expErience

Imagine yourself waking up to the smell of sweet incense, the feel of fresh jungle air on your skin with the sense of a real adventure calling your name.

Picture yourself walking through rice terraces, drinking straight from coconuts and listening to the enchanting hymns coming from the monks in the temple down the road.

Think about gathering for dinner at night - a dinner where every detail has been perfectly and intentionally planned out just for you.

Can you see yourself dipping your toes into the warm, blue waters of the Pacific/Indian Ocean while learning about what true connection and authentic mementos really entail?

Can you imagine being immersed in a new culture and collaborating with the people around you to create the most real experience you’ve ever been a part of?…


STRICTLY For intermediate to advanced photographers
This experience will be unlike any other workshop you’ve attended.

for the photographer who has been shooting within the walls of their city or state, or even within the U.S., and is craving to break out of their market and get some real, tangible experience in the world.


This workshop is not for the fainthearted and its not simply a portfolio builder. your time at immersed will not only push you deeper as a creative but as a person as well.
We want you to get out of your box.

Learn

It may be your first time in Bali, or even out of the country. So we want to make sure that we soak it all in. Let’s really experience Indonesia! The blue ocean, the humid jungles, the spiritual yoga in the morning with open air kitchens making your dinner every night - with every detail, we will be immersing ourselves in the culture around us.

We have multiple styled shoots planned, but portfolio building will not be our main focus here. We aren’t going to be teaching “posing” or telling you how to get your couples to play games with one another.
Because in reality, if you are predominantly a wedding photographer then you pose your couples probably 1/16 of the time, and the rest of the wedding is refined photojournalism. What we want to do is to focus on
the art of storytelling.
How can you learn to tell the story of a couple and a place that is unique and captivating? How can you stand out in the sea of photographers? How do you capture moments as they happen, see what no one else sees, and then focus on the in-between.


Learn how to really travel and shoot abroad
Learn how to create work that is authentic and meaningful
Learn how to create a story through your art
Learn how to connect with others on a deeper level and be in a community where we share thoughts, ideas and this wild experience - together.

Where culture meets creativity

 

THE CREATORS


 
 

EDUCATOR AND INSTRUCTOR

Hi, I'm Anni, and I currently live in Oregon, but spend most my time traveling with my amazing couples from all around the world to incredible places that are both inspiring and meaningful. When I'm not working, I'm probably traveling with my husband to some bucket list place that feels impossible to miss out on. I've experienced love, friendship, and human connection to be one of the deepest pursuits in life and feel so honored to be able to document these timeless memories for people all over the world. I find so much meaning in creating experiences for couples that makes them fall more in love with each other and becomes something to look back on and feel for a lifetime.


PLANNER, DESIGNER & STYLIST

The name is Manda Sue, like "Amanda" without the A.
I own Mae&Co Creative in Portland Oregon. I started Mae&Co over 4 years ago and haven’t stopped going ever since. The only thing I love doing as much as designing and styling is traveling. Our company specializes in bringing together all of our greatest passions - planning, designing and traveling the world to give our clients a once-in-a-lifetime experience that they will never forget. When I’m dead and gone, I want people to remember us by saying “they did things different”
