Wedding Workshop - A couple in love


A few weeks back I met up with a bunch of photographers to take part in a wedding seminar/workshop run by Emily Quinton. We were all there to learn about the business and Emily was very open and honest. No subject was out of bounds and while we talked about creativity, marketing, blogging and the wedding day itself, I found myself getting more inspired. I came away with a book filled with notes from Emily's seminar and lots of ideas for my own business. It was a truly inspiring day and it was great to walk away, feeling confident that I am on the right path and knowing what I need to do to grow as a photographer and as a business.

With the morning spent listening to Emily and asking lots of questions, we moved outside to start shooting and firstly, watch Emily do what she does best. The lovely Charis and Owen joined us and moved out from behind the camera to become our models for the afternoon. With such gorgeous models and the shoot being styled by Charley of London Bride I knew we were in for a treat. 
We each had 15 to 20 minutes to shoot, similar to what you get on a wedding day, and while I was nervous and very conscious that I only had 15 mins, Emily's talk earlier had given me the confidence to use that time get the shots I wanted.










I just wanted to say thanks to Charis and Owen for being fantastic models and the most in love couple I have ever met, Charley of London Bride, for the fantastic styling and props and Miss Pickering for the gorgeous flowers. Also, the biggest thanks goes to Emily Quinton, the workshop was a great experience and I came away feeling inspired and confident.

The hand holding photo and the two that are directly under it are my absolute favorites. The angle in the one where he's kissing her shoulder is so interesting and unique.

What a wonderful workshop to be part of!

I just adore this set of images. If I were Charis and Owen I would be over the moon! I particularly like the tender close ups and I love your post processing.
