The coaching is hands on, the strategies aren’t complicated, and the work is deep and meaningful. Through James and Otto’s generous sharing of their industry-shifting experience, I have a firm command of who I am, where I’m going, and what I’m going to do when I get there in a way that I never would have had going this journey alone.“

You’ve got questions?

We’ve got answers.

The information in this course can be used and applied for most photographers and videographers in the wedding industry. It is not specific to a market.

You will be given access to the videos via our online education platform Kajabi. There you will be able to watch the videos at your own pace and watch them as many times as you need.

You will have access to the course materials for life…that is the “life” of the course. As long as the course is available, you will have access, no need to purchase year after year.

This is NOT a photography course. We do not cover the art or technical side of photography and do not discuss gear, composition, settings, editing or any other part of photography outside of curation. This is intended to improve the overall presentation of your website and social media

Absolutely! Though the examples included are photographers specifically, we believe the information in this course will work for most creative businesses in the wedding industry.

100%. We believe the concepts and information on curating a solid portfolio are universal to most locations and markets. However, your revenue goals and results may differ based on the market(s) you work in.

This course is in English and does require fluency in the english language.

The Curate course is not included in The Business of Luxury Weddings program. While some of the information does overlap, this is a deep dive into curating your website, portfolio and social media. This course will help to build the foundation for The Business of Luxury Weddings program.

Absolutely. We offer a 7-day money back guarantee. Just show us that you have completed at least half of the work and explain how you aren’t seeing results and we’ll give you your money back. No problem.
