TEACH … SUPPORT…
I’m Nicola Dawson. I empower, support and teach new and aspiring wedding photographers to confidently start their businesses in the wedding industry to achieve creative fulfillment and worklife freedom.
The dream of calling yourself a wedding photographer feels out of reach. Photography ignites and excites you but it is relegated to a side hustle and you don’t know where to start.
You long to leave the soul destroying day job, be your own boss, fulfill your creativity and make a living doing what you love.
I was in exactly this place 4 years ago when the decision to photograph my first wedding changed my life. From that day I created and grew my wedding photography business to the point where I could leave my 16 year career in policing in less than two years. I now have a flourishing wedding photography business, the work life balance and freedom I’ve always wanted doing a job that I adore.
You can 100% achieve this too and I want to help you on your way

The support Nicola has given me in the last 12 months has had a massive impact on my business and I would recommend her to ANYONE. If you have the chance to work with Nicola in the wedding industry you would be so lucky. Since then I have shot 4 weddings and have already been booked to capture another 8.
