We regularly sing the praises of attending creative workshops here on RMW, as although most of our gorgeous readers are brides, lots of you are also budding wedding industry professionals (some are both)! So when the super stylish Elle, of Inspire Hire contacted me about a creative photography workshop she’s hosting, along with Amber of Liberty Pearl Photography and Renate of WIT Photography, I knew I had to share.
The workshop will be full of practical advice about building your photography brand, attracting the couples you’d like to be shooting, social media best practices and getting your work published. These workshops sell out fast and tickets for day one are already gone, but if you’d like to attend the 6th April course, read on for more details…
The 5th and 6th of April will see a coming together of talented wedding industry creatives on the stunningly beautiful Cornish Coastline to provide a workshop for wedding photographers.
The two days of workshops have been created to give photographers the chance to hone their skills and build their portfolios with coastal and destination style photography. These intimate workshops will feature coaching from two renowned wedding photographers – Liberty Pearl and WIT Photography alongside stylist Elle Winsor Grime, of Inspire Hire.
The workshops are organised by Amber Leach, founder of Liberty Pearl Photography, an award winning wedding photography business. Amber started the workshops in April 2016 and they have been a huge success, with spaces selling out every time. Amber has captured couples all over the world for the past 3 years including Cape Town, New York and Ibiza.
Amber has partnered with Renate from WIT photography who is an established destination wedding photographer based in Holland and her work is just STUNNING! Renate is a workshop expert and has attended some of the most awesome workshops around the world. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things weddings!
Also on board is amazing stylist Inspire Hire. Elle will be styling a Mediterranean Inspired Beach Shoot, and a Miami Inspired Destination Wedding photo shoot and will be giving a session on “Styling tips and how to get your work published”.
Elle’s work is absolutely beautiful and is widely published, with frequent National and Regional press coverage, both online and in print. Elle also works with businesses wishing to create on brand images for their websites, brochures, advertising and for general PR. She creatively directs and styles for photography/film shoots for products, lifestyle and interiors as well as wedding and event styling.

“I love empowering people to reach their full potential, inspiring them and seeing their businesses thrive! It is so amazing to know that I have the opportunity to change someone’s business and their life! I am passionate about photography and I love everything about weddings and I know that if I had attended a workshop like this my business would have excelled much quicker. It took me 2 years to reach my ideal client because I was photographing the wrong types of weddings; I didn’t have the portfolio to reflect the style of weddings I wanted to shoot and clients I wanted to attract. I have set up this workshop to give photographers the head start that I never had, to tell them where I went right and where I went wrong.
I LOVE running the workshops; I love meeting new people, teaching people and sharing my journey and my experiences with other photographers to help make their business bloom!
I believe that everyone has the ability to create a business that they are not only passionate about, but completely in love with! I love to travel around the world, so destination wedding photography combines two of my favourite hobbies! I am a huge fan of the beautiful workshop venue St Moritz Hotel.” Amber at Liberty Pearl Photography
THESE WORKSHOPS ARE FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO…
Increase their portfolio, improve their skills, learn more about engagement shoots, styled shoots, getting their work published and increase bookings, work more productively and attract the right clients for the type of weddings they wish to shoot.
The second day of the workshop focuses on destination weddings and elopements, and is perfect for those who wish to build and refresh their wedding photography portfolio. One of the primary focuses of the workshop is learning how to shoot to get their work published in wedding magazines and on top wedding blogs such as RMW, and Elle will go through the ins and outs of planning a styled shoot.
The workshops are great for established wedding photographers who would like a boost or for photographers who would like to start a career in wedding photography switching from another type of photography.
“This workshop gave me the opportunity to try out some ideas, something not always possible when shooting for a real bride and groom at a time constrained wedding. I now have much more confidence to test my creativity at weddings in the future.
It has provided me with some fabulous promotional material to build my own professional website and my images have also been published in both an online wedding blog and printed magazine. The expense of attending the workshop has already paid for itself by securing me with a number of weddings for 2017 already. I’ve got a lot to thank Liberty Pearl for, both at the workshop and with the wealth of help and advice since. I can’t wait to book onto another workshop soon!” Mimosa Photography
“I wanted to go on a workshop to practice posing and get some gorgeous styled pictures for my portfolio. I really enjoyed the whole day! Learning about flat-lay styling, discussing blogging, seeing how Amber edits in Lightroom and of course shooting alongside Amber and the other photographers were all absolutely fab! I have had an image from the day selected by Lookslikefilm to go on their blog and have had a massive response to the images from the workshop in general! I would thoroughly recommend these courses to anyone – as long as I’m booked in first!! xx” Michelle Cordner Photography
“Absolutely loved Ambers workshop! All her tips where incredibly helpful, the day was put together perfectly, and all the suppliers she got together to put on an amazing day where lovely!” Angel Wade Photography
