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]
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.

Valeria Berti has inherited from her father the passion for photography. It all started when she was ten years old and got in her hands an analogical Nikon. This passion has grown over time, becoming her job, keeping alive and developing nevertheless love for photography which was driving her from her youngest age. She is also a graphic designer and loves the extreme artisanal care of her photos’ post-production. Her approach to wedding photography is a reportage-based one, as she loves seizing spontaneous situations with a smart and fresh style. “I love to capture the story of your wedding with my heart first of all and then with my camera, to be able to relive it even after many years”, says Valeria. Her photography tells your story in a sincere and elegant way; a story in pictures, which stops the most beautiful memories and emotions of your marriage and your life with photography. Her way of photographing is absolutely natural, spontaneous, emotional and creative. “Photographs are our memory over time when our memories begin to get lost in the passing of time.” She firmly believes in this sentence. Although Padua is her home, she often works in Venice, also covering weddings throughout Italy and internationally. [Padua Wedding Photographer]
Undoubtedly being a wedding photographer has turned out to be my greatest passion ever. I have fallen in love with capturing the emotion and spirit of the most special day and the more I am getting involved, the greater excitement I feel. Being entirely devoted to what I am shooting, sometimes I am getting concerned that my enthusiasm is overwhelming and even exceeding my limits. I would rather go for the unique moment and its timeless emotion than direct or prepare the scene to achieve a fabulous image. By presenting the authenticity of the wedding story I believe you will easily feel the spirit of the wedding event. It is my ambition to be recognized as the wedding photographer whose images provoke tears and smiles over and every time one looks back at the wedding album. [Ruse Wedding Photographer]
I was born in Luanda, Africa, and I lived there until I was 10 years old, a time when I moved to Portugal. I've started my career working as a designer and web designer in an advertising company, but quickly I noticed that I was missing a very important part of my nature - to be connected to people and all the emotions related. I then studied the direction of photography and worked for a while in TV, fiction, advertising, as well as contributing as a freelancer photographer in different agencies. Since then, I've been connected and inspired by different people, places, and cultures, by a simple smile, a color, or just with mother nature in its state of the art. I work professionally in the wedding industry for more than 12 years, on behalf of Laranja Metade [Half Orange] brand, as a parallelism to those looking for their soul mate (the half part). In the past years more as Destination Wedding Photographer. I want to be true and honest when I document a wedding. To observe and write creatively all the feelings related to the key and unexpected moments, in a natural way. I will be honoured to embrace this journey with you. [Lisbon Wedding Photographer]

A style recognized by one of the most prestigious trade associations, the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), of which it is an official member.

Photographing the naturalness of what is happening to add a touch of charm and elegance, this is Alessandro Arena Photographer. [Varese 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]
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 [Albi 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]
I was born in Milan in 1980, my father worked in Associated Press and from the first day of my life I breathed news photography, so obviously when I had to choose which high school to attend I chose photography. After the study I worked for a few years as a printer in a black and white dark room. In 2003, tired of printing photos of others, I quit my job and I started working as an assistant for several photographers. In 2007 I opened my business and I dedicated myself to wedding photography, I immediately tried to offer a service as spontaneous as possible, convinced that over the years the couple will want to find on their album the people to them care, and not pages of portraits of the spouses. For the rest I read a lot of books, I play the electric guitar badly and try to dedicate my time to the important people of my life. [Brescia Wedding Photographer]
I am a wedding/family photographer that photographs honestly, without bulky lighting systems or assistants. As a wedding reportage photographer, I observe and capture the genuine moments, real emotions and reactions. I'm taking pictures for over 15 years now but I've been shooting weddings for 10 years. [Hasselt Wedding Photographer]
My name is Federico Pannacci, I’m a professional wedding photographer and lifestyle. I really love to fly and live in tuscany with my mate, my daughter and my red cat ( Spritz! ). I never liked my image on the mirror, I never felt my shape as something of photogenic, for these reason I met photography, it was the way to study how to express the shape of the life in the same way my heart and mind felt it. This is the reason why my photography is genuine and natural but contaminated from a dreamy and artistic trend. [Siena Wedding Photographer]
I'm a wedding photographer based in Venice Italy but I work all over Italy and abroad. I've been working in the wedding industry for the past ten years and I love what I do, I love to capture the happiest moments of my client's life and being part of all of that! My style is called "wedding reportage" or "wedding photojournalism" which means that I avoid static poses and I prefer to catch the real moments and even if I'll be with bride and groom for the entire wedding, they won't notice me. This way they can act normally without feeling weird in front of a camera. [Venice 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]
