Hallo, my name is David Anton and I welcome you to my WPJA Profile. I am an International award winning photographer based in Kehl, Germany, close to Strasbourg with Spanish nationality. In 2017 I was chosen as one of the TOP10 Photographers in Europe (FEP) [Offenburg Wedding Photographer]
"Wedding photographer". I took this decision four years ago.. Since then I lived my dreams. Everyday. It was a hard, and sometimes debilitating path, that shaped me. For which I have sacrificed much. For which I have left behind the normal life of a teenager - and yet I do not regret it for a single second. After taking my life-changing decision, to become a photographer, a lot changed: The weekends I spend in the swimming pools of my beautiful country have turned into wedding locations.. The evenings, I crammed for school, I now sit in front of my computer editing pictures or meet awesome bridal couples. When I put the camera aside, then you'll find me most likely studying in university: In the summer of 2015 I did the step if being a student and I am currently in the sixth semester of my online communications studies. For me #onkomm (so we call our degree program) combines many things, which helps me professionally, but personally, as well. As you might see on my website, I am an internet person. [Hesse Wedding Photographer]
Do not worry, I do not want to bore you with it, when exactly I developed my first movie back then in the darkroom or which camera and which lens I bought when. Because for you is only important: my heart beats for photography and I am very happy to work since 2011 as a freelance photographer. I care about the people and their stories and I want to capture your big emotional moments as well as the loving little things on the edge of the action, your "outer shell" as well as your character or every day, that for you at some point in retrospect but then to a wonderful moment becomes. Pure and undisguised, timelessly beautiful and aesthetically - that's the way the pictures should refresh your memory of the moment and put a smile on your face. [Hagen Wedding Photographer]
My name is Matthias and, as you may already know, I am a child of the Ruhr region. Born and raised in the pot, more precisely in Gelsenkirchen - Erle, today I am 39 years old, I am married and I can accompany the bride and groom from all over Germany for over 6 years. The fascination of wedding photography began with me, as perhaps with one or other colleagues, usually in the circle of friends. True to the motto - man, you make great pictures of couples, why can you certainly take our wedding pictures? Even though I was more than nervous and very aware of the task, I also wanted to photograph a wedding for the first time. Said, done! Since then, I can't ignore wedding photography! The true joy, happiness, and love of the bridal couple, the great mood between the guests and more, which makes this unique day special, keeps my own heart on each wedding day, which I witness repeatedly beating faster. [North Rhine-Westphalia Wedding Photographer]
I started to use the camera at the age of twelve and since then I was continuously developing my style and techniques. For many years I was a street photographer until the wedding photojournalism crossed my path. Instantly I fell in love with the art of capturing real emotions and the beauty of each wedding. Aside from wedding photography I am writing novels. When I am not behind my camera, I am enjoying my time off with my kids. [Frankfurt Wedding Photographer]

For 18 years I have been working as a freelance cinematographer on a variety of projects like short fiction, documentaries, TV series, live broadcast studio shows, music events and corporate films. I have worked for all important Polish TV stations. Since few years ago I work as a documentary wedding photographer.

