We love playing with light! And when you know how to do it right, everything becomes possible. From turning a ugly background into an artistic element to creating awesome silhouettes, reflections, and bokeh shots with the wow factor, we can't wait to show you every trick we have for making your clients think your a lighting genius.

Meet Jos & Tree
Jos & Tree Woodsmith
Jos and Tree are international destination wedding and event photographers with over 15 years of experience educating other artists in their field. Known for their brilliant lighting solutions, out of the box compositions, and ability to capture cultures and landscapes, they have a friendly, approach style that allows them to provide wedding photography education to photographers at all levels.
Over the years they’ve been sought-after conference speakers and contest judges, and they’ve collaborated with the best of the best, winning multiple awards from Worlds Best Wedding Photos, ISPWP, WPPI, WPS, DVLOP, and the all-time top 100 Fearless Photographers award. Their photography has been published in Rangefinder Magazine, Huffington Post, Junebug Weddings, PDN, Style Me Pretty and many more. Sporting hats, goblets and one-of-a-kind style everywhere they go, their yin/yang relationship make for an exciting and upbeat dynamic duo.
With over 15 years of experience, Jos and Tree are facilitating powerful opportunities for photographers to EVOLVE their craft.
Their workshop retreat experiences are for wedding, event, and portrait photographers who want to dive in deep and take their professional photography skills and personal growth to the next level. We will give you everything we’ve learned over the past 15 years and invite you to examine everything you do (and don’t do).
Most importantly, there will be lots of hands-on challenges with quality time to practice skills and refine perspectives. We may be faster alone but we are stronger together! There will be round table discussions where everyone can discuss how they aren’t afraid to fail, share the best of the best insights/tips/tricks, and have conversations about life, weddings, work, marketing, business, and more.
We will share everything we know, create a supportive and positive training experience and challenge everyone to grow. We will be weaving self-care into this workshop taking it to the next level as a holistic retreat experience. We are honored to be ambassadors for photography brands that help take our craft to the next level. MagMod modifiers allow us to capture the stories we love to tell. They are the best light-shaping tools on the planet. Holdfast Gear equips photographers to tell better stories, Wedding Maps and SLR Lounge are some of the best photography trainers in the world with so much education available on their platform. Fundy Software helps us deliver exquisite product designs to our couples in record time.
Raves from Students
“I not only gained a goodie bag of technical skills, but also a deeper connection to my craft. Through their combined wisdom, Tree’s gentle passion, and Jos’ masterful storytelling, I left this workshop refreshed, reinvigorated, and ready to take my business to the next level!”
“We learned so much! We absolutely love this community of photographers. The hands-on challenges we had gave us so much confidence. And the off-camera flash challenges were a game-changer!”
Mistry and Scott Williams
“I highly recommend Jos and Tree if you want to take your skills to the next level. They are totally committed to the learning process and it shows in everything they do.”
"I’ve channeled their ideas and energy into several of my own weddings since that day and it’s had a huge impact on my work. I’m so lucky and stoked to have found myself in a photography community with these two and I’m fired up for more collaborative evolution with Tree and Jos in the coming years.”
