Let's start at the very beginning. You can't shoot weddings unless you have equipment. Choosing the right gear is important because it can either make or break your wedding images. I'll share with you all of the gear that I use to capture gorgeous images and make my job as easy as possible.
I've developed an equipment list that streamlines my workflow. From cameras, to flashes, to editing softwares, this course will cover all of your questions about what to use.
I'm covering everything from branding and designing your website to how to market that same business and website on social media and through creating connections with others in the industry. Lastly, I'm giving you an inside scoop at our entire workflow and what we do on every wedding from start to finish. There's also a 50% off code for your first year of HoneyBook. We couldn't run our business without it!
I believe experience is the best teacher. On the job training is really how I learned. I was fortunate enough to have people willing to let me experiment during their wedding or engagement. Why? I don't know why they let me do that. I know there are a lot of you wanting to photograph your first wedding, but don't currently have the opportunity to do so. That's why this course is awesome!
I'm taking you behind the scenes through a full wedding day. You'll learn how we style details, photograph the dress, the getting ready, 1st look, portraits, bridal party, family, the ceremony and the reception. There's even a segment for engagement sessions. You'll watch how we interact with our couples and learn how process throughout the course.
I'm going to walk you through how I select my photos, my editing process and workflow, and then how I upload and deliver them to my clients. I'll share with you all of the softwares I'm using to cull, edit, and deliver along with what I use to design albums and blog all of my sessions.
There are modules that include how to edit weddings in 3 hours and why you should consider outsourcing. There's loads of goodness here and I think it'll really speed up your editing process!
I'll also cover random things you might not have thought to do. Those videos include:
- Why Educating Your Clients Makes Your Life Easier
- How To Blow Your Client's Minds
- How We Surprise Our Clients
- How To Not Suck At Second Shooting
- Second Shooting Live Wedding
Loads of goodness here and things that I think will really take your wedding photography business to the next level.
I know how difficult it is to start. You're wondering where to begin, what software to purchase, what to do next and it's a whirlwind of low confidence and comparing yourself to all of your favorite wedding photographers who are crushing it.
Wanna' know a secret? They started where you are right now! We all have to start somewhere. I want this course to essentially be a rocket launcher that propels you to the front of the pack and gives you all the secrets you need to know to successfully run a wedding photography business.
I'm a film school drop out who pursued wedding photography as a full time career. I've grown that business with my wife, Steph, to a 6-figure business that shoots 25-30 weddings a year at an average of $5,000+ per wedding. I live in the Philly suburbs of Pennsylvania with my wife, Steph, and our noisy, yet playful boxer mix, Chance. I'm also a co-host of the Racking Focus Podcast, a movie review show that I run with my father-in-law.
