Wedding Photography Workshop







This workshop is designed for any photographer who wants to take their wedding photography to the next level.

Ideally you have photographed at least a few weddings as a primary or second photographer.  You should know your camera well; how to shoot on manual, how to shoot raw, the basics of exposure and how to use your on-camera flash.

The workshop will include shoots designed for learning and lots of open discussion.

On day one, we will will focus on creating meaningful authentic images for your clients.  We will work on seeing light, utilizing exposure for dramatic storytelling, making the most of a room in a time limited situation, finding moments, shooting for story, creating real moments during portraits.

On day two, we will have an image critique and will talk about business, branding, clients and pricing.

COST:  $575 for two days

The workshop is limited to 10 students.
Price includes continental breakfast and light lunch on both days.


What last year’s students said about the workshop


“The Moment is Real” workshop is an excellent example of useful photography education without the extra fluff at an affordable price. Diane’s incredible insight into recording emotions and seeing moments on a wedding day by simply changing the way you shoot is beyond immeasurable. No need for fancy lenses or fussy flash accessories, all you need is to think outside the box and that is what Diane enforces in her workshop. I highly recommend “The Moment is Real” as a high value, low cost photography workshop from an award winning photographer.

This workshop provided the tools for me to immediately incorporate into my wedding day workflow. Diane is an open book and is honest about how she does it. It was fun to ask questions and peel back the layers of the magic behind her work. It made it feel like something I can create, with my own unique spin.

Words cannot begin to express how grateful & humbled I am to have gotten the chance to spend 2 days with some amazing photographers & one amazing mentor! Diane has always been someones work I’ve always admired & been inspired by. Entering the journey of a wedding photographer can be stressful & rewarding, knowing you have peers that are constantly pushing the level, is what will push me to grow as well. The value & knowledge I walked away with will not only allow me to grow as a photographer, but as a person.

Diane has been a photographer that I have admired for a long time. Always in awe on how she captures amazing moments with her clients. I followed her page and saw that she was offering a workshop and quickly responded with interest.

The first day at The Moment is Real Workshop I immediately felt comfortable with my fellow participants and now consider all of them friends. Diane is an energetic and extremely competent teacher who showed us identifying an opportunity or a moment and working the moment. She is down-to-earth who’s talented, funny and honest.

I highly recommend taking a workshop with Diane because she changed my approach to wedding photography. To anyone who’s interested in catching the moment and considering a workshop with Diane, I have no hesitation in saying go for it. Hopefully, it’ll be as decisive a moment for you as it was for me.”
