There's no other educational program for film and hybrid photographers that melds artistry, financials, and marketing so you can raise your rates and uplevel your business like The Abundance Plan.

for you, from kt merry

Go ahead and pat yourself on the back–you’ve done a LOT of things right as you’ve built your photography business from the ground up.

✓ Gushing clients? Check.

You’ve reached a level of photography acumen with:

✓ An expertly curated feed reminiscent of fashion or wedding editorials? ‎Check.

✓ People skills that make multitasking between switching lenses and carrying on a conversation at the same time a breeze? Check.

… but you're also not a doe-eyed newbie anymore. Don't get me wrong—you still LOVE your craft, but when you see a destination photographer now, you know it's not a life of Ritz Carltons, catered meals and hired cars. You also realize everyone under the age of 39 is or knows a photographer (and somehow they all charge less than you).

Cheers! You've already made it this far.

You've nearly tapped your pricing bracket in your city, but can't figure out how to break into the next level and make that magical destination wedding or that amazing planner on your professional bucket list happen ...

You feel like you're in the creative lull of capturing the same whirl of venues (and slightly-behind wedding trends), but can’t figure out how to stretch your aesthetic (and get the images to show for it) without booking *another* styled shoot workshop...

You're making a living and creating great work, but you can't IMAGINE hustling like this in five years (heck, even two!). You want to get out of the dollars-for-hours racket and build a sustainable, profitable business that you actually *like.*

You're a little in awe  (okay, let's just say it: jealous) of the teeming hordes of photographers plastering incredible work all over Facebook and Insta, but you don't live THERE and your market isn't like THAT and your couples don't all look like effing MODELS, so how are you supposed to keep up?

You'd love to find a way to make your photography business give back — and have time to take off for passion projects... or more time with your family... or geez, even a vacation! — but who has time for sabbaticals when you're depending on a paycheck?

Does any of this sound familiar?

You're tired of investing in conferences, retreats and workshops that leave you 150% OVER the fluff, blowing smoke, and the swag bags—and like you wasted a wad of cash on a lackluster professional vacation while not actually LEARNING anything …

We've all been there! But what if you could break free from feeling fenced-in by your own pricing and market—and jump to that next bridge with a photography business that can sustain the next decade (or two, or three, or four) of your career?

With over 10,000+ hours clocked in the fine art film market serving clients and consulting with other photographers since 2007, I've seen it all, and I'm here to help.

GOOD NEWS:

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF:

Hi THERE!
I'm KT Merry,

And, sure, those names are big and still give me goosebumps—but I know you can get there, too. I’ve seen trends come and go, technology change, and the birth of social media (YIKES!)—each making their mark on our beloved niche.

I've had 13 years (yep, THIRTEEN!) of experience at the top tier of the wedding industry, working with the best vendors and publications in the world.  You could say I've learned a thing or two (million) along the way... but one thing has remained the same for me: staying true to my vision. 

Here’s the deal: as creative entrepreneurs who take big risks to pave a unique path with the work we’re best at, we should all have blossoming photography businesses that allow us to have the success AND the freedom that we desire. 

It’s not about making a choice between one or the other—I’m here to tell you that you absolutely don’t have to choose. You can create abundance from your home office.

But before we talk strategy, it's time for the tough love.

How will your business withstand your inevitable burnout? Because (spoiler alert!) if you haven't experienced it yet, you will. You simply can't go on like this forever.... shooting wedding after wedding, investing in workshop after styled shoot, hoping that if you post enough pretty images on Instagram at the right time with the right caption, your ideal clients will magically start knocking on your door... and that somehow, someway, you can break out of the box and find the kind of success that actually looks like FREEDOM.

What if you could move into the luxury market and your location didn't hinder you at all?

What if you could find the clients who would pay to fly you to where they are—the ones who don't care WHERE you live, because they expect to pay travel?

What if you could double (triple?) your rates *AND* cut your workload in half?

What if your business *gave* you life instead of consuming so damn much of it? 

