EDUCATION BEYOND INSPIRATION

We didn’t just want to create another wedding photography conference. We wanted to craft a unique experience and vibe in the UK for wedding photographers which is the perfect mix of inspiration, education, socialising and epic partying. We threw the first NineDots Gathering in November 2015 and people loved it! Eight years later, and for the first time, we are taking the NineDots Community on the road North for Gathering number 8! Making this year’s event bigger, better and more affordable and accessible for wedding photographers than ever before!

The NineDots Gathering has the perfect blend of inspiring keynote presentations on our main-stage, practical teaching and master-classes, expert business advice, the latest and greatest products on offer from our exhibiting sponsors, and plenty of social time to hang out, relax and connect with other wedding photographers from around the world.

Over two days, you’ll make friends for life, connect with like-minded photographers from around the world, share incredible times together and leave inspired, skilled-up and ready to take your photography and business to the next level as part of the NineDots community!

We’d love you to join us at NineDots Gathering 2023, grab your ticket now!

Presenters

We are super excited to be welcoming some of the most talented photographers and best wedding photography educators in the world to inspire and share their knowledge at the 2023 NineDots Gathering.  The Gathering is the ultimate mixture of keynote presentations on the MainStage, practical mini-masterclasses, live shoot demonstrations, business sessions, food, drink, and community. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to hang out, drink with and ask questions to all our presenters – and beat them at ping-pong!! There’s no green room at the NineDots Gathering!

Helen Williams

I’m a super energetic, disco dancing, tea drinking, doggy loving (calm your dirty mind – i’m referring to the animals), pizza munching, photo bombing, car singing, prosecco guzzling, welsh and proud, limbo champion, cartwheeling extraordinaire who happens to spend my days taking pretty pictures!

Jason Vinson

Jason Vinson is a husband, father, and wedding and documentary photographer, based out of Northwest Arkansas. He has a passion for creatively documenting real moments, as well as taking epic and unique portraits. He has been ranked as the #1 Fearless Photographer in North America and Top 3 in the World for 2021.

Jesse & Moira La Plante

Jesse and Moira La Plante are Colorado-based photographers who have been shooting weddings since 2008. They first met in the Bahamas on spring break when Jesse (allegedly) offered to buy Moira a drink at an all-inclusive resort. Shortly after that fateful trip, the pair moved to Colorado, started their wedding photography business and never looked back.

Fabio Mirulla

Let me tell you about me through what I love to do. I've been doing this job since 2005, trying to let my guide be experimentation and the desire of creating every time something peculiar and unique.

Ami Robertson

I am deeply passionate about what I do and I love to help others find their own success in this industry. I have individually and group mentored over 150 other photographers in the past 18 months and helped them launch and grow their own brand photography businesses.

Angela Ward Brown

I have spent the last 15 years making a variety of mistakes through inattention and self-doubt, before kicking my own arse into building a lasting photography business that suits me, meets my needs, and makes me happy. I am passionate about helping people grow ethical businesses that truly serve them, while delivering an excellent client experience and creating beautiful imagery. None of this need be done in the same way - our hearts and minds are unique, why shouldn’t our businesses be the same?

Social & After Party

At the NineDots Gathering along with learning from some of the world’s best wedding photographers, we wholeheartedly believe that our Gathering is more than just eduction, that an integral part is the community. We have build a very supportive community over the years and with that in mind in between all the talks we’ve allowed for plenty of social and networking time plus we’ve kept our infamous ping pong tournament where new friendships are also formed plus our legendary after party.

With our heads and hearts full to the brim of inspiration we’ll finish off the Gathering in true NineDots style with an after party of epic proportions. All previous Gathering after-parties have been off the scale (just check out the previous highlights) and we’re expecting more of the same in 2023 at a BRAND NEW PARTY VENUE!

We see the Gathering as a holistic event that becomes a vital part of your photography calendar and something beyond epic to look forward to at the end of a busy wedding season, the after party is a celebration of the event, the year we’ve all had, the strength of the NineDots community and this awesome job we all get to do!

“These words are the honest truth, no hyperbole or exaggeration; go to the next 9D Gathering. Do it. It was the most fun and inspirational photography event I’ve been to. It had everything; inspirational speakers, fantastic attitudes and awesome attendees (and one of the best parties I’ve been to in my entire life). Seriously. Do it.”

Last year we were asked by some of our industry friends to photograph something just a little bit different in the form of the inaugural Nine Dots Gathering in London. Having never attended anything like this before we were curious to see how we would find it and, of course, we were looking forward to the challenge of capturing the event.
