‘I will always remember my first Fine Art Wedding Photography workshop. You created such a wonderful space for learning and discussion with likeminded people, which I honestly wasn’t expecting at all!
Thank you so so much for all your hard work and time for creating such a special two days, for organising such suitable and experienced talkers and for generally just being pretty awesome and approachable.
Best decision and investment I have made for myself and my business to date!’
Flo Brookes Photography

Just over a month ago I hosted the first edition of The Nordic Way; A Fine Art Wedding Photography Workshop.

I wanted to create a warm and welcoming environment in which attendees could learn, feel inspired and leave with a new set of friends and champions within the industry. I wanted people to leave with a renewed sense of confidence and knowing what they had to do to take their business to the next level.

I wanted to share my experiences so far within the industry, things I wish people had told me when I first started…This was to be more than just another fine art wedding photography workshop…

Day 1 was a day of classroom master-classes by Faye Cornhill, a business coach talking to us about pricing for success within the fine art wedding photography world.
Maddy Jones educated us all about the power of SEO and Louise Perry gave us a charismatic talk on how to work with Wedding planners to improve our businesses.
I spent the afternoon going through all things marketing, branding, networking and social media…

The second day was a styled shoot which myself and an incredible team of creatives had put together to inspire the attendees and give them the chance to photograph for their portfolios

This styled editorial was centred around the Danish concept of ‘Hygge’… pronounced ‘hoogah’…a profound yet subtle sense of contentedness and cosiness infused into every day life.
The story of our bride and groom starts with them waking up slowing together on the day of their wedding…surrounded by the antique family heirlooms of the bride to be’s family…our bride and groom would get ready for their intimate and personal family wedding at their family home in the heart of London’s Holland Park. We wanted to use hints of autumnal colours in our colour palette to reflect the changing of the seasons and the cosiness of short days, longer nights, candles and artisan coffee in bed.

The vision was of a down to earth and paired back Nordic chic feel mixed with the elegance of a fine art aesthetic and a hint of french romanticism.

If you want to be kept up to date on when the next edition will be taking place make sure you drop me an email on info@juliemichaelsen.com !

The lavender fields, the hazy sunsets and olive groves…the quintessential Provence destination wedding…be still my beating heart!
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to attend a Provence destination wedding workshop hosted by the magnificent French photographer Greg Finck, and what an experience it was!

During the first shoot, we were treated to an incredibly original and well executed styled shoot created by Sofia from Branco Prata. The shoot told the story of a young Alice in Wonderland and her bridal picnic in the forest which even featured a rabbit! We were asked to insert ourselves into the story of a petulant Alice and ensure we captured all the details and the mood of our bride / Alice.

I absolutely loved that this talented team thought outside the box and didn’t opt for the obvious leather field Provence destination wedding which inevitably springs to mind…

If you want to see more Provence Destination Wedding inspiration head over HERE to revel in the beauty of the valensole area of Air en Provence!

Oh and if you like this shoot then hold on to your hats because the second inspiration shoot will quite simply blow your socks off! Coming to you next Friday!

Huge thanks to this brilliant creative team:

As a fine art wedding Photographer I see my fair share of beautiful stationary, flowers and tablescapes but you know when you have found ‘kindred spirit’ clients after having sent them a handwritten thank you note on your own branded paper (300gsm since you ask) with gold foil branding (what else?) that said clients then reply with a customised crest letter headed paper with beautiful handwritten words thanking you for your thank you, (using what looked to be an old fashioned quill and ink) complete with a wax seal on the back!

I mean, does it get any better?!

These two wonderful individuals were married at Voewood House in Norfolk on a spring day earlier this year…their style, their friends, their family and most importantly their hearts and connection to each other had a profound effect on me.

It was my first same sex marriage and I was nervous. Not because I would be doing anything differently really just that I really wanted to do a good job and make sure they felt comfortable. As you know, I’m a Fine Art Wedding photographer so I really care about how details and people are portrayed I also REALLY care about how they feel when I’m photographing them so I invest a lot of time and energy into making sure my clients are comfortable.

Luckily Jamie and Christian were perfection personified and as they said they vows and the officiant pronounced them married, I saw a mother fight back tears of joy and pride…I myself had a camera infront of my face so fought to blink back tears and keep the moment in focus in camera!

Later in the day I laughed out loud with the guests when the best men told raucous stories and gasp-worthy innuendos, really there is nothing like a well timed and delivered punchline!

I also gulped down tears when I heard one of the Fathers of the groom tell of his sons struggles as a teenager….feeling that pinch of dismay in the world…
Having said that I later cried with laughter with the guests as that same father finished his speech with a reference… he said he couldn’t understand why some people had an issue with same sex marriages, because he and his wife had been having the same sex during their entire marriage and he really liked it! Hilarious!

