Vendee is home to French wedding photographer Sybil Rondeau

I am a photographer because I can put order into my world this way and give it a meaning. When everything comes in its right place in my viewfinder, nothing is more satisfying! I am passionate, perfectionist, independent, workaholic. As far as I can remember, I have always been looking for an artistic way to express myself. Some years ago, when I got my first camera, I immediately knew it was it! A revelation and immediate passion quickly focused to portrait and social pictures. This is the reason for my interest in weddings. There is no better better occasion to catch these short moments full of life, full of emotion, while playing with light and dealing with all unexpected events. My feminine sensitivity and my discretion are some of my assets to let couples live again - if not discover - their wedding. Through spontaneous images that will be full of life, of poetry and, sometimes, of humour. I shoot about twenty weddings each year, and I've been shooting weddings for six years.

Damien Dohmen is a wedding photographer for Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Pyrénées-Atlantiques

I have been a photographer for 5 years now. Before that, I was in charge of HR in a big corporate business; photography at first was a way to let out some steam, it was a very demanding job requiring a lot of letting go. At first, I was shooting exclusively empty landscapes, with no one, no human activity, maybe because I had to be overly social in my daily job. One day I got fed up of my job, decided to devote my time to my passion and started a retraining. In the beginning, I was not attracted by social photography (wedding, portraits). But today, I can reconnect with what I liked in my HR job, help people write their own story and memories. I need it, it’s my fuel. Shooting weddings is my media to tell a story and render what I learned about people. It helps me keep faith in humanity and in feelings we too often try to hide. I also do a lot of corporate photography along with personal projects. [Pyrénées-Atlantiques Wedding Photographer]

Whether it's an exceptional day like your wedding day or just a moment of your everyday life, with friends or family, these are the moments that build our lives. Sublimate your memories, that's my goal! My job is not just to take "beautiful" pictures.

The photos bear witness to our history, to what we are, it is a unique heritage to transmit to its children. Have you never searched the photo box of your parents or grandparents? I could get lost hours, even whole days ... And I'm sure your children will appreciate as much as I appreciate the photographic heritage you leave them.

Haut-Rhin Wedding Photography by Nicolas Bernard, of Grand Est, France

Journalist and reporter-professional photographer for ten years, touches all of communication, graphics and multimedia, I define myself today as a sensor of emotions, whether by the clichés that I realize or by the words that slide under my fingers. Each wedding photography that I make is for me a moment that I capture as well with my eyes as with my heart I appreciate above all the energy that emanates from human relationships. The one that makes us all vibrate, cry, stress, hope or laugh. An energy and multiple emotions that we meet on the day of her marriage. For a long time, I thought this statement was overrated. Then I got married myself. I lived the experience from the inside. And there, I understood. I understood what some people call "The most beautiful day of your life". Still, I'm a dad of a wonderful little girl. For me, the most beautiful moment I could live was his birth. When I got married, I realized we could do as well, but longer. A moment that lasts hours and hours; we have the feeling that he will never stop. In my case, it lasted two days. A weekend that I savored as much as I could so much energy and love were huge. My wife and I often dream of going back. Relive, once again, all that people who love you have to offer you: their personality, their humor, their kindness, their madness, their tenderness. We try to engrave all these moments in our mind hoping never to forget them. If you read this, it's because you too have this ambition. You will want to remember the beautiful story you are going to live that day. That's good, I'm here for that ;-). [Haut-Rhin Wedding Photographer]

All these experiences gained and success allows me today to be responsive and creative with a global vision of the scenes taking shape in front of me. Photography allows me to have this freedom, to work where I ask, without constraint. 33 years old, a small family that was built around me in my photographic adventures started in 2003 while the film was still a standard and the digital a novelty.

