Your ideal clients (and your ideal life) is out there waiting for you.
I’ve spent the last 13 years building a luxury wedding photography business that provides my clients with a stellar experience, treasured memories, and timeless, elegant images. My business is built to deliver the multiple-six-figure revenue and free time I need to live an abundant life on my own terms.
Teaching other photographers how to level up to luxury and finally have the business and life they’ve dreamt of is one of the most fulfilling parts of my job.
I’m honored to help you follow the clearly outlined path, implement the proven strategies, and step into your calling as a luxury wedding photographer. Let’s make things happen!
"Hi, I'm Whitney. I'm in Park City, Utah, and I've been doing this for over a decade. Cat's course is everything that you want from a photography course. How to establish good foundations for your business, and also things that even 10 years in I'm learning that I can tweak to be better. It's fantastic.
The calls that you get with the course to get feedback from others and hear others' insights is also a huge selling point. You're not going to be disappointed. Cat's teachings are great. It's a fun experience, but also you're learning and you're growing and you're motivated to make the changes that will take you to the places that you want to go in your business.
Cat, you did great. I'm so glad I got to be a part of it."
"Hi everybody! This is David from Always Us Studios. I'm based out in Houston, and I'm in the business for almost five years now. I had an opportunity to meet Catherine a few months ago, took her course, and all I'm saying is that it's awesome. So if you want to become a full-time wedding photographer, this course is totally for you.
Because all the information that is included in this course is going to blow your mind, okay? You can find everything from pricing, from website, copyright; networking is really important and is in there for you. So do yourself a favor, sign up for the course, and get on it. Catherine also is an awesome person.
Her personality is great. She was there for me every step of the way. Every time I had questions, she was there, answering everything for me, and I'm really, really grateful for this. Thank you so much again, Catherine. And, man, I love the course. I cannot wait to see you succeed. And also, see you again in the near future."
"I'm Lindley Rust, a wedding photographer in Jackson, Wyoming. I took Catherine Guidry's Full-Time Wedding Photography Course because I have been ready for a while to take my wedding business up to the next level. I didn't know what to do. I've been trying a lot of the same things with little to no results.
So, I thought I would give this a shot and it has been an overwhelming success for my business already. And I just completed the course in the last couple of weeks. I'm already getting higher bookings for next summer. Consistent higher bookings for next summer. And I just feel more comfortable in all of my practices, which I think is one thing I was really lacking in.
I felt really unsure of myself in a lot of things. I came away feeling very sure about a lot of my practices that I had already had in place, but also I came away with a whole toolbox of new ways of doing things and different avenues of doing things, many of which I would've never thought of. That, I'm very thankful for.
So I highly recommend, if you're ready to take your business to the next level, doing the same. You won't regret it."
"Hey, I'm Nicole. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Baltimore, Maryland. So I decided to take Catherine's course because I am pretty new to the wedding photography industry and I really just wanted to hit the ground running with serving my clients the best way I could. I knew that there's a lot that I could just kind of figure out on my own, or I could learn from someone who's been in the industry for a while and not have to figure out all those kinks on my own. My biggest takeaway from the course, aside from everything, was probably the pricing module. Catherine talked about it in a way that just made a lot of sense.
I don't feel like I'm just kind of pulling prices out of thin air. It kind of gives you a really good baseline and a really good understanding of how to make custom quotes and proposals for your potential clients, which is awesome. I would absolutely 100% recommend this course to anybody. Whether you are just starting out or have been in the game for a while, if you just kind of want to know what you're doing is correct or need to be pointed a different direction, this is a great course for you. And I love learning from Catherine because she's so levelheaded. She's been in the industry for a while. She has a lot of experience and I love that she's educating while also still photographing. So she's continuing to experience the same things you are on a day to day basis."
Check out what Marina, Kelsey, and Hailey have gotten out of this course. This course was designed with the photographer in mind...willing to do the hard work, wanting to take those next steps and make it happen.
"Hi, I'm Marina Darbonne. I'm from Lake Charles, Louisiana, and I am the owner of Marina Photography. I had started my business about five years ago, and two of those, the two past years, I have been focusing on weddings. Fell in love with the wedding industry. But when I transitioned into weddings, I never properly set up the foundation or structure for my business correctly.
I struggled with a lot of things like marketing and pricing and client onboarding, but there was actually things, a lot of things that I didn't even know that I was struggling with. I could tell that I was lacking that structure. So when I came across this course, I felt like it was a perfect opportunity in where my business is at, where I was at, and in the timing for this course, when it came out, for me to actually put some effort into revamping or maybe taking a step back to take a couple steps forward. So, thankfully, this course not only gave me answers to a lot of the questions that I had or the things that I was struggling with, but it also gave me long-term goals and a plan and kind of set me up for future success versus just fix the immediate problems I was having.
