As a photographer, you know the power of styled shoots to boost your profile and help you book new clients.

(At least, that’s what you’ve heard on the ‘gram from your fellow photographers.)

As destination wedding photographers ourselves, we’ve seen the power of styled photoshoots when it came to growing our multi six-figure photography business.

That’s exactly why we created The Ultimate Styled Shoot Guide, a step-by-step guide showing you how to create curated content designed to attract the couples you can’t wait to work with.

Our books were full but we were taking any and all clients that came our way. (You know as well as we do what a disaster that can be!)

We were burned out, unhappy, and super stressed. We thought about quitting a few times because it was driving us CRAZY.

Then it hit us. Why stay frustrated when we could completely change our business? Why couldn’t all our clients be our favorite?

After relocating to San Francisco and starting our photography business, we felt like something was missing.

that’s when we discovered styled shoots, the method we used to go from booked out but totally unhappy to booking top-dollar weddings from only the very best clients.

These sessions will often include all the components of a typical wedding day: make-up and hair styling, boudoir, first look, ceremony, reception—and, most importantly, the wedding details (venue, flowers, and table settings) and even a theme.

A Styled Photoshoot shows clients what you can do by way of a “mock” wedding. You create a photoshoot for real couples, as well as wedding industry professionals, to be inspired by. 

Here's how it works:

the difference?

You work with models who are hired to pose for your photos instead of a real couple getting married.

the best part?

Whether you are just starting out or have been doing this for years and want to reinvent yourself, or even if you are satisfied with your business and feel like trying something new, the content you create can then be shared and published to give your work more visibility and exposure.

But it’s not only about creating content with the goal of getting potential clients. 

Styled sessions also allow you to connect with people in the wedding industry and identify potential collaborators and referral partners in the future. In effect, collaborating with these individuals in virtual settings lets you see how they might work in real weddings. And, if all the various styles and personalities align, you can be confident in referring these professionals for future events, and vice versa, thereby growing your businesses together.

We can say for sure that styled Photoshoots lead to real clients and paid work because we, and countless fellow photographers, have seen it work in their business.

What Destination Wedding Photographers Are Saying About The Guide

“As a former venue manager I was able to see several styled shoots come to life before my eyes, but never had a hand in making it all take shape from a creative standpoint. This is my first shoot I am planning from start to finish! I’m excited, and nervous, but having your guide is helping calm some of my nerves. I opened it and found so many answers to questions I had … but more importantly answers to questions I had not yet thought of! This is so helpful, as I can now dedicate loads of time to making sure each base is covered in the months leading up to the shoot.”

“Having your guide is helping calm some of my nerves!”
