Julie's fascination with photography started early. Hanging in her family home were two side-by-side portraits: one of her sister, perfectly coiffed and surrounded by carefully arranged stuffed animals; and one of Julie, tangled hair, one sock falling down and struggling to put on a pair of shoes. Julie passed those photos every day until the idea that people and character should be in photographs was as second nature as bee-bopping to ’80s music. Fast-forward fifteen years and you will meet a self-made, successful, award-winning artists who, despite her interest in all visual mediums, has devoted herself exclusively to candid moment driven photojournalistic photography in Key West. Below the bubbly surface that will charm both bride and groom is a serious professional and incredible artists. [Key West Wedding Photographer]
Michael describes himself as “a real-moments photographer”. He strives to create bold, artistic portraits that are worthy of celebration. His unique perspective and down to earth personality translates well with clients, and he takes time to get to know all of his wedding couples. Michael likes to push the limits of creativity and thrives off of spontaneity. He focuses on the story of the day and how it unfolds, documenting the romance and love. When Michael was in high school, his grandfather gave him his first camera, a Kodak Ektra 100 and he began shooting film. It was during this time that the seed was planted for Michael’s unique eye for composition. A lifelong soccer player, Michael played goalkeeper in high school and college. As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding. His documentarian style captures these fleeting moments creating images that are authentic and timeless. Each year, Michael shoots around 50 full-day weddings, including many destination and elopement weddings. An avid outdoorsman, Michael enjoys traveling to new places and exploring the beauty of the natural world. He loves all activities on the water including fishing, boating, and surfing. Michael is inspired by nature, light, abstract design and the love he witnesses between his couples. [Miami Wedding Photographer]
A self-learned photographer, David Zaoui was born in 1982 of Eurasian and Franco-Algerian parents. Growing up, his diverse background provided an ideal environment where artistic sense, open-mindedness and multiculturalism were omnipresent. Through both his grandfather who was a Painter and his mother who attended the Beaux-Arts school, David realized the true impact a simple image can have on a person. During his own wedding, he discovered the art of wedding photography, and became friends with a talented photographer who soon became his mentor. Through his love for both travelling the globe and photography, David is today a confirmed wedding photographer both in France and abroad. Through his images, he tells a story aimed at showing true emotions, cultural diversity and the natural beauty of landscapes all of which emanate from the Ceremonies he captures. In 2014, David became a member of two prestigious International Wedding photographer affiliations, one being the WPJA which has further comforted him in his professional and life choices. In 2015, he became Ambassador to a famous international camera brand. In 2016-17, he won 12 world wedding photography awards, speaker for Nikon France and lives now in Miami.

I discovered photography when I was living in Australia. I wanted to show my family and friends the beautiful landscapes of this very singular country and to share my new life and adventure with them. Later on I started taking portraits of people and life scenes. Photography became an excuse to please my curiosity, to discover new angles of human beings and their cultures. I wanted to go where I had never dared to go before. When I take pictures, I am traveling and experiencing new ways of living in which I can express myself and feel fullfiled. With that same idea in mind of taking pictures in the heat of the moment, I started photographing weddings. I first took pictures of my friends’ weddings, and then little by little, through networking, I was brought to this very peculiar wedding universe that I enjoy. What is important for me is to capture the moment and keep it real and authentic; every action has to remain spontaneous, every emotion has to be caught in an instant. That is why I am an active member of the WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST ASSOCIATION. Every wedding picture is a challenge. I am 100% involved, living the emotion, and trying to keep it as real as I can in my photo reports. Over the course of one day I tell your story and keep your memories . . . [Miami Wedding Photographer]
Hey there, I'm Carrie Pratt, the owner and principal photographer of Simply Blue Studios. I work out of both Tampa Bay, Florida, as well as Bowling Green, Kentucky. My specialty is creative documentary photography, weaving moments into my images that are iconic symbols of the day. With a background in photojournalism, I am a storyteller at heart and have been recognized internationally for my work. I am dedicated to giving couples the best experience, pleasing their loved ones, and bringing a smile to their faces throughout the day. From large country club celebrations to intimate back yard ceremonies, I love telling stories. [Tampa Wedding Photographer]
