Get Legit:
From the ground up


Module One:

Before you dive into the crazy (but amazing!) world of entrepreneurship, we need to ensure that you are prepared to take on this role. There is no point of getting half way down the runway and realizing your plane was not prepared for take off. 

Course breakdown:

The Application

You build a business the same way you build a home.

I'm pretty pumped about how we're going to be learning in this course. Using the metaphor of building the "home" of your business, we are going to start our construction all the way from the application and picking a "lot" to building the foundation & walls. 

The "building a house" metaphor allows you to see WHY we are learning in this very specific order. Each piece will build upon the previous in the same sense that you have to build a house in a specific order. You can't have walls or furniture before you have a foundation. 

You can explore the modules and understand the flow below:  

Module Two

Money is not enough of a motivator to help you navigate the difficult times of business. With this module we are going to define your WHY and WHO. WHY you want to work in this field and WHO you want to work for. These two pillars will help us to craft the perfect "home" for your business.

The Lot

Module Three

Consider this module something like the "backlot of Disney". We all love Disney magic but there is a LOT that goes into creating that magic, including systems, timing, workflows and more, aka the structure behind the facade. We will be creating all your business systems here. 

The Foundation

Module Four

When a new client walks into the "home" of your business, what's the decor like, what does it 'feel' like, what's the atmosphere like? The important pieces of creating a client workflow and understanding how your client interacts with your business, will have the greatest impact on their client experience. This layer cannot be built without knowing all that has come before.

The walls

Module Five

Curb appeal. It's one of the most subtle factors in why a home is desired over others. This is the "pretty work" that you've been craving to dive into. We get to take the incredible foundation and walls of your home that you've built and NOW create an exterior to bring in WHO you want in your home. We are going to bring everything internal and showcase it on the external. Get ready for color palettes, branding marks and a gorgeous Instagram feed.

The porch

Module Six

Now it's time to throw a housewarming party and let people know you are here! This is where we incorporate everything you've built into your marketing with the most popular platforms. This is a great beginners 101 to utilizing social media platforms to grow your business sustainably.

How it works

A year from now you
will have wished you started today....

so let's get you started!

It's about damn time you built the business you've always dreamed of

- sarah

I do not claim that this is the only way to build business systems, but I do say it's a damn good place to start. Most times in life, we just have to start DOING and stop THINKING about the actions we need to take. Your business will continue to grow and evolve, as will your business practices. Let's get you started on the right foot so you have a stronger base to launch from!

You're stronger than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your business systems to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works.

trust me, you're in the right place.

Have business workflows set up that give you back your time & keep you on track

Understand the who, what and why of your wedding photography business

Checklists to ensure you have everything from A-Z covered in your business including your finances

Understand how your business workflows connect to your client's experience

Have sustainable workflows with social media that aren't overwhelming

Feel as confident in your business as you do behind the camera

By the end of 12 weeks, you will...


Look, I've been exactly where you are. You're a great photographer but your business keeps you up at night worrying if you "got the shot", "paid that bill", "got that invoice sent", "checked in with your clients". It's not fun. But together with this curriculum, you can change all of that. Let me show you how. 

Five years ago, I got fired and had to build my business the hard way.

That's right, I had to create a job after losing what I thought had been my "dream job". Through years of trial & error I was able to learn & understand the wedding industry, how to make a living to support my family, and not lose my sanity in the process. It's taken me years to get to this point and I want YOU to get there FASTER. 

You're a great photographer. Let's make you a great business owner.

i can help because i've been there

be great at both photography & business

This course is the only one of its kind because...

It takes you back to the basics and helps you rebuild something solid

Instead of focusing on vanity metrics like the number of Instagram followers you have, we will be focusing on the actual numbers in your bank account and the number of bookings on your calendar.

I'm not here to teach you how to do reels or the latest Tik-Tok dance, but I AM here to make a difference in your life and in your business. I think we as photographers get too caught up in the comparison game while chasing down new trends and forgetting about what actually matters. While fun dances and hilarious lip-syncs have their place, I want you to have something solid that you can always lean on; your business.

This course teaches you the rinse & repeatable parts of business

You no longer need to try and reinvent the wheel every time a new inquiry hits your inbox. Business systems allow you to create a sustainable & repeatable experience for all your couples. 

Don't worry, I'm not saying your photography can't be wickedly fresh or new, BUT I am saying that your business needs to run like a well-oiled machine so that you can continue to do what you love. Let's make this easy, straightforward and let the magic happen. 

This program includes everything you need to revamp your business.

This course has 25 lessons across 6 modules that will help you rebuild the "home" of your business from the ground up. You'll walk away feeling more confident and excited about your business, with fresh knowledge and know-how.

Having a sustainable, scalable business

Building a system that will keep you on track

Create an incredible client experience that continues to attract your dream clients

Understand your finances in a way that empowers you to make decisions as a business owner

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this course different than any other course?

Fabulous question, I'd love to tell you. I too, am a serial course buyer, but I often feel overwhelmed with the work and underwhelmed with the content. I've gone through this course with a fine-toothed comb to ensure that I've covered everything I can and structured it to MAKE SENSE! There is an order of operations with the lessons and modules because I want you to see how the pieces fit together so you can feel yourself building something incredible. 

Do I have to have Facebook to take advantage of the group board?

Absolutely not. Facebook...Meta? not my favorite platform, so I didn't want it to be a ball & chain to anyone else. The great part of hosting this course on MightyNetworks is that your group chat board is on the same platform as the course itself. No more having to get on Facebook for updates or to seek advice. It's all in one place to keep you focused and on track.

How will the material be taught? Do I have to learn at the same pace as everyone else?

The course material will be taught via audio instruction accompanied with a slide deck. You'll also have a 100+ page workbook so you can work alongside the material as it is taught. For this launch, we will be releasing the modules week by week to evenly pace the content. However, you can always take your time and come back to any section at any point. The course material will take 12 weeks to learn & implement. 

I'm in my busy season!  How much time do I need each week to learn?

I would schedule approximately 4-6 hours per week to get through the content and implement changes. Some modules will be more challenging than others, but consistency is the best way to work your way through the curriculum. Baby steps still get you from point A to point B.