I started shooting weddings in 2010, it was the beginning of my new documentary vision and wedding's reportages. It was for me as a revelation! Indeed, we can shoot weddings and document what's really happening during the whole day from the preparation to the dance floor. I love traveling and discovering different places. I shoot all around the world for my personal work with a medium format film camera (Bhutan, Oman, Nepal, Guatemala, Morocco, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Indonesia and many other countries in Europe). Creating, discovering and meeting new people is very important to me. My approach is humanistic and passionate, that's why wedding documentary makes sense for me. [Lyon Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I’m Jenny, a UK documentary wedding photographer living by the sea in West Sussex. I’m passionate about capturing moments, and can happily people-watch for hours, camera in hand. My version of your wedding story is created through emotion, how you felt as you said your vows, the interactions of family and friends, the tears of joy and the laughter. I’m friendly and relaxed and pride myself on being unobtrusive and making everyone feel at ease. In a former life, I’ve been an assistant editor, marketing consultant and trust fundraiser for a homeless persons charity. A 5-year move to America with my family gave me the perfect opportunity to turn my hobby into my dream career. Twelve years on, I still get excited about each and every wedding I become a part of, and challenge myself creatively to capture truly unique images for every single one of my couples. I’m a real foodie with a love of travel and when I’m not creating wedding memories, enjoy nothing more than exploring new places with my husband and our two talented and funny teenagers. And home wouldn’t be home without Einstein and Echo, our playful British Blue Shorthair cats. So that’s a bit about me. If I sound like your kind of person, please get in touch - I’d love to know a bit about you and the person you’re planning to spend the rest of your life with. [West Sussex Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Alessia and I'm an Italian wedding photographer in Tuscany! Talking about my biography has always seemed a bit "presumptuous", because, unlike many photographers, I have never attended famous and expensive photography schools, but I have learned through experience, trying and experimenting with everything, while attending university and working to gain my much-needed journalist's card. Born in 1977, graduated in communication, with a strong predisposition to visual culture, always fascinated by the art of photography and the ability to tell stories with the unique power of images. My photographic debut took place very early when on the occasion of my first communion, my parents gave me a fantastic polaroid, a "magic box" that allowed me to discover all that was interesting in front of me, simply putting the reality on a film. And since that moment I have never stopped working in photography, also starting to study the technique in the manuals that adults passed to me and photographing everything that passed under my nose. In the following years then, I switched to various analogue reflex cameras and finally to digital ones after 2005, the year in which I opened my first photographic studio in Siena. Over the years, my passion for reportage photography then led me to become a wedding photojournalist, starting to work both in Tuscany and in many of the most beautiful Italian wedding locations. I currently live in Siena, in the heart of beautiful Tuscany, working as a Siena Wedding Photographer, with the ambition of becoming an exclusive Wedding Photographer in Tuscany and throughout Italy, Over the years, thanks to my work as a wedding photographer in Tuscany, I have learned to know very well all the most beautiful and renowned wedding locations in my area: Siena, San Gimignano, San Galgano, Pienza, Montepulciano, Florence, Arezzo, Cortona, the Crete Senesi, the Chianti hills and the Val d'Orcia, places where getting married is truly something unique and unforgettable. Given my inclination as a storyteller, my photographic style is purely journalistic, which leads me to follow every event almost on tiptoe and in the most discreet way possible, then returning an emotionally well-marked and chronologically well-ordered photographic story. And this is the main reason why, from the first contact, I try to establish a relationship of trust and confidence with the spouses, in order to create a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that allows me to work at my best by creating a spontaneous photo story and images full of meaning and feeling. And to create this relationship of trust, before the wedding photoshoot, I generally propose to my spouses an engagement photoshoot in Tuscany, a free and peaceful photo session that is always useful for both parties, to become familiar with the lens, arriving at the wedding day with a certain harmony As a wedding photographer in Tuscany I work mainly in the area between Siena and Florence and I am always available for Intimate Weddings, Couple Photography, Family Photography, Romantic Engagement and Elopement in the most beautiful wedding destinations in Tuscany, but also moving throughout Italy to reach other magical Italian wedding locations, such as Lake Como, Venice and the Amalfi Coast, because traveling and meeting interesting people is what makes me love my job the most! In fact, in addition to photography and in addition to an immeasurable passion for all types of cats, traveling and always knowing new cultures is one of my greatest passions, because I am convinced that continuous knowledge is a way to grow personally and in the end, the greatest wealth that an individual can have! (about cats ... if you see me with some hair on my clothes, know that I have five!) Today I can therefore say that I am very lucky to be a Wedding Photographer in Tuscany, because I love this job and because it is the job that I have always wanted to do, growing day by day with my immense passion to tell the different love stories of people who they chose me as the narrator of their most beautiful day. So if you like my style do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to tell your love story! [Siena Wedding Photographer]
I’m Caroline Elenbaas live in Heijningen a small village near Rotterdam. I studied at the Fotovakschool in Rotterdam and finished it in 2008. Then I started my own photography business, it happened to come across wedding photography and this soon became a big passion. Capturing all the beautiful moments is never boring. Documentary photography gives a lot of satisfaction. I really like to catch all the special things, because later I realise it become precious moments. [Noord Brabant Wedding Photographer]
Photographer and mother of two beautiful children, Leonardo and Emily. I love people and through the lens I try to grasp the essence and uniqueness of each subject. I consider myself very privileged to be able to capture moments in people’s lives and freeze them to last in time. After attending a year's photographic course in London I decided to stay for another 7 years in England, working and experimenting with my camera. I now live in Italy in a small city called Varese where I was born near the beautiful Italian lake district. Since 2008 I have been part of a team of photographers and video makers who help me developing all the time. Even now I am searching and learning! [Varese Wedding Photographer]