In 1991 I graduated Secondary School of Visual Arts - Photography Divison in Gdynia. In 1995 I graduated from the Polish National Film School in Lodz - Photography Dept. In 2001 I graduated from the Polish National Film School in Lodz - Cinematography Dept. [Cologne Wedding Photographer]
For me, photography means discovering the world. I record what I encounter along the way with my camera: Things that are beautiful, important, humbling, and moving. Because what makes great photos so special is that the moments they immortalize come to life again when you look at them. As if you were there again. My camera has been my constant companion since 2008. I started out doing wedding photography in 2010 when some close friends asked me to document their wedding day. I was hooked – I wanted to document the most beautiful day of their lives in photos – but not with staged group photos! Instead, I followed the events almost unnoticed and captured all the emotional moments that are part of such events on film. It suited me and I wanted to perfect it. Since then I count myself among the best wedding photographers worldwide. I not only accompany weddings on the beautiful Bodensee—where I was born, raised, and still always feel at home –but also anywhere in the world upon request, even underwater! I also greatly enjoy traveling in my free time together with my fiancée. We prefer to pursue our shared passion: diving. Far away from mass tourism, we discover the most remote spots on the planet and enjoy the time together spent in the beautiful underwater world. Of course, my camera comes with me here as well! I’d like to give wedding couples—so you!—an unforgettable gift with my work behind the camera. The joy, the praise, and the recognition after I present the photos to the married couple is the true reward for all of my efforts as a wedding photographer. My goal is that my photos will put a smile on your face for the rest of your life! [Markdorf Wedding Photographer]

I am happy to be able to do this for many years... I live for that what I do - and my motto - love that what you do - then you will be sucessful... The art is not to photograph alone, but to show you the way you are. [Baden-Wurttemberg Wedding Photographer]
Raised in a family of artists, i got early very close to art and creating images in multiple ways. However, while the others were more concerned with painting, I grabbed the camera more often and so it was that I was the one who was responsible for the family photos. I started my photography-business with Portraits, Event-Photography and photojournalistic work for print-magazines. In 2011, a popular photo-magazine interviewed me and published a report about me. Since a number of years now, i feel that i am so much more enthusiastic about real moments, about happy people and about the magic of a wedding than about anything else. I love to catch joyful moments full of love and happiness. I believe that your wedding is about you and your guests.Even your wedding photos are one of the most precious memories i will not intervene in scenes. Aufgewachsen in einer Künstler-Familie bin ich schon sehr früh mit der Kunst und dem Kreieren von Bildern in Berührung gekommen. Während sich die Anderen jedoch mehr mit der Malerei befasst haben, schnappte ich mir immer öfter die Kamera und schon bald war ich diejenige, die für die Fotos im Familienalbum verantwortlich war. Mein fotografische Arbeit startete ich mit Portraits, Event-Fotografie und Fotojournalistischer Arbeit für Print-Magazine. Im Jahr 2011 kontaktierte mich ein bekanntes Foto-Magazin, was dann einen Bericht über mich und meine Bilder veröffentlichte. Seit einigen Jahren nun merke ich, dass ich eine viel größere Begeisterung für echte Momente, glückliche Menschen und die Magie einer Hochzeit habe als für alles andere im fotografischen Bereich. Ich liebe diese lebendigen Momente, voll von Emotionen, Glück und Liebe einzufangen. Bei Ihrer Hochzeit geht es um Sie und Ihre Gäste und auch wenn Ihre Hochzeitsfotos die wertvollsten Erinnerungen sind, werde ich nicht in Szenen eingreifen oder mich gar als Ihr Hochzeitsfotograf in den Fokus rücken. [Rheinland-Pfalz Wedding Photographer]

Hi! My name is Vladimir, I'm a wedding photographer, 46 years old and I'm from Münster. My first encounter with photography was in 2002, when I first picked up a compact camera. Before that, I never thought that I would be a photographer. Of course, my first pictures were not perfect, luckily I had friends who supported me with simple words - "Keep it going, that works well". I met my teacher, who taught me to see the beauty of everyday life, in 2003. This was a professional photographer from Ryazan Eugeniy Kashirin. His teaching was never strict - "You have to do it that way" - no, he always said: I would do it ... Even though he had died of cancer to my great regret, his words impressed me deeply a: "Photography is the art of the moment". Like every amateur, I tried different kinds of photography, then I realized what my heart is - the people and their emotions - the indescribable, fast-moving things that can be captured with a camera. And where you can see the real and unencumbered, if not the most beautiful day of her life ... That's why I photograph weddings, I'm always on the hunt for unforgettable moments that they can enjoy after many years. And that's the main value of photography for me - that I can capture your feelings in my photos. At some point you will show these photos to your children. I want you to smile while watching, remember your emotions and return to a moment back in that time ... [North Rhine-Westphalia Wedding Photographer]

[Baden-Wurttemberg Wedding Photographer]
I am an independent and passionate photographer. However, I do not run around with my camera all day long hunting for new motives. Rather, I like to dedicate myself to my hobbies. Especially mountain biking is fun. In addition, music plays a large and creative role in my spare time. For some years I play guitar in a band. I love traveling and attach great importance to my family and friends. I am always happy when I can live my creativity as a photographer. Always looking for new creative picture ideas. The individual reportage is in my focus. Because I want to capture your day authentically. That's exactly what I love about my job so much. Look around here and browse through the many wedding photos and stories. [Rheinland-Pfalz Wedding Photographer]

