GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS
A wedding photography workshop that get’s straight down to the nitty gritty.
I’ll be talking and walking you through every step of being a professional wedding photographer in a really relaxed and informal way as I think that is the best was to learn. I’m talking about finding your ideal couples, making your business more efficient, workflow, finding your creative mindset, posing and lighting on a live shoot with a professional model, processing with a live edit and most importantly taking yourself to the next level and winning awards.
The secrets out and I’m sharing…
You can read all about my first sold out DOWN TO BUSINESS workshop here!
“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
“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
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, 6 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.
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!
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.

“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
