GVK Goran Vadlja Kamenjašević Elopement and Wedding Photography for Velenje

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]

Slovenia wedding and elopement photos by Vanessa Tivadar of Europe

I’m really incredibly lucky that my mom continued my grandfather’s tradition, and carefully captured our family moments through the lens all these years. I’m happy to look at these old photos when I was quite young, and my favorites are the ones we’re all in together. I am sure that your children will appreciate just that. When they are 20, 30, 40 years old, they will be grateful to you for investing in memories that will stay with them forever! The first person in the family to do photography was my grandfather. People still remember how they met him, loaded with photographic equipment, all over Pomurje. During his tenure, he spent countless films, thus stopping the time of countless events and views. He chased through the lens everything from innocent childish views to a landscape that changes over the years just as we humans change. The photographic baton in the family was taken over by my mother. As a child, she observed my grandfather at work, who was then employed at the Fotolik Celje company in Ljutomer. Her love of photography took her to Ljubljana, where she attended a school for photographers. She chose her studio because she always wanted to create on her own and did not want to be hindered by anyone. He says it’s in photography like in life. Experience, knowledge and wisdom are important. During the weekends, I went with my mom to take photos. When I saw the enthusiasm of the customers for the product, which also included my photos, I received confirmation that my decision was the right one. The desire to meet new people, socialize with them, and match their stories into the lens became even stronger. After finishing high school, I continued my education at the Vocational College of Photography in Sežana, where I graduated in wedding photography. I like to get to know people and their characters through the lens, as it seems to me that the camera really catches every sparkle in my eyes and that genuine expression on my face.

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.

Photography isn’t my passion. People are. How they interact, how they feel and how they show Love. My camera is just my tool to capture their essence. I love portrait photography, but also food, lifestyle, and landscape photography. I'm most inspired by: · Beauty - I see it everywhere. · Impermanence - nothing exists for indefinitely long, that’s why I try to catch this kiss, that look, those smiles on photos, ‘forever’. · Truth. · Charm of imperfection - Yes, please! Self-driven every day, because Life is such a gift! I am living between Sardinia and Ibiza but grew up in a lovely Slovenia. If I have to choose between the sea or forest, I always go for the forest. I just came from Belgrade, where I was invited to have my solo exhibition on portraits - I completely recommend this city, it's awesome! [Sardinia Wedding Photographer]
