and the AirBnB. We'll be there to greet you with hugs, fist bumps, and a cocktail.
Travel & Adventure
In addition to our education, you'll receive a 2 hour video chat with me. We'll go over your social media and website and talk about where you want to gear your business toward.
Schedule your chat
We'll review the applications and send out the contracts and invoices. These expire in 72 hours so be ready to jump right in!
Pay the deposit
To ensure that our attendees are the right fit for our workshop, we're asking everyone to fill out an application.
"If I had gotten nothing else other than incredible portfolio content from The New Adventures Workshop, my investment would have been worth it.
However, what I got was so much more than just incredible photos. Nate, Felicia, and the New Adventures team went above and beyond creating one of the most welcoming, encouraging, positive, fun, and valuable experiences I could have imagined.
The educators were amazing, down to earth, and the information provided was immediately applicable to my business. Not to mention, the environment they created was super collaborative and allowed all of the attendees to share their experiences, ask vulnerable questions, and learn from one another that I’m not sure I would have been able to do at another workshop.
If you’re wondering whether you should make the jump and invest in yourself with The New Adventures Workshop, the short answer is yes. I can’t recommend it enough!"
