Description

You're here because you want to become a wedding videographer, right?

Great idea, my friend. 

Average wedding videographers make over $3,000 per wedding. Great videographers can make $10,000+ per wedding. And money isn't the only reason to be a wedding videographer. It is an important job that helps capture a beautiful day and preserve memories for a lifetime.

I went from charging $250 to over $3,000 per wedding in just 12 months. You can do the same!

What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Phil, and I started my own successful wedding videography business in 2011. Plus, I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular photography courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones from this course:

I'm still only partially through the course, but this course is incredibly fun, engaging, and the adventures at the ends of the lessons help you actually set up your own business! - Addie Lynn Minnis

Excellent job, really goes through everything in great detail. - Joel Hiscutt

I went to film school and my college managed to skip over important details and questions in the industry, like contracts and pricing, that this short course helped to educate me in. If there's anything that you feel isn't fully explained in this course then just ask the instructor and he'll answer your questions. - Joseph Sockey
