"The Lyon Shop was just what I needed!!!! Amelia and Justin were amazing. Their knowledge and passion were so inspiring! After shooting weddings for 9 years, this was a step in a direction of branching out, meeting other talented photographers and learning some tips from my favorite photogs in the industry. I walked away with a new sense of confidence and love for my job, truly an amazing gift! Thank you Amelia and Justin for giving me the courage to think outside of the box, which you both are so fabulous at!"

"the lyon shop … you mean the "greatest" shop! this workshop contained so many aspects of the photography business, from shooting to post processing, to business and branding. i still cannot believe how much i took from this one day! i learned things that have change the look and branding of my company, i have better organize my schedule to be able to balance my business with family, and have changed my workflow so i am working twice as fast. most of all it was so excited to see the lyons in action, to see they are just amazing as their photographs. truly an inspiration! i have been so excited about my business since attending "the shop". thank you justin and amelia!"

"Hi Amelia! (Justin too)
=) is it weird I want to take another workshop from you guys?!? It probably is :) but I dont care.
It was seriously that good!!!!!
Thank you for being so so genuine, and truly inspiring everyone around you.
You and Justin are some of the kindest people I have had the chance in meeting.
The Lyon Shop was more than I could have imagined.
With so many workshops popping up its hard to decide where to invest :)
Your workshop however did not have me hesitate for a second before
signing up, and I can say iit was 110% worth it!!!!
Thank you for being so encouraging, and inspiring others with your beautiful art.

"The Lyon-Shop was the best. I left that day feeling so inspired and fired up to better myself as a photographer and with new ways to grow my business. Not a week goes by that I don’t look at my Lyon-Shop notes that I took to see what I learned and how I can incorporate it into my shooting and business. Amelia and Justin were so much fun, it was so great to be able to learn from their knowledge and experiences. I would absolutely recommend the Lyon-Shop to anyone that wants to again be inspired and to fall in love again with our jobs because that is what it did for me."

"Amelia + Justin,
thank you, thank you, thank you!! The Lyon-Shop absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way! It was just what we needed - a fresh perspective for our business and our art. We adore you two and can’t thank you enough for being so honest and real. We’d do it again in a heartbeat!!!! ~ Beto & Lindsey Joy"
-Lindsey Joy Photography-
"Seriously, Amelia and Justin, you have no idea how the Lyon-Shop transformed my photography and my business. The Lyon-Shop took place at the perfect place in my new photography career, but I really believe anyone, at any point, could benefit from everything you have to offer. Simply put, the Lyon-Shop was BOMB. I learned how to take what I knew, and combine it with what I learned, in order to take my photography to the place I had been envisioning from the beginning (but had no clue how to execute). Apart from all the knowledge gained (how to get lens flare!!) and new friends made (SO many and all SO awesome), it was very cool to just hang out with you guys at Balboa, with nitrate-free turkey dogs and s’mores, and see how genuine, kind, generous and open you are. Thank you. Words cannot express. Everyone should attend the Lyon-Shop; for REAL!"
-Anda Marie Photography-
"Long story short…I’m an idiot and was retarded for doubting you and Justin and your amazingness. I have not stopped gloating to my wife about how great you guys are. It was a real eye opener to me about the things I need to do to take my business to the next level. I’m going to invest heavily in BRANDING, BRANDING, BRANDING. Thanks for opening your bank of knowledge! Honestly, most photographers would likely hoard your valuable knowledge, but you guys freely distributed it…simply AWESOME!!! "

