Photography Mentoring

LEARNING FROM PVP

This is coaching that allows you to run your business instead of your business running you! 

One of our biggest honors has been finding clients that invest in us traveling to shoot engagement sessions and weddings all over the country, including Charleston, Sedona, Washington D.C., Seattle, Denver, New Orleans and more.

Eight years ago, I started my photography business, which spawned from a passionate side hobby. In 2018, I went from 7 weddings to 43 weddings, allowing me to quit my job from one of the world's top PR and marketing agencies to make a six-figure revenue. I've expanded the business to include the San Francisco and Austin markets + have brought on two additional associate photographers to support demand.

Since I started this dream adventure, I've been published by outlets like Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart, The Black Tie Bride and Carats and Cake.

In addition to always honing our photography skills, I greatly attribute my success to my business knowledge. I graduated from Texas State with a degree in public relations and writing, and then worked as a public relations and marketing manager for 6+ years where I managed accounts in technology, consumer brand and government spaces worth over $1M. In addition to this, I've kept up my marketing abilities by supporting creatives from a freelance perspective with website copywriting and social media management. 

I'm excited to talk more about your business problems and ways we can solve them together. After all, a rising tide lifts all ships!

WHAT CAN YOU LEARN?

“Paige is just an overall rockstar. I had been wanting to take some workshops to up-level my business and my knowledge so I could serve my clients better.”

We had such a fun conversation and she was so informative. She really helped me with the business side of things and my clients' experience. I learned so much more about systems, simplifying processes for both myself and my clients, automation, providing more value. I'm so grateful she was so kind and willing to guide me. It's made such a difference in the backend of my business, which is where I really needed the help.

“As a small business owner I'm used to wearing many hats; I've always created and written content for my website. It never seemed 100% professional and had trouble finding my own voice.”

I have always been impressed with Paige's creative, professional approach. She absolutely understood what I wanted and was able to articulate what I had been trying to convey for so many years! I feel like I finally have a website that conveys what I do in a fun and professional way. My inquiries from my website have increased and have even gotten comments about how much clients loved my website!

“Paige hit the nail on the head! After working with her on our copy, she really guided us to find the perfect balance; sounding like our true and authentic voice.”

Your clients aren't just hiring you for your services... they are hiring you for YOU! When we embarked on our rebranding adventure we hired out a company for our logo and web design. Initially, we wanted to write our own copy but full transparency: the stress of writing ALL of our copy was outweighing what should otherwise be an exciting and fun process. Time is money and we struggled to find the balance between conversational and laid back while still sounding professional and polished!

“We're on track to bring in the biggest annual revenue in our business thus far, and a lot of that is due to Paige's guidance.”

We started working with Paige with the goal of scaling our business to the next level. We could not be more pleased with the results of our partnership with her. Our social following has increased by 30%, our lead volume has skyrocketed year over year, and we recently booked the highest paying client we've ever had. We're on track to bring in the biggest annual revenue in our business thus far, and a lot of that is due to Paige's guidance. Not only that, Paige has consistently throughout the process offered simple, actionable steps to help us remove roadblocks or level up processes in our business.
