DOWN TO BUSINESS
As Toni is one of the top photographers around I knew her workshop would be a great way to get motivated, inspired and stay sharp before the wedding season kicks off…It was just that. Toni’s workshop is perfect for all skill levels – simple enough for entry level wedding photographers, but with enough top tips and advice for the more seasoned ones too. She covers the entire process of her wedding photography from enquiry to delivery and explains her workflow in a way that makes you wonder why you’ve spent so long making life hard for yourself. Toni has expert knowledge of lighting and posing and encourages everyone to get involved so that they leave with awesome photo’s and the ability to do it again for themselves. The workshop is delivered in a warm and friendly way. All questions are welcomed and answered – there are no stupid questions (which is great for me!) There are no egos, and above all the whole day is great fun!! Get booked on…David Scholes

I attended Toni’s ‘Down to Business’ workshop in Clitheroe in March 2018. Having spent my entire professional career as a senior manager in major retail roles I was curious to see how I could adapt my sales knowledge to Toni’s workflow. From the very moment the workshop started, Toni made us all feel welcome and she welcomed questions. Toni’s no-nonsense approach and years of experience shone through during the day, most of what I thought I knew was thrown out of the window. Toni’s methods are crafted from years of first hand experience, not from a text book. I was amazed at how personal and relevant she could make the training session. I learned many new tactics for both attracting new clients and for converting enquiries into bookings. Toni also has tips for ensuring that previous couples become serious advocates for my company, massively increasing my network of business ambassadors. I would recommend this workshop to anyone involved in Wedding Photography, regardless of your current level of success or previous experience. Eye opening, honest, fascinating and insightful. Many thanks Toni.Neil Ridley
“I could not have anticipated what an inspirational and enjoyable day Toni was going to provide. Her wedding workshop was so informative and comprehensive in it’s content that I came away buzzing with excitement. Her friendly manner was combined with a lovely relaxed atmosphere which made it all the more enjoyable. Trade secrets backed by experience and her own success reinforced the quality of the information she shared and the potential of her ideas and suggestions”Jane Wild
“I don’t think words can explain well enough how helpful Toni and the workshop were. I always came away from shoots uninspired and feeling like I’d rushed as I was instantly writing off venues that weren’t surrounded with beautiful gardens. Using spaces that were not conventionally beautiful on the workshop shoot I now feel confident that I can make creative, amazing portraits out of literally any space I can find! As well as gaining knowledge on how to read and use the light in a more creative way Toni explained all the technical sides in a simplified way so even technical novices like me can understand SEO and branding to find the ideal client. Best of all no questions were off limits, Toni was so honest about all sides of running a successful business which was really refreshing and motivating. I cannot recommend Toni and her workshops enough!”Olivia Whittaker
How do I become a better wedding photographer?
Honestly? By failing. I know you may find this quite surprising but making mistakes is the ultimate way to learn. For me it’s really important as it’s part of the creative process. I think every creative person feels like their work is pretty pants from time to time. The truth is, it’s probably not. But, that’s what makes us continue to strive to be the better version of ourselves.
I’m a pretty honest person. I want to be honest with you. By being open and truthful I know I can help you become a better wedding photographer. I’m happy to share all my experiences from shooting as little as 4 weddings in my first year to now, 8 years later not only running a successful wedding photography business but by being announced the ‘Top female wedding photographer in the UK” by the Masters of wedding photography UK & IRE.
I honestly can’t thank you enough for today. I came in lacking in some confidence and ambition, and came away with a smile on my face and some images that I am extremely proud of. More importantly, I came away with so much knowledge and my mind buzzing with ideas and inspiration. I’ve always looked up to you and your work and the way you went about talking through everything you do and guided me with mine was second to none and so helpful!! Things I haven’t got in 3 years at university, I’ve picked up within 1 day of being with you. I will definitely be coming again! Thank you!Liv Fox
Finding and using the light for effective posing
Seeing the light is one thing but using the light for creative and flattering posing is something many photographers struggle with. The creative eye of a wedding photographer often sees things in a different way. I’ll be showing you my method of thinking and seeing. I guarantee that you’ll leave not only feeling more creative but you’ll see little spots of light and spaces that you’ve never seen before.
I’ll be taking you through ways to pose without posing. I’ll teach you to give direction that is easy to follow. We will be using the indoor and outdoor space so you’ll leave fully equipped for shooting in any location, space or venue.
On the day there will be a live shoot with a gorgeous model in a wedding dress. All made up so you can create some awesome photographs that you can’t wait to show off. I know important it is to build your wedding portfolio, that’s why there is a maximum of 5 places. This means there will be more than enough time for each person to gain confidence in shooting by directing the model themselves. Let’s leave the elbow fights and tackles for the good spots to those on the rugby pitch!
Toni Darcy wow what can I say…this is the best money I have spent on trying to up my game. You shared some very simple tips which are definitely a game changer for me from posing to how you market yourself. I came away and within 24 hours I’ve already made some changes. Thanks Toni for opening my eyes to a new way of working. You truly are at the top of your game. Thank you! xxStacey Oliver
Wedding photography workflow
Don’t get scared. I’ll be running through my workflow with you, step by step. From the moment an enquiry comes in to my inbox to the second I deliver the final set of images. I will provide with the key tools to help your business run smoothly allowing you to spend less time working out the best window to throw your laptop from, and more time taking awesome pictures.
Finding your own creative mindset
You love weddings, that’s why you’re a wedding photographer, right? Wrong.
“Having already been beyond impressed with the amazing portfolio builder I did with Toni, I only had to think for a second before jumping on her “Down to Business” day. I’ve done quite a few wedding courses already but I felt this one would be different in a good way and it was that! So much relevant and new material and practical shooting in places I wouldn’t of thought of previously, all delivered in the most comfortable of settings, in a very clear and concise way. The log fire was the icing on the cake, I didn’t want to leave! Thanks again Toni for making it all seem so easy, actually achievable and with so much honesty”Nick Mizen
