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 worksop! 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?

STYLED SHOOTS

Mountaintop elopement styled photoshoot in Lake George, NY in the Adirondacks mood board

MOUNTAINTOP ELOPEMENT

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

Lakefront elopement styled shoot in Lake George, NY in the Adirondacks by The Pinckards

LAKEFRONT ELOPEMENT

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

In-home engagement styled photoshoot session mood board in Queensbury, NY

IN-HOME ENGAGEMENT

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

EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS

  • Social Media Strategy

    With over 52K followers on Instagram, 45k on Pinterest, 25K on Tiktok, and 5k on Facebook, we consider ourselves qualified to teach you the strategies that we have used to grow our following across all social media platforms. When it comes to photography, social media is one of the most helpful (and free) ways to book clients. In this session, we will teach you strategies to grow your followers + engagement on social media that, most importantly, will turn into booking more clients.

  • Enhancing Your Client Experience

    Your client experience is just as important as the photos you deliver to them. We will teach you what we do to enhance our client’s experience with us, as well as leave some time to brainstorm as a group other things that we can all implement into our booking processes.

  • Search Engine Optimization

    Search engine optimization (SEO for short) is one of the most vital parts of your photography business, and one that is so often overlooked by the industry. In this session, we will teach you how we’ve ranked on the first pages of Google, how our clients are able to find us over our competition, and also writing & website strategies that have grown us to where we are today.

  • Posing & Creativity

    We are known for our creative poses + double exposures/composites. In this lesson, we will go over our process for double exposures, as well as how we pose our couples, capture emotion, and continually come up with new and exciting ideas to avoid artistic burnout. We will then utilize those tips during all of our styled shoots.

  • TBD (what do you want to learn?)

    We would love to prepare an educational session that the majority of our workshop attendees would like! Have an idea or thought of something that we aren’t teaching yet? Send us your ideas and we’ll choose what the top suggestion is for our final class!

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. 

FAQ

One meal will be provided, but other than that, attendees are responsible for their own food, lodging, and transportation. We will try to get a group rate at a local hotel if possible to alleviate the cost.

Definitely not! Whether you're local to the Adirondacks or coming from across the country, we'd love to have you!

It's hard to say for sure, but we had dozens of people on our waiting list & only 15 spots are available. We would definitely recommend reserving a spot ASAP!