Simone Bacci was born in Arezzo in the October of 1975. His first camera is a Kodak Disc 4000 that whilst used during school tours for normal shoots, got Simone interested into photography. With this ‘curiosity’ aside, Simone carried on many international travels on work in the leisure sector. It is during one of these last business journeys that he met a person who relight his curiosity. From curiosity to profession with the main factor being passion. After attending several classes and workshops, most of these focusing on wedding and ceremonies photography, in 2007 he opens his first professional studio.His first jobs are full of enthusiasm but turned off by a formal approach to weddings, with static and posing pictures.Feeling himself embarrassed by being photographed, Simone develops the attitude to feel in the shoes of the couples in front of him during one of their most important day in life. He therefore changes direction, leaving the couples free to do what they prefer, aiming at capturing their emotions in a fully natural manner delivering a reportage oriented approach to weddings. This is how his stories are born. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]
When I received a photography course from my great love, I didn't know how great that gift actually was. It taught me to look, I see with different eyes and my smile is wider than any camera can be. Being part of human lives, being allowed to watch love and comfort. It's like photographing from the air, it makes you float with pride. The love for photography started with that gift, then my interest expanded to the field of wedding photography with a traineeship at Eppel Photography. Making those special photos for you is what makes me excited! [Gelderland Wedding Photographer]
Hi I’m Ash Davenport from Miki Photography, an international award winning Wedding Photographer in London but covering the whole of the UK. I specialise in a blend of relaxed and creative portraits and a documentary approach to capturing weddings. So if I were to try and describe my style in three words it would be, LOVE, FUN & STYLE. LOVE – For me that’s what a wedding is primarily about, and what I'm trying to capture the essence of: two people who love each other enough to say that they want to spend the rest of the lives together, surrounded by all the people most important to them. FUN – Whether it be joy, happiness, or laughter I want your images to resonate with real emotions. So relax be yourselves, and just enjoy it – and then allow the pictures to reflect that. Don’t worry I be mostly blending into the day capturing it all as it all unfolds. No fake smiles, no saying cheese and no looking at the camera. Just awesome imagery of people being themselves with real relaxed expressions. STYLE – I always strive to make you both 'look good’ especially in the parts of the day where I get to spend a few moments with you and hopefully produce some pictures you’ll be proud of and happy to show your friends and make them go 'WOW’. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, I’d love to hear from you. [London Wedding Photographer]
I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. Preferring to capture your day as it happens, I love working with couples who want to relax and enjoy their wedding day and not have to pose for photo after photo. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions! [Norfolk-UK Wedding Photographer]
One of the most touching things about wedding photography is how quickly you find yourself thrown into the heart of such an important, intimate occasion. It's a responsibility only a fool would take lightly. I take great care to behave appropriately but with a sense of cheerful fun and enthusiasm for what I do. I tend to prefer working alone as it's far easier to melt into the day and being unobtrusive is key to getting honest reportage photography. I aim to photograph as a reaction to what is happening around me, rather than be the cause of it. People rarely look lovelier than when they are simply being themselves. I always like to meet clients in advance, for the sake of both parties. It's important to be familiar with your photographer's approach as well as their portfolio. Your choice is a very personal one and identifying the style you're after will ensure you're happy with the results. As a sole trader, I always take the lead from my client and aim to be as flexible with my services as I can. I air any concerns at an early stage if I feel there is a discrepancy between the services I provide and my client's brief. I first became interested in taking photos when I was 11 years old. Within a year I had my hands on a Russian Zenith 122 - a tank of a camera! I then unearthed an antique enlarger inside a broom cupboard at school and persuaded the headmaster to set us up with some chemicals and paper. This was all a great help in developing a disciplined approach to photography. By 17 I had upgraded to Nikon 35mm and Pentax medium format outfits. I was invited to photograph the wedding of my art teacher's daughter and took the plunge. Thankfully it turned out rather well and in the last decade I've photographed over 160 weddings and civil partnerships in the UK and Europe. At 18, I studied film production at the Bournemouth Screen Academy and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Film Production. Film is my other passion and I've continued to make promos and award winning shorts for festivals since graduating. While studying, I taught photography part time at Bryanston School and made use of the excellent photographic facilities at university. My photography and film work go hand in hand as visual art forms for telling and documenting narratives. I was rather a late adopter of digital photography. I wasn't interested in the latest technology for the sake of something shiny and new but felt that by 2005 the resolution and sensitivity in low light was a sufficient improvement on the available film stocks. On average I've upgraded my main outfit every 3 years and my current crop of top end Nikon cameras and lenses have given me unbridled freedom, particularly in low light conditions. Because I spend the time mastering the density, contrast, colour and sharpness of my pictures in post production, most of my results are indistinguishable from film. My guiding principle is that if an effect wouldn't be achieved in the dark room, it's best to avoid it on the computer! Garish effects may bring something to a lackluster picture but they also date quickly. A good picture has no need for such embellishment. Consequently my work retains a quality that will, I hope, stand the test of time. I grew up in Hampshire, Dorset & South Wales and often visit family & friends in all three. I live and work in North London. [London Wedding Photographer]
When I photographed my first wedding, at that very moment I was amazed by the explosion of all the emotions you can experience in one day altogether! Over the years of photographing weddings and elopements, I developed my personal style and taste. After trying different approaches to wedding photography, I fell in love with documenting weddings. I adore all those unexpected and special moments that can be captured and turned into memories. Along of developing my personal wedding photography style, I also became a strong believer you should enjoy your wedding day and this is what also made me become a documentary-style wedding photographer. What gives me the passion to photograph weddings? The answer is easy - every wedding is unique and I always have a chance to learn about different cultures and traditions. I see myself as a relaxed and respectful wedding photographer. We live here and now - celebrating love of two people deserves to be captured in the most candid way. [London Wedding Photographer]
