"You thought of everything. E.VE.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G Every single detail"

You thought of everything. E.VE.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G Every single detail. I saw the reviews of people singing your praises, but I didn’t understand the full extent of what you created. Not only did you DESIGN IT ALL FOR US, Verbiage, templates, tips/tricks, bonus information, curated template design, discount codes, links, you literally made how-to-videos SHOWING us how you do it all. (The square trick in canva! What!! Mind is blown) Who even does that!? Just WOW.

"Literally BLOWN AWAY at these guides. They are AMAZING"

Literally BLOWN AWAY at these guides. They are AMAZING... I have been thinking for awhile how to level up my client experience and when I saw these I knew that they would be a game changer and BOY was I right!!! The aesthetic and design how Steph put these together is beautiful. It is so easy to customize in Canva to fit your voice and your brand. The detailed how to guide, great customer service. I am SO excited to offer these to my clients upon booking & feel this is a level up for my business.

 "If I could give more stars than 5 I would!!"

Steph's products are amazing and I think at this point I have every single one!! Not only are her guides and templates amazing and really beautiful, but they were created to HELP, like actually help other photographers and that shines through when you open one of these templates. She thinks of literally everything and even if you have a question that isn't answered in the start here pdfs, she is so ready to help you succeed. Amazing product from an amazing girl. If I could give more stars than 5 I would!!

"thanks to the confidence that this guide has given me"

This guide was so helpful! It provided so much clarity for me to launch my mentorship program, and I have already gained interest based on the tips that she provided. I am so excited to share my knowledge with other photographers, thanks to the confidence that this guide has given me. It was so encouraging throughout the entire guide, which also helped squash so much imposter syndrome that I had, as I was planning to launch my mentorship program.

 "But this has been such an amazing starting point. HIGHLY recommend!"

This guide has been HUGE!!! I have recently jumped into the photography world and just started having clients reach out with interest in books for weddings!!! Without a background in shooting weddings I was so overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. But this has been such an amazing starting point. HIGHLY recommend!

"do you need this? Yes. Is it INCREDIBLE???? Yes, yes it is"

ELEVATE YOUR BUSINESS If I could give this 10 stars I would. Do you need this? Yes. Is it INCREDIBLE??? Yes, yes it is. Is it worth. every. single. penny? UMMM, YES!! This guide is such an incredible investment and one that you should’ve made ages ago. Not only are these guides beautifully designed and written, but it’s so obvious Steph poured her heart and soul into creating this. It so easy to use and it’s already a staple in my client flow and gifts.

"This template is packed full of useful information"

Steph is a genius! This template is packed full of useful information to send over to your clients. She has already done the hard part for you and created copy for you to use! All you have to do is make it your own by adding your own photos, branding, and adjust the copy to sound like you. So simple to use, yet a powerful tool to be able to send to your clients! I would highly recommend anything from Steph as I has purchased multiple of her guides and they are all extremely helpful!
