There’s so much bts prep happening around here for this summer and we’re 😍😍😍 about it! Last years robe designs were an all-time favorite to put together, but holy moly wait til you see what we have in store for this year! 😉 Darling attendees, we’re counting down the days until we welcome you! 😘 #thesignatureatelier #thesignatureatelierround2
Registration closes TONIGHT at midnight for #thesignatureatelier Round 2! Who’s in?! 🎉 Come join us this summer at the incredible @chateaubouthonvilliers for a week of education, laughter, French cuisine and portfolio building! - Once registration closes, this workshop goes back in the vault for TWO years! This workshop is truly one-of-a-kind, there’s nothing else out on the market like it, and we would LOVE to have you there with us! - The Signature Atelier is an intimate five day destination workshop for photographers, in the heart of the French countryside. Leaders will teach a series of lessons designed to help attendees learn to serve high-end clientele, discover a deeper vision & mission, and uncover their own signature style. Attendees will be guided through a quaint French town by two industry leaders renowned for their French-inspired work, will experience an authentic slice of French life and cuisine, and will experiment with new mediums through hands-on classes in watercolor painting, film photography, and silk ribbon dying. - Lodging at an authentic, 18th-century French château, all meals, and darling swag are included in tuition. - Taught by international wedding & anniversary photographer, @abbygracephoto, and bespoke bridal gown & lingerie designer @katherinebignon.
Show of hands from those of you who were EXCITED to do your taxes this year! (JK, because #letsbehonest- it's not normal to get excited for taxes). 💸 But because we suspect you've been poring over your expenses from the last year, here's a quick numbers tip for you photographers: if you're ever wondering how to price your products, a standard rule of thumb is cost✖️3️⃣! One third for the cost of the item itself, one third to put aside for taxes & overhead expenses, and one third for profit (which is what you use to pay your mortgage, save for retirement, budget for groceries, etc). If you're ever in doubt on how to price a physical product for your business, just remember cost✖️3️⃣!” 🤓 PS- struggling with pricing? We've got a class for that- I (@abbygracephoto) am so pumped to be teaching Pricing for Profit this summer, because if there's one thing I've learned over the last 8 years in business, it's that we creatives seriously struggle with undervaluing our own craft! My husband (and biz partner!) and I desire to run a business that enables a LIFE we love, and so much of that begins and ends with pricing for profit. Link in bio for the full class schedule!
In case you missed the email to our list family, we just announced that we will NOT be hosting a #thesignatureatelier workshop in 2019! Which means the remaining two spots for this summer's workshop will be the last ones available for at least two years! • We get it. An investment like an international workshop isn't something to sneeze at- it's a big deal. But Katherine & I also know that it can also result in correspondingly-large growth for your business. So, we have to ask: • If not now, then when? • And if not this, then what? • We'd hate for you to wait another year (or two) to start seeing the type of growth your business is capable of, serving the type of clients you've been dying to work with. • Get the details and reserve your spot with us in France at the link in bio.
ANNOUNCEMENT! As if our plans for the workshop this summer weren't already daydream-worthy, we'll also be joined by @ashlynscarter, copywriting QUEEN of the creative industry and my dear friend!! • Ashlyn writes for the best of the best in our industry, and we are THRILLED to announce that she'll be teaching a session in July, Copy for the Luxe Set: High-End Service Copy that Nurtures & Closes the Sale. • We are SO excited to have her with us in France this summer! Registration is closing Wednesday, April 18th- find all the details and reserve your seat at the link in profile! • A bit more about Ashlyn: Ashlyn writes well-appointed words for creative women as a copywriter & calligrapher. She left her job as a publicist to go full-time with her calligraphy biz for brides--and realized there were lots of creatives fumbling with their message and sales copy (you can take the girl out of the PR agency ... ). • Trading clients like Delta Air Lines and Chick-fil-A to write conversion website copy and launch copy for creative industry dreamies like Jenna Kutcher, Local Milk Blog, Desiree Hartsock Bridal, Katelyn James, Heather Crabtree, Hilary Rushford, Abby Grace Photography, Shay Cochrane, and Justin & Mary Marantz is just the bee's knees. Her calligraphy has been featured in Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, and The Knot. When not writing about herself in third person, she’s usually trying to scratch the ink off her fingernails or grabbing margs and tacos with her husband. • photo by @callielindsey
If you’re already registered for #thesignatureatelier Round 2, you’re in for a TREAT!! There is a HUGE surprise coming on Monday and we can barely keep our lips sealed until then... who wants to guess what it'll be?! • The Signature Atelier is an intimate destination workshop intentionally designed for photographers looking to build a luxury, high-end, photography business, develop their signature style, and clarify the mission and vision of their brand. Last year every single photographer walked away even more in love with their craft and completely re-inspired as they approached new projects, and we can’t wait to experience the same with our new group of attendees! Only 2 spots remain for an all-inclusive week at a French chateau- find more information + registration at the link in profile!
France dreaming? So are we! We have TWO seats remaining for photographers to join @abbygracephoto and @katherinebignon in France this summer to learn how to scale their business into the high-end wedding market. This workshop isn’t fluff; it’s filled to the brim with detailed, nitty-gritty education into the behind-the-scenes of a luxury business model, destination shooting to grow your portfolio to speak to your ideal bride, and intentional details paired with heartfelt conversations so that we can equip you to run your business well . Don’t spend another season telling yourself you’ll take the time to invest later, give yourself permission to grow now and join us for @thesignatureatelier and come away equipped, energized, and inspired to build the luxury photography brand you’ve been dreaming of. All the details are on #thesignatureatelier website, via the link in profile.
