Are you tired of stiff, static, overly-posed images that say nothing about what matters most?

Hey, Fellow Wedding Photographer:

Are you ready to have some LIFE breathed back into your images as the way you think about Posing is changed FOREVER?

We’re drawing back the curtain on exactly how we do it.


You dread the Posing part of your weddings because you are always afraid of freezing up and you would rather just capture REAL life


You feel like you've fallen into a RUT of "these are my 27 poses" and every single blog post now looks the same


You are more interested in HONESTY and unrushed moments  than how many poses you can crank through in five minutes


You want to capture images that SAY something about who two people are together, but lately you've lost that


You're sick of going home and looking through your images and not feeling anything or WORSE, you can feel yourself standing there telling them to pose


You’re in just the right place.

The J&M Art of Authentic Posing Course is a LIFETIME access, 4 week course in natural, organic posing for photographers that teaches exactly how to capture the bride alone, groom alone, couple together, wedding party & more! We put a decade’s worth of experience into these four hours designed to give you all you need to advance your storytelling forever.

You’ll walk away from The ART OF AUTHENTIC POSING with:

Knowledge on how to step away from safe, pretty-but-boring posing, and create honest AUTHENTIC real moments that matter

A renewed passion for what you want your work to stand for and the ability to be a better storyteller for the generations to come

Practical steps on how to "PING" emotion & movement in your Posing

Assurance in your “why,” because you can confidently deliver on telling a story of who two people are together, and create connection not poses with your couple.

“JUSTIN & MARY! These videos. The Art of Authentic Posing literally just changed my whole life in a magical four hours! I feel like this is everything that I've been going for in one perfect online resource! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!" -Annmarie Swift


From AnnMarie Swift


"Justin & Mary. My life is changing, My art is changing. I see only two people in this image. Thank you." 

From Bessie Watson:


“Justin & Mary, I wanted to say thank you for providing these videos. I cried watching the first one. Your take on posing speaks to my heart so much as a photographer. It put words to my thoughts and feelings as to why I wanted to get into photography. You made me feel like you were speaking only to me. I will remember your words and use them as often as I can.”


From Alisha H:


"Justin & Mary! I just bought your Art of Authentic Posing course and let me tell you! I am not even finished with it yet and I can’t explain to you…it makes SO much of a difference it blows my mind! I slow down now mentally and physically. I actually THINK about my images. This is such a HUGE turning point for me I can’t thank you guys enough!!!"


From Heather Chipps

We'll talk about why we do this thing called "Posing" anyway, how it started, what it's become, and how we get BACK to telling stories that matter.
