I've been a photographer for 20 years. I worked as a photojournalist during 15 years for a newspaper. Now I'm loving wedding photography. I love to tell a story, capture emotions and instants, joy and hapiness. [Limoges Wedding Photographer]
My name is Tsvetelina Deliyska and I was born in 1983 in Sofia, Bulgaria. In 2002 I graduated from the National School of Art and Photography, specializing in fine arts photography. While studying I began practicing as a freelance wedding photographer. I shot my first film wedding in 2000. The only memory I have of that day is that unexpectedly I was paid for the job well done! In 2007 I met my future husband, Peter, with whom we formed together one of the leading studios for artistic wedding photography in Bulgaria. I constantly develop and improve my skills and knowledge in the field of photography by visiting and organizing a number of international schools and seminars for wedding photographers, my photographs have been awarded in international competitions, I have participated in several exhibitions, the last one independent. I am a lucky person because my job is also my hobby. I am experiencing every moment with the couples standing in front of my lens, crying and laughing with them, and enjoying to make them happy. I like to tell stories that do not need words! [Sofia Wedding Photographer]
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]

Each service is prepared in order to understand the expectations of my clients and respond to them. I prefer the photos taken on the fly that retranscribe the emotion of the moment to the photo. [Centre-Val de Loire Wedding Photographer]
I deal with documentary reportage photography since more than ten years. I have studied with Major Italian and international reportage photographers, in Italy and abroad. I graduated at the School of Photojournalism of ISFCI in Rome. The passion for photography and for story-telling is literally sweeping me away. My way of shooting has been influenced by study and admiration of the work of the Masters of Photojournalism, the American street photography and the contemporary Italian and English excellences in wedding documentary photography. I feel honored to offer my passion for photography, for story-telling and for life in general to those want to witness their wedding in an authentic and emotional way. [Rome Wedding Photographer]
From a Japanese mother born in Brazil and a Corsican father, I am a child of the world. Diversity is obviously a wealth and it is also what makes each of us unique. Happy married and daddy of two lovely kids, I am naturally animated by exchange and sharing. Each meeting is, therefore, a great openness to the world. I endeavor to produce wedding and elopement images without any artifice and faithful to the precious slices of life that you offer me. My first concern is indeed to get photos as you are, hence my lifestyle approach. I, therefore, propose to you my gaze on your future moments of happiness. If my images appeal to you and my approach speaks to you, I would be glad if we discussed your photographic expectations, whether it be around a beer, a coffee, by telephone, skype or by email. [Cotes-d'Armor Wedding Photographer]
Taking pictures. It makes me happy. I started having fun at 8 yrs old when I got a Kodak Instamatic. My interest in wedding photography came shooting some friends' wedding, and has not run out yet. It's like breathing to me: I can't do without. I don't think the images before making them: I observe and snap, I follow the emotions and the light, in a continuous search for an unusual frame. Every marriage is an encounter with the beauty of a new story to remember, which totally involves my gaze and my heart and eventually becomes part of my own experience; and at the end a part of me remains, with photographs, inside this story. [Varese Wedding Photographer]
Documentary wedding photographer, currently based in Wolverhampton where I live with my wife and 3 children, but I photograph weddings and elopements all over the UK and abroad. My photography style is pure documentary (also referred to as candid, natural, or reportage wedding photography) with no direction/interference as I firmly believe that your wedding day belongs to you and your family and the photographer should not interfere with it. I will never ask anyone to stop, smile, and look at the camera. Documenting weddings from different cultures - including Sikh Weddings, Muslim wedding ceremonies, Hindu weddings, and traditional European church wedding is something that I really enjoy. I am Polish/Canadian with over 25 years of experience, including reportage work for newspapers in Canada and Poland. Covered destination weddings and events in Canada, Poland, France, Spain Italy, and the UK. [Wolverhampton Wedding Photographer]
I am Thomas, a wedding photographer, living in Utrecht. Work throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and actually, secretly the whole world;). Briefly about myself. I live in Leidsche Rijn / Utrecht with my dear wife Leonie; and been married for 3 years. Five years ago we removed a cat (Bouya) from the shelter. Sometimes couch decoration, other times our cat child. If I don't have a camera in my hands ... (that happens sometimes) I like to skate, I love sports; Bodypump, Grit HIIT, can be found 3 times a week in the Crossfit Box and preferably at 9:00 in the morning. We are also crazy about Netflix, what an invention. Cool series that we watch or have watched: Dexter, Breaking Bad, Orange is the new Black, Homeland, The Bridge… and you can wake me up for an animated film. Oh yes ... and for citizens .... the 2nd best invention. My favorite holiday destination is Portugal. A dream for old age is a private mountain in the Algarve. And to realize this, I started this year with a Portuguese language course. Our honeymoon was, therefore, a camper trip through the Algarve. What a cool feeling of freedom that is. [Utrecht Wedding Photographer]
I've been taking photos since I've been a kid and my first real accolade came from my secondary school's annual photography competition for a photo of my pet dog (Dougal). That was on an old Pentax film camera and I've since moved onto digital cameras and shot my first wedding in 2015 with my wife, Annie (also a WPJA member and documentary wedding photographer) and now, over 100 weddings later, I've found my niche in wedding photojournalism. The challenge of capturing the emotion and individuality of the day, without interfering in the flow, makes each wedding I shoot a completely different experience and I love it for that. [Dublin Wedding Photographer]
