CLASS STYLE & REAL WEDDING CONTENT
The academy classes are filmed both in a classroom setting, as well as real examples of shooting couples on location and even at a real wedding!
COMMUNITY TO BUILD YOU UP!
One of our student's favorite part is the community of photograpers they become a part of. The other students will challenge you, build you up, and give advice when you need it!
CAN YOU RELATE TO ANY OF THESE?
"I don't know if my pricing is set up in a way to attract couples and make me the money I deserve or need"
"I wonder if there is a better way to run a meeting to lead to more bookings"
"I'd love to show up to a wedding day 100% confident with my settings, posing and lighting!"
"I don't understand why other photographers book more weddings than me and at a higher price"
"I wish I knew how to shoot better in a dark reception. I'm scared that my images won't turn out well"
A lot of photographers are making things up as they go, spending time and money on the wrong things.
The instructors at The Academy spent years refining their businesses to the successful levels they are at today and they share all of their secrets to what works best for them in their courses!
If you are looking to be a successful full-time wedding photographer this is probably the best educational resource out there. The amount of information covered, partnered with the ability to go at your own pace, is really second to none when it comes to this type of education in our field. I love that all of the instructors are approachable and open with what has worked for them. The facebook group associated with the Academy is probably one of the best, most encouraging and helpful groups I have been a part of. If you are looking to increase bookings, increase pricing and get clients who are a dream to work with, this is the complete package...exactly what you need!
BEFORE: $1,500 average booking
AFTER: $4,000 average booking

The greatest difference in my business and shooting since joining The Academy has been being more confident because I now have the knowledge to be better!
I love how all of our instructors are just so genuine. It really is fun to be a part of this group, of not only them, but the peers and others out there that are so willing to help each other!!!

Here is a quick update on how life has been after the academy! I graduated from the Academy over a year ago and my business has continued to grow. last year we photographed 40 weddings! If we do this right, each year snowballs into the next building momentum. This is a great time of year to cast goals and vision for yourself and your business! The academy really helped me fine tune a lot in our business!
"I have learned so much from the Academy!!! Not only from posing, lighting and image composition, but also how to show a moment in an image that really means something and connects with people! I never would have been able to shoot how I do now. I'm still growing and learning with the Academy and I love it!"
- Michelle Hoffman
The courses at the Academy are comprehensive video classes that will help you master your craft and business. Each course contains 7-10 hours of video instruction, along with practical action steps to help you understand and implement the material.
There are 4 business based courses and 4 shooting based courses:
We've put in a lot of time and jam-packed this program with as much value as we could. We are confident that you will love it and see huge changes in your business. We've seen so much growth in our students over the past years, and we want that for you as well!
Best case scenario - You achieve your goals and build the business of your dreams faster than you ever could have on your own.
Worst case scenario - You find that things aren't working out for you and you get your money back, PLUS you get to keep the friends you've made!
"I'm not sure I can afford this program, how do I know if it's worth it?"
We fully understand that this program is an investment, but the VALUE of this program is far greater than the price. The results we have seen in our students has been remarkable.
Josiah & Stephanie Blizzard were shooting 11 weddings per year at an average of $1,500.
In 2015, they invested in the complete program and by 2016 were booking 25+ weddings at an average of $3,250. That one-time investment turned into a difference of $64,750 of income over 1 year.
I would argue that you can't afford NOT to enroll in this program!
