Workshop Feedback


I had the privilege to attend one of Stella Uys’s wedding workshops! This was definitely one of the best decisions that I made for myself and my business. Since the workshop I applied a few changes and added aspects to my business and I could see my business grow within days. During the workshop, we had the opportunity to see Stella in action. It really helps to see and do practical work after she had spoken about it during the theoretical part of the workshop. Being around so much creatives and learning together ads to the great experience. – Charl van der Merwe Photography

As a young boy – one dreams of becoming famous, do big things, and meet superheroes… I still feel young, but as an older version of me, I still want to meet superheroes and I did when I met Stella Uys – What a superhero she is! In my 4 years of being a photographer I could feel how my photography went to a whole new level after attending Stella’s workshop. The three day workshop was super professional yet so much fun. Stella really goes the extra mile choosing styling locations and creating beautiful set ups. Not only did my end result improve…but my workflow, packaging, creating moments and editing. Stella is truly experienced and so willing to share everything she has learned! This workshop was so inspiring and I have to add – Stella is not only an amazing photographer she is pretty entertaining too…loved her fun way of teaching. Thank you Stella Uys Photography for sharing your knowledge…I have been blessed – Hannes Roodt Photography

“Dear Stella. I am really happy that I invested in my business by attending your wedding photography workshop. I have been shooting weddings professionally for the past 6 years and I feel like your input has upped my game, so to speak. I have taken your information, shooting style and helpful tips and incorporated it into my way of seeing  a wedding; I can honestly and openly say that it has refined my craft. I will recommend your workshop not only to pro’s starting out and learning the drill from someone with your experience but also to more experienced shooters like myself. You have opened my eyes to a whole new level of creativity & I thank you. Much love.” – Simone Franzel Photography

WOW!! What a fantastic experience it was to be apart of this workshop. I have never met anyone that cares this much about teaching their students like Stella. She has such a passion for wedding photography and an amazing heart for teaching it to other people. She doesn’t hold anything back and her knowledge of the industry is out of this world. It was truly amazing to see how she runs her business, it gave me such a significant advantage on learning how to run and grow my own business. The best part was learning how she prepares and shoots an actual wedding. This was indeed an experience well spent and would recommend it to any photographer looking to grow there business or even if you need inspiration to take your first steps in becoming a full-time photographer, then attending a Stella Uys workshop is a MUST!! – Werner JvR Photography

Jy was AMAZING! Ek voel geinspireerd en gemotiveerd om net meer te groei en te verbeter. Baie dankie vir al die moeite en dat jy so gewillig was om jou tegnieke, tips en tricks met ons te deel, iets wat baie fotograwe nie gemaklik mee is nie. Ek sal verseker jou workshop aanbeveel! Die belegging is elke sent werd!” – Jeanette Simpson

“This wedding photography workshop will stand out for years to come. And for me, really a pivotal point in my career as Vivien Leigh Photography. So Blessed to have been a part of something so Big…This was the event that set the wheel into motion – I could not have asked for a Better Setting, Mentor, Idol and fellow Participants. I now look forward to what a great future has in store for everyone who shared in the magic that is Stella Uys Photography.” – Vivien Leigh Photography

What a wonderful time I had at Stella’s wedding workshop. I’ve always admired her work…the clarity and composition are breathtaking!! It was a huge honour to meet her and to get to see how she does things. Stella is a terrific teacher and a wonderful person, always patient, giving advice to her students and sharing her tips and tricks. She explained how to bring out the best of the situation, where to stand, when to click, how to handle stressful situations etc. One can easily see Stella’s passion for photography. It’s remarkable and contagious. I highly recommend her workshops to anyone who wants to expand their wedding photography skills… – Coreen de Leeuw

As a photographer, I am constantly looking for ways to improve not only my photography skills, but also my business and the experience I give to my clients. So that is why I try to attend at least one workshop a year and this year I was super excited to book my seat for the Stella Uys Photography workshop!! What an incredible few days… we learned a lot, laughed constantly, made new friends and got to photograph an absolutely gorgeous styled shoot. Thanks Stella Uys, you are an excellent teacher and huge inspiration!! – Leandrie du Plessis Photography

It was an awesome experience. Not only did I learn about the basics, like posing and how to interact with clients, but also the things we secretly struggle with like marketing. Stella is an amazing person, and an amazing teacher. I feel like I can take everything I learnt and apply it to all aspects of my photography, not just weddings. Candice Clarke

I am totally inspired by you and your energy is contagious.Thank you for being so willing to share your experience and knowledge and for creating such an amazing experience for all of us, you have already inspired so many improvements in my approach and my craft, and I can’t wait to get our there and do more. I walked away not only as a really huge and inspired fan, but a friend too. Will definitely see you again soon. Keshia vd Merwe

I attended Stella’s course and found it HUGELY beneficial, encouraging and so motivating – Everything I’d hoped it would be for me.
I really couldn’t be happier with the experience I had at Hertford with Stella Uys. She answered all my questions and the info she shares with you is INSANE!! The hardest part was saying goodbye – I would REALLY recommend this course to every photographer weather you are just starting out or experienced – It was amazing – Thank you Stella.
