The Retreat

We can’t think of a better place to begin and end our days at Bliss & Bokeh 2015 this spring than The Cottages on Charleston Harbor, a row of charming two bedroom cottages situated along the Charleston harbor overlooking downtown Charleston. Imagine wide screened porches and hammocks, green lawns with adirondack chairs and water lapping along the shore.

Mornings at Bliss & Bokeh will be full of engaging discussion and presentations by each of our fabulous speakers. Keeping the retreat intimate allows each of our attendees time to pose questions and interact with speakers in a meaningful way.

Afternoons at Bliss & Bokeh will inspire attendees with hands on learning and instruction, including time to get behind the lens and grow as photographers and creatives, working closely with our lead photographers, Jen Huang and Elisa Bricker, to participate in our beautifully styled photo shoots.

Attendees will also enjoy many incredible opportunities throughout the retreat, including a one on one portfolio critique, time in front of the lens for a beautiful headshot portrait, and for those who are interested, the chance to shoot with a Contax 645 system from Contax Rental!

We can’t imagine a better way to spend our evenings at Bliss & Bokeh than by treating everyone to the culinary delights of Charleston and time to soak up all of the beauty of Charleston’s various venues and spaces. This time around the table with new friends is where we believe the magic happens.

While we love to talk about the charm of this beautiful city and the talent and success of our speakers, what truly fuels our enthusiasm is the collaboration of like-minded women, the community in the making. It’s the excitement of witnessing a group of wildly talented and creative women come together and engage in a meaningful way. We believe what you’ll treasure most, long after saying your goodbyes and heading home, are the relationships, the women you’ll call friends, and the encouragement you’ll feel from all of them as you continue in this business you love!
