Hesse Wedding Photographer Steven Herrschaft, of Germany

"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.

Markdorf wedding and elopement photography by Michael Geyer of Baden-Wurttemberg Germany

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]

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.

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.

Hong Kong Wedding Photographer Ronnie Szeto

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!

Padua wedding and elopement photography by Valeria Berti of Veneto Italy

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 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.

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.

Sofia Wedding and Elopement Day Photography by Ivelina Cholakova, of Bulgaria

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]

Washington DC Elopement and Wedding Photography by Anji Martin

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.

But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

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

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.

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.

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

Dear Ronnie, we just finished reading all the photos. They are awesome and bring back all the memories. To be honest, I have had many hiccups organizing this wedding but I am so blessed having to know you. The pictures are truly beautiful, I am out of words showing my thankfulness other than these two words. Thank you once again Ronnie. The photo film is amazing too.

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.