I'm Leonard. Born Brabander, but actually a Zeeuw, because I grew up in Zeeland. Since 2006 I live in Utrecht. I am married to Janneke and dad of Floris and Julius. In 2013, I became a full time photographer. You can say that I've made my work from my hobby because I'm actually graduated as a neerlandic. I am convinced that, as a photographer, I can tell stories better than ever as a writer or journalist. Probably because of my love for visual arts - also my favorite subject in high school. Tell stories with images instead of words. That's right with me. I feel good at that role and so I photograph weddings. I am constantly observing and looking for stories, emotions and moments. I seek relationships, relationships between people, to the essence of who you and your guests are. In fact, I think that every series I submit should be a family history - told by a journalist photographer. It is very important to me that a bride couple feels comfortable with my presence. That's why I'm quiet and in the background. It's not about me but for you. I'm not the one who directs the day but just documents it. I'm not a photographer who asks you to postpone, or to do things again. In short, I want to be the photographer present as a nice guest (literally and figuratively ;-)), a friend, someone who knows you and gives you all the confidence to photograph the day in a fantastic way. [Utrecht Wedding Photographer]
Passionate about the people and the stories they have to tell, becoming a portrait and wedding photographer was obvious. Through my images, I want to offer you my optimistic and joyful vision of life. I have the absolute certainty that any moment of happy life, even simple, is an important moment that deserves to be engraved in our memories. 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. It is not enough to "click on a button" or strafe no matter how it is to transcribe your feelings, your family ties, your emotions. Moments as fleeting as a tender look, a passionate kiss, a mischievous smile, a tear of joy or a burst of laughter ... That's what inspires me and fascinates me! Because what gives value to an image is its ability to immerse ourselves in the blink of an eye in past emotions, and to remind us how alive and powerful they are, whatever the time that has since passed. 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. These memories will surely have an important place among their most precious treasures. Because through these photos, it's a bit of THEIR story that they can discover ... [Paris Wedding Photographer]
I was born in 1982, Bursa. Because of my father's interest in photography, I grew up reading photo magazines and playing with twin lens machines. I was interested in photography as a hobby. First I decided to open my own business by saying textiles and then furniture photography. Now I'm one of those lucky people who love to do their job. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]
When, at the age of 18, I entered Angela Merkel’s office to present myself, I couldn’t imagine that this lady would become the most powerful woman in the world one day. Back then, I worked as a photojournalist in Bonn and Berlin, Germany and that I photographed her for an interview. At that time I also had the honor to photograph Bill Clinton, Bono Vox from U2 and many more personalities. At that time it was about the single PHOTO – now it’s about the STORY. Sometime later, at the age of 23, I met Linda. The year after we got married and since then we live happily together, we have a little house in a small town on the sea, less than two kilometers from the pub where we met the first time. We have two adorable daughters, Emma is 11, Lena is 6 and life has been very good to me. One day, a friend of mine asked me to photograph his brother’s wedding. That was the moment when I discovered what I would do with love and passion over the next years. Every weekend I’m traveling not only Liguria and Tuscany but all Italy, Europe, and the world capturing much more than just the exchange of the rings or a signature under the register. It’s about the story of a day that is truly unique in life. How often does it happen that you invite friends and families, some see each other again after many years, to celebrate a big party together? It’s the uniqueness and the joy of that day that has always touched me. I remember the first time when Emma opened our wedding album. I was observing her while she was browsing the spreads and I realized the value these photographs will have one day. That big day often is the beginning of a life together, a time capsule which you will look at all the time with joy and pride. This value is priceless. I’d like to talk to you about your wedding. [Portofino Wedding Photographer]
My photography must exceed your expectations. I laid the foundations at the Fotovakschool, I followed courses, but the most important thing: I followed my heart. I have found the perfect balance between ambition, challenge and love in my constant search for the perfect picture. My portfolio is proof of that. I want to create something. Something deep personal. I want to make the real connection with people. Being present in the unconditional love that two people feel for each other. Capturing it, it is a homage that gives me unbridled energy. ['s-Hertogenbosch Wedding Photographer]
Born in France, grown between Portugal and Switzerland. As a kid I wanted to become an architect and as an architecture student I wanted to work somewhere in between architecture and photography. Near the end of the course I bought my first dSLR, and as a photo-amateur started shooting in the streets. I worked some time as an architect, then as an architectural photographer and later, by accident, I made my first wedding reportage. A year later I decided to give more attention to that empathy I felt with this area and, together with Raquel, my life companion, initiated "menino conhece menina" (in English it means BOY MEETS GIRL), a project over which we would shoot others boys and girls that love each other. Since then this work and this profession has been increasingly contagious and today we dedicate ourselves in full time to observe the happy lives that seek for our photos. As a wedding photographer I found my expression in the emotions of the people I photograph, looking for an approach emotionally genuine and documental. [Porto Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Annie and I'm a hopeless romantic! I've loved weddings all my life and been obsessed with them since I planned my own (to Mr. Kheffache, by the way, my maiden name is far less exotic!). I've also loved photography all my life so I'm doing my dream job. I used to be a lawyer with a photography dream until one day I took the plunge, gave up law and started living the dream of being a documentary wedding photographer in Ireland. [Dublin Wedding Photographer]