Benjamin Brette is a France wedding reportage photographer with the WPJA

Hello, I'm Benjamin. I live in France, near Paris, but work everywhere. I'm married and father of 2 young teenagers. I love weddings, I love brides and grooms. More than photography maybe. One of my friends has invented a word for me: "mariageophile", a french neologism that means literally crazy about weddings. I love weddings, but I hate clichés and I try sometimes to be disrespectful about those clichés. You don't want that classic portrait in front of flowers, the hands with rings close up? Great, I don't make these kinds of things. The only thing that matters is telling you your story in a contemporary manner, highlighting great and little moments that make your wedding unique. I try to shot a wedding like I would do for street photography: I'm waiting for the good moment, the good light, the good composition. I only shot weddings, 30-35 per year. I shot my 100th wedding in 2014. Remember: Beautiful persons make beautiful stories! [Île-de-France Wedding Photographer]

Photo of Scotland wedding photographer Lukas Powroziewicz

Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. My name is Lukas. I describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around. Your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events.

Madrid wedding destination photographer Miguel Onieva in Spain

As a teenager I enjoyed creating memories in a different, natural and original way. My dream and my hope was to become one of the best wedding photographers in the world. I still did not know how to get it, but I was very clear that I did not want to be a photographer of the bunch. I enjoy photographing people, telling their stories and getting the best out of them. This is where I can further promote the documentary side of this profession. I'm based in Spain and shoot weddings around the whole world. [Madrid Wedding Photographer]

Flanders-based Joshua Dhondt is a Wedding Photographer for Antwerp, Belgium

Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 7 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

España wedding photographer of the WPJA, Rocio Vega Roa

I was born in Colombia, and at the age of 20 I came to live to study cinematography in Septima Ars, and then Professional photography and master in digital Photography in Efti. I have been a freelance photographer for 15 years, created my own company Veroa, and now I identify as Momenticos by Rocio Vega. My personal evolution is very tied to my professional evolution, always learning and evolving, always thirsty of life and knowledge. The emotions create our memories. The things we´ve been through, all that we have lived intensely remains guarded in our heart. But our memory is fragile and photography makes those blurry recollections recover brightness, gives us the possibility of remembering forever these instants that make our life unique. My passion is to capture the best way those momenticos, this small instants in which the soul undresses and teaches its essence. I live through every wedding as a great celebration being conscious that probably this one will be the only time that all of them are in the same place simultaneously, looking for the connections, the bounds that join them, that one that thrills them and makes them cry of happiness.

