Join Mary Dougherty as she pulls together a wedding weekend that will refresh your creativity and give you a blueprint for booking the work you want.
Five years into being a wedding photographer, pregnant with my first baby I realized I couldn't do things the same way. You know, 25-30 weddings a year and working non stop at home. I decided to make a change. I would love to share what I've learned in the last 12 years, and how I created the business that fits my life.
I host this workshop with an amazing group of creative friends. We will spend time in the mountains (where I live) and be refreshed by nature. We are coming together to create an elegant, outdoor inspired wedding for up to 10 photographers to document and learn from.

We will tell a complete story by documenting more than just a portrait session or ceremony scene.
Mary will share her transition to film + hybrid shooting and how she brings in an average of $7k per wedding. Get the blueprint to do what she does or become equipped to go in your own direction.
A diverse group of creatives will be on site to share and learn from. The people I'm looking to bring together are interested not only in their own success, but the success of others.
