Attend the masterclasses of our professionals and immerse yourself in a creative environment with like-minded people. We’ll take care of the logistics, and you just do what you’re good at and create stunning pictures. Leave inspired with a memory card or two full of fresh and creative content.
Imagine that you…

- are booking the weddings you desire
- are visible to your ideal client, because of your strong SEO
- are traveling and shooting destination weddings
- work with a team of high-end suppliers
Let me help you!
In the last two years, I’ve organized more than 16 shoots which almost all got published. And let me tell you, organizing a great high-quality shoot, costs a lot of time and access to a great network.
At this photography workshop, we challenge and inspire you. I’ll take care of all the logistics so that you can be fully creative.
Behind The Scenes
Take a look behind the scenes during the photography workshop in Portugal.
What can you expect?
For this edition, we have some special moments for you in-store.
Styled shoot and editorial bridal look
A high-end styled shoot with a ceremony, table setting, beautiful couple, and all the details. Plus an editorial bridal look in a beautiful Millia London gown.
You are the director in these settings, use your imagination and creativity to set the scene.
Next to the styled shoot and editorial bridal look station, we’re also challenging you with movement shots.
Various settings where our models will act out choreographed scenes for you to capture. This challenges you in your journalistic skills, often needed at weddings.
But also, because we’ll create a ceremony with guests, a dinner table with food and people, you can shoot those candid shoots that resemble a real wedding which is precious for your portfolio.
Flat-lays are so important in creating a high-end and diverse gallery. Also, if you ever want to get your pictures published, flat-lays are the details that seal the deal! In the flat-lay playground, you’ll get to shoot the curated flat-lays by Mrs. Lake Weddings and take some time to create your own.

Frequently Asked Questions
But will everyone have the same pictures?
To be honest, yes and no! Of course, you will share the settings and the models but the rest is up to your creativity! In our last edition, one of the photographers took one of the models aside and captured a stunning shot that no one else saw. Also, put in the factor of different editing styles & composition, and the ever-changing social algorithms and posting schedules. The fact that your ideal client (not competitor or suppliers ;)) sees the same picture over and over is very slim actually.
Also, Chateau is a brand new wedding venue that opened in August 2021, so not many have had the privilege to shoot there.
I’m a starting or experienced photographer, is this workshop suitable for me?
This workshop is suitable for photographers and filmmakers of all abilities, new and experienced. We will not be covering camera basics.
What about COVID-19 or another world-impacting event?
If Covid-19 (or another world-impacting event) cancels the workshop taking place or if it cancels our flights, then I’ll move the entire workshop to the best-suited date. I do advise you to invest in travel and cancellation insurance.
How & when can I use the images?
You can use the images for your website, social channels, etc. but please credit the creatives and suppliers involved. I’ll supply you with all the information before the workshop starts
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me directly: email@example.com
All timings and structures are subject to change. Mrs. Lake weddings is not liable for failure to execute the workshop due to causes beyond their control. Specific details will be sent out nearer to the time to all confirmed attendees.
Sure, you can try to organize it yourself…
Creating the perfect environment
Let me be honest with you! I’ve realized that there’s so much strength with standing in your power spot. And with all the photographers I’ve worked with, too much logistic hassle and stress kills their creativity.
“I’ve shot all the standard shots, but I didn’t feel that I could be creative,” a photographer said to me once, whilst we’re on a shoot. Due to the rain, the schedule changed she had just a little window to take some good shots.
This motivated me as a planner to always create the perfect environment for the photographers I work with (on weddings and shoots) so that the result is fantastic.
What this means for you:
- No worrying about the schedule
- No worries about finding the perfect models
- Not trying to connect with all these high-end suppliers
- Not stressing about the timing
I have the network, planning skills, and team to facilitate stunning and inspiring settings for you to enjoy.
And yes, also I need to stand in my power spot. Look at the picture I took during our last edition of the workshop:
