the luminous scholarship

We are passionate about helping creative business owners in the wedding industry make lasting changes that revolutionise both how they do business and what they get out of their lives. We know we make a huge difference, but we also recognise that for some, often those most in need, the very idea of investing in themselves is unthinkable.

That's why we founded The Scholarship. It's an all access pass to our services for free. No strings.

what's it all about?

There's no doubt we are living in challenging times. Covid has hit the wedding industry hard; sadly some businesses haven't survived and some are holding on by the skin of their teeth. We know that one of the keys to a successful luxury wedding photography business is quality not quantity. But to attract those high end clients you need a high end portfolio; our styled shoot workshop is designed to give you that, with bells on. The successful scholarship student this year will receive a free place on our Came House styled shoot workshop on the 6th October worth £895 plus three follow up business consultancy calls to help you carve out a plan for the future and ensure that your business can bring you creative and financial freedom in the long term.

A NOTE FROM KIM'S PREVIOUS SCHOLARSHIP STUDENTS

At a time when my brand needed refining and strengthening, Kim’s input was exactly what I needed. Calm, measured, and always relevant, Kim provided me with an amazing level of support both face to face and via calls. My brand is now stronger, more resilient and able to grow in the right direction, even weathering these more difficult times.
SIAN CORNISH, LANCASTER & CORNISH
I can't quite express how grateful I am for Kim and the positive impact that her mentoring has had on my business. Within 6 weeks of implementing her advice, I had booked four new weddings with dream clients and I truly owe that to her support and expertise.
RACHEL DALTON, RACHEL DALTON WEDDINGS
For the first time in my career, I have learnt to value my time and my craft. Thanks to your calm and intuitive conversation, I have been able to make changes that mean I am booking my ideal clients, my business is financially viable, I have survived a pandemic and I can say not to the clients that don't fit me!
