Join us in January for an exciting presentation by Charleton Churchill.

Experience the adventure of a lifetime. Explore what it takes to become an adventure wedding photographer, what that means for you and your couples, and more importantly, how to infuse it with your style regardless if you live in the city or the wilderness.  Charleton will share the lessons he’s learned, the difficulties he’s encountered, his gear bag in what to pack even when hiking, and how to get started. You also won’t want to miss his internationally viral story of perseverance in being the photographer who documented the wedding up to Mt. Everest base camp with a couple in their wedding dress and tuxedo,…something never seen before until now.
