"Seriously, one of the best investments you can make."

"The Resource Vault is a game changer! I needed to streamline my business to help it grow and improve client experience. [My systems were] all over the place. I loved the step by step approach to everything from inquiry to album delivery [in the Vault].

Easily one of the best purchase I’ve made for my business yet. Almost too good to be true. The amount of stuff packed into the vault is crazy. Plus it gets updates every quarter based on your feedback. Guides, templates, resources, workflow, etc. all for one low price.

Seriously, one of the best investments you can make. I started using the resources in the vault and immediately saw results based on my clients feedback." 

–ALEXIUS S, BBV student

Systems + organization are my THING (like, even a system for doing the dishes kinda jam)—but I know it’s not everyone's fave.

I started off just like you - scrounging the internet and your Google Drive filled with freebies for every resource
you could need to run a successful photography biz. It took SO much time!

That's why 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 entire set 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.

These systems helped me grow my business from $8k to $50k+ and go from charging $1600 to over $5K per wedding!

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.

Because I believe that anyone with the right systems & support can make their dream business their reality!

I’m Manali—an extremely passionate (and slightly nerdy) founder of Behind the Business Vault

Oh hiiii!

 A resource like the Vault that Manali put together is truly priceless.

“As a mom, homeschooler and business owner I wear many hats! Keeping my life as organized as possible is key. A resource like the Vault that Manali put together is truly priceless. It has helped as a guide to implement my own systems in place without feeling lost or confused as to what to do next. I can't tell you how many times in the last few weeks I have referenced the vault. It has helped me feel more confident and efficient! Thank you so much Manali for offering this and being a wonderful cheerleader.”

LOVE NOTES FROM THE BBV COMMUNITY:

It really helped me realize that my dream of becoming a full-time photographer can totally be my reality

“Wow, I have had an absolute blast going through the Vault! I am still in my first year of photography, and feel like there is SO much to learn! It was incredible to have so many resources in one spot that I can return to again and again. It really helped me realize that my dream of becoming a full-time photographer can totally be my reality! Manali is totally there to help or offer guidance, which I love. She is 100% around, not just in it for the money! Would recommend the resource vault to anyone in the beginning phases of creating a photography business.” 

Claudia

REALIZED GOING FULl-TIME CAN BE REALITY

It has everything you’ll need & want to be a successful wedding photographer

“Manali’s Behind the Business Vault is beyond incredible! It has everything you’ll need and want to be a successful wedding photographer and she thought of everything! Oh my goodness! I can’t get enough of it! I use the Vault every day and it motivates me to work smarter and more effectively in my business. Go join it ASAP! It will save you so much time and it’s incredibly invaluable! It’s truly the solution I’ve been searching for in my business. 🙌🏻 Thank you Manali for creating such a well thought out resource.

“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. She even teaches exactly how she shoots at her sessions, plus her post-processing schedule and how she achieves a consistent look every single time. 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.”
