Advanced Diploma in Wedding Photography (Online Photography Course)

What you'll learn

The Advanced Diploma in Wedding Photography online photography course has the same initial modules as the Diploma in Wedding Photography but also includes a very in-depth and bespoke feedback section where you can submit your photos and portfolio for expert advice.

One of our guiding principals here at IOP is in bespoke coaching – this is no ordinary online course. Only in constructive criticism can you expect to improve your photography and we provide just that. We are the only photography course out there to provide so much bespoke coaching, with five dedicated assignments marked by renowned photography journalist, Tim McCann.

On completion, we will provide you with a Diploma in Wedding Photography certificate which states that you have reached the IOP required standard to practice as a professional wedding photographer.

All IOP Wedding diplomas include lifetime membership to IOPWP (Institute of Photography Wedding Photographers Association)

Don’t just take our word for it, see what a student has to say:

“I highly recommend the Institute of Photography courses, I’ve taken various courses, an am in the final stages of the Advanced Diploma in Wedding Photography. The courses are well designed, crafted and lead you through all that you would need to learn. The tutor feedback is amazing for the ADWP – not just a few words – my tutor has shown interest in my submissions, where I can improve and pointing out the good too. All courses are easy to complete online and at a speed you choose. Thank you to the IOP for giving me so much courage to pursue my career.” Nikki Lewis 13 May 2015
