The best Wedding Photography Workshops in 2021!

Updated on

Finding the right wedding photography workshop can be hard sometimes. New events are popping up everywhere, and more and more photographers feel the need to organize the next best thing.

This is the reason why many photographers that are starting out do not know which wedding workshop is actually worth attending. As a result of that, we created this small list that will hopefully help you make the right choice!

2021 Workshops

RUMBO Workshop

The best Wedding Photography Workshops in 2021!

The RUMBO journey started at the end of 2018 by three photographers who saw a way to connect talent from one part of the world to the other. It all began on a trip to Iceland where we as colleagues and friends casually spoke about our experiences as photographers in the United States and in Europe and we quickly realized each side had incredible strengths to share. At that moment we decided to start building the bridge to connect both worlds.

Ultimately RUMBO has evolved to become more than just a yearly workshop connecting speakers, students, and vendors. RUMBO has become part of our journey as creatives. A way to revitalize our craft and find new paths and goals for our talent. A push to truly and honestly learn about our craft and our ourselves in the process.

When is it?: November 19th – November 21st
Where is it?: Chinatown, Manhattan, New York, USA
Who are the speakers?: Chuy Rodriguez, Kelly Balch, Paola Franqui, Alvaro Sancha, David Griso, Jose Melgarejo

2019 Workshops

The Wolves Workshop

Located on the remote island of La Graciosa in the heart of the Atlantic ocean, the Wolves Workshop is our most recommended workshop. Running its 5th edition this year, the Wolves established the position of one of the best wedding photography workshops out there.

The beauty of the Wolves workshop is the combination of education & live shoots within the magic of La Graciosa. The second you step foot onto the island after a spectacular boat ride, you will soon realize what it is all about.

In fact, no other workshop builds the feeling of a community like the Wolves does. You live together with like-minded creatives right at the beach, attend the classes, grab food together, enjoy the island and party every evening, while you dance around the bonfire bare feet.

If there is one workshop you pursue of attending this year, pack your bags and get ready for an adventure at the Wolves Workshop.

When is it?: November 17th – November 23rd
Where is it?: La Graciosa, Spain
Who are the speakers?: James Frost, Froydis Geithus, Jane Iskra, The Ferros, Deyvis Malta, Lukas Piatek, Laura Wood, Sara Lincoln, Javier Abad, Jacob Loafman, Pablo Beglez, Junebug Weddings

SNAP Photography Festival

It started with a spark of inspiration and the idea that a week away from our day to day lives could create a unique learning experience.  SNAP built a community, in the wilds of the UK countryside, and an experience that the attendees would never forget.

SNAP is the annual gathering of an incredible community.  Featuring educational content, business advice, inspiring keynote talks, practical shoot demonstrations and a whole notebook full of ideas to immediately propel your business forward.

You can also expect starry skies, new friends, swimming, delicious food, chats late into the night and our epic closing party.  Make a friend.  Share a story.  Shoot for yourself, and it feels magical. You thoroughly unwind before the start of a busy season.  Something clicks into place that wasn’t there before.

In other words, SNAP is not a workshop.  It is not a camping trip and not a  photography conference.  SNAP is the chance to be a part of something bigger than the sum of its parts.

When is it?: April 29th – May 3rd
Where is it?: Somerset, UK
Who are the speakers?: Dan O’Day, Catalina Jean, Rafal Bojar, Polly Rusyn and many more! You can see the complete line up here – SNAP Speakers 2019

The best Wedding Photography Workshops in 2021!


Feckin Workshop

The Feckin workshop was created by Sean and Kate with two intentions; Knowledge and Craic.

Sean and Kate wanted to provide a photography and film workshop for folks in the wedding industry that wasn’t just a fluff and a sales pitch for the speakers.  That wasn’t just about shooting a pretty portfolio. Sean and Kate wanted to show that if you run an efficient business that you can make a profit, have a healthy work-life balance an still have time to be personally creative. They wanted to provide core skills like implementing business software systems, knowing the importance of in-person sales and workflow management. They also wanted to impress that if you took care of yourself mentally that your business/life would flourish.

The heart of this workshop though is in its connection and bonds made with others, ourselves and the land. The connections made at previous editions have always been the most rewarding part of this wedding photography workshop.

When is it?: October 13th – October 19th
Where is it?: Dingle Peninsula, Ireland
Who are the speakers?: Dylan M Howell, Belle Art Photography, Story of Eve, Rafal Bojar, Junebug Weddings, Johnny Shanahan, Superpreneurs
