Course Overview:
This course is ideal if you are about to shoot a wedding or you have shot a couple of weddings and would like to learn more and take it further. Shooting with a Bride & Groom on location you will learn everything from how to act at the wedding to getting those must have shots.

On the first day we talk you through the basics of modern wedding photography and then the rest of the day is a practical wedding shoot. On day two we shoot a bride on a "Trash the Dress" shoot, something that all brides like to look at but is difficult to get them to agree to without showing them what the pictures will look like! On day 3 we review the shots from the 2 days before and guide you through the digital workflow element of wedding photography, as well as talking you through how to price your work and touch on how to market your work, including the importance of your website. Finally we look at all the different albums and presentation products that are available and how to put together a wedding album online.

You will have full copyright on the images you shoot, so you will be able to add them to your portfolio of display work. You will also have the knowledge to start your wedding Photography business and the tools in place to strive forward with developing your wedding photography style.
