19 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

Having left the corporate world when my daughter was born, I made a radical career shift into the world of photography and studied full-time during 2008 at The National College of Photography in Johannesburg. We were taught to shoot everything on film, however, none of our course modules covered wedding photography. During the year, however, I was totally blown away by a talk given to our class by a multi-award winning highly acclaimed mainstream photojournalist. I took immense inspiration from his open enthusiasm about his work, and, it was for this reason that I decided to base my end-of-year portfolio on a photojournalistic insight into the state of townships in and around Johannesburg as well as its impact on the lives and characters of its people. This entailed visiting 3 different townships and unobtrusively capturing their inhabitants going about their everyday lives. It was by no means easy, however, I was awarded a distinction for this work. Photojournalistic wedding photography was thus an obvious career progression for me, and the following year I ventured into that field. I am now a professional Johannesburg wedding photographer, working in and around Gauteng. My style is best described as photojournalistic or documentary and I believe that some of the most expressive photographs are those which are captured in the moment – natural and unposed. By making use of beautiful lighting in both an illustrative and creative manner, and combining that with my natural story-telling approach, I will ensure that your wedding photos reflect you at your most spontaneous and relaxed – as you should be on your wedding day! I am unobtrusive in my technique and I record the events as they unfold, capturing emotions, reactions and real moments with as little direction as possible. I have had numerous weddings featured in magazines and on blogs [Gauteng Wedding Photographer]

WPJA Trophy William Lambelet Wedding and Elopement Photographer for France and Occitanie

William started out as a freelance wedding photographer in 2009. Very soon a documentary approach emerged and gave meaning to his work. Covering weddings like a photojournalist allowed him to develop a personal style. For him, this approach is the best way to document all the details of the day in a genuine and original way. Because a wedding is a totality. It is not limited to an exchange of wedding rings, or to the first waltz. It is the sum of many moments, both significant and trivial. His work has received several international awards (more than 200), including the global title of «Photographer of the year» by the WPJA. He has also lectured on his approach to wedding photography around the world (Moscow, Mexico, Johannesburg, Delhi, ...). [Montpellier Wedding Photographer]

When we ask ourselves “What is the most important moment in my life”, the answer of “my wedding day” is generally early in the list. The trust of a couple in me to photo these moments always excites me. You create the images to stay with you for the next 50-100 years and maybe the images that will pass to your grandchildren. This responsibility brings along the obligation to work hard at wedding day and after and provide wonderful photos to couple. We don’t have the luxury to miss even one single moment. Every month of the day is very precious whether it is important or not. Therefore I always try to shoot memorable portraits for you as well as trying to compose the story of the day. Hello! I am a wedding photographer who lives in Istanbul and Izmir but free to go everywhere in the world for photo shooting. This flexibility to travel stems from also being a travel and documentary photographer I think. I have worked in photography committee of travel, geography and culture magazine Atlas which is published in Turkey and Europe for a long time and I have photographed and written my themes. I was also the photography editor of Skylife magazine for a period of time. I have made editorial shootings for numerous magazines and newspapers. I think these fields that I came to grips with in past enabled me to look at wedding photography from different angles. I try to convey the reflex of story-telling and other disciplines to wedding photography. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]

Paris wedding and elopement photography by Charline Eberhardt of France

I discovered photography as a little girl. It has always been a part of our life to be taken in pictures and create memories that last forever. When I was 18, my parents offered my 1st camera of my own. I tried to use it the best I could but didn't really take the time to go further. In 2009, I started to work at Sony, in marketing and discovered the world of photographers that reminded me how much I loved it. I started to ask a lot of questions and got interested in technology & techniques. In 2013, I have decided to quit everything and leave for around the World trip. 2 years on my own, with my backpack and a camera, to encounter as many people as possible and take pictures to see if I really like it as a job. And guess what? When I came back, I have decided to take the leap and I founded my company in 2016. After not even a year doing this job, I started to shoot weddings and completely fell in love with it. All the emotions, the kind looks, the hugs, the love. I shoot 15 to 22 weddings per year. So in only 3 seasons, I have already shot 50 weddings and I can't wait for the next year to start all over again. Now you know me a little bit more: I'm a travel addict, who loves taking photos and telling beautiful stories of life through my pictures. I want to meet you, to discover you, and to capture everything you feel with my camera. I’m completely addicted to smiles, happiness, close-knit families, crazy couples, and people who want to enjoy life. I am based in Biarritz but I travel everywhere for my work, in France but also Worldwide. Take me for my next adventure with you, with a great sound of your favorite music in the ears.

Perugia wedding photography by Francesca Vitulano of Umbria Italy

Francesca Vitulano - Documentary wedding photographer based in Umbria. Hi, I'm Francesca and I'm the female soul of "Framelines" studio. I’ve been photographing weddings professionally since 2012 all over Italy and abroad. With a Bachelor Degree and a Master in Fine Arts, I became interested in photojournalism while studying Set Design. Started with a strong passion, photography became year by year my full-time job. My professional dream was to work in an international and dynamic environment and "Framelines" offered me the chance to work with couples coming from all over the world, to be creative and have the chance to experiment. I really didn't think twice. I have quickly learned the rules of wedding photography and thanks to my sensitive soul I've discovered that my war-horse is to enter completely in intimate with the subject I'm shooting and this allows me to be constantly present documenting the wedding with an unobtrusive vision in order to enhance the raw emotions and the un-posed spontaneous moments. I now photograph between 30-40 weddings a year and I’m lucky enough to be involved in very different ceremonies (Catholic, Civil, Symbolic, Jewish, Indian, Arabic, Orthodox) that give me the chance to enter strictly in contact with different cultures from all over the world. Beside the Italian territory, I also flew over Italy border for capturing destination weddings abroad: In my "photographer passport" you can see few traditional three-days weddings in Morocco, two international marriages in the Netherlands and a Scotland wedding. The best feedback I received is when one of my clients tell me that through my images you can really touch the positive vibes of the wedding day, you can really see people enjoy. That's true because wedding photography is something I authentically love and enjoy doing. Professional Association: - I'm an active member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), one of the most prestigious photography associations for international weddings.

