We never thought we would find anything we enjoyed more than being behind the camera, capturing real life and true beauty. That all changed when we began mentoring and training other photographers. Now we find our greatest joy in helping photographers of all ages and skill levels grow in their craft and confidence.
WHAT IF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS COULD BE
We understand how important it is to have multiple systems in place, especially when it comes to tasks which take up your time. Over the years, we have learned from the best (and a lot through trial and error) to find the best way to work efficiently with purpose and intentionality, freeing our schedule for more time with our friends and family.

My mentoring session with Andie was everything I could have hoped for. I learned about light, posing, editing, camera settings, and how to interact with clients. She really went above and beyond and taught me so much more than I expected… I have way more confidence and know that I will be proud of the photos I take. I have a much better understanding of how light works, how to pose clients (even when you're drawing a blank and don't know what to do!), and how to cull and edit faster. Attending this session was priceless and I know will not only save me so much time in the future, but gave me the abilities to grow my business into what I dream it can be!

After college and jumping right into running a small photography business, Andie learned how to earn a 6 figure income, grow her team & create a loyal community of clients. Her hope is that these educational resources will help empower and equip all small business owners! This online shop is her way of sharing her knowledge!!
Our first year together as Costola, we booked 36 weddings!
We grew to be a 6 figure business in under 2 years!
We serve clients who we love and who love us!
With Andie and Tony’s guidance I feel more confident in composing my art, shooting, editing, posing, finding good lighting, choosing better locations, and composing a beautiful layout. I even found the confidence to shoot in all manual, choosing all of my camera’s setting.
I learned a tremendous amount not just about my own photography business but about portrait photography and running a successful business in general. Andie is thoughtful, insightful and honest. She is incredibly intuitive and helped me find my unique photographic vision and style in a supportive and positive environment. Andie continues to be my trusted mentor and friend!
