Testimonials

"Thank you so incredibly much for the fabulous Teton Pines workshop. Shooting in the stunning Teton area was literally a dream come true. And the inspiration and education from so many power house photographers was mind blowing. My business will now become so much more than I could have imagined before my experience with you all. Now, I want to do another workshop! "

"I loved meeting each and every one of the ladies that attended as well as learning from Jamie, Kortni and Rebecca. This workshop really opened up my eyes to some of the things I have to change about my business. The lessons were packed with tons of information to help our business get to the next level and the photo sessions didn't feel like a competition like in other workshops. The mentors welcomed us to pose or prompt the couples as we wished and we also followed along while the instructors taught us how they usually pose their clients. I loved this workshop in beautiful Arizona and I'm so stoked to attend the next one!!"

"I had an absolute blast meeting all of the mentors as well as attendees. It was so fun to be surrounded be other creatives who had the same passion as me. I walked away feeling completely inspired and motivated to make my business centered around my clients and capturing their stories. The workshop was so well organized and gave every photographer the opportunity to learn and grow! A constant theme I heard from each of the mentors was the importance of light. I never thought about how much light does affect your artistic approach. Thanks to Haley I cant help but look at my shadow everywhere I go... I love watching how light moves and I feel that I am capable of capturing what I see more clearly now! It has also helped me edit faster now that I know what to do before I even snap the picture. Eden inspired me to focus on telling my clients stories. Often times I would just focus on capturing what I wanted but it often failed to tell their story. Now I am capable of capturing their love for them to remember for ever. India did a fabulous job instructing on how to make your clients comfortable and natural in front of you so you can actually capture their story. All in all I not only walked away with so much knowledge but I made friends that I know will last a lifetime. It was the most educational vacation I have ever taken! "

"I’m so incredibly grateful for my experience at Evolve Workshop. To spend the week in one of the most beauty places in the country, to be a part of a community of amazing and encouraging people, and to be poured into and challenged as an individual and business is truly life changing. Jamie and Kortni fostered a space of vulnerability, diverse and honest teaching, and beautiful inspiration. After years of teaching and mentoring others, and thinking I could do it all on my own, I can’t tell you how great the reward has been to finally invest in myself and my business."

"Geoff and I attended Evolve Big Sur in August 2018. This was both our first workshop EVER and we were both a little nervous, skeptical, and unsure of what to expect. Looking back on our experience, we were both blown away. The lineup of speakers were some of the very best in the industry. Jamie and Kortni set a stage for the speakers to offer their hearts and knowledge with such rawness and vulnerability. It made for an experience that was so much more than notebooks and power-points. It was a learning environment that was full of depth, conversation, openness, and emotion. We walked away with not only a huge amount of new information that was instantly applicable to improving our business, but gained new connections and friendships that are invaluable to us in the photography community. Since attending the workshop and applying the practices and skills learned, we are booked out through next year, have successfully raised and maintained our raised prices, and put new systems into place that have sped up our workflow thus given us back more of our life. We also gained new techniques for shooting that have elevated our portfolio and taken our work to the next level.

Along with being badass business babes, Jamie and Kortni both have hearts of gold and are two humans we now consider friends. We can't thank them enough for putting together such amazing leaning experience for us in Evolve workshops. Highly recommend Evolve to photographers looking to improve any aspect of their business!!"

"My experience at Evolve Workshops in Big Sur was undeniably one of the best business decisions I have made to date. Not only did I hear from some photographers who are absolutely killing it in the industry, but I received hands-on practice with live shoots from photographers I totally look up to. Jamie and Kortni poured their hearts into this workshop, and it was totally evident through how “at home” I felt. Being around 30 other photographers who are in different stages was inspiring and encouraging. The authenticity and sincerity shown by all of the speakers is what jumpstarted me on my journey to pour more into my business for the sake of my clients and friends. I can’t wait to see how the Evolve team quite literally “evolves.”

"Spending a full day around amazing women, authentic couples, and beautiful light. I would call that a very good day. Im grateful for the opportunity to teach and learn as well as be surrounded by so many passionate, beautiful creatives, and bomb ball babes! Thank you Evolve Workshops for having me and just being amazing women and roll models. "

Rebecca Johnson "Nkayphoto"

" The Evolve workshop is unlike any other. Having such renown speakers and teacher alone was amazing. I felt like I could approach any one of them as a friend, mentor, and fellow artist to chat about photography, our love of chocolate chip cookies and Cafe Rio, and even about our dogs. My creative cup left Jackson overflowing and I would definitely attend an Evolve workshop again! "

Bri Bergman

"Attending an Evolve Workshop changed my business for the better. It provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to jump start my business and further my skills as a photographer. The styled shoots improved my portfolio and helped me gain content to book similar styles in dreamy locations. Jamie and Kortni are dedicated to personally help you succeed. I couldn't have asked for better mentors. I attended a workshop with several presenters that added variety in subjects discussed. I learned that there is not just one right way to do things and having the different options presented helped me choose what best fit my business. This workshop was such an amazing experience at an incredible price!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! You guys went above + beyond! I thought my business was good before I went + NOW?! Now, I have to re-think my whole business + dive in with an open heart + mind. You guys changed the game. Thank you for opening my eyes to a different side of the business that sometimes slips away. You all are truly amazing at what you do + I was blown away by the love + support that was provided daily. You never let a frown sit on someones face, you were ready with open arms. I have been to workshops before + I would hands down recommend you to someone else.I loved the amount of learning + hands on work we got to do! You didn't just stay on the surface. You put sweat + tears into this! Yes, yes, yes to having another workshop! Maybe next time Iceland? I'm in!"

