Alessandro Castelli is an elopement and wedding photographer from Italy - WPJA of Sicilia and Siracusa.

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

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

From a Japanese mother born in Brazil and a Corsican father, I am a child of the world. Diversity is obviously a wealth and it is also what makes each of us unique. Happy married and daddy of two lovely kids, I am naturally animated by exchange and sharing. Each meeting is, therefore, a great openness to the world. I endeavor to produce wedding and elopement images without any artifice and faithful to the precious slices of life that you offer me. My first concern is indeed to get photos as you are, hence my lifestyle approach. I, therefore, propose to you my gaze on your future moments of happiness. If my images appeal to you and my approach speaks to you, I would be glad if we discussed your photographic expectations, whether it be around a beer, a coffee, by telephone, skype or by email.

Moscow wedding photography by Sasha Dzyubchuk of Russia

My name is Sasha and when I am not busy traveling the world and capturing the most precious moments in people’s lives, I am a full-time parent to Gosha (the pup on my back). My sole goal is to translate the precious moments my clients invite me to witness: naturally, effortlessly and full of love. When working, I try to be everywhere and nowhere all at once, so I can capture the tiniest details. I am continuously uplifted by the beauty of the world and draw my inspiration from magazines and films. [Moscow Wedding Photographer]

Nicky Byrnes wedding photography for Lake Tahoe and Northern CA

I’ve had a camera in my hand since I can remember. On family vacations each of us had a camera and would come back with several rolls of film. It was great to see different perspectives of the same place. My photos became more refined throughout my childhood as I graduated to my stepdad’s Minolta film SLR. As a teenager and self professed “scene-kid” my interests turned to boys, music and books so my photos changed as well. I would deck myself out in black eyeliner weekly to shoot photographs of my favorite musicians. Bands are still one of my favorite photo subjects by the way, so be prepared if you get me started talking about them. In college I dedicated myself to photography professionally with a degree in photojournalism, then found my calling with a wedding studio at 19. I’ve since been published in Paste and XLR8R print magazines as well as Billboard Online, Tahoe Unveiled, Borrowed and Blue, The Knot, and Wedding Wire Blogs. On a more personal note, I’m a former Michigander who has called north Lake Tahoe her home since October 2011. I still miss Michigan beer (the best in the world, don’t argue), cherries, pasties (savory meat pies found in the UP) and warm nights but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere but Tahoe. I’m fascinated by all the quirky, wild, backwoods parts of America and I’m only missing four states on my quest to 50; Oklahoma, New Mexico, Maine and Alaska. I love all things outdoors. I hike or mountain bike almost every day with my Irish Wolfhound/Greyhound mix, Lindy and my big crazy Great Dane Captain. I also love to ski (badly), SUP and kayak, and volunteer with Achieve Tahoe. When I’m not shooting, sleeping or eating popcorn, I’m probably with my husband of almost one year, Keegan! [Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer]

I love weddings! Capturing the essence and the fun of the day is the most rewarding job you can ever imagine. I offer a documentary type of photography with an artistic touch.

Normandy wedding photography by Typhanie Piton of France

It all began in Ireland, where I bought my first camera with my student loan, to photograph the landscapes and my friends gigging in pubs. Back in France, after a year as a journalist in a local newspaper, I decided to keep only the photographic part of my job and start my own business. I've been a wedding photographer since. It was 8 years ago, and I'll do it all over again. Still going to Ireland a lot. It's where I get most of my inspiration, where I believe in myself, where I take the time to breathe, feel and recharge my batteries. I'm also addicted to dancing, especially to West Coast Swing: for it's movement, fluidity and importance of connection. The exact same qualities I'm looking for in photography.

Sweden wedding photography by Ana Mihalic of Lund, Skane

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

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

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. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case.

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

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
