About This Class

Wedding photography is an amazing skill that is very marketable in any location. You can make $1,000s each weekend shooting weekends wherever you live. In this course, you’ll learn how to interact with and pose a couple. You’ll learn this by watching a live demonstration with the photographer and a couple. You will also have access to a downloadable guide that has 7 poses, and 35 unique shots - a great starting point for your first shoot.

This class is perfect for beginner photographers who want to become wedding photographers or just want to know how to take great portrait shots of couples. We recommend taking the other courses in this series - How to Shoot a Wedding and How to Set Up a Wedding Photography Business - for a complete education in Wedding Photography.

This was so good and insightful! I really enjoyed all the detail and time you put into this class. I feel much more confident and ready to get out there and try this out! Not only that, but I feel now that with more practice I'll only get better! Thank you for covering each thing in detail, from what shots to take, how to pose, how to speak to your couple, and even environment and gear!

I appreciate that it was easy to follow and the basics were laid out. The examples at the end and speaking about the camera settings were extremely helpful. Thank you!
This was by far one of the best wedding and engagement photography classes I've ever taken. Thank you for thoroughly explaining every shot, every lens used, etc. I feel hopeful now that I've taken your course.

My passion is inspiring people through online courses. I've been creating things (videos, photos, businesses, projects) since I was a young child. I've created (produced, shot, edited) thousands of videos over the past five years. Now it is time to teach you!

What would you like to learn?

Would you like to learn motion graphics in After Effects?

Would you like to learn how to shoot & edit videos like a pro?

Would you like to take better photographs?

Would you like to make money teaching online courses like I do?

If you want to do any of these things, just enroll in the course.  And I'm always improving my courses so that they stay up to date and the best that they can be. Check them out, and enroll today!


I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