Liguria and Savona Wedding Photography by Andrea Bagnasco, of Italy

I'm a keen observer. I've always been. I remember my mom kept telling me not to stare at people when I was a kid. I don't seem to have listened as I keep staring at people, only now I do it through the viewfinder of my camera. My interest in photography started back in the mid-'80s when I was barely a teenager. I saved for over a year to afford my first camera, which was a Nikon FM2 with a 50mm lens. A fully manual, film camera that I still own to this day and that still takes perfectly good pictures. It was a time when cameras and photographs were both meant to last. Cameras were mostly mechanical machines and photographs were physical prints, created on film and impressed on paper. There was something tangible about taking a picture and pictures, even normal family vacation pictures, were taken to make a statement. I remember leaving for several days with my family and I could take with me 1 or maybe 2 rolls of film. That was 36 or 72 exposures total. So, pressing the shutter was something exciting that came at the end of a thoughtful process, which could take minutes or a split second, but still: taking a picture was making a statement. And if you think about it, these photographs are still around, be it in albums or boxes in the closet. It may be your pictures as a child or the pictures of your parents or grandparents. They are still doing their work of preserving a memory, of passing down to generations information about people who came before us. They are telling us who we are and where we come from. Fast forward a few decades, come digital sensors and smartphones and photography has radically changed, in that cameras seem to only last a few years before going obsolete and pictures are taken by the thousands, very few of which, if any, will ever be printed and stand any chance to be looked at by anyone in 10 years or more. Still, my job is to take photographs of weddings and I like to come from the bygone era of photography that was meant to last when the shutter was pressed to make a statement. That has stuck with me, even if I'm working with digital cameras and the 36 exposures roll has turned into a multi-thousand pictures capacity memory card. My mindset hasn't changed, the excitement of seeing all the elements come together to make the frame I am looking for and pressing the shutter, that hasn't changed either. I'm entering my 10th year as a professional wedding photographer now. It all happened almost by chance, when I was facing decisions about my 15 years long corporate career and my personal life had me rethink my professional path. I was asked to shoot a friend's wedding but I hadn't practiced photography since ages. I learnt photography technique when I was in my teens then put it aside as my hobby is and has always been guitars. So I borrowed a digital camera and took this people's wedding pictures without ever been taught how to shoot a wedding. I just went out there and took pictures of what I saw, without ever giving directions to anyone as I had no idea how things were supposed to be directed. It was documentary wedding photography without me knowing it. Turns out, everybody loved the pictures. I was loving guitars and music so much and hoping to be loved back but as it went, photography loved me more than guitars ever did. I had a talent and the responsibility of making it grow. In the meanwhile, I started my business. I already had the basic techniques down from my younger days, so I studied the work of the masters. Photographers that always appealed to me such as W. Eugene Smith, H. Cartier Bresson, Don Mc Cullin, Elliott Erwitt, Salgado and the more I studied, the more I discovered, the more books I acquired: Alex Webb, Fan Ho, Josef Koudelka, Bruce Gilden, Robert Frank, James Nachtwey among the others. The best way to improve your lexicon is to read books. Likewise for photography, studying the work of the masters on photography books is what develops your own photographic language. What educates your way of looking at things and crafting a picture, to make your statement. To this day, I've shot approximately 300 weddings. Anything from eloping couples and a pair of guests to 200+ people events. No matter how big and fancy or small and simple, it's always about telling the story of my clients through my pictures. It's about putting my photography lexicon to work to craft images that will be true to my clients, to their day, to their vision. They provide the content, I provide the style. Simple as that.

Andrew Billington award winning documentary wedding photographer

The first chapter in my working life was as an actor and theatre stage manager. I’ve spent my life telling stories and I continue to do so. I live with my wife Rachel and my two dogs on the edge of the Peak District in the UK - most of my spare time is spent walking, reading and catching up with box sets. For the last ten years, I’ve been photographing weddings, refining and perfecting my relaxed, story-telling approach. I photograph on average 40 weddings a year and try to find something different for every wedding couple I work with. 3 years ago I was asked to run a workshop on my approach to documentary wedding photography and that has expanded into running full day workshops across the UK (and even a solo, workshop in Crete in 2018). As well as photographing weddings I photograph live theatre for a few national theatres and it's a way of getting my photography to a wider audience through Nation Newspapers and exhibitions.

Utrecht wedding photography by Linda Bouritius - Netherlands WPJA

Well hello to you. My name is Linda a professional wedding photographer living in the Netherlands together with her husband, two kids and a cat called Kiwi. Photography has always been a big part of my life, but for a long time not in a professional way. When looking back I always look at the world around me in compositions, and as a kid, I always brought a small camera with me when I was away. Photography as a career has never crossed my mind when choosing an education. I studied communications. Looking back a study that is all about people. After working in various large corporations the urge for something new was getting bigger and bigger. As a result, I started to work for a small online radio station as their social media manager, next to my day-to-day job. A way to meet new people, change perspective and be more creative. So creative I got. In order to get interesting content for our channels, I picked up my camera. For a few summers, I was travelling across the Netherlands with a team to capture music festivals. Focusing on young talented artists. My photography got picked up and I received my first small assignments. At the end of 2014, I decided that it was all or nothing. The day job didn't inspire me anymore and I decided to fully focus on photography. Without any assignments I stepped into 2015 and slowly work was there. I accepted every photography job out there. From photographing newborn babies to corporate seminars. I also had a few weddings and fell in love instantly. It reminded me somehow about music photography. I always loved just photographing the crowd, the feeling of a day in the sun enjoying music. I never cared that much for the artists and being in a pit with 15 other photographers elbowing your way for an image. In 2016 I decided to say now to all other assignments and fully focus on weddings only. As today I only shoot weddings and it's a fulltime job for me. During winter I focus on some personal/ documentary projects and someday in the life sessions for families. My approach to wedding photography is as unposed as possible. I love to look for the true identity of a couple and translate that into my images. [Utrecht Wedding Photographer]