This day was an emotional rollercoaster and I was only the photographer!

I hope you enjoy this wedding and if you’re getting married in the UK and would like to see more of my fine art wedding photography please do visit HERE to see more!

Beautiful Cotswolds Wedding Photography anyone?!

Getting married in the UK? I’d argue that the Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful places in England to get married in! I set about creating this styled shoot because the Cotswolds has captured my heart and I’d love to do more Weddings in the glorious Cotswolds.

Our vision for this inspiration editorial came from the courtship between two cultures and heritages. A young Californian artist who marries into English aristocracy, at his family’s country manor in the Cotswolds. We wanted to marry the history of the old English countryside with the modern and glamorous free-spirited bride, to cater for the artisanal, romantic bride…The bride who strives embrace life as an adventure, will dance in the rain and with regards to her wedding; wants to bring nature indoors for a fresh and all sensorial experience at her wedding.

We wanted to give a nod to the pantone colour of the year whilst retaining a wild and imperfect theme through the floral design but also by contradicting the glamour of the blush wedding dress with the fresh flowers in the brides’ hair for their traditional church ceremony. I hope you enjoy!

As a Fine Art Wedding Photographer I am lucky enough to photograph some of the most beautiful weddings in the world…but sometimes I crave to shoot just for shootings sake where there is no pressure, just a collaborative creative spirit. And so this editorial was born…created for the sake of creating…

“Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.”
― Lao Tzu

There is nothing more beautiful that the dawn of a new season…Spring, an old friend, a welcome guest should always be celebrated.
I wanted to put together a small team of British artisans to create because Spring was upon us and in my desire to embrace simplicity and nature we gathered to curate a bridal inspiration concept which heralded glorious nature, modernity with a hint of romanticism as well as femininity and its simple allure.

“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Being Danish, candlelight has always been an intrinsic presence in my life since birth, we celebrate with candle light, the everyday and the special days alike, the cosiness and warmth emitted often goes hand in hand with the Danish concept of Hygge. The idea that everyday actions and plans can be made just a little more special by intentionally embracing cosiness. Lighting the fire place, using the ‘good china’, opening that good bottle of wine, being present and engaging with the present instead of always looking to the future or lamenting the past.
A Fine Art Wedding Photographer is subject to so much beauty and detail and loves it but sometimes simplicity is what the heart craves and the heart wants what the heart wants!

Hidden in the heart of London – lies a piece of historical Romance.

Home House, an elegant venue where celebrations and intimate moments have been captured since 1773.
The original owner, Elizabeth Countess of Home, designed it to be a place of festivities and joy, a playground for Dukes and Earls. She welcomed numerous guests, threw extravagant hedonistic banquets and had guest rooms prepared for her lovers…
The sumptuous neo-classic style and the beautiful frescos in the parlour room, the architectural details in the ceilings – you feel like you are walking within a painting itself, transported in time.

Our editorial celebrates the opulent, the intensity and the romance of the renaissance era seen here through the eyes of a 2017 London bride and groom. We were inspired by the contradictions of an old love in a young couple, the ancient venue in a modern city, and most of all by a piece of history where time stands still in a world of fast paced modernity.

From a distance we are witnesses to this love which has evolved through time and distance as our bride and groom prepare for the celebration of their union. A day full of goosebumps yet there is a calmness in the air. As she prepares for the ceremony, she is surrounded not by bridesmaids but by the heirlooms from her grandmother’s dressing table, inspiring nostalgia and heartache both prominent in her soul.

A modern still-life fresco; the table setting adorned not just with flowers but with fruits and vegetables echoing the symbolic paintings of banquets and the harvest by Zucchi, the husband of artist Angelica Kauffman. We purposefully mixed opulence and artisanal influences by using handmade pottery for the tablescape; rustic and wild, playful textures and elegant calligraphy.
A painting of man-made and natural objects, cut flowers, fruit, vegetable, wine, candles, – A celebration of life – and their love.

I hope you enjoy this Fine Art London Wedding Photography Inspiration, it was a labour of passion and love and we are thrilled to be featured on RUFFLED!

The Nordic Way, 19th-20th September 2017, London.
A Fine Art Wedding Photography Workshop with a difference…

When I first joined the wedding industry as a wedding photographer, my first port of call was to attend as many wedding photography workshops as possible. I was starting from scratch and I knew next to nothing about websites, running a business, SEO, how to get clients or pricing my services. One photography workshop experience which has stuck in my mind to this day, is one of the main reason I wanted to launch The Nordic Way…

I arrived at one particular workshop, I was nervous and I felt seriously out of place. I remember entering the workshop location and despite my faux confidence kicking in by introducing myself to other attendees and the speakers, I found myself somehow marginalised to the corner of the kitchen as everyone continued their conversations. I stood there for what seemed like ages feeling more and more out of place and effectively ignored.
I remember thinking even then, one day I’m going to run a Fine Art Wedding Photography workshop and I am going to greet and welcome every single person and make them feel welcome, relaxed and confident.

