    1 – You’ll receive one on one guidance from accomplished photographer and marketer, Kristen Merie Wieder.


    An Allentown, Pennsylvania native, Kristen has worked in freelance marketing and photography for the past six years and is the owner of Wildflower Marketing, where she collaborates with the local community and small business owners. Kristen’s photography can be found in Real Simple Magazine, Refinery 29, and Vogue.


    Whether it is a candle flickering in a dusky bedroom or a wrap that helps a mother securely cradle her child, Kristen’s photography not only captures products, but also the moments in which we interact with them.

    Learn from Kristen's branding experience on how to capture incredible photography.

    2 – You’re going to get those likes!


    A beautiful photograph is just the first step. Kristen will provide tools and strategies to build your branding and social media around the images you capture. How do you move beyond inspiration and into brand refinement? What makes an effective Instagram story? How many hashtags is too many? How can you make it easy to purchase from an Instagram photo? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered in the course of the three hour workshop.

    3 – Experience the history and raw beauty of the 1744 Single Sisters’ House


    The Single Sisters’ House is a magnificent backdrop for this workshop. Awash in natural sunlight and textures that can only be found in a building erected in 1744, the Single Sisters’ House offers endless inspiration. As you look to your own future, find out more about the past of a building that served as living and working space for the women who lived there, continuously, from 1748 until 2007.  Proceeds from your registration help Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites continue to offer engaging programs such as the Single Sisters’ Series.

    This program is ideal for small business owners, artists and creatives, attendees of this three-hour class will work under the guidance of professional photographer, Kristen Merie Wieder, to learn the ins and outs of setting up a product photoshoot as well as how to advertise on social media to make the most of low-cost marketing.


    Participants are encouraged to bring their own cameras and the products they wish to photograph. Even a camera phone is fine to use. At the end of the class you will leave with product images captured at the unique Single Sisters’ House.
