I know I will treasure the audio clips in this video, I adore my daughter's tiny little voice. And I'm really looking forward to my next video--I've got so many fun ideas rattling around in my head already!

"Anyone could teach the mechanics of videography but you ask us to aim higher and dig deep. So grateful. I've learned so much and have been stretched in beautiful ways. Of all the workshops I've taken (and I've taken many)...yours has charted the fasted growth. Video has stirred something in me. It's everything I love about photography overlaid with an entirely new skill set that allows me to express emotion more fully. You have a gift Emily - both for film and teaching. Thank you for wrapping those gifts up in 12 beautiful lessons and giving it away. I'm forever grateful. "

"Thank you so much, Emily! I never, ever expected such a positive review, even though you already told me on Facebook that you liked my film. I was really surprised that there were not many technical flaws. I also love the video, I´m so happy that I got into your class and know how to do more of these. As I wrote on fb, it felt almost effortless to learn this complete new skill. I love your teaching style, it is so appropriate for creatives, as you never intimidated us with technical details or your advancement in knowledge. Instead you led us through the process and told us exactly what we needed to know at every step. I never felt restricted or anxious about anything during the workshop and your encouragement to move forward and trust our intuition gave me the freedom and confidence to put this video together. I don’t know how the other video workshops out there are, but I do know that yours was exactly the one I needed! Thank you again!"
— Sonja Stich

— Terri Shivas
"Thank you so much! I think my goal in taking this class, was to learn how to have an emotional impact on people through videos. So it means a lot to me that you said that [I accomplished that]. You hosted such an amazing learning environment and I am so thankful to have been a part of this group. I have learned so much from you and I know I will look back over the material many more times. Thanks again!!!"
— Ashley Alexander
"I absolutely loved your class. I have always wanted to learn video but I was too intimidated to give it a try! Your class gave me the confidence I needed and pushed me out of my comfort zone. And I am so grateful. Thank you for everything!"
— Becky Willmon
"I have been a hold out on learning video for so long cause I love stills so much and telling stories with stills. Every time I tried video I hated the results. SOMETHING in your course just clicked something in my brain and I "got it," like totally want to video everything and loved all of it and loved the results."
— Patty Cannon
"Thank you thank you thank you! It was wonderful being a part of the class. I have so much footage already to dive into since I am finally finished with my final project! I asked a question in the discussion section about one of your comments. I look forward to the alumni group!"
— Kelley Davis
"I really appreciate the feedback and review especially so quickly! :-) I had the best time doing this workshop and I so appreciate you teaching it and helping us all. I can't wait to do more and get better! Looking forward to being a part of the alumni group! Thanks again!"

"Emily!! Thank you so so much for everything you have taught me about video, photography and life. I literally cannot tell you how much I learned in this class, and how much it has changed my view on everything. You are amazing. I love your outlook on life and the way you teach and the amount of time and love you put into this class. Thank you for your feedback and for all of your ideas for improvement. I cannot wait to make my next video! I've already started shooting footage :)"
— Clair Shorter
"Emily, Thank you so much for this class. I'm so excited to be able to start documenting our life in video as well as stills. My mother passed away in 2013 of cancer and while I cherish every picture I have of her it's the videos that I have that I cherish most. Nothing beats hearing her voice and laughter because those are the things that you tend to forget. Now I will be able to hold onto those things with my kids. It will be nice to hear their little voices and laughter once they are grown and no longer mispronounce things. Thank you again for everything and for taking the extra time to reach out to make sure that I had figured things out when I was having trouble. I can't wait to get more practice in and start working on another video."
— Kristen Baltzer
"Your lessons are a compass, and I am so excited for the journey! FINDING YOU AND YOUR COURSE AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME IN LIFE IS SUCH A BLESSING!"

— Sarah Engle
"Wow! I'm so incredibly grateful for this class and the knowledge you've shared. Thank you for providing feedback on my projects and calming my fears that I had done it all wrong.
Thanks again for making video not so scary and teaching me a new way to document my family. Big hugs, XX."
— Amy Donohue
"I can't even explain to you how much I loved this class! I couldn't wait until each lesson came out! Photography is a hobby of mine, I don't feel confident enough yet to market myself as a photographer. However, this class has actually helped me so much in photography! Especially when it comes to story telling and editing consistently since I had to link this whole project together. The thing is no matter how many books, blogs or classes I've taken in photography, I have never wanted to take my camera out as much as while taking this class! So, video is speaking to me more than photography really!! But I couldn't do video if I didn't understand some photography basics. I really love your sense of humor throughout the lesson and really appreciate your organization throughout! I'm always impressed by your extensive knowledge about this subject and feel lucky to have you as a teacher. All I wanted to do was make a video like the ones on your site but I didn't know how much else I would gain! Even the most recent lesson on how you break down the cost for us on how to charge.. I appreciate you handing that over because I realize that methodology didn't happen over night. The bottom line is I want to thank you for giving me this tool so that I can preserve these memories for my family and I! And hopefully find a way to make a living at!!! I will gladly refer you to anyone!! Keep up the good work Emily!!"
