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.

Day 1

Sunset beach & water

The northwest side of Big Island is home to million dollar views and million dollar beaches.

We'll spend some time in some epic view sunset beaches with two couples for an engagement and elopement look.

Toward the end of this shoot we'll be having our couples get into the water for some dreamy steamy intimate moments.

Polulu Valley

sunrise elopement & engagement

The Polulu Valley, on the northeast side of the Big Island is a magical and perfect place to spend a morning sunrise.

We will meet with two couples at the beach and will enjoy shoots in the ancient volcanic valley and through beautiful ironwood trees.

This styled shoot requires some hiking but we will work together to empower one another to be safe and to create beautiful memories.

Lava flows & black sands

an epic sunset in the South

Our final styled shoot will take place near the volcano,  Kīlauea. Thankfully, we'll be avoiding live lava flows and will just be spending time on old and epic lava flows.

We'll also be spending time on a black sand beach with our couples as well.

This sunset styled shoot will feature an engagement and elopement couple.

Hawaii has strict COVID restrictions and requires a negative COVID test as of mid-2021 for arrival. This must be done 72 hour in advance of your departure. As the restrictions change, our attendees will be updated with the current Hawaiian requirements.

"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?"

The Big Island in January has varying temperatures. Our AirBnB is located at a higher elevation and will be cooler than on the coast. Bringing cozy warm clothes for learning will be great. Most days we will be in warm temps but having a rain jacket and warm clothes will come in handy.

"what types of clothes will i need?"

We won't ask you for any funds while at the AirBnB. If you'd like to spend money on souvenirs, buy extra goodies, or anything else, you should bring some extra cash. We will have your food, drinks, and stay covered as well as all the fees, permits, and everything else. Is it nice to treat-yoself? Yes, so bring some cash if you'd like to do that.

"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?"
