In any business, one of the most important elements is branding. And, don't worry, we're talking about more than just your logo and fonts in this workshop. Branding goes beyond the colors on your website. As Seth Godin says, "A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another." So, with that said, in this workshop, you'll learn exactly how to brand yourself so that your ideal client is choosing to book and work with you!

Photography is more than just getting a good camera and lenses. It's more than just learning how to work with light or how to edit your photos in post. At the core, photography is capturing and telling a story. In this workshop, you'll learn from top photographers the art of story telling. You'll walk away from this workshop, not only inspired, but armed with practical tools and knowledge on how to work with your clients to uncover their story, so that you can deliver them more than just a gallery of images— but, images that capture memories, moments, and ultimately, tell a piece of their story.

I’ve been a photographer for 5 years now and I’ve explored almost every sub-genre of this profession. In this short journey thus far I’ve realized that the only thing that can make my heart skip a beat, put a smile on my face, and bring a tear to my eye is capturing love stories. I view my job as not a documentor, but a keeper of time. The thought of the couple sharing these photos 20, 30, 40 years from now and feeling like it was just yesterday when their love was so fresh simply gives me goosebumps.

Erika GreenE

One of my biggest passions in life is the great outdoors. Over the years, I’ve found a way to incorporate that passion into all the of the weddings and sessions that i shoot. I absolutely love taking my couples to incredible spots away from the world where I can genuinely capture their relationship and love for each other. My biggest focus is giving an amazing experience. For me, it’s not about just taking pretty photos, but creating an unforgettable memory for all of my couples.

My name is Andy and I'm a wedding/portrait photographer residing in Northern Louisiana. My passion is my family. I married the most beautiful woman and she changed my life forever. There's something about love that changes your entire way of thinking and your way of seeing the world. I believe that your photographs are one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. To capture it in the most raw and natural way possible is 100% my goal.