For more than a decade, I've showed drained photographers how to build an alluring, exclusive brand that's equal parts attainable and sustainable.

Because it's nearly impossible to raise your rate a grand or two (there's no way you could do that without struggling for bookings) without a proven plan in place.

Because you can't quite see yourself eight years down the road doing business like you are now.  

Because you need guidance, inspiration, and a serious fast-track to the next level before another year goes by doing the same old thing. One that is real, proven, and gets to the heart of the problem and the solution.

Because your version of success or abundance needs to be defined by YOU and you alone— and it's going to feel like a neverending jury duty stint if you can't set up your business to work for you.


That’s why I've put my entire business-building plan in one place for you:

The complete—and first-of-its-kind—guide to building a true, luxury photography brand that attracts your dream clients, fuels your creativity, and builds a profitable, sustainable bottom line.

Introducing

Ready to up your average booking per client? 

Want to have clarity about where you are going with your business—and the tools to build the life you’ve imagined?

Where Are You Going & Why?

Module 1

Why having 20,000 followers on Instagram or even landing the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings isn't enough to succeed in the modern industry landscape ... and what creatives who make the leap to successful entrepreneurs know IS enough.

Module 2

The Entrepreneur Within

The ICA Deep Dive—I'll never forget waiting with Chad (my husband + business partner) in  Naples Beach for an engagement shoot. When the couple stepped out of their hunter green Range Rover and bounded up to us with wide smiles and arms outstretched for hugs, I knew I was finally attracting my kind of ideal client. I'll show you how to know YOUR ICA (Ideal Client Avatar) like the back of your hand.

Clueless about running the numbers? Here's the advice I give to EVERY photographer—how to figure out what your P&L looks like (and what the heck it even is). Discover exactly how much profit you make on each and every package you offer—and how to make immediate changes that put more dollars in your pocket—I'm breaking it ALL down here.

Do you get awkward, look down, or fumble saying your price point to your client? To fully believe in the value of your price, you first need to understand it ... and here are my 10 tips to confident pricing.

When raising your rates is in order ... all while reducing the number of weddings you're shooting. Plus, four things you MUST do before you jump from charging 4 to 5 digits (which is totally in your wheelhouse, I promise).

We’ll dive into one of my favorite profit topics and that’s impact. With profits come power and the power to do good. And not only is it your responsibility to build “doing good” into your business plan, but it’s also good for business. 

If you aren’t intimately familiar with your numbers you only know a small part of the story. It’s a bit like being married to someone with a double life ... and I totally did this, ignoring the numbers for my first seven years in business.  Maybe money is ~inappropriate~ dinner table conversation in most families, but not in the Abundance Plan family—if anything, profit is key to making sure we can continue to serve out of our greater purpose.

We’ll work towards filling your funnel with ideal, qualified leads, and I’ll show you how to do more with less effort, plus scale up your business without sacrificing quality (or control).

what people are saying

the doors may have just opened, but the early reviews are incredible!

“I went from having literally no direction on which path to take when considering taking my business to the next level to having a specific path lined out for how to get me exactly where I want to be.”

_ Jaimee Morse

student testimonials

There has never been a better time than right now to grab your business and life by the reins and point it in the direction of your dreams.

 I created this for those who want to be in it for the long game.  Those who want to have a bigger impact in their world.

I’ve spent years educating myself in programs including Goldman Sachs 10k Small Businesses and seeking mentorship from business owners and gurus far more knowledgeable than myself. I’ve tirelessly pursued the recipe for success in the field of wedding photography and have created a guide, a roadmap for success that—until now—I’ve only talked through with one-on-one clients, which runs about $1250 an hour. 
But there are way too many talented people out there not paying attention to what’s possible. Calling it quits before they should.

PLUS, enroll now and you'll get these bonus trainings

The #1 thing I heard when I was talking to my students about creating this program was this: "KT, what I really want is personalized feedback and coaching." Done. In this community, you'll get a value-filled (and private) forum to ask me any questions you want as you work through the curriculum—seriously, don't hold back. Due to my travel schedule, I only take a limited number of one-on-one coaching calls a year at around $1250 each, but here? I'm setting aside time each week to dive into your questions, just for students inside The Abundance Plan.

