A day curated to Inspire...
Come join us at Came House, Dorset on Wednesday 6th October for a wonderful day of beauty, inspiration, education and kinship. Designed for aspiring luxury wedding photographers and set at a magical venue, our debut styled shoot workshop is set to be something pretty spectacular.
The Luminous styled shoot days have been carefully designed to give you the greatest opportunity to capture those images you really need to attract the couples you crave and take your business to the next level.
Designed to perfection
Our Stylist & Founder Kim has designed a timeless, elegant celebration full of detail to delight. "Under the Autumn Skies" is inspired by the architecture and history of our stunning venue together with the changing seasons. Kim's design focuses on a colour palette of white on white with accents of plum, tarnished gold and her signature touch of black.See the shoot inspiration board here
