Whether you are new to wedding photography, considering starting a business, or even if you have been in business for a couple of years, this course is for you.

Together we will break down some of the biggest issues for wedding photographers, before, during and even after the wedding day. We will discuss planning our photography needs with the couple, review creating a customized photo timeline for each wedding, how to express what you need and how to make sure that you are communicating accurately and positively with your clients. We will work together on a styled session, capturing the details of the day and learn how to move quickly and accurately through a scene, utilizing primarily natural light. Make sure you bring your camera!
