Photography was always my passion and my dream job. It’s even difficult for me to call it a job, as I consider my profession as a hobby of my life. Meeting new people, catching their mood, being part of the happiest momentы of their life — isn’t it a dream?
Before every photoshoot I usually receive a lot of questions from my girls and couples. So I decided to gather all the tips I find usefull and I hope this information will help you and make our photoshoot more calm and comfortable.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever.
Month Before Wedding
We’ll have a meeting to discuss all the details about your wedding, you dreams and wishes. I’ll send you out a brief questionnaire about wedding venue, guests and schedule. All this information is very helpful for me and everything will go smoothly on day X.
We will confirm everything we discussed month ago, I need to make sure that there are no signficant changes. We will confirm time and place where we will meet on the wedding day.
The Wedding Day
This day has come and you only task is to enjoy it fully, no worries, you’ll get awsome pictures afterwords. My team and me, we will follow you during the day and make sure all moment are captured. The only suggestion here is not to worry and not to pay attention me and my team, just enjoy your day.
After the wedding day, I will work on delivering the photographs. Approximately in 2 month I will send a link to a proofing gallery, you’ll be able to select pictures for printing and download all images taked on your wedding day. I can also create a beautiful and unique photobook.

Decision on the location depends on the season, number of guests and your preferences. There are a lot of beautiful venues in the middle of the forest, on the sea side, near lake or river. I am always happy to share photos taken in different venues I worked at.
If it Rains
This situation can be handled in different ways and rain will not ruin your wedding day and you’ll definetly have great pictures from this special day. In case of the open air ceremony you should arrange umbrellas for your guests. In case of the open air dinner, make sure to have a tent.
You can get ready in your place or rent a hotel room or airbnb. For me as a photographer, it is important that location is bright ans spacios. So I recomment to choose apartment instad of a hotel room. But again, we will discuss all this details during our meetings before your wedding day.
Additional Tips & Ideas
If you’ll decide to have a color pallete for a dress code, it will e awesome for me. As such weddings usually look much better on pictures. Also you can consider of having a phone free weddings. All videos and pictures will be taken by my team, don’t worry and enjoy every moment of the day.
