300 HOUR ADVANCED STUDIES YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
welcome & training overview
Our 300 hour module-based training is the perfect opportunity for teachers and dedicated practitioners to expand upon their yoga journey. Dive deeper into alignment, the art of sequencing and assisting, the wisdom of Ayurveda, yogic texts, integrated anatomy, and leadership. Find your voice, connect with your higher purpose, and become an empowered, informed, and confident yoga teacher.
In our modular-based system, there are foundation modules offered annually that are required for certification. You are able to choose your path of study for all additional hours based on what inspires you most. This allows teachers to customize their studies and learn at their own pace and availability. The program can be completed in one year and must be completed in two years maximum. Modules are open to anyone, you do not need to be a yoga teacher or enrolled in the program. If you are a new teacher wanting to learn more about a specific subject or you are a home practitioner looking to progress your practice, we encourage you to join us!
Upon completion, graduates who have previously completed and registered for a 200HR Yoga Alliance approved teacher training program (from any registered school) will be eligible to register as RYT 500.

300 hour ytt frequently asked questions
What does “Forty Watt” mean?
40 Watt Photo refers to 40 Watt lightbulbs. Have you ever seen one? They come in different shapes and sizes, but are often recognizable by their unique, old-school filaments. These bulbs emit a warm, moody, emotive, unique light; adjectives that also describe my style of photography.
How many photos will we get from our wedding?
This depends mostly on the amount of time that I spend at your wedding. For full days, you can expect to receive around 700-800 photos.
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I’ve been working in the wedding industry since my freshman year of college, when I started an internship with some very successful photographers in Atlanta, GA. They taught me everything they knew about shooting, lighting, editing, and client interaction. From there, I continued second shooting for other photographers as I slowly began to take on my own projects. I took an entrepreneurship class in college where I wrote a business plan and started to book my own weddings. I moved to Bozeman a month after graduating, and put my plan into action to revamp 40 Watt Photo in the wild west. Aside from photography, I’ve also worked on the side for caterers, florists, coordinators, and bartenders. I’ve seen every kind of wedding under the sun. Your wedding day starts long before you walk down the aisle, and I know how to help you make it run smoothly.
Do you only shoot weddings?
Nope! Weddings are fun and they are the majority of what I shoot, but I love any job that allows me to work with people. I’m available for engagements, senior photos, headshots, families, editorial work, pets, babies, and anything in between. Just ask!
Did you go to school for photography?
Nope. I have a BA in Spanish language with a double minor in sociology and business. Between all of that I squeezed in a fair number of art and photography electives. I learned everything else I know from incredibly kind and generous fellow photographers, books, experimentation, workshops, a little luck, and a lot of practice. ¡Sí se puede!
How much does it cost for you to shoot our wedding?
The short version is: it depends. Different celebrations require different things. I charge a baseline amount for either a half or full-day, and you can build a customized package from there. Regardless, all wedding packages include high-resolution images delivered in an online gallery. From there, you can also add engagement shoots, bridal shoots, custom albums, and much more!
Where can I see examples of your work?
You can see my latest work by following me on Facebook or Instagram, and on this website. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you some galleries from recent weddings to check out!
Have you shot at my wedding venue before?
Maybe! Regardless, I am happy to do a site tour with you before your wedding so that you can point out any specific locations you want to use for photos and feel 100% confident on the day of your wedding.
How long until we see our pictures?
For weddings, it takes me between 4-6 weeks to deliver all of your pictures depending on the time of year. For family, newborn, engagements, and other more low-key shoots, I’ll have them back to you in 2 weeks. You can also always follow me on social media for sneak peeks!
Where are you located? Do you travel?
I live and work in downtown Bozeman, Montana, and I love to travel!
What kind of gear do you use?
I shoot Canon pro gear and edit with Adobe programs on Apple computers. I have tons of memory cards and batteries, as well as backup equipment in case something goes wrong. Also, I have an on-camera flash unit and two Alien Bee lights to make sure everything looks crystal clear at your reception! For a detailed list of everything I’ll be bringing to your wedding, feel free to ask!
How do we book you?
Once we’ve agreed on a package that fits your needs, I'll send you a contract and invoice from my online software. A signed contract and deposit of 1/2 of the total cost puts us in business!
How do we pay you?
I’m not picky. I can accept payment via cash, check, money order, Squre, PayPal, Venmo, carrier pigeon, or suitcases full of singles. Whatever suits your preference!
Can we meet you?
Yes, please! I love to meet couples before they decide to hire me so that we can get to know each other. Your photographer is one of the people you will spend the most time with on your wedding day, so its important to feel comfortable with them. I’m happy to meet up with you for a coffee or beer, but if distance is an issue we can always Skype or talk on the phone. Whatever works for you!
Have you always lived in Montana?
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia (pro tip: no one there calls it Hotlanta), but I lived in a small town in New Hampshire during my middle school years. I moved to Bozeman, Montana in 2014 and I've never looked back.
Do you bring other photographers to shoots?
I feel super comfortable shooting weddings by myself, but you can add a second shooter to any wedding package. I have a trusted list of experienced photographers that I can bring depending on their availability.
