THE PRINCIPLES OF STYLING

One-on-One

For

Wedding Photographers



Whether it’s styling invitations, or shooting perfect tabletop images, my goal is to help you nail your detail shots every time. Publications love details and without them it can be harder to get published, which means less exposure, and less inquires. The principles of styling will teach you how to quickly create and capture successful detail shots in spite of the time constraints of wedding day. Strong detail shots paired with strong portraits will get you published more often and get you direct exposure to your next potential client.

Each of my one-on-one’s is tailored to the client’s specific needs. Email me to discuss further. I also teach other types of styling like food, flat-lay, product, and lifestyle.

PRAISE


“I just wanted to say THANKS SO MUCH. You exposed me to concepts so invaluable to my business. This will take my styling skills to a whole other level. I can’t wait to put them to practice. It was life-changing.” -Michelle Castillo, Wedding Planner

“Thank you so much for hosting, organizing, and teaching the principles of styling. I can’t believe your workshop has come and gone. I had such a great time learning, shooting, and meeting so many amazing people. I left feeling inspired and re-invigorated after being stuck in a creative funk. I think you’re incredibly talented. It was particularly awesome hearing you speak about how you did the Honeymoon Road trip shoot. While I had seen the epic photos by Erich McVey beforehand, I now have a greater appreciation and understanding about styling. Some of the biggest takeaways I learned is how important it is to conceptualize and style in a way that not only tells a story but looks/feels organic, consistent, and natural.” – Irene Cole, Photographer

“It was the best and loved all the hands on training we received! My recommendation is GO!” -Barbara Walters, The Lynden Lane, Wedding Planner
