Are you interested in growing your skills and adding video to what you provide your clients? Come join us in Crested Butte on Saturday May 22, and Sunday May 23 for a first ever photo AND video styled shoot and workshop! Although coming up soon, we chose this weekend because it is just before the real wedding season begins in the mountains in June, and is also before Memorial Day weekend when Crested Butte will be filled with tourists.

As you know, there is a huge trend toward intimate weddings and elopements and also an undeniable trend toward including video. Actually, the art of wedding cinematography is evolving super fast, making it a much more compelling thing for modern couples to include now, more than ever. The challenge is that oftentimes smaller weddings and elopements don’t have the budget for BOTH photo and video. We think it’s long overdue to teach photographers how to integrate video into their offering! Photographers who do this are providing value to their clients, expanding their creative abilities, and will also be head and shoulders above other photographers who don’t understand how to film or edit video.
How do we do it??? How do we photograph AND film weddings at the same time? Well, we will show you exactly how we do this in a comprehensive, hands on workshop. On Saturday, we’ll meet in Crested Butte and we’ll show you first hand how we capture both photo and video in a styled shoot. This will include a mock ceremony at Ten Peaks -Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s iconic wedding deck. Then we’ll show you how we orchestrate portraits with both photo and film, and then finally a mock reception with a beautiful table setting styled by Lucky Penny Events and Bramble and Bloom Floral. You will be photographing AND filming every step of the way, with guidance from us unique to each part of the wedding day, whether it’s the ceremony, portraits, details, etc.
On Sunday morning, we’ll reconvene with our laptops, where we’ll walk you through our processes to organize the footage and edit together truly cinematic films. Many photographers can hit the record button on their cameras, but find that editing is where the real challenges arise. Post production is the true secret sauce to making films that people will treasure, versus the typical music montages that are not only boring, but do not stand out from the crowd.
We’ve worked hard behind the scenes to put everything together for an amazing weekend of learning! We’re stoked to show you how we work! You’ll walk away with not just incredible styled shoot content in both photo and video format, but a new sense of purpose and ability to provide real value to your clients. When faced with photographer selection decisions, couples will choose you over and over again above other photographers who “can’t even” with video.
We are pricing this at a super reasonable $450 per spot, which is probably less than you charge for a one hour engagement session. Your return will be many times the investment. The workshop is just around the corner and this will be a super small group of creatives, so email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot!