My name is Matouš Bárta and I’m a wedding photographer. I have not been one ever since and I did not dream of becoming one when I was six. Nor did dream of becoming a dustman. The future lay ahead of me in the great unknown, and it was the right way. My dear father, just like almost everyone at that time, used to take and develop photographs in our bathroom. For me this ritual was an inseparable part of my childhood. Sometimes I would join my father in the red dusk and watch pictures appear under the magnifier, which used to belong to my grandfather. My dad used a Zenit E – it was light sealed with carpet tape and it had to be rewind with surgical precision in order to avoid breaking the film. I used to use the very same Zenit when I started taking pictures myself at the age of fifteen with the plan to study Photography in Brno and much earlier than that I have begun observing the world around me. Now I’m twice as old, married to a great, loving wife and have two children and two cats. And I make a living as a professional photographer. To me that was something absolutely inconceivable fifteen years ago. While at school, I read a lot and attempted writing short stories. I never, however, got in it deep enough so that I would be happy with the result. Only later I found out that I do not have to be a writer in order to tell stories. All those skills that I missed while writing, I already possessed. Just in a slightly different area. Just like one can master a foreign language by learning to think in it, in the same way, through all those years I’ve been looking at and perceiving images that surrounded me, I also learned to see the world in pictures. The composition, the timing, the structure of the photography reaches me somehow subconsciously. Every wedding is different and has its unique story to tell. Every place has its own spirit and every human being changes and spices up the atmosphere with their presence. When shooting, my mind is completely clear. I don’t know what will happen and what the location will look like, all I know that I'm in there, I’m a part of it and I shall catch it in the photos. The photos, despite being still and mute, (and perhaps because of that) have the ability to capture the atmosphere and story in a completely unique way. Where I am today is the result of my life journey. The fact that you are getting married is the result of yours. I will be delighted to put into practice all I have learned in my journey in order to tell your unique story. [Prague Wedding Photographer]
I'm French wedding photographer. I do it since 2012. I'm married and I have one daughter, they are the inspiration in my life and they push my limits to be a better person and a better photographer. If I do this job, it's to feel happiness and love...I love that. there's no best job than to be a wedding photographer [Lot-et-Garonne Wedding Photographer]
Hi, my name is Marco Colonna, I live and take pictures every minute of my days. I was born in Cosenza in 1984 in a neighborhood in the city center. I define myself as a dreamer, I love to observe, I am curious and I look for simplicity. I was very young when I started to take an interest in photography, but it was the scouting experience that stimulated me and led me to cultivate this passion. With the passage of time, it has evolved, taking on the forms of a dream in which to believe. Photography has always intrigued and excited me, not only for its strong ability to convey emotions but above all for its great power to tell stories. In life as in photography, there is always something to learn so I am always looking for something new. I am fascinated by the beauty, emotions, spontaneity, and wonder that can emerge at any time of the day. I like to capture these moments with naturalness and respect because they are destined to last over time. On the day of the wedding, I tell the day as it was lived, trying to bring back the joy, love, and emotions of the spouses. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]
My name is Marion and I am in my thirties. Mother of a tribe of 4 little girls, I lived the year in parenthesis that you are living: that of your marriage! We are looking for the place that suits us, the perfect DJ, the ideal decoration, and the dress of our dreams and when after so much effort everything is ready, we hear ourselves say: "this day will pass so quickly". I was fortunate to have at my side a discreet photographer and videographer, trained in wedding photojournalism, ready to capture everything spontaneously and discreetly to allow me to obtain the most reliable memory possible of this magnificent day. A few years and a reconversion later, it is in this spirit that I set up my studio in 2014 and that today I have accompanied more than 300 couples. A constant challenge and training in training with the most recognized wedding photographers in photojournalism, Mademoiselle poses & lui is born! [Hautes-Pyrenees Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Patrick, I am a documentary wedding photographer based in Yorkshire, England. I work with my wife Hollie Mateer. Our studio is called M and G Wedding Photography and we work alongside another photographer, Matt Godman. My dad, when he was working, was an Art and Animation lecturer, art and design teacher, and freelance artist. He always had a camera with him - a Nikon F2 was his main camera, . He was a very trusting father as he let me use it from an early age. So I started taking photos from a very early age. I studied art at school and was lucky to have access to their darkroom. From school, I went to art college and then University. Though I studied fine art, I always specialised in photography. At university, I worked in many different ways, shooting