Romania and Bucharest wedding photography by Mihai Zaharia

I am Mihai, professional wedding photographer since 2011. I love shooting authentic images, candid shots that capture real moments as they occur naturally throughout the day. These images are my main focus when shooting weddings. And I strongly believe they are the most important and the most relevant images from a wedding. I will never stage or alter anything during the wedding day. I also try and be as unintrusive as possible. Although I'm not “a fly on the wall” - I tend to stay in the middle of the action, working close to people with my wide angle lens. [Bucharest Wedding Photographer]

Braga Wedding Photography by Paulo Castro, of Portugal

Paulo Castro began his photographic journey in 2003. It all began as a hobby. In "the National Park of Peneda-Gerês," where his first pictures were taken, he learned to watch the light and understand the photographic technique. He devoted himself to photography of nature and portrait, having stood out in “specialist” magazines and on online sites. Later, between 2005 and 2010, other work was done in other several areas, especially in extreme sports and reporting in nightclubs. In 2010, he conducts his own project, to a momentous register and of memory and also begins to dream of the possibility of becoming a full-time photographer. With the birth of my daughter, Inês Castro in 2013, my greatest dream had come true. Since then my daughter has been the source of my inspiration in my professional career. Every moment is captured naturally and through it, I tell a story of reality. The photograph is what remains to later be remembered. I photograph for passion!!! [Braga Wedding Photographer]

Mark Wallis shoots documentary and reportage wedding photography in the UK.

I have been taking photographs for most of my life. I have a passion for capturing what is happening around me, with no intervention or interruption, and I love a good wedding.

I like to immerse myself in your wedding, there from the preparations until the party is in full swing, and all I ask is that you and your guests forget about the photography and enjoy the day to the fullest. Your reward will be a thorough record of the events and emotions of the whole day. The REAL story of your wedding. Based in Derbyshire with my wife and two kids, I shoot weddings all over the UK and worldwide. [Derbyshire Wedding Photographer]

England and Gloucestershire wedding reportage photography by Jonny Barratt of the United Kingdom

