10 reasons why I am an adventure wedding photographer

Updated: 2 days ago

I get you, guys, you are hoping to have a fun, relaxed, authentic & completely epic wedding experience true to your values. You don't want your day filled with awkward poses and forced smiles, but candid photos that capture your real connection in the moment.

I know very well that being in front of the camera can leave you feeling totally out of your element. Instead of putting pressure onto you to act in front of the camera, I create a relaxed experience while photographing the authentic you. I will guide you to focus on your interaction while giving you the space to have fun and enjoy the moment. I want you to feel like you are frolicking in the meadows while I am capturing timeless moments.

10 reasons why I am an adventure wedding photographer:

1. I value authenticity.

2. I focus on observing situations.

3. Genuine is magical.

4. Capturing candid scenes is meaningful.

5. I love people.

6. Routine bores me.

7. Quirky is my jam.

8. Immersing myself in unforgettable landscapes makes my life vibrant.

9. Being challenged is a good thing.

10. Telling epic stories gives me purpose.

A great way to get a feel of my shooting style is to set up a couples session, which is honestly a perfect remedy for stage freight. Later on, it also helps me capture your wedding with sensitivity and insight. When I start taking photos at your session, I focus on observing, rather than dictating the scenes. I’ll give you easy instructions, asking you to move and interact together in ways that allow me to capture candid moments in a flattering way. We might play fun games to capture the real you if you feel like you need to relax a bit more, with directions that include movements and feelings. You'll most likely leave your session feeling like you connected with your partner on a different level and managed to conquer another challenge hand in hand!

Every detail down to how you interact with each other to the real explosive laughter triggered by a tickle or an intimate whisper in your ear. This is exactly what I am looking for - I want to capture the real you!
