CREATIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER MENTORING
In a past life I was a teacher. I taught English and Art and I absolutely LOVED it. I gave up teaching after 10 years of service because I had my son and the commute alongside running my business was just crazy.
Fast forward 5 years, I have shot close to 200 weddings and I feel I have a lot of helpful, practical knowledge that I would be very happy to share. I absolutely love my work and the opportunities it brings me. If being a creative wedding photographer is what you want to do then I would love to help you out.
I am stoked to be able to offer a limited number of 121 mentoring sessions each year. The short of it is…
You can have my undivided attention for an hour over Skype or up to a full day with me at my home with a scrummy lunch included. Sessions take place either via Skype or at my home in Northamptonshire, which is not as northern as it sounds! I’m just between London and Birmingham in the Midlands. As I am generally out shooting at the weekends sessions are only bookable Monday to Friday. You can choose to add a portfolio building shoot to your session too if you would like to. I will offer second shooting opportunities to my mentees that have shot alongside me at their session.
You can ask me anything. I am totally open, honest and my aim is always to support you to be the photographer you want to be. It doesn’t matter where you are at on your business or photographic journey, I’d love to come along side you and share what I know. Sessions are totally individual and planned around your needs.
I am really happy to cover the following topics: workflow, editing, image critique, pulling together your best portfolio, social media, blogging, practical tips to managing a live shoot with a couple, ‘unposing’ your couples, website critique, marketing your business, managing client expectations, customer care, how I coax all the joy, finding inspiration outside of wedding photography, branding, the client experience, what I wish I’d known when I first started out or anything else business related.
Skype sessions are £75/hr and Half Day Sessions at my home are £200/ Full Day with lunch and a couple shoot are £350.
Worth mentioning that my support doesn’t end once your session ends – after the session you will be invited to my private Facebook group where you can always ask me anything and I will always do my best to help you.
If you would like to book mentoring with me then please do drop me a message.
What can I say, if you are a photographer at any stage in your career I cannot recommend Jordanna highly enough for a 121 session. I really enjoyed the whole experience and there were several “light bulb moments” throughout the day. Jordanna was welcoming and very open, sharing everything with me, and also organised a shoot with a local couple which i found invaluable. As a special touch Jordanna is also there to support you beyond the day itself. I’ve second shot with her at a wedding which was a fabulous experience. I would say don’t hesitate.

I met Jordanna when I was a bridesmaid at a wedding she was shooting. I was thinking about setting up my own photography company at the time and I was really impressed with her style and branding. We chatted about business set up, costs and planning in the morning, then we met up with a couple for a shoot in the afternoon. I’ve also been lucky enough to second shoot for Jordanna at two incredible weddings. Working alongside her has really helped my confidence and my work has definitely improved. She’s such a supporter of my business and we’ve become friends. Allison xALLISON DEWEY PHOTOGRAPHY
Jordanna was so open, honest and friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with her. To watch how she shoots and gently directs her couples was so inspiring and I took away lots of useful tips to help me when I am out with my own clients. We spent a lot of time talking about the importance of branding and she gave me valuable and supportive crit of my current portfolio. She has continued to support me two years on and I say if you are looking for a mentor who is full of enthusiasm, genuinely open and will help you speed up your workflow then give Jordanna a call!