Heeeere’s Jonny! Ok, I’ll spare you all those gags (hilarious the first fifty times, afterward not so much) and get right to it. If you’re planning the biggest party of your life right now and want a documentary wedding photographer to capture all the cray in a way that’s honest and fuss-free then welcome to my humble little profile. I'm guessing you want to know who this random and curiously handsome (ahem) man pitching to photograph your wedding is. Of course, you do! I would as well. After all, I want to spend one of the biggest days of your life with you so it’s important to know that we’ll get along. It makes my job a lot more fun and the photography just that bit more awesome. So, in a nutshell, I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in Gloucestershire, the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds. I travel all over the UK and beyond to capture wedding celebrations in my alternative, photojournalistic style. That’s me in the picture looking all arty. Out of shot is my wife Rosa pulling faces with our baby daughter whilst our crazy basset hound chases its own tail. This is totally a cliche but I genuinely love what I do. I'm so lucky this has been my full-time job for over three years now but I’ve been taking photos for far longer. I studied Image Production at college (which seems like a LOOONG time ago now) and that’s where it all started. I like to travel to far-flung corners of the earth and plan adventures. I’ve ridden a bike the length of Vietnam, climbed mountains in the Himalayas, sought out the Northern Lights and travelled Europe extensively in a campervan. I once ran 54 miles in one day, Forest Gump style. My adventure-seeking has slowed down a smidgen since my daughter came along but I still love to plan little getaways with the family. When it comes to shooting weddings it's all about natural story-telling images. This for me is all about capturing the emotions and energy of the day without staging anything, posing anyone, setting up moments or shouting directions. Don’t fret- I still shoot all the beautiful details, parents still get that must-have family photo for their mantlepiece, and if you create some time alone with your partner I can capture the two of you together, loved-up and freshly married! While I do appreciate the wealth of outstanding talent in the wedding photography world, I try not to obsess over my contemporaries too much. I feel it can become counter-productive in searching for my own voice. Instead, I tend to feel inspired by other genres: travel and street photography, for example. And I draw a lot of inspo from the place where I live; Gloucestershire countryside is gorgeous darling, even if the phone signal can be a bit rubbish. With the fear of waffling on for too long here’s my quick-fire top reasons why I could be the right photographer for you: 1. I’m the real thing. What I mean here is, recently, you may have noticed a trend for my style of photography. Words like “photojournalism” and “reportage” are getting chucked around like confetti. But I’m a pose-free, cheese-free zone and promise to offer you docu-style photography in its purest form. 2. I’m no-nonsense. I know that this is your day, not mine. You won’t catch me shouting at guests to “Smile!” or arranging people. You’ll barely know I’m there. 3. I’m a great guy. All my mates say so. Well, some of them. But seriously, I’ll blend in and mix with your guests in a friendly, engaging way. I won’t be hiding in bushes paparazzi style. Getting up close and in the middle of all the action is how I get my best images. 4. I don’t want to miss a thing. As a wedding photographer, I want to be there for the wedding in its entirety. I offer unlimited coverage, that way I get to stay for the party! During the day my main focus is people (I love people), but I’ll make sure I get all those intricate little details too. 5. I’m not allergic to group photos. I won't shy away from these, I’m always happy to fit a few in. I do them in my own way and always inject a bit of fun. I’d recommend doing only a handful (you gotta get back to that party, after all) but I know how important it is to get a few family ones. After all, we need to keep Mum happy. So, if you appreciate photography and are passionate about your wedding images, let's collaborate to create something truly great. Get in touch AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because, like all good snappers, I get booked up pretty sharpish especially for those summer months. I can only shoot around 35 weddings a year (I’m told I do need to actually see my wife and child occasionally) plus each wedding needs my full attention so I’m careful not to overbook myself. I can’t work with everyone who enquires (I wish I could) but if you think your wedding and my creative documentary approach would be an unbeatable combo then contact me and we’ll start talking.

Gaelle Le Berre is a reportage wedding photographer from France and more locally, Finistère

My name is Gaelle and I am a professional wedding photographer with studies in Applied Arts (Nantes, France), Graphic Arts (Quimper, France) and a Diploma in Applied Photography (RMIT, Melbourne) under my belt. I am passionate about everything I do as a wedding photographer: from creating a great working rapport with my clients to ensure their special day is as relaxed and free-flowing as possible; to artfully capturing the pure emotions, small gestures and loving details of this day in the most natural and reflective way. In addition to my great passion for capturing life’s most beautiful moments on film, I proudly possess many years of experience and prestigious photography awards - both at home and abroad. My fervour for photography came to light when I was 15 years old and began experimenting with the process of developing photos in a dark room. In that moment, I discovered my passion for encapsulating real life in the art of film, a passion which only continued to grow as I did. I began my professional career within photography at the age of 21, where I worked as a photojournalist for Boston’s Canton Newspaper in the USA, acting as a mirror to the world. Aspiring to develop my technique and expertise within photography, I then furthered my studies at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where I won two greatly prestigious awards for my work (Victorian Photography Student of the Year, 2001 - Gold and Silver awards). Highly-qualified and ready to take on the world, I returned to Europe and became actively involved in several projects in London with well known companies such as London Dungeons, Tesco and Vittel. I was later hired as a photo technician at Tapistry MM - a large lab in SoHo - where I was responsible for all C41 development, applying traditional darkroom techniques of colour and development. During this unforgettable time in my life, I rubbed shoulders and worked with the biggest names in fashion and music photography, including; Kevin Westemberg, Miles Aldridge, Kevin Westemberg, Derek Henderson and many others. This exhilarating career path has led me to the life I currently lead. After four years at home in France, working as a photo sales technician and dedicating myself to my family of five, I am now living out my dream job as a professional photographer. Still to this day nothing thrills me more than the challenge of capturing each individual couple’s special day in the most organic and unrestrained way. To be able to capture more than a picture - to capture a moment, a feeling, a thought - that is what I live for. [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

Bucharest based wedding photographer,  Vlad Lodoaba.

