I’ve never met a wedding photographer from Europe or the US who wasn’t dreaming about shooting a real traditional Hindu wedding one day. The huge bonus on top of that wish is to shoot a traditional Hindu wedding in India. Just like all those photographers, for as long as I’ve been a wedding photographer, I’ve had a dream of shooting such a wedding. So getting an enquiry from Suparna one day in the fall of 2014, was one of the most amazing things that happened to us that same fall...
Last season has been an adventurous and a great one. I skipped on blogging about some earlier awards, getting myself info working on weddings for as much as I could. But today we received some new awards.
Let me start with: it’s been such a crazy year. And mostly in a good way which makes me really thankful. We travelled to several countries, we experienced some amazing things and we worked A LOT. Majority of the time was probably spent working, either on all of beautiful weddings or in front of the computer screens. But we got so much in return and I think that year in front of us will be year to enjoy in that.
Seeing new places, meeting new people, having new experiences… those are the things I could never get enough of. And this amazing wedding in France was a combination of first times in everything. First time we visited Lyon, first time we shot Romanian-French couple combination and met their cultures and our first time ever to shoot a third wedding of a same couple. Yes, third.
Those few days while Candy and Stanley were visiting Split, have been so “cheerful” because of the weather that we had to change a few timeframes before finding the right one. But the two of them couldn’t be bothered at all and that was the crucial element which made the whole day very fun and beautiful.
Dubrovnik is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world to get married at. So many couples tying the knot every year on their destination weddings prove that. On the other hand, Melbourne in Australia is one of the greatest cities in the world to live in. Its cultural and ethnical mix plus amazing spirit makes it so attractive and special. So what do you get when you have a fantastic couple living in Melbourne and coming to get married in Dubrovnik? Only the most amazing, fun and unpredictable wedding you can imagine…
Every time I receive an enquiry for some new wedding destination, I feel excited, inspired and very interested in learning and seeing more. It’s only a great bonus when such an enquiry comes from kind people like Emma and Ben. The location of their wedding was the island of Menorca, very peaceful island compared to its sister islands of Mallorca and Ibiza (all three are part of Balearic Islands in Spain), with some fantastic natural beauties.
I’ve been quite a lucky guy being engagement photographer in London so far: every time there was an engagement shoot, we had a really nice weather, which for London is pretty unusual thing. Obviously, we’d plan the shoots according to the weather forecast, but you don’t have a chance to do that every time. So the first time we didn’t have a chance to do that, we got the real London weather all over the place.
