Education, templates, and resources for photographers

Because the best way to grow

is to learn

Hey! I'm Kelsey, a full-time traveling elopement and intimate wedding photographer living in Lafayette, Indiana.

I'm passionate about teaching and learning, and I don't believe that cost should be a barrier to improving your skills. I've started this education collective to share knowledge all about running a photography business from the ground

up, featuring tips not just from me but from other industry professionals too.

Find lots of free knowledge in the blog, links to discounted business programs, and soon, websites and templates!

I'm so excited you're here. Tell me what you want to see next, and how you want to be involved.

Social media made easy

I used to hate writing social media captions, planning out what photos to post when, even remembering to post photos every day... it's not fun. Planoly makes this all better, and I can schedule my social media posts anywhere from hours to days to months in advance! Save captions, auto-post photos, learn the best times to post for engagement, save hashtag groups so you don't have to type them every time, and more. Planoly makes social media EASY!

TO ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ART OF OBSERVATION. IT'S ABOUT FINDING SOMETHING INTERESTING IN AN ORDINARY PLACE... I'VE FOUND IT HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH THE THINGS YOU SEE AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HOW YOU SEE THEM.

Learn in person

I love this business so much, and I want you to be the best you can be at it, too. I offer mentoring on all aspects of running a photography business tailored to you and your needs. Let's chat shooting, posing, editing, photo delivery, client relationships, finances, marketing, and more.

Experiences include one-time video chats or multi-month immersive learning with on-location shoots!

Got some ideas?

Ex-clueless photographer out to help you learn faster

Yeah,  I know how you feel. Like every photographer ever wants you to pay for education and learning, and everyone claims they alone have the secret to success.

It's just not true. Lots of us know lots of things, most of us have learned it from each other, and no one has a secret to success. That's why I think learning about running your business should be as easy as possible.