I was born in 1983 in the western Romanian city of Timisoara. In the eighth grade I started taking pictures with a film camera, developed in my mom’s bathroom. I don’t know if I had any talent or a special calling, but having a hobby gave me self-confidence and an optimistic attitude (for an introvert). However, I didn’t follow through with it right away, as I was still dreaming I could change the world. I spent the next few years going back and forth between studying abroad and coming back home to work in journalism and public administration. Looking back introspectively, my choices don’t seem that random and it seems to me I was always drawn to the observer-reformer role (as someone who notices unfairness in society when very young can hardly stay indifferent to the urge to change things). Perhaps it’s the same thing that drives my passion for photography. Fortunately, throughout these years, I kept my camera close. When I was studying in the US, I worked as a photographer and photo editor for the college newspaper. I then returned to Timisoara where I photographed football hooligans, street fights and small time local crooks. It was fun, but you can’t live with your parents and chase your dreams forever. Being a photojournalist in a one horse town was becoming an expensive hobby. In 2009 when I was in London studying for a postgrad in public administration, I had the chance to take photos at the G20 summit. I came back home once again to find more and more of my friends getting married. Of course, I took my camera at their weddings, just for fun. But they were so pleased with my photos that they encouraged me to do this professionally. I started the business in 2012. For the next 3 years I also had a “day job” delivering training courses, recruiting other trainers and coordinating the IT systems for a language school. And during the weekends I photographed weddings. It was a time when we thought we wouldn’t make it, but we did. I began shooting more and more weddings, at first in Romania, then in Italy, France, England, Switzerland or Greece. I’m still grateful to all those who trusted me. Now I collect vibes. I look for photo projects that enrich the soul and have the potential to make the viewer resonate with the images and subjects. [Bucharest Wedding Photographer]

Valencia wedding photographer Antonio Calatayud, of Spain

I have always been passionate about cinema and since I was a child I knew I wanted to dedicate myself to audiovisual art. Hanging from a camera wherever I went, I decided that I wanted to dedicate myself professionally to my passion. I enrolled in Audiovisual Communication to acquire knowledge and become a specialist in different languages: photography, film, videos, multimedia, television, and radio. During the last years of my career, I launched into the world of work and started working on films as a "decoration meritorious". It was an interesting job because of my passion for cinema, but the decoration was not my thing, so I started to alternate different jobs as an editor and camera assistant. In 2004 I graduated and at the time I had the possibility, I took a camera and started recording and working as a camera operator. It was what I really liked and where I was going to put all my effort. [Valencia Wedding Photographer]

Malaga wedding photography by Jesus Merida, of Andalusia Spain

Hello, my name is Jesús Mérida and I am a wedding photographer. After dedicating myself to advertising photography for a long time I decided to look for something more than still lifes that didn't transmit anything beyond aesthetics. I was always attracted to the photography of Jean loop Sief, Elliot Erwing. . . and other great photographers of the time for the spontaneity and feelings they took in their snapshots. It is precisely this that gives me absolute satisfaction within wedding photography. Another source of inspiration is street photography. To know that the moment is unrepeatable, that it is 100% natural. My main objective is that all the moments of the wedding are real, without preparations, without posing. I love this idea of being true, faithful to life and of course to my partners. That's why my style fits perfectly into photojournalism or documentary photography of weddings. I consider myself a self-taught person, although I have done several workshops. I learned the Light in a studio and always going out with the camera. Today I devote myself entirely to photography, it's my way of life. I am a very happy person thanks to my family and photography. My city is Malaga, in southern Spain. I work mainly here although I travel anywhere in the world. [Malaga Wedding Photographer]

Is just so real, I shoot what happens : the real wedding, the real smiles, the real tears. But… everyone loves love stories. Photos which take your breath away. Everyone needs the portrait session, alone, just the bride and the groom where I can see their real love, the intimacy.