I’m hosting six weekly LIVE Facebook Lives, so you can truly ask me anything, and get my eyes on your business.
And more, you’ll be surrounded by a community of like-minded creatives who are looking to uplevel their game, just like you are. When you have a big vision, it becomes far more powerful when you’re around others casting big visions too. This is your chance to network with the best; curate a supportive, knowledgeable tribe; and share in the abundance together! (Because there IS enough to go around…)

The Abundance Plan is the first of its kind for film and hybrid photographers—I’d know. I’ve been in this industry for a long, long time (hello, pre-social media days!).

And your alternative to The Abundance Plan? Well, you could work with a coach one-on-one.
And with this, there are a couple of ways it usually goes down:

Version No. 01

You get a business coach.

You invest in a set number of sessions and get to pick a luxury photographer's brain (they may or may not have a custom curriculum to work through with you—some do, some don't!), and they'll charge anywhere between $750 and $2500/hour to unveil the secrets behind their business. When your sessions are up, it's time to refill the account. Valuable? Heck yes, but for many of us it's simply unsustainable. 

Version No. 02

You go to a workshop—and snag a few hours solo with the lead.

These will run you anywhere from $3500 to $10,000+ (styled shoots for a week against a Paris chateau setting, anyone?). SO many of my students have gone this route, and I'm a big fan of workshops, too! However, after a certain point, it's easy to get dissatisfied with the results. Swag bag? Check. Portfolio shots? Check. But valuable, needle-moving educational content that you've *not* already heard before on some podcast? Eehhhh—more times than not, the reality of our industry is that this just doesn't happen. 

To be clear, workshops are a GREAT investment ... it's just pretty dang hard to find one that:

Isn’t a glorified vacation. We’re talking numbers, ROI, getting to the next level. While I’m always the first one ready for a glass of wine in a stunning setting, I know when it’s time to cut the fluff and get serious about business.

Doesn’t have you enduring elbow-to-elbow fighting to get your money’s worth. We’ve all been there, trying to get a unique shot at a styled shoot while bumping up next to 20 other photographers. While this may be part of the journey, you might also be ready for a shoot you create just for your business. 

Has actionable takeaways. We are so lucky that we can learn the blueprint of what took someone 10 years to build in a matter of days. But ensuring there are tangible and actionable takeaways that you can implement NOW? It’s not always the case at workshops. 

Gives you ongoing access to everything you learned from the experience, because let’s get real… once you get home and kick back into real life, the majority of lessons have fled your mind and you’re left with a handful of notes and some vague memories.


So there you have it. It’s up to you, friend.

The entrepreneurs and creatives I most admire—the ones ACTUALLY making profit year after year and impacting the world—aren't islands unto themselves. They're hungry to learn. They're steadfast to invest. Yes, they believe in one-on-one. But they know consuming fluff-free education (no matter the format) is key to their success.

Don't get me wrong—I'm a big fan of one-on-one coaching (I offer it!), but what I've learned is that my best ideas that push the lever on profits are born from relationships.

There's no other educational program for film and hybrid photographers that melds artistry, financials, and marketing so you can raise your rates and uplevel your business like The Abundance Plan.

And oh yeah—one last bit. Make no mistake—if you can't set your passions up for sustainable profit (after expenses), it's only a matter of time before this whole thing will just feel like a jail sentence. If that hasn't started yet, it will soon.

Guaranteed.

And so much of what I see is that we're getting in our own way. You owe it to yourself and the impact you're called to have to craft the life and business that lead to long-term sustainability.

You've got nothing to lose. 

And the world dancing at your fingertips to gain.

The Abundance Plan comes with my 100% Plan Promise Guarantee, so you can rest assured as you give my method a whirl.

It's time to step outside of yourself.

It's time to think global.

Let's build your own plan for abundance—

What do you say?

By enrolling in this course, you are not only investing in yourself but doing good in the world too.
