About Master The City

Master The City is a nationwide tour that allows wedding photographers to meet in a predesignated city to shoot a luxury-styled wedding and add new jaw-dropping pictures to their portfolio. 

Our founder, an international wedding photographer, and SIGMA Ambassador Michelle Harris, started Master The City for wedding photographers who struggle to get booked and charge their worth because their portfolio isn't memorable or doesn't set them apart from their competition.

Master The City gives photographers at all levels, the opportunity to add stunning portraits of a real couple to their portfolios, secure larger wedding contracts and become an authority in their city using the new skills, knowledge, and techniques you will learn.

Are you a wedding photographer or on your journey to be one? Do you need fresh content for your website, social media, etc? Would you like additional couple posing help from an expert?
ps. If you're confident in your posing you won't be coached. Posing coaching is available if you'd like it.

Where will we meet?
