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.
Natasha and James planned their wedding more than a year in advance knowing exactly what they want. The day of their wedding came just as the perfect reward: beautiful sunny day in the town of Hvar, amazing place for a wedding; everything happening just the way it was planned, Natasha and James being so kind and sweet people… We were enjoying so much!
One of the most exciting feelings about my job of wedding photographer is having the opportunity to see new places and meet new people, all of that while photographing. I experienced exactly that just few months ago when I met Yating & Neng, a cute couple from China. They came to Croatia for their honeymoon before the wedding so they wanted me to be their honeymoon or engagement photographer in Rovinj and Motovun.
