I help wedding and portrait photographers just like you transform your brand into a passion-led, successful and profitable business.
From the Serengeti Plains and the Indian palaces of Rajasthan, throughout Europe and the UK, I have travelled the world shooting some of the most beautiful and luxurious stories of love, connection and celebration.
I’m a mindset and business coach, an entrepreneur, a multi-award-winning wedding and portrait photographer, a mum, a wife and a former BAFTA award winning TV documentary producer (Credits: Discovery Channel, Nat Geo and BBC.)
Over the last 15 years, I’ve built my photography business, Pippa Mackenzie Photography, into a successful multi-six-figure business. I travel the world photographing some of the most amazing luxury wedding and private party stories and have gained the reputation as one of the leading luxury photography brands in the industry.
I’m also a qualified NLP and LIFE Coach, and a Photography Mindset and Business Coach with a passion for helping other photography businesses.
If I can do it, you can too!
I believe that every woman can be whoever and whatever they want to be and so by daring to be ourselves and following our dreams with direction, strategy, the right mindset, tools and support, we can do amazing things. As your photography mindset and business coach, I help you do just that.
As a photography mindset and business coach, I’ve developed a programme designed to help wedding and portrait photographers IGNITE their business!
A 1 Day Mindset and Business Retreat at my home and studio in West Sussex.
Includes a 2-night stay in our beautiful cosy cottage.
With My 6 Pillars of a Thriving Photography Business
“I honestly can't put into words how she has changed my life, and this is the truth. My whole attitude and outlook to my business has changed.
All of her coaching subjects are relevant, her worksheets are designed so professionally and are thorough, not just printed off and handed out for the sake of it. Pippa also knows when to push me and when to challenge me - at the exact right time.
Pippa’s retreat is also done at her home, where you stay in her most beautiful, attached holiday cottage which was just amazing. The walk with Pippa on the last day ended the whole retreat perfectly. As well as finding 'me' , my values, what makes me tick, who my ideal client is, branding, we also worked on mindset, pricing, social media and so much more.
I have also since invested in further coaching with Pippa, as well as a new website, branding and headshots with Pippa (it was also an excuse to see her again!).
She is absolutely nothing like any of the other 'coaches' I've seen or researched. She isn't just 'words'. I now have a photography business I am proud of, and I know where I'm heading thanks to Pippa. In the words of Pippa, 'I'm right here for you my lovely', and she absolutely is! ”
“The experience has allowed me the space to think about what I want to be doing, the focus I needed, and most importantly the why. The setting was ideal for this and Pippa’s personality suited mine; she was warm and honest, and I felt able to open up about my true feelings surrounding both my business and personal life which was integral to figuring things out.
I am so pleased that I chose Pippa. it wasn’t a difficult decision, I already followed her on social media and have taken advice from her over the years but on a piecemeal basis. Two days with her gave me the time and space to concentrate on me and immerse myself. The coaching has left me feeling empowered and able to make my next move in a structured way.
I highly recommend Pippa Mackenzie Coaching and so look forward to the ongoing mentoring sessions.”
“I’ve often thought that I needed to invest in me and my photography business, but have until now put that moment off. Following a year of immense personal sadness, I made a huge decision to change how I work and what I do, but knew I needed help to make this a reality rather than just a dream.
Having followed Pippa’s photography work on social media, I picked up on her mindset and business coaching and was immediately drawn to wanting to learn more. What a journey it is turning into. I recently spent two days with Pippa on a business retreat as we explored my world, what makes me the person I am and how I can shift my mindset. The single biggest moment for me was the clarity that has emerged and difference this will make everything I do from now on.
I’m hugely looking forward to the next few months’ mentoring as the tailored strategy we have put in place begins to evolve and grow. Knowing Pippa is there every step of the way is so reassuring.”
“Pippa is such a warm, sweet soul! She is compassionate, generous, and smart. She instantly got what I was about and what I needed - and her lovely personality, coupled with her being an experienced businesswoman, an amazing wedding photographer and coach made her the perfect travel guide and companion as I embarked on this truly life changing journey.