landscapes, street photography, portraits. I was influenced by Adams, Eggleston, McCullin, Meyorvitz, Friedlander, Frank, Arbus, Wall. At university, I met my close friend Matt Godman. After graduation, we both started shooting weddings independently. After some years, we decided to pool our talents and experience. M and G Wedding Photography was born. In 2015 I met my wife Hollie Mateer. She joined M and G Wedding Photography in 2017. Hollie is my wife, my best friend, the best photographer I know - and the most wonderful mother. We love working together, in particular, shooting together. She continually pushes me to be a better photographer, just through her sheer talent. I still shoot images on film today - particularly on holiday or days out. Rather than taking a digital camera or using my phone, I use my Nikon F100 film camera. This restricts me to 36 images, meaning I really take time when documenting - and enjoying - moments as they happen. I became a wedding photographer because I love photography. I used to shoot more commercial work, but over time, I came to realise my real passion was wedding photography. Every wedding assignment is shot in my own style - every frame is my own. In commercial photography, though I loved the challenge of working to brief, I always felt restricted. Wedding photography allows me to express myself through image-making in the way I want to. I never seek to repeat past work and I don't work to a brief. My clients just expect me to take natural, unposed images of their day in the style I am known for. [East Yorkshire 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]
My starting point is making documentary wedding photography. I mix between the guests and I go my way unnoticed. Fine-art photography is very important for displaying your togetherness in a beautiful setting. That is how it becomes art. Posing photos can always be made, but I do that in a spontaneous way. That way I give it a cheerful twist and it does not get too fussy. I work ground-breaking, for the ultimate. This is how my passion continues to flourish. All this gives a complete picture of your wedding day, so that it becomes a document for now and for later generations. [Noord Holland Wedding Photographer]
Since I can remember, always I was attracted to various forms of artistic expression. I always had to create something. It was music and playing the guitar. It was also painting and drawing. Although my first camera I bought about 25 years ago, my professional career pushed me over a dozen years in a completely different direction. I entered the world of photography shyly as an amateur photographer. For years it was just my hobby. However, with time it absorbed me completely. First amateur reportages and working with people. Also wedding reportages. First at friends' place. Then the first payable orders. I became addicted to it and decided to take care of photography professionally. Actually, a trivial story that changed my life. During every reportage or session, I feel positive energy, which pushes me to act. Working out my own style. Now I photograph weddings at home and all over the world, and still meet new and wonderful people. Wedding photography is my passion and way of life. Since 2019 I have been a proud member of this prestigious organization. [Lodz Wedding Photographer]
Always curious and creative. I was born in a small town near Rome and graduated in Oriental languages. I love to travel and good food. A wedding by chance in Malta, one in Sicily in 2011, let me and my husband/ partner in crime Adriano begin an adventure that leads us today to have about 80 weddings a year. People appreciate us the imagination and colors that we put in our photos. With many spouses, beyond the client/photographer relationship, we become friends, confidants, and psychologists, and the honor that touches us is to know people in their year of happiness, that of marriage. We love making them important, and this makes us important too. [Syracuse Wedding Photographer]
The UK's top WPJA wedding photographer for 2016 and 2019, coming 11th worldwide in 2016 and 9th worldwide in 2019. With a background in Fine Art and qualifications from London's world-renowned University of the Arts, photography has always been a passion and I am fortunate that it is also my full-time job. Various jobs and projects including travel photojournalism in Cuba, birth photography and covering the 2005 Cannes Film Festival for French newspaper Le Monde eventually led me to documentary wedding photography, which has been my full-time career since early 2009. After almost twenty years of living in London, I now live by the beach in Kent with my husband Steve, another photographer, and our French Bulldog, Ozzy. I take on wedding commissions here in the UK and abroad. [London Wedding Photographer]
Wedding documentary photographer, Storyteller. I have always lived in the heart of Savoie, in the Alps between lake and mountain. I love living here, but the trip is for me an artistic outlet, as soon as I can, alone or with my family, I wander in various adventures around the planet nearby or very far from home. I already had several lives of a photographer: in the specialized press, companies, events, dynamic local advertising. 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. Passionate about photography since I was young, the first camera I held was my father's. Being a photographer is, for me, obvious every day, for more than 10 years as a professional. [Savoie Wedding Photographer]
