There is one image on your website that should be better than (or as good as) any other shot that you have taken.

Your own headshot.

When the prospective client sees your headshot, great opinions will be formed about who you are, what you do, and whether or not you’re the right fit for them…all in about 1/10th of a second!

This transcends just wedding photography.

This is for ALL photographers.

Here are five reasons why you MUST have an amazing head shot.
 1. People want to know who they’re trusting with their memories
2. If you want to charge 10k, you better look like a 10k photographer
3. Clients hire those they relate to (or want to be like)
4. If you don’t value your own photograph, why should they value theirs?
5. If this is the imagery you create when you have all the time in the world and 100% control, what will the images look like when you don’t?

I want to show you a break down, piece by piece, for how we took our killer new head shots!
