An Artist Life

Friday brings much excitement. With news that we are so close to moving my thoughts are with new projects which lie ahead. Finally an artist life is just a fingertip away and can’t wait to start designing concepts, be a maker of sets, and bring my inner world to a tangible reality. This is where my heart is and makes me feel alive. But I can’t do it alone and hope that some of you beautiful talented wedding creatives and makers will work with me on what I can only say will be a beautiful journey xx

Couples Portrait Workshop Session

Getting comfortable in front of the camera is no easy feat if you are camera shy. It can be so nerve-racking and have a profound effect on the outcome of your wedding photographs. They are more than likely to be the photographs you’ll frame and you want them to look beautiful, natural, and feeling like you.

A wedding day is fast paced with little time for the photographer to get you relaxed in front of the camera. So a little bit of practice and some sound advice can make all the difference to your overall experience and photographs from your wedding day.

Although similar to an engagement shoot, the main focus of the workshop is to give you constructive advice on how to achieve natural looking photographs no matter who your photographer is on your day. We’ll talk through how nerves affect you, and positive ways you can re-channel this constructively together. Tips will be given on natural directing techniques you can accomplish yourselves, as the more instinctively you interact together without a photographer overly posing you, the more organic everything will look.

This workshop is designed with the camera shy in mind, as well as couples who are just looking for a few hints and tips to take their couple portraits to the next level.

What’s included:
* 1 hour workshop session (one couple per session)
* 20 High-res images from your session delivered via an online gallery

Workshops are held locally to Witham, in Essex.  Exact location confirmed at time of booking.