I have the restless mind of those who have dreams and desires hidden among the stars. The first thing I clearly remember is when at the age of 6 I started to draw copying from a Mickey Mouse comic book. From then my entire life has been linked to visual art. I've always been a stubborn person, this has led my life through good and bad decisions until in 2008 I decided to become a photographer. My first passion anyway has always been music, my mother and father are two rock 'n' roll souls who gave me good ears and the chance to express myself with the things I love the most. When I started shooting pictures, I started from music. I've been following local bands, gigs, and festivals for years, I've worked (I still am) in recording studios as photographer/videomaker. There never been a single day without listening at least one song in my life. Little by little I entered into the wedding business, which is my main activity since 2012. I'm a lifetime daydreamer, a romantic soul who still believes in good simple things such an eye-contact, a hug or a moment of silence staring at a warm sunset. I search for the truth hidden in one of those moments, taking pictures for me means capturing a moment between two moments, and giving it to eternity, stopping time. I think to myself as a free astronaut, a cosmonaut who sails aimlessly and relentlessly in the sidereal space of his thoughts and curiosities. I live among the stars. [Naples 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]
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]
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]
I’m wedding photographer, I live in Italy but I travel often for weddings. Tell me where you’ll be declaring your love, and I’ll be there. I’m looking forward to giving you a photography experience that is filled with creativity, laughter, and romance! I still believe in fairy tales and a true believer that there is nothing better in life than a real love. I love my work and take pictures, I'm grateful to be living my dream! Capturing an image which is unique, tangible, and fills the viewer with a sense of joy is just one of my many goals in working with you. I start making photos about 10 years ago, making the experience in this work with other photographers in Wedding and all kind of events. Since more than 4 years I work by myself! I am based on Lake Maggiore in Italy, but I shoot for Wedding in all Italy and Europe. [Verbano Cusio Ossola Wedding Photographer]
Passionate about photography for over 25 years, I graduated in Fine Arts from La Sorbonne in Paris. I have been practicing wedding photography for 10 years and exclusively for 3 years. My greatest happiness is to see the newlyweds happy when they watch their wedding photoshoot. [Toulouse 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]
38 years old, 21 years in love with David, the man of my life. Together we designed Lina 11 years ago an adorable girl. The three of us love nature, travel, our cat and life. As a child, I wanted to be a ballet dancer; well yes with a tutu and a bun without a rebellious wick. A few years later, I realized that "little rat" was not for me (despite the passion). Rigor, discipline, and uniformity did not match my character. I am rather free, an anarchist and I like the difference. Thanks to the travels and the arrival of my daughter, photography was more and more present in our family. The device always to carry hands ready to immortalize our memories but also those of our friends. Finally testifying by the image of all these moments of everyday life, joy, love, friendship led me to social photography. (wedding report, family documentary ...) Passionate about adventure and discovery, the day of your wedding I would be for you an adventurer of strong emotions. Your life is an adventure. Let me freeze a fragment of it forever. No lies. No perfection. [Charente-Maritime Wedding Photographer]

[Île-de-France Wedding Photographer]
As a child, I can see myself leafing through the photo albums of my parents, my grandparents, with this recurring question: “Who’s that?” Then came: “Where was it?” “What were you doing?” … And very often the answer was vague, crowded out, for lack of time, of memory perhaps. This situation was super frustrating for the child I was, I wanted to know the story of this photo, of this moment. Later, but long before it became my job, that I didn’t even know it was a job, I documented, with my Minolta, my vacations and family reunions, the weddings of my cousins … Already as a teenager, I understood that it was more important for me to remember all these shared moments, to tell the story of these moments, more than to have a nice group photo posed. This photo says nothing. Which years after brings us only the memory of the people present that day. To see how much we have changed and by the way that fashion has damn evolved! I wanted to print the memories that I had in my memory. Like my grandmother’s smile when she saw us coming from behind the kitchen window. We were covered in mud and hungry, after a beautiful afternoon playing in the puddles. At those times, my grandmother’s smile was very different from the portraits of her that I found in her photo album. It was during this period that I started painting, to add to the portraits I painted the expressions of my memories. Finally, I studied communication. For a few years, I managed the communication department of a large community until this meeting that would change everything. That of a photographer I had hired to create the visuals for a campaign. I found in his images, his approach, everything that I had been looking for for years. Very quickly, I accompanied him on his wedding reports. It was almost a renaissance for me. I finally found my way. I discovered a job that had obsessed me all my youth, without ever having imagined that it really existed. For two years he taught me photography. The technique, no question of using the fully automatic mode of my new reflex. Understand the light. Manage the composition and wait for the moment. AND ME HERE! WEDDING, ELOPEMENT AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IN LYON Today, I have two children, 5 and 11 years old, with “this beautiful encounter” (and yes, it’s not just work that counts). I love to travel, to escape alone for a few days to discover new countries, but especially populations, their lifestyle, their customs … I hate people in such a hurry that they forget the essentials: Living. It is for this reason that I do not limit myself to Lyon to photograph you. To carry out your photo sessions and your wedding reports. You make me travel, I discover new landscapes, different lights and above all great people! [Lyon Wedding Photographer]
