Barcelona Documentary Wedding & Family Photography by Andrzej Witek of Catalonia Spain

Hi, I'm Andrzej A polish guy living in Barcelona since 2008, the year when my first son Alan was born. Being a dad totally changed the way I see the world, life and time, which since then, passes by quicker and quicker. It made me understand how precious are single moments in our life...and I've decided to become the best I can in capturing those special moments. I specialize in photographing destination and elopement weddings in Barcelona and documentary family photography but whatever is important for you, I would love to be there with my camera. I like to work with people who, like me, think that “there is nothing more beautiful than reality”. [Barcelona Wedding Photographer]

Sergio Cueto - Elopement and Wedding Photographer in Spain

I studied Audiovisual Communication at University, hoping to become a film director…but ended up working as a TV news cameraman. I really enjoyed being in the eye of the storm, capturing pictures for the news that people would later see in their houses. Working as a TV news cameraman means that you need to anticipate, to make technical decisions quickly. You have to know when the decisive moment is going to happen, and get to the right place at the right time: that’s the perfect training to be a wedding photographer! I started my career as a photographer in 2011, and somehow I applied my direct, non-invasive TV news style to my wedding photography. I would say that my style is documentary photography spiced with a bit of creativity I'm father of two wonderful kids. When I’m not photographing, I love to build Lego constructions and film stop motion short videos with them. [Madrid Wedding Photographer]

Occitanie France wedding photographer Catherine Hudson

Hi, I am Catherine, a Franco-British photographer, based in the French Pyrénées. Self-taught, passionate about photography for many years, I have specialised in lifestyle wedding photography. I value family, art, mountain hiking and capturing timeless moments. When I photograph weddings, my most sincere wish is to find the connections between you and the people around you and capture the unforgettable moments and the others more fleeting, some that you will have lived in person, others not ... so that you can relive them anywhere and at any time ... I have lived in many countries and photographed unique weddings, some from the same culture, others intercultural, different types of ceremonies, different environments and locations. Cultures are different, people are different - and there’s so much you can do for your wedding, so many possibilities! Let me photograph your wedding that reflects YOU and tell your own story. It is about your love - and it should speak of that love. It is about the obvious moments of the day but also about small details & subtle gestures. [Pyrenees-Orientales 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

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more?
