Learning just got a Glowup.

If you’re anything like us, we were tired of signing up for courses from other educators and not actually learning anything. That’s why we created the Glowup challenges—a deep dive into one topic at a time, allowing you to walk away an expert, ready to make real changes in your life and business. We make photography education FUN, actionable, and interactive—no more fluff and no more hidden secrets—and bring along a community that feels like home.

This is education for real people, with real results, so you can find success faster than we did with the knowledge we’re going to teach you. With a combined 25+ years of experience running multiple successful photography businesses, our purpose is to change the photography industry, one Glowup at a time.


Tablescapes are a legend, an icon, and they are the moment!

This Glowup is one of our top sellers, and it's for a good reason! Nothing stops you mid-scroll on social media like a cute puppy, an amazing pair of shoes, and an epic tablescape setup!

We are all obsessed with the finer details of an over-the-top event! Seeing tables set to the nines makes us drool. The thing is, we want to photograph events of that caliber with excellence, which is why the Tablescapes Glowup was born!

Get ready to blow planners and brides away with your incredible tablescape images after everything you learn in this Glowup! Learn how to confidently and excellently photograph tables fit for a queen, with ease. We'll show you how to set a table, ensure it’s ready for its moment behind the lens, how to capture its best angles, get variety, and tell the story to impress your entire vendor team! Everyone from planners to florists and editors will be drooling over your work! Watch, you’re going to get great weddings, with great teams, and more weddings published in no time! 

Let's make that table shine!


"Literally never would have known any of this without the Tablescapes Glowup"

" I showed up to a styled shoot today and the table setup was completely wrong! Literally never would have known any of this without the Tablescapes Glowup! I made everyone stop shooting until we fixed it LOL. I've only watched Module 1 so far, but I'm already seeing such a big difference in my images!"

The Lesson Plan

The Lesson Plan

Module One
  • Why photographing tables is such a big deal!
  • What you’re looking for when photographing tables
  • The impact that tablescapes have on your leads, bookings, features, and publications.
  • How to properly set a table
Module Two
  • How to photograph a table excellently
  • What angles that planners, florists, and publications are looking for

  • Using real weddings for your marketing

We invite you to learn how to glowup your tablescapes and walk into the reception like a boss!

Early on, we learned that there is no faster way to give an event a glowup than to knock the reception details out of the park! This isn’t a “fake it till you make it” kind of situation. When you photograph a reception like a luxury photographer, you will get the attention of luxury clients and planners. This can apply to weddings of any budget and caliber. You have the power to give any event a true glowup by mastering tablescapes!



Glowups are mini classes that Develope Academy hosts once a month. We figured, instead of teaching with big, grand gestures and catch-all courses for everything, maybe some topics needed a little more nuance. Consider a Glowup to be your first, second, and third date with whatever topic we are covering. We find that these bite-sized education opportunities help our students to learn more efficiently, more quickly, and with more intention. You can expect each day of education to last 1-2 hours and to have fun while you learn!

Meet Charla + Jenn

Honestly. We were just tired of educators not actually teaching people. So...here we are, and we complement each other well. Our combined 25+ years and variety of expertise and experience gives us a unique approach that can affect change for most people in a very impactful way.

Education shouldn't be boring either. We believe that teleprompters and scripts make for a very distant learning experience. So our laid-back but pointed approach to teaching has been said to be "like hanging out with besties with a glass of wine." We are relatable while maintaining the fact that we are successful businesswomen in our industry.

Join us for Charla's world-renowned, film-shooting as she slams you with facts and rap rhymes while changing your life. Jennefer will be backing her up with her Kindred Preset prowess and inspiring ability to make everyone understand their individual importance.

"I was trusted to shoot the entire reception space solo and felt SO CONFIDENT."

"I was a second shooter yesterday, and thanks to ✨Tablescapes Glowup✨ I was trusted to shoot the entire reception space solo and felt SO CONFIDENT. Like, oh, we’re working with a tight ceremony and cocktail hour turnaround time? Worried guests will start filing in? Only have 5-10 minutes to shoot reception space + details? Easy 💁‍♀️"