I started to photograph weddings 11 years ago. I love shooting weddings more each year because there are so many great couples photographers doing weddings out there and that is really inspiring for me. Wedding photography combines portraits, nature, documentary and that is what I like: People and life! My approach to wedding photography is: be very reliable, understand the people and be creative. As a female photographer, I have a very intuitive approach, but I also love technical stuff like my Nikon Cameras and my Profoto Flashes..) I live in Heidelberg, but love to travel. You can book me all over the world and I will come! [Baden-Wurttemberg Wedding Photographer]
My name is Pati and I am an elopement and wedding photographer in Essen, 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! What is particularly important for me in wedding reports? The little gestures. His look, your smile. Your feelings will also be expressed without words and I will hold these for you. You like to laugh together and are not afraid of the camera? Woohooo! Then let's create something nice together - your personal love story. [Essen Wedding Photographer]
I was born and raised in Italy, in a small town in the mountains of the south called San Giovanni in Fiore, in the beautiful heart of the Sila. I studied graphics and photography in the great city of renaissance and culture in Florence, and now I live with my little family for a few years, a time of the year in Germany and the other time in Italy - depending on the wedding season. I am very much in love with my girlfriend and our first and wonderful child! I like to travel a lot, meet new people and hear their stories, but most of all, I love to play the guitar. When my son hears that, it makes him very happy and he starts to jump back and forth and shake his head like crazy. One less thing I like to do is spend half an hour brushing my crazy mane until it looks reasonably normal again! I've always had a passion for photography, especially street photography, the great portrait photographer and the great documentarists like Henri Cartier Bresson, Vivian Maier, Steve McCurry, Arnold Newman, Irving Penn, Diane Arbus, Edouard Boubat Sebastião Salgado - and it is these too that inspire me in my work. [Leipzig Wedding Photographer]
Daughter, sister, wife, mother, photographer of couples in love and happy people, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1986. I specialized in family photography with a lifestyle concept and documentary wedding photography in Brazil. Photography has always been my greatest passion. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by images and every single story behind them. And my inspiration for photography comes from music, subtleties of life, from romance ... every wedding and every family is always something very special for me. An important aspect for me of documentary photography is that it has to be timeless. This photo/photograph has great value today but will grow in value over time. Do you remember your favorite photos from 10, 20, 30 years ago or more? You can see that this photo has a lot more value today than the day it was taken. And in a few years, it will surely increase in value. So we have to get rid of fashion in photography, put Instagram filters aside and think about producing pictures that will be current even in 10, 20, 30 or more years. In front of us is what we want to see, very valuable and timeless photos. This is one of my big goals in documentary photography of a wedding. If you like my work and identify yourself with it, contact me and let me share your story! [Bavaria Wedding Photographer]
Fille graduated as a pharmacist in 2010 but soon felt this profession was not his true calling. During his studies, he got fascinated by photography. Two years after his graduation he started taking his hobby to a new level by photographing parties and events he would normally attend as a guest. Especially attracted by beautiful light and human emotions he started photographing big festivals and parties around the globe. After 3 years of combining these 2 jobs, he gradually got drawn into weddings and kept evolving ever since. Today he has shot about 140 weddings in about 7 years time. And he usually shoots about 23 weddings per year nowadays. He has always been inspired by numerous different photographers, which influences his work in a very diverse way. Alex Webb has inspired him to explore the world of layering. Fille's own background as a festival photographer has brought him a very dynamic style of shooting, focussed on human emotion, light, and colors. Fille is also a keen travel photographer and loves to combine this with his job as a wedding photographer. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]
My name is Boni Bonev, I was born in Svilengrad (Bulgaria) in 1970 and I live in Sofia (Bulgaria) since 1985. I am married and have two children. For the first time I touched the magic of photography when I was 7 years old, watching images appearing on a white sheet of photo paper in the darkroom of my uncle. Since then, photography has become my favorite pastime, and since 1991 with some interruptions also became a source of income. I love to paint with light, no matter if someone will pay me for it or not. Precisely for this reason, I always try to accept orders that will meet my personal preferences and understanding of photography. I like the reportage photography and the way of its making - with many unique moments caught without manipulation. I love working with natural light where possible, although I have a studio downtown in Sofia. As a founding member and administrator of the largest Bulgarian site on photography Photo Forum , I have arranged with my colleagues over 30 photographic competitions and exhibitions. Personally, I participated in many group