My name is Boni Bonev, I was born in Svilengrad (Bulgaria) in 1970 and I live in Sofia (Bulgaria) since 1985. I am married and have two children. For the first time I touched the magic of photography when I was 7 years old, watching images appearing on a white sheet of photo paper in the darkroom of my uncle. Since then, photography has become my favorite pastime, and since 1991 with some interruptions also became a source of income. I love to paint with light, no matter if someone will pay me for it or not. Precisely for this reason, I always try to accept orders that will meet my personal preferences and understanding of photography. I like the reportage photography and the way of its making - with many unique moments caught without manipulation. I love working with natural light where possible, although I have a studio downtown in Sofia. As a founding member and administrator of the largest Bulgarian site on photography Photo Forum , I have arranged with my colleagues over 30 photographic competitions and exhibitions. Personally, I participated in many group exhibitions, and I have my own as well. They can be found in my personal site. Since I am master of science in electronics, I've always been interested in photographic equipment. I have written over 200 pages, photographic articles in print media, some of them technical. I am also the author of dozens of online tests in the Photo Forum of photographic cameras and lenses. I am coauthor of the first Bulgarian online photography tutorial "How to make better pictures with a digital camera", and the photographic book " In Focus ". Since 2005 me and my colleagues guided photographic courses in Sofia . With wedding and other commercial photography I work more intensively for several years. As you can see in my portfolio, I like clean, not manipulated photography with captured many moments, portraits and details. I love black and white photography, because it shows better real graphic pattern of light. Freed from unnecessary colors, photography remains just as volume, shape, light and storyline. I love metaphoric stories where one has to think, not just to perceive directly what he saw. I use camera with high resolution 24,5 mp and fast lenses , which re-create in better way the natural ambience of the place and minimize the introduction of artificial light. [Sofia Wedding Photographer]
Photographer in Lyon for more than 10 years with, to my credit, nearly 200 wedding reports, from the most traditional to the most whimsical, from the most intimate to the most grandiose, I realize for you with enthusiasm the best shots of this great day. I attach great importance to the transmission of memories and family heritage. This beautiful day you are preparing is a major piece of the puzzle of your life. My mission is to transcribe this special day the best I can, for you to remember with happiness and share with pride. Let me show you little details you have not seen during d-day and that will make the difference. [Lyon Wedding Photographer]
I have been documenting weddings for 15 years and have shot more than 600 weddings. My love for creating images has captured memories that will last a lifetime for many satisfied couples. On average I photograph around 25 weddings a year both in the UK and abroad. I have photographed weddings as far afield as America and Brazil. I started photographing weddings in 2004. My local market at that time had very few wedding photographers working in Devon, and so with little to no experience of photography, I embarked on a 1-year intensive training course. After this course, I set up my own business, but have continued with my training. I regularly attend workshops in America and have also been a speaker at many of these, educating today's up and coming photographers. I have have had the pleasure of photographing the weddings of James Corden, Joe Hart, and Darren Bent. Outside of photography I am a keen cyclist and have cycled to Amsterdam from London raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. I am a husband to Anita and father to Dillon and Max. [Devon Wedding Photographer]
Hello there. I’m Tom, a documentary wedding photographer from Cambridgeshire, UK. I took up photography while traveling in New Zealand a few years ago and have been working as a wedding photographer since 2016, covering weddings across the UK and from Kent to The Lake District. Away from photography, my hobbies include playing the guitar & drums, listening to a lot of classic rock, and pretty much any music from my teenage years in the 1990s. I'm rather addicted to The Simpsons (classic seasons only, mind you) and don't function in the morning until I've downed a coffee. I'm a bit of a night owl, my productive hours are 6 pm to 2 am. I love to travel. I've been across South East Asia, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and spent three months driving from coast to coast in the USA. [Cambridge Wedding Photographer]
My name is Todor Rusinov and I was born in Lom, Bulgaria. I live and work in Sofia since 2003. I have a master degree in Marketing. I have been into photography since I was 15 and my first professional engagements started in 2009. This is also the year I "ventured" to photograph an entire wedding event on my own. From this moment onward, wedding photography became a way of thinking for me, joy and maybe - a destiny. I have always striven for building up my stories with captured moments, fully like reporting. I don't like the forged photography, the adjusted moments, posing and the deep image retouch. The magic of photography, for me, lays within the genuinely captured moment, transformed into eternity. [Sofia Wedding Photographer]
After my personal experience as a bride, telling in pictures about this wonderful moment in the life of a couple who believes in love, mutual trust, and complicity has become my personal "mission". So I ventured into this difficult and complex world, but I immediately understood that wedding photography is an artistically vast, complete and always stimulating field. I admit that I love marriages so much because they bring out the best in people, they are rich with various emotions and the surprise is always around the corner. For this reason, above all, I love the authenticity of moments because magic happens just when you are simply yourself, together with the most important people in your life: real moments that come to life in a completely natural way. People who love me think that I'm cheerful, ironic, genuine and sincere. It's vital for me to spend my free time with the people I love, chat with friends about everything and anything until the most unlikely hours; I love the warm colours of nature in autumn and the summer light; my favourite colour is blue in all its shades. I am passionate about films and TV series that, in addition to entertaining and telling beautiful stories, can teach a lot about photography. Even if I don't have a favourite genre, I listen to a lot of music, a passion that is part of me since I can remember. [Trieste Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Loïc Bourniquel from the south of France. I've been a wedding photographer for 5 years. I did communication studies then I started to travel the world: England, Slovakia, Poland, and Canada. I used to have different jobs in each country in order to make