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.

student testimonials

 “For two years now, I've been attending workshops and classes - both online and offline - investing in mentoring sessions and even traveling to Europe for all of the above. I invested SO much in education and still didn’t have a clear vision and plan for my business. I've just finished the BONUS of the Abundance plan, not even the full plan, and I've already learned more than in the last two whole years. It's everything I was looking for!  Finally education that focuses on just that — education! I love the Abundance Plan. LOVE IT!!!”

The Lady Gaga Approach to figuring out your uniqueness ... because being all things to all people wasn't working out so well anyway.

How to create a brand bio + my template so you can pen down what you want to be known for. The better you can be at communicating what you do, the more you will find your ideal client and they will find you.

Eight Paths to Intentional Inspiration—big surprise, but it isn't Instagram or photography podcasts ... in fact what you feed your inspiration is what it will produce.

Is there a "perfectionist" voice in your head? You're not alone. I'll reveal five ways it's blocking your creativity, and simple, practical steps to create from within.

My Always Be Shooting Secret (Because finding personal projects won't just breathe new life into your craft, but strengthen your portfolio by smoothing out your weaknesses—I'll tell you how).

Here's what you'll learn in this module:

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.

My "Relationship Building Trick" because listen, I KNOW it's so easy to hide behind our devices, especially with what we do, but keeping these strategies in mind has impacted my business like crazy, so I'm sharing it with you.

My Website & Social Media Checklist, since more than 80% of wedding planning is now done online and nearly 40% of couples plan entirely from their phone. You MUST nail this stuff, and you will with my punch list.

Building a luxury business isn't easy—but it's also definitely not an impossible feat. If you've ever wanted to bust out of your pricing bracket and thought "my market won't stand for that," then listen up.

Here's what you'll learn in this module:

Module 3

Passion for Profits

The Five Foundation Keys—and the answer to "Do I need a trademark?" (short answer? It depends, and I'll help you figure out where you fall).

How to figure out insurance, because we are hefting around some SERIOUS cash in the form of smooth, glossy, glassy gear ... here's what you must do to protect yourself. 

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.

Why being the smartest person in the room is what I AVOID as much as possible—and ways to make sure you're iron-sharpens-iron in relationships.

How to Define Your Why, because when everyone else is rotating between the French press and Friends reruns and you're working Saturday after Saturday... you're going to need it.

Most of not getting sucked into the comparison game or feeling less-than is knowing where you are, where you are headed and why. That's why, in order to build your business, you need a few key elements in place to set your foundation.

My "Relationship Building Trick" because listen, I KNOW it's so easy to hide behind our devices, especially with what we do, but keeping these strategies in mind has impacted my business like crazy, so I'm sharing it with you.

My Website & Social Media Checklist, since more than 80% of wedding planning is now done online and nearly 40% of couples plan entirely from their phone. You MUST nail this stuff, and you will with my punch list.

Building a luxury business isn't easy—but it's also definitely not an impossible feat. If you've ever wanted to bust out of your pricing bracket and thought "my market won't stand for that," then listen up.

Here's what you'll learn in this module:

Module 3

Passion for Profits

The Five Foundation Keys—and the answer to "Do I need a trademark?" (short answer? It depends, and I'll help you figure out where you fall).

How to figure out insurance, because we are hefting around some SERIOUS cash in the form of smooth, glossy, glassy gear ... here's what you must do to protect yourself. 

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).

I'm KT Merry, and i can't wait to serve you.

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.
