Grow your photography business
With years of experience in the wedding and elopement industry, we are uniquely qualified to help you grow your photography business into everything you’ve dreamt it to be. We have grown our business into a six-figure company with multiple employees, and consistently book packages over 5k. Our goal for our workshop is not to just set up epic shoots for content (although we’ve got that too). Our objective is to teach you how we’ve grown our company, and give you the tools to skyrocket your business. So much planning and preparation has gone into this workshop. We’ve waited over a year to launch so that we knew we were fully prepared to host and educate new and seasoned photographers alike. We have 3 styled shoots and 5 educational sessions planned to teach you all we know in our epic weekend workshop! We’re excited to meet you!
IT'S WORTH THE INVESTMENT
BOOKING ONE ELOPEMENT CAN PAY FOR THE WORKSHOP
Our starting elopement package is currently $5200. Even if you charged HALF of that, booking one elopement will pay for this workshop.
But why stop there? Our goal for this workshop is to get you started on the right track to book not just one elopement, but to fill your calendar with ideal clients who are eloping in amazing places and willing to pay a high-ticket price.
Can we teach EVERYTHING in this workshop? No, of course not.
But we are confident that the strategies we’ll dive into – combined with the stunning images you’ll add to your portfolio – will enable you to at the very least book enough elopements to pay for this workshop, and likely double/triple your investment (or quadruple, quintuple, sextuple… you get the picture).
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
We have an epic sunset hike (moderate difficulty) planned in the Lake George area for one of our three styled shoots. We will have a dress provided by our favorite bridal boutique in the area (Something Bleu Bridal) and will also hike with some rental decor from Adirondack Boho Co. to style this elopement session. During the shoot, we will allot time for each photographer to pose our models and be the “lead photographer” for a few minutes to make sure all our attendees get an equal amount of shooting time. Estimated Hiking Time: 3.5 hours Estimated Shoot Duration: 2 hours
Our studio is very close to Lake George, so we have an early sunrise styled elopement planned for the morning. We will have a dress provided by our favorite dress company in the area (Something Bleu Bridal) and will also have rentals from Adirondack Boho Co. to style this elopement session. During the shoot, we will allot time for each photographer to pose our models and be the “lead photographer” for a few minutes to make sure all our attendees get an equal amount of shooting time. Estimated Shoot Duration: 2 hours
We’ve decorated our studio with in-home sessions in mind. We have a living room, bedroom, and fun floral backdrop set up for a cozy in-home engagement session. During the shoot, we will allot time for each photographer to pose our models and be the “lead photographer” for a few minutes to make sure all our attendees get an equal amount of shooting time. Estimated Shoot Duration: 1-2 hours
ONLY 15 SPOTS AVAILABLE
Because our desire is to be extremely hands-on with our workshop attendees, we are limiting available spots to 15 people, even though we have nearly 100 people signed up on our waiting list.
We want you to get as much out of our workshop as possible. This is not a cash-grab for us. We truly want everyone who attends to leave feeling prepared to grow their photography business. We also want to be available after our workshop to follow up with attendees and answer any questions they may have after our workshop has ended, which we wouldn’t be able to do if there were dozens of attendees. If you would like to be one of those 15 people, please sign up ASAP. We would LOVE to have you, and we absolutely cannot wait to meet you.
Note: this schedule is tentative. The official schedule will be sent to attendees at least a month prior to the workshop.