friends and understand the way of life in each place. For most, I discovered photography during my travels so I started exploring this side of my creativity. Then I moved back to the south of France and became a manager in an Irish pub for 8 years. It was a great experience as well, organize concerts, and different kinds of events, meet people, create a good atmosphere with the staff and our clients ... After that I wanted to make my passion a job, so I became a pro photographer. In the beginning, I wasn't really interested in the wedding because of the traditional images I had in my mind, but I tried and I found a totally different experience than I expected. A much better one. Photographing emotions, funny moment,s or strong ones. Photographing humanity with total freedom and make great and original pictures was a total privilege. Now I m a wedding photographer but I do a bit of portraits and street photography for myself. I would say that my style is photojournalist/storyteller. But I still do a few nice portraits for couples. I m not only a photographer I'm also a wedding helper. I always do my best for the couples to make sure they have a great and memorable wedding. I capture relationships, small and big moments, emotions, love, and everything I find interesting. I have a lot of wittiness I love funny moment or scene. Hope I'll meet you soon Regards Loïc [Tarn Wedding Photographer]

I fell in love with the moments I saw through my lens…this is the reason that makes me become a visual storyteller. Back to the very first step, my shooting journey has begun with techniques and shooting tips like everyone who loves taking photos. Practices…trainings…lessons…are my daily life since I was a student of architecture and design. My shooting passion also drove me to live and learn in London which gives me opportunities to explore the perspective of my lens. Step by step throughout the journey in London, I got a chance to work with the leading professional photographer of wedding photojournalist of the UK. My chance also wide opened for the fashion shoot. It’s come with opportunities which let me explore more on the photography road map to work with leading magazines and do advertising photoshoot for the famous brands in various industries. During the time, I also had chances to do portrait photography for individuals, couples, families, friends. I’ve learned a lot more about how to capture the very touchy-feely moments from portrait shooting. I am still learning from every shot that I take to continue my visual storytelling journey. For me, all chances were not just a chance, they were significant experiences that have made me believe that a photographer is an engaged storyteller who has a trained, creative, and talented eye to see a photographic opportunity and make a decision for the moment. With the strong feeling and belief that every moment is precious and perfect in itself, I wish I will put myself more engaged in demonstrating the moments like creating genuine art…to tell the story from time to time Today, it’s more than 10 years of shooting experience, there is ONE THING that I’ve found. This ONE THING has never changed, and this ONE THING makes me believe in what I do and make me be who I am. This ONE THING is THE TRUE MOMENT. It is real. It happens only once. It stays forever. Therefore, for me, a perfect photo is a capture of the TRUE MOMENT which will keep and tell the story. TRUE MOMENT is my inspiration for shooting every single photo. It’s not just a shooting style…it’s beyond a signature…it is my honest to capture the once in a lifetime moment that I fell in love since the beginning and I will continue my journey as a man who loves capturing the moments.

For the record, I was 5 years old in my father's photo studio. One could say that my vocation was all found. Very small the first time I developed photos B & W with him I exclaimed "Wow, it's magic, I want to do it as a job! " To see an image appear softly on white paper was incredible. However, I followed web and cinema studies that brought me a visual and graphic baggage and I finally returned to my first love and I'm a photographer since 2011. [Haute-Garonne Wedding Photographer]

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. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. COVERING WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND ABROAD Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St Andrews, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few.

Hello, I define myself as a wedding photographer who seeks to capture the key moments of weddings, with a documentary spirit and an artistic perspective. I've been a full-time wedding photographer since 2012. I'm always trying to be an organic part of your wedding. I focus on not only beautiful moments but all strong emotions. Apart from wedding photography, I am working on my master thesis about documentary photography and my personal photography and videography projects. I'm living in İstanbul, Turkey, I am ready to travel all over the world. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]
I believe that, your wedding photographs should show more than how beautiful you look at your wedding. They should remind you what you live and feel on that day. My mission on each wedding is; - to produce meaningful, evocative photographs that focus on the precious moments - to help your future self remember the true story of your wedding, and possibly tell it to your generations - to make you feel, when you look at the photographs, like you are there and then again With that mission in mind, I have been photographing weddings since 2006. I am usually the closest person to the couple through their wedding day, yet I manage to stay unobtrusive, leading them only when they require me to. Most of my couples seem to forget about my presence as the day unfolds, which yields to those unexpected, relaxed, "in-the-moment" images. Currently I live in Istanbul with my wife, and my son who, after all these years, helped me realize why I love photographing weddings; it is because I am creating images for my couples that they and their grandkids will not just love to look at, but will also find touching and meaningful, even after many years. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]

Things I love the most are; my son Semih, my boyfriend, nature / being outside, a positive mindset, a latte macchiato, and chocolate!