The IGNITE programme is so well thought out. It covers everything a wedding photographer needs to know - and at the same time it's tailored to suit the individual photographer.
With Pippa's help I've managed to declutter my mind, stop overthinking, change my mindset, and start setting real goals for myself. I've started discerning my own voice from the noise around me - and trusting it. And where I used to feel unease, discomfort, and off track, I now feel anticipation, a sense of direction, confidence - and joy!
You are truly, truly amazing, and I can't recommend you highly enough to any wedding photographer who needs to transform and boost their mindset and their business! ”
“When Pippa first met me, I was lost, stuck in a rut, financially struggling and very negative about myself. I arrived at Pippa’s and was instantly welcomed and showed to my lodgings (which are superb by the way). The first morning of our intense two day workshop, I was able to open up and talk freely with tears at times about how I was feeling. I did this because purely because Pippa listens, she’s warm, but most of all she is supportive, and I trusted her. We turned around my negativity and started work on other aspects of my mindset towards my business.
After leaving Pippa’s very safe retreat I felt able to continue to change my mind’s attitude. I have more direction, purpose and a zest to achieve my goals that I set. Prior to meeting Pippa, I had no goals, or I’d set meaningless ones. Now these are firmly set in place and I am working my way through the tailored strategies that Pippa developed for me and my business.
Pippa is an amazing woman and I cannot recommend her Ignite programme highly enough. So, if you still thinking about it, let me tell you, it is worth the investment and you will not be disappointed. ”
“I first started working with Pippa in the height of lockdown. I was feeling low, unconfident in myself and unsure about where my business was heading. I spent a lovely day with her and Ian at their home and we covered everything from mindset to business goals. I came away from the day feeling a lot more positive about myself and my business and I felt that I had a clear understanding of what I needed to do to help my business grow. I had a very busy year when we came out of lockdown and I struggled to cope with the mounting pressure of holding down two jobs but Pippa was there as a shoulder to cry on and she encouraged me to keep going and we devised a plan to help get me through it. Since working with Pippa, I have left my other job and I am now a full-time wedding photographer. This was my main goal and I have achieved it! Pippa is such a lovely and warm human being. I can't thank her enough for all of her help and support.”
“I am new in photography and I had the opportunity to work closely with Pippa on the launch of my photography journey.
As an experienced photographer and a successful business owner, she shared her business and photography extended expertise with me. Pippa has always been very supportive throughout every step of the way, motivating me and sharing insightful advices and constructive feedback.
Pippa always celebrated my achievements as her own, and her motivation and positivity are contagious. Personally I can say it was a pleasure getting to know someone full of passion, hands-on and warm-hearted as Pippa. She has always believed in me and I trust Pippa 100%. I know I can always count on her.”
“I have always struggled with confidence and I had not considered the isolation I would feel setting up my own business with zero business experience or knowledge. These feelings held me back from making contacts, establishing my own business style and having confidence in my own product.
Pippa is simply a lovely person who also happens to have a wealth of knowledge about setting up, establishing and progressing a business. It's more than just business knowledge and experience though; Pippa focuses on your personal development too. There were times that I was very aware that Pippa had more confidence in me than I did in myself.
With Pippa's support I have taken a new path with my business, I have stepped into a more profitable market that I previously thought I was not good enough for. I have gone from part time to full time which really was my dream. I have no doubt I will continue to work with.”
“Pippa was absolutely amazing with my personal branding shoot. I was quite nervous about the whole thing as I don’t like taking pictures of myself and the idea of the focus being entirely on me made me uncomfortable. But she had a way of making me relax, and encouraging me to pursue styles of photos that I was comfortable with, and actually made me realise I had a flair for taking pics (who knew?!).
She was great at being able to “get into my head” and understand what the vision was for the shoot, and its ultimate use for my business. My social media community have responded so positively to the images, and it’s resulted in higher engagement and followership which I’m so pleased about. Also the turnaround time was super short - way shorter than I had expected.
Thank you so much Pippa! As always you exceed my expectations! Looking forward to the world opening up so I can fly to the UK and have another shoot with you!”
