the world of luxury weddings

Aren't we lucky? We get to work in the most wonderful industry and are constantly surrounded by love, beauty and excitement. But we know from experience that it can also be difficult to refine your business so that you work with the clients you really want to and stand out from the crowd.

As experienced luxury wedding professionals ourselves, we are passionate about helping others in the industry build their brands and book the clients they deserve. Our inspiring imagery, expert education, welcoming community and networking soirées will help you navigate the world of luxury weddings and take up your unique space in the industry. We invite you to join us.

imagery that inspires

To succeed in the world of weddings you need to connect with your audience in a way like no other. Couples choosing their wedding suppliers buy into who you are as a person as much as what you do so showing your authentic self to the world, and finding common interests with your audience is key. We have the imagery you need to illustrate your story, all taken in a way that will blend seamlessly into your wedding work. Become a member to have access to over 2500 images with a focus on weddings & events, luxury lifestyle and travel, plus our curated collections giving you an even easier way to select your favourites.

styled shoot days for photographers

All three of us have had multiple styled shoots published across the world and have successfully used them to elevate our individual brands. There is no point spending time, effort and your hard earned cash working on a shoot that won't get results. We have designed our styled shoot days to enable you to learn how to capture styled shoots with intention. Designed by Kim and hosted at some of the country's most beautiful locations, our styled shoot days are a must if you want to elevate your portfolio, learn how to capture the images you really want to and work with a stellar set of suppliers. With both Helen and Camilla on hand with plenty of time to advise and question, plus one-to-one business advice from Kim, you are able to use the images you capture however you wish and submit to whichever publications are right for your business. Limited photographer places are offered for each one, allowing you space and time with both the model and details.

expert education

When you are creative, business acumen might not always come naturally, but it is essential if you are to win the right work and enjoy the success you deserve. Establishing the right processes, confidently executing your online presence, getting financially and commercially savvy and thinking strategically are all not only vital but totally within your capability with the right support.

Our masterclasses, workbooks and resources are your guiding hand to building a distinctive wedding business that books.
