Discover photography tips on romantic styling, workflow, and branding that will help get your engagement sessions recognized by prospective clients along with established industry publications.
"Static poses, bland backgrounds, and overly Photoshopped photos of couples are no longer suitable to a growing demographic of stylish and design-savvy customers. Engagement and wedding photography has taken a bewitching turn toward spirited, compelling imagery that showcases a couple's individual personality and style," Williams said. "Together, photographers and couples are energizing the wedding industry by celebrating couples' engagements with creative, unique photo shoots and putting the focus on the couple's relationship and connection with one another."
As a photographer, you'll learn how to diversify the way you interact with clients and style your shoots. Successfully booking romantic portrait sessions and providing your couples with creative, playful, and beautiful images can mean a lasting - and lucrative - relationship.
In addition to technical guidance on lighting and equipment, Williams offers tips on building your brand and getting your work published. Read testimonials from wedding professionals, bloggers, editors, stylists, and some of Williams' very own clients.
