Wedding videographer education
Thanks for checking out my mentorship and coaching offerings! One of the best things I did in 2020 was invest in myself, even after having a camera in my hand since 2006. That's why I want to share my 15 years of video experience and more than 10 years of wedding industry experience with you! All courses over deliver, plus each person gets free 1-hour weekly follow-up consults for 30 days after any course. There's nothing better to invest in for yourself, both personally and professionally, than knowledge! Choose your option below.
Each course is customized to fit you, your experience level, and your goals. No need to pay for a full curriculum or video courses that contain information you already know or skip over information you actually need. I deliver exactly what you need to know or want to know no matter what stage of your career you're in. Most courses can be virtual or hands-on with 1-on-1 conversation & instruction alongside a few helpful resources and even job-shadowing. All courses have extremely limited availability, so get signed up for a course that is perfect for you and invest in yourself now!
Basic phone and video consults are great for those who just have a few technical questions, want information on gear, need guidance on something that has them stuck, or just want me to give feedback on your work. Each consultation is an hour long with the option of up to 4hrs at a time available. Please click below to set up a chat! Availability: Varies. Click below to schedule.