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 Simone, an elopement and wedding photographer based in Tuscany! I was born in Florence and I was fortunate enough to grow up in this city. As a boy, I was fascinated by all the art surrounding me which has influenced my photography. Now I live in a small village in the Tuscan countryside between Florence, Siena, and Arezzo, with my beautiful wife Katherine and my little dog Greta. I think of myself as a dreamer and a traveler, with an introspective and joyful attitude. It is important for me to portray your emotions, that of the guest and various emotions perceived throughout the day together with my sentiments and feelings. What is my goal? My goal is to tell through wedding photography what you feel in those moments, to capture the emotions of both the couple and the guest. I try to give with my photographs something emotional, beyond the simple technique. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]
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]
I discovered photography in my life even while attending Business Administration at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in 2011, and it changed my life completely. Before that I never imagined having my own company let alone registering such intense feelings from other people and thus making a difference in their lives through my eyes. Regardless of the type of event being a wedding, graduation, family photo, I always try to tell these stories in a unique and personal way, creating a connection between my photography and the lifestyle of the people being photographed. I want to connect with people who identify with my way of being and think about photography, and create a tool to build a more authentic relationship between people with the same tune. Wedding photographer? I consider myself to be one of life's documentary photographers. I give myself body, soul and heart to document all events with the same intensity, attention and care possible, be they small and intimate, a few miles from my house, or, immense on the other side of the world. [Porto Alegre Wedding Photographer]
I’ve had a camera in my hand since I can remember. On family vacations each of us had a camera and would come back with several rolls of film. It was great to see different perspectives of the same place. My photos became more refined throughout my childhood as I graduated to my stepdad’s Minolta film SLR. As a teenager and self professed “scene-kid” my interests turned to boys, music and books so my photos changed as well. I would deck myself out in black eyeliner weekly to shoot photographs of my favorite musicians. Bands are still one of my favorite photo subjects by the way, so be prepared if you get me started talking about them. In college I dedicated myself to photography professionally with a degree in photojournalism, then found my calling with a wedding studio at 19. I’ve since been published in Paste and XLR8R print magazines as well as Billboard Online, Tahoe Unveiled, Borrowed and Blue, The Knot, and Wedding Wire Blogs. On a more personal note, I’m a former Michigander who has called north Lake Tahoe her home since October 2011. I still miss Michigan beer (the best in the world, don’t argue), cherries, pasties (savory meat pies found in the UP) and warm nights but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere but Tahoe. I’m fascinated by all the quirky, wild, backwoods parts of America and I’m only missing four states on my quest to 50; Oklahoma, New Mexico, Maine and Alaska. I love all things outdoors. I hike or mountain bike almost every day with my Irish Wolfhound/Greyhound mix, Lindy and my big crazy Great Dane Captain. I also love to ski (badly), SUP and kayak, and volunteer with Achieve Tahoe. When I’m not shooting, sleeping or eating popcorn, I’m probably with my husband of almost one year, Keegan! [Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer]
Ray Anthony Iavasile is the owner of Ray Anthony Photography in Birmingham, Michigan. He began photographing weddings in Los Angeles, California in 1992, but his love and passion for his documentary style of photographing weddings began clicking for him in the early 2000s when he traded in his Bronica medium format cameras for faster Canon 35mm SLR's. The change opened the door to shoot a lot more candid-style photos than ever before. This ignited a passion in him to redirect his focus entirely to photographing weddings from beginning to end as a documentary style wedding photographer, or as a wedding photojournalist. By 2004, with the acquisition of his first professional digital camera, there was no turning back. He began developing an authentic style of capturing the "decisive moment" and has since become an expert at documenting the unfolding story of the couple's wedding day. For the last four years running with WPJA, Ray has ranked as one of the Top 150 wedding photojournalists in the world, once in the Top 100 and twice ranking in the Top 50. In 2019, Ray's success has seen him climb to the #7 wedding photojournalist in North America, and #28 in the world. When Ray is commissioned to photograph a wedding, he truly believes it’s his job to photograph the “complete story” of that day! He is so sincere with this idea, that he even provides "unlimited coverage" on the wedding day, photographing from the early morning until the end of the night! Ray doesn’t want to miss a single moment! Ray Anthony Iavasile earned his BA Degree at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. The Ray Anthony Photography showroom has been located in Birmingham, Michigan since 2005 and Ray has become the premier wedding photojournalist in all of Michigan. Though most of his weddings are photographed in the Metro Detroit area, he has photographed weddings extensively in California as well as Florida, Boston, New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas. Ray is always willing to travel to destinations around the world. He is also an underwater photographer and would love to photograph a wedding under the sea! [Detroit Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Ronnie, born and grown up in Hong Kong, a tiny spot on our planet where 'East meets West'~ I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job, and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic technique and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding photography. Since then, I was lucky enough to cover weddings not only in Hong Kong, but also in Germany, Australia and China, with couples from various countries including France, Netherlands, Canada, South Korea and more. It's not an easy ride for sure, but I am glad that I have came through all these years and my love of wedding photojournalism simply grows with time! Besides photography, I'm a travelholic, although there are so many wonderful places yet for me to discover. Just like wedding photojournalism, I will never get bored of it! [Hong Kong Wedding Photographer]

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Dear Martin You have enriched our wedding in so many ways. Back then, you introduced yourself to the words that on that day, you will not be "just" our wedding photographer, but also friend and guest at the same time. And you were so much more for us that day. Throughout the day, you helped us with advice, action and camera. Again and again we were asked by our guests how long we have known each other, and again and again we earned incredulous looks when we said we see each other the second time today. And so not only we, but also all our guests, both of you as a human being, as well as of your photographic skills were completely thrilled. You've captured this unforgettable day forever from start to finish in so many beautiful moments, and that's priceless. Christina and Thomas
The photos we received were absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I could not have been happier with them, which is saying something because she hates all photos of herself. Also, we had some unexpected snow and freezing weather, but you made sure to make the outdoor shots as painless as possible. The snow ended up looking stunning in the photos too, so that was a silver lining. You're definitely a great photographer with a more artistic touch to your photos as well.
