I'm a female photographer. I love tea, I’m a dreamer and a collector of all kinds of old stuff. I love old photo cameras and ancient books. Music is always in my life. I’m a busy bee with lots of humor, mom of two kids and married to the love of my life. And I’m always looking for that one picture to create. After photography school, I’ve made my own Rebel plan. I love my freedom, so no oppressive photo studio or uni-colored backgrounds. Outdoor on location, that’s where you are going to find me. In the forest or on the beach, enjoying the sunshine or dance in the rain. I think it’s fantastic to be able to capture people as they are and especially as it is. To create a special and pure reminder for later. I think that’s very important. I bought my first DSLR in 1997. In 2007 I switched from analog to digital. In 2010 I started with Rebel Shots.

My starting point is making documentary wedding photography. I mix between the guests and I go my way unnoticed. Fine-art photography is very important for displaying your togetherness in a beautiful setting. That is how it becomes art. Posing photos can always be made, but I do that in a spontaneous way. That way I give it a cheerful twist and it does not get too fussy. I work ground-breaking, for the ultimate. This is how my passion continues to flourish. All this gives a complete picture of your wedding day, so that it becomes a document for now and for later generations. [Noord Holland Wedding Photographer]

Jaimie Peeters - destination wedding photographer, Netherlands

I'm a so-called "What you see is what you get" kinda guy. Always enthusiastic and eager to find and experience the most beautiful things in life. Ever since I can remember I was drawing on everything I could find. Also making music and dancing was a huge part of my childhood. And even now I tend to spend my days mostly creating something. After having spent more than 10 years traveling the world as an electronic music artist, visiting the furthest corners of the world, it was a logical step that I became a photographer. Translating all these years of collected inspiration into imagery. By now I have been photographing for over another 10 years! The first period of my photographic journey I spent shooting Fashion. It now really helps me to find beauty in everything. Together with my true passion; cinema, I now have a unique style that is a combination of journalistic with the flair of fashion. My work is candid, but I always seem to find a way to make it look like it could land in a fashion magazine. My dream is to make my own feature film someday, but I doubt I will ever want to stop shooting weddings. It's the one time, the one place on earth where literally everybody is beautiful, full of emotion and there is always something happening every second. It's heaven for a photographer like me.

I'm a Devon based multi-award-winning photographer shooting wherever needed for the right couple. If what I do suits you I can be there if you want me. My approach is people-centric - the wedding is all about the people, and the celebration for me. At the end of the day, my intention is to create a record for you, a description of what the day felt like from the inside. The pictures should be a reflection of who you are so that when you (or your kids in years to come) look at them you see yourself at your wedding, not some cutout couple at a generic wedding that looks like something straight out of a bridal blog.

Campania and Naples wedding photography by Luca Salvemini of Italy

Luca Salvemini was born in Naples in 1981. Second-born of three brothers, he approached photography on the day of his First Communion, thanks to a compact Olympus given to him by an uncle. His passion becomes a life choice when he enrolls in the Faculty of Psychology, where his studies and background allow him to develop an innovative approach to work, a mix of passion, understanding, and emotion. Time and experience will be too strong, and Luca will form part of his method on the ability to establish true and empathetic relationships with couples. After intense training at the Scuola Romana di Fotografia and a very strong apprenticeship in a Photo Studio, he decides to leave Italy and approach a new work experience in Amsterdam. In a few months, he gives his first solo show at the Amsterdam Royal Gallery. After a couple of years in the Netherlands, he returns to Naples where he decides to found Life Photography together with Davide. He is a huge fan of U2 band. It is impossible to count on the fingers of two hands the number of concerts he has assisted to, in Italy and in Europe. Indeed, as soon as he has free time it is likely to find him shooting pictures around the world with his camera living the experiences of the places. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

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!

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat.
