Wedding Photography Course

This one day introduction to wedding photography is a vibrant, realistic intensive workshop aimed at amateur photographers who would like to take the first steps into the wedding photography industry.

This is a superb opportunity to experience and tackle each individual episode of a typical wedding under the guidance of our wedding photography tutor, Aga King.

The course is distinguished by its design, being constructed around real life episodes and the attendant real life photographic and logistic challenges which all weddings present to the photographer.

It is expected that by the end of the day you will have not only a far deeper insight into the dynamics of a wedding and how you, the photographer might respond to these events, but also, and consequently, come away with far more confidence and a much clearer idea of what to expect from your first, real life commissions.

Great introduction to wedding photography

Our wedding photography course normally runs from 10.00am to 5.00pm with two coffee breaks and around 45min for lunch. The course will thus run for around the same time as a typical wedding commission.

Although the course is designed very much as a proactive workshop with constant discussion and analysis of relevant issues, it is also highly structured and episodic.

During the workshop we will discuss most of the events taking place at a typical wedding, as well as practice some of them on real life locations, such as church, Parish Hall, venue/pub, church garden and a local park:

  • Meeting the couple
  • Bridal preparations
  • Informal group shots in the morning
  • Shooting the church, interior and exterior (details)
  • Brides arrival
  • Brides and bridesmaids entrance and walk up the aisle
  • Shooting the ceremony including exchange of rings
  • First kiss
  • Signing the register
  • Leaving the church
  • First couple shots in the church
  • Confetti
  • General congratulation
  • Group shots
  • Couple shots
  • Bridal shots
  • Shooting the reception venue
  • Entrance of the couple
  • Informal table shots
  • Cutting the cake
  • First dance
  • Party!

Each and every one of these episodes presents its own unique challenges both physical, logistical and, of course, photographic. We shall deal with each event in turn and through discussion, analysis and Aga’s broad experience as a documentary style photographer and portraitist, gain invaluable knowledge, tons of top tips and great insight into what is really involved when we shoot a real wedding.

A wedding, if we shoot it in a documentary way, is not just a vehicle for editorial glamour shots. It is much, much more. This course will explore how we can produce a genuine, comprehensive photographic record of the day, and how we can, therefore, produce images which your clients will treasure for the rest of their lives.
