Chances are you’re reading this particular blog post because you are a photographer yourself. And possibly you are interested in attending the Anchored Workshop! So first off, hey there!
Jeff and I are so excited you are here!

We’ve made it a point to go to a couple of different photography workshops and conferences over the last couple of years, so we’ve decided to post our personal and completely honest reviews on ALL. OF. THEM! Excited yet?! Cool.

Ok so first…

You need to know what the Anchored Workshop is all about and who is the mind behind it! Enter Devin Robinson, the guy (don’t worry Kathryn we love you too!) behind the photography company Anchor & Veil based out of Charlotte, NC. He also runs an awesome Podcast called The Anchored Business Podcast. AND has a great Youtube channel with some of the most in depth and helpful videos out there!

Guys… Devin is not only one of the most talented photographers we have EVER seen let alone met, he is just the coolest and one of the most authentic educators out there in the photography world! To be have been able to be two of the attendees of his first workshop was so humbling and so mind blowing and so motivating all in one big ball of swag.

The Experience

His workshop, the Anchored Workshop is an intimate workshop experience. We had 15 people all under the roof of one Airbnb about 40 minutes north of Charlotte on Norman Lake. It was a super amazing and chill location to learn at, and we spent basically 4 straight days not only with the other attendees. But one of the best parts is that Devin himself stayed at the house with us!

Before I go into the content and what we got out of it experience wise, we have to shout our 3 BIG A** kudos!

  • First, to Devin’s gorge wife, Kathryn. She was an amazing hostess, took care of us like we were all family from the start, and when we suddenly found ourselves out of TP (thanks for not stocking up Air B&B lady!) she made a late night run and saved the day! <3
  • Second, to Demi, she is Anchor & Veils Client Experience Specialist. She helped organize everything for the shoots and was our main point of contact leading up to the workshop! She is so freaking outgoing and sweet as can be we loved getting to know her! <3
  • Third, to Jenna + Michael, industry friends to Kathryn + Devin. They helped everything run smoothly, picked our butts up from the airport, was on the mini critique panel, and just all around so encouraging and helpful!

Now onto the juicy stuff, we all know the big Q literally EVERYONE asks about any workshop,

Was it worth the $$$$$?!

We would say 100000000X’s over.

Hands down.

Mic drop.

Just kidding guys there’s more than that! (we had you going there though right?!)

It was worth every damn penny, you have zero excuse if he has a workshop to go. We saved for a year, and flew from the other side of the country to go, and will never regret a single second or sacrifice we made to do it.

What did we learn from the Anchored Workshop?

So basically besides it being an amazing community experience with all of us bunking together, Devin was there for us all FREAKING DAY. He was an open book, would answer any of your questions, help you on something you needed help with.

Then there were the more “main sessions” of the days. We talked on different topics ranging from; SEO, Instagram and adds, to editing and photoshop, to shooting, to website and portfolio critiques, guys we could go on, it was so in depth, and so much was covered.

We left with 8 pages of notes, and an arsenal of new wisdom for our businesses. We are so excited to be implementing all of these new techniques and back end things to our business so we can give every J+R Couple the most amazing experience out there while giving them bold and authentic images that not only themselves, but their children and grandchildren will treasure for the rest of their lives.

Not once did Devin tell us “oh I won’t answer that, or that’s something you would have to pay extra for”. He invested in us completely, and guys you can feel how much his desire to help everyone else is.

We have NEVER experienced a workshop that was better than the Anchored Workshop, and really we don’t know if we will even bother ever trying to find it if there is.

10/10 for us.

We will be forever grateful for this experience and time we have shared in community with these other photographers while learning from Devin.
