HERE'S A TASTE OF WHAT WE'LL BE COVERING
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. YOU’VE GOT A DREAM. LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN
Starting and successfully running a photography business isn’t easy, but it’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives. We’ll be sharing with you what worked for us (and what definitely didn’t work) in the first phases of our business. We want to give you guys the road map we wish we had in the beginning!
ATTRACT (AND BOOK) THE PERFECT COUPLES FOR YOU, YOUR STYLE AND YOUR BUSINESS
Booking clients is a good thing, but booking THE RIGHT clients is priceless; they help move your photography business forward, they inspire you, they make you WANT to go that extra mile and give it 110%! We’ll show you how to make it easier to find those perfect couples (and for them to find you).
SO MR AND MISS RIGHT SENT YOU AN EMAIL…NOW WHAT?
From the initial reply to the first meeting, to the contracts and booking them in your calendar. We’ll cover how to wow your clients from the get-go and talk about the studio management software that makes it all a breeze.
IT’S TIME FOR THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION!
Engagement sessions are an essential part of our couples wedding photography experience. We’ll go over how to make the very most of this session and what it takes to bring your couples excitement for their wedding photos to the max.
PRE-WEDDING // THE GEAR
We’ll talk through and demonstrate every essential piece of gear we bring to a wedding. From lenses, cameras, flashes, ExpoDiscs to sewing kits and breath mints -- there’s a good reason for everything we lug around in our bags!
PRE-WEDDING // THE PLAN
Planning a relaxed, photo-friendly wedding day with your couple is pretty darn important if you ask us. If your couple can have a wonderful, fun-filled, easy-going day that also gives you the time to do what you do best, it just doesn’t get much better than that! Now’s the time to learn how to lock in a great timeline that works great for everyone involved.
PRE-WEDDING // THE INSPIRATION
To create great work, you’ve got to be inspired. Learn to build into what inspires you.
GRAB YOUR CAMERA. LETS GO.
Shoot along side us and learn how we use light, lines and emotion to bring out the full beauty of a wedding day. This will be a fun, relaxed engagement style photo session that covers people and detail photography.
YOU ROCKED IT OUT ON THE WEDDING DAY! NOW LETS GET TO WORK…
Without a well thought-out, streamlined post-production workflow you could find yourself spending more hours in front of a computer screen than anything else…and that’s not very much fun.
Get that wedding imported, edited, blogged and processed in no time, while still adhering to your studios high standards. Wow your clients with fast turn around times and get your life back.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ALBUM
The couples story is told through a beautiful, unique, hand crafted album that becomes the centrepiece of their home. It’s a family heirloom. We’ll go through our photo selection and design process and show you why it is our favourite and most rewarding part of our wedding workflow.
THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
It’s so much fun to see the couples whose weddings we shot the year before, now attending this years wedding as guests. You did a great job shooting their big day…and they told their friends! Word of mouth and referrals are by far the strongest and most effective form of advertising out there. We'll show you how to maximize your reach.
