We have to admit it. We have been there. Sitting in front of a course that we just bought (with all the hope it would change our lives) only to find it was a complete disappointment.

As former educators with over 1 0 years of combined teaching experience, we decided to use our knowledge of research-based teaching practices to provide a hands-on, action planned, learning environment. 

We first dedicated our lives to becoming highly experienced teachers, and as photographers? We dedicated our lives to becoming luxury wedding photographers. From Paris to the Amalfi coast.

And now? We get to use our skills as educators to teach  other creatives how to run the business of their dreams. 

we're shauna and jordon. teachers turned destination wedding photographers.


Because this isn't really about our story. It is about the future of yours. 

we received so many questions about marketing and building a profitable wedding business. And honestly? It all came so naturally to us. But what we didn't realize (until receiving email after email and DM after DM) is that what came naturally to us in regards to marketing was information that would be so valuable to others. And then?

Shauna and Jordon Education came to life.

And as former educators, it is our true passion and mission for us to share all of our knowledge and expertise with you so that you too can have a profitable business that brings you an abundance of joy. A business that you can run with confidence (without spending hours upon hours trying to find your success). 

And that? That is what SJ Education is all about. 

After creating a full-time wedding photography business after just 3 months...

change is possible.

With two masters in education, it's no surprise that teaching and learning is so deeply instilled in Shauna's heart. And to take that passion a step further, as a cheerleader for over 10 years, it's safe to say that encouraging and cheering others on is a pastime that hasn't quite left just yet. 

And after years of helping other creatives find success in their businesses, this former teacher (and enneagram 2) still finds some of her greatest joys in cheering on the success of other creatives.

Shauna is a cheese loving dreamer while also being a die-hard planner and goal setter — which as an educator, creates a perfect concoction of helping others to dream big while creating actionable plans to accomplish those dreams and goals.

As a former coach of all things — we're talking teaching PE for grades K-12 to coaching literally every boys and girls middle school sport to high school football, basketball, and track, to producing a Greece musical — this man has literally done it all.

And that amazing coach that he was for his students? Well, let's just say that it translates effortlessly when it comes to coaching photographers in their business.

As the ying to Shauna's yang, Jordon brings an incredible (and masculine) perspective to all things business and photography.

Shauna and Jordon's Cooney Classroom was by far the most Hands-On and helpful investment for my photography business thus far! I feel like I always had a why, but Shauna truly helped me understand how much of an impact I can make! They shared such valuable knowledge and dropped so many truth bombs for us. Because they helped me realize my why, my business will be forever changed! Thank you Shauna and Jordon!

My business will be forever changed!

It's so hard to find people in this industry that truly have a good heart and don't look at others as competition. But Shauna and Jordon live to better people's lives.T hank you for being an open book. Thank you for being raw and honest and caring people. I learned so much and I can't wait to sit down and really start making some changes in my business moving forward. All I have to say for anyone looking at Cooney Classroom education is do it.
