For Photographers

Beautiful bouquet held by bride


When I first decided to open a photography business, finding someone to help me was pretty much impossible. Other photographers were so secretive and judgmental. I had to learn everything those first few years by hard work, trial and error, and by making a lot of mistakes. Over the years I was fortunate to meet and learn from some incredible photographers, though, and I’m forever grateful for them! I’m a true believer in community over competition- there’s plenty of room for all of us in the industry, and the key is finding your voice and figuring out what makes you amazingly, well…YOU!

1:1 Mentoring

Mentoring for wedding & couples photographers. We’ll set up a video meeting, or you can come to my house. Ask me anything- I’m an open book!

Some things I love to teach:

– branding your business + finding the right clients
– finding your style + what makes you unique in the industry
– making your website irresistible
– pricing yourself for long-term success
– posing/directing couples
– emotional storytelling at weddings
– workflow practices for sustained work/life balance
-anything else you want to know about!

  • It helps if you are comfortable using your camera in manual mode, however this could always be a topic of learning! I recommend you be able to comfortably use your camera in manual mode before tackling any of the other things I can teach you.
  • I’m open to teaching anyone at any stage in their photography career. However, some of the topics are best taught once you have a good understanding of other topics, so I might recommend learning about those first. Think of building your business like building a house- you have to start with the foundation, then the framing, then the basic structures, then the finishing touches.

Online Mentoring

New for 2019, I’m offering a fun, exciting way to mentor with me! It’s online mentoring in a group setting, where you can post questions for me, ask me to critique your images and/or website, and interact with other photographers who are also mentoring with me. It’s a supportive, inclusive community and you can post as much and as often as you’d like! I frequently post content, tips, and advice to get your wheels turning. Think of it like 24-hour support and learning. The possibilities are endless!

Monthly subscription (feel free to end at any time) is just $39/month! Contact me if you’d like to get started!
