Wedding Photography: Lighting + Shooting

On May 16, 2023, I’m partnering with George P. Joell, III to offer a PPA Workshop on Wedding Photography: Lighting + Shooting.

“In this wedding photography class, you will learn how to capture every detail of a couple’s special day. From the bridal party getting ready, to the ceremony and reception. You will learn how to photograph every moment in a way that tells the story of the day. One of the key skills you will learn in this class is how to choose the right lens for each situation. Whether you are capturing portraits of the couple, candid shots of the guests, or details of the wedding decor, you will learn how to select the appropriate lens to achieve the desired effect. We will cover topics such as focal length, depth of field, and lens compression to help you make informed decisions about lens selection. We will also cover lighting techniques that are essential for capturing stunning wedding photographs. You will learn how to work with natural light, as well as how to use artificial lighting to create the desired mood and ambiance. We will discuss the use of flash, reflectors, and other lighting accessories to help you create beautiful images that highlight the beauty of the venue, the couple, and the decor. Throughout the course, we will focus on the importance of attention to detail. You will learn how to capture the little moments that make a wedding day so special, from the bride’s jewelry to the groom’s boutonniere. We will also discuss how to use composition and framing to create visually stunning images that will be treasured by the couple and their families for years to come. By the end of this class, you will have a solid understanding of the techniques and equipment needed to capture every detail of a wedding day, and you will have the skills to produce a beautiful and memorable wedding album.”