exhibitions, and I have my own as well. They can be found in my personal site. Since I am master of science in electronics, I've always been interested in photographic equipment. I have written over 200 pages, photographic articles in print media, some of them technical. I am also the author of dozens of online tests in the Photo Forum of photographic cameras and lenses. I am coauthor of the first Bulgarian online photography tutorial "How to make better pictures with a digital camera", and the photographic book " In Focus ". Since 2005 me and my colleagues guided photographic courses in Sofia . With wedding and other commercial photography I work more intensively for several years. As you can see in my portfolio, I like clean, not manipulated photography with captured many moments, portraits and details. I love black and white photography, because it shows better real graphic pattern of light. Freed from unnecessary colors, photography remains just as volume, shape, light and storyline. I love metaphoric stories where one has to think, not just to perceive directly what he saw. I use camera with high resolution 24,5 mp and fast lenses , which re-create in better way the natural ambience of the place and minimize the introduction of artificial light. [Sofia Wedding Photographer]
At the last moment just a child from the 80s. I live in Wijnegem, but my heart is in Antwerp. I studied graphic design there and now I share a coworking space, so I spend a lot of my time there. I love my one-eyed cat Gusar (he is otherwise perfectly fine), but other animals can also appeal to me. For example, I am the godparent of an orphan elephant somewhere in Thailand. One day I will travel there to visit her. Immediately a good reason to explore an extra piece of the world. [Antwerpen 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]
My photography must exceed your expectations. I laid the foundations at the Fotovakschool, I followed courses, but the most important thing: I followed my heart. I have found the perfect balance between ambition, challenge and love in my constant search for the perfect picture. My portfolio is proof of that. I want to create something. Something deep personal. I want to make the real connection with people. Being present in the unconditional love that two people feel for each other. Capturing it, it is a homage that gives me unbridled energy. ['s-Hertogenbosch Wedding Photographer]
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 7 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]
My name is Ivelina and I can say photography is my passion! For nine years now I am a freelance photographer. Each and every one of these 9 years I continued upgrading - I would participate in a masterclass of some of my favourite photographers, simply for inspiration and to improve. In 2017 I realized an independent exhibition with 36 female portraits. But I also have separate participation in other exhibitions. Memories engage our emotions! Things we lived through, our background, is what remains in our hearts. But our memory is fragile and it is photography that makes the blurred memories bright. It makes it possible for us to remember those moments that make our life unique. Personally, for me, photography is both love and art, combined in one. The ability to see the good in every person and situation and show it in the best way possible. I experience moments in every wedding as a unique and such a special day, because I realize this is going to be the only time that all these people come together at this place, at the same time, looking for the relations between them, all those strong and deep emotions, smiling faces, the love and tears of happiness. And I love being there to capture it all! [Sofia Wedding Photographer]
I was born in Colombia, and at the age of 20 I came to live to study cinematography in Septima Ars, and then Professional photography and master in digital Photography in Efti. I have been a freelance photographer for 15 years, created my own company Veroa, and now I identify as Momenticos by Rocio Vega. My personal evolution is very tied to my professional evolution, always learning and evolving, always thirsty of life and knowledge. The emotions create our memories. The things we´ve been through, all that we have lived intensely remains guarded in our heart. But our memory is fragile and photography makes those blurry recollections recover brightness, gives us the possibility of remembering forever these instants that make our life unique. My passion is to capture the best way those momenticos, this small instants in which the soul undresses and teaches its essence. I live through every wedding as a great celebration being conscious that probably this one will be the only time that all of them are in the same place simultaneously, looking for the connections, the bounds that join them, that one that thrills them and makes them cry of happiness. [Leon Wedding Photographer]
I’m a wedding photographer for couples who love the documentary style and real moments. I also love to create creative portraits and romantic images as well. I have been documenting weddings for ten years. I have witnessed more than 600 couples' love stories all around the world so far. I mostly like destination weddings. I love to discover new places and to meet new people and also love to learn about different cultures as well. I have had an interest in photography since I started to know myself. I have always tried to freeze the moments even in my younger ages. Moments have been matters for me for all my life. I spent years studying Statistics at University, with no idea what I might do with it. It is really shaming that I can’t complete any master degrees which I have attended 3 different master programme. After spending some years in corporate life as a banker than a research and marketing specialist, I found myself a full-time wedding photographer. I have started to shoot with my compact camera at my friend’s weddings in 2005 regardless of knowing that it is going to not also my profession but also my life. I have been shooting weddings since 2009 as a professional. I had the chance to capture weddings in different countries and cultures like Greece, France, Germany, Italy, United States, Czech Republic. Looking forward to new places, beautiful couples, and new adventures. I used to shoot nearly 50 weddings in a year but now; I am trying to limit the number to 30. I love conferences, workshops, online courses and every article about wedding photography. I have been still attending many workshops and conferences. I had the chance to learn new techniques and approach from the best wedding photographers in the world. Learning is a timeless process for me. [Ankara Wedding Photographer]