Sofia wedding and elopement photography by Boris Hristov, of Bulgaria

Hello! My name is Boris. I am 38 years old. I was born in Sofia. Imaginative art and music are two of the basic things I have been doing since my early teaching years, in one aspect have shaped my further life path, and I dare say that they have played a major role in shaping me as a person. At a later stage in my life, as a boomerang, when I graduated my musical education, photography appeared in my life. It seemed to fill a long lost piece of the puzzle of my childhood when my love of the fine art turned into my profession. At various times of the year, I'm busy with various photographic projects. Portrait, wedding, art, advertising, reporting, etc. No matter in which of the chosen styles are my engagements, be it in relation to a personal project or a work for a client, that has always excited me and I hope to be able to convey with my pictures. I capture relationships between people, acquaintances, and strangers. This moment, this day and the world in which we live, tomorrow just will not be the same, and the reminder to us and our children, where we have been, how we lived and who we loved are precisely the memories sealed after the trivial click of the camera. I take pictures as something very personal and intimate, as with my pictures I give people the opportunity to see the world in my personal perspective, where I am passing on their personal emotions, feelings, and worldview. My photographs have participated in several national exhibitions, published in magazines, as well as in the largest online galleries for art photography. I sincerely hope that looking at the pictures in my portfolio, you will be able to experience the emotion and feel the excitement as a participant in them. If so, I'd be glad to get in touch with me, get to know each other and work together. Sincerely, Boris Hristov [Sofia Wedding Photographer]

I'm a documentary wedding photographer who lives in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with my best friend and Husband Tom, our beautiful son Toby and a lot of gnomes and pixies. I come from a large extended Gujarati family in Tanzania, where we're all full of mischief - so if you're having a big fat Indian wedding, I'll feel right at home. Or as they say in Dar-es-Salaam, Hakuna Matata, as I totally love weddings that are full of happy chaos, lots of dhamaal and masti, the type of wedding celebrations that Indian weddings are all about! Love, warmth, and happiness that shines through your images is what I am to provide. My work takes me around the world to cover weddings of all types. I have travelled to Tanzania including Zanzibar, Kenya including Mombasa and Nairobi, France, Italy, Canada, and Ireland for weddings in recent times. So if you're looking for a photographer with personality, who will join in with the balle balle, the gidha and the garba, who will probably shed a tear when you walk down the aisle, who loves masala chai, gulab jamuns (yummy), and all things Bollywood...

Boulder wedding photography by Bonnie Sizer of Colorado

Bonnie is a Scottish word for beautiful. Having this name has encouraged me to see the beauty in everything. Born and raised in Boulder, CO, I’ve always had a travel bug and a passion for art. I specialize in outdoor portraits using natural and staged lighting. My editing style is bold and vibrant. You’ll find that my client interactions and photography reflect the high value I place on family, honesty, intelligence (I am a Ravenclaw after all), and humor. My other roles include substitute teacher, Denver Comic Con volunteer, luckiest wife in the world, and dog momma. Even as a small child, my parents made sure to instill in me a love for viewing and creating art. This life-long immersion in the art world inspired me to pursue an art degree for part of my undergraduate career at Colorado State University (although I ended up with a BA in International Studies and a minor in history). As I sought a place to study history for my master’s degree, I made sure to find a place that would encourage and foster my artistic side. I traveled to Norwich, UK to get my MA in Modern European History at the University of East Anglia. I chose UEA for its dedication to the arts and the rigor of its Slavic studies program. My coursework there focused on art and literature in the Soviet Union and I wrote my dissertation on Soviet Cinema. It was at this time that I bought my first DSLR camera because my point and shoot offered nowhere near the amount of artistic control I desired over my images. I now feel at home as a wedding photographer in Colorado. I own my own business, I'm following my passion, and I love it! [Boulder Wedding Photographer]

Lancashire wedding reportage photography by Steven Rooney of England, United Kingdom

I was born in Scotland but have lived in England most of my life, and I’ve been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I trained and worked as a primary school teacher before working in FE and eventually made my way to where I am now, using my camera to pay the bills full time. I live in the North West of England with my wife Sally and our 3 children who are our pride and joy. Sally and I run the business together. Well, Sally runs it, I take the pictures. We pride ourselves in looking after our clients throughout the whole process and exceeding expectations. Sally also runs our sister company Smileomatic Photobooths which won the best wedding special touch (North West) at the 2018 Wedding Industry Awards. I’m passionate about making people happy through my photography. I’ve loved weddings ever since I started shooting them some 12 years ago because each and every wedding I shoot is unique. Not because of the flowers, the table decorations or the venues, but because of the people involved. The characters in a story that has yet to be written. Over the years I’ve come to realise that the images that are most important to people are those which can really rekindle feelings and emotions. And this applies to all photos, not just wedding photography. It’s my own experiences in life up to this point that makes me release the shutter when I do. And why what’s important to you, will also be important to me. [Lancashire Wedding Photographer]

We loved so many of them that I couldn't pick any shots in particular, but some of the action shots are brilliant, particularly whilst we are dancing. It bought back so many great memories from the day and you have captured the atmosphere perfectly. Going through the pictures it was like we were there again.