Trieste wedding photography by Paolo Blocar - Italy and Friuli-Venezia Giulia professional

I was born in Trieste, where I have always lived apart from some time in various Italian cities, but worshiping the sea and the climate of our city, my heart has always brought me back here. And that's where I met Lisa, many years ago. Then one day I asked for her hand ... and since then we share everything, even cameras. I followed Lisa in this project of hers and I believed in her from the beginning, also because I was lucky to have a photographer dad who taught me to love photography in all its forms and made me realize how important it is. Precisely for this reason, I wanted to put body and soul, together with Lisa, in this work; for me it is great to meet new people, living with them the emotions during the wedding day and tell the story through the images. I am a great lover of technology, cinema, film, and TV series: I would spend whole days looking at them without interruption and I always find inspiration for work. In my free time, I love being in the company of our family, chatting with friends even late and spending nice evenings with them filling our bellies with good food, at home or in some restaurant. I love traveling, visiting new places, experimenting with new things and tasting typical foods of the place: work permitting I would be perpetually traveling; from America to Oceania, from South Africa to Iceland, my dream is to be able to visit at least a small piece of every continent.

I'm in love with life and obsessed by capturing the small moments that become the big memories. I want to tell the honest and pure story of your day: focused on emotions, those unguarded moments & stolen glances. I studied psychology and until recently I combined working in an eating disorder clinic & shooting weddings. I decided to quit because I want to give my photography 100% focus! However, my work as a psychologist has shaped my work without a doubt. My main focus is connecting and looking for the connections between everyone attending the wedding. Your best man giving you a thumbs up, your mom with tears in her eyes, the look of pride on your fathers face. Those are the things I want to help you remember from the day. Next to shooting weddings, I love photographing when I'm traveling and even better: combine those two for destination weddings! I shoot between 15-20 weddings per year. This way I'll look forward to every wedding as if it is my first. I treasure this almost magical feeling! [Utrecht Wedding Photographer]

In 2011 I completed my education at the Fotovakschool. I still follow workshops and seminars because I believe you have never been taught and in this way I give you the best of myself. With two more photographers / videographers in the family, it is often a camera that hits the clock here. With a film-shooting and photographing son, and a vlogging daughter, you can imagine what that looks like when we travel together, or what the conversations are often about. I am very proud that I can often work together with my son as a videographer and, if necessary, I can outsource some work behind the scenes to my daughter. My husband is good at accounting then;). One of the nicest things I do is to register a marriage. All that love, the special moments, the joy with a smile and a tear, I love it! I will translate your day into atmospheric photographs, special compositions and beautiful details in a relaxed atmosphere. In short, a beautiful image report of your special day!

Wedding Photographer captures quite moment as the bridesmaid looks timidly out before entering the scene
Weddings can be chaotic, noisy affairs where emotions are displayed publicly, so one of your biggest challenges that day can be capturing that quiet, intimate side. Trust, anticipation, skilled observation, savvy lens selection and a host of other judgments make it possible to bag those poignant moments in images that recall the day for those in attendance, and reveal a story for those who were not. It is all part of the unique value proposition that our members bring to wedding photojournalism.Read more

