Our slogan says ‘glamour meets photojournalism’ – but what does it actually mean?
What is wedding photojournalism?
Is it a style? No, it is more than that. This is an approach…
As photojournalists what is our approach?
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.
Photojournalism, traditional or a blended approach?Which one is the right for you?
That definitely depends on you and your partner’s personality and how much you want your wedding day to be guided by your photographer.

The biggest hesitation couples have about their wedding day is how they’ll look in photos. Cameras have the magical ability to either make us love or hate how we look. Angles, positioning, lighting, and facial expressions all contribute to how you will appear in a photo. Pre-wedding sessions can help a lot to be more chill in those photos. And that makes all the difference.
1. Pre-wedding photoshoots help to ease feelings of awkwardness“But I am so awkward in photos, I always look bad. I hate getting my photo taken.” This is the most common thing I hear from my couples during the consultations.
Pre-wedding sessions give you a chance to work with your photographer and get rid of those camera nerves. This is going to allow you to feel comfortable with the photographer pointing a camera at you, gives an idea of being photographed and what to expect on your wedding day. Furthermore, it gives your photographer a chance to make you feel at ease and give you hints and tips.
Don’t feel bad. Of my hundreds of couples, just a few felt comfortable in front of a camera immediately. You are totally normal! But trust me when I say, it usually takes no more than 5-10 minutes to feel completely at ease, which will reflect in your photos.
2. Get to know your photographer, and help them get to know you
3. Pre-wedding photoshoots give you beautiful images to use on stationaryThis one almost goes without saying. Pre-wedding photo shoots give you photos that can be used for wedding stationery making it more personal.
Have you ever heard the expression ‘eloping’?
The actual meaning of the word elope is when two lovers run away together with the intention of getting married. These days, when people refer to eloping, they usually mean a destination wedding where the only people present are the bride and groom (sometimes a couple of witnesses or some friends).
