So, You Wanna Shoot Weddings?

**UPDATE:  The class is full!  Thanks to everyone who has registered to attend!  We’re looking forward to spending the day with you all!**

Over the past 5 years, we’ve watched our wedding photography business grow from a part-time side-job into a full-fledged career. Along with that growth have come plenty of struggles, but we’ve also been blessed with excitement, companionship, and creativity in a way we never could have imagined.

We cannot even begin to describe the number of e-mails we receive from photographers who, like we were 5 years ago, are building a business from the ground up.

We wish there were enough days in the year to accept all the requests for coffees and lunches, but there are only the two of us and, alas, work calls.

This July, we’re excited to announce that we will open our home to a handful of photographers to share the ups and downs of our own journey, and to pass on some of the hard-won knowledge that we would have loved to have had when we first began.  Keep reading for all the details!

When: 
Sunday, July 12, 2009
8am – Late Evening/Whenever  **NEW TIME!!**

Where:
Our Loft in Grant Park – Atlanta, GA

How Much:
$275 per person
or
$375 per 2-person studio team (This is specifically intended for couple-run businesses. Please, no tag-along friends or part-time assistants.)

 

This will benefit you if you have questions about:

Getting started. (You know how to shoot, but you’re clueless about how to build a wedding portfolio. There ARE ways to begin without relying on other pros to give you assisting gigs — trust us, we did it.)

Keeping organized. (Having all your ducks in a row is key to maintaining a business in the long run. Contracts, forms, invoices… we’ll share the stuff we use and help you create your own.)

Shooting. (We’re not geniuses. But we CAN share some helpful shooting tips that we wish we’d known when we first started. We’ll have a couple on site to act as our models for the day, so bring your cameras! We’ll also make sure each photographer goes home with a headshot.)

Editing. (In our experience, editing can be the bane of a photographer’s existence. We’ll walk you through the basics, and share our methods for creating the perfect end-product for your client in a timely manner.)

Basic Branding & Marketing + Photoshop. (When you’re starting off, you might not be able to spend a fortune on a graphic designer. We will share simple lessons on creating your own basic marketing materials as well as showing off some of our favorite post-production techniques. You’ll make the most of this if you bring a laptop with Photoshop installed, but it’s not required.)

  1. I was curious if you were going to offer a similar class (possibly for those looking to advance their wedding & photography business) in 2010?! I would attend!
