Amanda Gril is a Wedding Photographer for Balearic Islands and Ibiza couples in Spain

Photography isn’t my passion. People are. How they interact, how they feel and how they show Love. My camera is just my tool to capture their essence. I love portrait photography, but also food, lifestyle, and landscape photography. I'm most inspired by: · Beauty - I see it everywhere. · Impermanence - nothing exists for indefinitely long, that’s why I try to catch this kiss, that look, those smiles on photos, ‘forever’. · Truth. · Charm of imperfection - Yes, please! Self-driven every day, because Life is such a gift! I am living between Dubai and Ibiza but grew up in a lovely Slovenia. If I have to choose between the sea or forest, I always go for the forest. I just came from Belgrade, where I was invited to have my solo exhibition on portraits - I completely recommend this city, it's awesome! [Ibiza Wedding Photographer]

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
