Q: What words describe your photography style best?
A: Intimate, authentic and real is how we like to describe our style of photographing. The story of each wedding is different and we love to capture it in the most pure and authentic way. Clients often mention about our non disruptive way of shooting, meaning we stay out of your immediate surrounding 70% of your time. This ensures that our clients can fully take in each moment without constantly having a camera in their face. It is your wedding not a photo shoot. Due to that we are able to capture photographs that reflect to true essence, feeling and beautiful unique moments of your special day. Of course, in certain situation such as still life photograph, and portrait session we give direction to our couples. During portrait session our main priority is it to create an environment that allows our couples to relax and enjoy the moment.

A: We pride us to deliver a high quality product to our couples. Each photograph is undergoing a careful editing process in where we give the photograph our signature look. We don’t promise any retouching of skin, hair or removing of objects to our clients, while most of the time during post production we do it anyway in selected photographs. It simply produces images that make the difference.
