And you weren't meant to do this alone

Running a successful photography business takes a lot of hard work

The struggle is real

Does any of this sound familiar?

You're sick and tired of:
  • not booking your calendar with dream weddings and clients
  • offering discounts and under valuing your art and business
  • not knowing how to stand out in a saturated market
  • watching other photographers book dream weddings at incredible destinations while you're still at home wishing that was you
  • not having a website with content that represents the type of work you want to do
  • feeling alone in the photography industry wishing you had co-workers and a community
  • feeling like you've got no strategy to market and book new clients
  • feeling burnt out and craving better balance in your life

You have big goals and dreams for your business, but you feel overwhelmed and not sure how to get there

Imagine if you could make 2024 the year that you....

build a brand strategy that attracts your dream clients and weddings


create a website and instagram marketing strategy that gets you more inquires



automate your processes and workflows to create more balance in your life



create content that stands out and helps you book more destination and elopements



fully book your calendar with higher paying clients 



exceed your income goals and can pay yourself a consistent salary



build incredible relationships with other photographers who have your back

finally take that next step and stop feeling stuck in your business


If this all sounds great,
we've got something for you!

Date: February 19-22nd
Location: Joshua Tree, CA
Lodging: A STUNNING Airbnb (what a vibe)

TAKE YOUR SHOT 
WORKSHOP

Introducing...

A workshop for photographers who want to grow their business, dive deep into community, level up their content for their portfolio through styled shoots, and walk into 2024 with a community of other creatives here to support them and their goals.

A different approach to workshops

This workshop is all about empowering and inspiring you in your photography business. The space is limited to ten people because we really value community and going deep with you and your business. Walk away feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to take on this next year with purpose and vision! You'll also walk away with new business friends who can cheer you on as we head into the next season!

Intentions for the Workshop

Throughout the workshop, we are hosting a mix of group coaching, styled shoots, and time for relaxation. The goal is for the workshop to be intentional and valuable. As your hosts, we are open books and want to dive into your business and you can ask us anything and we will not hold back. We understand that structure is important and beautiful, but as creatives we also love flexibility. With that we’ll have free time throughout each day to allow you space to process, reflect, refresh, and take everything in. Whether you want to hang out, ask your burning business questions, or want to chill in the hot tub, we are here for it! We want you to walk away feeling empowered and inspired in your business and enjoy the community building!

Meet your hosts!

Hey there, we're Luke and Halle and we are SO glad you're here! We are a husband and wife photo and video duo and we have been shooting together since 2016! We are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and have built a business that allows us to travel while serving couples who we love working with. Having built a six-figure business from the ground up, we know what it's like to feel isolated and overwhelmed. Community makes all the difference and our goal with this workshop is to empower and inspire you in your business, build community, and walk away with a vision and strategy for your business. We want this next year to be your best one yet, and we cannot wait to cheer you and and kickstart your year with you!
