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.
The results of this year’s first round of Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) contest are in and one of my wedding photos won new award! You can see the photo in the post. Congratulations to all of my colleagues who placed with their photos in this round. You can see the whole winning gallery at the official WPJA website.
So many emotions, tears and laughs during the first part of the day and extremely fun party in the evening… Zorana and Mile got married in Split, in front of Saint Jere chapel on southern side of Marjan Hill - one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding ceremony in Split, Croatia. The reception and the party were organised on the terrace of Restaurant Benedict right next to the sea.
The thing is it’s not so much about the awards themselves, as it’s about what’s behind them. Fearless Photographers, ISPWP and WPJA are very significant and influential wedding photography societies and all of them hold quarterly contests for their members among which are the world’s best wedding photographers of our time.
I won 3 new awards in International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) Spring 2015 contest!!! Once again it was a great feeling to be in a position of finding my name among so many other talented and famous names and photographers I admire.
Fearless Conference came to Europe two years ago so it’s not that new. And right on time for that first conference which was held in Amsterdam, Nikola decided to go and visit, learn and find some inspiration. Later, seeing from his point of view, the conference succeeded in doing exactly that for him. So he visited the second year and the third year, this year, I came along to see, hear, feel the magic. And I was surprised by the things I’ve had learnt.
