The Mrs. Lake Photography Workshop
Everything you need to get in your creative vibe, shoot your best content, and book the clients you desire.
Join us for a few days in Marrakech for the Mrs. Lake Photography workshop. Let us challenge and inspire you to shoot stunning content.
Last June I visited Marrakech for the first time and immediately fell in love. It’s a vibrant and colorful city full of sounds, smells, and noises. But also a city full of meaningful traditions, beauty rituals, and behind the big Riad doors: colorful opulent oases. I knew I wanted to return to this wonderful place, and I’m looking forward to bringing you with me in April.
The theme of this edition is Vibrant Oasis. We’ll focus on two couples and tell their complete love story through beautiful settings. Also, you will be treated to various high-end editorial looks and pretty details. Connect, and get inspired and challenged during the masterclasses and mastermind sessions. We’ll take care of all the logistics and promise that you will go home with a memory card or two with fresh and creative content.
My promise to you is this:
- Stunning styling, scenery, and settings
- Small groups: there is space for a maximum of 12 attendees
- Always a positive and creative vibe
- Luxury and comfortable stay – yes to treating yourself!
- Professional and diverse couples
- Settings that encourage you to shoot both high-end editorial and commercial material
- Working with the best wedding vendors
This workshop is for you if:
- You aren’t booking the clients you desire
- You’re shooting the standard pictures and you’re longing for some creativity
- When you organize or participate in a shoot, you don’t get the results you’ve hoped for
- Your SEO needs optimization, your ideal client can’t find you on Google
- You’d like to attract and book more high-end clients
- Your portfolio doesn’t match your talent
- You don’t have enough inspiring content
Imagine that you…
- have a content bank full of inspiring images that attract your ideal customers
- 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!
As a seasoned luxury wedding planner, I know the importance of curating a quality portfolio and allowing yourself to step out of the box and try something new.
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.

– Evelien Geerinckx Photography
“This has given my portfolio such a boost, am still in love with the photos I took. “
“I had the opportunity to work with Enyo for a photography workshop she organized in Portugal. From the first contact, it felt so good, familiar, and full of energy!
Enyo put on an amazing workshop, bringing together the nicest models, vendors, and photographers. The week was super well organized, with beautiful settings to take pictures.
This has given my portfolio such a boost, am still in love with the photos I took. Thanks, Enyo!”
– Joyce Afua Fotografie
“It has been an incredible experience”
I worked with Enyo in one of her workshops, it was a real honor. She is a very nice person, kind, and concerned that everything is fine.
Her workshops are based on fashion concepts, and full of details and inspiration.
If you attend one of them you come back with your cards full of good pictures and a happy heart.
It has been an incredible experience, thank you so much Enyo!
– Susana Rios Photography
“The size of the group was good. Very happy.”
“I loved the whole experience. Enyo is awesome!! And I loved the group. I miss them. Croatia was lovely. But all things together made it (almost) perfect).”
– Wild Daisies Photography
“Nice variety of shoots, enough time for all the settings, and I am very happy with the smaller groups.”
“It was exactly as I had hoped: everyone was super nice and cozy, the location was beautiful, the accommodation was very nice and I could shoot beautiful portfolio work. Thank you so much!”

“The fact that I am already trying to arrange time off for the next edition says it all I think -haha-.”
“Working with Enyo is a joy. Her sparkling personality, big smile, and fine presence make the already beautifully styled wedding even more beautiful. With her eye for detail, out-of-the-box thinking, skill, and a great network, she makes every wedding day a wonderful creation. When the planning turns out differently, Enyo is in control. Enyo is a breath of fresh air in “wedding planner land” and shows that diversity is wonderful.”

“It was exactly what I was looking for to take my work to a new level”
“How glad I am that I went along! When I saw the mood boards for the photoshoots I hardly hesitated for a moment. I have had the pleasure of working with Enyo once before during a shoot. She knew exactly what needed to be done, this gave me incredible peace and this also gave me a lot of confidence in the workshop.
During the workshop in Portugal, I had the opportunity to work with all the high-end suppliers who all made beautiful work! Really super cool how that all came together.
The super-diverse location, couples, and concepts allowed me to create incredible new portfolio material that I could not have dreamed of beforehand. It was really bizarre to see what all could be photographed in 2 days.
I would definitely go along with another workshop, because this has given me so much new material, and it was also just an incredibly fun time.”
– Jiwa Stories
“Enyo is really good and does everything without stressing”
“We had a very nice time working with Enyo. As a videographer, it is sometimes difficult to keep an eye on the time and planning, because you focus on what happens in front of your lens and how you want to capture this creatively.
It is very nice to have a wedding planner next to you who keeps an eye on the planning and directs the whole team. Enyo is really good at this, and does it without stressing in a very nice way!
In addition, Enyo as a person is very nice and enthusiastic, so would only recommend her!”
– Timo & Kay Films
Frequently Asked Questions
Marrakech is a busy city, will you arrange security for us?
Yes! We take your safety (and the safety of your gear) seriously. There will be security present that will keep an eye on us.
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.
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.
I’m a videographer, is this workshop suitable for me?
Definitely yes! We will create a custom itinerary for you so that you’ll have enough room to capture the shots and audio you need.
I’m a wedding planner/stylist, is this workshop suitable for me?
Yes! I have room for a maximum of three stylists to join and work alongside me during this workshop. There will be room for a masterclass and to ask me all of your planning & styling-related questions. Send me an e-mail for more info: email@example.com
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 in 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 were 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.
