Our home for the week

To cultivate community, we’ll all be staying together at a beautifully remodeled Airbnb in Santa Barbara, CA. Here we’ll enjoy meals, class time, and relaxation between shoots. From the private beach to the cozy Casper mattresses, from the fleet of bikes to our own private hot tub… our house is a true California oasis.


The Airbnb will be group accommodations. This means you’ll likely be sharing a bed with a new friend! If you’d like to request a roommate, please do so when purchasing your ticket!

"I've attended a number of styled shoots and workshops, and Bespoke was one of the most well executed ones that I've been to. Rachael & Lindsey selected great vendors and models to work with to provide the highest quality experience from the beginning to the end. They were extremely organized when it came to keeping track of time and offering equal opportunities for all attendees to capture the content they wanted. The education portion at the beginning of the day was extremely insightful, as Rachael & Lindsey have dozens of weddings under their belts and have had years to learn the ins and outs of wedding days and master the client experience. I highly recommend any future workshops that Rachael & Lindsey put on for any photographer, but especially for newer photographers. Few styled shoots/workshops offer the same full-day wedding experience - something that is invaluable for photographers who are just beginning to dive into the world of weddings and want to build their wedding portfolio."

- Gretchen, 2020 Attendee

Where do I even start with how amazing the Bespoke Workshop was?!

Rachael and Lindsey threw the most epic workshop EVER. There were so many beautiful details to look at and capture, it was very well organized with loads of tiny beautiful details; they really thought about everything. The models/couple they chose was GORGEOUS and so nice, they listened to all of our requests and didn’t make faces when we asked them to change positions/poses 1000x haha. Rachael and Lindsey broke out the workshop into two groups so everyone could get one on one time with them which was very nice. Bespoke was filled with all the knowledge we could ask for. Overall, I’d say I basically walked out of this workshop 100x more confident in my abilities as a photographer!! Thank you so much to both Rachael and Lindsey for such an amazing day, I learned a lot and made lots of new photographer friends which were missing in my life :) Thank you again!! Cannot wait for Bespoke 2.0!!

- Filza, 2020 Attendee

This was by far one of the best decisions I have made in my life!

Rachael & Lindsey made sure that every detail was taken care of, of all the styled shoots and workshops that I have attended, it was by far the most organized and stress free. I was able to fully relax and take my time and get all of the shots that I wanted for my portfolio and I felt comfortable and free to ask questions throughout the entire workshop. They also had a presentation that I found extremely helpful as someone who is just getting started in the wedding industry AND presents which was so thoughtful and fun. Would recommend Bespoke to any photographer at any experience level!

Whether you are just beginning your photography journey or have been shooting for years, the Bespoke workshop is the place for you!!! It exceeded all of my expectations. You will leave with the most happy feeling, I promise!! This experience allows you to learn from the very best hosts, meet other photographers at all different levels, and come away with amazing photos. The day was so well planned and thought out. If you are trying to find a way to up your game or just simply want a fun day to meet new amazing people, BESPOKE IS FOR YOU!

- Anna, 2021 Attendee

It exceeded all of my expectations.

Bespoke Workshop is not just a workshop, not just a styled shoot and not just a seminar. It’s an experience. An amazing experience! It’s an opportunity to connect with other photographers, to ask questions in a comfortable setting and to capture beautiful images. Lindsey & Rachael, and the vendors who they partner with, are incredibly talented with great attention to detail. Bespoke was such a welcoming experience and I recommend for any photographer looking to grow their network while capturing exquisite images!

- Kim, 2020 & 2021 Attendee

An amazing experience!

Bespoke Workshop offered an amazing display of content and talent in the wedding industry! The vendor team pulled out all the stops and the photography bliss was real! I am so thankful for the opportunity to be alongside a photographer further along than me in my business and be able to shoot side by side and ask my questions. I truly feel like Lindsey and Rachael care about me and believe in me as a photographer!

- Jennifer, 2021 Attendee

I am so thankful for the opportunity

I am absolutely blown away by everything that Rachael and Lindsey put together for the Bespoke Workshop. The entire day was perfectly curated and made it easy for me to create gorgeous photos! They handled all the posing and directing themselves so I could literally get the perfect shot in every moment of the day! Their design and aesthetic is high-end and modern, which I absolutely love. The vendors they partner with are also top notch and it is so awesome getting introduced to new amazing talent, including the attendees themselves! I’ve already made so many new friends and the workshop has opened new opportunities for me and my business moving forward. I can’t wait to see what the next workshop will be!

- Ashley, 2021 Attendee

I am absolutely blown away!

I've attended in-person/online photography classes and styled shoots here and there but never an actual workshop. The experiences are sometimes less than satisfactory. I was bummed for missing out of the first Bespoke due to a schedule conflict, especially after seeing amazing images and reviews from attendees that day! Bespoke 2.0 did not disappoint! Rachael and Lindsey are both phenomenal hosts. All the vendors that participated brought their A-game and the final product was beyond anything I expected --- the exquisite florals, elegant table setting, fine wedding details, fun bridal party, stunning calligraphy and most of all, the ravishing real-life couple! The education part was concise and straight-to-the-point. The styled shoot portion was organized and fun! It's not the usual editorial feel as they try to mimic portions of a real wedding as much as possible, which means realistic photos for your portfolio! Whether you're just starting out or have been in business for years, you're guaranteed to walk away with something worthwhile - from a bunch of business/creative tips, new-found photog/vendor friends to gorgeous photos for your portfolio. Money well-spent!

- Michelle, 2021 Attendee
