6 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

Since I was a young boy I have been interested in photography. In wedding photography I have found my true calling and I love the many challenges of wedding photography. At weddings the photographer has to be ready all the time to capture the special moments and emotions of the married couple and guests. The photographer has to be able to adapt to very quickly to changing and unexpected moments. My aim is to capture the real feeling and emotions of the couple and the guest and produce high quality photos which the married couple can enjoy years after the actual wedding. In order to do this I try blend in with the guests and make as natural photos as possible. At weddings I use a set of high quality digital cameras and supporting equipment to make the photos also technically as good as possible. I am also a very happy and open person and I can easily relate to the emotions the couple and the guests are going through. [Turku Wedding Photographer]

Helsinki wedding photography by Petri Mast of Finland
Starting Price:
2000 (EUR)

I'm a photographer, a daddy, and a husband... I used to shoot since I was a child with any kind of camera, analogic machines, compact, 35mm, digital SLR cameras, etc... What interests me is to capture and create. Thanks to my grandfather who gave me the first film camera and given me the opportunity to develop hundreds of photos ... I prefer portraits and storytelling by reportage. My love is "catch the moment" to make beautiful images. I love Photography in all, it is my passion, like for pizza. I love to be a friend during the wedding day, not a "director". A friend that will shoot about your day just with emotions and real moments that will become...memories. No constructions, no fake, just a lovely couple with a beautiful story on a special day. [Syracuse Wedding Photographer]

Cotes-d'Armor wedding and elopement photographer Patrick Lombaert - Brittany France

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.

Sweden wedding photography by Ana Mihalic of Lund, Skane

I'm a Croatian photographer living in south Sweden. I have a master's degree in art photography. Besides wedding photography, most of my career has concentrated on lifestyle, fashion, and food photography for magazines and other commercial work for different brands. I have also worked a lot on my artistic career and have had more than 10 solo exhibitions in different galleries and museums. I love wedding photography for its honesty in capturing the emotional moments and events during such an important day. I have been shooting weddings for around ten years now and have a lot of experience with all different kinds of weddings from the intimate ones to the very big ones. I love nature hikes and I love to travel all over the world so no place is too far for me and I'm always looking for an excuse to take the next big or small trip. [Lund Wedding Photographer]
