The Full Circle // A Wedding Photography Workshop
**** This post will be pinned to the top of the blog for the next couple of weeks, so just scroll on down for all the latest! ****
Well, we can't tell you how excited we are to announce something we've been working on for quite a while now. A wedding photography workshop unlike any other around!
We love the wedding photography industry and we've learned so much over the years from some of the best photographers in the world, which has helped us bring our studio to where it is today. We want to give back and share everything we know about creating and sustaining a successful wedding photography studio, that not only pays the bills but also feeds your creative soul.
It's our great pleasure to introduce...
A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
by Ryan + Beth Photographers!
THE FULL CIRCLE is an all-encompasing one day intensive shooting/classroom workshop, that will take you through our entire process of:
- booking the coolest couples (Website and Marketing)
- shooting their engagement session and wedding (We're shooting a mock wedding as part of the class!),
- our post production workflow (how to put out great quality work quickly and easily)
- heirloom album creation (album design and presentation)
- how to create great word-of-mouth advertising
So before we dive in and break down the class for you, we thought we'd give you a taste of the incredible venue that we're fortunate enough to utilize for this workshop!
We are going to have 6000 square feet of the gorgeous Lemarchand Mansion at our disposal! It's a photographers playground and THE perfect place to set up and shoot all the different parts of our mock wedding. Check out a couple of snap shots we grabbed the other day. It's a phenomenal space. Also, let's not forget that the beautiful Edmonton River Valley is literally right outside the door! Oh yes, we plan on using everything. :)
So here's the breakdown of the class. Ya it's a BIG breakdown, but we've got lots to cover! :)
ATTRACT (AND BOOK) THE PERFECT COUPLES FOR YOU, YOUR STYLE AND YOUR BUSINESS
Booking clients is a good thing, but booking THE RIGHT clients is priceless. They help move your photography business forward, they inspire you, they make you WANT to go that extra mile and give it 110%! We'll show you how to make it easier to find those perfect couples (and for them to find you!).
SO MR AND MISS RIGHT SENT YOU AN EMAIL...NOW WHAT?
From the initial reply to the first meeting, to the contracts and booking them in your calendar. We'll cover how to wow your clients from the get-go and talk about the studio management software that makes it all a breeze!
IT'S TIME FOR THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION!
Engagement sessions are an essential part of our couples wedding photography experience. We'll go over how to make the very most of the this session and what it takes to bring your couples excitement for their wedding photos to the max!
PRE-WEDDING // THE GEAR
We'll talk through and demonstrate every essential piece of gear we bring to a wedding. From lenses, cameras, flashes, ExpoDiscs to sewing kits and breath mints, there's a good reason for everything we lug around in our bags!
PRE-WEDDING // THE PLAN
Planning a relaxed, photo-friendly wedding day with your couple is pretty darn important if you ask us. If your couple can have a wonderful, fun filled, easygoing day that also gives you the time to do what you do best, it just doesn't get much better than that! Now's the time to learn how to lock in a great timeline that works great for everyone involved.
PRE-WEDDING // THE INSPIRATION
To create great work, you've got to be inspired. Learn to build into what inspires you!
GRAB YOUR CAMERA. LETS SHOOT A WEDDING!
Shoot along side us and learn how we photograph every step of the wedding day. The shoes, the dress, the ceremony, the bride and groom portrait session, the reception details and even the first dance!
With the help of some of the best and most exclusive wedding vendors in Edmonton, we're bringing an incredible mock wedding to life!
YOU ROCKED IT OUT ON THE WEDDING DAY! NOW LETS GET TO WORK...
Without a well thought-out, streamlined post-production workflow you could find yourself spending more hours in front of a computer screen than anything else...and that's not very much fun.
Get that wedding imported, edited, blogged and processed in no time, while still adhering to your studios high standards. Wow your clients with fast turn around times and get your life back!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ALBUM
For us, the album is THE reason why we shoot the wedding. The couples story is told through a beautiful, unique, hand crafted album that becomes the centrepiece of their home. It's a family heirloom. We'll go through our photo selection and design process and show you why it is our favourite and most rewarding part of our wedding workflow.
THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
It's so much fun to see the couples whose weddings we shot the year before now attending this years wedding as guests! You did a great job shooting their big day...and they told their friends! Word of mouth and referrals are by far the strongest and most effective form of advertising out there.
So there you have it! One incredible day of learning, shooting and fun. The students who take this class will walk away having a clear picture of what it looks like to own and operate a successful boutique wedding photography studio. This workshop is a great fit for any photographer looking to take their photography and business to the next level! The workshop will start at noon and end around 8pm, so we'll providing some yummy treats to make sure you don't go hungry :)
