Photographer Tips



As a wedding photographer, print sales are easily my favorite income stream. With these sales, I can make money in my sleep! What’s not to love about that? It wasn’t always like this, though. Several years ago, I relied on a single income stream from photographing weddings. I wasn’t taking advantage of all the ways […]

The Steps To Generate More Revenue With Print Sales As a Photographer


As a wedding photographer, I’m constantly working with new clients who have just started their families. They may begin their journey as a family of two (or three or four if you count fur babies!), but often, new additions to the family are just down the road. The arrival of a newborn opens up a […]

2. Diversify Your Photography Income With Portrait Sessions


Incorporating wedding album sales into my business model has been the best decision I’ve ever made for my photography business.

Year In Review for 2022 And Goal Setting For 2023 - Free workbook for wedding photographers


One of my 2020 couples had a big wedding planned last spring. There were going to be hundreds of guests at a really unique industrial venue downtown. Like so many other 2020 couples, they had to change plans. At one point, they were so devastated, they actually canceled. Their wedding venue was closing down and […]

How to Book + Capture Intimate Weddings


If you are like me, the first part of the year is slightly slower for weddings. The thing about the slow season is…not having as many weddings on the books means that there is not as much money flowing in. And friend, it is so dang easy to let the fear creep in when the money […]
