From documenting the organic moments to posing your couple, developing your unique approach can take years of experience. That's why we are so excited to share our processes and philosophies with you.
Effortlessly Elevated Posing
Beyond mastering posing techniques, Emily will guide you in discovering the art of embracing calm amidst the high-pressure environment of a wedding portrait session. Learn techniques that broaden your perceptiveness, enabling you to finesse delicate intricacies and command every aspect of your composition, while naturally relaxing your subjects into effortless poses.
Through this journey, Emily's mentorship will nurture your self-assurance, fostering a bond of trust with your couples, resulting in the creation of elevated and extraordinary images.
Capturing the in-between moments
As storytellers, we know there is a fine balance between knowing when to step in and when to allow a moment to unfold organically. In this lesson, Asya will teach her documentary-styled approach that allows her to capture not just how the moment looks, but how it feels.
Each couple has their own love and it’s important to create space for their authenticity, allowing you to capture their story. It is often these unscripted moments that bring depth to the narrative. In her lesson, Asya will teach you how to guide your couples with movement based posing, providing margin for magical, in between moments.
Let the day begin! We'll first meet up at Power Plant Studios for some coffee and small talk before diving into the day.
We will walk over to the stunning Merchant’s Exchange for a timeless yet contemporary couples photoshoot. This neutral session will blend seamlessly into any portfolio.
We'll split into small groups and take turns between capturing the models and getting some fresh headshots. And don't worry, each attendee will have 1:1 time with the models!
We'll enjoy a well-earned lunch with the incredible Susan from the Styled Bride. This is the perfect time to pick her brain about becoming a photographer that high-end vendors and clientele want to work with.
Next up, we're diving into a full-blown styled shoot at Power Plant Productions. Get ready for high fashion, stunning florals, a chic neutral setting with elegant fall accents, and plenty of creative direction to bring your artistic vision to life.
Last but not least, we will wrap up the day with some wine before going our separate ways.
