The workshops are organised by myself, Amber Leach, founder of Liberty Pearl Photography, an award winning wedding photography business.

I love to travel around the world, so destination wedding photography combines two of my favourite hobbies!

I am a huge fan of the beautiful workshop venue St Moritz Hotel.

  • How to book destinati0n weddings at your favourite destinations
  • How to have a ‘just do it’ attitude
