What does ‘glamour meets photojournalism’ mean?
Our slogan says ‘glamour meets photojournalism’ – but what does it actually mean?
What is wedding photojournalism?
Wedding photojournalism is a way of photography that captures the events of the wedding day naturally and represents candid, unposed photos. These images capture strong emotions and fleeting moments. Photojournalism tells a story and is the most powerful way of recording a wedding day. The result is the best natural images that will evoke memories of your wedding, your friends and your family long into the next generation.
Is it a style? No, it is more than that. This is an approach…

As photojournalists what is our approach?
First of all we try and learn a bit about you. It’s our belief that a wedding story must be told in a personal and customized way.
As photographic storytellers, we love being an observer of real life, we capture events spontaneously to emphasize moments and emotions, in order to present the story of your day through the photographs.
As professionals we don’t want to direct your wedding day like a circus ringmaster. It’s important to us not to overshadow and interrupt the precious moments you are sharing with your family and friends. We want those to unfold in a natural way. We know that the most important moments happen ‘hidden’ and we are trained and quick enough to capture them.

It’s the little touches, glances and smiles which make a story alive and moments, humor and different characters make every wedding special. Moments captured candidly take you right back to the day of your wedding and evoke its genuine atmosphere. The beauty of candid wedding photography lies in the natural reactions of the people.
While wedding trends come and go, these honest photos reflecting real emotions will never go out of style, these are timeless.

We also know that a wedding is a glamorous event and you want to look your best in the photos. We pay attention to details and atmospheric shots which complete the story of the day. We also take family and couple portraits as a part of the storybook.