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]
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]
Paulo Castro began his photographic journey in 2003. It all began as a hobby. In "the National Park of Peneda-Gerês," where his first pictures were taken, he learned to watch the light and understand the photographic technique. He devoted himself to photography of nature and portrait, having stood out in “specialist” magazines and on online sites. Later, between 2005 and 2010, other work was done in other several areas, especially in extreme sports and reporting in nightclubs. In 2010, he conducts his own project, to a momentous register and of memory and also begins to dream of the possibility of becoming a full-time photographer. With the birth of my daughter, Inês Castro in 2013, my greatest dream had come true. Since then my daughter has been the source of my inspiration in my professional career. Every moment is captured naturally and through it, I tell a story of reality. The photograph is what remains to later be remembered. I photograph for passion!!! [Braga Wedding Photographer]

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]
My mission is to document the true emotions, sincere moments and beauty. As the wedding photographer I am always on the prowl after opportunities, through which I document spirit of wedding day. No matter what wedding you wish, I will catch the beauty of your special day and treasure it in photographs forever. I am Goran Vadlja Kamenjašević, born in Croatia. We moved to a mining town Velenje in Slovenia only few months after my birth. I was growing up in Velenje and this town devised me and it still fills me with creative ideas. I finished primary school and mining technical high school in Velenje. Afterwards I was working as the electrical assembler in some European and American cities for almost four years. Even in that time I got engaged in photography, that I was tying up with my travels and photographing of regions as at the beginning and much more in this time. I returned to Velenje in 2008 and got employed in Premogovnik Velenje, where I still work. I had several working accidents as a miner within eight years of my working there. When I was recovering at home after the group accident in 2014, I used the time for deliberation about further career. At that time I decided, that I wanted to make something creative in my life, in which I can express myself. I decided for the directional participation in photography with study on department for photography on VIST in Ljubljana. I am creating in different genres of photography. From personal, conceptual and street projects, to commercial and sport photography. In this moment I can find myself the most in wedding photography. Every wedding is a new challenge for me. I try to find something in every couple, which is tying them up , something that is creating only their story. I am positioning spontaneous moments, easiness and genuineness to top priority. I am true documentarian who will keep your memories in photographs and shape them in to photobooks, witch will be timeless evidence of love. [Velenje Wedding Photographer]
My name is Krisztian Bozso. I am a wedding photographer and videographer based in Hungary. I started photography in 2010 as a part-time wedding and elopement photographer. In this time I was working for several local sites as a photojournalist. Since then it is my full-time job and my lovely hobby. Besides weddings I take portraits, engagements and couple sessions. I don't use flashes, just natural lights. I love details and emotional moments. Since 2018 I have been making wedding videos. [Budapest Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Ronnie, born and grown up in Hong Kong, a tiny spot on our planet where 'East meets West'~ I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job, and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic technique and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding photography. Since then, I was lucky enough to cover weddings not only in Hong Kong, but also in Germany, Australia and China, with couples from various countries including France, Netherlands, Canada, South Korea and more. It's not an easy ride for sure, but I am glad that I have came through all these years and my love of wedding photojournalism simply grows with time! Besides photography, I'm a travelholic, although there are so many wonderful places yet for me to discover. Just like wedding photojournalism, I will never get bored of it! [Hong Kong Wedding Photographer]
As a kid, I always wanted to preserve forever moments that were special to me, such as birthday parties and family Christmases. When I was eight years old, my father made that possible for me by giving me his old camera. From then on, I became the de facto family photographer and started documenting every get-together. I didn't know it at the time, but all that practice ended up preparing me for my career as an adult. That same passion for capturing moments for people has naturally led me to become a wedding and elopement photographer. Together with my husband/business partner, I have now been helping couples document their wedding days for several years. We primarily serve brides and grooms in the Washington, DC, area, but are always available to travel for destination weddings. We have lived on five different continents and speak five languages fluently, so it is easy for us to take our passion for photography to exotic wedding locations.

