Love Notes

From past Students


“Just over here analyzing the last two hours of my mentor session with my inspiration, Kristen Booth. She’s a talented fairytale storyteller...and she taught me ways I can connect with my target audience even deeper, advised me on blogging and pricing, and gave me input on my new website. If you’re a photographer seeking a mentor, check her out!!! 5-star experience!!!”


“Thank you so much for the one-on-one workshop! It was truly amazing to learn your techniques, you never shied away from any questions I asked! We covered it all, from the business side to the technical side! Even after shooting for several years it’s never too late to learn new techniques. Thank you again for the amazing opportunity!”


"The time I spent with Kristen was invaluable to my business. She has a genuine knack for teaching and helping others. I learned so much about running an organized and productive business as well as developing a brand that’s true to myself. The time I spent with Kristen was honestly vital to my business’s success.” 



"To this day she still inspires me, checks in on me, and compliments my much-improved work. Without a doubt, learning from her was life-changing and gave me the confidence to go into shooting full time"

"I have followed Kristen's work since 2012 and I have always been amazed at how beautiful and magical her work is. That week at The Gilded Workshop, learning from her was one of the best of my life, along with one of the best business decisions I have ever made. I learned a variety of shooting techniques, editing techniques, and just the simplicity of being able to create fairytales no matter where you are. She truly loves what she does and it inspired me so much to want to to be the best entrepreneur and photographer I could be. She is truly passionate about helping others, educating others, and caring about others. To this day she still inspires me, checks in on me, and compliments my much-improved work. Without a doubt, learning from her was life-changing and gave me the confidence to go into shooting full time. "