Dan started his photography career at the age of eight, encouraged by his mother's instructions on the workings of the Kodak Brownie II camera. He spent the whole afternoon lying on the grass in the late California summer sun taking pictures of his GI Joe figurines in full battle regalia. Little did he know his love of GI Joe was to be replaced with a love of photography. His formative years are now more affectionately referred to as the Rangefinder, Polaroid and Instamatic years. He majored in journalism in college, beginning his SLR years. He has over 20 years experience in newspapers. He swore he would never shoot weddings but finally caved under the pressure of friends and has now shot more than 730 events in the past 20 years. He has won numerous local, national and international awards. While lying in the grass at a recent wedding capturing the life-changing event before his eyes, he reminisced about an earlier time when he naively discovered his own lifetime passion. [Jacksonville Wedding Photographer]
I fell in love with photography when I was in my late teens and living in Mexico City. I always saw photography as an art and as a tool for social change. This led me to spend a couple of decades working as a freelance photojournalist covering news and feature assignments for national and international publications. After my son was born, I chose to scale back on travel. I took time off to get an MFA and started teaching at the college level, and lecturing on writing and photography. I have exhibited nationally, published a couple of novels, and I’m currently learning to play the guitar—it’s not easy! I’ve been photographing weddings for over a decade. I shoot only about a dozen weddings each year, which helps me offer a more personal service. I’m always honored by how families welcome me into their lives. I feel a great sense of responsibility to remain unobtrusive while capturing the moments that will become lifelong memories. For me, photographing a wedding is about telling a story, not just of the day itself, but of two people—and two families—coming together. I’m based in Florida’s Gulf Coast and cover weddings from Miami to Tampa at no additional charge. I’m available for destinations weddings in Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond. I’m fluent in Spanish and French. [Tampa Wedding Photographer]
I was born in Los Angeles, California (to Peruvian parents) and have lived throughout Northern and Southern Cali most of my life until about March 2011 when I decided to up & move to Lima, Peru to pursue my dream of being a full-time photographer and documenting social work in the slums of Lima. After graduating from California State University at Fullerton in 2010 with a bachelor's in Visual Communication & minor in Sociology, I attended several photojournalism workshops around the world for years including Look3 Festival of the Photograph workshops (Charlottesville, VA) and Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Istanbul, Buenos Aires and Mexico City, BodaF in Querétaro, Mexico and Beyond [Wedding Photography] Workshop in Lima, Peru 2016 & 2017. Each of these experiences brought out a different world within me and taught me the value of photography as a tool to help us see, not only things or other people but ourselves. I’ve been photographing couples and families for over 10 years now, but falling in love and having experienced what it’s like to be the bride first-hand has changed the way that I see through my viewfinder at weddings. I am an utterly hopeless romantic and I can see and feel the love around me much more now than ever before. I get it. I offer real, emotive, and breathtaking images that capture who you truly are and all the joy you are feeling on your day. I also love to capture the behind the scenes bits, which I feel are the most interesting and telling; the pre-ceremony jitters, the anxiety in the dressing room, the sheer madness and beauty of it all. I live for these raw moments and am always ready to capture them when you least expect or even notice. Let me share my passion and years of photography experience with you. Maybe we can get a coffee together and you can tell me all about how your story began and how you want to remember it. [Miami 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]
