Revealing the Narrative
At the end of the day, our #1 goal is to ignite the belief that wedding photographers can be creatively fulfilled AND financially fulfilled, while also living a life they enjoy. We’ve kept you in mind while creating this course and won’t waste a moment of your time. We give you clear action items throughout the course and a roadmap to meet your goals.
These 9 modules truly cover it all, showing you what the moment-driven approach can offer your art and your photography business.
First, we start with the photography itself, helping you master the art of the moment to tell truly captivating stories.
Next, we’ll discuss the ins and outs of elevating your business as a wedding photographer, from finding your ideal client to determining your price point.
And lastly, we’ll provide you with some tried and true ways to market your business media to help gain inquiries and turn those into a sustainable, scalable business.
Each module also comes with its own bonus material as well as access to a supportive community.
Through all these lessons, we do more than share our experiences; we give you real, actionable steps you can take today to start creating the business – and lifestyle – you always wanted.

“There was something new to learn about storytelling, choosing the right client, workflow, pricing, and marketing/selling - you girls thought of EVERY detail! I liked the way that the course was self-paced -- I could learn the content during the week when I had time. But at the same time, there were gentle deadlines where we checked in on our goals for the week. This was a perfect balance for me -- low stress but gentle nudges to get stuff done! Within weeks of taking the course and implementing what I learned I was able to double the amount of weddings booked - and they were all my ideal clients. Since completing RTN, I have been able to double what I charge - all while being excited about my work again.”
There are two ways to take the course...
1. The RTN Course
We want to give you the best of both worlds. You can go through the course at a pace that works for you and also avail of a community, that is right where you are, the whole way through.

Along with lifetime access to the content, group discussions and feedback, you’ll have 4 group coaching calls throughout the course so you can ask more about the photography, client experience, business and anything else you might need.
"Revealing the Narrative gave me the confidence and tools to restructure my packages and raise my prices. I have already seen the benefit of that this year! I’m only half way through the season and have already made more money than I did in all of last year!”

"The course forced me to take a good hard look at how I was presenting myself and how I wanted to be presenting myself. I did make some significant changes and they have brought me closer to my goal. The main result for me was completely crossing over to Wedding Photojournalism, reflecting that on my website and social, and now getting inquires from people seeking out that style!
