  1. Rezuan

    It is very much effective and informative post for the wedding photographers. Thank for sharing this type of helpful post.

  2. Douglas Hall

    I’m having a hard time getting through this workshop. Pye is a great instructor and the course materials are comprehensive. I love the chapters where it’s just him presenting the materials. His teaching style is precise and professional. However, there are a lot of chapters where he is team teaching with his assistant. That’s where this workshop breaks down. She has the most annoying giggle and she giggles a LOT! The professionalism of this workshop leaves a lot to be desired when the two of them are co-teaching. She has great insight, and her contributions are valuable, BUT the giggling at things that aren’t even funny, really detract from the message. It’s a shame, as I had high hopes for this workshop.

  3. Diane Lee

    I’ve watched this course as it was being released, workshop by workshop and over the past year, my photography has gone from good to great. I am a self taught photographer who was doing okay for myself, booking clients in the mid tier price range). I had my ways of doing things and they were creating happy clients. But this workshop challenged me to try new things and take a next step. One good example is family portraits. That part of the wedding day, I usually just “got through” meaning I did a lot of standard posing and lighting and saved my creativity for the bride/groom portraits and wedding party. This course taught me to try “editorial posing” as Pye calls it, with unique poses, layers, and interesting arrangements …. Those photos have received really great feedback from my clients. this is just one of many many ways i became a better photographer.

  4. Tim Cord

    Excellent info. Pye, thank you for teaching in an entertaining yet comprehensive way. I’ll be rewatching these every once in a while as a refresher.

  5. Kim Yang

    All I can say is Wow! This is the best course on photography I have ever seen (and I’ve seen over a dozen from all of the major websites). I am a much more confident photographer after watching these videos … more confident in my communication with my clients, with my lighting, with my posing, with my time detail photos, with my family formals, and really with every part of the wedding. Thank you SLRLounge