Photographer and diaper changing ninja. I once had a dream that I got rich and famous for being the guy that took all the cat photos on the internet. I am a dad, husband, and photographer in that order. Those three things make me the happiest, and my favorite new hobby is to use my photography skills to document my daughter growing up and all the fun sweet moments she has with my wife. I cherish every minute with those two and although I have huge goals for success as a photographer, every time I make my wife or baby girl laugh I feel successful enough. Sometimes I feel like becoming a successful photographer is a crazy dream, but I remember I want my daughter to chase hers someday and it makes me not want to give up. My wife and I are high school sweethearts who have been in love ever since we saw each other in the gym at Southgate Anderson High School. She followed me to Michigan State and then all the way to Georgia. No matter where I go or whatever crazy journey I’ve been on, I can always count on her being by my side. There’s nothing better than having that loyal sidekick who always believes in you and is just happy to be in your arms. We’ve been best friends since the day we met and luckily we haven't stopped being as silly as when we were kids. (We may or may not have taken our limo to burger king on our wedding day) I think a part of why I love photographing weddings so much is because I feel joy every time I see couples that just seem to love each other as we do. I grew up in Detroit but I moved to the south as soon as I could (I FREAKIN LOVE IT HERE) I have officially adopted the Falcons (I mean seriously I grew up a Lions fan, that was an easy trade) and the braves, but not sweet tea (gross) But I still love my Spartans (Izzo for President) I once thought of trying to be a stand-up comedian, but I couldn’t come up with any jokes so I got back into photography instead. I was a Science Teacher for 12 years and have been known to randomly get excited about explaining things. I may or may not have spent an entire road trip explaining to my wife about Clouds. Gotta love them beautiful Cumulus Nimbus. [Atlanta Wedding Photographer]
Since 2012 we take care of capturing the most special moments of the lives of the couple who come to us, their families and the people who make their history unique and special. We capture the extraordinary in the most daily elements for couples and their relationship with the important people for them because we believe that the most significant of the experiences lies in the mundane. On the other hand, it is important that you know that we are not going to intimidate you and your guests with giant cameras and equipment. We went unnoticed to photograph spontaneous and natural moments. We are who we are because of our work and the stories we told before, during and after the big day. We promise that when you get in touch with us, we will give you the best options for your big day. [Miranda Wedding Photographer]
Hello! I’m Kathy and I am a Photographer & Adventurer. Walt Disney said... 'If you can dream it... you can do it...' I try to live by this mantra everyday of my life. As a photographer my career is based upon dreaming and creating. My goal is to create images that can tell a story and give emotion. I want people to view my photography and be able to both see and feel what is going on in that photograph. I'm not afraid to step out of the box or go down a road less travelled for an amazing photo. I'm always trying to outdo myself. Although I photograph a little bit of everything my main focus is weddings & wildlife. Over the past 4 years I have used the money I have made shooting weddings to travel the world and photograph wildlife in it's natural habitat. The purpose of these adventures are to educate people on how they can help save our planet. Two years ago on one of my adventures to Africa I was introduce to David Sheldrick's Wildlife Trust. This organization is helping to rehabilitate baby elephants who were orphaned in the wild because of poaching. I quickly fell in love with their mission and organization and knew I wanted to give back. For all my couples that book a wedding package I adopt a baby elephant in their name. I lost my mom to cancer in 2012. I have always had a bucket list of sorts but her passing inspired me to actually start crossing items off my list. Since that point I've travelled to all 7 continents (twice), 48 countries, and 42 states. I've snorkeled with Orca Whales under the Northern Lights in Norway, I walked amongst thousands of Penguins in Antarctica, I've been face to face with Lions & Elephants, I celebrated Carnivale in Brazil and Holi in India, I've hiked in Patagonia, up volcanoes in Congo, and on the Inca Trail. I've trekked with Gorillas and Tigers. I've won my first award for my wildlife photography and will officially publish my first article this fall. I love the Outdoors- Hiking, Camping, and just breathing the fresh air. I love all things Disney (even after working there for 10 years). I've only read the Harry Potter books once but I think JK Rowling is a genius. I appreciate Star Wars, but will admit that I really just love Ewoks! I love love love animals. I have 2 dogs and 2 fish... and I'm working on chickens. When I grow up... other then a photographer I hope to work in Wildlife Conservation. [Baltimore 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]
