What's The Skinny?

So what is the Real Talk Workshop? It is a one-day education-based experience led by yours truly and styled by wedding and destination planner Sarah Pete Rizzi of Sincerely Pete & Wanderlust Wedding Co.  

The Real Talk Workshop was born out of my experiences in the photography industry. When I first started my business, I CRAVED education. I went to every workshop, webinar and conference that existed. Often times, I left feeling like I had emptied my wallet for a pump-up talk with no real or useable takeaways. Industry leaders kept telling me to just “keep at it” and to “buy this guide or course.”

But what I really wanted was an honest, transparent and upfront discussion about my burning industry questions. So, I tapped in to where I started - as an educator. With a degree in Documentary Studies and a Masters in Special Education, I used my experienced in a classroom to help launch my photography & mentoring career.

And now, I want to share my experience, knowledge and know-how with you. With topics from workflows to mechanics and social media to branding, you will leave with tangible ideas to figure out how to make your vision of success come true.

Let’s have some real talk.
