Capture Love

The Day Retreat

‘What if I fall?

But darling, what if you fly?’

Being a self employed wedding photographer can be a lonely business right?! It’s a game of two halves really isn’t it?

On the one hand we have our ambition and our love for what we do driving us forward, pushing us to succeed. On the other hand, we have mum guilt, imposter syndrome, and all sorts of internal struggles holding us back. I’ve designed aren’t just about how we can drive your business forward. They’re also about recognising and removing the roadblocks we put in our own way. 

I want to help you build a business that aligns with your values, and lets you be successful doing what you love without sacrificing other aspects of your life. After all, we don’t go to work for ourselves only to become slaves to our business. I want to help you build a business that works for you, not the other way around. And if you’re just getting started in the industry, I want you to start as you mean to go on.

If you told me three years ago I’d be where I am now, I’d never have believed you. I run a successful business, I get to pick my kids up from school every day, and spend almost every Sunday with my family. And I’m not saying that to brag, or to pretend in any way that I’ve got it all together. Because I really don’t! But I understand the challenges of finding a healthy balance, and I want to help you navigate your way through. 

A Day Retreat

Having hosted multiple workshops now, I recognise that it’s not always feasible to go away for a few days. But I believe the mindset and business tools we teach at Capture Love are so beneficial to help you achieve your goals.

Not a formula

I believe in values-based business rather than formulas. So this isn’t a ‘here’s how I work, go copy’ cookie-cut approach. Because your values will be different to mine, so what works well for me might not work for you.

Instead, together as a small group, we can go through the various elements of business so you walk out with a plan for your ‘success’ as defined by you.

The client journey

By using the client journey as our base, we work through all of the elements of running a successful wedding photography business. From attracting to clients right through to what happens after you have exceeded all of their expectations. From marketing to pricing to workflow. It will be covered during our time together, and nothing is off the table.


Good, as you should!

No. There will be no shoot. This is an entirely theory based day.

It will be held at my home in Portrush so a really intimate setting. We will be getting cosy and so there are only 6 spaces available. We will have lunch midway through the day.

It is 18th of April 2024 from 10am to 4pm.

Early bird tickets are £295.

‘Lauren has a fantastic way of helping her clients to believe in themselves. She helps to silence the nagging doubt that I think many of us suffer from. Lauren also inspired me to believe in myself and move forward in my business.’

‘Lauren was so friendly and helpful. I found myself constantly saying “oh that’s so clever!”. But even without all the really helpful business advice, it was great even just to chat with a fellow photographer about life in the wedding industry! I would definitely recommend LIT to anybody wishing to further their photography career.’
