Words from attendees

Thank you for the fun and enriching experience! It was helpful getting to see the many elements and factors that go into wedding photography: the poses you recommended, where you placed yourself for shots, the lighting that you aimed for, and how to progress through a timeline in real time. It was really insightful observing how you interacted with the bride, groom, their guests, and their surroundings. Thank you for introducing me to the world of film.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an educational and incredibly inspirational three days of mentoring! I feel a new and refreshed excitement about photography. Both you and Edward were such a joy to work with and such a wealth of knowledge!


I can't thank you enough for all of the information you gave me. The business advice was so incredibly helpful and gave me clear direction on what I need to do. I also really appreciate the fact that you were such an open book on all topics. The conversations we had were so encouraging.



These shoots are designed to cultivate your creative process while simultaneously provide you with more imagery for your portfolio.

Our first shoot begins with our welcome dinner – photographing a beautiful table, surroundings, food, and cocktails.


Day two includes two portraits sessions, focusing on natural movement, minimal posing, finding the light, and interacting with one’s subject. One will take place inside, and another outside, for portfolio variety.


Day three culminates in our full scale and completely unique wedding shoot. Beautiful table, one-of-a-kind details, and a gorgeous couple all feature in the exclusive design of this incredible experience.
