I’m Nata, your favorite wedding photographer business coach.
I help wedding photographers get more clients,
charge more, and have fun doing it.
Born in Brazil, I came to the US in 2003 with $30 to my name and not enough English to even order food at a restaurant. I was a student-athlete sent here on scholarship. I knew I wanted to do something to help people, but I always saw myself as physical therapist.
And I was!
I spent 10 incredible years as a physical therapist and speaker. But after marrying my husband and having our 2 beautiful girls, things started to shift for me. I was technically a successful physical therapist - booked out and busy. So, so busy! I was tired of having to say no to showing up to school functions. I hated being stuck inside all day where the only cap I was wearing was a cap on my time and income.
I was ready to take on something more creative. I knew I wanted to have more freedom to be flexible around my girls’ schedules and show them the world. I couldn’t do that while attending to my patients, running the physical therapy office, and building out their new scheduling system.
Cue the camera and photographer business coaching
Fast forward to now and I’ve hung up my scrubs for a life of traveling the world as a destination wedding photographer and photography educator. I’ve built multiple six-figure businesses from my small home office in Jacksonville, FL. And I’m most proud of the fact I’ve done all this - literally pivoted my career and lifestyle - while staying true to my original dream of helping people while doing something I’m passionate about.
The thing is…I’m not some super-genius or particularly lucky. I worked my ass off to be the badass my girls can look up to.
And if I can make it as a wedding photographer, so can you!
A bit more about me
"The Mastermind class was a great investment for myself and my business. Nata walked through everything, step by step to ensure my business was set up properly and for success. Finding out the cost of doing business helped me so much to understand where my money was going! I couldn’t recommend this course enough. It’s turned my business and the way it runs completely around! "

HELP ME, NATA!
I need this!
I took the Business Mastermind program with Nata and I am here to say if you’re considering her educational courses, DO IT! Working with Nata, I was able to have someone hold me accountable to the business goals I have set for myself (that I had been procrastinating on my own), making my business more of a reality than ever."
