Are you tired of posting on social media and feeling like your photos aren't getting seen and you just want to give up with this whole social media thing?
Are you frustrated with ineffective Facebook and Instagram advertising that leaves you with no leads and less money?
Are you frustrated with receiving inquiries from couples who ghost you once you reply?
Do you long for a mentor who’s been where you’re at and can take you to the next level?
Do you feel isolated, without a strong community of wedding photographers who encourage and support you?
Do you feel like your workflow is disorganized and is costing you peace of mind?
Do you stress about missing an important shot?
Do you wish you had a better repertoire of cute poses for the couple?
Do you wonder whether you’ve priced your services too high…or too low?
Are you intimidated by business plans and do you get nightmares about tax day?
Do your marketing emails fall flat?
Are you tired of SEO people making big promises but failing to deliver?
Are you unsure of how to transition your photography business to do more weddings and fewer other sessions?
Are you uncertain of where to even start?

"Devin! This class is worth its weigh in gold! Your courses are fun and exciting to watch and keep my attention the whole time. I’ve only watched 5 of the 50+ videos and looked at 3 PDFs from the Client Interaction module so far. I now have several action items that I can implement in my business right away and this is just the beginning... can't wait to dive in deeper! GAME CHANGER! My daughter is in the room with me and keeps doing this at the end of every video with you 🤣!"
Six months from now, you’re shooting the wedding of your two new favorite people.
They found a secluded mountain retreat for their ceremony—it’s just you and them and stunning views. It’s a photographer’s paradise. The guests are looking marvelous as they wait for the ceremony to begin.
You’ve been moving confidently throughout the venue, taking all the shots the couple will love later.
Now you take your place as the music begins. Everyone stands as the bride enters the aisle. The lovestruck groom is gazing at her in wonder.
You smile as you look through the viewfinder and...click.
Another moment captured.
Another memory they’ll treasure forever.
Two weeks later, you’re editing their photos when your inbox pings. The email’s subject line reads THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU—it’s from the wedding you shot last month. The bride can’t stop gushing over how gorgeous your photos are.
You reply and tell her how privileged you were to be a part of their big day. Just as you hit Send, your phone buzzes at you. Instagram again… yes, another inquiry! Your new social media strategy is really paying off.
You smile as you type your response and...send.
Another prospect contacted.
Another opportunity to do the work you love.

"Gotta give a shout out to Devin! Last night we had our first IPS design session after a wedding, and it went AMAZING! I had been prepping couples using the techniques that you taught so We broke up the session and surprised them like you taught and it they totally lost it with the waterworks all night! We’d never have had the confidence to do this without the course & Workshop so thanks so much Devin!!!"
I’ve shot weddings in 9 countries and traveled to exotic places like Barcelona, Paris, India, Hawaii, Ireland, Colombia and more!
with over 70 weddings a year and 5 photographers, our average client spends over 7K
My peers think I’m the real deal: I’ve been nominated for Rangefinder’s “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography,” been named a Junebug “Best of the Best,” and won a numerous Fearless Photographer awards.
2019 Revenue with well over a six-figure personal salary. Expected to grow in 2020.
I first picked up a camera right before I finished college, just to play around. A couple friends liked some of my photos and asked, “Do you want to photograph our wedding? We’ll pay you $500.” I was like, “500 bucks!?! Yep! Heck yeah I’ll do that!”
From there people continued to ask me, “Hey man, your photos look great. Can you photograph our wedding?” So that first year I photographed 3 weddings with my wife. We charged something like $500, $500, and $1500.
The second year our little business grew pretty quickly and we shot 14 weddings. Wedding photography was becoming a nice supplementary income source!
Year three was killer. We shot 26 weddings—over two per month—while I was coaching football, coaching baseball, and teaching at a school. Oh, and my wife was working her full-time corporate job.
In July 2015, I quit my jobs and went full-time as a wedding photographer. That December, my wife did the same. In 2016 we shot 40 weddings, and in 2017 we shot another 40 all over the globe—like Barcelona, Paris, Ireland and Hawaii!
At the end of 2018 we finished the year with 250K in revenue and began hiring associates. By the end of 2019 we had generated over 420K in revenue and hired 5 associates and 2 cinematographers with over 70 weddings already on the books for 2020.
We've had the honor of being featured in and awarded by some of the most prestigious blogs and publications from around the globe.
But now I’ve found the exact steps you need in order to learn the art and science of wedding photography and launch your successful, satisfying business—in a matter of months, not years
Actually start booking YOUR EXACT IDEAL CLIENT on social media!
Striking out and wasting time on social media feeling discouraged with your likes and engagement
Learn how to price yourself effectively and ultimately hit that 6-figure year!
Feeling robbed and underpriced for your weddings, leaving you burnt out.
Find your photographic voice and start shooting with a passion and feeling confident in your work again.
Feeling like your work is stale and boring and you aren't standing out in the crowd.
It’s life changing for your clients. Because of you, they have gorgeous photos of the happiest day of their life. Every time they look at your photos, their memories and emotions stir. Their love is kindled afresh. All because you were their wedding photographer.
AND it’s life changing for you. You end each day happy and fulfilled. As you sit down with a mug of tea, sink into a comfy chair, or settle into bed, you feel satisfied because you captured the moments your clients will cherish forever. Since your work brings meaning and joy into others’ lives, meaning and joy fill your life too.
I hadn’t found my life’s calling until I became a wedding photographer. Then I realized that my role is to help lovestruck couples begin their life together by photographing the moments that reveal their love for one another. Now I live a fulfilled life every day as I book new clients, shoot amazing weddings, and deliver stunning photos.
I want YOU to feel that fulfillment too.
I want to take your skills to the next level. I care deeply about technique because mastering technique empowers you to take masterful photos.
I’ll teach you about aperture and shadow and shooting in black and white ... even if you know nothing about those things. And if you are already a proficient photographer, I’ll guide you to the advanced level.
I want to help you launch your own business. Or maybe you have a business but are still stuck in the “Weekend Warrior” phase. I feel ya—I’ve been there. And I know what it takes to get you to the next level. I’ll teach you the business and marketing skills you need to book more clients and become profitable. I will help you attain the lifestyle you crave.
This is your time to become a wedding photographer and make a living doing what you love.
Are you ready?

