About Marissa’s Mentorships

Mentor With Marissa

7 years ago I started my photography business and it was an absolute mess. I didn’t have a good website, my editing style was inconsistent, I had no idea how to price my work and communicating with clients was my worst nightmare. BUT, what I did have was my camera and the passion to learn how to become a successful photographer.

Over the past 7+ years I (very slowly) learned how to grow my business into what it is today. From building my website to getting clients to trust me to filing taxes and creating a consistent style for my brand, I figured it all out. It was A LOT of trial and error and I believe it took way longer than it had to.

Over the past 7+ years I (very slowly) learned how to grow my business into what it is today. From building my website to getting clients to trust me to filing taxes and creating a consistent style for my brand, I figured it all out. It was A LOT of trial and error and I believe it took way longer than it had to.

I can’t help but think that if I had someone to educate me on the business side of photography early on, my success would have come a heck of a lot sooner. If I had a mentor, I wouldn’t have had to re-build my website 3 times (true story). I wouldn’t have lost so many potential clients because my communication sucked. And, I would have known how to pose those awkward couples that gave me nothing to work with at a shoot. 

The Goal of My Mentorships

If I had someone to turn to that could answer my questions when I was just starting my business, I would have saved SO MUCH time and money over the past 7+ years. 

I want to be that person for other photographers. My goal is to form relationships with my mentees and see their businesses go from “part time with 3 weddings a year” to full-time and booked out two years in advance (without spending thousands of dollars trying all the wrong things).

If that sounds like something you’re interested in, you’re in the right place!

Choosing The Right Mentorship For You

I decided to offer two different types of mentorships because I know that everyone is in a different place with their business. Some of people have been doing photography for a year or so and just have a few random topics they need to learn more about. Other people are exactly how I was, passionate about this field without a clue on how to start.

If you have questions about the different mentor sessions I offer, check out the links below! 

Mini Mentor Sessions – $75

If you have been a photographer for over a year but think there are specific topics you could be better educated on, a Mini Mentor Session is for you!

Each mini session will cover a topic of your choosing. During your session we will hop on facetime and I will walk you through everything I know about the topic and answer any questions you may have! You will also receive educational materials that will help you put everything you learned to use moving forward!
