And, as a bonus, that special winner is going to be able to gift a friend 50% off their ticket! Who doesn’t want to give your best friend a $1000 Christmas gift!

Sugar & Cloth Weddings Brides Magazine| Choosing a wedding photographer will be one of the most important decisions + a FREE guide on what to do before hiring a wedding photographer!

This workshop will help you go from an aspiring photographer to a total boss! Or maybe you already have that business up and running but you feel like you are just winging it! You are sick of pinning all the things on Pinterest to try to teach yourself how to market, how to sell, how to shoot, #allthethings!

Before the workshop, we’ll work together to tailor the content specifically for you. At the workshop, you get 48 hours of jam-packed education + helpful and intentional 1-on-1 breakout sessions!

After the workshop, we don’t just send you on your way, we will check in and make sure you are actually implementing what you’ve learned.

We will show you exactly how we shoot, how we run our 6-figure business, how we grew our team, how we added video and so much more. Ask us anything! We are open books about everything from pricing to what it’s really like to work with your husband! ; P

We will guide you and help you wherever you are in your journey right now, we will walk with you and follow up with you.

And mostly we will encourage you! The fact you’re even thinking about making this investment in your business just shows you have what it takes to make this dream work!