On most weekends you can find Kurt capturing weddings and portrait sessions for discerning clients from around the world. His clean, sleek style is a combination of his award-winning photojournalism background and his ability to see and use light in a creative, artistic way. Kurt's approach: to capture artistically and creatively how you two felt during those very special moments in time. Though based in Prague, Kurt regularly works in Italy and was chosen as the wedding photographer for the Getty wedding in Rome as well as a member of President Harmid Karzai's family during their wedding in Italy. In addition to various VIP weddings, Kurt was also the chosen photographer for no less than 6 professional wedding photographers from the US, UK, Ireland and Spain. Though he enjoys the large weddings, Kurt is actively pursing couples who desire to have an intimate experience where in addition to having their weddings captured, they also have a day and or night time portrait session to create a body of work that will both impress and wow their family & friends. This type of session (reportage and a mixture of art directed night time portraits) is not for everyone but for those who invest in this style – they are never let down. Kurt Vinion is a 2 x 1st Place winner in The Best of Photojournalism for his magazine & news reporting.

I was fascinated by photography since I can remember. My education with photographic and architectural elements led to the work as a freelance photographer and architect. The work with the Leica M and Fuji X system brought me to wedding photojournalism and closer to the passion of capturing honest moments and details with a camera, that one would not usually notice.

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]
I thought a lot before I write something about me as a photographer for wedding and in the end I think my photographs should speak for me. The approach that I have of the wedding event is that of a narrator of an original story: your wedding, with the understanding that what you’ll receive will be kept with you throughout your life and will be revised again and again. I made Wedding Reportage services especially in Milan and Lakes in North of Italy as well in Germany. The cut of the photographic story of your wedding is journalistic and this is why I present my wedding service as a reportage on you, on those around you and the environment you have chosen. Over the years my photographic work has been reported and reviewed on different newspaper and magazines and here I inform you about some of them. I have been indicated on the most important Italian Newspaper “Corriere della Sera” in January 2003 for my exhibition “One” relative to my manipulations on Polaroid film. In Sept. 2012 some of my images have been published in the journal of marriage “in Wedding” by Condé Nast and lately I have done photographs for IIR Italian Copper Institute in cooperation with Leica Italy Srl for the article “materials of the everyday” published in Issue Dec13/Jan14 on the national magazine of Design “Ottagono” written both in Italian and English language.

Hello, I am Marli Eggelaar from WeGraphy Wedding photography! I was raised in Nuenen, a village near Eindhoven. A real Brabander who loves to work hard and play hard! Since I remember I was interested in photography and catching the moment. In 2006 I made a trip to Australia together with my now husband. Just before we left I bought my very first SLR camera. My father helped me because photography runs in the family :) My husband got crazy during the Aussie trip since I was constantly dreaming away behind the camera. Playing with the shutter speed and aperture and see what would happen. The feeling I got when I made that once in a lifetime shot made me very happy. I really enjoyed being creative. Doing something different than the status quo in photography. Although I was not a pro yet I mainly focused on finding the right light and the most beautiful colors. In 2013 I decided to my first photography study. At that point, I came to the conclusion that to me wedding photography is the one thing in life that makes me utterly happy. People, emotions, stories, and especially love, beautiful! And to be able to record that and be meaningful for others in that way. This suits me. In early 2017 I started to pursue my dreams, quit my day job and fully focus on full-time on wedding photography. Now, some years later I can say wedding photography is my dayjob. Every year I participate in courses, training, and seminars to constanly develop my style and signature even further. Friends describe me as caring, creative, perfectionist, and a persevering attitude. I prefer to register rather than direct. You will not see me. I remain low profile so the couple can relax and enjoy the day. I will never intervene in the real moments of your day. I record the events when they occur. I try to have as limited as possible posed photos. Those real pure love moments are so beautiful! In addition, I am extremely patient and wait 20 minutes in one spot to make the best photo.