I was born in 1970 in a lovely place close to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by “photography” and it is now twenty years that I have been working in this field. In the last fifteen years I have been working as a photographer, especially for weddings. In 2012, in Milan, I set up “WeddingStudio” together with other colleagues. I take photos of wedding days giving a “ photo journalistic” cut to my pictures. That is why I define myself as a “modern storyteller”. Telling stories and touching people through my pictures: that is what I love to do. That is my job and my passion. And when there is passion in what you do, you see the difference! I like thinking and telling about your wedding in a different way: the newlyweds have to live and enjoy every moment of that day and share every moment with their loved ones. That is why I like to become “invisible” and catch details, shades, glances, moods and going on gestures. My job is a wonderful job and every time that one of my pictures can stir up emotions or recollections in people looking at it I think that considering it as “wonderful” is still not enough... [Milan Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Federica! I was born in Naples in 1987. I have coffee flowing in my veins and a strong Neapolitan soul. I am strongly linked to my land and to my origins, even though I feel I belong to the whole world. I love Asia, Asian peoples, and Buddhism. I love traveling, as soon as I can I prepare my backpack and leave. I am a greedy perennially on a diet, I love white chocolate and pizza, strictly Neapolitan. I love simple things, I like habits and routine, but I am one with headshots. My motto is “let you go“. I am precise, determined and solar. I look tough, actually I’m very sensitive. My colleagues nicknamed me “the sergeant” because when I work I am serious and very strict. I don’t let one pass. Despite this, at every wedding, I am moved. I hide the tears behind the camera, the only place where I feel safe. I abandoned after a 9-year course of study and a specialization in Food Science to live of photography. I love weddings. I love the emotions of the spouses, the unpredictability of people, I love tears, deep looks, intertwined hands, the warmth of families, strong hugs, children who run and get dirty, grandparents who fall asleep. I try to tell every story in a simple, natural and elegant way, as I perceive it and live it. I simply let myself be carried away by emotions and by the day, without directing it or modifying the natural course of events. I like to think that my story will be a memory forever in someone’s life. I love this job because, in reality, for me, it’s not a job and, as someone says: “love your job and you’ll never work a day of your life”. [Naples Wedding Photographer]
The next word I learned after 'mommy' and 'daddy', was probably 'aperture'. My father is a photographer you see. And I spend quite a few hours in the darkroom watching the pictures he took showing up. But it was not until I was planning a trip to New York that I took an interest in photography myself. I borrowed my fathers Pentax and asked him what exactly I should do with it, the day before leaving. Right. Not the best of my images, you can imagine ;-) So I took some photography classes, and really got the hang of it. I developed an interest in people photography and documentary wedding photography, because I really like searching for the best possible images that show what the wedding felt like, in a given situation, without interfering. [Overijssel Wedding Photographer]
Hello Everyone! I have been shooting weddings and elopements for 6 years. When I first attended a wedding as a second shooter, I understood that its my dream job. Its always a new adventure and every wedding day is full of surprises. I don't know when is the light come my bride, and make her shine. So I push myself to get different and creative photos every time. I have a documentary style because I want to be the third eye of my bride and groom. My purpose is to give them special moments of their biggest day. There is no chance to go back, so its very important for me to show all the emotions. I really believe that everybody should have meaningful photos of their wedding day to remember even years later. My job is my soul mate. Every morning of a photo shooting, when I wake up to the sun, I am covered with the feeling of joy. I love traveling the world and destination weddings very much. Learning new cultures excites me always. [Istanbul Wedding Photographer]
I've been a full-time photographer for over 6 years now. Photographing people being people is the best thing ever and I know I'll still be doing it long after I've photographed my last wedding. I'm married to my best friend, Róisín. Somehow she gets me and I'm lucky I have her. We live in Belfast with our two kids, Dáithí and Isla, in an old townhouse that's got bags of charm (and NO space). The kids are everything to us. On weekends off, we fuel-up with coffee and take them out adventuring. [Belfast Wedding Photographer]
I’m a Tuscany wedding photographer based in Siena, but I work in all of Italy for weddings. I have taken photos for weddings in Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Milano, Como Lake, Rome, in the Chianti hills, in Val D’Orcia, and in many other beautiful italian locations. I have a reportage style in which a discrete approach, attention to details and spontaneity are the main ingredients. I always have this objective: to create a story through photos, a photo narration as faithful and natural as possible. That’s why from the beginning, I try to establish starting with the first contact with the future bride and groom, a rapport or feeling of confidence to create a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere that permits me to give life to natural and spontaneous photos full of meaning and sentiment. I was born in Siena in 1977. I graduated with a degree in political science and I obtained a doctorate in the history of European political parties. After working several years at the University of Siena, various events and my passion for photography led me to the decision to become a professional photographer. Shortly after starting my career as an exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in the art world. I published for the magazines Play Boy Italy and Art Tribune and showed my photos at exhibitions at various art galleries ( Wikiarte, Magazzini del Sale). After the birth of my first daughter ( Maria Ludovica) my main focus became to be a Siena Wedding Photographer, a exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer and everywhere in Italy. I know every angle of my marvelous region: Siena, Florence, Arezzo and all of the beautiful villages and towns. San Gimignano, Chianti hills, Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi hold no secrets for me. Other than wedding photography, I also teach at “ Studiumfotografia”, a school I created, where I advise many up and coming photographers. After the birth of my second daughter (Maria Luce), the University of Siena gave me the honor of the position of visiting lecturer of digital communications in photography. When I’m not working (rarely) I dedicate myself to my passions: naturally Ludi and Luce, but I also love watching movies, reading and I cannot live without music! Contact me for your Exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer. [Siena Wedding Photographer]

