About Mystic Seminars

In 2005 Mystic Seminars was born. Having been started in Connecticut, Walter wanted to create a gathering for wedding photographers to share and network. At the time, there was no other outlet to do so that was tailored just for wedding photographers. And then it grew, becoming one of the most respected conferences of its kind. A conference where the speakers, attendees and sponsors interact on the same level. Where real and meaningful connections are made. Where everyone involved brings inspiration forward. Speakers that will make you laugh, cry, think, and have a positive effect on your life and business. A place where you can make life long friends. A conference where you can feel like you belong. Last year saw a change; Mystic Seminars hit the road and relocated to Portland Oregon! And we couldn’t be happier! Portland is an amazing city and we are happy to now call it our home. Mystic Seminars 2016 is also seeing a new change, Walter partnered with Brianna of the last forty percent to bring the first ever boudoir conference of its kind. Mystic Boudoir will be held the two days prior to Mystic Seminars. Mystic Boudoir is a completely separate conference. So if you want to go see wedding photographers speak, click on the link below for weddings to order your seat. If you want to see boudoir photographers speak, click on the boudoir conference link below. And if you want to go to both, you can! Committed to elevating both the wedding and boudoir industry, Walter and Brianna are committed to keep the same quality education, and community feeling that Mystic Seminars has enjoyed for the last decade. It will continue to bring leaders in the industry, great photographers, business minds, and talented up and comers to its stage. Helping these industries become the best that they can be is Mystic’s purpose. Having all of you along for the ride makes it just that much more sweeter.