"Your teaching has honestly changed my life and my business 10 fold since learning from you! I've booked a total of 35 weddings this year (10 more than last year)... 13 of them have come in since learning from you and all the new techniques! I already have 24 booked for 2020 (in June 2019)!"
Once you join the Masterclass Elite, you’re a member for life. You can watch and rewatch the videos today, next month, and next decade.
The Wedding Photography Masterclass is jam-packed with absolutely everything you need to know to run a wildly successful wedding photography business. If you can find something I’ve left out, tell me! It might just be the subject of my next video. I won’t stop filming videos until this is the most comprehensive and thorough wedding photography course in existence.
This course is constantly growing—it’s at 65 videos now, with another 25+ on the way. You will always get access to every new video I film. I intend to keep creating new content so this course is always relevant and up-to-date.
Watch me shoot weddings LIVE! You can shadow me from home. See what I see, hear what I hear. You’ll learn my workflow and thought process far more quickly and intimately than you could from tutorial videos alone. I love photographing weddings, and I’ll love having you along for the ride!
I have zero patience for “rah-rah” courses that are a bunch of fluff with no solid content. The Wedding Photography Masterclass is hyper-practical. I will reveal the nitty-gritty details of how to master lighting, edit creatively using Photoshop, design killer photo albums, and even how to save money on your business taxes.
I’m super interested in the business side of wedding photography. I’ll walk you through the science of running a successful business, from tax advice to templates for replying to prospects. But I’m also obsessed with creating awesome art. Your creative spark will be nourished by this course, and you’ll take better photos because of it. If you feel like your photos are missing something or could be that little bit better, this is the course for you.
I am a strong believer that Feedback is the breakfast of champions. So, once a month I will bring in one of my good friends in the industry and we will do critiques on some of your photos!
I teach Instagram very differently from most. And my results speak for themselves: This year I’ve gotten 120 wedding leads and booked $170,000 in revenue through Instagram alone. Oh, and I post just once a week.
Before The Wedding Photography Masterclass, the only way to get this training was if you got into one of my sold-out workshops. (Which is hard, since they sold out less than an hour after registration opened.)
Attendees came from all over—Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida, Washington state. One even came from Vancouver, Canada!
They paid $1,800 each to attend this workshop because they believed its value for them would far outweigh the price tag.
And that $1,800 doesn’t even include the cost of travel and hotels and meals and Uber. Even if literally everything else only cost $800, these attendees chose to pay over $2,600 to get this training.
But honestly, you and I both know that the value of this course can’t be calculated in dollars and cents.
- The value is the joy you experience capturing the most important moments of a lovestruck couple’s life together.
- The value is the satisfaction you feel at the end of a long day as you relax on your couch and think of the people you caused to smile.
- The value is the freedom you have to set your own schedule and be your own boss. It’s freedom from whatever 9-to-5 job you used to have, and freedom for the photography that thrills your soul.
- The value is you loving your work and loving your life, everyday. It’s your friends noticing a change in you—how you’ve become less stressed and pressured, more easygoing and lighthearted.
This should cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. But you don’t have to pay $2,600 for this dream to become your reality.
You don’t even have to pay $2,000.
This could be yours for $1,495!
How would you feel if in a year, your life looked exactly like it does today? Would you be okay with that? Or would you be discontent? Would you be unhappy with your inaction? Do you need to make a decisive change for the better before the next 12 months is up?
If you join this course and put in the work, I promise you that your life will look different a year from today. You’ll learn the skills, launch your own business, and love your work every day.