"Amelia + Justin,
I’m sitting here trying to find the right words to write. Ever since the Lyon-Shop, I’ve had a new outlook on the photography biz, marriage, and love. Thank you so much for opening your lives to us and sharing your secrets. I’ve come back with a wealth of information and a new found motivation to be a better photographer and person. My husband is so bummed he couldn’t attend because I’ve been raving about how amazing the workshop was ever since I arrived home:). You guys have been blessed with incredible hearts and talent, and I am forever grateful to have had the chance to meet you and learn from you both. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
-Maria Vicencio Photography-
"First of all, i feel so blessed to know you and Justin. Your real and honest aproach to the way you run your biz put all of us at ease and made *me* feel a little more sane :) Hearing your approach, specifically, on how to handle Motherhood first and work second was encouraging as i’m ALL ABOUT that. I felt stoked.
Many times throughout the day, i kept thinking to myself "i can’t believe i am here right now, learning all of this from them?!!" So, tahnk you a bajillion times over(i beat you on the million :) for the last two days..it really menat a lot.
Lots of love,
-Jackie Wonders Photographer-
"I can’t stop telling people how amazing this day was for me! I seriously learned more about photography and managing my business in this one day than I have in the 2 years I have been building my business! It made me so excited to go home and work even harder with photography! It helped me see the "light at the end of the tunnel!" As photographers, we all come to points where it seems like our business isn’t going to go anywhere. I don’t know about you but I have hit that "dead end" feeling multiple times. After attending your workshop, I was refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to take on the world of photography! Thank you Lyon’s for being so willing to share your knowledge and experience with those of us who might need some extra help! Very much appreciated! "
-Lizzy Jean Photography-
"Amelia and Justin- you guys are AMAZING!!! I am so glad I came and was able to learn all your sweet tips and tricks. I tell everyone about you guys and how that single day saved me years of oops-es, uh oh’s, and why didn’t I think of that before! :) Seriously you guys are awesome and I really appreciate the chance I had to be a part of such an amazing experience."
"Amelia + Justin- Thank you so much for everything. I truly feel so blessed to have been involved with your workshop today. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the two of you. Your resolute commitment to both the professional and personal realms of your life is nothing short of inspirational. THANK YOU for sharing so freely. You are both so generous with your time, your knowledge and really just yourselves in general. You are a blessing to this industry in a profound way.
As far as your workshop is concerned in particular: I truly appreciated your organic approach. No frills, or unnecessary eloquence just for the sake of hearing yourselves speak :). I feel like many workshops tend to lean towards blatant self importance. It was refreshing to receive useful, straightforward information. No ego. I think you did a remarkable job of being professional, organized in your thoughts, approachable, lighthearted and above all genuine. Truly a rare combination in that kind of setting! I was impressed by the quality of the presentation. I was impressed by the physical materials provided and how congruent they were with your brand. I was impressed by the synergy of your presentation. The two of you compliment each other beautifully. I said it on twitter and please know that it really comes from a genuine place: top.notch.
Thank you a million times and another for good measure…"
"The Lyonshop was AWESOME!!! I came home with so much knowledge and information that it took me a day to really process what that I’ve learned! Being someone who is just getting their feet wet in the industry it was great to learn from a dynamic duo who are passionate about what they do and are willing to share that with the world. I’ve always admired people who do what they love for a living.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend the Lyonshop!!! I look forward to learning more from you in the future!"
"Justin + Amelia!,
Thank you sooo much for hosting LYON-SHOP six, You both are amazing! Wendy and I had a great time in California. We are so blessed to connect with you and so many other new friends. We are truly inspired and have entered into a new level of photography. We appreciate all your help!!!

"Hi Amelia + Justin!
I just wanted to thank you guys for giving a great workshop. It was interesting, infomative, and inspirational. Thank you SO much! All the best to you!"
"Justin + Amelia- Thanks for such an inspirational workshop. Watching you guys in action and hearing your story was better than I could have imagined!"

"Hi Amelia and Justin!
I just wanted to email you guys to thank you once again for an awesome experience, this time with the shoot shop. The amount of experience, information and knowledge you guys shared with the group was astounding. I hear many fellow photographers talk about their negative experiences with other photogs workshops and how they felt like they were in it for the money. On the contrary, the level of openness, the willingness to help and a sense of giving back was so apparent with you two, I truly truly thank you for that. As successful as you two are, your humility was inspiring and sets an example for up and coming photographers like me. I can’t fully explain in words how awesome my experience was and how much I appreciated it, I just wanted to do the best I could to say thanks. Cheers!"
"Dear Amelia & Justin,
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I don’t know what to say except your workshop has changed everything for me. I am so appreciative of your willingness to share
all that you’ve learned along the way. I’m still processing everything, but I feel completely different about myself as a photographer in this industry since attending your workshop. I feel confident, inspired, and strong. You both possess this charisma and energy that is incredibly motivating. I’ve always admired your work, but now that I’ve met you, I admire you as individuals, as partners, and as parents who are able to do what they love and still be able to put your family first. Thanks again for sharing and offering such a great learning experience!"
