One Swell Day // a style-defining, business-developing + sanity-encouraging wedding photography workshop

georgetown wedding portrait3



(*potentially) July/August | SCOTLAND + LONDON <– drop a line if interested!

I just did the math and I’m somehow 8 (!) years in since shooting my first wedding. It’s hard to remember what life was like before diving into this crazy/wonderful world, and it adds value to my experiences every time I can help someone else on their way. I’m so happy to get to host a few more workshops and I hope all the photographers who join us leave with a world of new ideas and clarity for their next steps forward.

For everyone joining we’ll do some corresponding beforehand with some questions and projects to make the experience more personal to you, and I’m limiting the number of people so it’ll stay a cozy little group. We’ll start the first day by meeting for dinner to share a meal and stories together, and the following morning have an 8hr day someplace beautiful (+ thoroughly caffeinated) to talk through how to make your art and business your own.

Main topics –

– creativity + inspiration + developing your individual photography style
– applying that to the everyday practicalities of running a business
– the thought process behind how I shoot
– finding + caring for perfect clients
– editing + workflow
– all the advice in my brain
– all the questions in yours

Investment is $500 with dinner and lunch on me.



Those are some great topics and I hope you have a wonderful time teaching everyone!

this sounds amazing! I wish I were closer so i could join you!

This sounds like just what i’d need. such a shame i live so far :(

That’s great you are getting to do these workshops! When your at the Lafayette workshop, make sure to stop by Indy. It’s where we love and it’s a great city!
