As wedding photographers our lives can be run over by the summer season.
Our relationships with friends and family can easily become fragmented.
Years pass and many of us look around asking,
“What happened to my personal relationships?”
Why not pursue “winter weddings” as a way to balance life?
We’ve been doing this for 15+ years and will show you how we photograph winter weddings

Winter Weddings
make photographers better

Winter weddings are intense.
They are not for everyone!
It’s dark. It’s cold. It’s wet. It’s windy.
Light fades fast. Time disappears!
Resistance is everywhere. 
Yet for the bold & brave . . .
Magic is waiting!
You will become a better photographer
We must master light
We must be decisive
We must EVOLVE!

How will we learn?

There will be lots of hands-on challenges with quality time to practice skills and refine perspectives.

We are huge fans of round table discussions where everyone can discuss their challenges, strengths and weaknesses, so everyone can improve!

Share the best of the best insights/tips/tricks, and have conversations about life, weddings, work, marketing, business, and more.
