"A smart person learns from his own mistakes, but a wise person learns from others mistakes!"

Anyone who knows us knows that we are passionate about photography, business and helping others to live they life they want and enjoy the job of their dreams. In the photography industry, there is an interesting distinction between really good photographers who aren't the best business people or really good business people who aren't the best photographers. We want to help bridge that gap and think that we can! With extensive boot-strap business experience we think we have the knowledge and experience to teach others how to do the same!

In our first 4 years of business we were nominated for Rangefinders rising top 30 wedding photographers in the world twice and booking 40 weddings a year between $6,000-$10,000
