your extra bonuses
I was planning my first wedding styled shoot and didn’t really know where to start. The Styled Shoot Workbook was the help I needed. The workbook walks you through step-by-step which makes it so easy to create a styled shoot. The workbook includes a timeline so you know about how long it takes to do a wedding shoot. A checklist which made sure I didn’t forget anything and areas to brainstorm your styled shoots vision. The section on how to create a mood board was very helpful.
If you’re just starting out in the wedding business and need to get some styled shoots under your belt, I highly recommend Engaged Wedding Planner Academy’s The Styled Shoot Workbook.
- Tiffany, Fizzy Party
I had recently reached a roadblock…how am I going to brand my company? Thankfully, I happened upon Valerie’s DIY Branding Workbook and it helped me immensely to get over this hurdle. Valerie thoroughly outlines the entire branding process step-by-step in a fun, easy-to-understand workbook. She covers everything from identifying your ideal client, creating your name and logo, establishing your company’s message, to finally, putting it all together. It includes lots of videos and workbook pages with journal prompts to get the creative juices flowing. It was everything I hoped for and more. Now I’m well on my way to building a brand that is visually appealing, cohesive and truly represents company’s values. My brand is hand-tailored to attract my ideal client and I think that is just what it will do. Thank you Valerie!
- Sara, New Wedding Planner
I love Valerie and all her hard work that she puts into services like this one! As a new wedding planner in Texas, I was completely lost at not only how to price weddings for my area but also what additional services I can provide that sets me apart from all the other planners. This workbook details everything from the basic necessities you need to consider (like taxes, um hello) to even the little things like pain points your clients may be feeling and how to overcome them. You can’t base your prices off of your clients’ budget, but you CAN price them off of what you’re worth and leave a little extra room for necessities your business requires. I HIGHLY recommend this detailed workbook for those who need some extra guidance to pricing their services.

Working for Valerie has been such a great learning experience.... Valerie gave me the tools to be organized and prepared when working with brides and vendors. Every time a new problem or question arose, Valerie was there to walk me through how to best deal with the situation. I feel that she has prepared me to enter the wedding planning world on my own.
- Michelle, A Perfect Plan Wedding Consulting
I was surprised to learn just how much time is involved and what it really takes to be a wedding coordinator. It is nothing like your wedding. Valerie is a great mentor, and I love how she pours her knowledge into her consultants.

WEDDING PLANNING IS MY OBSESSION
After designing my own wedding and loving every single part of the planning process, wedding planning was all I could think about doing.
Finally, in 2012, I couldn’t take the dreaming anymore and I searched out local planning companies who were looking for interns. I ended up getting hired on the spot. So, after my 9–5 day job, I would work as a gopher four days a week until 8 pm. I remember doing a lot (and I mean a lot) of cold calling from bridal show lists.
I remember starting to feel used and, other than my cold calling skills, my wedding planner skills were still lacking. So I decided to go out on my own. But my internship didn’t really prepare me for owning an actual wedding planning business. I probably spent a good two years slowly figuring it out on my own (because let’s be real, who can afford a $1,200 course?).
I did end up with a thriving company- it just took two years too many. It was a slow and painful progress with lots of self-doubt and anxiety in the beginning. In year 4, I decided to add consultants to my team. They could plan a wedding no problem, but eventually, they wanted to start their own business. They soon learned that starting and operating a business was a lot harder than I made it seem. I ended up walking them through the progress step by step. This is what sparked the Launch Your Wedding Planner Biz Masterclass ecourse you see today.
They now have a thriving business to be proud of and SO CAN YOU!
You want to know how to get clients!
