We’re pleased to offer Wedding Photography Training, Mentoring & Coaching.

Being a wedding photographer is hugely satisfying and enjoyable, But as with all creative jobs, competition is incredibly high. So how do you carve a successful career in wedding photography? How do you stand out in a crowded marketplace?

We’ve been full-time wedding photographers for over 14 years now, we’ve shot hundreds of weddings and have learnt a lot along the way, so we’re delighted to offer guidance and advice to other photographers.

With so many Wedding Photography Training courses & wedding photography workshops available, you’ll find we can offer you something a bit different, a more personal, tailored-to-you experience – we don’t have a standard set of things we teach, we create a bespoke plan to suit you.

We aim to target your needs, rather than offering you a one-size-fits-all business plan or method. We don’t impose our ideas & techniques on your business or make your business a clone of ours. Instead, we will like to take a holistic approach, analyse your business strengths & weaknesses, with an aim of helping you to identify areas to build upon.


Wedding photography is a desirable job, with a perceived low bar to entry (ie. you own a camera and you’re nice!)

We’ve seen a huge increase in people wanting to be wedding photographers over the past decade and we’ve seen dramatic increases in searches for things like ‘how much do wedding photographers make?‘ and ‘How do you become a wedding photographer?’

This has only made the industry more competitive, making it harder to stand out – it’s also resulting in many different people ‘cashing-in’ by offering courses, training and mentoring.

Ok, so why us and why should you trust us to help your business?

Well, briefly – Simon has an extensive photography knowledge, the hand-on experience of running a hugely successful photography business for 14+ years – a business that has generated on average 400 enquiries every year for the past decade.

He also has many years experience in design and SEO and a strong appreciation and understanding of the direction and trends of the wedding industry.

Before joining Simon in wedding photography and pioneering the filmmaking side to the business, Heather was a member of the Chartered institute of marketers, so has a wealth of knowledge around marketing, business growth and customer relations – alongside a huge range of filmmaking and photography knowledge.

We also have the experience of photographing weddings at some of the UKs most prestigious wedding venues, from Hampton Court Palace and Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle and Belvoir Castle, Goodwood House, Thornbridge Hall and Brympton House – so we can give you the benefit of our experiences covering high-end weddings and the different approaches these require both to acquire and to photograph.

So, between us we have all of the skills needed to start, develop and grow any wedding photography business, whatever stage you may be at.



For people that prefer an intensive experience, We offer half & full day, one-on-one training to help you generate momentum, rekindle your creativity and give your business a boost.

We can also offer multiple shorter sessions (either face-to-face or via Skype) over a period of time, enabling us to work towards goals and monitor progress, as well as adapt to the changing business environment. This style of mentoring suits people who prefer to ‘learn by doing’, as we can discuss things for you to work on, practice & implement – then reconvene to discuss & evaluate.

Whether you’re new to wedding photography or you have experience and are looking for a fresh perspective, we can tailor any of the sessions to meet your individual needs.

We can cover:

+ Where you are now and where you would like to be with your photography.

+ How to find & define your style & identity.

+ Marketing, advertising and how to find the right type of clients.

+ SEO and how to manage your website to bring in the best traffic.

+ Networking with other vendors, how to build real relationships.

+ Tips for success and how to learn from my mistakes.

+ Business plans and targeted growth.

+ How to stay creative throughout a long wedding season & avoid burnout.

+ How to develop a secure and efficient workflow.

+ How to develop your own visual style & consistency through processing.

+ We can also provide portfolio, website, brand & social media reviews if required.

We’re happy to offer as many or as few sessions as you require, whether you require a one-off business tune-up & inspiration session, or a longer-term coaching course, where we can work towards specific goals & monitor your progress.
