The Desert Photo Retreat

Welcome to The Desert Photo Retreat. A Southern Utah retreat for adventure elopement, and intimate wedding photographers, and videographers!

March 19-22, 2023

Meet the team!

Hi, I'm Casandrah! I am a local Southern Utah photographer, and specialize in intimate weddings and elopements! I have a passion for being off-road and finding hidden gem locations that almost nobody knows about! I am originally from Washington State, and left the rain for some sunshine and am not mad about it! You can find me on IG at @CasandrahJensenPhotography and @offroad_elopements!


This is going to be SO fun!


Hey, hey! I’m Lindsey, a photographer and videographer here in Southern Utah. I was born and raised on a ranch near the gates of Zion National Park. This has allowed me to explore some pretty amazing places out here in the desert! Capturing the Western and Americana lifestyle are my passion, and I strive to create beautiful, timeless imagery. You can find me over on @embraceyourwildmedia 


I’m so excited to meet you! 



Most Common Questions!

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $1800 each and include everything listed below. Tickets go live on 11/1, but you can ask any questions, or reserve your spot below! A 50% retainer is due to secure your spot, and the final balance is due 6 weeks before the retreat!

Where should I fly in to?

The cheapest and most common airport is Las Vegas, NV. There is an airport in St. George, UT, but tends to be quite a bit more expensive!

How do we get around once we are there?

We have a handful of gals coming that are wanting to go in on a rental car with other attendees. There is a Facebook group for you to ask who all is interested in sharing a car.
There is also a very affordable shuttle from Vegas to St George, and we can come pick you up from there!