Hi! I'm Pati and I am an elopement and wedding photographer in Mülheim, Ruhrgebiet, and NRW. I am happy to accompany you throughout Germany and Europe and create your personal and emotional wedding reportage. I am originally from Upper Silesia and have been living in NRW since 2012. After completing my studies and training in 2014, I decided to become self-employed as a wedding photographer and am happy to do such a great and emotional job. It always touches me to see how two people, surrounded by family and friends, confirm their love. A wedding is a very intimate and personal experience, the more I am grateful to be able to accompany any wedding ceremony as a wedding photographer. It's also great fun getting to know new people, many of them have become friends today. Yes, sometimes I really think a wedding photographer is the coolest job in the world!

You like to laugh together and are not afraid of the camera? Woohooo! Then let's create something nice together - your personal love story. [Dusseldorf Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I’m Laura! Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion! I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want. I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural. I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you. I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express. I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories. I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions. In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us. When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight. The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident… To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions. I love… …Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones …The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset …The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid …Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear! …And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient! I could not live without… …My few but trusted friends …My car …The fear that gives me the courage I think… …The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain! …The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist …But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves! [Florence Wedding Photographer]
I enjoy creating images, through photography, design, film or drawings. My family and friends are what keep me ticking, photography taking a close second place. I cherish the happy moments in life and get pure joy from my kids when they smile. I have a degree in media production and feel fortunate I have been able to put them into practice, both professionally and personally. I love photography and cameras, a day spent playing with my camera, or experimenting with a new lens is a great day in my book! I am a geek, camera spec’s interest me. After working in the art publishing world for almost 5 years and now as a photographer, I am lucky enough to have worked with artists and photographers that inspire and motivate my own ambitions. I am a 2018 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize Exhibitor. [Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer]
It all started just before my daughter was born (2015). I wanted to document family life in a way that was not disposable like the masses of selfies or general camera phone awfulness that spam-up social media feeds. I wanted to create photos that had more creative thought behind them, photos that I would actually pay money to print and put up around the house or send as gifts to my family. A couple of years later my sister-in-law invited me to shoot her wedding on a beach in Cornwall! Talk about a tough first gig- there’s no climb-down if I messed it up big time. But I was so thrilled to be asked because I’d been dreaming about shooting a wedding because in my mind it paired a truly joyous occasion with the need to have beautiful story-telling photography. I loved it! More importantly, they love the photos, and not long after I started my wedding photography business (2017). I live in Nottingham with my wife and 2 children. I shoot weddings throughout the East Midlands for fun-loving couples. I have a very relaxed style and while I work in a documentary manner for 95% of the day, I specialise in creating natural-looking couples portraits. [Nottinghamshire Wedding Photographer]
When I was a child, my father, Francesco Armocida, used to bring me to his little dark-room in our home in Brooklyn, where I was born. He was working as an artist and re-toucher for a large advertising agency in New York at the time. He had the great fortune to meet photographers like Avedon and Kertesz, who would shoot and print their photos where he worked. The dark-room was like a rebirth for me. It was a magical feeling to see the images appear slowly. This was my fantastic introduction to photography. We soon moved to Calabria, Italy, where I now live with my wife and children. As a young university student I adored photographing the wonderful aspects of nature. I loved using selective focus and shallow depth of field to create magical atmospheres that reminded me of my father’s paintings. I soon developed a great interest in portrait photography and studied lighting techniques. I took portrait courses and followed many wedding photographers helping them during wedding shootings: then I found out that not only in wedding photography you have to be a good photographer but you really should also have a certain behaviour to achieve a certain kind of photography, the one I was and still seeking for today: capture moments with low photographer ‘interference’. I prefer the documentary style, the one that captures the real, emotional moment. Unlike ‘fixed’ pictures and concocted scenarios, I am aiming to capture genuine life-moments. It is an honour to be part of the WPJA. Not only is it a guideline for B&G, but it is also a tool to help photographers meet couples’ needs. [Reggio Calabria Wedding Photographer]
Hello, it's me, Lucille! I am 32 but feel like I was 10 yesterday! I grew up in the Paris area, travelled abroad for studies and work before settling in the eastern part of France near Luxembourg. I love my little city of Metz where I enjoy life's little pleasures such as a drink at a terrace, exhibitions, and concerts. I started photography during family gatherings and fell in love with documentary photography. A never dreamed of a fairy tale wedding for myself, so I never thought of a career as a wedding photographer! One day I photographed a friends' wedding and discovered it was such an exciting playground for a photographer. I love sharing this special day with you, capturing all these little moments and offer you timeless memories. [Metz Wedding Photographer]

