Adventurous At Heart Retreat - 2019 Retreat


Can I just say WOW! The first annual Adventurous At Heart Retreat was nothing short of AMAZING!

When I first began planning the Adventurous At Heart Retreat I had so many ideas I wanted so badly to come to fruition but I had no idea if I would be able to make it a reality; but, with an amazing vendor team and fellow photographers who trusted my vision the retreat was a major success!

The retreat was an amazing 4 day, 3 night adventure-photography retreat with two full days and two half days of styled shoots. SIX unique and beautiful shoots!

The retreat was the perfect way to make new friends and network with other like-minded, creatives. We woke up at ungodly hours of the morning for epic hikes and amazing adventures. We gained friendships we never knew we needed, soaked up unhealthy amounts of sun by the pool, ate too much and laughed even more. If I could host the retreat once a month I absolutely would!!

“I don’t think words can describe how amazing this retreat was! Jasmine did such an amazing job putting everything together, and I was blown away by the quality of the styled shoots. Each shoot was even more amazing than the one before, and the styling was perfect. This was my first time ever attempting underwater photography, and Jasmine was so helpful with making sure everyone had the right settings, and helped pose the models for us while we focused on shooting. I was blown away by the images I got, because I really didn’t think any would turn out! I love that she had the drop-in option for people that live on island, but I seriously wish I stayed and did the whole retreat! I can be uncomfortable staying over somewhere new, but after seeing how accommodating she was to the full retreat members it really makes me want to do the full experience next time. Thank you so much Jasmine!! ”


“I had the honor of joining in on some of the sessions for the first ever Adventurous At Heart Retreat and I am beyond excited for all that I got to capture and learn. Jasmine set up some amazing styled sessions and was an open book on anything you wanted to know. She is incredibly generous and sincerely wants you to learn, grow and have fun. I’m so incredibly thankful and can’t wait for the next one!

Most sincerely,
Lindsay Warland”