I have had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. Since a child, I was delighted in how a moment can be captured through the lens of a camera, and how time stands still within the frame of a photograph. I approach every project with professionalism and a will to deliver quality and value to my clients. I believe that exceptional photographs can only be taken in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, and so I make every effort to make sessions as enjoyable as possible and to put clients at ease. When I first used a camera, several years ago, I would never have imagined I could become a wedding photographer. Bang and I opened our first studio in Elk Grove, near Sacramento, experimenting in different styles and adapting to the needs of the local clientele. Little by little, we realized what we were looking for in our photos was emotion, which still life or classical studio photography could not offer. Real people, their expressions, their emotions, this is what we wanted to capture. Choosing wedding photography was a natural consequence, as it offers the unique opportunity to capture human emotions in all their shades I believe it is in the nature of humankind to be attracted, and sometimes, upset, by what is different from us, as in a way it represents our opposite, our contrasting personality. I never found it easy to show my emotions and my sensitivity, to express my real self and let go completely, displaying my vulnerability. I guess this is why what attracts me most in weddings: the ability to capture the emotions expressed without filters, with no fear of showing what you really are and what you are feeling. A smile, a hearty laugh, tears you’d like to hide, an emotional hug, these intimate moments fascinate and seduce me, and this is what I base my photography on. Static poses created with affected emotions are not my cup of tea; I want true spontaneity. [Sacramento Wedding Photographer]

[Panama Wedding Photographer]
About Me: I crave adventure. The kind that lets me explore the world. The kind of adventure that when I think back about it even years later, I can still hear the laughter I shared. The kind that nurtures and cultivates relationships. The kind of adventure that changes me…and allows me to change others. I’m spontaneous, a little rebellious, and a little follow-the-rules. I FEEL all of the feels, all of the time. I will sing at your sessions…and likely express my excitement with a happy dance. And I’ll probably tell you too much and make you laugh with me (but probably at me). No matter the adventure we are on, I promise it’s going to be a fun one. Wife Life: I met my husband on my very first day of college at Texas Lutheran University. I talked some major smack while playing a competitive game of poker and he sarcastically talked smack right back. It was love. Really though, it’s important to have a partner who balances you. And Justin is that for me. While I’m spontaneous and often unrealistic, he is a thinker, planner and reels me back in when my ideas are not well planned out. But he also supports me and lets me dream. Mom Life: In my daily grind, you’ll find me raising 3 very independent and spirited GIRLS. The kind that will no doubt be capable of running our country one day. Or a gang. Fingers crossed it’s our country though. You’ll also find me editing photos (or answering emails) while my girls are at gymnastics or in the car line for school pick up. What you should know: Epic. Authentic. Creative. Unique. Emotive. These are the words that I use to tell your story through my camera. Your story is not like everyone else’s- so your wedding photos should not be either. And also, my clients become my family…so you should know that upfront too. [San Antonio Wedding Photographer]
I am Maik, an International Wedding Photographer currently based in Peru and Germany. My work has brought me to more than 15 different countries, from Caribbean beaches to the heights of the Andes, from the big apple to the Amazon Rainforest and all around Germany and Europe Over recent years my photography has won a number of prestigious international awards and my work has been featured in blogs and magazines. But more important to me is what my photos mean to my clients. Photographing weddings especially when far away can be exhausting but it is also so rewarding! Wedding photography has become a passion. I want to tell a story – an authentic story of your wedding day, a love story, a story of friendship and family, a story beyond what everybody sees – your story. [Lima Wedding Photographer]