Hi there! My name is Arjan Barendregt. When this is written, I am 38 years old, married and father of 1 little boy. I think that my story could be a copy of most of the other wedding photographers: started as a hobby and now a professional photographer. It all started when I was about 12-15 years old. My father forced me to search for a hobby: 'stop wasting your time behind the television!' So that's when I bought my first analog camera: an old Praktica. I high school I followed my first course. This was an extra lesson we could follow besides the normal subjects. I bought books in secondhand markets and the only thing I did was practice, practice, and practice... Taking a lot of photos meant that I also had to develop a lot of pictures. Most of my money was in letting all the photos develop. That's why I started to shoot only slides. I became a member of our local photo club. All of the members were older men, I was the only teenager. So this wasn't a good match. But I learned a lot. Years went by, the new cameras were bought, and I bought my first digital camera. No DSRL, but a Sony which saved the pictures on real floppy disks. Can you imagine?! I bought my first DSRL about 8 years ago and this helped me to develop my own style. The only pictures I made were those of our holidays. I proudly showed them to all our friends and relatives. It didn't take long or my best friend asked me to shoot their wedding. And that's how it all started. I am now a professional wedding photographer, shooting 40-45 weddings a year at home and abroad. The most important thing for me at weddings is trying to become 1 of the guests and not being Mr the Photographer. This is how I want to capture everybody just the way they are and not how the act before my camera. "Photography is about capturing souls, not smiles." [Zuid Holland Wedding Photographer]
Always in love with the world of photography, with how you can make everyday moments, emotions and stories into something unforgettable. Relive those moments, try the same sensations every time just looking at a photograph, well, it's wonderful for me! After a long collaboration with an important photographic studio, I decided to go my own way, and now I am here, ready to be part of your story, to tell you how much special will happen in your life. [Udine Wedding Photographer]
I am a wedding photographer and filmmaker based out of the Netherlands. Here in The Netherlands there are not many professionals that can do both at the same time. With yearly 30 up to 40 weddings per year I am experienced in the most versatile conditions. With my brand Lovin' You I am traveling across the world capturing weddings, but still mainly active in The Netherlands. I am very relaxing and calm, which make it very pleasing for the wedding couple and guests as they can be themselves even with a camera in front of their face. [Hoofddorp Wedding Photographer]
Talk about my biography & it seemed a little presumptuous to me, because often, reading the bio of the others, I remember a certain sense of inadequacy, because unlike many adults, I have never attended famous and expensive schools of photography, but I have learned through the years, trying and experimenting with everything, while I was attending university and working to win my longed-for journalist's card. Born in 1977, graduated in communication, I began to become familiar with the camera from an early age, using as a first tool a fantastic polaroid, a gift from the first communion. And from that moment I never stopped, studying the technique in the manuals that I passed on hand and practicing in the field, photographing anything that passed under my nose. In the following years then, I switched to the various analog reflexes and finally to the digital ones after 2005. Today I am a professional photojournalist, mainly dealing with Palio photography, reportage, wedding, and photography, collaborating with various local agencies and newspapers. [Siena Wedding Photographer]
We live in a small farmhouse near Maastricht Netherlands. I love wandering through the fields and the woods with our dogs, especially on rainy days. I’ve been into photography for as long as I can remember and I've attended many, many workshops by international wedding and documentary photographers all over the world. If you like you can check my personal website with my other photography work on shabbywalls.com. It's about portraits, street photography, and reportage. [Limburg-NL Wedding Photographer]
