1:1 Mentorships for Photographers

A bit about my journey so far.....

I captured my first wedding in Feb 2020, by March I had resigned from my sales job and and even through we had just embarked on lockdowns I was able to grow my photography business from home and the journey to becoming a full-time photographer forged ahead from there. At the time, there was limited online education for wedding photographers, and few professionals in the industry were willing to share their insights.

I want to be the support I wished I had all those years ago.

Fast forward to late 2020, and everything started falling into place, within just 12 months, I transitioned from barely making $50k to establishing a thriving multiple six-figure business.

So, why am I sharing this with you? Because it's possible, and you can achieve it too.

Here are some notable highlights of where I stand in 2023:

  • I generate 300+ leads annually and am booked out 12+ months in advance.
  • I have photographed 200+ weddings
  • I have the capacity to capture 50-70 weddings each year.
  • Plus, I get the flexibility of doing school runs and managing my calendar to suit.

"I can’t tell you how much of a game changer having Kelly as your mentor is! From the get go she makes you feel comfortable, competent and motivated! Without Kelly’s mentorship I wouldn’t be where I am today, she made me so much more confident starting out with Weddings, and now I’m booked months in advance. Having someone in your corner that’s experienced in the Wedding Industry is so helpful, whether you’re starting out or just looking for a bit of an education/motivation boost - Kelly is your person. She’s down to earth and so generous with her knowledge, you’ll have yourself asking why you didn’t book her mentoring sooner."

"10/10 would recommend kelly"

"Not only do you find a great mentor in Kelly but you also a friend. She is so knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions and once you have chatted to her for even 5 mins you are motivated to start the processes you have spoken about. I would not be where I am today if not for Kelly and her doses of wisdom! This industry is big and small at the same time but having someone in your corner who cares about you and your business is crucial. And Kelly did that for me. She will be the best decision you make for your business.

CAN I GIVE SOMEONE 11?

Kelly was so informative and helpful as I was just starting out. Since then Kelly has has been the most amazing mentor and is someone I really look up to in this industry. She has given me the confidence I needed to get started on my journey in the wedding photography sector, boosting me up and giving me the most valuable tips and tricks along the way.  The confidence I have gained since meeting her has allowed me to shoot my first wedding by myself and has started me on this new wonderful chapter in wedding photography. I would highly recommend jumping on board with Kelly’s mentor sessions she is a gem!