When Tim had his first encounter with a DSLR camera he was so fascinated he couldn’t put it away. He soon understood it was so much more than a toy. Not long after, he decided to make his new passion his profession. During the next few years, he received a great deal of training from top photographers, learning what weddings were all about. During this time his eyes opened up to the real meaning of being a wedding photographer. Tim states, “I wanted to document the tears, laughter, excitement, and love between the couple so that when they look back, they can relive the day. My images will tell a story that words cannot describe. I capture moments that will never come back. I learned how to be a true storyteller.” Since then, he has been working hard to make each and every wedding a sparkling and memorable day for decades to come. As a single man, Tim never thought much about anything related to weddings. His perspective of wedding photography changed entirely as soon as he got married. “I started to see people, hear their stories, feel their wedding jitters.” He wanted to tell the story of the day through his photographs. “I realized what a blessing, challenge, and responsibility it was to be a part of the happiest day of a beautiful couple’s life.” Tim feels happiest when he receives letters from the newlyweds saying that the wedding images he has taken were more than they had expected and that they had already framed and hung some of them around their home. “I take it very personally”, he admits, “I treat every wedding as if it was my own. I want all of them to be perfect!” [Manhattan Wedding Photographer]

With her upbeat personality, Lyndah is mum to 2 energetic girls and married to the love of her life, whom she met whilst on a 10-day vacation in The Bahamas. Has pretty much led her through this thing called life and to the joy she wakes up to almost every day doing what she loves as an award-winning and internationally published wedding photographer in the beautiful islands of the Bahamas (except when the kids insist on waking up at 5 am on a weekend that she hasn't got a wedding booked. ) Her approach to life is visible in the bold, colorful and emotive images she makes for her clients [Freeport Wedding Photographer]

[Venice Wedding Photographer]
As a wedding photojournalist, I create vibrant, playful, engaging imagery that evokes the emotion of your wedding day. Based in Birmingham, AL with a second home base in New Orleans, I especially love photographing weddings that have a little flair, be that in the form of a backyard reception, a second line or a crazy dance party. No matter how you choose to celebrate, the truth is I will probably cry at your wedding. My art form is capturing people’s emotions. When photographing you, I try to feel what you are feeling and translate that into moving imagery. The magic of weddings moves me. As a photographer, I am interested in creating beautiful images, particularly images involving people. I consider myself a highly empathetic person, so while beautiful pictures are part of the deal, I am most interested in learning about you through your emotions, actions, and reactions, capturing those real moments that happen during and in between the planned portions of the day. [Birmingham Wedding Photographer]
My name is Gingi Freeman. I am a photographer, artist, storyteller and mother of two adorable toddlers in Visalia, California. I often shoot alongside my husband Jonathan, where we love to capture real moments and raw emotions. My non-intrusive approach to weddings allows couples to relax and be present in their moments of happiness rather than focusing on posing. That’s what I want to deliver with each assignment, a meaningful and beautiful storyboard. I am a crazy cat person, adventure seeker, Christ follower and overall geek! Some of my hobbies include traveling, gardening, dropping random Mel Brooks movie quotes, going to comic book conventions and making frequent trips to Disneyland. I are located in Visalia, California but travel to many cities and states for wedding photography, my primary passion! [Visalia Wedding Photographer]
I love what I do. I love telling the story of someone’s love, life, and happiness in one frame. While I started out wanting to be a screenwriter and spent many years toiling away in the financial world, the instantaneous thrill of capturing a memory by simply pressing the shutter button hooked me in 2004 and I have been a visual storyteller ever since with work featured in such publications as Martha Stewart Living and New York Magazine. I’ve lived all over the world and I am from Florida originally, but I’m proud to call New York City home. The vitality of NYC is something I pack into each and every photograph. I’m constantly roaming the streets and subway for new inspiration. So if you see me on the street with camera in hand, stop and say hi. I’d love to show you the city through my lens. [Queens Wedding Photographer]
When I obsessively started taking tons of photos back in high-school, I never imagined that years later I would have hundreds of amazing weddings in my portfolio. I've always followed my passions, and after spending many years DJing around the world, I wanted to create art that was more original. And I fell in love with photography. Choosing to shoot such glamorous and tear-jerking weddings (no, I am not immune, either) came naturally, partly because I am a bit of a romantic myself, and because I was always drawn to people’s real emotions. I love what I do so much that sometimes I forget it's work, because it’s different every time – no two weddings, locations or couples are the same, and this makes things incredibly exciting for me. Wedding photography has taken