Oh, friends!!! I feel like it’s Christmas Eve. OK I know it’s August and the holidays are still far away, but that’s the level of anticipation currently bubbling inside of me at today’s special announcement!! What could possibly be that exciting, you ask??

Today Lindsey Taylor and I are announcing our first ever one-day photography workshop!! This has been a big dream of ours for quite some time… Linds and I both love capturing weddings and helping other photographers improve their crafts, and we finally found the PERFECT venue to host an unforgettable workshop experience!

Before I dive into all the exciting details, I want to explain exactly what a photography workshop is, and what you can expect to get out of it! The purpose of Bespoke Workshop is to build your portfolio with beautiful imagery, build your community with like-minded photographers, and build your confidence in running a wedding day. You can expect several hours of valuable education, gorgeous headshots, lunch and snacks, and ALLLLL the photo content! You’ll leave with a full gallery of a wedding day from start to finish… perfect for attracting your ideal client or for getting published!


We’ll start the day with education. We understand the privilege of capturing a couple’s most special day and wish to empower other photographers to feel prepared in shooting weddings! We remember what it was like getting started. Linds and I wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for each other and for other photographers who taught us what we know. Now WE want to prepare YOU with our most helpful tips to gain confidence and live your big dreams!

We’ll leave plenty of time for Q+A as we break for lunch, and then it’s your turn in front of the camera for headshots! (Don’t forget to wear a cute outfit!) Finally, we’ll spend the rest of the day doing what we do best… taking pictures!! Attendees will be split into two groups, so that everyone has plenty of time to capture all the pretty and work individually with our models. The workshop will mimic a real wedding day. Expect getting ready shots, a first look, ceremony, tablescape, beautiful bride and groom sunset portraits, and endless gorgeous details.


Where: Providence Vineyard, a gorgeous new wedding venue just outside Chicago! Nestled among 30 acres of vineyards, the all white glam barn will be our home for the day!

When: One-day workshop on Sunday, 10/11. Everyone will arrive at 11am and we’ll wrap up at sunset! 

Who: Up to 15 photographers who are down to build their portfolios and their community, who are passionate about wedding photography, and who are ready to fast-forward their business growth! 

Investment: $400. A 50% deposit is required to reserve your spot and remaining balance is due on 10/1/2020. *If event is postponed or canceled due to CDC or state guidelines, deposit can either be transferred or refunded*

Safety first: The styled shoot is limited to 15 photographers so that everyone will have plenty of time for shooting, and so that we can all keep a safe distance and abide by CDC and state guidelines. Masks are required! 


If you don’t know us already, we’re Rachael and Lindsey, two full-time photographers turned best friends who are obsessed with Starbucks and weddings! We are passionate about telling stories and supporting other photographers through education. Whether you’ve never shot a wedding or you’re a seasoned professional, we can’t wait to meet you! 

Friends, we would LOVE to have you join us, whether you’re from Chicago or anywhere else!! Regardless of your level of experience, you’ll walk away from Bespoke Workshop a more confident photographer with a beautiful portfolio of imagery, a new network of friends, and alllll our best secrets to running a wedding day. If you’re interested in the workshop but still have some questions, please shoot me a message! I’d love to make sure that Bespoke is the perfect fit for you!
