What: Learn how I capture portraits for my clients that are more than just the "pretty photos" we see online over and over again. You will leave feeling empowered to not only make something remarkable for your couples but also create imagery that is unique to your portfolio, market, and brand. 

We will cover topics including initial client connection, natural posing cues, candid portraiture, finding or creating the best light, and my favorite post-processing techniques. I will walk you through both an engagement session and a wedding day so you can elevate your portraits from predictable and pretty to unforgettable, timeless images that go far “Beyond Pinterest”!