Summer Luna

"I had such an amazing time at Evolve Workshops and loved every minute of it! The instructors were all so friendly and open and I learned so much valuable information and skills that would have taken years to figure out on my own. The atmosphere of the workshop was so joyful and positive and I had a really lovely time with everyone!"

Vanessa Renae

"I attended the Evolve Workshop in Teton Pines and it was one of my favorite experiences to date. It changed the way I want to structure my photography business. I just graduated & am so glad that I went to this when I did because now, from the foundation, I can create a branding and a structure (financially & creatively) that is 100% me and is something I am proud of. This workshop equipped me in so many areas, even some that I didn’t realize affected this industry so much. If you are a photographer, no matter if you are just starting out or just wanting to look at your work and see it as a reflection of you that you are proud of, this workshop is a MUST for you. I can’t wait until I can attend another Evolve Workshop in the future!!"

Libby Moore

"I went to the NYC evolve workshop as shooting in a city environment was something outside of my norm and outside of my comfort level.  The environment setup by Jamie & Kortni was supportive and informative.  I've been in this business for a while and I've been to other workshops, I've heard the same basic structure for how to get the clients I'm after, but what I was lacking was the application of these things to my business.  J + K did lots of Q&A sessions as well as a one on one that helped me think about what was blocking me from reaching the level of success I wanted, as well as immediate steps I can take and a plan to start creating that success.  This is something I haven't seen before and is much appreciated :)   The shoots were very open to let attendees grab the shots they wanted, and J + K were open about their settings and there to help with anything we struggled with.  Can't wait for my next adventure with them! "

Lindsey O Sullivan

"Evolve workshops was a huge breath of fresh air! Kortni and Jamie created a environment that cultivated community, skill building and got down to the business of running a photography business. It was really wonderful being around people that wanted you to ask questions so that you could get the most out of your time spent with them. It was packed with loads of value and information that you could hit the ground running with the next day. I’ve already started implementing some of the things they suggested and i’m already noticing a difference. This workshop was definitely worth the investment!"

Regina Jaegar

"The workshop was helpful in many ways. Being supported by women who truly working in the field doing my dream job was so beneficial and encouraging. Jamie and Kortni were both were so supportive and caring. I love how candidly they spoke about business! This workshop was so re-energizing for my business and my confidence. I have so many ideas that I took away and specific actions to take to help me reach my ideal client. Thank you both so much. I’m overjoyed that I was able to be apart of the event."

Attending Evolve Workshop in Joshua Tree last October was one of the highlights of my year. It was SUCH a fun experience that I attended with one of my best friends and I have nothing but positive things to say. I really appreciated how small and intimate of a group if was because I feel like it really allowed for each of us to get quality one on one attention and personal time with both Instructors. Jamie and Kortni were so amazingly kind, open and approachable and I simply adore them both. I thought the styled shoots were CRAZY good (LIKE REALY REALLY GOOD) and they TOTALLY EXCEEDED my expectations. Jamie’s styling skills of the GORGEOUS models was BEYOND and I died at each one bc they looked SO DANG GOOD. Many of the images I created at Evolve are some of my absolute favorite to date and I honestly feel that they helped me grow as a photographer and grow my brand by helping me create such awesome content for social media and my website. These two ladies are such talented photographers and awesome humans and I cannot wait to attend more in the future. EVOLVE OR BUST!!!

Alyssa Hagan

"Evolve Workshops was the first workshop experience I had ever participated in, and saying I had no idea what to expect would be an understatement! I went in only knowing I loved Jamie and Kortni's work and a hope to glean as much knowledge from them as possible...and maybe meet some awesome other creatives along the way. I got all that and more!

The ease and kindness from both Jamie and Kortni was the perfect start to an amazing weekend! Days full of styled shoots (gorgeous models in abundance), amazing creative women (some of whom I now call friends, and all of which I admire immensely) and to top it off the opportunity to sit down one on one with both of these talented gals and pick their brains. Being able to watch someone you admire in their element on a shoot was priceless. Being able to stand near by them and do your thing, while having the opportunity to literally show them your camera and settings (and vice versa) while you work is THE BEST learning experience I could have had.

If I could do every workshop these ladies hosted I would!

Thank you Evolve Workshops!"

Melinda Roth

"I attended my first Evolve Workshop in Joshua Tree, and let’s be real, I was extremely nervous. Luckily, Kortni and Jamie were amazing hosts and made everyone feel included and welcomed. The workshop was filled with so many talented artists that encouraged each other in such a positive way. It’s so hard to pick the best part from the event because there were seriously so many! Although I would have to say the thing I gained the most from was the one on one business advice. This really helped me get an idea of how to set up my business for success. Everything was so organized yet fun and productive at the same time. I will definitely be recommending this workshop to fellow photographers!"
