Freebie: Tips for the Organized Photographer!

Fear and self doubt can be crippling
It's a road block on your journey
The Roadtripper's Retreat is an adventure that will set you free

The Roadtripper's retreat is designed for women who want to invest in their business, elevate their hobby, and develop their brand style. They love photography, thrive on being around other creative women, and want to keep investing in their craft no matter where they are on their journey.

It will be a safe place to learn and explore areas of your photography that you want to improve.  It will be a place to share what you love about photography and inspire others with the accomplishments you've already made.   


A little about me. When I was a little girl the only thing I wanted to do was become a teacher. When I became a teacher, I knew it was exactly what I was meant to do. I absolutely adored my job. When my daughter was born I picked up a camera and discovered my other greatest passion, and that is photography. Now I'm able to serve, educate, and mentor other photographers on their own journey.

I own a thriving in-demand kids, family, newborn, portrait and commercial photography business in Atlanta, GA. I am a Tamron Ambassador, the founder of The Roadtrippers Retreat, an educational experience for female photographers, the author of the best selling instructional resource Bringing Home the Story of the Beach. I started my professional photography career in 2010 growing the Marcie Reif Photography brand into the commercial and portrait photography experience it is today. I speak several times a year at conferences around the country, representing major brands and leading other photographers by giving them the confidence and tools to create strong portraits of family and children, as well as motivational strategies on building their photography community. My work has been featured countless times by industry-leading companies and has appeared in multiple highly-acclaimed magazines.  


hello. I'm Marcie.

"With the highest confidence, I recommend Marcie's photography retreat to anyone looking to become stronger and more confident with their photography! I learned things I didn’t even know I needed to learn! It’s obvious that Marcie has a passion for teaching photography and encouraging other women to go after their dreams. She works with each individual photographer and sets up a plan for their specific goals. I'll never regret the investment I made in myself by attending this retreat. I was able to come home and start applying what I had learned immediately. I can’t tell how much this has helped with my business and my confidence. I give this experience 5+ stars.!"
