Ready to build a thriving elopement business on the east coast?!
Do you think dream elopements are only on the west coast?
So, you know elopements have your heart and are ready to move from traditional wedding days or hobby photography into elopements full-time.
You've changed your Instagram bio or added elopements to the services on your website, but people just aren't chomping at the bit or ready to book.
You probably see photographers on the west coast doing elopements full-time and wonder if maybe a move is the only answer.
You have a vision of what an incredible elopement could look like, but no one else seems to be able to picture it.
You're ready to take your elopement business to the next level, but your inbox is empty. No inquiries in sight.
The key to booking East Coast elopements is showing couples what's possible... oh, and SEO.
You have a clear path to booking out your calendar with elopements: A marketing plan and a clear brand voice to speak to your ideal couples.
You have 2 full elopements to show your couples and advertise their dream day directly to them. They don't need to visualize it, their dream day is shown to them.
Your website speaks directly to the couples that you are looking to book and converts them to paying clients!
Your website is actually showing up on google so people can find you and those inquiries begin rolling in.
You have a group of like-minded photographers as friends so you can bounce ideas around and support each other on your journey to being a bad-ass boss.
That is exactly what you will leave with when coming to Camp Summit + Shutter.

Meet your Hosts
We are Kasie + Dan an elopement photo and video team based in the Pocono Mountains. We will be sharing our favorite spots with you within the area and helping you to smoothly transition into the elopement space in the same way we have built our elopement photography and wedding venue businesses. Both businesses were created from styled shoots and we feel that three portfolio-building shoots are the perfect number to break into a new niche or market. We specialize in SEO and creating unique copy for your business and can't wait to help you succeed!
Meet your Planner
