Meet your hosts
I started photographing weddings in his sophomore year of college. I originally planned to go to medical school, and become an Orthopedic Physician. As demand grew, what started out as a side hustle quickly became a six-figure photo/video business, and plans for Medical school went out the window. Josie, my fiancé and high school sweetheart, started filming alongside me at the end of 2021. After seeing how much I loved capturing weddings, she decided to give her creative side a little freedom, too. Today, she captures the sounds and movement of a wedding day. Shooting 25-30 weddings per year as a photo and video team, Josie and I bring an abundance of knowledge not just about photography, but about building a business. We want to help you in whatever area you are struggling with your business, from marketing, to shooting, and so much more. We can't wait to watch your talents grow!

Meet us in Maine

From restaurants, to coffee shops, to our favorite locations to shoot, we are going to provide you with all of our insider knowledge.
With 6 shoots in total, this workshop will be a true Maine experience. From shooting at iconic lighthouses, to cliffside beaches, to a hidden slice of serenity along the coast, we want you to leave this workshop feeling energized and ready to elevate your business.
Questions & Answers
Where should we fly into?
You can either choose to fly into Portland (PWM) or Boston (BOS). Boston is about an hour and 30 minutes from the cottages, and will likely have the cheaper flights depending on the airport you're flying in from! Portland Jetport is about 30 minutes from the cottages.
How will transportation work?
We recommend renting a car, or connecting with one of the other attendees and renting a car together! You'll find that in Maine, you have to drive everywhere you go, so it is recommended to rent a car. There will not be any remote locations that require 4x4, etc, so you can rent a sedan comfortably!
Is food included?
We want to make sure you can stay energized and ready to shoot! We will be providing basic snacks and drinks, along with simple lunches (sandwiches, pasta salad, etc.), but we encourage you to try one of the many incredible restaurants in the area! Southern Maine has some of the best food in the entire country, and we will certainly give you some recommendations!
What will the schedule look like?
It's hard to say until it gets closer, but the schedule will likely consist of shooting at sunrise, and sunset, with education back at the cottages in the Main House in between. Sunrise is at 5am and sunset is at 8:20, so it will make for some long days of shooting! We will be sure to balance some down time with the plans for each day to make sure you don't burn out!