People may not remember exactly what you did or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel
– Maya Angelou.

‘The Nordic Way’ Fine Art Wedding Photography Workshop was born out of my desire to create a workshop for newer wedding photographers who have either just started their business within the Fine Art Wedding style or would like to transition over.
I want to give something back to this is industry which I love, help new wedding photographers find their feet and do so using Danish Hygge as my inspiration!

Hygge (pronounced ‘Hoogah’)
-A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish Culture)

I want to give that to my workshop attendees I want them to feel supported and encouraged and a part of something. A movement to raise your game and be better in a crowded market place, a community and a support network!

So if you’re reading this and you’re feeling a mixture of the below:

– I don’t know where to start…
– SEO – I haven’t got a clue
– My weddings don’t look like the ones on the wedding blogs / magazines
– I’m getting no enquiries
– I feel alone and frustrated
– I don’t know who to ask for help
– No one comments on my instagram posts
– I honestly haven’t got a clue where I should be pricing myself.

Then I urge you to join us at The Nordic Way! I feel so very strongly that attendees will walk away from this workshop feeling inspired and armed with right tools to propel their business forward, so if you’re ready to take control of your business and your future, come join us, I guarantee you won’t regret it!

AND if you book in the month of JUNE you’ll qualify for the early bird discount of £100!

Leaving the security of a lucrative job with structured career prospects to become a fine art wedding photographer in London may seem like a crazy move, but for me it was the start of a new phase of professional fulfilment I couldn’t have dreamed of.
It was 2013. It feels like a lifetime ago, and yet I remember it vividly.

I was single, and not in a Sex and the City partying every night kind of way, unhappily so. Four of my closest girl friends were getting married and I was a bridesmaid four times in one year. Although I was thrilled for my girls, I was also desperately lonely.
All my time was spent working in my finance job in Mayfair, earning more money than I had thought possible, and living what seemed to be a very successful life. I was doing a fantastic job of proving to everyone that I could do ‘it’.

And yet, for all the success on the surface, I was seeing a therapist every week, unable to shake the unhappiness.

I started to realise that it had everything to do with my work. The job which had originally challenged and intrigued me had turned me into someone I didn’t recognise and wasn’t proud of. I could have given you the spiel of why my work was important but the words were hollow because I didn’t truly believe them.
Pretending to be someone I wasn’t every single day, while competing in that environment, hardened me and I found myself with only one real friend in the office. As a social person blessed with a lot of friends outside of work, I knew something wasn’t quite right.

Something had to give and I remember the seemingly throwaway comment that changed everything.

‘You seem really happy when you talk about your photography.’
It was the ultimate epiphany moment…

Something I had cultivated for myself for such a long time could actually become my job.
And just like that, I said goodbye to the finance industry and threw myself into the complete unknown of launching a wedding photography business.
I was naive and foolish and jumped in with two feet without looking, but I was fuelled by the hope and potential of my pursuit to do something which I felt proud of.

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us.’
– A Tale of Two Cities, William Shakespeare

When you reach that breaking point in your life, sometimes you just have to take that leap for change to happen. Do I wish I’d known a bit more about self-employment, the fine art wedding industry, running your own business? Probably. But no matter how trapped you might feel in your current career, I can honestly say that breaking away and pursuing happiness isn’t something you’ll ever regret.
I know I don’t.

As a fine art destination wedding photographer I consider it my priority to constantly be learning. And seeing as I am shooting more and more destination weddings I decided to travel to Guadalajara in Mexico to attend what is widely considered to be one of the best fine art destination wedding photography workshops in the world taught by Jose Villa, a veteran film photographer who has and continues to take the wedding industry by storm…

I was lucky enough be a part of this week and meet some incredibly talented photographers and learn from Jose and his team of wedding industry leaders who I’ve followed on social media for ages! Getting to meet them and shoot their work was a dream!
I’ll be adding film photography to my workflow going forward and can’t wait to share more with you! Film photography is so elegant, so flattering to skin tones and has a real nostalgic feel to the end photos.

So if you’re getting married abroad and want to make sure you’re photographer speaks your language and is able to make you comfortable don’t hesitate to get in touch here, I love to travel and have quit e a few destination weddings booked for this year. I don’t charge extra to travel (I just ask that my travel expenses are covered). If you weren’t already convinced on why having a destination wedding was a good idea, the guaranteed sunshine is one huge one for starters!