Dear Salvo ... I really want to thank you ... once again for the immense gift you gave us ... light flames ... fixed on paper ... This is .... Yet very few can capture feeling, tension, emotion, like you ... giving it to you forever .... We were very lucky to meet you! ... ... In the whirlwind of anxiety and worries that precede marriage ... fear of not finding who would interpret our desires to the fullest ... who would not trivialize such an important moment, standardizing it like so many or almost all photographers who make their art just a job ... We discovered you by chance ... electrocuted by one of your photos on display outside your studio ... on a hot May day .... leaving us entranced by the "Sicilian" that transmitted that image ... .. We had no doubts ... it was what we wanted for our wedding! ... you were really !!

We were looking for the one photographer that could make our memories deathless, but in the most natural way. We wanted a photographer that could capture: 1) natural moments in an artistic way, but without editing the photographs too much 2) fantastic smiles and laughs 3) funny dance moves 4) the joy in our, and our friends and families eyes 5) the touchy feelings in our body language 6) us posing without making us uncomfortable in the situation 7) our story and culture, that is pretty mixed Ufuk, you did ALL of this and BEYOND what we would imagine! You are a warm, humble and trustworthy human being, and a fantastic photographer! We are unbelievably thankful! Thank you for coming to Cyprus! We will NEVER forget it! We see a friend in you now, and we want you to know that you are welcome to Norway any time!
Sergio, I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done. You made our entire wedding experience unforgettable. Of course we knew you were a fantastic photographer but working with you was better than I could have ever imagined. You made us feel so comfortable, confident and special. From the bottom of my heart, thank you ❤ These photos are stunning. We can’t stop looking at them. I will never forget how incredible our day was because of you.
Hello Salvo, how are you? I wanted to thank you for the gift you gave us, the photos are wonderful and the effect they have on those who see them is spectacular. There are those who are moved, someone came the goosebumps ... in short, a hit! Telling a good story is a challenge. If, then, it is a love story and you have to tell it through images, the challenge becomes interesting and important. Accept this challenge with elegance, privacy and professionalism. Through your shots, you find yourself waiting anxiously for the arrival of the bride, to move you when you meet the gaze of a happy mother, to laugh with gusto, to taste the delights of the table, to smile gently when the couple look at each other lovers. Every picture is a surprise that makes you curious to discover the next one. It is marvel in the pure state. And, when you get to the last picture, you're satisfied at the end of a wonderful day. Telling a beautiful love story is a challenge you face by creating an intimate masterpiece for your spouses. We can only say thank you again, thanks sincerely and wholeheartedly. See you soon. Chiara and Gianluca.
We are so happy we hired you to photograph our wedding day. When we saw samples of your work on your website we were certain you could deliver what we wanted, but the actual results completely exceeded our expectations. We love the lighting, colours and framing in every photo. The candid shots during our wedding breakfast are wonderful, particularly during the speeches – they really take me back to those moments. We felt comfortable with you throughout the day and loved your ideas for a photo session roaming around Prague to make use of the stunning picturesque backgrounds. The city is so close to my heart and is captured forever as a main player of one of the most special days in my life. Speaking of special days – we gave birth to our beautiful daughter last November and would love to have you take some photos of her when we’re next in Prague! Keep up the good work. We will always recommend you to anyone who needs an approachable, competent, professional and fantastically talented photographer.
The photos are beautiful!! We are crying! Also I just want to say thank you all photos and for your presence on the day. We LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Now that we have a little distance from the wedding, we feel like it all went perfectly and the photographs captured it so well! We feel really thankful. And also because a lot of people from Canada couldn't come, they are a perfect way to share a very happy day with them :)
We met with other photographers about a year ago, but they were either too aggressive or too passive and all fairly cliche. Not so with you. It's true that when we met you, we appreciated your laid-back vibe and promise that you wouldn't ask Sarah to stare plaintively out a window. But we didn't know you were masterful until we saw our engagement photos. We love the candidness and joy, even silliness, and the art. The shot of us standing in the Logan Square train vestibule, our illuminated backs to the lens, slightly elevated, with our reflection catching the opposite Plexiglas wall, behind which a sea of blues and purples bathe us is still Charles' desktop background. Your reconnaissance and eye for perfect light combined with your ease in assembling children and adults, we're sure, proved the right balance to allow us to enjoy the celebration while documenting it for perpetuity. Thank you for visiting parks weeks beforehand and getting in the mix - whether in a hot glass-blowing studio or nearly crushed in the center of the Hora - the day of. You're a trooper.
Dearest Giampiero and friend, a few months later we continue to rediscover nuances in "Quel" day lived, but sometimes elusive in front of the overwhelming vivacity of certain memories. We want, even today, to express our sincere gratitude for having been able to reveal, through your shots, the intensity of those pulsations of life that will always remain fixed in the heart. You managed to make your photos not only the image of the time portrayed in the instant in which it stops, but the story of the flavors, colors, thoughts, joys and feelings of the most profound protagonists of that day become an inextinguishable companion of the our life. We are grateful to you for putting your passion at your service, even before your work, narrating in pictures our most beautiful memory, the story of our life. The wish is for a goodbye in others and future shots of life ... !!! Simply Thanks. Paolo and Valeria
Gaelle, you have magnified the photos of the couple despite the very rainy weather. We are delighted with the result and very grateful for your professionalism. You are an excellent photographer who captures emotions. We will recommend you!
