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.

Mastering the Art of the Flatlay 

In the picturesque setting of Warwick Furnace Farm, Emily will lead you through the delicate process of crafting flatlays that tell a story. Learn to select and arrange elements that harmonize aesthetics and narrative, transforming simple objects into captivating compositions. Emily’s guidance will enhance your ability to capture texture, color, and mood, ensuring each flatlay is not just seen but felt.

Under her mentorship, you'll refine your skills in creating visually appealing and emotionally resonant flatlays, perfecting the balance between simplicity and sophistication, leading to the production of remarkably engaging images.

what you will learn

Ethereal Bridal Editorial

Beyond capturing the details of the day, Asya will teach you the magic of bridal editorials. Learn how to capture movement, craft a narrative, and infuse each frame with a sense of story and emotion that transcends traditional bridal photography.

In this lesson, Asya will share her approach to creating ethereal and cinematic bridal portraits, focusing on the interplay of light, landscape, and the fluid beauty of bridal gowns. You will learn to orchestrate these elements into a cohesive work of art, producing images that resonate with the romantic and timeless essence of the editorial style.
