As an educator-turned-photographer, teaching and supporting others is a fundamental part of my being. After a decade in in the classroom, I transitioned to wedding photography. Now, with twelve years in business as a wedding photographer and well over 100 weddings photographed, I have a a plethora of experience to share. And I want to do just that, so you can avoid the mistakes I made as you build a sustainable business that supports a life you love.
Over the years I've helped wedding industry professionals set goals and develop strategic action plans, raise their prices and sell more persuasively, curate an elevated client experience to attract a higher-end clientele, build a portfolio from scratch, and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a few specific answers, want resources to take your business to the next level, or need a mentor to help you set and achieve goals in an ongoing relationship, there is something here that can help you move your business forward. And if you're a photographer - there are some specific resources on all things photography waiting for you, too!

My goal for every speaking appearance I make and podcast interview I give is to provide tangible tips and implementable strategies that will help wedding pros move the needle in their business. Each talk is crafted with best educational practices in mind to ensure that attendees are engaged throughout and leave inspired. Interactive sessions encourage attendees to participate, think deeply, and challenge their own understandings in order to grow. From regional chapter meetings, to virtual summits and webinars, to taking the stage at a national conference, I love the opportunity to share tips and strategies learned from over a decade in the wedding industry.
I've put together a collection of free and paid resources that cover a variety of important topics for anyone starting, growing, or refining their wedding business. For example, check out the freebie that shares five ways to fill your calendar as a new wedding professional. Or, invest in paid resources like the Wedding Client Experience Academy, where you'll be guided step-by-step through eight lessons that will allow you to elevate and streamline your business with a client-centered approach. Get education you can trust from an industry veteran - whether it's a free download, a digital blueprint, or my four-week drip email course.
COMING SOON! This youtube channel is a passion project that will allow me to share strategies, tips, and expertise with a broad audience of new wedding industry professionals. I've read countless business books, taken courses and workshops, and invested thousands in education over the years. It's time to pay it forward for the wedding pros coming up in the industry. Like everything else I create, the videos will share actionable and easy-to-implement strategies. I'll dive into topics related to branding, client experience, workflows and systems, booking clients, onboarding and off-boarding clients, and so much more. Videos will come out twice a month - be sure to subscribe to so you don't miss the latest.