me all around the world. I've shot in about a dozen different countries on 4 different continents and had some unforgettable experiences in remote places like Mongolia, Phuket, India, and Belgium. So no matter where your wedding is, whether it's in a village on the other side of the world, an exotic beach, or an intimate backyard wedding in NYC, I'll be there with you. Memorable Images that Will Stay with You Forever I enjoy everything about weddings, but my favorite moments to document are when couples get ready, showing genuine, real emotions. The morning always feels unlike any other part of the day. And portrait sessions, when we can get creative, possibly take an adventurous pursuit to find a unique location, and make photos that can also standalone as works of art. Despite Personal Victories I Never Cease to Strive for Perfection I feel really proud of all the awards I have won over the years for my wedding work, and the shots that have been published in national wedding magazines, but I'm most proud when I can cook a tasty dinner for friends and family without the smoke alarm going off! My Aim - Creating Outstanding Lifetime Memories Feel free to explore STAK Studios, a kaleidoscope of smiles, tears of joy, and people dressed to the nines! If you are getting married, I would be truly honored to capture your big day, so get in touch and share your vision with me. We’ll make a great team and turn your wedding into a work of art. [Manhattan Wedding Photographer]

His approach to each and every wedding is fun and relaxed, yet still professional which results in candid and natural looking photos.

I have had a camera in my hand since I was about 7 years old. Photography is truly a passion for me and I am fortunate enough to mix my work with my passion. I attended Hope College in Holland, MI and graduated with a degree in Art focusing in Photography and Ceramics, and a degree in Psychology. I currently reside in San Antonio, Texas with my husband and son. We are expecting our second child this spring. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I would be honored if you would allow me the privilege of sharing your moments and helping tell your story. [San Antonio Wedding Photographer]
I should have been practicing penmanship (it really is the worst) but I could not keep my hands off my step father's photography books. I learned what panning was, what particular filters did- I found it all fascinating. Later on, I had a few friends that dabbled in photography and showed me the darkroom- what magic! Finally, on a whim, I took Photo 101 in college. That was my first love! I've documented over 400 weddings, and am positive that the found moment is more valuable to the heart than any staged. I cannot tell you what fulfillment it brings me, personally, to offer these documents to my clients. When everything works together- the moment, the lighting, the emotion- I keep that in my pocket for a rainy day. Portraits have a lean toward that as well, with a push toward the bonds between people. By working to get clients to interact, the images made reflect the connection between individuals as well as the self. “My goal is for fun moments between the people I am photographing, with little camera awareness apparent. Posed work is great, but finding the real smiles, getting a belly laugh- I want my clients to have images that capture that!” Her background in traditional photography, studio lighting, and English literature blend well to help tell the stories between families and friends and the love of a lifetime. [Raleigh Wedding Photographer]
I was born in Manchester almost 30 years ago to my eclectic fashion designer Mum and entrepreneurial Dad. Growing up I absolutely loved the indie, vibrant, musical, grimy, authentic vibe of Manchester and it served me well as a backdrop for all my creative endeavours. I was always in the school art room and constantly making a mess of my parents home with my collecting and collaging. I was always the one following my friends around with my vintage film cameras at all the gigs, nights out and Oasis concerts. In 2012 I graduated from Central Saint Martins art school in London with a BA in fine art photography and went on to start my photography business full time. I've had my photography featured both online, in magazines and in galleries in London, New York, and Tel Aviv. I've photographed everything from births to boudoir, from street photography to celebrity portraits but my favourite is by far weddings. It's everything in one. The candid moments, the emotional ceremonies, the bridal portraits, the dreamy first look, the tears, the laughter, the wild dancing, the sparkler send-offs. I feel like I've traveled through time by the end of the night and I love every crazy moment of it. I usually work with my husband who is a very talented filmmaker and photographer (if I do say so myself). We have traveled the world together and we are hooked, we've got that travelling bug. Our favourite places so far are Montenegro and Cuba. If you haven't been yet, GO! We got married in early 2018 and it was amazing! Having done it ourselves it gives such a perspective on what the day can/does feel like. It's great for us to know what it's like to love and trust your photographer and just enjoy the day without a moments hesitation. [London Wedding Photographer]
