Calling all photographers I am delighted to showcase the brand new Editorial Wedding Photography Workshop with FWS Sponsor Cat Hepple Photography!
I am a huge fan of Cat’s photographic style, so much so that she was THE photographer that I wanted for my first styled photo shoot. I am delighted that Cat is part of #teamamour for the upcoming shoot in Loire Valley and any aspiring photographers would be lucky to learn from this truly lovely and super talented lady.
Over to Cat to tell you about the workshop Cat: “I often receive emails from other photographers asking me about my approach and style and recently more and more have asked me if I’d consider training. My editorial style has developed gradually over the past few years of shooting weddings, but I’ve always been clear about the look and feel I’ve wanted to bring to my imagery.

I’m hugely influenced by fashion and magazines,and it’s that look which I’ve worked hard to build into my approach at weddings. This isn’t easy, as weddings are time pressured and uncontrollable events in so many ways. Magazine shoots can last a day, at a wedding I have just a few minutes. But it is perfectly possible to bring that look and feel to the shots and work quickly.
I work with so many couples who want exactly this, beautifully crafted editorial style imagery which doesn’t take all day. They too are influenced by magazines and movies and want a glamorous but natural set of images. This is my forte and couples seek me out especially for this approach.
My one day workshop, called The Editorial Wedding will show how I work, the methods I use and the approach to photography on a wedding day. So we’ll cover issues such as use of light, posing couples, working with time restraints and sourcing ideas and inspiration.
There will also be a live wedding shoot, with a real couple, so I can actually show what I do and the techniques I use. I have a fabulous team of experts providing the gown, the details and flowers etc, so it also means delegates get a chance to direct and take shots for their own wedding portfolios using the techniques they’ve been shown.
Creating editorial images of course leads to how to get those published and we’ll also be looking at this issue on the day, with tips and advice on creating images bloggers and magazines want to use.
The Editorial Wedding workshop is on Tuesday April 22nd just ahead of the busiest part of the wedding season, so it’s just in time to inspire and encourage other photographers as they begin the long season ahead. The workshop is to be held at the gorgeously beautiful Priory Cottages in Wetherby, near Leeds and runs from 9.30am to 6pm.
I have never really subscribed to the traditional way of creating images on a wedding day, I have honed my own style through experience and inspiration beyond the wedding industry. This course is perfect for anyone wanting to find their own style and unique approach to creating fashion inspired wedding images.
Places can be booked via my website:
Some spaces have already been filled and I’m excited to be sharing the day with some very talented people.”
I can’t wait to see the wonderful images created at the workshop!
