The Wedding Industry Awards finalist, Cassandra Lane Photography and I have teamed up again for our second wedding photography workshop: Shoot Joy 2.0Shoot Joy is an information packed and fun-filled one day wedding photography workshop for photographers who want to get inspired to shoot bolder, braver wedding imagery by injecting more joy into their work.

The day will be filled with honest hands-on insight into how we approach shooting weddings and our best advice for looking after our clients. You won’t spend a day stuck in the classroom; we’ll be up and about using the gorgeous setting of Oddfellows on the Park to our full advantage, shooting joy and sharing information as we go.

Van from Sensor Clean Manchester is back by popular demand and will be on hand to offer advice about sensor cleaning and lens calibration. One lucky attendee will win a Sensor Clean Manchester voucher too!

Here’s more about the workshop content:

Bridal prep: hands on shooting, tips and tricks on this challenging but exciting part of the day. How to look for the best light, interesting compositions, develop awareness of your surroundings and the supporting cast, tell the story of the wedding run up and building relationships with the bridal party to set the tone for the day.

Communicating with your clients: finding the right clients for you, showing what you want to shoot, setting the tone for your relationship from the get-go, delighting your clients and turning them into your biggest cheerleaders.

Posing: this is the big one! Cassandra and I will be unpacking our posing toolkit and sharing how we create images our clients love, encouraging you to develop your own unique formula for couples portraits. We’ll be sharing our secrets on what we look for in a location, setting up poses and what we do and say to make our couples feel at ease to create images are natural and fun. A stunning real couple will be joining us for this part!
