Kick Ass Workshop: European Vacation

Scotland travel photos-27

The Kick Ass Wedding Photography Workshop is going to Europe! More specifically, the sunny, mountainous, autumnal French Pyrenees!

The workshop with be three full days of fun. There will be learning, shooting, hot tubs, swimming, frolicking and lots of games of Cards Against Humanity. This is not a workshop for anyone wanting to shoot traditional weddings, this is for people willing to get out of their comfort zone and be just a little bit daring. We have the best job in the world – and our photos should reflect just how awesome it is!

Day One you will learn:

How to attract your perfect couple
Nailing your about me page
The benefit of blogging and getting it right
My secret weapon for bagging the bookings
How to capture the fun at a wedding
Simple tips for relaxing and naturally posing your couples
Getting your couples to be adventurous
Nailing dancefloor shots
Post processing
Business funs, including SEO tips, pricing and dealing with complaints

Day Two we will have:

One-to-one portfolio, website and brand reviews
Super gorgeous bride and groom Rachel and Steve – my powder paint couple from last summer – at your disposal to shoot in and around the house and grounds
Wedding couple portraits in the mountains

Day Three will be:

A super cool styled shoot styled by our very own Rachel who is an art director (as well as a photo editor)

*Schedule order may change

The venue is a private house called Moulin de la Materette, based 90 minutes from Toulouse or Carcasson Airport. Or it’s a 12-hour drive from the south of England if you fancy a road trip! It has extensive grounds, including a river and lots of woodland and a heating swimming pool. The workshop will be limited to 16 students.

All meals and four nights’ accommodation included.

Flights and transfers are not included. Arrive 10th Oct, depart 14th Oct. Wood fired hot tub and sauna available (yep!) for a small extra fee.


A bit about me: I’ve been shooting weddings since February 2013. In that time I’ve shot 81 solo weddings, including 42 weddings in 2015 and 32 booked for 2016 (as of Dec 2015). But it’s not all about numbers. Every single wedding is awesome. I love every couple and I’m super excited about each one – because I tailored my business around getting the right couples for me. This means that not only do I love my job, but also my couples get photos they really love, because we’re a great match. I’ve won the Rising Star award from Professional Photo magazine and been shortlisted for Hitched and The Wedding Industry Awards. I’m a member of Fearless Photographers and have been featured in Marie Claire, Rock n Roll Bride, Rock My Wedding, and several other blogs and wedding mags.

Are you in? Let’s go kick some ass!
