we've shootshopped in atlanta, new york, vegas, and london and we're finally bringing our shootshop back to good ol' sunny southern california! it's been a year and half since the last shootshop on our home turf and we are so excited to spend the day shootshopping with new friends in our NEW STUDIO SPACE. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!


come join us for an intimate, intense one-day shootshop focussing on kicking ass and standing out in your market through unique personal branding and amazing imagery. we will be discussing the steps we've taken in our business to carve out a profitable and artistically fulfilling niche in the most competitive wedding market in the world. we will spend the first part of the day focussing on branding, finding photographic inspiration, finding clients that "get" you and have to have you, and managing those client's expectations. after lunch we will be heading out on the town for a shoot showing how we make our unique, creative portraits in any environment. we will demonstrate shooting in a wide variety of everyday situations and give practical, specific techniques about how to walk away with stellar images every time. we will use a real couple in real world locations to teach our distinct style of casual posing, un-posing, thinking creatively, and utilizing natural (harsh and soft) and artificial light of all shapes and sizes. after the shoot we'll lay ourselves bare and show all the images from the shoot then reveal all of our post-processing techniques in photoshop and discuss our digital workflow. so bring your thinking caps and notepads cuz it's going to be a brain busting busy day!


the shootshop will take place on DECEMBER 7TH, 2011 from 9-6-ish followed by a deeeelish no holds barred ask whatever the hell you want for as long as you want wrap up dinner. we love to chat with photographers and answer as many specific questions as possible so we've scheduled plenty of time to eat and mingle with our intimate group :)

"nate+jac, for lack of better words, you guys rocked my world! The shootshop was so beyond my expectations, and it was a source of such great inspiration not just for my business, but also has refreshed my perspective as an artist. thanks for many priceless faces, laughs, moments, lessons, etc. I feel so blessed to have shared in it all! the thing I walked away with the most was the freedom to just be myself and operate the business according to who i am, not who others want me to be - it already feels like a huge weight is lifted off of my shoulders." - ashey parsons

"i can't express enough how much this workshop has and will improve my game. i have a long way to go, but at least now I know which road to take..." - chris vaugn

"BITCHIN'. that's all i got. cause other than that - there just aren't words big enough to describe all that i took out of 15 hours with you two fine folk." - ben harms

"nate and guys totally inspired me and answered my bazillion questions...thanks so much for your openness and approachability! You guys have an awesome relationship and I am in *awe* of your talent. I thought you guys were uber talented before I came to the shootshop and are up on a pedestal that I hope to one day climb up!" - sarah goodman

"The shootshop was better than what I thought it would be. To be honest, making such a large investment for a one-day seminar is scary because I'm never sure if it'll be worth it. Trying to sum up my experience with adjectives and metaphors won't do it justice. Beyond all else, Nate and Jaclyn were 100% real. They didn't hide behind smoke and mirrors, answered every question with extra detail, and kept things fun. They're an amazing team, but they remain humble via honesty, humor, and self-deprecation…all the things that makes my heart feel all warm-n-fuzzy.

If you have an opportunity to attend this workshop, DO IT! Even if it means having a yard sale, selling an organ, or naming your first child Natelyn to fund the experience, DO IT! You'll be inspired and rejuvenated a thousand times over.

Nate and Jaclyn, thank you. These two words seem so small to express how I feel, but I hope they'll suffice until I can think of something better. You are some of the most amazing people in the industry and I'm honored to have spent so much time with you. Thank you for giving of yourselves unconditionally and sincerely." - jasmine star

"Nate and Jaclyn, thank you both so much for allowing me to be part of the shootshop. My head is still spinning (all the way around) with so much information being shared. Seeing the images from the day brings everything full circle. The word that keeps coming to my mind is passion. Your passion for your craft, your family, your ever-increasing circle of friends/fans and for life is the very definition of success. More inspiring yet is your ability to instill that passion in others." - mark

"Nate and Jaclyn...You guys were so open and honest about everything. Your shootshop was enlightening and demystifying at the same time. As a photographer, I am definitely walking away with a whole new perspective and I am so grateful for that." - jason tran

"nate, jaclyn, you are two of the most genuine-ish and humble-ish people, thanks for much for the inspiration and all the wonderful tips. I'd do this again in a heartbeat!" - chris waters
