Behind the Business Vault

Helping Growing Photographers BECOME CONFIDENT AS CEO OF THEIR BUSINESS
& WIN BACK THEIR TIME

Let ME GUESS...

Photography is something you’ve been crazy passionate about for years, right? Like, since those moody digital camera days of Facebook (and maybe even MySpace) 😂

Outside of impromptu photoshoots with your friends for your new profile pic, maybe you’ve fulfilled your fierce passion + curiosity with photography by taking allllll the photo classes in high school, or going on to study photography in college, or teaching yourself on the side, as you chase your actual degree!

However you gained your mad skills, the more you learned, practiced, and improved your skills, the more you became low-key OBSESSED with photography.
(Okie, maybe high-key obsessed LOL.)

Between shooting weddings and senior portraits, school work, volunteering, spending quality time with your friends and family, you’ve been, uhhh... BUSY, to say the least.


But all the hard work has been so worth it—because you’ve officially launched your photography business!
🎉🥂👊🏽

And it’s going WELL. People are actually booking, and excited for you to document some of the most important moments in their lives. AHHHH, what an incredible feeling!

HOWEVER—with launching your own business, also comes a liiiiittle bit of stress. Or maybe a lotta bit… 😅

You might feel confident in your skills behind the camera, but when it comes to managing the actual business side of your business?

Well, let’s just say your confidence is a work in progress.



IF YOU CAN RELATE TO ANY OF THESE
(OR ALL, NO JUDGMENT HERE FRIEND!)

You spend hours trying to write emails to potential clients that should take no more than 5 minutes
You aren’t even sure what info you need to include in inquiry responses in the first place
You have no clue what ideas and processes you should be tracking in your business, or how to efficiently track them
You spend so much time on the back end of your business that you have barely ANY time to dedicate to photoshoots, editing, or to live your life

I GET IT BECAUSE I WAS IN YOUR SHOES!

Friend, I promise you don’t need to reinvent the wheel or pull all-nighters to grow a successful photography business.


What you need are streamlined systems, templates, and support from someone who’s already done the work for you.

Wondering where the heck you can possibly find all of that in one place, without breaking the bank?!
(You are new to business, after all.)

Hint: You don’t have to look too far, because I gotchu!

The Vault is your one-stop shop for alllllll
(and I’m talking ALL) the resources you need to grow your photography business.

BEHIND THE BUSINESS
VAULT

WELCOME TO

With the help of the Vault, our community of photographers, and yours truly, you’ll feel just as confident in your business as you do behind the camera.

Oh hiiii! I’m Manali—an extremely passionate (and slightly nerdy) photographer, & founder of Behind the Business Vault for Photographers.

Not to brag or anything, but systems + organization are my JAM (like, even a system for doing the dishes kinda jam)—but I know it’s not everyone else’s!

Instead of scrounging the internet and your Google Drive filled with freebies for every resource you could need to run a successful photography biz...

I created BBV to be the ONLY place you need to find the resources you need to feel calm, confident, and capable as CEO and photographer.



As a member of BBV, you have access to my repertoire of intentional (and proven) systems and workflows that will simplify your business and never force you to compromise your time, so you can ACTUALLY establish work/life balance.

Whether you’re in the beginning stages of your business or lacking the systems and organization you know you need, the Vault will help you streamline your business with all the tools you need on ONE page.

That means you won’t have to waste time digging through a bunch of pages or course modules to find what you’re looking for! (Because nobody has time to waste time.)

HEAR FROM MORE VAULTERS

“If you are thinking about joining the Vault, DO IT! Manali is seriously the sweetest and has literally laid out her entire business (and access to herself) for you to dive into! If you are wanting to invest in your business and gain access to incredible resources, whether you're just starting out or wanting to take your business to the next level, this is the one for you!

There are exact emails to send to potential clients and paying clients. She provides guides and questionnaires for portrait sessions to even full-on wedding days. Manali also provides great advice and resources on how to grow your business with strategies that are easy to apply in your business right now.

The workflows and systems have been a game changer for me and my business, while also being a full time college student! Before, I had no workflows or systems and was tackling emails at the most random times of the day.

After implementing the workflows and weekly to-do's, I now feel like I have a little bit of my life back to enjoy being in the moment instead of worrying about typing and sending emails and keeping everything on track. Now, I have a game plan to lead my business to success and feel confident enough to do so.”

"The resource vault, contains an incredible amount of useful information that helped me jump-start my business in wedding photography and helped keep me on track and motivated. 

As someone who felt they were "good at photography," but had little knowledge of running my own business, it was a huge relief to see an actual business structure and learn how to implement those tools and resources into my day-to-day business routine."