I am a professional photographer with 15 years of work experience. I entered the wedding industry some 8 years ago. I shoot around 20 wedding per year. Since I enjoy photography a lot I also do some other subjects apart from wedding and event photography. To name some: business portrait, architecture and some commercial work as well. This experience gives me a wide skill set that I also use during my wedding shoots and reportage. I also exhibit sometimes like for example at the end of 2017 I had a personal exhibition in Paris with my "Layers" series. Apart from photography, I have a huge interest in my family, music, and cars :) With my wife, we have a little girl and a boy who are adorable. Being a husband and a father I have to be well organized that I am and I am really happy with it :) [Krakow Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Furkan. I'm shooting weddings professionally since 2016. I studied Cinema at Atatürk University. I've been working as a photographer and director on various projects since my university years. My goal is to approach the weddings I shot with a documentary perspective and make your most special day as enjoyable as possible for you and myself. Every moment on your wedding day is very precious and I am here to record them in their most natural way. [Manisa Wedding Photographer]
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]

Dear Michael, Dear Nadja, We would like to thank you again for the photos. Sabrina and I are really happy with the results and many wonderful moments were captured. We can fully recommend you and wish you many great weddings and especially wedding couples that will make you happy. Greetings Sabrina & Matthias
I never realized how emotionally intense a wedding photo shoot can not to mention the busy schedule of the day. Every time I look at the photos I relive those moments and there is always a tear of happiness in my eye. Thank you Serenay for making our day eternal.
Thank you so much Ronnie for photographing our wedding registration in October. We are absolutely delighted with the results! You are very professional and took a lot of candid photos of us. This is exactly what we are looking for, a photographer who can capture the real moment and emotion of the day for us. You certainly has a knack for capturing natural and fun memories and producing very high quality images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives . We highly recommend you to others looking for a professional and fun photographer!
Ronnie, thank you for being our photographer and documenting our wedding in Hong Kong. We are thankful for the communication and the way you try to understand our wants in the consultation process. The locations you scouted for us were aptly chosen and fit well with our story and background. The candid moments you captured in our homes, the banquet hall, and on the streets of Hong Kong gave us much bragging rights and most of all, the perfect way to cherish a special day. We are also thankful for the extra effort you took in creating the custom-made memory drive and photo box. Thank you very much.
Back in the Netherlands now after a relaxing week at the beach. I just wanted to write a short note to say thanks for the support and low-key interaction last Sunday (particularly during the preparations and family photos!) which definitely added to my enjoyment and fun for the day! Also for the tip on holding the flowers :-)
Dear Martin You have enriched our wedding in so many ways. Back then, you introduced yourself to the words that on that day, you will not be "just" our wedding photographer, but also friend and guest at the same time. And you were so much more for us that day. Throughout the day, you helped us with advice, action and camera. Again and again we were asked by our guests how long we have known each other, and again and again we earned incredulous looks when we said we see each other the second time today. And so not only we, but also all our guests, both of you as a human being, as well as of your photographic skills were completely thrilled. You've captured this unforgettable day forever from start to finish in so many beautiful moments, and that's priceless. Christina and Thomas
Thank you so much for your help on our wedding day. You are the best photographer a bride & groom could ask for. Your relaxed and kind hearted nature made us both feel so comfortable on the day and the lead up. You captured some very special moments that Julia and I will treasure forever. Our album is AMAZING! We have said it before and will say it again - You are the best!!!!!!
Love all the captures, and people’s reactions and emotions. Priceless! Thank you so much Ronnie for being a huge part in our multiple wedding events! We are so thankful that we have found you and guess what, it's only the beginning. Many more events we love to have your help in documenting!! Through your lens, we were able to see what we didn't on those days and get to relive in those moments again.
Dear Martin, Now our wedding and baptism is exactly 3 weeks ago today and we did not want to miss the opportunity to thank you again for everything. It was an unforgettable and unique event for us, captured with many amazing and emotional pictures of you for us forever. We always like to look at the pictures and reminisce. Thank you also for your totally relaxed, calming and open nature and of course for your flexibility (with our little daughter Jana). We would love to book you anytime again! Best regards Petra & Markus with Jana