I love to take pictures that will make people happy. Photography is my passion. At my young age, I delighted with the beauty of our World and always wanted to keep amazing memories for myself and others for a long time. Then I was managed to do this with the help of my «magic» camera by creating original and unique images that reflect the beauty of humanity and nature, the experiences we all feel and share. Now I am still falling in love with wedding and elopement photography that gives me a unique opportunity to visit beautiful places, meet interesting people and help them to capture those joys and happiness they were experienced on their special day – the beginning of their new life journey together. I think about my profession like a huge playground for creativity. Experience of something new, a source of inspiration and satisfaction! I really enjoy being a part of the wedding – such a special, positive spring of new perceptions and energy for me. One of the most important tasks for every professional is to capture a special atmosphere, the mood, and spirit of the wedding that will bring precious moments and unforgettable feelings to people looking at these pictures in five, ten or even fifty years. And I always try to do my best to be a really great professional! I am lucky to do what I do! [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]

After a decade of passion ScPhoto has joined the professional world of photography on February 5th 2010 (my 30th birthday - the age of reason, isn’t it ?) How do I consider the wedding photography? My point of view is based on simplicity, spontaneity and natural, that’s why I feel so close and explain my link with the photojournalism. The idea is to create a consistent picture that associates the light of lines and composition with an emotion, an expression or an attitude, so that art can mix with a memory… My principal quality is discretion. I am present at your wedding in a non-intrusive way, most of the time your will not even notice me. [Paris Wedding Photographer]

Hampshire and Surrey wedding photographer. Covering weddings all over the south. Over 10 years experience, covering weddings in a documentary style with my wife Carol. After shooting for fashion magazines in London for over 18 years, I consider myself a veteran of that industry. However, ten years ago I left London and started shooting weddings exclusively from my Hampshire, UK base. Although I bring with me a lot of experience in how to make women look beautiful in pictures, even though I don't pose my pictures. I use observation of light, composition and my processing skills, to create my images without ever intruding on the couples enjoyment of the wedding day. My aim is always to be as unobtrusive as I can possibly be during the day and making people feel like they were at the wedding when they view the images. [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]
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]
The more life experience I get, the more I realise the importance of being in the moment. Playing with my children rather than observing them over my laptop; Watching a movie with my wife and just enjoying her company, the easy silence, the film and forgetting the stream of social media updates; Taking the dog out for a walk and just enjoying the walk. As they say, "waking up to smell the roses". My approach to photography is a reflection of who I am: in the moment, spontaneous, observant. I look for shards of interest in the ordinary - maybe a touch of humour, a fleck of irony, a cool reflection. I do that because I'm mindful that I'm here right now and there's always something going on - right now! My other half and I have three children and a dog. I've shot weddings all over the British Isles and USA. I'd love to hear from couples who share my passion for photographic storytelling, who use Pinterest for ideas, not rules; and who place importance in images that reflect who they really are, not what trends tell them to be. [London Wedding Photographer]
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.

I love candid photos, the small moments between friends or two lovers, the very short instant which nobody will remember if a camera wasn't around to catch it. I have been taking pictures since I was a kid. I have started taking professional pictures ten years ago using my camera to tell stories with a journalism aspect. I now want to use my skills to photograph your wedding with my unique point of view on photography. Your love is a story and my job is to describe it through my photos. As a photojournalist, I have won many international photo competitions, and have been selected for many collective exhibitions in Paris, Great Britain and Finland. My personal work is an important part of my photography skills. [Washington DC Wedding Photographer]
I have loved photography since I was young. I have always loved the thought of any emotion being captured naturally, in it's purest form of expression. My passion is born from being a romantic at heart and shooting a wedding like I was shooting my own, without missing a moment. I lived half of my life in Honduras and the most recent half in the USA which is where I have mostly grown as a photographer for weddings, engagements, and elopements. [Knoxville Wedding Photographer]
I am Clara Sampaio, I photograph for passion and love my profession. Since I've changed architecture for wedding photography and family, I can say that I'm part of a select group of people who work with what they really like, and that makes all the difference. The language of my work is guided by photojournalism and most of the time I photograph the moments as they actually happen. I seek the truth of each couple's feelings to tell their love story with pictures. [Rio de Janeiro Wedding Photographer]
I’m Chandan Sojitra, and I like to think of myself as a visual storyteller – it’s my passion to bring your big day to life through stunning imagery. I’ve always been a creative type, but it wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I realised my true vocation. From a passion grew a career, as more and more members of friends and family chose me to capture their memorable events. I discovered the power of images to tell a story, but even better, I discovered how happy, special and magical those images could make people feel. That’s what I want to share with you through my photographs – a little bit of happiness, a little bit of magic. [Dubai UAE Wedding Photographer]

Dear Luca, We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for our wonderful photo album. You were able to catch the emotions of the most important day in our life and to capture the love in our eyes. The lights and the colours of your photos make your works lively. You have made our wedding day unforgettable and immortal with your professionalism and your silent presence. Many many thanks again!
