WE'VE STRUGGLED TO...
Pay the bills on time
Find our ideal clients
Capture the best footage
Create solid edits
But after 800+ weddings combined, we have learned a thing or two on how to build a six-figure business while doing the thing we love. This wasn’t an easy journey. Learn from our mistakes, build a business that inspires, and create the life you want! All while taking YEARS off your learning curve.
HOW IT STARTED...
Started out in 2013 booking weddings FOR FREE, then finally sold some packages at $1200
Started in 2007 shooting weddings for $750....
HOW IT'S GOING..IN 2022
Average booking of over $9,000 for 2022. This is up from $3000 average in 2018!
Averaging over $12,500 per wedding with all add-ons. Booked a package worth over $18,000!
In 2021, I paid myself 6 figures from my wedding video business alone. I shot 18 weddings, and had over 30 weekends off (because I wanted to take them off, not because I was forced to). I spent so much quality time with my family, and set my own schedule. I went to my daughter’s games. Took my wife out on dates, and had TIME to be a father to my kids.
Life wasn’t always like this. In 2009 I remember choosing between paying my water, gas, and electric bill each month (that suuucked). We didn’t have food in our refrigerator. I didn’t have time to spend with my family or friends. I was stuck. It was a dark time. I drew the line in the sand when I ran out of gas one day, but had no money to fill up my tank. It lit a fire under my butt to figure out this wedding videography business. I knew there was a way to make good money doing this. Over the next 10 years I figured out how to start making real money doing weddings. I remember the first year I paid myself over $100,000 and crying as I showed my wife. I got REALLY passionate about helping others, just like you, get out of financial trouble by working hard, and building a solid business. That is what I was put on this earth to do, and am so thankful for each DM I receive from our students telling me they are now able to pay the bills, and then some. You too, can do this. I would LOVE to be your personal mentor, and show you exactly what I have done to take my life from barely enough, to overflow.
In 2017 I was able to leave my 9-5 and fully support my family with our wedding videography business. In 2021, I was able to book my largest package of all time - $12,500! The 2022 wedding season is on track to being our biggest ever, averaging over $8500 per wedding! I booked $26,000 worth of weddings in 1 week, using the principles of this course.
I vividly remember one of the worst days of my adult life.. it was one of those gut wrenching moments when I checked my banking app on my phone, while out of state, and having to call my wife to tell her that we had $137.00 COMBINED in our personal and business checking accounts. This was not my best moment. I decided then and there, I had enough. Something had to change. Then I had to make that embarrassing call to my parents and ask for a loan. I was mortified and felt like a failure - imposter syndrome was HUGE! Can you relate? Since that day I've been more purposeful with my business and my money. I've figured out how to make six figures in this wedding videography industry, and be more purposeful with my time and energy. In the last few years we have gone from barely squeaking by, with no direction, to being fully in control. And as of a few months ago, Jennifer and I were able to write a check and pay off our last student loan debt. I can't tell you what that feels like. It is possible to achieve wildly amazing success doing this, and we want to show you how. If I can dig myself out of a hole like that, you most certainly can!
THE HOW TO FILM WEDDINGS PODCAST
Back in 2018...
After Nick second shot a wedding with John, and saw that John was charging nearly $10,000 for that wedding video, he began to ask questions (like seriously, was this possible??).
John had questions for Nick, too, about improving his story telling. Instead of just trading secrets, The How To Film Weddings Brand was born! We knew we had stumbled onto something incredible that could change our industry.
