"I highly recommend this shootout to anyone who is looking to get some amazing photos for their portfolio. I encourage everyone to at least do the greenhouse shootout at least once. I know I will try to do this every year. This was the best investment I've ever made for my business and Megan and Mitch did not disappoint with this amazing shootout. I've been to other shootouts and the Greenhouse Shootout is by far the best one yet. It was a total game changer for me. I was struggling in the beginning in getting warmer images and Megan came right over to me like it was no problem and helped me with it. I learned so much from her and now I'm more familiar with my settings. I left happy, encouraged, and motivated to improve my portfolio and photography business. Thank you Megan and Mitch for all you did this weekend in making us feel right at home, and inspired." 

"This shootout was incredible! Megan and Mitch were truly legendary hosts and created such a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the other photographers and I to learn and grow our portfolios. The shoots themselves were to die for (I'm going to build myself a greenhouse one of these days for sure now), the models and the vendors were all super nice and outgoing, and it was just a fantastic weekend overall. If you're looking to get some super unique images for your photography portfolio, you really can't go wrong with this shootout."

"This was one of the most amazing photography opportunities that I’ve ever participated in! The relaxed nature of the retreat and the beautiful details are just exactly what my creative soul needed. The venues were amazing, as were the models and outfits. It all came together so well! Megan and Mitch’s encouragement and direction throughout the 3 days were so sincere and helpful! I gained so much confidence during the retreat and have greatly expanded my portfolio! I can’t wait to do this again!"

"Megan & Mitch, you guys were beyond awesome and welcoming. Thank you soooo much for this experience and for everything you did to make this happen. All your hard work certainly showed through the make-up, clothing, food choice, and hospitality you provided. Thank you for providing a great environment in which one can feel welcomed and comfortable, regardless of how new you may be!"
