Game Changing Course

"This course set my business up for long term success!"

"It gave me the motivation and practical steps to implement change while still leaving room for it to be my own unique business. After completing each lesson I was left with not just long term action plans but immediate ideas and tiny tweaks I made in my business!! I cannot wait to look back in a year from now and see how much the course changed me and my business for the better!"

Marina Darbonne

As someone new to wedding photography, there are so many things I just did not know yet. After taking this course, I feel much more confident in myself and my business. I don't have to waste time figuring things out on my own and can now know I am headed in the right direction."

" I am confident that I will be able to grow my business into my full-time career and quit my 9-5! I am so happy that I invested in myself and this course.

I didn’t know what I was doing. I spent month after month researching tips, Googling my 5,634 questions, and making more mistakes than I can count. 

It was frustrating and time consuming, but after years of trial and error, I finally learned how to build a successful, sustainable luxury wedding photography business. The good news? You can skip all those years of costly mistakes. 

When I discovered my love for photography, I was studying architecture, but I knew that it was time to due something I was truly passionate about. 

I wanted to be a photographer, but not just any photographer. I wanted to photograph luxury weddings and make a name for myself in the competitive industry. But unlike architecture school . . .

There is no school for wedding photographers.

Let me teach you everything I know about luxury wedding photography.

- Catherine

You're going to love what I'm teaching in this course.

this is what i want!


This course is absolutely for you if you want to become a full-time wedding photographer. There is a lot of great information in the course that I have not learned before. I totally recommend this course for those who are serious about making wedding photography a career."

"Catherine is an awesome educator. She is honest and her personality is great. She is helpful during the learning process. She will be there to guide you along the way.

I've built the photography business          lifestyle you're dreaming of . . .


1. Photographers who are obsessed with making the most money possible, no matter what it takes

2. Photographers who talk a big game but haven't actually built the business or life they're teaching about

If you've been looking into luxury wedding photography education and support, you've probably found two things:


Over the last 15 years, I've built a multiple-six-figure wedding photography business while only booking 25(ish) weddings a year. I value my time just as much as I value my revenue, so I refuse to sacrifice either of them.

I created this course because I saw a huge gap in our industry. There's a lack of compassion, authenticity, and open-handed support – but those are the things I care about most. 

Your success inspires me. And I want to help as many aspiring luxury wedding photographers build their dream business and lifestyle.

"I have increased my prices and gotten more referrals!"

""My favorite part was the pricing; that alone was worth the course investment! I enjoyed the live calls and after each module I felt inspired and wanted to continue on. (This isn’t something I’ve had with other courses!) I have been able to increase my pricing and gained a lot of knowledge on marketing and referrals that I'm already so excited to implement."

Hailey Tate

You want a wedding photography business that supports your dream lifestyle.

But it takes years to get there on your own. Let me speed up your timeline and give you everything you need to book out your luxury wedding photography business now. 

Yes! You can have it.

Want to be the photographer – not the accountant, client manager, or marketing director

Dream of being a full-time, luxury wedding photographer – but you don't know how to get there

Want an easy-to-follow system that actually works – not generic "how to" advice or basic tips

You're the perfect fit for this course if you . . .

I bought another photographer‘s course right before you announced yours – and I love that you have a workbook and all of the content as videos. I only have 300+ page PDFs to try to make myself read on a screen, and it’s hard for me to want to work through the course because of it. I don’t like reading on screens. I want paper, or videos to listen to and make notes during."

"Not only do you go over the big things, like posing in client relationships, you also addressed things like how to organize your business. And that is something that isn’t being talked about. Definitely a favorite part for me.

The modules are short & sweet, but packed with goodness!"

The way Catherine Guidry intentionally taught the course from start to finish enabled the whole group to learn and then take action in our own business no matter if we had been in the industry 3, 5 or 10 years."

"There are so many options for education out there but this course I felt offered a unique outlook from someone who is not only a great photographer and business woman but an individual who loves her job, family, clients and fellow photographers.

Wedding Email Templates

A helpful resource to build and customize your own email flow throughout the full cycle of working with your clients from initial inquiry to gallery delivery.

INITIAL AND Wedding Day QuestionnaireS 

These are the exact questionnaires we send out to our clients. The initial questionnaire is sent to a new inquiry and helps us prepare for the consult call.  The wedding day questionnaire goes out just before the event and helps us plan the wedding day photography. 

Wedding Photography Timeline

Having a structured photography timeline can really make the difference between a streamlined day and a chaotic one. This timeline will help you map out what makes sense for a wedding and provide the template to create that conversation with your client.

"Booked 3 days after finishing the course!"

"Since starting the course, I've been working faster because of the knowledge I've gained! Finally, I sold my first two wedding albums using a la carte products during the booking process. This has been one of the best investments I've made this year for myself and my business; I literally used the FTWP strategies in my next meeting with a potential client, and she booked us three days later! Cat is an excellent educator who is passionate to share her knowledge."

I realized although I wasn’t booking the number of weddings per year that I wanted all my clients were booking my previous highest package and then adding on extra. I’m excited to implement this to increase my bookings. I also know have a newfound awareness of how I come across to my clients and how to ensure the wedding day is about them!"

"My biggest win has been reworking my pricing and increasing my offerings! I also gained a lot of knowledge on marketing and receiving referrals!

Hailey Tate

I found learning from Catherine extremely helpful! Initially I was hesitant to spend money on the business, but ultimately decided it was time to up level my business!

Catherine was so transparent and answered all of my questions: everything from pricing to emails, social media and web presence. Most importantly, she helped me identify my ideal client which will allow me to move forward from here! 

"Catherine helped pave the way for more business and more joy-filled work."

Take a look

I'm wrapping up my sixth season of shooting weddings. This course provided confirmation that I'm actually doing a lot of things right, but also addressed plenty of areas in my business that need tweaking.  As a wedding photographer, I feel we should all be so lucky to be taught the in's & out's from Catherine Guidry herself. She's included it all in this course. Everything you know you need help with & everything you didn't know you needed help with. I recommend this course 100 times over."

"Catherine so graciously gives every tool needed to improve every part of your business. I needed the Full Time Wedding Photography Course to help me take my business to the top tier.

Education is not a small investment. Catherine is truly everything I believe a good mentor should be. Her willingness dig into her experience, and give real, truthful answers truly sets her apart.

I took everything  talked about and made some major changes to my business! And for the first time in my business, I have no doubt that I am going to be successful. And priceless! 

"No matter the topic, she was willing to be 100% transparent."

chelsea rousey

Honestly, I never thought I’d be able to be a full-time wedding photographer until NOW! It has motivated me to restructure my business and have everything in place before making the decision. Some call it a “leap of faith.” While it is sort of that; Catherine is my parachute in my leap. She has given me the tools I’ve needed to move forward. I can now love and serve my clients better than I have ever been able to while still staying professional and true to my self and them. I am honored to have learned from the best in the industry."

"Speaking from the heart when I say 'This course has changed everything in my business & outlook on life.' It has given me the knowledge & power to do so many things I’ve wanted to do & not wanted to do. 

Kelsey Chauvin
