A couple weeks ago I was able to attend The Retreat for Likeminded Creatives, hosted by Shanell Photography at The Greencrest Manor in Battlecreek, Michigan. The day was filled with good food, awesome fellow photographers to connect with, and a lot of helpful education that was such a great kickstart to my second year of doing film! So thankful for Shanell for putting this amazing event on, and for Jenn and her talented team at Greencrest who allowed us all onto the grounds and did floral and design for the shoot!

This was my first time on the property and it absolutely did not disappoint! After watching all their work from afar, it felt like a dream to finally be pulling into the long lamp-lit drive experiencing it in person. From the charming front steps, to the pristine garden with fresh blooming flowers, the entire thing is magical!

For the later part of the day, we were able to participate in the styled shoot that Shanell, Jenn and the wonderful team of vendors had been planning months for. Although Greencrest is one of the places you really have to see to believe how beautiful it is, I hope you can get a glimpse of some of the magic in these photos!

Here’s some of my favorites (all on film) of my time there! Enjoy!
