“So what’s a mini class?” Glad you asked! A mini class is a term we made up for our 1 on 1 classes that we’ve designed to cover off on one specific topic for two hours. This allows us to pinpoint those areas you may struggle with the most. The curriculum for each topic will give full context from beginning to end. Each 2hr mini class is $500. We have several courses ranging from: Pricing, Social Media Marketing, SEO, Branding, Natural Lighting, Flash Lighting, Manual Shooting, Editing, Workflow, Productivity, Photography 101, etc. All mini classes are available in studio or online through Skype.

Ask us anything you want! Our Mentoring Sessions are perfect for photographers who are just getting started or even those well seasoned pro’s who need a refresher. We realize that every photographer’s level of experience, business and clientele is totally different. So we do our best to understand your needs and give you real answers. To kick things off we have a brief questionnaire to send your way to better gauge what it is you’re looking to learn. Contact us to get things started. We offer hourly sessions (over coffee or Skype), half-day sessions and even full-day sessions. We can even plan a mini shoot if you want. All mentoring sessions include a portfolio review. Mentoring sessions begin at $250/hr. Discounted rates for all half-day and full-day sessions. Available upon request.

Get ready to have a good time! We offer full-day workshops and group sessions at discounted rates. Come hang out with us and a bunch of other neato photographers. By the end of the day your head will literally explode with information and resources. We’ll cover off on everything we know about photography and how to run your wedding photography business from: pricing, marketing, advertising, business planning, design, brand development, determining a target market, client communication, customer service, streamlining workflow, editing, natural lighting, off-camera lighting, composition, exposure, shooting in full manual, photo booths, print sales, gear and even do some portfolio reviews. Workshop tickets are $750 per individual. Studio partners or spouses are an additional $500. For a detailed list of our quarterly workshop schedule fill out the contact form.