I was raised in North Carolina, went up north to Boston College to study Studio Art, lived abroad in Florence, Italy, moved to Washington, DC, and now I have been splitting my time on both coasts between Los Angeles and Greensboro, NC. I truly love what I do. It is as much a lifestyle as it is a calling - and I am humbled by the recognition I have received within my industry. In college, I was featured in National Geographic for a photojournalism piece focusing on Americans in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains. For the past 10 years, photography has been my life, my passion, and an ever-changing, creative source of self-expression. By incorporating both love and art, it is an extreme honor to capture the big moments in people's lives. Weddings are the culmination of a love story and a start to a new adventure. What I love most about weddings is I often get to see a couple grow from engagement to marriage to starting a family. To maintain quality work and excellent client relationships, I only book up to 15 weddings a year (both local and international). The other work I get to delve into (mostly in LA) is documenting branding and decor for Hollywood studios and other companies. On those very special days off, I adore spending time with my husband, our new baby boy Julian, and our rescue Shepherd, Zoe. I am very passionate about animal welfare and spend a dedicated amount of time photographing shelter animals and helping place them in forever homes. [Los Angeles Wedding Photographer]
When I was a young girl growing up in Lithuania, I fell in love with everything about weddings. I got caught up in the joy, beauty, and emotion, and the sweet connections that happened between family and friends always made me smile. I still feel that way today. Now I am living my dream as a wedding photographer in Washington D.C., and traveling for destination weddings nationally and abroad. I am known for my documentary style which keeps me focused on candid moments and true emotions. It’s those kinds of story-telling wedding photos that you will see throughout my portfolio. When you trust me to be your wedding photographer, I want my photos to speak to you about your life, (not just make you look amazing). Of course, I’ll capture gorgeous portraits, group shots, and details to fill in your collection, and I’ll do it all without controlling the flow of your celebration. When you look at your photo years from now I want you to feel the emotions you felt on your wedding day, just like it was yesterday, and remember how comfortable you felt in front of the camera. If you find yourself drawn to my work, please reach out. I would love to know what captures your heart and makes you smile, and if our calendars align I would be thrilled to be your wedding photographer. All the best, Gabriele Stonyte [Arlington Wedding Photographer]

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! The photos are spectacular! The 'real time emotion' moments that you captured are amazing....exactly what Tim and I wanted and more. The portrait shots at on Harrison Street are incredible. You have no idea how many times I've said today 'awesome shot'. Thank you for making our day even more special.

Thank you very much for the beautiful pictures of the wedding of Lorraine and Vincent. You have captured the moments of emotion and sharing you play perfectly with the colors, brightness, movement. It's art! thank you also for your kindness ... The "mother" of the groom
We are totally blown away by the photos you took of us for our engagement shoot. Wow!!! Yes, we are very pleased indeed. These were exactly what we were looking for and hoping for. They turned out so good. The different locations, the colors, the different backgrounds and textures were all amazing. You really have an eye for the backdrops too. They all worked so well. The colors all popped, and we are also in focus too, LOL. We cannot believe they turned out so well on such a cold and gloomy day. Thank you again for doing this and staying so positive and enthusiastic and passionate in such miserable weather. Your personality really made it easy for us and helped to energize us. And judging by the excellent quality of your photos, and the superb creativity, style and composition of your photos, we know we definitely made the right choice of wedding photographer and look forward to the wedding knowing that our photos are one less thing we have to worry about because you have that totally under control. Thank you also for the super quick turn-around for the engagement photos. That must have taken you a long time. We really appreciate it and were so motivated by how well they turned out. Courtney for one looked over them all several times. Again, we send you much thanks and congratulations on your wonderful photos.
