Wedding Photography Workshop 2017 - Owen House Wedding Barn.
Hosted by Jonny Draper
Where to start. Why do Jonny's Wedding Photography Workshop? Well having done two of his workshops at the end of the 2016 which I not only throughly enjoyed but I came away completely inspired and educated. I wanted to start 2017 inspired and raring to go. In an industry which is saturated in talented wedding photographers especially here in the Northwest, how does one become visible? Every photographer has their own 'Something' and I want to add something to me, my style, my workflow and be able to give my couples more.
My business recently hit its 3 year mark, 2017 is my second full year doing weddings, with the most I have ever had booked in, Terrified? No. Frustrated? I was a little. As artists we are forever growing and evolving. Being a very self critical being, I always want more I want to be the best I can be. After months and years of comparing myself, trying to imitate and wanting my work to look like some one else's. I realised that my style and my work is something to be embraced. You start off wanting to be something and then you realise what you've got has been there from day one. No one has what I am or what I create. Instead of ripping my work to pieces I wanted to start thinking wow thats actually not bad! I wanted to not only start to celebrate my work (which must be okay as people continue to book with me!) but I want to take that to the next level. Jonny's a great teacher and his courses are a great place to meet other great photographers with the same passion and desire to learn.
We were so lucky to have some amazing suppliers on board on the day too, the models were bloody gorgeous. The venue is just to die for, set in the heart of knutsford, surrounded by the cheshire countryside, and designed clearly for beautiful and unique weddings. This venue has so many places for stunning and artistic photography. Romantic lighting, a wall of vintage doors, and hay bales for that perfect country barn feel. If my boyfriend is reading this (this could be the one) they even have cows! Who dosent love a good cow.
If any of my couples are looking for suppliers heres a list of all the suppliers from my photographs from the workshop. What did I get out of this day? Well maybe you'l have to keep watching my work this year and see :)
