Even with blue blockers, your eyes hurt like hell. You set down another empty glass of wine and finally close Lightroom.
Start a photography business, you said. Get paid to be creative, you said. With a forehead wrinkle and frustrated sigh, you’re wondering, “wtf you were thinking?”
Starting a photography business seemed like a good idea, you swear. You’ve got the creative chops, passion for service, and drive to succeed.
Yet, the reality is far from the dream. Even though the bookings are coming in and you’re rocking the shoots, it feels like this business is sucking the life out of you.
Oh, and don’t even mention how much of a hot mess you feel like as a BUSINESS OWNER. Sales, money, pricing, marketing, and all the other hardcore business stuff is the last thing you want to touch on your to-do list
If we’re being REALLY honest, you’re starting to resent your business.
But you also DON’T want to feel that way.
Something has to change.
You know that there’s more to running this business than chasing the money, booking client to client, and feeling you’re at the beck and call of your business.
You started this business with a camera and a dream – a craving for freedom, fun, passion, and artistic expression.
You’re ready to
But to make sure you’re in the right place, tell us this.
Are you ready to be in charge of a thriving business that allows you to:
If you’re saying “yes, yes, YES”, then keep reading. Because this retreat was created FOR YOU.
Hi! We’re Ren and Melanie, your new biz besties.
We’re creative. We’re fun. We’re f*cking hilarious.
We know what’s like to fall out of love with your business – to be exhausted, resentful, and burnt-out. It’s a major turn off, right?
BUT…we also know how to bring the spark back like HOT tamales. With all the fun, deliciousness, and satisfaction of damn good tamale with a spicy marg.
We’re not just here to help you create a thriving business that makes bank and calls in dreamy clients with ease. We’re also here to help YOU thrive as a confident, empowered, and badass business owner.
Are you ready to uplevel from cute chick lugging around the camera to empowered CEO and valued artist?
We thought so. And we’re here to help.
(ps – you’re still super cute)
Ren and Melanie invite you to the
In just two days, you’re getting an entire business reboot. We’re covering everything from how to write copy that calls in dream clients to crafting a client experience that keeps ‘em for life.
Our combined knowledge covers the business strategy and marketing that makes your stomach squirm to the CEO level mindset you need to make it to the top. But we promise that we make sales strategy, money mindset, magnetic marketing, and copywriting fun and easy to approach.
Not to mention, we have hands-on experience creating a successful photography business that also gives BACK to you – instead of you just pouring into it. And we’re pros at transmuting frustration into power and manifesting desire.
We know that you’ve been to some not-so-dreamy workshops and events in the past. We hear you when you say that you’re over spaces that are too crowded to breathe and feeling like you get zero personalized time. Or investing in time consuming events and walking away without any actionable steps.
Thank you, NEXT.
Here at The Prosperous Photographer, we’re intentionally creating an intimate, high-level, and spacious environment to amplify your growth. You’re upleveling from better to BEST in the biz with a personalized action plan that you can implement in your business RIGHT AWAY.

We fell in love on the internet and have been inseparable ever since. We’re go-getters, passionate creatives, and fun-loving humans.
We know and commit to the personal development work that comes with growing a business. And we love to create spaces to generously share our knowledge and stories to empower YOU to do the same.
Ren is the badass photographer behind the six-figure photography legend Studio 29 Photography.
She’s an expert in crafting a money making client experience, expressing herself through her photography, and helping YOU be more visible in the world. On top of being a top pro in the wedding industry, Ren’s on fire with her steady corporate work and fun family shoots.
When she’s not killing it from behind her lens, you can find her helping businesses and rescuing plants on the House Fur blog, kicking ass on the ice as the only woman in her hockey league, or watching her dogs watch her with googly eyes during her morning rowing session.
As Seen In
Oh, and Melanie is ok, too. JK. Of course we’ll tell you all about her!
Melanie is a mindset coach and copywriter for the most brilliant and fun creatives on the internet.
She’s here to help you alchemize your pain into power (and CASH) through heart-centered selling, a top-notch money mindset, and copy that inspires your readers to take fast action.
In addition to helping you profit BIG from being more of you, she’s always down for sipping a matcha latte, pointing out and petting dogs on the street, and hopelessly trying to get her cats to take selfies with her.
We love our clients and they love us back

Therefore, we do not offer refunds on retreat tickets. By purchasing your ticket, you’re committing to showing up for yourself and your business because you’re f*cking worth it.

At The Prosperous Photographer, you get to hang with us live and in-person in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To protect the intimacy of our space, there will not be virtual access.
We pride ourselves in working with creatives who are committed and all in for their personal growth and business growth. Since we’re giving this retreat our all, we expect you to do the same. Therefore, we do not offer refunds. If the event is cancelled or rescheduled, of course we will refund your ticket purchase.
Yes! You can access the payment plan at the checkout page right here!
Included in your ticket, you’re getting happy hour with us on Tuesday night, lunch on both retreat days, dinner on the last day, AND all the amazing workshops and activities that we have in store for you. Plus snacks. We’re alllllll about the snacks.
You will have to cover flights, lodging, and transportation to the retreat space.
Nope! You will get the address for our retreat. Since our numbers are small, we’ll know exactly who you are. We’re so excited to welcome you on our happy night!
Yes and no. The Prosperous Photographer will cover a range of knowledge that would make a great impact for any service based entrepreneur. That being said, much of the language we will use will be specifically designed for wedding photographers. If you’re open to learning through a different lens (pun very much intended), we are open to welcoming any service based entrepreneur!
Be sure to bring your laptop and a journal for Day 1. For Day 2, you’ll definitely want your camera and gear and a piece of copy that you want to review for the copy clinic.
Dress for the retreat is casual. You will get more information on the restaurants and their dress code closer to the retreat.
No, it’s all or nothing, baby! We’ve specifically curated these workshops to give you a total business overhaul. Each lesson will blend with the other and you’ll build relationships with the other attendees.
We have 8 spots available. We expect this event to sell out FAST. So book your ticket now to be sure you’re in!
We get it! You definitely want to make sure this is the right fit for you – and we do too. You can schedule a 15-minute call with Melanie to chat and receive support in your decision making process right here.
You’re welcome to email Melanie at hello [at] themoderndaymystic [dot] co
Since we met, we’ve sent each other love texts that are more powerful than some of the things we say to our husbands (love you Caleb and Jeramia!). Our relationship is an exemplary example of true sisterhood – even beyond being powerhouse entrepreneurs.
But we didn’t want to keep it all to ourselves. We want to share our light, joy, and love for each other (and what we do) with more women. We want to share this love and all our knowledge with YOU.
Because the more that we witness, honor, and support each other, the more money, impact, and transformation we create in our lives and for the world.