Dear Francesca, I asked Simona to thank you from both Francesco and I...but I really want to say it myself too. From my heart, thank you so very much! You are so talented and we absolutely LOVE our wedding photos. You captured our happy day so perfectly. Francesco thinks I am silly because I have been looking at the photographs for hours every day :) During our wedding, several people also commented on your lovely personality and gentle manner too. This made me very proud. Thank you for being professional, for being lovely and for taking incredible photographs. Sei meraviglioso!
The 'newlywed' shots are simply stunning - it's hard to choose which to frame. In my view, the photos are one of the most important parts of a wedding because they inform many of your memories for years to come. When we look back now, and when we look back in the future, the photos will instantly bring back the warmth and happiness we felt on that perfect day in Provence. And for that, we can't thank you enough, Damion.
Gaëlle you know how to take advantage of the best, even in bad weather conditions. A great result that I do not get tired of watching. In everyone's opinion, you are discreet, social, and attentive to everyone's desires. Very good value for a professional and artistic result (no pictures plan shot). Each person is highlighted while remaining natural, you do not skimp to shoot photos to capture every magic moment of this exceptional day. Thanks to you.
Hi Ufuk, Evrim and I would like to thank you for being a part of our wedding. What a fantastic day it was! There are so many natural shots. You really captured the magic of the day and night without missing a beat, and without us even knowing it. The photos arrived in USBs which were packaged beautifully. It was so nice to go through all of them. They brought back many emotions. Thanks so much once again. We’ll cherish the photos forever! - Meltem
Having you as a photographer for our wedding has been one of the best decisions: you're a talented and dedicated photographer, you've been able to capture all the best moments of the day without being invasive, from the beginning to the very end. All pictures turned out amazing, and they are a true portrait of the feelings and emotions of the day. You're so passionate about wedding photography, and the results are the best memory of our special day.
Hi Lyndsey, Hopefully you're not too frazzled after your marathon weekend of weddings. I meant to say some of this when we saw you at Claire and Elliott's wedding, but didn't really get the chance. In a nutshell I just wanted to say thank you properly for photographing our wedding. Erin and I never seem to have it easy, I'd say we've had more than our fair share of things going wrong since we got together. But the last few months have been the hardest by a long way. It's only since Erin's dad died that I've come to fully understand just how much he meant to Erin, and how much she's always worshipped and idolised him. She's still coming to terms with the loss, while at the same time unconsciously assuming his role in the family- sorting out all the practical problems since his death, and being the voice of reason when there's a difference of opinion even while she tries to grieve. I sort of sit at the sidelines, and I can see she is the best of what her dad was, which is something I don't think she'll ever really appreciate. But then her dad was too unassuming to ever recognise his own importance too. Personally, I was always slightly nervous around him, the way many guys are around the father of the love of their life. Not that he did anything to warrant my edginess, it was just that he was always so capable and knowledgeable- the first person you'd want in a crisis. I looked forward to getting to know him better, to fix an old car up with him, or work with him fixing up our first house. None of that is meant to make you feel bad, or sorry for us- we're a solid and otherwise happy couple, and I know we'll endure this and anything else that life throws at us. The reason I'm saying it is so that you can maybe appreciate our gratitude for you agreeing to photograph our wedding. I know you already know, that just as your photography catches the mood and emotion of the day, so it also catches the thoughts and interactions of the people, and so shows people as they really are. Your photos really do show Brian as he was. One of Erin's favourite pictures of the day is that of her with her dad outside the registry office. It's like her aunt said recently- it doesn't just look like Brian, it's everything about him in a nutshell. The way he brought calm to Erin, the way he was always there for her while never being in the limelight. The way he was the perfect father to her. We talked at Elliott and Claire's wedding about how the photographs are the only physical thing that stays with you after you get married, and after the last few months the photos you took of Brian on the day have become even more important to Erin. Maybe another photographer could have taken pictures that showed the same thing, but then again maybe not. I don't know why you agreed to be our photographer- you no doubt would have had other requests offering more money closer to home. It sounds trite to say, but I really can't think of any greater act of kindness toward the two of us than yours. Reading back through the twaddle I've written, a lot of it sounds trite, but it is all true. So really, thank you. More than a silly email could say, thank you.
We got married almost like two years ago, and l just had a chance to look at all of our photos. How talented you are Ufuk! I always looking to the photos with a big smile on my face. Thanks for the amazing photos again! You didn’t miss even a second, l felt like I was in our wedding again. THANK YOU.
Thank you for your positive energy. You were everywhere at the day. Everybody loved and respected you. You catched every emotional moment at our wedding what we can’t see at that time. You are not just a photographer You are a good soul with a big heart. We are grateful to had you with us while our wedding day. Thanks a lot. Wish you and your family the best and a healthy long life. We keep in touch. We are looking forward to meet you again as soon as possible.
