The Arielle Peters Workshop



What is The AP Workshop?

In 2010 I was heading into my sophomore year of college and had no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I picked up a friend’s DSLR camera solely because of my love of taking photos. I had no idea it would grow into a business, but a few months in I realized something was happening that I didn’t even plan for… so I made a website, got a logo and handed out some business cards. I shot two weddings that year.

It took me all the way up until 2015 (FIVE years in!!) to really see that if I was going to take this anywhere that I needed to start to dive into education… and boy-oh-boy am I kicking myself that I didn’t start sooner. So many mistakes could have been avoided and questions answered!

Well when May 2015 came I was able to go full time with this thing I get to call a business! Ever since then I have had a dream and a passion to make sure other photographers know that they aren’t alone and that education is key early on!! There is a community and educational resources that can save you so much time and give you a purpose and drive you didn’t even know you could have!

Today I shoot about 20+ weddings a year in and am truly living my dream with this job and being able to stay at home with our son, Marcus!

I’ve had a lot of questions from people about how I’ve gotten to where I am with doubling my income from my 8-5 job, being able to work with my ideal clients all the time while being able to stay at home and raise our little guy. Well this year I am bringing one of my greatest dreams to life and am hosting the first annual AP Workshop for those that want to know! For you! It will be a full two-day educational experience where I open up my playbook and share all the secrets, systems and strategies that got me from a day job and a dream to a successful, thriving, in-demand wedding photography business!

I’ve been where you’re at, and I want to help you avoid the mistakes I’ve made and help you thrive in an industry that seems to be getting harder and harder to stand out in!




What’s it going to be like?


Day 1 : Photography

The first day will cover my shooting process from start to finish, from finding great light, composition tips and tricks, and posing naturally, to nailing perfect exposure and white balance in-camera, to my step-by-step post-processing system. Day one will also include a professionally designed portfolio-building styled shoot that will provide a chance to watch me interact with a real couple and hands-on opportunities for you to put into practice what you’ve learned, too.


Day 2 : Business

On day two, I’ll dive into everything that makes my business tick, from identifying and marketing to your ideal client, to running meetings, setting pricing, and getting more bookings, to building momentum through social media and blogging, and so much more. Day two will also include an updated head shot for each attendee. Because food, photography and building friendships go so well together, there will be a light breakfast, full lunch and dinner, snacks, and hot and cold beverages included on both days! You’ll leave the workshop with real, practical, applicable tools for growth in your business, motivation to propel you forward, and a community of photographers to support you.

 FAQ’s :


When do I need to arrive? The night before the workshop starts, we will have a little welcome party with some yummy treats so we can all get to know each other better! You won’t want to miss out on that!


Can I get connected with other attendees before the workshop? Before the workshop begins, you will be put into an online Facebook community group with all the other attendees to help get to know each other and coordinate anything that you would need to for rides, hotels, etc.


What do I need to bring? Make sure to bring a DSLR camera and your favorite lenses for the styled shoot! You’ll have the chance to photograph a bride and groom, and details, too! A laptop with a card reader and editing software is optional. If you want to have your computer open while I’m teaching Photo Mechanic and Lightroom so you can have a more hands-on editing experience, go for it! If you prefer just to watch me, that’s cool, too! Other than that, just bring your excitement and smiles and you’ll be good to go!


Are there payment plans available? Payment plans are available for anyone who signs up! A $300 non-refundable retainer just needs to be put down and then the rest of the balance just paid a month before the workshop.


Are seats refundable? Seats are non-refundable, but if you aren’t able to attend for some reason, you can sell your seat to someone else!


Is the workshop just for wedding photographers? The workshop will be hitting on mostly subjects pertaining to wedding photography, but a lot of the principles with the photography portion along with the business portion will be applicable to any type of portrait photography! So any family, newborn, wedding, or senior photographer is welcome and will still gain so much knowledge from it!


What should I wear? We will be taking behind the scenes shots during the workshop and doing headshots on Day 2, so wear whatever you’re comfortable being photographed in.


How many attendees will be there? I keep the workshop down to a limited amount of 12 attendees so that everyone can learn in a close-knit inviting group!
