Multipassionate business owners, award winning wedding photographers, educators, content creators and dog-obsessed ambiverts
NAMED ONE OF THE 30 RISING STARS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY NEW YORK'S RANGEFINDER MAGAZINE
We created The Curated Empire Academy as a place for wedding photographers and wedding industry professionals to find valuable education that doesn't shy away from the real talk and web design that helps you build your curated brand and purposeful business.
Our story starts a few years back, just after we delivered our last wedding of the season and we felt so tired. Not just physically, but most importantly, mentally and creatively. We felt ready to quit. We realized how unhappy we were with our business. And we're here to share with you all the ups and downs, all the valleys and mountaintops we had to go through to be where we are today. To help you take your business towards your goals. To help you achieve the vision you are dreaming of. Sharing how we did it so you can apply it to your brand to achieve the bussiness of your dreams. Are you ready for change?
