The Styled Shoot Workshop

Learn how to style, plan and execute stunning, on-trend, styled photo shoots that will get your work published every time and get you booking your dream clients...

What is the Styled Shoot Workshop?



It’s almost 2020, which means it’s about time to start setting those New Year’s resolutions! Maybe you have a successful, established business, or maybe you’re just starting out! Either way, I’d pretty much bet you’re hoping to book clients who resonate with you and your brand this coming wedding season. As wedding photographers, we spend most of our time making visions come to life for our clients, leaving off-season our time to start creating work that lights us up creatively. You probably already know that styled shoots are a great way to exercise those creative muscles, but you also might feel a little overwhelmed by where to start – how do I contract models? How do I create one-of-a-kind designs that will get published? Where can I find vendors to collaborate with me, and what do I say to them? How do I build networking opportunities from my shoot? Planning a styled shoot can be an extremely rewarding process, but there are a whole bunch of logistics to take into account. That’s why I’m jumping in to help! 


I’ve styled, planned, photographed and published several styled photo shoots ranging from smaller budget productions to real-deal mini weddings with $2000+ budgets on all of the following blogs + magazines:


Green Wedding Shoes

Junebug Weddings

What’s Up Weddings Magazine

Bride + Tonic

Festival Brides

Shenandoah Valley Bride

Dirty Boots + Messy Hair Blog

Wandering Weddings

"Alexi Mari, has taken an incredible amount of crucial information and condensed it into an easy to follow, easy to understand video series that will allow for photographers of all levels to create their very own, unique styled shoot. If you are planning on designing a styled shoot her video series is a must-have guide to ensure you aren’t missing any important pieces and to make sure you save as much money as you can during the process."

Through my love of design, years of experience in product + wedding photography, working alongside talented vendors, and a whole lotta trial and error, I understand what needs to go into a styled shoot for it to be successful (both for your brand, and on the publication end). These courses are going to walk you through from start to finish, and teach you how to take your shoot from the planning and conceptualization stage, to getting published and creating revenue for your business. I even take you guys behind the scenes of a real styled shoot that I planned to show you how I shoot, set-up my spaces and manage the day! Here are just a few of the things this workshop covers:


Setting a Goal with Purpose

Getting Vendors on Board

Essential Elements of Design

How to Ensure Your Shoot is Published

Styling Tablescapes

BTS of a Real Styled Shoot

How to Create + Photograph Flat Lays

How to be Unique in Design

Creating Revenue from Your Shoot

Logistics of Communication

Designing a Stand-out Ceremony Space

Protocol for Working with Vendors

Maximizing Networking Opportunities

Creating a Killer Submission Pitch

"I have been counting down the days for your workshop release ever since your free webinar, so as soon as the email announcing the workshop download came through I went to watch them all. (Can we talk about how cute your outfits are??) I took pages of notes and am so excited to use all of your tips on my upcoming styled shoots. (After watching, I decided to set up two styled shoots in Austin, TX in January. I'm a Virginia photographer, so I'm really looking forward to the opportunities this could potentially bring!) After watching your workshop, I feel so much more confident on who I should reach out to to collaborate, how and when I should communicate with the team, and the best ways to capitalize on the styled shoot. ROI is SO important!"

My focus in creating this workshop is to give you guys as much valuable information as possible so that you walk away feeling FULLY confident to create your shoot without needing to hire a planner or stylist. This is going to give you the ability to stretch your budget further, to make your shoot benefit you and your team beyond some pretty photos and a blog post, and to help you reap direct booking results for the New Year.
