My name is Rob Dight and in 2013 I went full time shooting weddings. Encouraging connection in wedding portraits wasn’t easy. Sometimes the groom was stiff like a robot, the shoots were stressful, or the couples were embarrassed and I felt awkward.
Some of my shoots turned out great and in others I felt the lack of connection stopped me from producing my best work.
I set out to understand how I could get better and more consistent results.
Connection and providing an incredible experience during the shoot was really important to me. With that in mind over the last six years I’ve tested and refined a number of techniques.
Here’s what I learned:
I've created easy to implement processes that will enable you to create epic connection in your wedding portraits and I’ve teamed up with Engage Live and ShootProof to share those with you at an affordable price in my Connection in Wedding Portraits Course!
Have you experienced any of these issues?
"Shoots are stressfull"
As you’re concentrating on getting your camera settings right, you’re not talking to the couple and they’re not getting friendly vibes. I share how I overcame the stress of shoots through a simple change in how I shoot.
"My groom is like a robot"
Even if a couple is stiff during the shoot, they still want amazing photographs. Couples aren’t against you. It’s up to you to give them the tools to flourish in front of your camera and I share in the course how to do just that.
"They were embarrassed"
If the couple’s embarrassed it can be awkward for you, it effects your performance, you feel under pressure and stressed. I break down my process for taking the embarressment out of your portrait shoot.

"The Connection in Wedding Portraits course was full of great tips and advice which is put across really well. I loved the images, examples and the live shoot in particular. Rob explained his approach in a straightforward way which makes total sense. The techniques will be incredibly powerful in helping me to achieve images with emotion."

The course was broken up into a few different areas so I could jump right to the content I wanted to watch. Being able to mark lessons as complete meant I could come back and watch at my convenience."

Join one of the photography industry’s most innovative and exciting photographers, the multi-award-winning Richard P. Walton, for this three day class on experimental wedding and portraiture.
Follow Walton as he photographs two live shoots – one edgy and urban, involving one female model, the other involving a bride and groom in a rural setting – which he sets up, shoots and processes according to his own inimitable style.
This class will also involve an audience, who will offer up their images for critique. Walton spends time editing images in Photoshop, revealing his tried and tested techniques for making the usual unusual, the ordinary extraordinary.
Wedding photographer, Jay Doherty, has a unique approach to work, one informed by a laid back, philosophical outlook on life.
Having spent many years living in sun kissed California, developing an eye for an image by photographing fellow skateboarders and surfers, Jay returned home to Donegal to start a family and reconnect with the rugged coast. He has since established himself as one of Ireland’s foremost wedding and portrait photographers, a maverick among many, who prides himself on gaining new clients primarily through word-of-mouth.
In this transformative two-hour class, Jay talks about the importance of developing a healthy mind and body to facilitate a healthy, happy business.
Jay’s work-life routine involves eating healthy, jogging in the mornings and spending time talking with clients, rather than endlessly posing them, to achieve a calm atmosphere on the biggest day of their lives.
