Location: Toronto

What will you learn: Tips on how to create award winning photographs. You’ll learn lighting, posing, composition and how to create a genuine reaction from your clients! We will also focus on some business tips that have totally revolutionized our photography business.

What to expect: Although every workshop has different timing based on venues, models and so forth, we typically spend about 2 hours learning, then 4 hours shooting. Each photographer will get their own session with each model… This is a great learning technique and a valuable opportunity for you to build your portfolio.

What are they wearing? As always, we have several new designer dresses for the workshop, including a gorgeous 2009 Capri Marie, Maggie Sottero.

The Details: We have flowers provided by Pink Twig, with amazing details like Dom Perignon champagne, Tiffany & Co, and Birks accessories, along with designer shoes and gorgeous wedding cakes. All attendees receive a code to gain access to the Jerry Ghionis Ice Society at 20% off!

Models: As always, we will have several amazing models for you to photograph.

Investment: Our one day workshops are $499 plus tax.

When: We have not set a date for the next workshop, but if you would like to be in the know when the next one happens, fill in this form:

What Past Attendees Have To Say:

“The workshop was fabulous. It was an incredible setup that was so conducive to learning that you just could not have something fantastic to show for it. What really impressed me was Dave, Charlotte’s and Jamyz’s passion for what they do and how they created an environment that allowed me to reach and aspire to the next level. If you’re serious about wedding photography, you need to take one of their workshops. This will definitely not be my last workshop with Dave and Charlotte.”

~ David Lee

“This workshop was absolutely amazing! I’ve learned so much from the two of you & the other photographers. You made sure that everyone had time with you & that all our questions were answered. It was full of interesting & valuable information. You have exceeded all my expectations & I came away feeling so inspired. Thank you!”

~ Johanne

“I would like to thank you for the brilliant show which I took part last Sunday. I visited different seminars and even taught students myself, but have never seen such beautiful models and interiors. A special thanks to Johnny for his lesson, experience of which I have already took to my arms. Sincerely yours, Alexander Shtinov”

“For any amateur or professional photographer looking to improve their creativity, eye for detail, technical expertise Wicked Wedding Workshops with Dave and Charlotte are the way to go.  I have taken a number of photography courses over the past few years and I must say their practical approach is inspiring and effective, much more so then any other I have experience so far. During the morning portion of the workshop you learn about the business and key elements of successful photography with Dave Biesse and Charlotte Leonard.  The afternoon speeds by as you actively learn more about the key to great photography – lighting , envisioning the shot versus machine gun Kelly style working effectively with spectacular models as you follow the pros and then effectively shoot with each model for increments of ten minutes.  BTW Dave you really have a knack with the models and have taught me how to better communicate the shot.  Charlotte you really made all the details come together nicely.  Great choice in location as their were numerous background textures, a variety of interesting settings which were all part of the historical building, Berkley Church.  I would recommend the workshop to any photographer as the skills and principals apply beyond wedding. The take away – friendships, skills, creativity and damn good portfolio shots t’boot!  Thanks so much!”

Image Usage: Our models sign limited model releases – allowing you to use the images created in your portfolio only. They may not be used for commercial purposes or competitions. Please mention images as being created at our workshop by providing a link to

To ensure we are able to promote workshops like these in the future, we ask that you submit your best images to us on DVD. We will provide these to the venue and models and you will be credited for your work. While this is not compulsory, we strongly encourage it.

Equipment to bring: We shoot typically with mainly long lenses (70-200) and primes (50mm, 85mm etc) so if you have fast glass, bring it : ). We use reflectors and bounce flash when needed. Try to travel light (ie. one camera bag) to avoid clutter and decrease the risk of losing gear.

We look forward to having you at the workshop!