And it was taught in such a way that it gave you all the tools that you needed, but also left room for you to have your own individual business. And that's something, maybe the biggest takeaway that I had from this, was learning from Catherine Guidry. Because learning from someone that you genuinely admire or that is a seasoned wedding photographer is great, but learning from someone who genuinely wants you to succeed will make all the difference. And that was very evident throughout the course, throughout the Zoom calls and even meeting the other people taking the course was a huge impact. So yes, I'm very thankful for this course and for the timing and the balance that the lessons gave us and the way that they were planned out in order for us to, you know, grow and to create those business plans, but still be ourselves; still be our individual selves and create success not just within our business, but even our personal lives, creating those boundaries that we all need when we run our own business.
So definitely very thankful and can't wait to watch this become a huge success. Thank you."
"Hello everyone. I'm Kelsey Chauvin. I'm from Houma, Louisiana, and I have been a photographer professionally for four years now. I decided to take this course because I needed a little direction. I have dabbled in the wedding industry for the last two years and need a little direction to jump from a local market to a luxury market.
And when I got the opportunity to learn from Catherine Guidry, I decided to take full advantage of it. My biggest takeaway from the Full-Time Wedding Photography course was there were a ton of light bulb moments. Catherine made me realize that I need to basically restructure pricing. She says something that resonates with me and it is, "What would you show up for?"
Obviously we're showing up for all of the beautiful moments in between the beginning of the wedding and the start of the wedding. "She made me realize my worth, and what I actually just really want to show up for. So I cannot thank her enough for that. I would totally recommend this course for anyone and everyone, whether you're beginning in the industry or you're even in the middle or the latter end of your professional career. There is something in this course for everyone.
Every single lesson, every single module - there is something in there that can better you. There were so many moments and high points in this course that I cannot even remember every single thing. So it's really important to take good notes and reread and rewatch and do all the things to remember what you've learned.
This content is jampacked full of helpfulness. The course is amazing. I really liked learning from Catherine herself. She as a human, as a person, wife, mother, photographer, she radiates positivity. She is one of those, "Always do the right thing," kind of people. So to learn from her has been quite a blessing and quite a treasure.
She speaks to your heart. She speaks to your soul, and I am so happy and so grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from her, and I would invest in her. I would invest my time and my money and everything into anything she has to offer. She's successful and she's beautiful, and she is there for you, and you totally 100% feel that from the moment you meet her.
This opportunity has been a blessing for me. I cannot wait to take all of her teachings and all of her recommendations and suggestions and her connections in the wedding industry and just move forward from here. I'm forever grateful. Thanks."
"Hey, my name is Hailey with Hailey Madison Photography based out of Zachary, Louisiana, and I have the privilege of being one of the first people to complete Catherine Guidry's Full-Time Wedding Photography course. So a little bit of backstory on me. I opened my business in 2017 and I started shooting my first weddings that year, and I would kind of do it on the side for a few years until 2021 when I was pregnant.
And then I decided to really start putting in the effort and by 2022 with my one year old at home, I decided to leave my job in the medical field to pursue photography full time. That was great and all, but there was no real plan. I just knew that I was doing what I loved. Clients were coming in and I was making some money, but everything in between there, I didn't really have figured out.
And that's where I feel like Catherine's course kind of integrated perfectly into my business. By this point, about five years into my business, I have probably thousands of dollars worth of money invested in education from local colleges, mentoring with photographers in my area, online courses. But I really felt like there was something different about Catherine's course.
My personal favorite part was her take on pricing. So, like I said, I've mentored, done lots of courses, but I had never heard it explained and seen Catherine's take on pricing. As soon as I finished watching that module, I instantly went and remade my pricing guide. That's how influential it was to me. And another thing I really liked about her course was the live calls.
You can really get on there and feel like you're being mentored personally by Catherine, and every time you talk to her, you can just tell how much she loves and truly has a passion for photography and educating. So it was really nice to connect with her and the others in the group and kind of bounce ideas off of each other and really learn from others who are experts in the industry.
And it was, it was really fun to connect with everybody. So I am really excited to implement everything that I learned into my business. I have so many things that I took away from this course and I'm ready to start implementing, and I have already seen the changes for the better that this course has done for my business.
So I'm so excited to grow my business and see where it takes me in the future, and I can't wait for you guys to dive in."
While this advice can be applied to portrait photography, this course focuses primarily on luxury wedding photography and the specifics of succeeding in this industry.
