JOIN US FOR ... the insta edit
Join fashion & lifestyle photographer Brittanny Taylor and brand experience & event designer Patsy Culp of And Celebrate for a one-day hands-on workshop designed to help you leverage Instagram to grow your brand, business and following.

You’ll leave the workshop with an Instagram brand direction, defined content categories, knowledge to attract the right followers, loads of photos ready for posting, and the confidence to shoot Insta-worthy photos anytime, anywhere.

WHy THe HECK IS THIS important?
First impressions are lasting impressions. And, more and more people are looking to social media to find the right person to hire for their next project - or service needs. Having beautiful photos are essential to forming connections with new customers. A few swipes of the thumb could determine whether a new customer chooses to work with you over the next person. You don’t have to be a photographer to take good photos. All it takes is a little extra attention and intention! We can't wait to show you how!
Why Flat Lays?
Flat lays are the easiest way for you to create content for your social media channels in the comfort of your own space - be it your office, studio, or home. You can take the everyday items you use and display them in fun and creative ways to show off your personality and brand.
ABOUT YOUR HOSTesses
Brittanny got her start in documentary filmmaking and along the way she fell into the world of fashion and lifestyle photography. Her work with bloggers made her interested in the branding side of business, and so she began to build social media brand consulting into her offerings – with a focus on helping female run small businesses. The work isn’t done once the photos are taken and that is where her interests lie: she is passionate about helping her clients build the entire package from idea to final product.
Patsy has close to a decade of corporate marketing experience, a secondary degree in graphic design, a certificate in transformational life coaching, and an innate passion for styling and all things celebratory. She brings a breadth of knowledge and unique perspective to each creative endeavor she pursues. Guiding brand direction and styling for entrepreneurs beautifully marries her talents, skills, and experience with her highest values of community, collaboration, and creativity.
Together, they bring the marketing wherewithal and knowledge of developing a thoughtful brand identity to help you create a swoon-worthy Instagram feed you are proud to call yours, plus tips on how to grow your following and ensure your product/service is reaching the people you most want to serve.
