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.

"Marcie is truly the host with the most! She curated an incredible teaching lineup, plus made sure the accommodations and amenities were so good that each attendee and teacher/admin felt like we were on a literal retreat. The timing of each activity was just enough structure to allow for teaching/shooting and then connecting/relaxing. I remember walking back into the living room after putting my stuff away in my room on the first night and was overwhelmed with the amount of thought and detail Marcie and team put together for us. It wasn’t just swag bags, it was the white coat chefs making dinner (plus printed menu!), and the printed photos, one from each attendees portfolio. I have never been so surprised or cared for and valued by strangers. I mean, we weren’t strangers to Marcie as she had put the attendees at the focus of this retreat long before we showed up to the house. THAT, is what makes Marcie and team so great. They really do care and they pay attention to the little things. Also? They’re great teachers and humans. So fun getting to know each of them and the attendees. I’ll for sure be sharing the next retreat anytime Marcie offers one - if not attend again! 10 out of 10 stars, easily."

Shalonda Chaddock is the face behind the camera of Chubby Cheek Photography. She is a nationally published child+ family photographer, based out of Houston Texas, where she is drowning in a mountain of volleyball laundry and a lip-gloss rainbow from her two tween daughters. 
 
Her shooting style focuses on the magic of the right now because she knows from personal experience that nothing can stop your babies from growing up, but photographs can freeze the in between moments so that you never forget.  She whole heartedly believes in laughing so hard that you can't breathe and that queso cures all.
 
She picked up a camera to freeze those magical moments of her own children and never put it down so she could freeze those moments for her clients!
 
Her shooting style focuses on the magic of childhood and the belly laugh love from a family's connection. She allows REAL life to inspire her and shape her journey as a photographer, always recognizing that the little moments do mean the most, even when it means tripping over yet another pair of volleyball shoes before she has had her coffee.

"I just got back from The Roadtripper’s Retreat in Bear Lake and it was THE most amazing experience! I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it, but it was everything I hoped for and so much more! From breakout classes to portfolio reviews to the styled shoot outs led by Marcie and Meg; everything was so meticulously planned and well thought out. Every activity they had planned for us was equal parts educational and FUN! I seriously enjoyed every minute. I made friendships and memories with The Roadtripper’s that will last a lifetime. I’m so grateful for Marcie for putting this together and helping me take one huge step closer to where I want to be in my photography business."
