If you’ve chosen to build your photography career around wedding photography, then you must agree that weddings can be beautiful events to witness. You likely already have invested in cameras, lenses, technical training, and some practice. And yet, while enthusiasm, gear, and technical skill are prerequisites for a wedding photographer, other things you need to succeed are practice, feedback, watching other photographers in action.

I know because that is how I started, too. 10 years ago, I started out with gear and ambition, some training, and lots of potential. But without other photographers, coaches, and mentors to help me learn, I never would have been able to build a successful business. So now, I offering mentorship and coaching to wedding photographers with less than 3 years of professional experience who have solid technical skills and are looking to improve their photography and growing their businesses.

Here’s what you get:

– A one-hour review of your current body of work and an open ended discussion about where you are in your career and where you’d like to go.

– The opportunity to come second shoot along with me at a wedding where you can practice implementing some of the feedback you received during your portfolio review and watch how I approach making similar photos. You’ll also gain skills to create a more positive experience for your clients and manage the logistics of a busy wedding day.

– Another one-hour review of your photos from the event we photographed together, to see how you implemented the feedback and what you can continue to work on.

– A final open ended discussion where I can offer feedback on anything from marketing, sales, pricing, your website, social media, networking, client management, invoicing, contracts, and products – whatever you need help with!
