Why?

This wedding workshop is for photographers who want to learn an easier approach to weddings, for photographers who might be getting burned out or feel creatively stale, for photographers want to book better clients, be more confident and spend less time editing photos.

I will open up my entire business to you, from financial reports to client email templates and everything in between.

Part 1: The Business

During the first part of the workshop, we’ll talk about everything and anything dealing with the business side of wedding photography. Some of the topics will include the following, but realistically no topic is off limits.

Pricing

Branding
Defining your brand and what it means to you and to your clients
Marketing
How to market, where to market and what kind of marketing has the most impact in Chicago
Networking

Contracts

Part 2: PHOTOGRAPHY / EDITING / POSING

We’ll go through all the topics listed below and we’ll do an engagement session with a real couple, not models.

Live Shoot & Posing
Authentic posing that will look great and natural while making sure your couples have a great experience with you
Composition
What makes certain photos feel so good and others just wrong? Let's understand what good composition is and then break the rules
Editing
Don't spend 40+ hours per wedding - my shooting and editing workflow significantly cuts down on time spent in front of a computer
Workflow
I'll show you the importance of networking and identify important circles to join
Camera Settings
Are you still on auto? Let's get out of there - I'll show you why manual everything is easy
Chicago Logistics
We're not in Big Sur - we're in Chicago and have an insane amount of traffic, weather that changes every 5 minutes and more...
Trends vs Reality
Let's talk about why you need to stop buying trendy presets and start forging real relationships with your couples
Shooting Purposefully
We'll talk about how to shoot with purpose and how this impacts everything you do. Stop spraying and praying.
