I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years and photographed well over 200 weddings. Learning exactly how to prepare, what to ask my couples and how to photograph a wedding without the stress of learning it all “on the clock” would have been great! Even second shooting, I couldn’t seem to remember all I wanted to ask the photographer I was assisting at the end of the day, and during the day there was too much going on to ask what I needed to know.

This wedding photographer workshop and training has been designed with all of those struggles in mind. It’s very different to set-up a styled shoot and make things look pretty, but what about a real wedding? What do you do when the pressure is on with your client/s watching you? My goal with this workshop is to address all of that and leave you with confidence to photograph your 1st, 20th or 50th wedding.

March 20th, 21st & 22nd at the George Washington Hotel in Washington, Pennsylvania.

This year I am so excited to announce that that Wedding Day Walk-Through Workshop will be hosted at the George Washington Hotel in Washington Pennsylvania. This hidden gem of a wedding venue is simply stunning and will make the most amazing backdrop for our “real fake wedding.”

This three day wedding training workshop will give each attendee a chance to photograph a full wedding without the the stress of a real wedding day. It allows each photographer the opportunity to learn how to prep for a wedding day from client meetings to the stressful timelines and paperwork. Each session has live Q&A as we go and the opportunity to work with real couples not models for Day #2’s real wedding day. Plus in the end, each photographer then has a wedding in their portfolio.

This workshop is for wedding photographers to be able to further their careers or kickstart their wedding career as amazing wedding photographers!