Photo of the Bride & Groom with the guests caught in the rain running for cover.
You will be told some traditions — Hindu, Maltese — consider rain a good omen on a wedding day. You will be told a wet knot is harder to untie. You may — correctly — think that if the two of you can face the day's elements with aplomb and grace, you're more likely to face life's challenges with strength and flexibility. The truth is, you can plan for the possibility of rain on your wedding day . (If it's an outdoor wedding and depending on the climate, in...Read more
Photo of the Bride & Groom living in their own little world just moments after the ceremony | Romantic Wedding Photos
The first time you envisioned your wedding, you probably didn’t see a long list of details to attend to, decisions to be made or negotiations to be undertaken. Surely, your vision involved you and your partner. It was filled with tenderness, sweet melodies, pure bliss…and romance. After all, a wedding is romantic—the consummation of your everlasting love. A skilled wedding photojournalist knows how to anticipate and capture situations that convey those special feelings. When the day is over,...Read more
Cake cutting photograph with the bride and groom deciding if they should smash or not smash the cake.
No other tradition during the wedding day should rely as heavily on improvisation as the cake cutting. Those entrenched in the traditional camp may want to offer guidelines on where to stand, how to cut the cake and when to smile for the camera, but their promptings need not be followed for a thoroughly memorable experience. In fact, not following the “rules” is frequently what makes the cake cutting unforgettable. This time-honored ritual can turn into an entertaining affair with...Read more
Pictures of the Bridal party celebrating while riding from the ceremony to the reception on a party bus.
Weddings are a time to honor tradition, commitment and family. But as any wedding photojournalist knows, they’re also a great time for people to come together and cut loose.

With these tools in hand, your guests are guaranteed a chance to relive the day in all its uninhibited glory.Read more

Hi Fabri! Sometimes I think you will whistle your ears .. we happen to talk about you with great pleasure to friends, relatives and acquaintances! Just the other day a John's aunt came to visit us and there was an opportunity to show her our marvelous wedding album. Yes, she has had the spontaneous reaction they all have: a great emotion! She felt catapulted on that fantastic day, she seemed to be there again! This is solely your merit! To you that you have been able to seize the moment, the spontaneity and the detail; that you have been tireless, available, humble and creative; that you have been able to advise us to the best for the creation of our eternal album! You are a "teacher" as my father says, always present among the guests but never intrusive! Thank you!! We can not do anything but join all our friends and relatives to tell you that the photos of our wedding album thrill us every time, page after page make us relive that day as a story made of only images, from the first to the last moment. We will have a memory forever of all those happy, ridiculous, stolen moments; black and white photos that enhance details, tears and hugs. Greta & Giovanni

Hi Stepan, It's hard to express in words how unbelievable your photos were! You really were fantastic :) Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer. Throughout the process, from discussing ideas with you in the months of preparation to choosing photos for our album afterwards – you've been a pleasure to work with. While our wedding only lasted one day, we are so glad that we'll have your photographs to remember it by for the rest of our lives. You are such an artist, and you truly captured the essence and feeling of the day. We've received so many compliments from our family and friends on the photographs, and we honestly can't stop looking through the album you made us! Thanks again for being such a special part of our wedding. Josef and I were thinking that it might be nice to have an extra session with you on our first anniversary. It wouldn't have to be the exact day, but we thought it would be cool to have photos from you one year later. Let me know what you think :) Thanks again! Isabel

The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You've really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can't stop looking at them - there's just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The composition of some of them is just genius. We had such a fun day, and I'm just delighted that we've got these photos to remember it by - we're so lucky we found you. The presentation box and USB key are also gorgeous, such a lovely touch. I can't even imagine how much work went into the photos, we've spent hours and hours just looking at them! So a MASSIVE thank you and AMAZING work. Cat

Fabio and Maria, you were an absolute pleasure to work with from the start – Customer focus: you were very happy to meet us on more than one occasion to understand how we’d like our wedding day captured and were always very prompt to answer any of our emails (and the many queries from our parents!). In particular we were really touched when you sent us sneak previews of a selection of photos while we were on honeymoon. Proactive: you visited the venues independently to scout out the locations and lighting. On the day, you also took the initiative to speak to our priest and understand when they could take discretely photos during the mass. Professional: On the day, you seamlessly blended in with our guests, adapted flexibly to the flow of the day and captured the story and the emotions of the day beautifully. We are so pleased with our album and are so grateful to you for your hard work and patience! Thanks again to you both!

Covering the photographs, we realize your great professionalism and preparation, and your ability to capture precious moments without ever being intrusive. We thank you once again for making everything more special, unique, timeless. A big hug! Patrizio and Gloria
