Has the representation of a couple’s joy on their wedding day been marginalized in our industry by the over use of actions and effects? Storey will demonstrate that telling a joyful, natural, elegant wedding day story is not a lost art. Telling a great wedding story with photographs that are joyful, professional and powerful is visual communication at its best.

During this program, Storey wills discuss, demonstrate and illustrate:

  • How to take believable candid photographs and capture more moments
  • How to finesse your poses and prompts so that your clients look relaxed, interested and happy
  • The importance of the “best fit” for your clients as well as you

To Make a Long Story Short: Simplify Your Wedding Photography And Reclaim Your Life

8:00am to 9:30am

The secret to a great wedding story is SIMPLICITY, in the capture and in the finished image. Stop overwhelming your clients with too much! A wedding is the birth of a new family and it is just as important to capture the beautiful “found” moments as it is to create the timeless “asked for” portraits, all without overwhelming the couple.

Emphasis will be on :

  • Techniques and equipment required to capture joy, romance, and fun while maintaining technical control.
  • How to distill a 10-12 hour wedding coverage with thousands of images into a succinct yet meaningful collection of timeless photographs
  • Ways to shoot economically, maximizing storytelling while minimizing wastage
  • Master the art of culling and finessing images using Storey’s “round three” knock out approach.
